How many is enough?
Now I know Coach K is a genius, and I know that a lot of the big stars opted out, I know that it's only the FIBA World Championships, and I know about the trapezoid.
But, according to Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe, there are 6 point guards on the roster?
"After a six-day training camp in Las Vegas last week, USA Basketball trimmed its roster yesterday afternoon, and Celtics All-Star Rajon Rondo is one of the 15 players (including six point guards) remaining."
Let's see. There's Rondo, Billups, Westbrook, Rose, Gordon. That's 5. Does Steph Curry play the point? Really? If so, that's an awesome (and typical) Don Nelson misallocation of talent.
Even 5 is a lot though, innit?
Don't we need a bunch of bangers to soak up fouls and try to compensate for us not having dominant big men?
Wouldn't Nick Collison be a much better 3rd Thunder player on the team that Jeff Green?
I never thought I'd say anything like this and Tyler will likely hurt himself laughing, but where's Brendan Hayward? (OMG, I hate myself so much right now).
Can KD and the midgets win this thing?
