Default the simple solution is to just send an NBA team

any playoff team would probably get the gold.

chemistry, tons of plays, everyone knows their role, etc.

it would never happen tho. foreign players have their countries' allegience, other teams would complain about marketing, etc.

and even tho it was 1997 and the game has changed, it sure was fun watching the Pippen-less Bulls destroying everyone in the McDonalds World Championships in France. old man MJ just toyed with everyone.

also the are pretty much some foreigners on every nba team.
you couldnt send the spurs. ginobili,parker,radmanocih etc
not the mavs cause dirk well dirk is the mavs.
etcetc
im not even sure a nba team would win this tournament.

for anyone who wants too know if you watch the games played in this competition also if you watch the champions fiba league you will see the lewel of basketball played is wery high!
I started watchin some FIBA games last season and i actually enjoed watchin some of those games more than the NBA.
The way the games are played is diffirent, all teams have theyre top scorers but the games are more team orientaded, it actually kinda reminded me of watchin the 87-90 nba basketball only with a lot more three point shoting.
The ball movement,picks,off the ball movement reminded me a lot of those time.
Today the NBA is a lot more individually orianteded, a lot more isolations, one on one, slow post up...

hawkfan is starting to rub some people the wrong way

Just add some shooters who aren't stars - guys like Brent Barry, Raef LaFrentz, Derek Fisher, Robert Horry - guys who can hit outside shots.

But Team USA is so obsessed with putting stars on the team.

Every other international team has an actual team with role players - real ones - not stars trying to play like role players.

Hawkfan i dont agree with that asessment of yours, most of the national teams in the Worlds have theyre best players, like Greece the players on that team most of them are the stars or among the stars of theyre respective teams, some play in spain some in italy both wery strong pro basketball leagues some in Germany and Russia with Moskow, also the league in Greece is extremely strong and getting stronger every year, the amount of money in those leagues is wery wery respectable.

But the thing is when they show up for international duties they are thankfull for beeing picked too play And they know what theyre role is on the national team.
