USA Basketball chose their 28 man player pool for the next Olympic cycle. It's no surprise that Paul George was selected, and it wouldn't be any surprise to see him in Brazil in 2016. However, there are a lot of great players that get left off these teams. Whittling this list down to 12 won't be easy.
The Full Player Pool: Carmelo Anthony, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tyson Chandler, Bradley Beal, Stephen Curry, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond, Kevin Durant, Kenneth Faried, James Harden, Paul George, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala, Gordon Hayward, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Kyle Korver, Chris Paul, David Lee, Derrick Rose, Kawhi Leonard, Russell Westbrook, Damian Lillard, Deron Williams, Klay Thompson
Here's my initial guess for what Team USA will look like in Rio:
Point Guards: Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose
Wings: LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, James Harden, Steph Curry
Bigs: Dwight Howard, Kevin Love, Anthony Davis
