    They nearly lost to Spain and shot and played like shit against Lithuania! Basketball is America's sport, yet we sent the JV team to represent us! :eusa_snooty:

    What are the issues:
    (1) No true or good inside player!
    (2) No true or good PF!
    (3) Only true Center is Chandler and he is nothing special and is well sub-par on offense.
    (4) The roster has 6 pg
    (5) The roster has only 1 true SG (Iguodala) and he can't shoot worth a lick.
    (6) The roster does not have any of the US's best players: Kobe, LBJ, Bosh, Stoudmire, Howard, Paul, D. Williams, Wade, Boozer, Pierce, Melo, Bynum, Joe Johnson, Duncan, KG etc.
    (7) The only players close to superstars are Durant and Rose, but they are still not at their peak.
    (8) Too many nothing too special players - Westbrook, Gordon, Curry, Ganger, Gay, Green. Love, Chandler and Lopez
    (9) Where are the sharp shooter? Yes they have Billups (maybe Gay), but that is it! The international game is about long ranger shooting. This crucial hole was apparant in the game against Lithuania.


    Guards: Chauncey Billups, Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Eric Gordon

    Forwards: Kevin Durant, Lamar Odom, Rudy Gay, Danny Granger, Andre Iguodala, Jeff Green

    Centers: Tyson Chandler, Brook Lopez, Kevin Love
