LAS VEGAS — USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV.

The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the players will actually be going all out, considering that effort and team play is being evaluated above all else by Jerry Colangelo, Mike Krzyzewski, and the rest of the Team USA brain trust.

    If I was to make a 12 man team out of this bunch it would be

    Starting 5

    C – DeMarcus Cousins
    PF – Kenneth Faried
    SF – Paul George
    SG – Kyrie Irving
    PG – John Wall

    Wasnt a great a SG so just have Irving and Wall on the court at the same time

    7 man reserves

    Anthony Davis
    Damian Lillard
    Klay Thompson
    Andre Drummond
    Jrue Holliday
    Ryan Anderson
    DeMar Derozan

      Because Thibs is coaching the blue team.

    I don’t see any way the blue team loses that one.

    I like the teams. It will benefit the youngsters to play against their betters, and Thibs will get the best outta them

    White team will wreck it.

    I thought Steph Curry was going to be part of the USA team?
