All-NBA National Teams 

Post#1 » by THE J0KER » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:46 am

AUSTRALIA
Patty Mills
Dante Exum
Joe Ingles
Ben Simmons (c)
Aron Baynes

BRAZIL
Raul Neto
Bruno Caboclo
Nene (c)
Lucas Nogueira
Cristiano Felício

CANADA
Jamal Murray (c)
Dillon Brooks
Andrew Wiggins
Trey Lyles
Kelly Olynyk

CROATIA
Bojan Bogdanovic
Mario Hezonja
Dario Saric (c)
Dragan Bender
Ivica Zubac

FRANCE
Tony Parker
Evan Fournier
Nicolas Batum
Alexis Ajinca
Rudy Gobert (c)

GERMANY
Dennis Schroder
Maxi Kleber
Paul Zipser
Daniel Theis
Dirk Nowitzki (c)

SERBIA
Milos Teodosic
Bogdan Bogdanovic
Nemanja Bjelica
Nikola Jokic (c)
Boban Marjanovic

SPAIN
Ricky Rubio
Jose Calderon
Nikola Mirotic
Marc Gasol (c)
Pau Gasol

TURKEY
Furkan Korkmaz
Cedi Osman
Ersan İlyasova
Omer Asik
Enes Kanter (c)


NOTES
AUSTRALIA: If there are too many players who prefer to play PG, Exum or Mills can be replaced with Thon Maker
BRAZIL: Unfortunately, this lineup with 3 centers can't play together on the floor
CANADA: I guess someone would put Cory Joseph over Brooks, or Tristian Thompson over Olynyk
CROATIA: Maybe Ante Zizic is an already better solution than Bender or Zubac. Problem with such lineup is lack of point guard
SERBIA: Serbian federation once ignored Frank Kaminsky (have Serbian roots) willingness to compete for Serbia, maybe it changes in near future
SPAIN: For 2nd backcourt player maybe Alex Abrines is already better than veteran Calderon. If we talking about TOP5 players from Spain, in that case, Ibaka should be mentioned for sure
TURKEY: There are very small chances that Kanter will ever again represent Turkey. Similar to Croatian NBA lineup, this team also have no point guard

Some nice players there, of course I like the Serbian team the most :lol: and Jokic's a big part of that; but they have a couple other pretty nice players there.

Zipser seems to be on his way out of the league and i probably wouldn't play Nowitzki is center, my team would be:
Schröder
Bonga
Kleber
Theis
Hartenstein (assuming the Rockets will sign him)/Wagner
Very young team, but also a lot of talent, let's hope that the trend continues.

Kostas Antetokounmpo as #60 pick have small chances for NBA debut next season, but if that happens (or Auguste or Mitrou-Long) I will add Greece on this list.

Re: Canada
No way Tristan Thompson starts over Kelly Olynyk. The debate is likely if Dwight Powell might be better than Trey Lyles. CoJo over Brooks and just how bad Wiggins might be.

I guess I don’t understand if OP is making a team and asking the starting 5 or just judging based on individual talent. Those are different 5s for me.

Another question is how good might Shai Gilgeous Alexander might be.
