Default Re: One player by country

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

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?

How sick would this line-up be?

in that case (in their prime):

PG - Steve Nash, Canada
SG - Drazen Petrovic, fr. Yugoslavia (Croatia)
SF - Dominique Wilkins, France
PF - Hakeem Olajuwon, Nigeria
C - Arvydas Sabonis, Lithuania

bench:
C/F - Dikembe Mutombo, Congo
F - Dirk Nowitzki, Germany
G - Tony Parker, France
F/G - Peja Stojakovic, fr. Yugoslavia (Serbia)
C/F - Patrick Ewing, Jamaica
C - Yao Ming, China
G - Manu Ginobili, Argentina

team tryouts:
Dino Radja
Vlade Divac
Detlef Schrempf
Pau Gasol
Toni Kukoc
Rik Smits
Rony Seikaly



And im not sure to select or not Pete Maravich to.... he is born in USA, but is actually fr. Yugoslavian (Serbian)

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.

Default 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.


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)
