On 7/25 Team USA announced 15 finalists for 12 roster spots for the FIBA World Championships. By Saturday, 8/19 at latest, Coach Duke has to whittle it down to 12. Then....there were thirteen.... Amare Stoudemire is off the roster because of his rehab from knee surgery. Gilbert Arenas is out as of today because of groin injury. Who will be taking a solo airplane ride back to the U.S.A.? P.S. Carmelo, Wade and LeBron are absolutes.
