For the London Olympics, I want to see Serbia qualify.

I'd say 1, maybe 2 and it'll be NTs from Europe

Britain of course is in

Australia should be in barring shocking upset.

China isn't the lock they usually are, then again if they actually have Yao back like they're saying they're still the favorite.

I expect at least one of Serbia, France and Croatia to be there. Wouldn't be shocked if two are there.

So yeah 1-2 teams. :)

A friend living in London told me that Civil Defense Forces and Riot Dispersal Squads are constantly patrolling.

Australia beat China 71-43 without Andrew Bogut, David Andersen, Nathan Jawai, Julian Khazzouh, Patty Mills, Brad Newley, Joe Ingles, Aleks Maric and Matthew Nielsen. What's going on with China this year?!

I'll quote sinobball.


Wang Shipeng out of the Asian Champs because an unidentified Aussie player stepped on him and broke his arm today. BTW, China was leading 14-11 at that point but got destroyed 43-71 in the game, which is about how good they are without Wang Shipeng, Zhu Fangyu (back injury), Liu Wei (back injury), Wang Zhizhi (recurring injury), Ding Jinhui (some injury who should come back in a week), Zhou Peng (serious injury who may not come back in time for the Asian champs).

Oooh that's tough luck for China. They really look ripe for the picking this year in the Asia championships only advantage for them is they have the longest time out of all these teams before their tournament.

On another note Croatia handling Serbia was something a surprise to me.

Where are the NBA players that can supposedly play for Great Britain? Are none of them playing?

Luol Deng will play while Ben Gordon will not play due to insurance issues.

But if you have to pick something, 9/27 from the FT line basically gave the game to Australia.

Day 2

China 53 Serbia 87
France 71 Australia 67
Croatia 75 UK 70

I don't get Yi Jianlian. He can shoot 3s in the NBA but not in FIBA games where the line is shorter? :confused:

Sun Yue - what a bust. Don't know how he cracked the Lakers' roster before.

Luol Deng will join Great Britain on Saturday, on GB's game against China and play for the team there after.

Can't comment much since I can only look at the stats but Australia is looking pretty good. I'd love to see a full roster team at the olympics.

Only in UK (only games of GB) but I'm thinking about possibility to use proxy servers for watching the game of Great Britain..still I don't know will it work out or not.

Okay, if you want to watch the games, then you can... visit http://www.hoopsfix.com and try to load the game. If you get warning that it's not allowed to watch it in your country, then you should use proxy servers.

In opera you should do this: Opera > Settings > Preferences > Network > Proxy servers....right here tick "Http", type "93.189.5.138" proxy address and port 8080, then tick "use this proxy for all protocols", click okay and enjoy the games (will be both other games on-line today..one game I missed because I was away, sorry).

P.s. later, when you finish watching, I recommend you to clear information in inputs of proxy servers because it can cause you some problems browing other websites or at least it will work slowly because of foreign proxy server.

Works outside of the UK with no issue, though it may only show the GB games.

Well, for me it was forbidden to watch it, wrote that Lithuanian users aren't allowed so I figured out this solution, maybe it will help anyone else, too. Anyway, you're welcome.

Didn't work for me...I suspect if you disconnect it may not let you back on. Anyway, I am watching the game :D

Any working links for posters in the US? The Dishnswish one says it's not authorizd in the US.


Asia and Australia/Oceania should play in the same division.
