    I would have to say that depends on how they fare against the European teams. These teams usually have role players that play basic team ball and will take a win any way they can. I think team USA is good, but they will only have a chance if everyone realize what their role is and what helps the team.

    Any team can win the World Championships, but the question is will the USA win it and my answer is yes, but only if they play team ball and if they can play the international style of play. They got a scare from Brazil and they only defeated Puerto Rico by 11, but those are two outstanding teams. Wait until they meet the likes of Argentina, Italy and Spain, not to mention Croatia and Lithuania.

    Yes, they can and I believe they will. Good coach, good players this year. This group of guys have all checked their egos at the door and are playing good team basketball, doing what it takes to win. They'll get in some close games, but they'll win it.

    I think they have the will and determination to win the WBC. Although an 11 point win over Puerto Rico isn't exactly a confidence builder.

    Yes,they will win. They've completely revamped their philosophy and player selection process to produce a "team" concept necessary to win at the international level.

    They have to be the betting favorites in Vegas to win by a large margin. They should win and most likely will.
