In terms of an international competition where you represent your country then it's probably the pinacle, outside of soccer where the olympics is widely disregarded.
The NBA isn't even that popular of a league, considering the Euro Leagues are combined a big deal as well. None of us have stats to prove it, but I would say Olympic Gold>>>>NBA Championship
Also, their ref/lineman wish, that's to have more of their NHL refs in the games?
