The USA Team almost got beat by a Spain team that has players who would be scrubs if they played in the NBA.

Imagine playing against an international team of all-stars.

Most of those teams wouldnt be doable under the salary cap.

the closest you could do is use toronto as start base and trade for example bosh for Pau and The rookie and some pieces for rudy so you have a

Calderon, Rudy F, Turkoglu Bargs, Pau starting line up

WOW, with all the Canadians on these boards I can't believe nobody has blasted you for saying being Canadian doesn't qualify. Although if Canada doesn't count, how the hell can the US Virgin Islands count?

International should be defined as any player other than North American... So, I wouldnt consider Nash as an international player.

in fact the spanish roster of players with nba experience or already ith their rights drafted for an nba team would look like

Calderon/Ricky/Sergio Rodriguez/Raul Lopez

Navarro/Rudy Fernandez/Sergio Llul

Victor Claver/Garbajosa

Pau Gasol/Albert Miralles

Marc Gasol/Fran Vazquez.

and its good enough for an east playoff qualification

maybe they should do like the NHL did and have North America vs Internationals... that would be pretty sweet.

Easily, and possibly title contender in my opinion.

Also worth noting is that Steve Nash was born in South Africa. I guess when we say 'international' we mean those who are declared for non-North American National basketball teams.
