i know overall international basketball has gotten alot better recently, but croatia, & lithuania were pretty good, especially croatia. they had 5 nba players on the team, most notably Drazen Petrovic(HOF), Toni Kukoc, & Dino Raja. i think they'd stand a good chance against any international teams today. what do you guys think?

also lithuania had Sabonis in his prime (HOF), & marciulionis

croatia would be a treat to spain, france , argentina and current usa team.

If you search on youtube there is a full game with croatia vs the dream team. Croatia was actually a pretty solid team. They just happened to be playing vs the dream team so no real chance there.

Croatia would spank these teams.i'm thinking they'd definitely stand a good chance. the fact that they only got beat by 32 & 33 against the dream team oddly enough shows they could ball. dream team avg win by 44 pts, counting the wins over croatia, so they just all out smashed everyone else, & just put nice normal blowouts on croatia. i mean i could see 2012s team losing to the dream team by 20-30

They wouldn't qualify for the Olympics.

One of the best international teams from the 90s and on, definitely better than most teams talent wise and they wouldn't have bad odds against the very top teams.
They also had Stojko Vrankovic, Arjan Komazec, Arapovic and Perasovic.
Someone mentioned Yugoslavia 1989. That was a cheat team :)
