I think they should drop Arenas and Joe Johnson and add Redick and Michael Redd. You HAVE to have a couple of jump shooters in international ball.
I agree to an extent. I would still like to have seen a Michael Redd on this team.
But, to their credit, this full court pressure defense is good, and when the olympics roll around, they will have Kobe Bryant, who this summer is rehabbing from surgery, but will be on the team next summer.
