#LobCity #LAClippers Blake Griffin and #Blazers LaMarcus Aldridge will be added to 18 top players from the USA 2008 Beijing Olympic Gold team and the USA 2010 World Championship Gold team! Check out the team!

Returning from the team that won gold in Beijing are: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Deron Williams.

Back from the reigning world champions are: Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyson Chandler, Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay, Kevin Love, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Russell Westbrook and Andre Iguodala.

“I like the fact that we have a roster full of guys who’ve been champions, either in the Olympics or world championships, and guys who are excited to play,” Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski said. espn

#Stat was snubbed from the team after entry issues in the past. #Stat was a late withdrawal from the 2010 World Championship team because of contract and insurance issues following a new five-year deal worth $100 Million with the ‘new’ NY Knicks and MSG!

“It’s definitely not my choice. I would love to play. My loyalty is with USA Basketball, as it always has been,” Stoudemire said. “Last year I couldn’t play because I had pulled out, but if they want me to play, I’d be totally open to representing the USA.” – espn
