I hadn't found anything yet confirming Lopez as definite. Everything is still saying he is "undecided".

List is from Yahoo Sports Link

Correction: This story previously incorrectly said that Brook Lopez had made the Olympic roster. Lopez has not made the roster and the story has been updated.

US Olympic team is in Group A with France, the Czech Republic and Iran. Canada failed to make the Olympics, continuing a drought that has gone on since 2000.

It looks to me like it's time for Popovich to step aside in favor of Hammon....

I guess I haven't been paying attention. I was watching the USA-FRA game and wondering where the trapezoidal lane was. Turns out FIBA changed the lane to conform to the NBA lane way back in 2008. SMH....
