Team USA: The undeserving favorites

Trainer Mike Krzyzewski and Team USA are on the courtyard in Las Vegas to begin arrangements for the World Championships that begin August 28 in Turkey. The players immobile in the mix for the nationwide team take in Kevin Durant, who is a virtual lock to be the team's high scorer. Others in the combine include Chauncey Billups, Rajon Rondo, Brook Lopez, Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, Derrick Rose, Kevin Love, Gerald Wallace and Russell Westbrook.
Other than the list of those who are in the USA basketball agenda, but not present this summer, is a veritable who's who of basketball: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony ... the list goes on.

Haubs of the Painted Area finds that shocking, and actually thinks the U.S. should be considered underdogs to Spain.
