Thomas Beisner at KSR has this very interesting and I think cogent look at the choice of Tayshaun Prince for Team USA.
I think the Sheridan article he references is not very convincing, and is surprisingly hostile to the decision. It is certainly not clear cut obvious that he is wrong, but his case isn't exactly a model of reasoning, even for a sportswriter. In fact, it just looks like another low-quality rant from the bowls of
Barad Dûr Bristol.
