Default Create Your Olympic Team

You can choose any players you would like.

PG: Chauncey Billups/ Kirk Hinrich
SG: Kobe Bryant/ Micheal Redd
SF: Mike Miller/ Carmelo Anthony
PF: Lebron James/ Elton Brand/ Antwoin Jamison
C: KG/ Brad Miller/ Chris Bosh

I would let Anthony come off the bench to create some offense, and pretty much this team is stacked.

I'd take:

CT: Kevin Garnett/ Brad Miller/ Greg Oden
PF: Elton Brand/ Antwan Jamison/ Dwight Howard
SF: Carmelo Anthony/ Mike Miller/ Shane Battier
SG: Kobe Bryant/ Ray Allen/ Joe Johnson
PG: Chauncey Billups/ Kirk Hinrich/ Raymond Felton

And I'd let them all go at it, and see who the best 12 end up being.

We should all make a team that would be willing to COMMIT the 3 years for the road towards the Olympics, or else everybody would just stack the team with superstars.

Therefore, my ideal team would start practicing and playing exhibition games now and stay together until the 2008 Olympics. Also, some of the players I've selected are already on this national team, but some aren't:

PG-Chauncey Billups/Kirk Hinrich/Chris Paul
SG-Joe Johnson/Mike Miller
SF-Lebron James/Shane Battier
PF-Elton Brand/Chris Bosh/_______________
C-Brad Miller/Dwight Howard

help me think of another big man

I think if the Current US team had KG we would absolutely destroy teams, sorta like the Dream Team. KG could block shots, hit the jumper, pass the ball, and would be a great compliment to this team.

Put Shane Battier in at power forward. He's played alright, and doesn't get injured often. He covers 2,3 and 4 well.

And Big Ben has been proven to be horrible in International ball. Think, if he can't score in the NBA, with their generous rules / foul calls etc. Imagin a game where he is forced to shoot only jumpers. That would be scary. I rather have my moms on my squad for an Olympic team, than Ben Wallace.

Oops I didn't see Battier at SF. I only had eyes for chicken curry.

On a side note, Thats a good nickname for Eddy Curry, Eddy "Chicken" Curry. Or maybe Eddy "Pork" Curry?

I'd put Marvin Williams at the back up power forward spot. He's young but he can only improve.
