Our country "dropped the ball" when they excluded veteran, players like Becky Hammon & Deanna Nolen. I don't know what criteria is used in picking the players, but we feel Rookies should not have been placed on the roster, unless there were no veteran players available. Its a slap in the face to the women who have proven themselves to the league.Ands as far as Becky Hammon goes, "lighten up people" its not like she's a double agent or selling secrets. Its a game, folks, and if Team USA doesn't want her, she needs to look out for number(1).
