Which national team would be best if they played all their best players?

If we just imagine, that in every team every player has agreed to play and hasn't been injured, which is best?
The top of course is the US, but which teams come next?
The French team could be dirty good.
PG Parker
SG Beaubois
SF Batum
PF Diaw
C Turiaf
With such players as De Colo, Pietrus, Albici on the bench

The Spanish team would be even greater
PG Calderon
SG Navarro
SF Fernandez
PF P. Gasol
C M. Gasol
With Rubio, Vazquez, Llul, Garbajosa on the bench

These teams to me are the best, could they top the US team? Any more teams that deserve mentioning?
I think the Brazilian, Argetinian, Lithuanian and Turkish teams are great to, but they can't really compare to these two

Spain would give the USA Team

Spain would give the USA Team fits even if Lebron,Wade,Melo & Kobe was on the team ..
If Rubio applied himself more on offense...

Why would Curry be the

Why would Curry be the designated shooter when Gordon has shot way better than him this tournament, while also providing more strength and defense?

Yeah..Everyone was raving

Yeah..Everyone was raving about Curry's shooting..

But its Gordon who has supplied the much needed instant offense..

Curry looks out of place & over matched at these games

Curry has been

Curry has been disappointing... They should've kept Rondo.

Not only has Curry shot the ball poorly, I haven't see this ability to play both guard spots. He's been awful at the point.

Everyone was considering him a lock, when the truth is... He's weak strength wise and is a poor defender.

And to answer the question in the thread... Other than the US, it's Spain easily.

Great Britian

Deng and Gordon are both avalible to play for them. Not saying they would be that great, but still an improvement on what little they have now.

KSUxUofAxWildcats Yeah,

KSUxUofAxWildcats
Yeah, maybe, I meant really good. Still I can always use the fact that I'm Russian as an excuse lol

The Dominican republic could have quite an interesting roster. Not great, but better than you would've thought
PG Juan Coronado
SG Francisco Garcia
SF Trevor Ariza
PF Charlie V
C Horford

The English team could be OK with an undersized line up
PG Justin Robinson
SG Ben Gordon
SF Kelena Azubuike
PF Luol Deng
C Pops Mensah-Bonsu
With Ryan Richards possibly emerging as a good player

Steve Nash alone would make

Steve Nash alone would make Canada legit threats, but in all adding 4 NBA players to team Canada's roster would make them tough and they would probally improve more then any other team, (considering they didnt win a single game).

But USA, Spain and France would be the top 3 imo.

LOL

Why would I get negatives on the USA would be the best? If someone actually believes that any team out there would be a better team than the USA's best starting 5, then please, lets debate..

This thread isn't talking about who is good enough to knock off the USA, it's asking who is the best. We all know that the USA, with its best players, has the best team..
