So until next year's WC there really isn't much to be said.

Unless of course you want to spout of nonsense like teams from The Americas would do worse than the African teams or come 20th in Europe (despite coming 1,4,5 in the world last year).

NO ONE has done more to harm the perception of European basketball fans than Euroleague.

Let me repeat, last year, less than 12 months ago, not even a full calendar year, one season past.

/discussion.

Everything he said was wrong. Argentina was not 3rd in the Olympics. Brazil was not 4th in the Olympics.

Argentina would NOT be 2nd best team in Europe (anyone saying that in any normal basketball forum would be banned)........

Yeah OK genius, freaking Argentina is better than Greece, Lithuania, France OK man whatever you think in your little warped fantasy land.

Truth is Argentina would not have even qualified for the last Olympics if they had to play in EuroBasket. There is not a chance in hell that old ass has been team could ever survive to a top 6 finish at EuroBasket.

NO CHANCE

Brazil a top 7 Euro team.....

yeah sure, the same Brazil that loses 4-5 rotation players and struggles like hell to win a game at a JOKE Americas tournament would be a top 7 team in Europe.....

The Olympics has never been a best on best tournament you idiot.

China, Nigeria, Tunisia, Great Britain, Australia making up almost HALF the teams.............

If you are so crazy and stupid that you think THAT is a "best on best" tournament, then you are simply certifiable.

That Olympics tournament is about 2 levels lower than the average EuroBasket tournament.

I watched the AfroBasket and am watching this Americas...clearly you watched neither at all. Senegal would win this Americas Tournament.

The Olympics isn't best on best?



So it wasn't a USA 'dream team' versus Spain's best in the finals.

It wasn't the top qualifying teams from each region?

Did I miss something?

Olympics is lower than Eurobasket?

Really the USA would roll Eurobasket?

The f*ck out, you are an embarrassment.

No idiot. The Olympics is NOT a best against best tournament. Another fool like gabepizza that does not even know what the Olympics is..............


Use your little pea brain and try to grasp it. If the Olympics was a best on best world tournament, there would be no reason for a World Championship.

Yet almost every major sport has a world championship, and it has nothing to do with the Olympics.............

It's pathetic that at a sports message forum people don't even know that the Olympics is a 50% sports event and a 50% international and political relations event.

You clowns are trying to pass off the Olympics as a sportive competition based world championship, which even the Olympics itself has NEVER claimed to be.

My god...........do you actually think those are the 12 best teams in the world? Are you seriously REALLY that dumb?

Its the best teams from each region.

And the rosters HAVE BETTER PLAYERS than the ones in Eurof@ggot 2013 and the various FIBA tournaments.

Look at Olympic rosters of the European teams, which team would win? The 2012 Olympic team or this years Eurof@ggot team?

AND WHY...

does the Olympic gold medalist get a free pass to the WC to the gold medalist?

Hmm... great questions.

There's a big difference about missing NBA players

Than missing minor leaguers like Euroleague players

Did I miss the part when Argentina beat the living crap of Lithuania in last Olympic.

Technically you're actually right for once. However, 3 of the top 5 teams in the Olympics last year were from the Americas region. The USA finished 1st, Argentina finished 4th, and Brazil finished 5th.

A healthy, full Argentina roster finished ahead of those teams at the Olympics last year.

I thought you said Brazil was better off without those players?

He just hates the Olympics because it exposes how weak European teams are when they have to face global competition. That scrub Spanoulis and his weak ass Greek team could not even advance past the qualifying tournament which is a lot weaker than the actually Olympics. The team that eliminated Greece, Nigeria, went 1-4 in the Olympics beating only Tunisia. The top teams from the Americas show their dominance when all 3 Americas team took 3 of the top 5 spots, ahead Lithuania and France, Eurobasket's silver medalist.

I remember the 2008 Olympics where the Eurobasket champions, Russia, could not even advance out of pool play.


It's funny how global competitions like the Olympics and WC expose how weak European teams (except Spain) really are. Eurobasket is a real low level tournament!
