There will only be 12 roster spots for the USA Basketball Team. Who are your 12?
If you would like, please include a reason why you chose those players over the other players that are candidates for the team.
If you did watch the scrimmage please provide you assessment of what you saw.
Scrimmage Box Score: http://www.usabasketball.com/mens/national/showcase_box_score__2010_07_24.html

My 12 Man Roster:
Rose/Curry
Billups/Gordon
Igoudala/Granger
Durant/Gay/Wallace
Chandler/Odom/Love

-I don't have Rondo on here because he turned the ball over a lot today and he isn't much of a scoring threat from the perimeter, a shot he needs to take a lot, since in Euro basketball they prevent the drive due to constant collapsing of the zone
-I preferred Gordon over Westbrook since he is more of a scoring threat as well and he looked really good from the 3pt line today. It was a toss up between Gordon and Mayo but I picked Gordon
-I picked Wallace over Green because he is a better rebounder than Green plus he is a better scorer
- I had to have Granger on here as well since he can play the 2,3, and 4 same goes with Gay, Durant, and Igoudala.
-Igoudala has a 3pt shot now!
-Love looked great today and he's perfect for Euro basketball with his 3pt range
-Chandler didn't looked too bad. He's a little late at times during defense sequences. Horrible Free Throw Shooter!
-Odom needs to stop taking 3pt shots PERIOD! They played him at center since he could bring the ball up after a rebound, which I liked, but he shot too much from the 3!

He definitely looked good...maybe him instead of gerald wallace.

Rose/Rondo/Curry
Iguodala/Billups
Durant/Gay
Granger/Wallace/Love
Chandler/Lopez

I picked Granger,Billups and Curry because they are 3pt specialist.. Im choosing 2 within Odom,Lopez and Love.. Since I picked Granger, I excluded Odom.. Granger in PF is like Melo playing PF.. and Gay at the bench could be Wade of USA Redeem Team..

Brook will pull out or something. Rondo has too much competition because Westbrook and Curry can both play the off guard, and can shoot. JaVale McGee should make this team, and even if he doesn't, he will be one of the last 16 or 15 standing.

They could use McGee the dudes length is just unreal, him over Tyson Chandler would be more likely though. But I have to think Gerald Wallace has a strong shot to make this team, He was unimpressive last night as he just stood at the perimeter and jacked up 3's and didn't really even come close on any of them. But he's a proven NBA allstar and one of the best defenders in the game today, Coach K preaches defense, G Force is his wet dream.

Greg Oden and Thomas would dominate.

Am I the only one who notices that hes been excluded from Team USA?

How does a 3X All Star, 2X All NBA guy not get to play for the National Team?

Endless injuries? He can't afford to risk another incomplete season.

I'm not entirely sure but it could have to do with the fact he was rushed back from injury during the playoffs and needs to use the summer to get fully healthy again...
