Ignored The U.S. to be little more original.. also you didn't specify that we should chose only active players :D

PG- Steve Nash, Canada
SG- Manu Ginobili, Argentina
SF- Dominique Wilkins, France
PF- Dirk Nowitzki, Germany
C- Hakeem Olajuwon, Nigeria

Reserves: Patrick Ewing (Jamaica), Pau Gasol (Spain), Toni Kukoc, Former Yugoslavia (Croatia), Hedo Turkeyglue (Turkey), Tony Parker (France).

How sick would this line-up be?

Yup. Lin is of Taiwanese descent, not Chinese.

Only visit that place during Eurobasket and world championships.

Btw, what do you think of Oguchi Onyewu of Sporting CP? One of my favorite American players. I always use Porto in FIFA 12 as well.

He has been pretty good in Sporting so far, he's respected for being a tough guy on the pitch. Sporting is having a decent season so far, let's see if Onyewu can handle City's forwards in the next round of Europa League.

Porto have a stupid head coach, just that. They are very talented, they just need a good striker a real number 9 like Falcao was. Janko and Kleber are not the solutions.

Re: One player by country
 
OP didn't specify if the players had to be born in another country or simply lived in one long enough to be considered from there. :confusedshrug:


So I'll go with:

C - Patrick Ewing (Jamaica)
PF - Dirk Nowitzki (Germany)
SF - LeBron James (USA)
SG - Kobe Bryant (Italy)
PG - Steve Nash (Canada)
