Battier is a role player. This team had nothing to do with who scores the most. If that was the case Iverson would have been on it. The best team is not necessarily a team that has all 25pt+ scorers on the team. Battier was there to be more of a defensive specialist. (Now it also helps that Coach K is his former college coach. If Greg Popovich was the coach Bruce Bowen would have got the nod over Battier.)
Arenas has just screwed himself from being invited back to be a part of the Olympic team.
