When will they decide the roster? I'm wondering if Derrick Rose will be on the team. Anyone know?

I think this is all the news so far, it only says that Coach K is coming back

HELL NO. Derrick Rose is not going to be on Team USA...he wont make it over Chris Paul and D Will and a handfull of other PGs that would go before Rose ever would. Too young and not good enough. He isnt an elite pg yet man, so lets not treat him like he is one. Only the best get to play for team USA.

One would think that Kobe and CP3 have the right of first refusal.

DRose is good and should have a great career but he's still only going into his second year. He has 2-3 years left to prove he can ball for Team USA. Remember, we take the best players, not a certain amount of talent per position. CP3/DWILL/WADE/LEBRON can all bring the rock up and score, hell...even Kobe at times. I don't see Rose passing up those guys anytime soon. But hey, he's only 2 years into the league...it's too early to call that one.

Well, they're probably going to have three point guards on the roster, and Jason Kidd is unlikely to be a part of the team. Supposedly Rose has made a great impression on the guys that are putting the team together, so I'd say his chances of making it are better than 50/50.

^^^^ dude, you are wrong on so many levels.

^^^^ dude, you are wrong on so many levels.

CP and D-Will are PGs 1 and 2 for sure. The third guy I'd want out there is Chauncey Billups.. but if he is a no go, then I would want Derrick Rose...

so maybe..

It was said that Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose have the most promise of all of those who took part in the US Mini-camp this summer, now idk if that means they are shoe-ins to make the squad but they are optimistic about them so who knows?

drose will probably be an alternate. i see harris on the team before rose. harris can score or be asked to be a defensive stopper.

btw, who is that on your avatar and your sig raph12?

yall are crazy....they DO NOT stack it 3 positions deep you. They do it by best players. Wade could play PG... get what Im saying? They dont neccessarily do it that way...3 pg's deep. The all-star game doesnt either...they do it Guar Guard Forward Forward Center times 2

08-13-2009, 01:05 PM
^^ exactly.

Also, Brandon Roy and Durant will be on the team before DRose...it's not that DRose is bad, it's just...he's not CP3 or DWill or Wade

Id rather have Joe Johnson before DRose too.

08-13-2009, 01:36 PM
^^^ Exactly, for sure. D Rose is waaaaaay down the list of players I want representing my country in OUR game of basketball.

Mark my words, team USA will have three point guards. The eleventh and twelfth guys on the team will be a third point guard and a third F/C.

Supposedly Harris didn't have a very impressive showing at the mini-camp.
