Even though he's definitely one of the best young point guards in the NBA, John Wall wasn't included on the preliminary 28-man Team USA roster earlier this year. And while he did eventually earn an invitation to Team USA's summer camp late last month, he got cut from the team last week and won't be playing in the 2014 FIBA World Cup this summer. He's not happy about it, either, because he doesn't feel as though he received a fair chance from Team USA to actually compete for a spot.

"Nah, I don't think so," he told CSN Washington over the weekend when he was asked if he thought Team USA gave him a real shot to make the team. "But it's a part of the game. I'm just happy to have the opportunity to be there and represent my country. I wish them the best of luck and hope they can win gold."

It sounds like Wall also wishes he would have had more of a chance to make the team, though.

"I think [Team USA] already had kind of in their mind what they wanted to do," he said, "and what decisions they were going [to make]."

In fairness to Team USA, they did have a lot of point guards to sort through and it's hard to make an argument for Wall over any of the PGs who are still on the team. But it's clear that Wall wants to be involved in Team USA-related activities moving forward and he's got the talent it takes to represent the U.S. in international competition. So Team USA should get him involved soon before he's no longer willing and able to rep his country.
