When Joe B. Hall and Sam Bowie join forces again to fight for all things blue and white, they’re going to be faced with a pleasantly difficult decision. They’ve been handed eight NBA players whose resumes range from established star to savvy veteran to future superstar and now must find a way to put together a starting five for their battle with the Dominican Republic. The roster is loaded at point guard and maybe a little thin in the frontcourt, especially considering that should be the strong suit of the Dominicans.

So, you know how this works. Pick your starting five and make the case for why you’re the smartest person in the comments section. I’m a big fan of versatility on the bench and the option of changing the lineup drastically as the game goes on, so I’m going with Rondo-Wall-Meeks-Cousins-Mohammed. Do better than me below. And that’s not an innuendo either.
