Point guards Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry are considered Team USA roster locks. That left Wall, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving, who played at Duke under (Coach Mike) Krzyzewski, competing for 1-2 spots.

As the odd man out, (John) Wall now has a new source of motivation heading into the upcoming season.

“Yeah, definitely, always. You want to make every team you try out for. When you don’t, it’s more motivation for me.

“Not even (against) just those (Team USA point guards), but the NBA, period. I guess I’m overlooked again. I guess have to prove myself one more time.”
