The NBA would see it as a no-win game -- expected to win, embarrassed if they lose.

But if it ever happened I think we'd find there are a lot of pretty good players in the Euroleague.

Obviously the Euros are skilled and could win but the US is superior and shouldn't buy in for multiple reasons.

No one will care more or less about it if the "captains" draft the players in the game, and because the fans are still voting for the players, and there's still a quota requiring that 50% of the players are from the weaker Eastern Conference instead of just picking the best 24 players in the league at the time, there's absolutely no reason to not leave it the way it was as a West vs. East game.

No, the world team get curbed stomped, which is why they've gone to the pick me format, b cause the East doesn't have any stars.
