Extratime is in Las Vegas at the US Olympic basketball team's training camp and it would be a brave individual to bet against this team winning gold at the London Games. They're the defending champions and boast some of the best talent from the NBA. One of them is Carmelo Anthony whose rise to the top came by way of the tough streets of New York and Baltimore. Now he and his teammates inherit the mantle of the fabled 'Dream Team' of the 1990s whose path to the gold medal was almost pre-ordained. Do any of their opponents in London stand a chance? Carmelo Anthony talks to David Willis.
