    Najera has been injured all season long.He might be ready in time for Puerto Rico,but who knows...depends on how ready he will be to compete afer such a long time. And team-chemistry is the key as well.
    Earl Watson could have been a good addition, but he might be out of the picture since he refused to play back then in 2007.

    whats the status of Alphonso Dyer as a basketball player in Mexico? I think he is son of a mexican, grandson of a Puerto Rican, so he can play for both teams.

    I got to watch Adam Parada when he played with a Jordanian team called (ASU) in the Arab Championship that took place last April here in Beirut, Lebanon.
    He was a descent player but I honestly didn't think he would be the starting center of the Mexican NT (I thought Mexico would have a better center than that). But then again Najera is way better than the rest of his teammates so i'm assuming that the talent level on this team is not all of the same level.

    Llamas in his prime was the best center of Mexico, but he is old right now.

    Sure. But his rough style and great 3P shot can be very useful for a few minutes every game, although not as a starter.
