Kuroko no Basuke (manga) never references any actual NBA pro by explicitly stating a name, but they have shown panels of professional basket ball players insinuating that they are from the NBA. The characters depicted don't actually resemble any specific pro, but rather a generic player - tall, built, and African-American.
It does seem like the Generation of Miracles could beat real life NBA teams, but the manga does indirectly explain how the Generation of Miracles will not prevail.
Take Kise's copying ability for example. He can only copy people's techniques that he is capable of executing, but because NBA players are so much bigger, faster, and better, his copying won't work.
Or in Midorima's case, he might have the insane accuracy as usual, but an NBA player can easily block his shot.
In the end, however, I don't think Kuroko no Basket will ever mention and compare with top NBA pros. There are certain things that are completely impossible, like Kuroko's phantom shot. It doesn't even theoretically work in real life because NBA plays man to man defense, where each member playing has to always follow their assigned opponent. You can't just misdirect someone following you and not see you shooting.
And don't even get me started on eagle vision...
UPDATE: In one of the latest chapters (242) that I haven't read yet, Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics is shown as the first NBA player in Kuroko. This is somewhat inaccurate though, as Ray Allen has been part of the Miami Heat for 2 years now.
