2003 vs 2008: Who wins?

Durant calls Bosh a fake tough guy.  Rose doesn't woo LeBron or Wade

Had me thinking:  The young stars of today probably can't stand that 2003 class.  It seems there's a clear, distinct gap between both generations.  From the 2008 USA national team to the 2010 USA national team.  The way the older guys handle free agency to the way the younger guys do.  Just feels like LeBron, Wade, Melo and company wanna be superduperstars and have the league beg for their talents whilst humblebots like Rose, Durant and Westbrook are happy just to be here.  In Rose's words: "I just wanna win"

I know Durant isn't part of that 2008 class.  I just threw him into the conversation to make a point on how the up and coming stars might feel about the more established ones.  With that being said, would you rather take the best of 2003 or the best of 2008?  Might make for a better All Star Game.  With the way the NHL handles their All Star games, might already be in the works.
