Perkins, not Rondo, makes list for Team USA


The 27 player list for Team USA in the summer Olympics has came out, and does feature one Celtic. To my surprise, and most likely many of yours, the Celtic is Kendrick Perkins. You know what? No complaints from me, good for him.

No Pierce? No problem. No KG? No Ray? No surprise. The only thing that surprised me was Rondo not making the team, and Rose making it...maybe I'm just a homer, but I think Rondo deserves a shot more than Rose.

But back to Perkins...congratulations. Fight for it Perk, that would be quite amazing if he made the team (even though likely improbable).  A quiet, but solid, year from Perk...averaging 11.4 ppg and 8.1 rpg. He's came a long way from the player I was constantly screaming at every time he grabbed a rebound, then put the ball on the floor.

 

The rest of the list includes Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, Amare Stoudemire, Lamar Odom (really?), Al Jefferson (woo!!), Kevin Love, Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo, Andre Iguodala, Danny Granger, David Lee, Brook Lopez (at least the Nets have someone to root for), Russell Westbrook, LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, and Eric Gordon.

Any notables left out?
