Default All World vs USA

With the World Championships quickly approaching I think it'd be fun to bring up this thread that has been done over and over. Who takes it in 1 fiba rules game for all the marbles. And feel free to argue who should be on the 12 man squads.

Team USA
Dwight(5), Amare(4,5), Duncan(5,4)
Bosh(4,5), Melo(3,4), Boozer(4)
Lebron(3,4), Durant(2,3)
Kobe(2), Wade(2,1)
Deron(1,2), CP3(1)

Team World
Gasol(5,4), Bogut(5) Yao(5)
Dirk(4), Scola(4)
Batum(3,2), Gallanari(3)
Manu(2,3), Rubio(1,2)
Nash(1), Parker(1) Dragic(1,2)

As long as a Kobe-led team is playing in FIBA, I don't think there is a problem taking gold everytime.

We saw a talented USA team led by Lebron, Wade and Melo take bronze.

So, it really depends on if Kobe is playing or not.

Them taking the bronze had more to do with Coach K's coaching than anything else. Wade and Lebron were the keys in 08.

Team USA is the obvious favorite, but the International team has enough shooters to win any single game.

USA was lucky to win the gold if it wasn't for Kobe and his stupidly good defense and threes in the last seconds.

I dont think its talent that is the factor to winning it all putting a stacked team together does not equate a win, spain and other teams have shown good team chemistry over all star team with no chemistry. So I would take a Spanish National squad maybe add some shooters over a all star cast of Euro talent

FIBA rules - World favourite to win by a small %.

NBA rules - USA favourite to win by a big %.

you f@cking Kobe stan... get your facts straight... that Bronze team was led by the likes of AI, Starbury and some other players... Melo, Wade and Bron barely played because Coach Brown didn't like them and they were all just 1 year players

You really think people like The Logo, griffmoney, Desperado, etc. etc. care about that? The only exist to make trollish comments worshipping Kobe.

To answer the question, may be a good game but can't see the world team beating the US.

Give me:

PG: Nash/Parker
SG:Manu/Gordon
SF: Deng/Gallinari
PF: Dirk/Nene/Okur
C: Gasol/Yao/Bogut

And we're going for the gold. However, I guarantee that USA couldn't beat this team.

PG: Nash/Parker
SG: Petrovich/Šarūnas Marčiulionis/Ginobili
SF: Kukoc/Detlef Schrempf
PF: Nowitzki/Dino Radja
C: Sabonis/Divac/Kresmir Cosic

All in their primes...

Oscar Schmidt should be there. 28.8 ppg in 5 Olympics. 42.3 ppg in the 1988 one.
Won the Pan-American against the likes of David Robinson and Danny Manning, scorng 46 pts.
