I agree, it is rather weird he isn't attending. Maybe he's working really hard in the offseason....on releasing a custom shoe :roll:
Im currios if it was his decision or if they just left him off.

I find it hard to believe he'd decide not to be on the team. More likely they left him off for some reason

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

Well that clears it up

Injury? Holidaying in Europe? Just can't be bothered?

I don't mind as long as he's training and working out on his own.

I'm not super disappointed or anything like that. I just think the whole Team USA experience is extremely rewarding and there's a lot to be gained on there.

Agreed. I think playing with talented teammates would be good for him and honestly bonding and networking with high profile stars could be good as well. Booker should be recruiting guys to come to Phoenix

I care less about the networking and recruiting aspect and care far more about being surrounded with winners and elite players who just have the right mindset for success. When he was with the national team I think last off season, I thought it was evident that he really improved his leadership skills this past season.

Being around the national team can only be a good thing

Knowing how cheap is $arver are you sure he would want to pay both Booker and Ayton max contracts? I'm almost sure one of them will get traded before Ayton signs his new contract.

I think he might be having a couple kids born this summer, that might be why he's sitting this one out.
