The USA because we clearly have the most diverse sports environment in the world.

hehe most of those options are pretty good. I probably just hear about some nations more then others so I cant really say how much spectacular shit happens. Canada, the US and Australia all have alot of land and water and serious athletes. I mean, in the Olympics the US usually gets more medals then we do, but relative to the population pool and the funding available we do fuckin wicked.

United States men's national basketball team - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Two years later, a second "Dream Team" competed in the 1994 Basketball World Championships, finishing first. That was the last time the collection of NBA players comprising an Olympic or World Championship team was officially called "Dream Team." However, the general public and the media continue to refer to every NBA-stocked USA Basketball squad as the Dream Team. In 1996 and 2000, the USA once again captured gold medals (No NBA-laden squad competed in the 1998 World Championship as an NBA lockout prevented its players from competing). The USA failed to medal at the 2002 World Championship, finishing sixth, and both the 2004 Summer Olympic team and 2006 USA World Championship Team both collected the bronze medal. The 2004 team lost three games on its way to a bronze medal, a record that represented more losses in a single year than the country's Olympic teams had suffered in all previous Olympiads combined. It was also the first time since NBA professionals became eligible that the U.S. men's basketball team returned home without gold medals.

The US Olympic team is a poor representation of US basketball versus world basketball.

Put the Phoenix Suns in the Olympics and the US will shit all over Europe. Hell put any western conference playoff team and they will do the same. Well, maybe not the lakers, but the other 7 teams will.

The same goes for that stupid world baseball tournament. US players dont care even a little bit. All the pitchers are on ridiculous pitch counts cus they dont want to injur their arms in meaningless games.

And I dont know how anyone, even Canadians can say that Canada is best. Theyre only really good at hockey, and I think an argument could be made that theyre not the best at hockey.
