USA Men’s basketball’s 28-man roster was announced today and the usual suspects like LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony all made the player pool. New comers like Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins and Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal also cracked the cut for a chance to wear the letters U-S-A across their chest. No knock to the en kids, some of whom will play for Coach Mike Krzyzewski this summer in Spain for the Basketball World Cup, but there were some definite omissions from that list. While Coach K did acknowledge that no ones’s spot is etched in stone, we did have to ask how some players didn’t even get an invite?
Take a look at the players who deserved an invite to play for Team USA.
