[quote=Hyman]France is not playing a great basketball at all
.....appart from Parker and a little bit Diaw, they lat skill.
They've got also pretty poor centers and power forwards offensively. Diaw is playing as a small forward
I agree France isn't playing great basketball, yet! The game against Russia was way better.
About the lack of talent, obviously you don't know Nicolas Batum, Nando de Colo, Ali Traoré or Antoine Diot. These guys can score !!!
Diaw small forward, everybody thinks (including Mike d'Antoni and Larry brown, if you know them, think it's his best position.
Poor offensive centers, Turiaf and Traoré have scored against Kambala, Biedrins, and the russians and germans giants, so they can do against almost everybody.
And France defence is the best in Europe, they can slow down all europeans teams and stay in the game.
I think France will be at the same level than all opponent the team will face. They can loose or win against everybody. (Exemple they lost in Belgium but win against Russia or Italia)
