Are you serious about Nash? Nash hasn't suited up for Canada in 10 years but at least he has played some big tournaments for Canada, the 2003 FIBA Americas, toe 2000 Olympics.

The biggest disappointment on this list is Hibbert. He is the caption of the Jamaican team and because of him Jamaica is even in this tournament, I believe this might be the highest level basketball tournament Jamaica has ever qualified for. And now the Hibbert is a legitimate NBA superstar he backs out. It might have been the case of the best player suiting up for the worst NT ever, even more so than Dirk for Germany because Germany without Dirk is a lot better than Jamaica without Hibbert.

Maybe it is because he wants to play for USA.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ba...195639605.html

But before you start comparing him to that hoe Ibaka who played with a top national team in Spain instead of his native Congo, Hibbert was born and spent all his life in the US unlike Ibaka who basically only was in Spain when his plane had a layover in the airport (okay I'm exaggerating a little but he literally only spent two years of his life in Spain)

What do you mean? They don't pick the wild card until well after the tournament. Finishing 5th does not mean you get a wild card.

Brazil is very lucky Splitter and Barbosa don't play. They make Brazil worse every time.

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.

Yeah that damn Spain stealing Ibaka from Congo. Spain must have learned it from USA that stole Ewing from Jamaica, stole Olajuwon from Nigeria, and stole Seikaly from Greece.

Spain is simply learning from the USA.

Patrick Ewing moved to the US when he was 12 and had lived in the USA for 17 years before playing in Barcelona, Olajuwon played college ball in the US and lived there for 12 years before playing for the USA. Seikey played college ball in the US, never received Greek citizen ship and lived in the US 12 years before playing for Team US.

Ibaka lived in Spain for a full TWO YEARS!

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.

Thanks for making this thread. This should be a great tourney.

My predictions: Argentina, Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Canada.

Canada didn't do great in the run up to the tournament but I think they'll find their form. DR is missing some main guys and they're not a very deep team to begin with. I think Jamaica could be a dark horse; they have a very athletic team with a lot of size.

If you're interested in NBA prospects, look out for Karl Towns Jr. from the Dominican Republic - projected tot be a top 3 pick in 2015.

Grievis Vasquez was going to play but got injured during preparations.
