  Does it make any any sense for men's basketball to be part of the Pan American Games? If you take a look at the rosters, USA roster is full of CBA players, Canada will play again withouth its NBA players (McCulloch is the exception), Puerto Rico is playing without Cassiano and Rivas
(not counting Mincy and Ortiz because both are retired from the national team), Uruguay is there just because Venezuela quit, Argentina is taking an even weaker team than the one which took part in the Preolimpic, Cuba is getting weaker every day because of the political situation, Dominican Republic, a team that has been a dissapointment in 1995, 1997 and 1999 has not sent even their best men and took only 10 players. Only Brazil is taking it seriously, so they are candidates for a medal.
