Vote: SportsNation's Team USA

 Chris Bosh
Should Chris Bosh have a spot on Team USA?
After a disappointing 2004 Olympics in Athens, USA Basketball is focused on returning to its previous international dominance. Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski will attempt to take them there, beginning one month from now at the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan.

The National Team roster features 24 players, but only 18 will attend training camp in Las Vegas in preparation for the World Championship due to injuries and personal issues. In addition, Ohio State freshman-to-be, center Greg Oden, has been invited to the camp although he cannot participate due to wrist surgery. The U.S. will take 15 players to the World Championship, although only 12 players can be active for any game.

We're still two years away from the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, but we'd like to know what your 12-man roster would look like for the best possible team to represent the U.S.? We're not asking for the 12 most talented players, but rather the 12 players best equipped to form a true team. Consider positions, roles and chemistry when making your selections.
