Could we see Gerald Wallace play for Team USA?

According to ESPN's Chris Sheridan, many of the NBA's superstars and members of the '08 Olympic team are dropping out from joining Team USA's roster for the World Championships this summer. Those players include LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer and Tayshaun Prince.

More after the jump.

So what superstars does this leave?

Kevin Durant (SF), Amar'e Stoudemire (PF-C), David Lee (PF), Chauncey Billups (PG), Rajon Rondo (PG), Rudy Gay (SF), Danny Granger (SF), Brook Lopez (C), Derrick Rose (PG), Tyreke Evans (PG-SG), Stephen Curry (PG-SG), and Andre Iguodala (SG).

I would have put Gerald Wallace (SF) on that list as well, but Sheridan leaves him on the bubble as well as the following players: Lamarcus Aldridge (PF), Robin Lopez (C), Eric Gordon (SG), OJ Mayo (SG), Jeff Green (PF), Kevin Love (PF), and Al Jefferson (PF).

Seriously? Is Robin Lopez really on the same level as the rest of those guys? I think not.

Anyway, this is probably the best chance for Gerald to get on the US team. I think I speak for all of us when I say I hope he makes it.
