1. Are you talking about one country or a combination of countries? If the same country, depends on the country, of course.

2. Do you mean their olympic roster, or one of their league rosters?

The Greeks would make the playoffs. Best option for the Clippers organization at this point. They already have Sofa Schortsianitis

if say the Bobcats decided to sign every member of Tel Aviv or any other Euro League squad?

they'd be crushed by the majority of the teams in the NBA. thats just how it is. they wouldn't go 0-82 but they probably wouldn't come close to making the playoffs.

i watched the preseason 2006 Sixers (a lottery team) flat out destroy the defending Euro League champs (CSKA i think?). so just imagine what a playoff team would do in midseason form.

i love the idea tho. they'd probably be one of the top road attendance teams in the league for a little while just for the publicity of it all. and it would be an improvement over the very worst teams.

National squads would do better but still wouldn't be anything close to a top 10 team in the NBA.
