Jason Kidd and Kobe Bryant seem destined to play the Olympics. As Team USA resumes training Wednesday for the Americas Cup in Las Vegas, the two veterans are being cited as the main reason for renewed hope of gold in Beijing next summer. Along with Chauncey Billups, the two are the oldest members of the team and are expected not just to star but to stabilize. And in an interview, Kidd said he prefers international rules to the NBA's.
