That DNP must not have sat very well with Rajon Rondo.
After getting a DNP-CD for the Spain exhibition game, Rajon Rondo felt he was on the bubble of being cut. On Tuesday, Rondo withdrew from the team, citing family reasons and other stuff he needed to do before the NBA season. Yeah, sure. Anyway, congratulations to Stephen Curry for making the team! We'll be rooting for you. The final roster looks like this now:
Guards: Chauncey Billups, Stephen Curry, Eric Gordon, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook
Forwards: Kevin Durant, Rudy Gay, Danny Granger, Andre Iguodala
Centers: Tyson Chandler, Kevin Love, Lamar Odom
As for the final exhibition game in Greece, Warriors fans will have to get up preeeeetty early for this one. Like, 9am early. That's not the end of it. All of the games will be early morning affairs. Make the jump for the broadcast schedule of the 5 games of the Preliminary Round.
Familiar names on Greece: None that I recognize. You can check the roster on the Greece FIBA team page.
Exhibition in Greece lineup:
Aug 25 - Wed - 9:00am PDT - Team USA vs. Greece - ESPN, espn3.com
Warriors fans root with the heart of a lion, but even lions have to sleep some time.
If you really want to watch these games live, prepare for a brutal early morning showtime. Some of these games will be live as early as 6:30am!!! If you miss the game live, you can catch the replay on ESPN2 later that day. NBATV might also do replays, but I can't tell what their replay schedule is.
