-Kobe Bryant -LeBron James -Dwayne Wade -Carmelo Anthony -Jason Kidd -Tayshaun Prince -Carlos Boozer -Chris Bosh -Dwight Howard -Chris Paul -Michael Redd -Deron Williams
First thing to note is, has anyone on the selection committee SEEN Jason Kidd play this season? It's not so much his numbers in Dallas (though, those don't lie), but he's just become a shell of his former self and he'll drag that team down.
The other thing I noticed is that the U.S. seems primed and ready to play small ball. Kobe, LeBron, Wade, Anthony, Paul, Redd, and Williams are all aggressive, smaller players that aren't afraid to attack the basket, but that hasn't necessarily led to success in the past against the world. The seeming lack of a larger presence, Howard notwithstanding, is pretty alarming. I think Tim Duncan's presence will be sorely missed.
It would be an absolute travesty if the Grizzlies don't make the playoffs this year. Their record doesn't back this up but they've looked every bit as good as the top 2 or 3 teams in the West. Hawks only being a 5-seed right now is annoying.
