Even the Dominican Republic Olympic Team??
I think being able to own an NBA jersey automatically makes you a starter on the Aussie team! Our guys are terrible!

Barely climbed (yes, climbed) up to 30% from the field against China the other day! lol

I don't see how you could cut a productive NBA player.

I'm 6'2, does this mean I can play center on the Canadian team? lol Canada is great for many many things, basketball just doesn't rank high on that list.

I know that Villanueva is of Dominican decent but he was born in NYC and should be trying out for team usa even though he dosen't have a snowman's chance in hell of making it. I think that if you are in the olympics you should play for the country that you were either born in/and or grew up in but that is for a different discussion.

Sorry, I think Dalambert still has some height on you.

We've still got a long way to go to be a powerhouse, but we've got some decent young kids in the pipeline. Andrew Nicholson should go in the first round this year, and Myck Kabongo did okay with Texas.

And don't forget, Andrew Wiggins is the top-ranked prospect for the class of 2014. Tyler Ennis is a top-50 player, and the Bhullar brothers are intriguing.
