Deron WIlliams has said his biggest thrill in sports was winning an Olympic Gold Medal in Beijing. Now, he's ready for London and a chance to repeat. He expects to win.

"I think its going to be a talented team regardless," Williams said Wednesday when asked how much injuries to players like Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard would hurt Team USA's chances. "I think it could be a more talented team than the last go-around."

Williams cited the team's depth and youth as well the four yeas of NBA experience he and others have had since 2008 when he was 23. He also told the L.A. Times the presence of Kobe Bryant as always helps. "It's good to have to be on his team for once and not have to guard him and keep him from scoring 50 on you," Williams said.

Training for the Olympic team begins a month from now and D-WIll has said he'd like to have his free agency decision cleared up by then.
