    so far i am hearing duane wade,King James, Mellow, elton brand. sounds like a winner!!. i know the boys is hungry after that travisty in athens. i believe they should focus on mastering the international game ( a game geared for slow white players). no larry brown to smother the talent. i would like to see kobe bryant, and k.g. as well.

    I know Kobe will miss this one , after having knee surgery but K.G would
    be a good bet .....I hope these guys go get the job done this time around
    USA had been a let down in these games.

    This looks like a good team but I have lost respect for coach K... ( who knows how to spell that last name) for one reason; the snub of Allen Iverson. When you assemble a team of the greatest players in america how do you not include him. Yet guys like Shane Battier and Brad Miller can get a run. Crazy.

    I think they are clearly trying to have a team representative of the USA.
    AI does not resemble the assimilated USA "image" any more than I do.
    Further, I think it's a matter of coachability. AI is not the type to be broken.

    Whites and the US have a problem with openly strong Black Men who refuse to play "the game."
    Particularly the ones who stand up and overtly tell them to go screw themselves.
    C Webb, Sprewell, AI, GP, Shawn Kemp... it's really only a handful in the league.

    I personally found glee in seeing the US get wiped out last time around.
    It's a mixed emotion bc I like most players, but I hate the country.

    i guess elton brand will be guarding ming? team usa needs to return to glory. the fact amerikkka rooted against them in 20002 is motivation. i dont like the fact that A.I. is not on the team. but i like their chances.

    I too like what i see this far WADE and JAMES with BRAND & Paul
    it would have made them even better with the add of two other players
    ALLEN IVERSON and KOBE BRYANT
