Two years after winning Olympic gold in Beijing, Team USA enters a rough stretch without its best players, despite Jerry Colangelo's best efforts. Given the lack of superstar talent, which 12 players would YOU select to be on the team, and which starting lineup would YOU pick?
Not Attending: For reasons ranging from injuries to free agency to personal reasons, these players will not be participating in the FIBA World Championships this year.
Top Contenders: Given the lack of superstar talent outside of Durant, these have been considered by ESPN to be the top contenders for a spot on Team USA in Turkey.
Bubble Players: Most of these players probably won't make the team, but they have an outside shot.
I am interested in seeing who you think will have the greatest impact this summer for our team. Long offseason is long, so this will be another chance to rosterbate and debate whether you actually want Curry and Lee on Team USA.
