Exactly. USA 99 - Lithuania 94...........
I fail to see how this thread makes sense.
Yes, the US is better than every other country of the world individually in basketball.
However, they are not "oh so very much better" as is implied here. Hell, they were losing to Spain in the gold medal game deep into the second half of the game.
Also, again, the "better than the rest of the world" thing isn't realistic or true.
USA never plays against a unified European team, or a unified world team. It's only against single individual countries that USA plays.
The people that think USA can really beat a unified European or world team are morons. So they are not actually "better than the rest of the world". That's WRONG.
They are better than any other single individual country.
And no, I don't think the 2012 Team USA Olympic team would be favored to beat a Euroleague all star team.
