Well, I don't think there would be much of a fight, I think the US team would crash the other team worse then how the Lakers destroried the Nets.

Big deal-The Lakers beat the Kings in the playoffs-but does that mean Mark Madsen is better than Webber...I think not.

UR an **no name calling please**, that has to be the **edited** I have ever heard. Is Mark Madsen even an all star?

Both AI n VC are all stars and comparable. Iverson had better games overral than Vince. Liek I said, put ur hatred behind u, and look at a good player. If AI didnt have cornrows, tattoos, and never ran into the law I bet u wud think of him differently...

I don't like AI, but it's not cause of what you said, I don't like him cause he is a ball hog, he misses alot more shots then anyone in the league, but 76ers for a long time have played solid defense right? And I think their solid defense balances his bad shot percentage, which then makes his point average and total a big deal, and gives him alot of credits for their wins.

Plus he always kills the Nets...

Center for the foreign team should be Sabonis...and you have to put in the line-up Dejan Bodiroga who is the best european player plying on our continent...He is not better than Dirk but certainly as good as Peja and superior to Hedo

With 12 men rosters plus 3 on the IR-

USA

C-Shaq/Alonzo/Olowakandi
PF-Duncan/Webber/Brand
SF-KG/Pierce/Marion
SG-Kobe/T-Mac/Vince
PG-Kidd/Payton/Baron Davis

IR:
Olowakandi
Marion
Davis

Foreign Team

C-Divac/Mutumbo/Ming
PF-Gasol/Sabonis/Magloire
SF-Dirk/Kirilenko/Nickoloz Tskitishvilli
SG-Peja/Turkoglu/Emanuel Ginobili
PG-Nash/Parker/Marko Jaric

IR:
Jaric
Tskitishvilli
Magloire

What do you think? It looks to me like the Non-US players have a ways to go.
I made some changes to the lineups; moved Dirk to SF and started Gasol, as well as adding Sabonis at PF and dropping Welsch. But still when you break it down...

C-Shaq/Alonzo/Olowakandi VS. Divac/Mutumbo/Ming
ADVANTAGE: USA-not really close when you throw Shaq in there..

PF--Duncan/Webber/Brand VS. Gasol/Sabonis/Magloire
ADVANTAGE: USA-same as above-not close...unless you put Duncan on the Foreign team, but it just seems like he should be on the American team.

SF-KG/Pierce/Marion VS. SF-Dirk/Kirilenko/Nickoloz Tskitishvilli
ADVANTAGE: USA-KG versus Dirk would be interesting, but USA dominates the other matchups.

SG-Kobe/T-Mac/Vince VS. Peja/Turkoglu/Emanuel Ginobili
ADVANTAGE: USA-Look out ESPN!- There would be some major posterizing going on here..in favor of the US

PG-Kidd/Payton/Baron Davis VS. PG-Nash/Parker/Marko Jaric
ADVANTAGE: USA-another lopsided matchup.


My Prediction: USA would cruise (sweep) in a 7 game series or in 5,3,1 games.

That would be one hell of a series. I honestly don't think the US would sweep a series. The US team is far superior in individual talent, but I would bet the foreign team would play much better together and much better as a team.

I think if you play a 7 game series, the foreign team might be able to win a game or two.
