Interview with the coach on fiba.com. Nice to see they expect to be competitive :rolleyes:


The first objective is to enjoy something historic for the country. We have players who will be taking photos with their NBA rivals. It will be an historic occasion for many of them to play against some of their idols like (Argentina's) Manu Ginobili. Second, we expect to fight every game for an upset. The third and most important expectation is dreaming of moving to the next phase, which means needing to defeat one of the rivals in the group.

Funny. I don't know how good Paraguay is but this reminds me after Saudi Arabia lost to China 10-98 in 2005 Asian Championship, the players requested Yao Ming take a photo with them.

And Yao didn't even play in that game.

This reminds me of when Uruguay played against Team USA in the 2007 FIBA Americas Championship.

The Uruguayan media heavily criticised the team for not being competitive and being obsessed in having their photos taken with the players after the game.
