What seemed like an obvious choice earlier in the week is now maybe less so. With Brook Lopez coming off mono and having some conditioning issues and Team USA Coach Mike Krzyzewski looking to go small and athletic in his rotations, Brook looks like he only has an outside shot to make the Team USA roster this summer, according to John Schuhmann and NBA.com.
That’s a little disappointing, but I think my biggest concern is that Lopez be ready and healthy for the 2010-11 regular season. When it was announced that he had mono earlier this summer, I was kinda shocked how nonchalant the organization was about it, especially since Lopez lost so much weight. Just keeping my fingers crossed.
