Featuring nine members of the gold medalist 2008 U.S. Olympic Team and a total of 11 Olympians who have captured a combined 15 Olympic medals (nine gold medals and six bronze medals), USA Basketball revealed today 27 players who have been named to the 2010-2012 USA Men’s National Team program. The selections were announced by USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo.

“This is another important step in the reassembling of the USA National Team for the next three years of competitions that will include the FIBA World Championship in 2010, and if we qualify, the 2012 Olympics in London. Unlike 2006-08 when we were first starting the program, this time we have the benefit of including players who were members of the last national team, while also incorporating players who were involved in our pipeline the last couple of summers,” said Colangelo, who also served as Managing Director of the 2006-08 USA National Team.

“Special recognition and acknowledgement needs to go to the nine players returning from our 2008 Olympic Team. They have demonstrated that they are the heart and soul of our program and their commitment to continue to represent their country should not be overlooked.

“Just as was the case in 2006-08, the composition of the USA National Team will be fluid and by that I mean there could be additions to this group. We’ve learned to expect that you may have injuries; there may be special circumstances where players can’t perform, so you need flexibility with regards to the addition and deletion of players in the program.

“This is the group from which we will build our 2010 World Championship squad. We are taking the Worlds very seriously and know that this is the most important basketball competition in international basketball and it needs to be respected accordingly. We won gold at the 2008 Olympics because of the team we were able to assemble and build and we’ll all be hard at work to do that again, and finish on top in Turkey this summer.”

Returning to the USA National Team for 2010-12 are 2008 Olympic gold medalists Carmelo Anthony (Denver Nuggets); Carlos Boozer (Utah Jazz); Chris Bosh (Toronto Raptors); Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers); Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic); LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers); Chris Paul (New Orleans Hornets); Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat); and Deron Williams (Utah Jazz). Rounding out the list of Olympians on the national squad roster are 2004 Olympic bronze medalists Lamar Odom (Los Angeles Lakers) and Amar’e Stoudemire (Phoenix Suns).

Completing the list of National Team players are LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland Trail Blazers); Chauncey Billups (Denver Nuggets); Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder); Rudy Gay (Memphis Grizzlies); Eric Gordon (Los Angeles Clippers); Danny Granger (Indiana Pacers); Andre Iguodala (Philadelphia 76ers); Al Jefferson (Minnesota Timberwolves); David Lee (New York Knicks); Brook Lopez (New Jersey Nets); Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves); O.J. Mayo (Memphis Grizzlies); Kendrick Perkins (Boston Celtics); Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls); Gerald Wallace (Charlotte Bobcats) and Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder).

La Tunisie participe actuellement à un tournoi en France.
Elle a battu l'Angleterre (score assez large), la Côte d'Ivoire par 67 à 63 (2ème lors des derniers championnats d'Afrique des nations) et surtout la Belgique qui est considérée comme une bonne équipe en Europe.
Par contre, elle a perdu contre la Finlande sur un score assez large (plus de 20 points).

De tous les médaillés d'or olympiques américains, il y a deux ans à Pékin, seuls Chris Paul et Deron Williams devraient être du voyage en Turquie, du 28 août au 12 septembre prochains, pour le Championnat du monde 2010. Kobe Bryant, qui ne s'était pas encore prononcé, ne sera donc pas là non plus. Des absences qui n'empêcheront pas le Team USA d'être compétitif.
Quel sont les deux points communs entre LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Carlos Boozer, Tayshaun Prince, Michael Redd et Jason Kidd ? Tous sont champions olympiques en titre, mais aucun d'entre eux ne participera au Mondial 2010 cet été. La "Redeem team", comprenez l'équipe du rachat, qui avait brillamment effacé la désillusion du Championnat du monde 2006, aura plutôt des airs de déprime team ou de ruine team en Turquie, du 28 août au 12 septembre.

Des douze médaillés d'or de Pékin, seuls Chris Paul et Deron Williams devraient donc être de la partie. "C'est une combinaison de trois facteurs: le marché des agents libres, les blessures et le fait que certains n'ont pas eu de repos depuis longtemps, s'est justifié Jerry Colangelo, le patron de USA Basketball. Et je suis OK avec ça." Le boss de la fédération américaine avait pourtant indiqué dans un premier temps qu'il n'y aurait pas de passe-droit en vue des Jeux de Londres, en 2012...

