I went down to Vegas for the Team USA Scrimmage last night. It was a good time in more ways than one. Here is my synopsis of the events. Sorry for no pics, I forgot the camera on my way out the door. I took a pic with my cell phone but it is just a blur. I can post it as a FanSHOT if it is wanted, but it is hard to make anything out of it.
First item, Kevin Durant is a stud. He and Rudy Gay really played well. Durant is tall, probably the tallest behind Lopez, Oden and McGee. He is loaded with talent and is just a freak athlete. He is a lock for the '12 team.
Oden is huge! He looks older in real life. No matter how old you think he looks at 10 more years to that number and that is what he appears in real life. He even moves around like he is 38. I don't know how much he weighs in real life but he is pushing 300 easy.
As for the 3 Jazz men, Brewer looks like he has put on some weight. The good kind. His shooting appears to be improved, of course it's hard to tell after one game. He did hit a 3 pointer. I was disappointed in Millsap. He didn't have a bad game, but he didn't do anything that was that impressive. Korver looked good. I think he has the best shot of making the team. A spot-shooter is needed on Team USA to spread the floor. Korver can be the Redd of the 2012 team. He definitely is better than Michael Redd. He plays better defense.
Brewer played his typical game, and had the best highlight of the first half (a reverse alley oop dunk). Korver played a great game and was hustling on defense. Millsap had a so-so game and if you are basing on making the Team on that scrimmage then he did nothing to earn a spot.
Of the Jazz players to make the team Korver has the best shot.
