Best Nation In Basketball
Posted 16 October 2007 - 11:19 PM
and basketball is not a one man sport team yan kaya best cguro right know is argentina although di ako fan ng argentina
in terms of record siyempre mas mataas record nila compared to other countries who just recently been winning kasi nga nauna sila magcompete in international competition compared to other countires.
opinion ko lng yun mga sir

- the controversial 1972 finals against USSR
- losing to USSR again the 1988 semifinals; USA (led by David Robinson and Mitch Richmond) finished 3rd
But the bad news is, 3 of those 5 losses hapenned in the last 2004 games (against Puerto Rico, Lithuania, and Argentina)
Look out for Russia though in the next Olympics. They havent been to finals since 1988 (still USSR), when they won over Yugoslavia. Members of that star-studded USSR team include Aleksandr Volkov, Sarunas Marciulionis, Arvydas Sabonis, and Rimas Kurtanaitis. They defeated a Yugoslavian team (before the spilt up) composed of Toni Kukoc, (the late) Drazen Petrovic, and Vlade Divac.
A USA-Russia finale in the 2008 games would be something to watch out for! Last time these 2 teams met in the finals was ... well, back in 1972
Lithuania has finished either 3rd or 4th since they started participating as a nation in 1992 (that's 4 Olympics to date), so they are certainly a team to reckon with. Well, that is assuming they do well in the pre-Olympic qualifying tournament (which I think they will)
And of course, defending champion Argentina will have it's "A team" available. Spain is still a dangerous team, and you can never discount China (homecourt advantage).
For sure, the upcoming Olympic basketball tournament will be one of the most exciting in years - no team is really guaranteed to get the gold medal.

In the 2006 FIBA World Championships, the Spainards won the Gold medal by beating Greece 70-47. The US defeated Argentina 96-81 for the Bronze.

talent wise xempre US pren... and besides USA wasn't able to send there top players in 2004... with a more cohesive line up for this years Olympic games i think USA will win the gold again... with The Mamba,, King James,, J-Kidd,, D12 and Melo in the starting line up followed by Mr. Big Shot,, TChand,, The Palace Prince,, Silky,, HellBoy,, D-Will and Mike Miller c'mon...
i do think they should replace Mike Miller with D-Wade,, CP3 for D-Will (sorry deron fans),, CB4 for tayshaun....
USA all the way!!! ( I hope)

The former USSR (with a pre-NBA Sabonis, Volkov, Marchiulionis, etc)
the former Yugos (if the Serbs, Croats & Slovenians in the NBA played as one team..how good wll they be? )

too bad yugoslavia doesn't exist anymore
but they are still the greatest team in europe.

tapos they can get (in limited minutes) the likes of MJ, Bird or Magic...
pag full force ang US, i don't think may mananalo sa kanila...
that's just me...
sa ASIA, China talaga pinaka malakas...may Yao and Yi sila eh..

Serbia & Montenegro (Yugoslavia)
China (?) ---> they would surprise in the Beijing Olympics I'm sure. They will cheat the whole world and not only in basketball!

But since not all the right players are willing to participate, the best team would be either Spain or Argentina.
