Really? Chauncey Billups?

His time has come and gone in the olympics, no way in hell he would have made it.

This would have been the roster

PG- Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Deron Williams

SG- Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade

SF- LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony

PF- Chris Bosh, LaMarcus Aldridge

C- Dwight Howard, Tyson Chandler

Chauncey can still play. He would've made a good elder statesman on this team. I don't like Rose's game in the olympics. Rather have Billups poise and leadership.

If you're trying to match up with the Dream Team, I think you'd be better off playing to your strengths- namely athleticism. I would do something like this

Paul

Kobe

Durant

Lebron

Dwight

Wade, Bosh, Melo, Deron, and Chandler filling out the rotation

Kobe is there for leadership.

Rose has developed a good shot and his ability to get to the rim is something that international point guards can't cope with.

How is Mullen killing it and summer league and wouldn't play for Great Britain bc of an injured foot or something.

Great Britain could've use Gordon and Mullens vs team US .

Pissed off I missed this one, but it looks like Team USA dominated through and through.

Didn't realize the game was early, I thought it was at 7.

ESPN's post game coverage sucks. Wish these games came on NBA.TV. ESPN's analysis sucks, its all TMZ now, nothing in depth.
