Why should coach have picked Durant instead? Just a tip, but next time, when your questioning a coach's move, at least provide some sort of argument or a reason why he should have done what you think.

Reason is, Miller is better suited for FIBA and is a very solid shooter, easily superior to Durant in that category.

Maybe Mike Miller is currently better than Kevin Durant. I heard Durant was great in the practices but Miller just came off a 19/5/4 NBA season where he shot over 40% from 3. And hes more used to a role player situation since for most of his career he had to be one.

I can see why they would take him. Underrated player.

Durant is so much more versatile than Miller. And I've heard reports that he was the 2nd best player in camp next to Kobe.

Plus, if you punks had to pick between Miller and Durant on your team, all of you would take Durant.

This is why he didnt include his argument in the initial post. Its retarded.

This is about putting together a team. Not the 12 best players in the league. Prior USA teams lacked defensive stoppers, outside shooters, and "glue guys." At this point in time, Mike Miller is a better fit than Durant. Of course, Durant is more highly thought of than Miller, but it seems like the current formula is working well for team USA........

What has Mike Miller added to the team? His contributions have been next to none. Durant could have easily filled his role.
