USA basketball update: Jeff Green and Javale McGee were just cut, leaving the squad with 13 players and one cut yet to be made. Stephen Curry is reported to be on the bubble with Eric Gordon. I really wonder about that on a team with Billups, Rondo, Rose and Westbrook. Does the team really need that many point guards when they have a dearth of twos who can shoot the ball? I would keep both Curry and Gordon, and cut one of the non-shooting point guards. In other words, Westbrook. He is totally superfluous on this squad.
And by the way, the team is only keeping one true center — Tyson Chandler — which of course has John Hollinger squawking. Coach K is giving looks at the 5 to Lamar Odom and Kevin Love, and plans to play Granger, Iggy and Durant at the 4.
In other words, if the USA carries away the World Championship this year, they will do it playing Nellieball.
