Kevin Love might have played Jeff Green out of a place on this summer's roster. Team USA's coaching staff loves Green's versatility, but Green struggled to knock down perimeter shots and had trouble defending Durant on the perimeter and bigger opponents on the low block. Green seemingly must now beat out Gerald Wallace and Danny Granger.
The U.S. team could be in trouble if its shooters go cold in Turkey. Without Amar'e Stoudemire or David Lee, Team USA doesn't have many low-post scoring options. Brook Lopez and Tyson Chandler won't provide consistent paint points, and the always-dreaded foul trouble could render even those two powerless. That aspect will be worth watching in the World Championship as it could determine Team USA's fate.
