I don't know about location of the draw, it indeed looks strange. Why not London, the place where it should be made? However probably it doesn't matter much, but seedings are totally random here. I wonder where did you take it from, Kings? Any official source or just you put it randomly by yourself?

FIBA ESCOLHE RIO PARA SEDE DO SORTEIO OLÍMPICO

Lubomir KOTLEBA, diretor da FIBA.
Rio de Janeiro – Além de ser a sede dos Jogos Olímpicos de 2016, o Rio de Janeiro foi escolhido neste mês para ter a honraria de receber os dirigentes da Central Board da Federação Internacional de Basketball (Fiba) para uma das principais reuniões da entidade no ano de 2012. A entidade maior do basquete mundial também irá fazer os sorteios e a ordem dos jogos do basquete para as Olimpíadas de Londres, que serão realizadas no período de 27 de julho a 12 de agosto deste ano. O evento será organizado pelo Comitê Olímpico Brasileiro (COB), com a logística da Confederação Brasileira de Basketball (CBB). Os sorteios e tabela do masculino e feminino, que o Brasil estará presente nos dois, fato que não ocorria desde 1994, em Atlanta (EUA).

A reunião da Central Board da FIBA, no Rio, será nos dias 28 e 29 de abril e terá o comando do ex-árbitro e atual diretor de competições da Fiba, Lubomir Kotleba, que tem uma relação muito boa com o basquete brasileiro. Ele foi também um dos árbitros que apitou a histórica vitória do Brasil sobre os Estados Unidos na final do Pan-americano de 1987, em Indianápolis (EUA), por 120 a 115, com a Seleção Brasileira ficando com a medalha de ouro.

Carlos Nunes, presidente da Confederação Brasileira de Basketball, ficou muito feliz de ver a reunião da Central Board da Fiba, no Rio de Janeiro, mas será um convidado de honra do encontro. “É um evento da Fiba e do Comitê Olímpico Brasileiro. Nós, da CBB, vamos ajudar apenas na parte logística do acontecimento e torcer para que tenhamos sorte nos sorteios,” disse o presidente da CBB.

Paulinho Villas Boas de Almeida, diretor de Relações Institucionais da CBB, adiantou que o Rio de Janeiro irá receber em torno de 50 membros do Bureau Central da Fiba. O local da reunião e do sorteio ainda não foi definido, podendo acontecer no auditório do Comitê Olímpico Brasileiro ou no hotel onde os dirigentes da Fiba irão se hospedar.

Exactly. Brazil making a pair with Tunisia? Terrible...It should be Tunisia + China and Brazil + France, not?

Tunisia+China yes, not sure about Brazil+France. Before Beijing 2008 draw (the picture below) it was both top European teams in one pair

3889


So now it'd be Spain+France, while back then we had 3 Euro teams, so 3rd was paired with hosts (Lithuania+China), now we have 3 American teams, so I assume it might be Great Britain+Brazil

Don't know if seedings are accurate, but they're not random. Check the fiba world rankings. Each group is of the highest teams available.

1 USA
2 Spain

3 Argentina
9 Australia

10 China
12 France

13 Brazil
32 Tunisia

43 Great Britain

Again I don't know if they're right, but it's a definite pattern.

I see your point, now it makes little bit more sense, but still I find it quite random, cause the seedings simply just aren't set like that nor in WC, nor in OG. Continental principle is important during the draw - to not have majority teams from one continent in one group, while rankings doesn't has any influence. I really doubt that FIBA would change that, but we'll see

If Tunisia and Great Britain end up in one group, the top contender(s) could have an easy run to the knockout stages and have the chance to rest some key players in the run-up.

Does WQ1 and WQ2 mean we will get the 1st and 2nd place teams from the Olympic Qualifying Tournament? Or do they just qualify 3 teams and then do a draw?

The additional draw will be held after qualifiers

Regarding draw, kinda interesting groups. "A" one looks like little bit stronger with USA bein' clear favorites and Tunisia outsiders. France and Argentina + 2 qualifiers promises an interesting battle for play-offs spots. "B" one looks little bit weaker. Spain should be 1st. China most probably will have to deal with outsiders role. Everything else depends on what kind of rosters will bring GB and Brazil, while Australia without Bogut doesn't look too convincing. I'd say Spain, Brazil and qualified team should be through, while key game will be between Brits and Aussies for the last spot

its 3 slots, I don't know if is like Pre-Olympic final order... don't think so.

if Brazil plays with all players incluiding Nene, maybe a chance for 2nd place in best of chances, but a 3rd would be a more solid result... let's see what european will came to our group.

Group A looks to have gotten the stronger team from five of the six pairs. Not necessarily a bad thing since it means a more favorable knockout stage draw.

Dtown
04-30-2012, 07:30 PM
Seems A is a little bit tougher, though we can't get a full idea until the qualifiers are over. Did kind of want the US to play GB, but there's an outside shout they could meet in the knockout stage.

DarkoMVP
04-30-2012, 08:09 PM
So Australia has no Irving or Bogut?

And England probably has Deng, Gordon, Mensah-Bonsu and BJ Mullens?

I think England may have the advantage.

"A" a little bit stronger? Land Lithuania and Russia (or Greece) to A group and these groups are totally different in terms of quality. Basically only Spain stands there as a winning Olympic team in B group as Australia's good times are so deep in the history. Off course potentially Brazil and GB might be a power in 2012 (far from being convinced of that) and there should be another strong European team, but if happens as I said most of (usually) successful Olympic teams will be in A group - USA, Argentina, Lithuania, France.

Saying that it's better to be in group A looking forward to knockout stage

a group can become scary and poor tunisie all i can say... imagine from qualifiers comes to group A Russia and Lithuania.
Usa-France-Argentina-Russia-Lithuania in one group !!! this gonna become a bar fight just for qualifying to 1/4 game :) and group b will be like paradise if compare a and b...But anyway if my national will make olimpic games i still would choose group A its better have bar fights in group game and relative talking have easier oponent in most important stage 1/4 ;]

So Lithuania has been drawn into the same group as the United States in the mens' basketball tournament:

Group A

Argentina
France
Lithuania
Nigeria
Tunisia
U.S.A.

Group B

Australia
Brazil
China
Great Britain
Russia
Spain

This means we'll definitely get to see another classic battle between the United States and Lietuva!
