So over the past 5-6 months the US Olympic team has lost Billups, Dwight, Rose, Bosh and Wade.

What is the roster going to be?

As long as we have the bolded guys, I think we'll be fine.

deep of 100% multiple year allstars enough so no excuse should be valid if they lose.

Jason Kidd and Kobe were the captains, and J-Kidd was starting.


This time around, Kobe and LeBron are the captains.


PG: CP3
SG: Kobe
SF: Durant
PF: LeBron
C: KLove


Durant and LeBron do all the scoring, KLove gets the rebounds, CP3 is the facilitator, and Kobe is still the Doberman of the team.

Melo fits in well here. I think he will help big for them :)

If all the Spanish players in the NBA stay in Spain, they'd be all stars there too.

i wonder what load of crap excuse you come up with to defend your love for foreign players if the US wins...

we dont need excuses.

If the wolf runs away with the tail between his legs beaten by a home cat he needs an excuse.
If the home cat is beaten by the wolf, its nature.

homer alert...

How could Kevin Love possibly be left of the "required" alert? Especially at this point? Big man who can stretch the shorter floor and board like a machine?

Home cats are fierce unlike the wolf who is large. Spain will win. 77-74.

spain has lots of problems, no rubio, stupid coach, not 100% rudy, 3 or 4 new guys to adjust, navarro and paus aging.


the main threat for usa this time around will be France, they are young, athletic, most with nba experience and hungry.

I'm with you. I think Love is going to play a huge role. I expect him to play a lot of minutes, and I'm hoping he doesn't get overlooked by the coaching staff in favor of Blake of all people...

Melo typically plays well in international play as well, so I think we'll be okay.

As a Laker fan I don't want Kobe playing in this thing, hopefully it's just a minor role.

All that being said...Doesn't hurt to have Lebron too lol. We should be okay

No Bosh or Dwight. Gotta get Boogie in there. I promise you he will crush. He wants to be on the team so bad.

Pretty much this, although with Stern looking to start making it 23 and under, I think Davis should be there instead of Melo

I agree, and the experience would be so good for him.

I know he's on the "select" team now, any chance they'll actually put him in the tryout pool?

Should put him in that role at least! He is only 21 I think and prolly the 2nd or 3rd best center in the NBA...I think 2nd cause Bynum has Kobe and pau to draw doubles...the kings have...jimmer fredette!? Lol jk

I know there have been problems in the past and there is no chance it happens but I like Rondo on this team to facilitate and let Deron and Westbrook play off the ball when he's on the floor with them. CP3 only facilitator on the whole roster. Harden would be a great addition

Ricky Robio isn't playing so Team USA is locked for a gold medal..
