Yeah I even have Rudy Gay making it over Blake Griffin (above). I don't know much about Favors game, but I would guess it would relate pretty well to the international style.
I just feel he's a big body that can provide good defense at the very least. But sincal is correct, those guys are more proven and been around longer.
Not many people really know much about him all that well due to him sitting behind Milsap and Al Jefferson. I think he's going to become a household name here next season. I think he's that good. Again the guys still 20 years old, and he's still got A LOT to learn. That's a great thing. He's also got great attitude off the court as well.
My picks with 2008 experience and talent that plays well in the international style in mind:
Anthony Davis or Griffin (coaches decision)
Gordan (fills need of pure shooter ala ray allen/steph curry)
Williams or Westbrook (coaches decision)
He needs to rest...no point aggravating that injury. Lebron should play very limited numbers - as we all Durant and Westbrook.
Durrant pretty much put the team on his back to win the World Championship in Turkey in 2010. Igudala played very well in '08 and '10 also. His game really translates to the international game. That is why I left Blake Griffin as a coaches decision in my prediction. Pure athleticism doesn't guarantee you to be a starter in international competitions.
Yup he's on the select squad. I hope he gets on the team, I'd love to see him rep USA and be around all those all stars and pros. I think it'd be good for him. I don't think he would pull an Artest on anyone, he's actually matured a lot since the beginning of last season.
