It's just a matter of time really. Canada is too much involved in NBA to do not have any talent at all.

I like PR and Argentina both through by 6 or more.

Experience proves to be the difference in this tournament, and I think Mexico and DR have had their fun.

Agreed. PR and Argentina in close wins and then Puerto Rico wins in the final by 15+

What an unbelievable joke that Argentina is playing at the World Cup.

FIBA is nuts. They have to revamp this thing. No way in hell should the Americas be getting all these places.

Well at least Argentina has never lost to Nigeria and Finland, Greece and Spanoulis is such an unbelievable joke.

FYI Argentina has done better than Greece in every single tournament except 2006, including kicking their asses in the 2008 quarter-finals.

Puerto Rico won against DR yesterday. That Arroyo flop in the last minutes was ridiculously hilarious. He must've learned that from Lebron when he was on the Heat.

Damn Mexico is taking advantage of some seriously terrible Puerto Rico defense, open interesting game so far in the first quarter. Ayon is a monster on the inside I remember the one time I saw him against the Kings he shat all over us. Mata is killing it lol, has literally been untouched on all his buckets.

lol if you think PR is trying that hard. I expect them to dominate the third quarter. Even pr playing bad defense they are still losing by 1.

They picked it up a bit in the 2nd quarter but the 1st quarter defense was nothing short of awful imo. But yeah they are still easily in the game and have not played well at all while Mexico has chopped up so yeah PR should if they can get it together soon win easily. I think they have taken Mexico's best shot.

if PR cannot stop Ayon that could be dangerous but they still haven't used Santiago so who knows what might happen. Ayon is their last hope of winning because he's doing everything good for the inside game of Mexico

PR defense is going to start soon though.

Mexico wins. Surely means G. Ayon wins tournament MVP. Brilliant move by the Bucks to just waive him like he is trash.
