we clearly aren’t sending the best players we can, that is a unarguable fact. But acting like this team still isn’t constructed of mostly the top 20 players in NBA is not true. The USA doesn’t need to send their top 5 every year because we are leaps and bounds above the competition. The team constructed currently is insanely talented and going by talent no team can touch them. Also you compared ’04 AI to current Derrick Rose so that is tough to come back from.
