2014 USA FIBA Team

Here's who I think (if everyone is healthy--including Rose and Westbrook) should be on the 2014 FIBA Team.

Starters

PG Derrick Rose

SG James Harden

SF Kevin Durant

PF Kevin Love

C Dwight Howard

Bench

PG Russell Westbrook

PG Stephen Curry

SG Andre Igoudala

SF Paul George

PF Anthony Davis

PF Blake Griffin

PF LaMarcus Aldridge

Alternates

PG Damian Lillard

PG Kyrie Irving

SF Kawhi Leonard

Now, I'm sure I will be wrong on some of these, and there were some crazy tough omissions. Obviously, Lillard will be in if either Rose or Westbrook can't play, and Kyrie has a good chance as well. But Rose and Westbrook have played on Team USA before and if they are healthy I think they will get on the team first. Curry will be on the team no matter what because he is the best shooter in the world. Harden, Durant, Love, and Howard are all locks. Paul George, Anthony Davis, Blake Griffin, and LaMarcus Aldridge all seem like locks. The team will definitely need another wing, and I had a hard time deciding between Igoudala, Kawhi Leonard, and Kyle Korver, but I ultimately went with Igoudala because it sounds like Colangelo likes having players on the team who have played before, and he can do a little bit of everything.

What do you guys think? Do I have too many bigs on the team? Am I a huge homer for listing Derrick Rose as the starter?
