    The Star - The USA finalized their 15-man roster on Tuesday, which includes LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Shane Battier, Bruce Bowen, Elton Brand, Dwight Howard, Antawn Jamison, Joe Johnson, Brad Miller, Gilbert Arenas, Amare Stoudemire, Kirk Hinrich, Chris Bosh and Chris Paul.

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

    Shawn Marion, Adam Morrison and Luke Ridnour were cut in this round.

    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.

    Is this the national team for USA?
    Good to see Wade in it
     
  10. 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?
