    Doesn't everyone get it that Plumlee is in fact making this team because Coach K sits on the Iron Throne.
    Totally forgot Plumlee played at Duke with Coach K ... Hilarious. Not sure how I missed that.

    Yeah, I think people are trying way too hard to justify Plumlee being on the team. There is no real rational argument to be made for adding him from a bball perspective.

    It doesn't make sense selecting a less talented player because you project him for a lesser role. A more talented player would still produce more if given the same role. You have to get a guy to accept that, but why would that be hard? These guys are picked partly because they have shown interest in committing themselves to the process. A list of legends of the game have all come through team USA and lots of them had to accept smaller roles. Even for all the crap Cousins takes, can't imagine he'd commit to this every summer if he wasn't willing to do whatever is asked of him. And on top of all that, if you have emergencies (injury, foul trouble, someone just choking big time), instead of asking a less talented player to fill a bigger role, you're asking the more talented guy to stop sacrificing and accept a role closer to what he's accustomed to.

    I agree bullshit.

    Might have to do with two things:

    1) Nike sponsorship with team USA and KD heading to UA (unlikely)

    2) OKC ownership pressure (more likely)


    Please not pure speculation on my part

    That is equivalent of 2 max contracts for anyone keeping track

    I'd take a risk on DeMar getting better. With no doubt he should get better, and hopefully he won't get injured.

    KD has championship aspirations this season so he obviously doesn't want to get injured.

    For DeMar its about getting better. KD is not going to get much better from team USA, and DeMar knows this experience is once in a lifetime. KD will have many more years with team USA if he chooses to.

    Has anyone pulled out of Team Canada citing "exhaustion" or contract uncertainties? No, I thought not.

    I am one disappointed North Carolinian.

    DeMar DeRozan is a lock for TEAM USA after KD pulled out of the event, I think DeRozan can make it given the fact that he might even start at the 3-spot for the team.

    lol. Think harder. Plumlee is out. Coach K needs Cousins after KD peed his pants.
