If you want a true view on how deep the guard position is for Team USA right now, take a look at John Wall’s recent comments following minicamp last week. While Wall is often looked at as one of the top 5 point guards in the NBA, there’s a good chance he doesn’t make the Team USA roster, which is something he’s said himself. In an interview with CSNWashginton.com Wall said the following:
“I’m just being honest,” Wall continued. “Chris Paul has already won one (Olympic gold medal). Steph Curry had an amazing last year and just won the World Cup. Kyrie just won the World Cup. Russell will probably be on the team. They’ll use him as a two-guard.
Wall believes Chris Paul and Steph Curry are two locks for the point guard spot with Kyrie Irving getting the nod as the third guard due to his play in the 2014 World Cup and history with Coach K. Don’t be surprised to see Wall use this as a form of motivation and have a stronger NBA campaign if he’s left off the Team USA roster.
