Wow.


Jerry Colangelo said Kyrie Irving was the one guy on the Select Team who can switch to national team right now

Surprising. Team USA seemed to be too dominant.

I think so too.

Irving is a better basketball player than Russell Westbrook since Westbrook lives off of just being a superior athlete

I sure hope so. Team USA isn't giving up much scoring by replacing Westbrick with Irving AND you're getting a pass-first PG in exchange.

There is this thing called defense...and Westbrook is way better at it than Irving is. Just had to mention that for the Westbrook haters in this thread and on PSD.

I wonder if he's pulling a Dream Team move on the scrimmage... makes me wonder if they've seen the NBA documentary.

On the other hand, the Olympic team line up isn't especially quick defensively. Some big defenders, not so many super fast perimeter defenders.

When I saw it announced, I suspected that very speedy point guards could really hurt them once they got past Westbrook...

Only time will tell. :D

Kyrie deserves a spot on the team. Especially if he's balling everyone up.

92' Dream Team lost as well in their first scrimmage against the select team.

I would honestly think about swapping Irving and Westbrook if I were Colangelo.

I'm not surprised in the least. There are a lot of great players on the select team, and there are a lot fo great players that weren't even at try outs. What's up with Bynum? Did he not try out? The USA team is lacking some size and they could use Bynum.

irving is a bad, bad man, and the whole league is about to see why next season. he's become a man real quick.

Cavs fans have something big to be excited about, and they deserve it.

Letting Westbrook go? No.

He is the best backup SG on the roster.

And i saw somewhere Irving is a pass first PG.

He averaged 5 assist per game. vs 3 turnovers per game.

His "supporting cast" was Alonzo Gee, Antwan Jamison, Samardo Samuels, Tristan Thompson, and Semih Erden.

Westbrook & Irving out, Rondo in, superior passer & defender. Just tell him he is forbidden from shooting.

Mmmmm Boogie. An NBA gm watching yesterday's scrimmage said he was unstoppable. Best guy on the court.

Kyrie could give them some shooting which is always a big plus especially in international basketball

Kyrie Irving will be considered the third best player in the NBA by the end of next year behind Lebron and Durant. Book it.

07-10-2012, 09:46 PM
I think Westbrook will be very good for team USA. He wont jack up shots like he does for OKC, hes extremely athletic and I think he will dominate on defense and run the floor. We dont need a pass first point guard we'll have Paul, DWill, Lebron and Kobe to run the show when in the game.

That's too high and he needs a better team. Can't be the 3rd best player in the league and not make the playoffs...

+1.

Don't think that'll cause a mini uproar with Durant and Harden? Just being curious by the way.


Irving should be on the team, I told you guys he was special all last season...

:nod: but watch as next season when all the new fans start overrating him. :(


I sure hope so. Team USA isn't giving up much scoring by replacing Westbrick with Irving AND you're getting a pass-first PG in exchange.

Irving is a lot of things, but pass first isn't one of them.

Yes you can. Since when is a TEAM achievement the blueprint for individual greatness.

I agree that 3rd is way too high for Irving and i doubt he'll even be 3rd best PG by the end of next season BUT it's not fair using his awful teammates as the reason why

KI will get his turn in the Olympics and he and Jerry know that. 2016 he will be an intergral part of the team, I am just hoping he will be with the Cavs still at that time. Every young player has to wait his turn and this is no different for the 20 year old KI.

Irving is a horrible defender so picking him over Westbrook is dumb.

Irving is a horrible defender so picking him over Westbrook is dumb.

How do you say he is horrible? Do you have statistics to back this notion up because while he is not a great defender yet which most 20 year olds one year out of the NBA aren't unless they are specialists he is not horrible. I would say average at this point.

If Team USA wants Cousins to stop talking ****; they might want to start by beating his team.

There's no 'European team'.

There's individual teams from all around Europe though.
