As much as I'd like to see the Germans get a wildcard, there's so many good teams that will be contention - Brazil, Russia, Turkey, Canada, and possibly Greece. You've got to assume China will get one so it could be 2 European teams and 1 American or they might do 1 African, 1 European, and 1 American. A full strength German team could do some damage, no doubt.

Yes Germany could do some damage, but that's not good enough reason to get picked atleast for me, because there will be teams that might contend for a medal (Russia, Greece etc.). I don't think Germany will get picked, and I think that's fair.

Yeah, even as a German I have to agree. But would you say that Russia is necessarily so much better than Germany with all NBA guys and Jagla? Not saying that Germany would contend for a medal, but in my opinion, they could be better than people think. I mean Dirk has won medals with less talent than the potential 2014 team.

But I'd agree that the obvious choices are teams like Russia and Greece. As a German, I'd like a different outcome though.

I wouldn't mind Germany get picked, but anyways this whole wild card system is complete bullshit, if you are worth to be in world championships prove it on court.

Agree. Why not a small tournament for the remaining spots? Makes more sense than the current system. I don't see Russia missing such a big tournament. Putin doesn't approve. So I'd say Russia is pretty much a lock.

What's the story with Saric's mouth? Somekind of injury or disease from childhood?

Obviously. It'll come down to money and strength of team although if Greece fails to qualify for the WC after failing to qualify for the Olympics, I'm not sure if they deserve a WC.

Saric is really showing his versatility in this quarter. Blocking shots, blowing by his defender, leading fast breaks, playing good defense, etc. Great stuff.

Croatia just missed a ton of chances to blow the game open.

I would root for Craotia usually, but need Greece to win. Rather get Italy than Spain in quarters.
