See you have been exposed. How were you predicting Greece would do this summer. Probably challenge for gold and they sucked. Again five of those players on your Euroleague all-star team couldn't even reach top 10 in a global competition and 2010 was a weak field. There's a reason those players aren't in the NBA...they suck and 2010 showed it.

You are a true moron.

Team USA 2012 beat Spain by 7 points in the game that mattered the most

You are clearly a psychotic.

CERN. Al Gore just had the philosophical idea of a world wide web as a link of thoughts(on a side note Pete Townshend of The Who had the same idea for an Album in '70, did he invent the internet?). CERN actually engineered and developed the technical aspect of the internet, they just took the name Al Gore came up with.

Let it be, he seems to ignore that without people like Antonio Meucci, Nikola Tesla, Nikolaus Otto, etc. (non of them americains) nothing of what he said would have happened.

I pointed out it seems like there has already been a team with (5) almost half of those players (Spanoulis, Diamantidis, Printezis, Schortsanitis and Bourousis) Team Greece in 2010 and they finished 11th place with a 3-3 record. I mean if five players from this team could even finish top 10 and do worse than Australia and Slovenia will adding 7 more of those scrubs make that much of a difference.

The you made the absurd claim that such a team could challenge the defending champions Miami Heat. You can make such absurd statement because you know such game would never happen. 3 players from the NBA runners up (Thunder) were on the same USA Team that won gold this year. And wait, 4 players, a 3rd of the Euroleague champions, were on Team Greece this year and how did they do? Yeah they couldn't even make the Olympics because they were eliminated by Nigeria. hahahah Nigeria. The same team that lost to the USA by 83 points eliminated the team with 4 players from the Euroleague Champions and 3 players from your list of an Euroleague all-star team.

Nigeria!! Beating Euroleague's best since 2012!!!!!

Two out of the three did most of their work in the United States.... as I explained, the US gives the best environment to nurture these creative talents. This is what I mean by "brain drain".
