It's Dream Team 2002(yawn) versus the world. Oh and China has some Yao guy.

Really, does anybody care about Team USA basketball? The concept got old back about 1996 and, as usual, some of the best players just take the time off.

It would be a LOT more interesting to have an actual dream team out there on the court:

Coach- Phil Jackson

C- O'Neal, Mourning
PF- Duncan, Brand, Garnett
SF- McGrady,Jordan
PG- Kidd, Bibby
SG- Iverson, Bryant, Carter

Well the last USA team we had nearly lost to Lithuania and had a hard time putting away France. I think the US would be near unbeatable with that lineup. As it is right now, I think Yugoslavia could give Team USA some headaches.

Yeah, I like Team USA. Jermaine and Reggie are on the team, after all-- double representation for the Pacers on Team USA, now can you dig that?

Of course, Shaqandkobe are (apparently) above playing for Team USA when asked. As are Kevin Garnett and Vince Carter. I guess they figure if it ain't the Olympics, why bother?

But to me, representing your country in international competition is a supreme honor, and one that people shouldn't pass on unless they have a legitimate excuse. Even if it isn't the Olympics. I daresay that if Team USA doesn't win the World Championships (and I still think they will, but it'll be close) that it will be because many of the best American players simply don't give a flying fuck.

I'll add this (as well as Shaq no-showing his own basketball camp with a 103-degree fever [a legitimate excuse; but he didn't call anybody to let them know whassupwidat]) to my list of “Reasons Shaq Sucks.” Whatever I can do to rile up the Lakers fans.

No one, as far as I know, is "skipping" it. They don't want to pick basically the same people every two years. So they try to spread the honors around a bit. I bet most of the guys who were on the Olympic team weren't asked or expected to be on this team.
