FIBA USA v. The World

Read a thread on Real GM about a theoretical game pinning the US players versus the international player in either NBA or FIBA rules.

What would your lineups be and who would win?

Nash/Parker/Rubio
Ginobili/Batum/Kyrie
Deng/Galinari/Bargnani (lol)
Dirk/Ibaka/Horford
Pau/Marc/Bogut

What do you guys think?

See, that should be the belief, and for good reason.

But for that to happen, these guys would have to play some quality team basketball.

i don't think there's a single guy besides dirk (and maybe not even him) on the international squad that even makes the usa squad.

They used to say exactly the same for the Miami line up but in the end it took them 3 years and a lot of strugle to win something...
Plus if they use FIBA referees is going to be one travel after another for LBJ and friends.

I think Dirk starts on that team no question.

Take the Olympics this year...

You take the team of Calderon, Gasol, Gasol, Ibaka, Navarro etc...

Add Dirk, Ginobili and Parker to that team and they already have a chance to beat team USA.

Team basketball is the game, and the international guys have a lot more experience playing that brand of ball than the All-ISO All stars.

Didn't Spain come with a hair's breath of beating Team USA at the last Olympics?

Yup. With Jose out and Rubio (who was 17 years old at the time) playing with an injured wrist.
