Default Brad Miller barely got used by team usa

Coach K apparently wasn't too big a fan of his skills, at least in regard to this summer's needs

I was pretty pissed at coach K. They talked the talk and all but they didn't actually do it. The International game is about unselfish ball, passing and shooting are huge factors here. Let's see Brad is a top 5 passing big man and the best passing C in the game. Out of all the centers he's probably the best shooter with range out to the 3 point line. But no wait coach K would rather use small ball and only have one big out on the floor or sometimes even play Jamison before Miller. Coach K's overrated and stupid IMO. My main line up would've been Hinrich/Johnson/Melo/Dwight/Miller. It's not the most talented out of all the guys he had available but it's a nice blend of rebounding, D, shooting, passing, scoring, etc. I didn't get to watch many games but from what I heard coach K was doing he frustrated the hell out of me.

This is clearly an uninformed post. Maybe you should watch the way he played this season and then say something. Obviously he has skills, don't be stupid.

I watched most of the games and it appeared that our coaches wanted to play at a fast pace (run and gun)--apparently felt that there were enough horses to wear opponents down. Brad doesn't fit well in that offensive scheme. I still believe that if we played Greece a number of times, we would easily win more than half the time. I like Brad's skills and am hoping that the new coaching staff will take advantage of his passing, screening, and outside shooting.

i agree, rabs_one = noob!

Team usa did just talk the talk, but failed to walk to the walk. If then wanted to go with a team suited for international play they would use the lineup Bradmiller52 suggested. Hopefully, the coaches in committee rethink their approach to the stategy before lnext year.
