2008 Olympic Basketball: Rosters Please

New, comments

12 teams. 12 players each. Easy right? Wrong. Over the last several days I've been working on previews for each team headed to Beijing. However, I've struggled to figure out what players will represent their countries (or other countries for that matter). Granted the US announced its roster. And I've tracked down rosters for Argentina, Australia, and Greece. Yet China, Iran, and others have as many as 16 players listed on their rosters. It's confusing. Even FIBA's website does not have the up to date lists. Basketball games start in just over 2 weeks. What gives?

[Update: At this point I only need Angola, Iran, and Lithuania. Although it really should be easier than this.]
