    You just knew he was going to make the team, but there is a chance he may be cut yet when they have to go from 15 to 12 players later.

    The US appears to be trying a new formula when playing international basketball. Instead of just picking the most talented players, they are trying to build a team with stars and role players. In case you haven't noticed, we've been getting our ass kicked for years internationally. I think it's great that Battier and Bowen have made the team; both play solid defense and bring those "intangibles" to their teams that coaches love. I think it's smart.

    Yeh, the US is trying a new style. That last few years the roster has been made of shoot first point guards. This time they have a pass first point guard in Chris Paul. I think this team is going to be able to work really good together.

    We're trying to win gold, not an amatuer poetry contest. Even K knows where to draw the line.

    The best man for what? There are six or seven other guys in this year's draft alone that would be a better fit for the national team, let alone the countless guys already established in the league.