Mais que faire quand tous ces All-Stars en puissance décident qu'ils auront d'autres projets ? Les écarter pour de bon et risquer une déculottée dans deux ans ? Si l'équipe des Etats-Unis ne sera pas aussi attrayante qu'en Chine, elle pourra tout de même s'appuyer sur des joueurs de talent, la NBA en regorge. Kevin Durant est, par exemple, de cette trempe. Avec Deron Williams et Chris Paul à la mène, leur cinq majeur aura quoiqu'il arrive fière allure. Mais eux aussi demeurent incertains. "Ils sont en train de s'arranger pour être là, mais Deron n'est pas sûr de pouvoir jouer à cause de sa blessure (au poignet) et c'est pareil pour Chris. Il n'est pas sûr que son genou soit parfaitement prêt. Donc ils seront là et on verra", a indiqué Jerry Colangelo.

Seule superstar qui ne s'était pas encore prononcée, Kobe Bryant a décliné l'invitation comme les autres. "Nous avons été en Finals trois ans de suite (avec les Los Angeles Lakers, ndlr), a-t-il expliqué à ESPN. Nous avons beaucoup joué au basket, donc cet été sera pour moi consacré à ma remise en forme. Je pense que c'est ce qui nous permettra de défendre au mieux notre titre une fois encore." Au cas où, son coéquipier Lamar Odom se tient prêt à endosser le maillot de la bannière étoilée. Les contours du visage du Team USA seront plus nets lors de son premier stage de préparation, du 19 au 24 juillet à Las Vegas. Environ trois semaines avant leur match amical face à l'équipe de France, le 15 août au Madison Square Garden de New York.

USA BASKETBALL:


USA Basketball Chairman Jerri Colangelo said in a statement the addition of 7 foot Lopez of the Phoenix Suns ,( He wiil join his brother Lopez of the Nets)
Mavericks Center Tyson Chandler and Celtics Guard Rajon Rondo which gives Team USA Talent and depth required in making sure we field the very best USA Basketball teams possiblel

I Hope That Adel Tlatli thinks about perfecting the zone defense because playing Man to Man would not be beneficial to team Tunisia.
Also, The team must use the clock and hold on the ball as mutch as possible to slow down the game!

Les joueurs Tunisiens doivent etre dégouté qu'il n'y ai pas plus de SuperStar dans la Dream Team ... !

Faut etre réaliste ya Jme3a, le Basket Tunisie est encore en phase de gestation, nos joueur sont tout maigrichon, tout fin et vous verrez la différence au niveau de la vitesse avec les autres équipes ...

Si je ne me trompe pas c'est la premiere fois qu'on participe à ce championnat du monde, c'est déjà un exploit, maintenant il vont joué c'est sur mais aussi se faire plaisir, c'est pas tout les jour que tu peut jouer contre un mec qui joue en NBA.

Et le fait que les superStar : Kobe, King James, D.Wade, Bosh, D.Howard ne fasse pas partie de la dream Team et bien c'est dommage (c'est le basketeur qui est moi qui parle :) )

Je pense que les USA compromete vraiment leur chance d'etre sacré champion ... Mais bon c'est les joueurs eux même qui ont décliné l'invitation en EN !

Kobe 9allek je suis fatigué je veux me reposer pour pouvoir défendre notre titre NBA la saison prochaine .. Blogha o5ra il s'en fou royalement de ce championnat du monde :rofl:

USA begins building a whole new team this week in Vegas

Posted Jul 19 2010 10:41AM

The next generation of USA Basketball will gather in Las Vegas on Monday and begin training camp Tuesday, in preparation for the 2010 FIBA World Championship, which takes place in Turkey from Aug. 28 through Sept. 12.

No members of the 2008 gold-winning Olympic team will be participating this summer, so USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo and head coach Mike Krzyzewski will be building an entirely new team over the next six weeks. And they won't have the ability to rely on the talents of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and company.

Team USA also will have to build its chemistry. That 2008 Olympic team had the same starting lineup as the team that won the FIBA Americas tournament in 2007.

Colangelo and Krzyzewski are bringing 21 players to Las Vegas. Eventually, they'll have to trim that list down to 12.

Here's a breakdown of the team in the recent past, and a look at what the USA Basketball braintrust will work with in the next few weeks:

*Starter (majority of games)

Point guards2006: Chris Paul*, Kirk Hinrich

2007: Jason Kidd*, Chauncey Billups, Deron Williams

2008: Jason Kidd*, Chris Paul, Deron Williams

The candidates: Chauncey Billups, Stephen Curry, Tyreke Evans, Rajon Rondo, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook

Billups should be a lock for three reasons. First, he has 139 games of NBA playoff experience. Second, he's a proven leader. And third, he's one of the only two shooters in the group.

