Gamers can play any of the eight international teams (including Team US) in the Play Now mode or in the new FIBA World Championship mode. The Championship mode is an eight team single-elimination tournament. More importantly, because the real international players will be added into NBA Live 08, they can also be brought in to your Franchise just as a real NBA team might draft an international player.
sounds pretty cool to me.

Having international teams is sweet, even if there are huge problems with the game.

If Scola isn't in the game as a member of the rocket he will be as a member of the Argentinian team.

They should give a flop a dedicated button. Just one press and your player will suddenly fall to the floor and when done "correctly" your opponent will get the charge hehe

hopefully other fiba teams will be available for download...

Live is really stepping it up, I personally think that this would be a very marketable strategy to see those FIBA Teams competing againts NBA Players in a Video Game.

There is a flop button, but it's just called 'Taking the charge' For Xbox, press B when you're under the hoop and the guy going for the dunk, but it doesn't always work. But hey, even Yao Ming got the flop, so anything's possible.

Not for nothing, but NBA 2k8 has to fix many of their flaws as well. Last time I stopped playing was when I scored 70 with Kirk Hinrich.

-Fix the spin movie (too easy to get in the lane and score.)
-Fix the slam dunk. Players like Marbury are constantly slamming it on Dwight.
-Fix the stealing. Computer player is dumb as shyt on a fast break and too easy to steal.
-Add more collision. E.g. this refers back to my 2nd complaint, but some players might as well be invisible because they rarely alter or block your shots.
-Make it easier to black
