USA Basketball Showcase

Why has no thread been created on this yet?

Who has impressed you so far and who hasn't?

It's only a short sample, but Derrick Rose looks unbelievable.

D. Rose is obviously a lock.

D. Rose is obviously a lock. I don't see how they can cut Lillard. To me, Wall has been unimpressive. Curry has been used primarily as a two guard.

He hasn't played a ton, but

He hasn't played a ton, but he looks fast and confident in his knee. It's crazy he's been out damn near two years and still looks WAY faster and athletic than Wall, Lillard and Irving.

crossing my fingers

Crossing my fingers that he'd remain healthy through the remainder of his career... Still feeling paranoid about what will happen..lol The Bulls would be scary as hell if he remains in tip-top shape...

This stint with the U.S.A team is good for him.. He needs to be able to familiarize himself with the game because he came back last season and was sooooooo rusty.. 15.9 ppg is so un-DRose like... This exposure will help him get ready for next season..

I think there are going to be

I think there are going to be some surprise picks on this team. I now understand why Plumlee could make it over Cousins on this type of team.

I think Korver is also a guy who could make it.

I've read they plan on

I've read they plan on carrying three point guards. Curry has been used primarily at the two. Rose is a lock. That means the final two spots are between Lillard, Irving and Wall.

Both Lillard and Irving have been way more impressive than Wall.

I cannot believe that just

I cannot believe that just happened, when I saw that single replay it was like watching Shaun Livingston again and I felt almost sick to my stomach. It just seemed to snap.

If we take Livingston injury

If we take Livingston injury as an example that injury took a great part of his athleticism, but eventually he continues playing after a long recovery. Hope he can recovery faster and better. How this can affect future USA basketball selections?? I don't see other teams allowing their best players to play for the national team. Pacers aspirations for this year are over I think. Now they would be regretful of not signing Lance to the max.
