Is this the Worst United States Basketball 'Dream Team' Ever?

USA Basketball Team Training Camp
Chris Broussard: “Most of these guys aren’t even on the A-list of NBA players. Marcus Smart, Mason Plumlee, Thaddeus Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Kuzma, Myles Turner, Bam Adebayo?? These are good players but this is NOT a Dream Team. It’s going to be the worst American team since NBA players began playing. These guys make their money playing in the NBA, NOT summer basketball for TEAM USA. It’s got nothing to do with pride, these guys saw Paul George get hurt and what if they get injured? We’ve seen the impact of ‘Load Management’. They’re already complaining about the 82-game NBA season and now you want me to play in the summer for free?? As much as I love basketball, I hate watching the international play because the games are over in ten minutes.” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)

Listen to Chris Broussard explain why he believes so many star-studded NBA players have pulled out of the upcoming FIBA World Cup of Basketball as Team USA will feature a national team of solid NBA players, but none offering the type of billing that ‘Dream Teams’ have offered fans in the past.

Check out the audio below as Broussard says the national team should make a new rule that says the team can only be made up of players under the age of 25.
