Coach Mike Krzyzewski and his staff must trim the roster to 12 players before the world championships.

The team will play five warmup games in Las Vegas, China and Korea before opening the world championships in Japan on Aug. 19

I am really glad that Chris Bosh made the cut. Coach K as been praising him a lot during these last few days in Las Vegas. It's really weird to see Chirs Paul make the team. It shows that he can handle himself with the big boys. I am happy for him.

They cut Shawn Marion i don't care about Adam Morrison and Luke Ridnour but they cut the matrix out of all the small fowards there. I think the matrix is way better then melo the matrix helped his team get past the first and second round of the playoffs well melo was at home watching.

Even though im a Washington Wizards fan, I have to say, Shawn Marion is an overall better player then Antawn Jamison. Maybe Jamison was doing very well in the scrimmages. Who knows?
