Good choice. Team USA will be better off without him. In the meantime, he needs to put those pounds back on.

i agree, i think McGee's defense and athleticism will be a better fit for Team USA

This is good for New Jersey. Don't want to risk an injury to arguably their best player.

Yeah, I'd be thrilled as a Nets fan. It's nice to see your guys in there but it's also very worrisome that he'll get hurt.

Geeze - Probably the weakest front court we've ever sent out in a Team USA uniform. Still a pretty ridiculously talented squad as compared to the rest of the world though. Not too many big ego's, either. That's going to help.

Cool to see McGee get in there. It's good experience for a kid with a lot of raw potential.

Glad he made this decision, hopefully he can get back to 100% when the season starts.

He was the last true center the USA had. Really weak frontline now.

Agreed. How is team USA gonna stop a front court of Pau and Marc gasol now that brooke lopez is out? i guess it's hard enough as it is before lopez dropped out. I can see an upset loss to spain a brewin.

Pau isn't playing.

Tyson Chandler ring a bell?

I was hoping Lopez would be gone regardless. I'd like to see Chandler/Love at the center spot.

McGee jumps for pump fakes like no tomorrow. He was against Europeans big time, Team USA will lose to Spain for sure even if Pau doesn't play
