If the bottom teams are in the tank/injured modes they're in now, and the game is played by college rules, Florida has a chance. Say what you want about individual skills, I'll take the team concept. Team USA gets their ass handed to them every year by inferior individuals but better teams. Florida could seriously run/possibly beat any of the bottom teams.

There is a very big difference between Paul Pierce and Aaron Afflalo. I have a ton of respect for what the Gators have accomplished and all but they'd get smoked.

The only way it'd happen is if they play the teams in tank mode. Obviously they wouldn't stand a chance with Jefferson and Pierce in there. Same goes for the Bucks, etc.

the thing people forget is that team usa isnt a team. even these crappy teams by nba standards actually are teams and they have been together for at least all of this year which is as long as college teams. So not only do they destroy florida on talent, theyve been together for as long/longer too.

The worst NBA teams have multiple players who were really good in college. Look at Charlotte. Okafor was a monster, May was darn good, Morrison was obviously a pimp, Felton, Wallace, etc.

Gators would just get killed.

They use to have a Football game where the Superbowl champs played a college all star team every year, I can't remember what it was called or why they cancelled it...

They said the bottom 5 teams of the league. Last time I checked, Phoenix, Orlando, and Miami were far from that.

The worst player on the worst team could be a major contributer to the Florida Gators, not to mention an NBA starting five. There's a small probability, but it's miniscule.

The players on the worst teams were probably college superstars and the best players on their squad. This is just ridiculous. The grizzlies, 76ers, celtics, bobcats, blazers, any of them would beat the Gators so bad the game would be called before halftime.

The real issue is the NBA 3 point line... it stretches the game so much more than college and allows individual skill to reign supreme. The college game is way more packed in compared to the NBA. It's soooo much easier to defend in college basketball.

Why would I want to imagine a hypothetical situation that was not even introduced in the article that is the topic of this conversation? Oh, because you had a random irrelevant tangent. I see, well as long as we're doing that, I'm going to imagine Charles Barkley playing basketball against Godzilla once more.