Colangelo told NBA.com that Billups could also play the two, and the same could be said about Curry, the other shooter. Colangelo also mentioned Rajon Rondo's playoff experience, but as the smallest of the group, Rondo could be the least fit for the international game, where much more contact is allowed on the perimeter.

Defensively, Rondo should stand out, but Westbrook should also have an advantage on that end. The competition for the two roster spots after Billups should be fierce. That extra year of experience for Rose and Westbrook may make the difference.

Early Prediction: Billups, Rose and Westbrook

Wings2006: Shane Battier*, LeBron James*, Joe Johnson, Dwyane Wade

2007: Kobe Bryant*, LeBron James*, Mike Miller, Michael Redd

2008: Kobe Bryant*, LeBron James*, Michael Redd, Dwyane Wade

The candidates: Kevin Durant, Rudy Gay, Eric Gordon, Danny Granger, Andre Iguodala, O.J. Mayo

Durant is on the team and is likely to be the starting small forward when the U.S. takes the floor against Croatia on Aug. 28. The biggest unknown going into camp may be who the starting two guard will be.

You can separate the rest of this group into shooters and non-shooters. Figure that either Mayo or Gordon make the team for their shooting, and Granger would be valuable as a combo-forward. Iguodala is the most experienced and is also the best defender, so Gay may be the odd man out.

Early prediction: Durant, Granger, Mayo and Iguodala

Fours2006: Carmelo Anthony*, Antawn Jamison

2007: Carmelo Anthony*, Tayshaun Prince

2008: Carmelo Anthony*, Tayshaun Prince

The candidates: Jeff Green, Lamar Odom, Gerald Wallace

Anthony is an NBA three, but he was Team USA's starting power forward for three years. And LeBron James or Prince played the four when Anthony went to the bench. In international competition, you need a four who can shoot and defend on the perimeter, so that's why Kevin Love, a prototypical power forward in the NBA, is not included in this group.

Granger has the size to be a four in international competition, and Durant could see some time there as well. But there should be room on the roster for at least one or two of these guys that have actually played the four in the NBA.

Odom should be a lock with his experience and versatility. Wallace is a terrific defender and rebounder, and is actually the best shooter of the group. Green has been a part of the USA Basketball program for a while now, and always shows well in camp. But somebody in this group has to stay home.

Early Prediction: Odom and Wallace

Bigs2006: Dwight Howard*, Chris Bosh, Elton Brand, Brad Miller

2007: Dwight Howard*, Tyson Chandler, Amar'e Stoudemire

2008: Dwight Howard*, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer

The candidates: Tyson Chandler, David Lee, Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Kevin Love, Amar'e Stoudemire

As noted above, the four man needs to be able to play on the perimeter, so it's unlikely that you'll see two of these guys on the floor together for very long. Boozer wasn't even in the rotation in Beijing.

Stoudemire should be a lock and will be a huge pick-and-roll threat for Team USA. After that, it's going to be a case of what skills Colangelo and Krzyzewski want from their other two bigs. Chandler gives them length and shotblocking. Lee and Love give them rebounding and passing. Brook Lopez gives them a low-post game, while his brother gives them energy and defense.

Early prediction: Chandler, Lee and Stoudemire

USA begins building a whole new team this week in Vegas


Team USA down two centers as camp begins

Posted Jul 21 2010 6:50AM

LAS VEGAS -- With all 12 of the players from the 2008 Olympic team staying home this summer, there were already questions regarding Team USA's chances to win the World Championship for the first time since 1994.

Late Monday night, before training camp even got started, the team took another hit when it learned that due to pre-existing issues with his knee and eye, the Knicks were unable to secure insurance for Amar'e Stoudemire's new $100 million contract, meaning Stoudemire would not be able to participate this summer.

USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo received four calls and a text message from Knicks president Donnie Walsh late Monday, notifying Colangelo that the Knicks were pulling Stoudemire out of camp and preventing him from playing for Team USA this summer to avoid the risk of injury.

<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p> "That's the Knicks' right," Colangelo said before the team's first practice at the Cox Pavilion on the campus of UNLV Tuesday. "They have to protect their own investment. They just made a big one and that will keep him out."

