your USA lineup...

your USA lineup...

Postby Crispy on Mon Jul 31, 2006 1:25 pm

if you dont like the current TEAM USA lineup, what would yours be?

my usa lineup:

GUARDS: chris paul, lebron james, shaun livingston, joe johnson, ray allen, gerald wallace

FORWARDS: shawn marion, chris bosh, bruce bowen, ron artest, shane battier, josh smith

CENTERS: dwight howard, ben wallace, marcus camby

i went with a defense and athletic approach, something international teams cant match up with.

I know that one was kind of hard for me. But I thought it would be important to keep players who don't really need the ball on the floor. If I put Lebron on the court then I would feel obligated to downgrade Kobe and put Redd in his place. Plus Josh Smith is a great role player who can any given night give you double digit blocks. He has nice D and moves very well (something very rare for a player who doesn't need the ball in his hands 24/7 to be effective). I'm not saying that Josh Smith is better Lebron, just that I think he's a better fit for the guys that I decided to start besides him (Smith).

star power baby. maybe i'd put VC in there somewhere too...cause he absolutely destroyed in 2000. and i wanna see him jump over another Euro.

it's interesting that no one has AI on their list. 33ppg doesn't mean much anymore, i guess.

For international playing.Its best to have a combination of long range shooters.Along with some good perimeter defenders.Some speed and athleteism wouldnt hurt either.
