After seeing the final game and how did spain play agianst a full all star team usa roster.

How far do you think that roster would do in the nba?

Spain would probably make the finals and win a ring. Spain's best vs a regular NBA team? I dunno man...gotta go with Spain' best!

The game is different in the U.S., the refs officiate the game differently, it's tough to say. Spain would definitely be a playoff team. Great team, but like I said the rules are different and the game is diff. overseas. The NBA is a great league, it's hard to win a title.

Their is a different win a 1 game elimination against a series, anything can happen in 1 game, but in a series, teams can adjust and exploit weaknesses

Good points, the NBA game is much different then the International game.

I would hate that cause Pau would be off the Lakers, but I think they would make the playoffs.

Playoffs and possible championship contender. They played well against the best players in the NBA, imagine facing just a normal team.

Lottery. The NBA rules are much different. And if Spain was so good and a playoff team in the NBA then most or all of their players would be in the NBA. Against teams that have been together for awhile and practice more they wouldn't have much of a chance.

Marc Gasol, is on Nba.

Pau Gasol , is on Nba.

Felipe Reyes, is being scouted by Nba teams.

Garbajosa, Left Nba for MONEY.

Navarro , ^

Calderon, is on Nba.

Rudy Fernandez, is on Nba.

Ricky Rubio, you can bet whatever you want will soon be on Nba.

Raul Lopez, Was on Nba.


So 9 out of 12 players are Nba Material with roles from All-star to 7th man.

And the other three, Jimenez, Mumbru and Berni Rodriguez, well i dont think they dont have enough quality to be a 10th or 11th player in a Rotation,

Most of their players are/were/or will be in the NBA...

However, with the difference in style, I think they are too soft to really compete in the NBA, sure they play excellent in FIBA games, but in an NBA style game, I think they would face some real trouble night in and night out. I think they'd be borderline playoff team in the east, but not in the playoffs in the west.

They showed that they can compete with the best players in the world, but since there are different rules between the two leagues i dont see them getting past the second round.

If Spain were playing the Boston Celtics I would take the Celtics every time.

Some of you are drinking the kool aid.. The NBA is a different game and with most of these spain players not on or barely on nba rosters they would be a very average to below average basektball team. The NBA 3 point line is a lot further away.
