Members of the U.S. Olympic Basketball Team, including LA Lakers' Kobe Bryant, arrived in England today.
Bryant arrived in Manchester ahead of the Olympics, which kick off in ten days.

Other members who were seen coming through the airport included the Miami Heat's Lebron James and New York Knicks' Tyson Chandler.

Bryant told reporters that things look good for the 2012 team. He also addressed the constant comparisons between this year's team and the "Dream Team" assembled at the Barcelona 1992 Olympics, who easily won a gold medal.

"We're in pretty good shape. We've only played just two games though, so we still have to develop a rhythm, but all in all we're doing pretty well," stated Bryant. "Inevitably, when the USA has a team they're putting in the Olympics, everybody makes the comparison, but it'll be the greatest team ever."
