....according to ESPN:

Forwards
Carmelo Anthony
Carlos Boozer
Richard Jefferson
Shawn Marion
Lamar Odom

Centers
Tim Duncan
Emeka Okafor
Amare Stoudermire

Guards
Allen Iverson
LeBron James
Stephon Marbury
Dwayne Wade

Is it just me or is this roster, given the experience level, just a touch underwelming. This actually is agreat Olympic team...for 2008.

Looks like the Serbs have a great shot.

I like the team, and I'll think it will be more interesting this way. Let's face it if we send Shaq, Duncan, Garnett, Iverson, Kobe, Lebron, McGrady, then the USA wins in a landslide. I don't want to see boring blowouts, I want to see a good competitive game. If you send college players the USA doesn't win, this is a good team somewhere inbetween those two.

I love that Carmelo finally got in, along with Lebron, Wade, Okafor, Stoudermire, these guys are the future of the NBA and if they want to play more than the veteran guys then I'm all for it.

I don't know. They have a roster that actually wants to play and aren't quite so spoiled and childish this way. They can still win it.

Even if they don't, I like the young guys. Actually, I wish they would go back to the days of nonpros. We might get our butts kicked but it would be more enjoyable.
