    LOL wtf are you talking about ?

    You think the coach wont play Davis on Valanciunas because Coach K is afraid Davis will be shown up. lol stupidest thing Ive heard. why would Davis even be on the usa team then.
    For a similar reason Christian Laettner made the 1992 US Olympic team?

    Kobe
    Melo
    D-will
    James
    Westbrook

    Dwight, Bosh and wade missing in action.

    egomaniacs. every one of them. I know it is unlikely but I hope a smaller team can kick their asses and send them home.

    Yes, but why do you think there's a reason to avoid the debate?
    True. No reason. ) So do you think JV is better skilled than Davis?

    Agreed. Davis is on there to gain experience and for team USA to form a bond with him so that in 4, 8 and maybe 12 years when he's kickin ass in the league he'll want to be part of Team USA and do for the young guys what LBJ, Kobe and the rest are doing for him.

    It's why all these young guys get invited to the select team, they're hoping that if they ever become good that they'll remember how good Team USA was to them early on.

    Davis will play but it'll be garbage minutes when USA is up 35 with 5 minutes to go.

    the american team is pretty insanely good, i don't expect flying V to have much of a impact at all, to be honest. it'll be neat to see him playing against davis if it happens, though.
    I know you're really pushing for this flying V nick name to catch on but....you know what I'm just going to join you. Flying V it is!

    So it was a big honor for DD to be invited the correct? If so says a lot about his ability.

    Jonas will get his first taste of going against NBA top tier talent.
