Team USA has yet to choose their leader. There are five players in the running according to various sites, however I believe that there are only two should be considered. I feel either would provide the type of leadership that Team USA needs to defeat the powerful Europeans.
As we know, Team USA has not performed well despite being the odds on favourites.

They both lead their respective teams with the most points and in the case of Reed, provided some fire sadly missing from previous USA teams. This year, Reed is back, but composition of the team is different and his antics might not fit this team.
