Wiggins isn't an absence. He wouldn't contribute much of anything if he played. And you have to be invited or actually in the team to be an absence.

Nash..............guys that retired years ago are not absences. Get serious please.

Yes because last year with Splitter and Barbosa Brazil placed 5th in the Olympics their best result in a global tournament in modern history. The same Olympics where the Eurobasket silver medalist France placed 6th, Lithuania placed 8th and Greece couldn't even qualify for losing after to a Nigerian team in the qualifying tournament that ended up placing 10th.
