Andre Iguodala a Finalist for Team USA, Olympics 2012

According to Andre Iguodala via John Finger of CSN Philly, the face of the Sixers franchise is a finalist for Team USA, who will compete in London for Olympics 2012.

Iguodala said he was contacted by USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo this week about being one of the 18 players in consideration for the Olympic team.

The roster will consist of 12 players and six alternates. Iguodala was on the team of 12 who went 9-0 in the basketball World Championships along with Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyson Chandler, Russell Westbrook, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Danny Granger, Stephen Curry, Kevin Love, Rudy Gay and Eric Gordon. I imagine those 11 players are also being considered for the Olympics, along with a few others.

I didn't think Iguodala would make the World Championships roster, and I don't think he'll make the Olympics roster, but he's already proven me wrong once. He was at his absolute best in his role on the World Championships team.
