Does anyone know the average margin Team USA are winning by? They seem to be winning a lot of games by 20+ pts with the exception of Italy, although they still won by double digits.
One other thing. Bring in Bryant, Marion and Morrisson to replace Johnson, Jamison and Battier in 2008 and watch as it equals total domination for team USA.
(**Morrisson over Battier is a tiny bit bias, but i believe that Morrisson has better range, and that bringing in Bryant and Marion will more than make up for the Battiers advantage in hustling and good defensive plays**)
Hinrich might be the better player in 2 years. (he's horribly underrated right now) But I feel like we have too many young guys on our team and even though they'll all be 2 years older we still need guys like Billups, Marion and Kobe on our team to bring us some veteran leadership. He'll be like a Sam Cassell for us except younger and better.
CT: Brad Miller (passing big man, solid jumper) Chris Bosh (agile big man) Dwight Howard (muscle)
PF: Elton Brand (can post and has a solid jumper) Lebron James (does everything)
SF: Shawn Marion (be cleaning glass all day, good role player and great D) Carmelo Anthony (the go to guy for the 06 US team, perfect jumpshot form) Adam Morrisson (can shoot from anywhere)
SG: Kobe Bryant (him n lebron should be captains of this team) Dwayne Wade (slasher, unselfish, and hopefully by 08 olympics he wouldve developed a solid jumper)
PG: Chris Paul (could be the best pg in the leauge by then) Kirk Hinrich (high basketball IQ)
