Just because Nash was born in South Africa doesn't make him an African. My girlfriend was born in South Korea while her dad was stationed there but no one said she's Asian or Korean

Africans are people from africa. There are plenty of people born in south africa that are white and identify as africans. If I was born in Korea, I could damn well call myself korean if I wanted to. Obviously I wouldn't be racially korean, but are Olympic teams determined by race?

Damn, Africa is running shit.

Try scoring against this frontcourt, and looks to have an offense that will be fluid and smooth run by nash, finished by the dream, with deng picking off easy jumpers all day....

Championships

Olympic teams are determined by citizenship. I don't think Nash has South African citizenship.

FYI, unlike America, South Korea does NOT have jus soli "birthright by citizenship" so unless you was born in South Korea to parents who were stateless, you cannot legally, technically, or racially call yourself Korean.

valid point. Nash identifies as a canadian, but being that he was born in africa, and that team needed a PG I stuck him in there.

LOL @ team europe.

Those guys have some inferiority complex. They can't compete with the US as individual countries so they got to merge to form the "country" of Europe. For an example, see their currency called the "Euro"

They be trying to hold on to their prosperous empires from centuries ago but to no avail...get over it euro countries. You're like the beautiful woman who got old and wrinkly but wants to turn back time by getting botox. You're still old and you can't hide it.

All time Australian Team:

PG - Ricky Grace
SG - Andrew Gaze
SF - Leroy Loggins
PF - Andrew Bogut
C - Luc Longley

6th man - Shane Heal

Would love to see this team in action, if anyone knows Grace, Gaze or Loggins then they would know why this team would be amazing to watch...

Ibaka plays for Spain, Nash played for Canada. Not eligible for Africa.

Besides you should probably include some none NBA players.
