They do have their own team, they'll practice against the final team after cuts. It's just a picture of everyone involved. I hope we get to see some of those practices, it'll be funny to me watching Jajuan Johnson get abused by guys like Lopez and Love. Physically Johnson's the spitting image of Durant. Except that he's a post player.
After being worried about Granger getting hurt, especially with the offseason so far (AJ Price broke his knee in a charity game, Hibbert banged his knee in a Jamaica scrimmage), I'm pretty excited about seeing him rep the USA. Hopefully he can be a major piece of the team and bring a spotlight or two to the Pacers.

I actually think that it is clever constructed teams. It is obvious that coach K stacked the legit bigs on one team. So guys like Wallace, Granger, Odom, Durant who can play 3,4,5 in international play can have some taste in guarding them probably will play a zone.
However, at the end of the day one team has OJ Mayo the other doesn't i'll leave it as that, ball don't lie.
