Taking A Crack At The USA Basketball Roster
While the official USA Basketball Men’s Senior Team roster comes out on Monday, I figured since today is Friday, I’d take a crack at guessing who’s on the roster out and then checking it for accuracy on Monday. Sound like a plan? OK, here’s our shot at the final 12:
From everything I’ve been reading about Team USA, it really does look like spots 1-11 are spoken for, with three of them being pretty much confirmed. The guesswork comes in at number 12, the final position on Team USA. Judging by the available pool of talent (see the On The Bubble portion), Paul is almost a no-brainer.
However, upon further review, you see the above roster only has two big men — Howard and Bosh. Does this mean Tyson Chandler has a chance to leap-frog his teammate and take the final spot? Of course, the above roster without Paul only has two legitimate point guards in Kidd and Williams. This means the final position will probably be decided on need.
If you were the coach, would you take another point guard or another big man? How about another pure shooter besides Michael Redd? The results of this quiz will be back on Monday.
