Olympic fans can rest easy though since USA Basketball will have a chance to beat down Canada in 2016 at the Olympics.

USA Basketball recently announced a 28 player pool featuring some of the best American basketball players. These players are expected to participate with the team over the next three summers where USA Basketball will compete in the FIBA World Cup and 2016 Olympics. 

The pool, chosen by USAB chairman Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski, included players like the NBA's current scoring leaders LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony.

Winning the World Cup in summer 2014 will help the team out immensely. Team USA can get the summer of 2015 off if it wins the World Cup in Spain. If the team finishes second or worse, they will have to participate in a 2015 qualifying round for the 2016 Olympics.
