The man who leaped tall opponents at the 2000 Games is back in red, white and blue. That's right: Vince Carter will replace the injured Kobe Bryant on the U.S. roster for the Olympic qualifying tournament in Puerto Rico.
Yeah, that's the ONLY reason why Kobe is not on the team; because he's injured ... sure.

Well, he did dunk over that French guy. But that's about it.
