    Nice to see Parsons mentioned in the main paragraph with Durant, Love and Harden, with guys like Blake Griffin being listed in the paragraph starting with "the rest of the roster"

    I don't know if either of them will end up in the final 12, but it's great to see them getting that kind of recognition. I hope at least one can make it...if it's both, that would be really great for both of those guys and for the program!

    I think Beal might go. No chance for Parsons, though. We'll take more bigs and the 3rd 3, if we take one, will be able to play better D than him. Durant is obviously the starting 3 and George will be his backup.

    Remember seeing Parsons dunk over Griffin in a manly way?

    I wonder if any other Gators are going to play in the tournament. You have to think Noah is a lock for France if he wants to play.

    A very difficult objective these young men have accomplished.

    I wish them the best.

    Horford plays for the DR right? Not sure if his rehab will prevent him this year.
    Calathes is on the greek team
    Murphy I think will play for some scandanavian country (Sweeden or Finland ?)
    Hodge for Puerto Rico

    Noah could be on this team if he wanted to play. He's not French. He was born American and didn't even have dual citizenship with France until he left UF. I realize he technically could play for France, but it's not like he's got French loyalty or wants to play and can't make the US team. He was First Team All NBA and the NBA Defensive MVP

    I thought once he joined the French team though he couldn't be on the US team anymore?

    Oh I don't know about that. I guess I was just moreso responding to the commonly stated inaccuracy that he was born a French citizen and considers himself a Frenchman. Not that Gotham even said that, but I see it all the time

    He's already played for France, so he can't play for anyone else. He's not planning this year to rest. He'll probably play with Diaw and Parker at the next Olympics.
