On Saturday LeBron James and the Beijing-bound U.S. Team practiced for the first time in Las Vegas since the squad was announced earlier this month. Everybody knows that Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are on the U.S. Men’s Senior National Team about to compete in the Beijing Olympics for the highest prize, no excuses this time. Four players who previously participated with the current iteration of U.S.A. Basketball, but missed last summer’s FIBA Americas Tournament, are back in action. Dwyane Wade (shoulder), Chris Paul (ankle), Chris Bosh (foot) and Carlos Boozer (wife’s pregnancy) had differing reasons why they were unable to participate last summer, but shared the same sentiment of appreciation to be involved in Beijing. The USA Basketball MenĂ˘ÂÂs Senior National Team will be profiled in a five-part documentary series, Ă˘ÂÂRoad To Redemption presented by NIKEĂ˘ÂÂ. The series, produced by NBA Entertainment, will debut with a special one-hour episode that will air Wednesday, July 2 at 7:00 PM ET on ESPN2. The other episodes will be aired on 7/21 (#2), 7/31 (#3), 8/5 (#4, #5). Browse through the pics below as you can see a lot of cool shoes worn by the players.