In addition, Suns center Robin Lopez decided Tuesday morning that he will also not be participating, choosing instead to continue his own rehab program, rather than change up his routine. Lopez missed the final 10 games of the Suns' regular season and the first two playoff series with a bulging disc in his lower back. He returned for the conference finals against the Lakers, but played a total of just 20 minutes in the final two games.

"He feels he needs to stay on his own program," Colangelo said.

With just two real centers left in camp, Tyson Chandler and Lopez's twin brother, Brook, Colangelo made a late call to Wizards' big man JaVale McGee, who had a strong summer league and took part in USA Basketball camp a year ago. McGee was ready and participated in practice Tuesday.

The Stoudemire news was a bit stunning to the players here. The Knicks' new big man had taken part in a team meeting Monday evening, and has been eager to participate. He reached out to Colangelo this season to let him know that he wanted to be a part of this group. Most players didn't find out the news until they showed up for breakfast Tuesday morning.

<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p> "I was disappointed, just because I love Amar'e," Chandler said. "I love his game. I love his style. I love everything about him. I was looking forward to playing with him. But on the other hand, I can understand [the Knicks] trying to protect the future."

Colangelo was clearly upset about the timing of the Knicks' decision, noting "it was late notice" multiple times as he spoke to reporters.

Stoudemire was penciled in as the starting center for this team. He was the most complete player of the big men in camp, and as one of the best pick-and-roll bigs in the NBA, he would have been a difficult matchup for Team USA's opponents. He was also one of the most experienced players on the Team USA roster and one of only four with senior-level experience in international competition, having played in the 2004 Olympics and 2007 FIBA Americas tournament.

Now, the competition for that starting job looks to be wide open. Beyond Chandler, Brook Lopez and McGee, the Warriors' David Lee looks to be the only big man who could play big minutes at the five.

"The bigs that are here have a great opportunity," said Colangelo, who told NBA.com last week that the preliminary plan was to cut the list of players down to 15 or 16 before the team convenes in New York on Aug. 8 for the second phase of training.

No matter who makes the final roster of 12 for the start of the World Championship on Aug. 28, Team USA will still have plenty of athleticism and versatility. But there's no doubt that the loss of Stoudemire will make it much tougher to score in the paint.

J'ai regarder a la tele la preparation de l'equipe des USAs
et leurs 4coaches Coach K, Boehime, d'Antonio et Macmellan
sont entrain de preparer l'equipe surtout sur le Man/Man system
et Coack K disait qu'il faut qu'ils obtiennent la balle au moins 100 fois
en mettant la pression sur l'adversaire pour remporter leurs matches
Donc il faut jouer une defense de Zone comme je le disais depuis
longtemps et il faut garder la Balle le plus longtemps possible pour ne leurs donner
la Balle que 50fois au lieu des 100 fois qu'ils comptent obtenir.
ILs comptent avoir beaucoups d'Ally Hoops et si l"ally Hoop ne marche pas
le centre recule pour faire le pick and Roll avec le porteur de la Balle.
C'est une equipe solide malgrais les absences de Grands noms
Mais les Durant, Odom , Billups .etc ne vont pas baisser les bras!

Tunisia prepares for the Basketball World Championships
Posted ImageTunisia is wasting no time and will be in Turkey for a first preparation phase abroad.

(Discuss Tunisia basketball and Africa Basket in our forum)

Head coach Adel Tlatli and his national-team pre-select will be playing against a group of Import-players that are currently involved in the national championship on Saturday (27th of February) before departing to Turkey to stay there for eight days in the country that will be hosting to the world best basketball-nations this summer.

There, they will be testing against two first, and two second division sides to reinforce automatisms in offensive and defensive plays as well as to run different tactics on both ends of the floor.

The current team is missing its players currently active abroad like Marouene Kechrid, Naim Dhifallah, Atef Maoua and Amine Rezig who will be involved in a later stage of the preparations.

Runner-ups Stade Nabeulien and champions ES Sahel are spearheading the national-team with five and four players, namely the Hdidane brothers (Mohamed, Bechir and Anis), Nizar Kenouia and Aymen Trabelsi (of Stade) and Hamdi Braa, Makram Ben Romdhane, Salah Mejri and Zyed Toumi of Sahel. Marouane Lahmar, Mehdi Ben Ghenia (CA), Marouane Laghnej (JSK), Mokhtar Ghayaza (ESR) and Amine Maghrebi (USM) are completing the field of 14 players that went through a first stage in Sousse earlier this week.

