Spacing will be completely different and zone defences will lose a lot of their effectiveness. Guys like Chris Paul and Brandon Roy will be able to get into the lane even easier against international competetion than they do in the NBA.
My proposed Team USA:
PG: Paul, Deron
SG: Roy, Mayo
SF: LeBron, Gay
PF: Bosh, Aldridge
C: Howard, Oden
Paul, Williams, Lebron, Bosh, and Howard should all be on the team.
My proposed changes to your selections:
Carmelo over Gay
Wade over Mayo
Stoudamire over Aldridge
Also, where are the shooters????? Michael Redd, Kyle Korver, Mike Miller, or Jason Kapono need to be on this team. Redd might be a little old by that time.
I would also like to see David West and Al Horford in a USA jersey at some point.
I think Aldridge, Roy, and Oden have a shot at making the team, but Mayo and Gay shouldn't even be considered. Gay plays for a terrible Memphis team, which explains why his stats are inflated. He can't play defense and he's a streaky shooter. It's too early to tell if Mayo is a viable option at the SG position. He's a bit undersized at 6'4".
