If David Stern’s proposed rule of only allowing players 23 and under to represent countries in the Olympic basketball tournament passes, the game will be in for some major changes.

Obviously, a lot can change in four years time, but let’s take a look at who would fill the starting lineup if it had to be chosen today.
