CryinInTheCar is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default 2010 USA Basketball Showcase Vegas game, July 24



Here are the rosters for Saturday’s USA Basketball Showcase, which will be televised on ESPN2 at 10 p.m. ET…

Blue: Chauncey Billups, Tyreke Evans, Rudy Gay, Jeff Green, Brook Lopez, Kevin Love, O.J. Mayo, JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook

White: Tyson Chandler, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Eric Gordon, Danny Granger, Andre Iguodala, Lamar Odom, Derrick Rose and Gerald Wallace.

I think it's going to be a good game.. The blue team has the size with Lopez, Love and McGee, but the white team has the better scorers by far..

Predictions??

I think the Blue team probably wins, as no one on the white team will be able to stop Brook Lopez... Tyreke isn't playing though due to injury, which is a big loss...

But the white team has a bunch of scorers, and the blue team is going to have a tough time defending Durant, Curry, Igoudala, Granger and Rose...

Who wins? What players do well?

If you look at the white team, you can tell that they are just sensing Derrick Rose's presence. He's just a star in the making. They all defer to him.

#75 is Singler from Duke?

Don't the college/amateur guys have their own Olympic/FIBA team? Or is he that good that he's on the main USA team.

All those players won't be on the final roster.. most will be cut.

Gotta see what Lopez does. I really hope he makes the team, and I think he will. Best true big man in the camp with no Dwight, Amare, Bynum, etc. not there.

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.

The op is trolling. Obviously the white team is going to win. Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose are suppose to be the two best players on this team.
