    Rio 2016... Who do you got?

    What are your early predictions for the 2016 Men's US Basketball Team? There are 12 slots. Here are mine:

    PG: John Wall/Steph Curry/CP3
    SG: Paul George/James Harden
    SF: Durant/Lebron
    PF: Kevin Love/Anthony Davis/Blake
    C: DMC/Dwight

    I think at least three players will miss the Olympics due to injury or not getting to start. Probably Steph, 31 year old LBJ and Dwight.

    Three alternates: Derozan, Klay Thompson and Drummond

    Coach: Frank Vogel
    Assts: Dwayne Casey, Jeff Hornacek and Mark Jackson

    I'm sorry but I have to say this...what do you think European players who are taught to flop before learning how to dribble a ball will say about Harden's flopping?

    No but seriously, gonna be weird not seeing Kobe in it.

    And Melo's definitely getting in. Unless he voluntarily doesn't wanna go.

    Lillard over Curry and Wall for me but I can see others seeing it differently.

    Yeah... Mamba will most likely be retired by then. Not sure about Melo... He will still have the name recognition though. I agree that Lilliard definitely has the best skill set. He reminds me a lot of a young Billups.

    Rio 2016... Who do you got?

    Melo was a huge part of the last squad ( lead them in scoring I believe). I'd be suprised if he isn't on the roster

    Drummond won't sniff Olympics until he he has offensively moves on offence and can shoot a free throw.

    I got maybe dmc, dwight, Hibbert, horford, and Noah as the candidates for the center position. All of whom are better and have seen plenty of playoff action (cept dmc)

    Kyrie Irving?

    I would say LBJ/Melo/KD/CP3/D12 barring injury are locks

    dont see Wall on this team. By 2016 I would imagine Lillard and MCW will be there.

    I don't see Wall making it and CP3 will probably be trying to save his body from the wear and tear. I'd put Kyrie and Lillard in there.

    Melo instead of Harden. And possibly Lamarcus Aldridge over one of the PF's....

    Horford and Noah are not from the US.They are already playing in other national teams.

    given his injuries you can't really pencil him in until he proves he can play like he did before and stay healthy.

    Hibbert also isn't eligible to play for USA unless they can get around the paper work which they are trying very hard to do
