Team USA Basketball: Andre Iguodala Is 'Shooting The Light Out' In Camp

In just a few weeks the USA men's basketball team will take the court at the 2012 Olympic Games, and according to many of the veteran players Philadelphia 76ers forward Andre Iguodala could be a big piece in winning a gold medal.

"He has been shooting the light out," says two-time Olympian Kobe Bryant. "His jump shot has been something that's been extremely consistent this whole camp. Defensley, I know he was there. His passing ability is there. Ball-handling ability is there. Really, you know, the shooting part of his game has been extremely consistent as of late."

One of the biggest assets Iguodala is bringing to the squad is his ability to doing the little things, says Lebron James.

"We need a guy who can do the small things," said James. "He's really going to be big time for our team."

Last Thursday, Iguodala netted 18 points, including shooting 4-for-6 from behind the 3-point arc, in Team USA's 113-59 exhibition victory over the Dominican Republic.
