Red, White, Blue…and Gold?

Should the Piston's starting five be Team USA's starting five?

This guy seems to think so:

It wouldn't be a bad idea to use the starting unit of the Detroit Pistons as the starters for the U.S. men's basketball team at the 2008 Summer Olympics, complemented by Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Shawn Marion and four other NBA players. Lack of familiarity of teammates has been a problem for the U.S. in recent international competition and the Pistons are the epitome of teamwork.
