      1. Clay’s d is so ANGRY!!!!!!!!!!!!! and Dame couldn’t make it because of how many others have to have the ball in their hand(cough cough harden).

  1. I’m surprised they took all 4 big guys (Davis, Drummond, Plumlee and Cousins) and not leave Drummond, Plumlee of Cousins home in exchange for another wing (Korver of Parsons). I do like the fact that they chose DeRozan, he’s another great scorer and playmaker if needed. Good thing to take Rose and let him come of the bench and make Irving a starter, he made a very good impression and showed a lot of energy on defense!

  2. Curry and Thompson were easy choice to make it, they help spread the floor and deadly, but Lillard not making it was kind of a shame. You know Coach K had that connection w/ Kyrie. But then again, Kyrie was on select team from 2010, so he had senority. Dame on the next one. And Demarcus thou?…played 1 game…idk.

  3. Why Cousins??knowing he has elbow issue and his temper might be lost again especially playing with international players…lillard???damn!!you can count in him in times of big shot..drop klay take lillard…

  4. klay thompson plays considerably better defense than damian lillard though. that’s a huge factor to keep in mind. also he may not be as clutch as lillard- few people are- but as a spot-up shooter he is pretty much second to none in the league.

  5. Damian lillard is better then Irving, lillard never got a chance. If kyrie hadn’t played at duke it would be lillard. Kyrie shot 4-11 last night

  6. Why not lillard, he’s a better point guard than Irving, at least leave mason plumlee home, I mean lillard would be better just sayin

  7. It’s BS that lillard didn’t make it. He’s better than Klay and Kyrie. Shame that players from duke make the roster just because they are from duke. (Plumlee). Not taking lillard will be their biggest mistake

  8. Great to see D Rose is back on court for this can’t wait to watch FIBA nightwing and hsuperman what do u think of d rose making roster

    1. Thank you for saying something positive on him, the dude is a freak and they need him, THAT is why he is on the squad. They will need size and with the smaller numbers of fouls someone has to eat them. Yet, most of the cats here probably only watch Fiba when the US is playing.

  9. This will be a defining moment for irving and Lilliard IMO. I think Kyrie will have a big boost comin into the next season as he will learn to facilitate the ball by playing with better players who demand it. I also believe dame’s next season will be critical to his career, he will either take a back seat to irving as the #1 young pg or he will play with a chip on his shoulder and embrace his disposition with hard work.
