    Yugoslavia

    If Yugoslavia was still united today, how good would their Olympic team be?

    PG: Luka Doncic
    SG: Goran Dragic
    SF: Bogdan Bogdanovic
    PF: Nikola Jokic - Dario Saric
    C: Jusuf Nurkic - Ivica Zubac

    Would they be unanimously 2nd best? Could they upset Team USA with their team-ball mentality? Or is it a bunch of White boys who don't play defense (ignorant mf's...)?

    PG: Chris Paul | Patty Mills | Jose Calderon
    SG: Khris Middleton | J.J. Redick | Iman Shumpert
    SF: DeMarre Carroll | P.J. Tucker | Anthony Morrow
    PF: Tim Duncan | Carlos Boozer | Kyle O'Quinn
    C : Al Horford | Rudy Gobert

    I think they would unanimously be the 2nd best team. Thanks Bill for breaking up the republic...


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    Dragic-Doncic-Bojan-Saric-Jokic

    Teodosic-Bogdan-Kalinic-Bjelly-Nurkic

    A. Randolph (Naturalized Slovenian) and Micic

    They`d be 2nd best team in the world for sure.

    On a hot shooting night they could upset the usa.

    Might have to keep Zubac for defense over Randolph.

    You think their BBall team would have been good... take a look at their soccer team. They’d have been one of the most dominate force the world had seen a few years back if they still existed.

    I can’t believe people are leaving Boban off the roster.

    He's too match-up specific. Just look a how he did in the past world cup. Wasn't that great.

    I'd take Milutinov of Olympiacos over him in fiba play because of mobility, he is a nice defensive big in the euroleague. Even Raduljicia in China might have a case as well.

    I guess if you want offensive mismatch for certain matchups having him as your 12th man is fine. I prefer Zubac or Randolph myself, even Milutinov foe more well rounded purposes.

    Did you mean to thank the Communists? They're the ones who split Yugoslavia into six ethnically based republics forcibly held together by a military junta after the Soviets took the area from the Nazis. Or even go back further to the creation of Yugoslavia after World War I.
    My point is there's a long, long history. Let's not blame Bill.

    I think both USA and Canada will have more guys up for it for the Olympics. It's just more prestigious and better for marketing/brand.

    I wasn't really being serious. I'd take a rotation of Jokic, Nurk and Zubac for my bigs. Boban would be at the bottom of the bench.
