July 30, 2008 - Eleven days from now, the men's basketball competition at the 2008 Summer Olympics will begin with twelve teams competing: China, Germany, Iran, Australia, Angola, Argentina, USA, Russia, Lithuania, Croatia, Greece, and the current FIBA World Champions, Spain.

Of course, we could wait until the Gold Medal Game on August 24 to find out who the best team in the world is, but why wait when we can just boot up NBA Live '09, use the international teams included with the game, and simulate the tournament ourselves? That's exactly what we did, and you may very well be surprised by who turns out to be the victor.

Here's the link

I didn't know John Amaechi was going to play in the Olympics. (BTW most of the ratings are BOGUS)

lol that's funny, aside from the NBA stars, the other players are ranked from the 60s-70s, no higher than that.

They have like one guy every 3 teams who are an 80. They still gave the gold to Spain.

Why are there so many teams anyway? I don't like the idea b/c the gameplay isn't that good anyway.

Come on dude its a close battle but Dwight howard is WAY better than a 89 and on Live 08 he was a 89. 2k's ratings are easily better.

I have no clue. But who knows, he might be indeed be better than Diaw. Diaw ain't the GOAT. :shrug:

Rubio is not overated.

And in this qualifications they are underating Marc Gasol.

He kicked Papadopoulos where his back loses its name last year in eurochampionship and in the world cup final, he won the Mvp playing the same league that Papadopoulos and Papadopoulos has been considered a Bust by Real Madrid.

Yet Papadopoulos gets an 80 and Marc a 65
??????????

Lol, me and my friends nicknamed the whole Greek team on NBA Live because we can't pronounce their names correctly.

Yes he is. Maybe he'll be a good NBA player someday... but really...what is Rubio going to do against the NBA all-star team we are sending? not much. Rubio is a nice player in euroball but the NBA is a different game... ask the euro born players that are fleeing back to Europe this year.

I know NOTHING about this Rubio guy you people speak of, but I will agree that NBA is so much of a different style of play than European ball. Even Asian basketball, NBA is easily distinguishable.

Theo Papaloukas rated a 69 is an epic fail.