It looks like the Tunisians are forming again a collective to display team-oriented basketball on the court to succeed, rather than relying on a few players to carry the team individually. Their recent success in Libya underlines this strategy as the country does not have a single player who stood out dramatically in the last African Championships.

Still, the World Championships will be a significantly better level on which Tunisia has to prove its uprising status, and competition will be a lot stronger than experienced on the continental level before.

Team USA leaves camp with an identity and a core

Posted Jul 26 2010 6:23AM

LAS VEGAS -- USA Basketball's week in Las Vegas had a rough start, but a strong finish.

It won't be until Sept. 12 when we find out just how well the U.S. can withstand the absences the 2008 Olympians (who all chose not to play this summer), Amar'e Stoudemire (who the Knicks' removed from the roster because of insurance issues) and David Lee (who injured his finger on Tuesday). But Saturday's USA Basketball Showcase was a strong indication that the players that are here can still form a team with a strong identity and a shot at winning the World Championship for the first time since 1994.

Your browser does not support iframes.

The most positive sign from Saturday's game, won by Kevin Durant's White team 114-96, was the perimeter shooting. In the international game, with no defensive three-second call and a shorter arc, a lot more 3-point shots are attempted than in the NBA. Over the years, the U.S. team's opponents have consistently packed the paint and dared them to shoot from the outside. And their success has often come down to their ability to knock down shots.

This team doesn't have the most high-profile shooters in the league, but it does have some young players that can take advantage of the shorter 3-point distance. And on Saturday, the Blue and White teams combined to shoot 24-for-51 (47 percent) from beyond the arc, with 11 of the 20 players connecting on at least one three.

"They're going to be able to shoot the ball a lot better than people think they can," USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said of his team afterward.

Saturday's game was also played at a high pace, with the two teams combining for 182 possessions in just 40 minutes. That's a reflection of the identity that head coach Mike Krzyzewski wants his team to have. With a lack of size and a plethora of quick point guards and athletic wings, the U.S. wants to pressure their opponents and run at every opportunity.

"We don't think the international game wants to see that kind of pressure constantly," Colangelo said. "And so we're going to utilize that to our benefit."

Derrick Rose proved he be the engine of the high-paced attack, out-quicking everyone else on the floor Saturday night to the tune of 15 points, eight assists and five steals. On a roster full of quality floor generals, Rose clearly stood out from the rest.

"I thought Derrick just played a beautiful game," Krzyzewski said. "It was easy playing with him tonight, because he gave you the ball in rhythm."

Kevin Durant was the star of the week, of course. He's on a level above everyone else on the roster, and he proved it with a game-high 28 points on Saturday. But Rudy Gay showed that he can be the team's secondary scorer, leading the Blue squad with 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting.

With the team desperate for an anchor in the paint, the most critical performance might have come from Tyson Chandler. The center struggled in the first couple of days of camp, but improved as the week went on and shot a perfect 6-for-6 from the field on Saturday, finishing with 13 points and a game-high nine rebounds in just 20 minutes of action.

Your browser does not support iframes.

Colangelo, Krzyzewski and their staff will cut the list of 19 players down to 15 over the next 24-48 hours and inform all the players by Monday.

Those 15 will reconvene in New York on Aug. 9 for the next phase of training. With a final roster of 12 not needed until two days before the World Championship begins in Istanbul, Turkey on Aug. 28, it's possible that all 15 will remain with the team when they leave for Europe on Aug. 16.

Some of the decisions Colangelo and Krzyzewski need to make will be easy. Others will be difficult. But the last five days have helped them not only form a team identity, but also get a better idea of who their core players will be in Turkey.

Though veterans Chauncey Billups and Lamar Odom had underwhelming performances on Saturday, they'll join Chandler, Durant, Gay and Rose as the players Colangelo and Krzyzewski build the rest of the team around.

"We're getting to have a personality for our basketball team right now and anxious to get down to 15, go to New York and try to personalize the team a little bit more," Krzyzewski said. He added that it's not about choosing the 12 best players, but rather "how we see them coming together as a unit."

"We have to try and project who fits and who doesn't," Colangelo added. "This team will be marked by playing a certain pace. Some may fit and some may not."

Though it's been together for just five days, the U.S. team has established both an identity and a core. Now, it has five weeks to work out the rest of the details.
