With Dwyane Wade out, U.S. players think Russell Westbrook can inherit his role on the Olympic basketball team.
Wade was the leading scorer for the Americans in 2008, playing an attacking style off the bench. LeBron James said Westbrook can do the same types of things. "Absolutely, because he's that type of player," James said.
Wade is unavailable this summer after having knee surgery Monday in Miami.
No Saudi women
A Saudi-owned newspaper said no women from the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom have qualified for the London Olympics. The report adds that Saudi male athletes have qualified to compete in track, equestrian and weightlifting at the Games that start in less than three weeks.
