I guess there was some uncertainty with a contract extension or something.. or he wanted to rest (puts his body through a lot).. but i guess he really wanted to do it after he turned it down.

 

we need a lot more team first guys

I don't blame him. He must have been exasuted after the playoffs after he played at such a high level. You are right, we really need those team first guys.

Team has been cut down to 15, on more cut and it will be down to 12 which will be the squad that competes in the FIBA World Championships.

 

Luke Ridnour and Adam Morrisson are no longer on the team and Shawn Marion is out with a knee injury.

 

Updated Roster:

I'd say

 

Amare Stoudemire (from everything I've read he has been a beast so far)

Elton Brand

Lebron James

Dwayne Wade

Chris Paul

 

I think Bowen, Johnson, Battier could be the next cut. Unless they really feel they need a 'stopper' and take either Bowen and Battier then Miller may be gone.

They've talked about starting Bruce Bowen in order to shut down the other teams' #1 options...and it's a move I support.

 

There are more than enough scorers that can start - have one of Paul, Wade, or Lebron come off the bench as a super sixth man.

 

 

If you have to choose one, that's a bit of a no brainer, eh

 

:D

Anyone know if this is going to be televised around these parts? I'd assume ESPN would be on it, but I can't find any info on it. In fact, the only thing I have found is an absence of info where they should be info. The FIBA official site has a list of broadcast partners in a bunch of different countries, and the US has no listing.

Oh ya I totally agree. The only reason I listed Paul was because I saw Elton Brand being interviewed on PTI the other day and they were talking about how Paul might end up starting and one of Lebron or Wade would come off the bench.

 

I don't buy it and LeBatard was one of the hosts so it deserves a huge grain of salt anyway.

After reading K's comments (he has been glowing) I'd be shocked if Paul isn't starting. The best true point guard on the team.

 

Ya I'm looking forward to it. I never saw much of New Ahlins during the season.

 

You have to figure 4 of the 5 will be Howard, Wade, Lebron and Paul.

Well Stoudemire and Paul apparently have been tearing it up, and I think both Wade and James are very close to locks in the starting role just because of who they are. Would they put Howard next to Amare?

Ya why not? Have Miller as the backup C.
