It may not be only for you, a lot of people here underrate FIBA basketball and consider the NBA champion to be the best team in the world.

i thought it was stupid even when USA was dominating the world teams.
It can't be a world championship if only one country is competing. OK two but Canada has one team, its ridiculous. At best its the North American Championship.

NBa Champions = World Champions

FiBa Champions= World Champions

Olympics Champions = World Champions

Deal with it. The best players in the world play in the NBA.

i cant wait for the flood of posts that say "NBA has the best players, they all want to come here because we're the best with the best league"

NBA champs are just the best team in that league not the world.

The title should be changed for NBA teams. Way too arrogant and not justified anymore.

Actually, they do have NBA players. Vassilis Spanolis, the PG who lit up USA for 22pts, will be playing for the Houston Rockets this upcoming season. And I believe some team has the rights to "Baby Shaq".

There is no doubt that the NBA has the best players in the world. The best international players are playing in the NBA. Now just because we have the best players/talent, it doesn't exactly mean we'll have the best TEAM.

The NBA champs are the NBA Basketball World Champions.
They might not be the FIBA World Champions.

If an All-star team of the Euro game got together and played the NBA champions using NBA rules they would be slaughtered. (The opposite scenario would be closer but end up in a Euro win.)

The NBA and FIBA play two entirely different games of basketball.
