OKLAHOMA CITY — Five players with a tie to Oklahoma have made the U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team for the Summer Games in London later this month.

Oklahoma City native and former Sooner Blake Griffin, along with three members of the Oklahoma City Thunder have made the team.

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden all made the team, as did former Hornet Chris Paul, who played two years in Oklahoma City when the Hornets were displaced from New Orleans.

The 12-member team was announced on Saturday in Las Vegas,  and will be a heavy favorite to win the gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

All but Paul will be making their first Olympic appearance.

The 2012 Summer Olympics can be seen on Oklahoma’s News Channel 4 HD, starting on July 27th.
