Pietrus is always injured or refuses to play. Moerman will be there over him most likely. Juan Fernandez is not ready to play for Argentina's team at the Olympics.

They have numerous players better than him like Leo Gutierrez, Leo Mainoldi, Nico Gianella, Luis Ciqueira, etc. that would be on the team before him.

Kulagin? Antonov? No. Kurbanov and Sokolov are better players. And if Beverly wants to play, which is he says over and over that he does, then he will for sure be over those guys.

Also, Sergio Rodriguez is having a lot better year than Sada is, so he is more likely to make Spain's team at the moment.

And for the USA, Bosh and Aldridge are no locks at all. I would expect Blake Griffin to make it over one of them.
