I really wish Kobe was out there playing with the guys right now, the US team certainly wouldn't be getting eaten up by opposing guards as much as they are now with Kobe's defense and leadership on the floor. I don't know if he'd be a captain, and hopefully he woulnd't care about starting (although he likely would start most games), I just know he'd be killing it out there so now I can't wait for the Olympics!

Yes he would be the captian because Coach K really likes veteran great players and since he didnt get to have Kobe at Duke, It will be making up for it and Because of the amount of stars Kobe would have probably been averaging 15 points and 8 assists.

He does very well with setting up guys.

I think Kobe would have made a huge difference as he has that competitive fire and spirit above Lebron, Carmello and Wade that sets him apart from them. He would be captian, and I think the team would be much more stronger with him.

If you were Coach K, who would you put on the floor with Kobe?

Would you put him with the defensive team and let him run the offense for that squad, or put him with the young gunners and have him work off them?

i.e....

Defense:

C.Paul
Kobe
S.Battier
Brand
D.Howard

The Shooters:

Hinrich
Kobe
Joe Johnson
Melo
Bosh

All-athletic:

Wade
Kobe
LeBron
Melo
Howard

Put together your favorite 4 with Kobe and explain what that team would bring to the table.

Good thread topic. He would have been a captain definetly. Did you guys see the Italy game? They were shooting sooooo many 3's from like anywhere. One of the guys idolizes Kobe and wished he could have been on the team.

But they also hit some contested 3's i think the guy's name was benini...not totally sure.

He has a lot of talent and if he can play against talents guys like bron, anthony, and wade i think he can be a great NBA player. and hes only 20 years old. hes amazing

I would put Chris paul in place of Kirk....although theyre both almost the exact same.

other than that I agree for the most part but Bron should probably be the PF too. hes pretty active.

Kirk is a better all-around player, he can also fill the sg spot and he is a way better defender than Paul. He is awesome in half court offense.

Paul on the other hand has great court vision and he thrieves in uptempo game. He isn't that good defender yet, but he can dish the ball like nobody else on the USA team.

Bottom line: They are not the same.

Yeah I was just watching the Senegal a little while a go and they look like they played better defense than last game. Senegal only had a couple 3's.

What's up with Brad Miller though? Guy has stunk up the floor everytime Coach K puts him out there - how many times did he get schooled in the post by little skinny dudes from Senegal today? And outside of his baseline jumper, he was horrible on offense as well - I hope Amare can get healthy and take his place on the roster for the Olympics.
