May be

may be an interesting alternative team if other players (KD, Lebron, Melo and so on) refuse to play. I think you could find something better than Faried and Anderson. This team is intriguing but it lacks experience and therefore i would not be so sure they can get the gold medal ...

PG: Kyrie Irving-Think he is

PG: Kyrie Irving-Think he is the best and most clutch scorer on the whole team.
SG: James Harden-Clear cut best shooting guard available. If Kyrie is best scorer then Harden is right behind him.
SF: Paul George-Possibly the best all around player on the team.
PF: Anthony Davis-Struggled with injuries during rookie season but showed flashes. Experience with the Olympic team will help him.
C: DeMarcus Cousins-Most skilled big man. Athletic and skilled enough for the international game.

Reserves
PG: John Wall-If he uses his speed to wreak havoc on defense then he could get big minutes.
PG: Mike Conley-Most people would choose Lillard, but Conley brings more defense and leadership off the bench.
SG: Klay Thompson-With all the talent on the team and the international line being closer, Klay will light it up.
SF: Kawhi Leonard-Defensive pest that is versatile enough to guard 4 positions.
SF: Harrison Barnes-His size and scoring abilities will allow him to play 2-4 comfortably at both ends.
PF: Greg Monroe-May seem too slow or unathletic for this style of play, but his size and passing ability will help.
C: Andre Drummond-Size, athleticism, and shot blocking ability will be huge off the bench.

I may have left off some guys, but I feel like this would be the most complete team top to bottom

Edit: Now that I actually look at the players available lol.. Harden isn't playing. I would start Thompson and bring Beal off the bench for extra shooting.

Steph Curry is without a

Steph Curry is without a doubt on this team, the euro style fits his game perfectly. How is he left off these lists?

To make it clear, the 27 guys

To make it clear, the 27 guys coming to LV are competing to get in the pool of 25-30 players that Jerry Colangelo will choose of 2014-16. This pool will consist of Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Lamarcus Aldridge, Dwight Howard, Brook Lopez......
As for 2014 there will be a lot of the A type guys, not like 2010.
