    Once again no Greg Monroe. :(
    No Paul Millsap also but Kenneth Faried makes it.:confused:

    John Wall is the biggest snub. Deron Williams over him?? Is this a joke?

    At least we'll have Harden & Howard to represent us come the World Cup.

    Gordon Hayward over Parsons? It doesn't matter anyway as either one of them would get cut from final roster.

    Y'all think this will be how our World Cup roster looks?

    PG: Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving, Damian Lilliard
    SG: James Harden
    SF: Kevin Durant, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard
    PF: Kevin Love, Blake Griffin
    C: Dwight Howard, Anthony Davis

    I think this will be good for Harden... The greats will show him what it takes to be a champion.

    He's already won a gold, and I don't think anyone who makes that final cut has won an NBA title.

    You have to think that this is somewhat of a popularity contest or these decisions were made back last Summer with no adjustments due to play in the past year.

    Deron Williams over John Wall????..... WTF

    Gordon Hayward over Chandler Parsons...... hmmm

    Faried & David Lee over Millsap...........wow.


    -One things for certain they obviously are going to be shooting a TON of jumpshots... Korver, Thompson, Curry.... yep... there wont be very many points in the paint thats for sure.

    Eh, an injury free Deron Williams is still a BETTER player than an injury free John Wall.

    The Hayward over Parsons selection is up there as the most egregious imo.

    I can understand David Lee but I can't understand Faried over Millsap AND Greg Monroe.

    Chandler Parsons will take this to heart. I know it.

    that team has no defense. Harden shouldn't be starting. They'd be better off with a defensive specialist at SG.

    Parsons should be there over Hayward or Leonard.

    D-Will over John Wall is just crazy. He has no business being invited. But I'm OK with it as long as D-Will isn't included on the team just because of 2008 and 2012.

    Maybe they don't want Wall for some reason.

    You think LeBron will skip it? Has he said something about it yet?

    Wow Parson not being there throws me. He's a superstar role player. Exactly the type of player you need with all the ball centeric players that will be there.... that's y Faried over Millsap makes sense to me
