    No bigs? Taj Gibson,or any big men to help out foul happy Chandler…??? We didn’t need another guard aka Harden…

  • nbahofer

    Should of been EG instead of Harden or maybe a big man like previously mentioned.

    cosign slick rick. EG was a low-key beast in fiba

  • http://slamonline.com Datkid

    and yes… several more big men are needed. especially against spain. smmfh

    Harden over EG? smh…

    Gordon’s current situation is a threat of a distraction. And could have even affected how he played in try-outs. They also want versatile guys who play multiple positions. As good as Gordon is, he can’t play more than SG in the Olympics.

    Fair enough nbk.. Was that the rational behind iguodala? Personally I would’ve wanted another big man instead of him

    They chose this team according to penis size obviously. It’s the only rational explanation.

    Iguodala can guard 4 positions. He will be a huge weapon when they run that press. Plus he was the best defender on the 2010 team and krzyzewski fell in love with his game, or so I’ve heard.

    Team NIKE?

  • jakeadams@cox.net

    Wheres John Wall and idk that this team is better then the dream team but they are definitely more athletic and younger but some guys like durant westbrook and harden haven’t hit their primes yet. But the dream team had Larry Bird who was old with a bad back Magic coming back from HIV Barkley and Jordan where the two guys that were truly in their primes.
    This team could totally be named Team Nike!

    Wheres John Wall and idk that this team is better then the dream team but they are definitely more athletic and younger but some guys like durant westbrook ,harden haven’t hit their primes yet. This new team i feel is a lot more young but is gonna kill everyone else! My only worry is that this team won’t know how to play with each other like for instance Tyson Chandler is not gonna get many touches he’s gonna set screens and rebound. I believe that Durant and Lebron may actually work better together the Lebron and Wade. But the dream team had Larry Bird who was old with a bad back Magic coming back from HIV Barkley and Jordan where the two guys that were truly in their primes.

    And we all know Kobe gonna be Kobe and do his usual shoot every time he gets the ball no madder where his is on the court but watch them play better when he’s not on the court

    harden does not deserve to be on this team and they should have given bynum a place on the team… still plenty of talent though

  • kj

    this would have been a good roster; pg; Paul, Rondo, Rose
    sg; Bryant, Wade
    sf; Durant, James, Anthony
    pf; Griffin, Love
    c; Bynum, Howard

    Starters; paul, bryant, durant, griffin, howard
