Yahoo! Sports asked a few SBNation blogs to participate in their coverage of the Olympic Games this summer by picking out our favorite Olympics moments.

I'm not a huge Olympics guy, but the basketball is always fun to watch. Over the next couple weeks, Anthony Davis has a shot at making the Olympics team before playing a single minute of professional basketball... which is pretty outstanding. The team may be short on big men, with Tyson Chandler, Kevin Love, and Chris Bosh the only three bigs on the current 18 man roster which will be whittled down to 12 later this month.

As a Hornets fan, I'll always remember this play from Chris Paul (after the jump) in the lead-up to the 2008 Olympics. Hopefully Anthony Davis joins him on a U.S. highlight reel very soon.
