- On a Mission: On Sunday, the U.S. men's basketball team won their Olympic opener, knocking off France 98-71. Who, if anyone, could pose a threat to Team USA's pursuit of the gold? We'll tell you.

- Legacy Damage?: If Michael Phelps continues to struggle in these Olympic Games, how much will his overall legacy be affected? Our answers might surprise you.

- Men on the Move: With players such as Ichiro Suzuki, Hanley Ramirez, and Zach Greinke finding new homes before the MLB trade deadline, who could be the guy that puts his new team over-the-top in the postseason? We break it down.

- Mail Time: We answer multiple listener and viewer email questions, including -- how impressed we've been with the Reds of late, if we believe the Red Sox can get back in the playoff race, how we think Maurice Jones-Drew's holdout will play out in Jacksonville, and what our take is on the Saints apparent obsession with suspended head coach Sean Payton.

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
