    Default What would be the non-american world select olympic team?

    Now that the participants of the Olympic Games are set, whom would you select for an all world team?

    Pick 12 players.

    Navarro instead Shved and it looks about right

    Something like:
    Marcelinho Huertas/Pablo Prigioni
    Juan Carlos Navarro/Emmanuel Ginobili/Vitali Fridzon
    Luol Deng/Andrei Kirilenko
    Pau Gasol/Linas Kleiza/Viktor Khryapa
    Luis Scola/Marc Gasol

    It's sad that some our South European friends didn't make it out of qualifiers 'cause Vassilis and Bo would be a good addition to the backcourt.

    Though I think that my variant is a world team with the respect to players individual strength but if I was in need to bring the team with the real chances to beat US then I would select more non-NBA players (maybe only Scola and Gasol Sr. would still make the cut and I'm not sure about the latter) to level up the defense and decrease ballhogginess, megalomania and 'I'll do it all by myself' attitude.
