Joe should of went instead of prince

Joe is one of the best 3 point shooters in the NBA today
He can pass, rebound, defend, shoot, and lead
He is one of those complete gaurds-forwards like Kobe

Battier. he was in it until recently and hes a duke player who will listen to coach K and he is the ultimate team player. brings tough D and spot up 3s

andre iggy since he's the best player on the backup team and can defend well and thinks about every aspect of the game not just scoring

Tyson Chandler, since he is a big man and they lack big men.

He's taking the summer off, because he's been playing so much basketball coming off of his knee surgeries.

True, wish he could play though, him and Dwight would make a good Duo.

Joe Johnson

great shooter, and can create his own shot. i actually agree with dude up top, he shoulda been there instead of prince. team usa could use some really good shooters. but it doesn't really matter cuz their still a strong team lol

If anyone than Amare Stoudimire, IMO, he fits the whole run and gun type offense the USA team will be running, and would just be a force against other countries on both offense and defense. Not to mention the USA is lacking in big men, so overall he would be the perfect fit.

sorry for whoever said KG or josh smith. they are not in the Team USA prgram. KG declined to be in it and smith was never invited. here is all the players in the program:

I have to go with Chandler. He isn't the best player on the list by any means, but we have enough talent and definitely enough guards. We need a big man. Someone to play strong in the middle and pick up some boards. So as good as joe johnson, durrant, and billups (I'm a piston fan and would love to see billups on the team) are, we just don't have a need for any more of those type of players.
