  • 2022 FIBA AmeriCup

    Not sure if someone wants to start a subforum here, but I thought we should get this started.

    As the AmeriCup has no relevance for Olympic or World Cup qualifcation it seems only pride and some ranking points are at stake.

    Not totally sure what other countries are doing yet (Argentia looks to be sending a full squad). But Canada I am pretty sure will not be taking the AmeriCup too seriously and will be sending a young training team. That means no NBA players and maybe only a few of the European vets that have been manning our in-season WC Qualfier teams.

    This is disappointing to me and a real lost opportunity to build some chemistry and cohesivness among the NBA team. Heck, I'd be fine if it was just the in-seaon WC Qualfier team (which is pretty good). Also a lost opportunity to gain ranking points and help avoid a disasterous "Death Pool" again like we faced at the 2019 World Cup.

    I'll still tune in, especially if Canada floors some decent young and upcoming players. There are plenty of them out there, but I think most are going to be focused elsewhere (NBA camps, Euro contracts etc.).

      DR with Chris Duarte, Karl Anthony Towns and Al Horford in their preliminary 25 man roster.

      No gaurantee these guys all play (I think Duarte is in), but it would be nice to see for the DR.

          US loses to Mexico and Canada (who are these guys?) loses to Brazil on the first day. Even Colombia and Uruguay don't have all their top players.

            This tournament is pretty bad. One US game postponed due to flooding and it looks like another might be as well.

              US team of old guys who play like old guys edges Puerto Rico 85-84 as Norris Cole hits a tough shot with one second left. PR barely has anyone actually from PR anymore so it was just two teams of random Americans playing against each other. If Argentina can't win this tournament they should shut down their program.
