Official roster for team USA

Postby ThaGrEEnPWRanGer on Mon Jun 23, 2008 5:37 pm

man.. i need me some mike miller on this team. i mean cmon, he was lights out last summer.


and no chandler? ughh...

frustrating. but ... i think the pure athleticism this team has will be enough though. ..

plus we got the Black Mamba. He knows how to speak other languages.

I love Mike Miller as much as anyone but he didn't shoot lights out last summer.

His numbers:
FG: 29-66 .439% 3 point: 19-50 .380%

I don't think he would shoot like that again, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

USA really messed up by only having one defensive big guy. Tyson really should have been included instead of Boozer or Bosh. Dwight is going to have games where he'll pick up quick fouls.. who will anchor the middle when he's out?

wow, i didnt know his numers were that low...

hmm, whenever i was watching it seemd like it didnt miss. maybe i only watched his made shots?

but he definitely would do better this year.

just use lbj as backup center. im sure he could do the job.

Yeah I agree he would definitely not shoot that low again.

I was just trying to make the point that we screwed up bigger by omitting Tyson rather than Miller. Redd can hopefully fill the shooter role, but now we're depending on Boozer or Bosh to fill the interior defense guy role? Naw.

I would have put Chandler on this team too, I love his energy and his defense, he plays with a passion, he's a guy that you can say 'yeah ok, they aren't just throwing stars together, they have guys that really care, role players'. Now, we don't have that, it's all stars again.


whenever i saw kobe in the finals, he wasn't at his best.. does that mean he should be off the team?? ppl's bias against wade is so transparent..

an earlier post had kirk over wade?! cmon!! no disrespect to kirk but he hasn't even been the best guard on his OWN team
It's the length of one day.. One half.. One shot clock.. This number is my promise, to dominate every moment..

Didn't realize everyone except Wade and Howard are sponsored by Nike. I'm surprised they didn't get Howard kicked off in favor of Chandler.

Only one center? You count Bosh as back up? He didn't list as center on this page.

Are we playing small ball? Run and gun? No player is taller than 6'11".

Wow...team USA is doing the same crap. Do they want to fail? Miller and Amare should be on this team no question. Probably Chandler as well.

Guys Amare is the one who declined to play. He didn't want to risk hurting his knee.

Their only real mistake was leaving Chandler at home. Mike Miller would have been nice, but Redd is capable of handling the shooting role.

and no Amare? or Durant?

Yeah they need way pure shooters on this roster.

What the heck is Dwayne in there for?Kidd??

We could've used Battier,Miller,Ray Allen, etc...

Did you read through the thread? Amare DID NOT WANT TO PLAY. HE'S THE ONE THAT DECLINED TO PARTCIPATE.

Mike Miller shot pretty poorly last Summer. Redd will do fine as the shooter and floor spreader.

THE TEAM WE GOT NOW, OUTSIDE OF KOBE AND LEBRON, is UNDERACHIEVING.

This is what it should look like

PG- Jason Kidd, Deron Williams, Gilbert Arenas (POSSIBLY Mike Bibby or Chris Paul)
SG- Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Joe Johnson
SF- Lebron James, Paul Pierce, Tayshaun Prince
PF- Carmelo Anthony, Elton Brand, Chris Bosh
C- Dwight Howard, Tyson Chandler


Does this look right??

Everyone sucked during the Finals...

Melo got shutdown by Space cadet, James shooting 35% against the Celtics, and Redd didn't make it to the playoffs, maybe we should get rid of these bums too... :man10: I do not want Kirk too...

Wade is still hurt, and sucked last this year... he doesn't fit in international games... they have too many guards and only 1 center...
