Thunder guard Russell Westbrook withdrew from the team last week to give his surgically repaired knee rest this summer while Lebron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony, who are all two time Olympic Champions, are setting out this summer with hopes of rejoining the team for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
