Team USA vs Team World
Posted by tduecen on 2/13 at 2:00 pm
Who would win?

Team USA would feature I know Lebron, Kobe, Durant, Chandler (or Howard) and Paul

Team World I would guess would have Nash, Gasol brothers, Dirk, and who ever else....


Out of 10 games who would win more?
Also who would be your starting line up/bench for each

USA would win 9/10 at least maybe 10/10

5 years ago it was easily team World but besides Tony Parker the great players are past their prime(Duncan Ginobili Nash Dirk Pau Peja Hedu)

I think a Team World with

PG - Parker
PF - Nowitzki
SF - Marc Gasol
SG - Manu
C - Pau

might make it a close series, but ultimately it'd still be Team USA winning 6 or more.

I was unsure until you laid out this roster. Now I definitely would assume Team US would sweep the series.

I thought about this during the Olympics thinking it would be a close game.

I just checked the top 40 scoring leaders in the NBA and only 3 are international (Tony Parker, Danilo Gallinari, and Luol Deng).

Now I know the international game is much different than the NBA but I don't think "Team World" would have enough fire power to beat "Team USA" any more than once or twice out of 10.

Now 5 years ago with guys like Manu, Nash, Dirk, Pau playing in their primes is a little different.

1- Parker /Rubio / Vasquez
2- Ginobli / Thabo Sefolosha / Leandro Barbosa
3- Deng / Andrei Kirilenko / Hedo Turkoglu
4- Dirk /Bargnani / Pau
5- Marc G / Pekovik / Bogut


They would lose but it would be a fun game to watch.

Give them Kyrie (born in Australia) and it would be a pretty interesting all-star game.

World Team could easily take it to 6 or 7 games

13 man roster

G - Rubio, Parker, Ginobli, Nash, Fernandez
F - Gasol, Deng, Ibaka, Nowitski, Horford, Scola
C - Hibbert, Gasol

The roster could look something like this.

World team is lacking at the small forward, but they have excellent big men and PGs

USA would crush. Any basketball team made up of Lebron, Wade, Kobe, Durant, Paul, etc. would beat any other team in the world.

Good call on Ibaka and Horford. I still feel like no one from World Team could start on the USA Team therefore USA would roll

Virgin Islands are a U.S. Territory, so I'd think Team USA.

NBA rules = Team USA 10 wins out of 10 games and most of them blow outs

International Rules = Team USA probably wins 8 or 9 unless team world had quite a bit of time to gel. If you gave team World a few years they probably win at least half the games against Team USA with International rules.
