You need better playmaking and defense at the point. I would easily replace Irving with Paul or Wall.

I would easily replace Irving with Paul or Wall.Btw, I actually came here today to talk about "Yugoslavian" basketball, with Serbia and Slovenia being in the Euro finals. What would be the current All Star "Yugoslavian" team?Looks like it would be pretty strong. It would be great to hear your views.
The strongest basketball team in the world rarely gets its top 10 players (1992, 2008) in its 12 representatives.Here is my take on what, in theory, could be the strongest basketball team currently assembled.It is a 3 guards - 6 wings - 3 bigs format.Guards:Steph CurryKyrie IrvingJames HardenForwards:Kevin DurantKawhi LeonardLebron JamesPaul GeorgeKlay ThompsonGordon HaywardBigs:Anthony DavisDeAndre JordanDeMarcus Cousins The team looks stacked at guards and forwards, while bigs look a bit disappointing (sans AD). It seems like there are a lot of foreign centers that would have made it or at least would contend for the spot: Gobert, KAT, Horford, Marc Gasol, Jokić, Kristaps, Embiid (in one of the universes). Dray was underwhelming at Rio Olympics, either too small of too physical (fouls), and we know that he isn't much of a spacer. If NBA rules were in place he would be my 2nd big.Here is my "almost made the cut" list:Damien Lillard - others are better, no one to squeeze outChris Paul - others are better, no one left to squeeze out John Wall - lacks a 3 pt shotRussell Westbrook - lacks a better 3 pt shotJimmy Butler - lacks a better 3 pt shotDraymond Green - poor prior FIBA playWhat you think, where does this team stack up against the best USA teams?
QuoteYou need better playmaking and defense at the point. I would easily replace Irving with Paul or Wall.That team would cream international competition, it does not need anything. I agree one could have a more ideal lineup but that team would smoke any international team in the world.
