Team USA 2010

Everyone seems optimistic about USA re-redeeming the status as No.1 basketball nation in the world at the upcoming world championships. I am not. There is possibilities of it be a very nice looking team on paper though. If took the place of Colangelo this would be my roster…

C: None
PF: Danny Granger (or outlet king Kevin Love)
SF: Kevin Durant
SG: Stephan Curry
PG: Rajon Rondo

The key to the success of this 4-man roster is speed and extreme run-and-gun scoring power. My choice for the centre position would have been David Lee. If I can’t have him, I want no centre. Run just the 4 guys. That would be my solution.

The other options available for the centre spot were Chandler, McGee and Odom, who are pretty sad big men. Lamar Odom-Kardashian would be intriguing experiment in the middle but because he is a current Laker he will never make it on my team.

By the way, if you haven’t noticed, I’m loving these basketball player caricatures. The player featured above is Mr Rondo.

  1. C: Andrew Bogut
    PF: Joakim Noah
    SF: Kevin Durant
    SG: Joe Johnson
    PG: Stephen Curry

    • Bogut for USA? Never! Boomer 4 life!
      And JJ is the new Rashard Lewis… Overrated with a gigantic max contract for non-All-Star, especially obvious in 1-2 years time.
      Noah? Fair call. Didn’t see that one coming. Why didn’t he get a call up?

  2. Team USA official nickname is out – “B-Deem Team”. Australia’s best chance to win Worlds this year if they can learn how to play ball in the next few weeks.
