OK, obviously no collection of current players is going to be more talented than Team USA, but would an all-world team be able to keep it somewhat close?


Team USA (-7.5)

Chris Paul /Jason Kidd/Deron Williams
Kobe Bryant /Dwyane Wade/Michael Redd
Lebron James /Carmelo Anthony/Tayshaun Prince
Chris Bosh /Carlos Boozer
Dwight Howard


Team World (+7.5)

Steve Nash /Tony Parker/Jose Calderon
Manu Ginobilli /Peja Stojakovic
Andrei Kirilenko /Hedo Turkoglu
Dirk Nowitzki /Pau Gasol/Yi Jianlian
Yao Ming /Zydrunas Ilgauskas

I don't know if I forgot anyone, but you get the point... what do you guys think?

Steve Nash/Parker/Calderon
Manu Ginobili/Turkeyglu/Barbosa
Luol Deng/Stojakovic/Kirilenko
Dirk Nowitzki/Gasol/Jianlian
Yao Ming/Kaman/Zydruny/Okur

I think the only important dude you missed was Luol Deng, who is a big improvement from Kirilenko tho.

the thing that foreign players got is passing skills. they're not as athletic, strong, but they have a well rounded basketball IQ, as well as good shooting, and good teamwork.

I certainly think the foreign team can give some trouble to the U.S. team, but 8 times out of 10, the U.S. team will win.

That's not the best the USA has to offer though...you put the best the rest of the world has but not the best if America.

Yao, Dirk, Paul, Yi, and Kirilenko are all soft, Dwight would eat them up

With 7.5 spread I think they'd keep it close

ya...but some of our best players arent playing... Ever heard of Amare and KG?

If I was making our BEST team... it would look more like this...

Paul/Williams/Davis
Bryant/Wade
James/Marion
Garnett/Bosh/Jefferson
Howard/Amare

Well, this isn't a poll which involves the best possible team, it's a poll involving the USA olympic team... all of a sudden team USA's not good enough for you guys?
I thought of this because I was thinking what it would take to defeat the USA team, or within what spread a team could keep it.
if you want to discuss your "Best" team, then feel free to introduce a poll with them.

well seeing as there is no such thing as Team World I thought we were speaking in hypotheticals... but apparently I was wrong.
