Could a Dirk Nowitzki Led All International Team Beat Team USA?

Dirk Nowitzki (Germany)
Al Horford (Dominican Republic)
Coming off his 18th season in the NBA, Nowitzki averaged over 18 points a game at 37 years old. Although he struggles on the defensive end, Nowitzki is still virtually un-gaurdedable in the post. I would give him the start, but on limited minutes.
You could make the argument that Horford should start at power forward, but I am going to make him the first guy off the bench. Horford is one of the rare players in the league that contributes at a high level in every category. His versatility in the front court would be huge.
Just missing the cut would be Serge Ibaka, Kristaps Porzingis, and Tristan Thompson.
