      It's shaping up to be the best basketball tournament ever. Top 10 teams im the world at full strength going at each other. Outside of one or two teams, there are just no easy opponents. Every game will be a treat for basketball fans.

        Probably the best ever indeed. USA will still collect their aging, but still good GOATs like Lebron, KD, Curry (and they won't have such talent for a long time after this). Best player of the game Jokic should be available. Canada will have SGA againmost likely and this time Murray (maybe Wiggins too). Only one bummer is that only one Giannis or Luka can be in Olympics. And maybe none of them if some Croatia or Dom rep won't kick them both So we'll see most of top 10 players in the world at the moment in Olympics. From individuals stand point, I hope Spain will make it to see still good Rubio (who will shape up soon), Lithuania with Sabonis and Latvia with Porzingis.

        Imagine couple of possible groups if the balance will happen to be off:

        USA, SERBIA, CANADA, GREECE

        or

        GERMANY, AUSTRALIA, FRANCE, SLOVENIA


        1. USA.
        2. Canada (if SGA, Murray, Wiggins + NBA depth will be available I have the second best team in planet now).
        3. Serbia.
        4. Germany.
        5. France.
        6. Spain.
        7-10 Australia
        7-10 Latvia
        7-10 Slovenia/Greece
        7-10 Lithuania/Italy

        Thing is WC can't attract A teams of USA, Canada (or even top Euro teams). Eurobasket lacks USA, Canada, Australia (and used to miss Argentina). This what makes Olympics the best tournament in the world and it's not even close.
        LTU NT will snatch Eurobasket 2029 title with this roster:

        Jokubaitis, Marciulionis, Laurencikas
        Indrusaitis, Brazdeikis, Rubstavicius
        Buzelis, Lelevicius
        Murauskas, Sirvydis
        Tubelis, Krivas

            I do think 2023 European women champions Belgium will pose an immense threat to threat to Team USA. Meesseman and several of Belgians took their leave of absence from WNBA and instead strutting their hoops in European leagues to be closer at home so as to allow them to have adequate time to intensify their cohesiveness…

              Now they know their preliminary round opponents in Paris I do think Steve Kerr will expedite the selection process. Warriors not making the play-offs will have some plusses for US Avengers…

                Canada is looking in decent shape as of draw time.
                The Core 7 NBA players from the World Cup team are all healthy (at the moment) and none will be Free Agents this summer (when does that ever happen?).
                This includes: SGA, NAW, Barrett, Olynyk, Powell, Dort & Brooks.

                Jamal Murray is his usual dinged up self. That along with a deep playoff run makes him ever questionable. I'm still 50/50 on him playing.
                I'm still not sure what happens with any new adds. Of most interest are Andrew Wiggins, Trey Lyles, Brandon Clarke, Ben Mathurin, Shaedon Sharpe & Andrew Nembhard.
                Clarke, Sharpe, Mathurin all have health issues and I consider out - of those Maturin was most eager to play.
                Wiggins is having another very odd season, very up and down, some issues apparant. Would they add him? I have no idea.
                Lyles would be a nice underated add to give a little more size up front (maybe, maybe not).
                Nembhard is the only one who I think is a probable addition (rumor are that he wants to play and fills a back-up PG need).
                Chris Boucher is an every year question mark. The ever improving 7'4 Zach Edey is questionable as he will be drafted this summer.

                Lots of other periferal NBA players to consider who are making a mark. But I don;t think any would move the needle.

                It is really Murray, Wiggins, Nembhard, Lyles, Boucher who could realistily add some value as additions to the WC team. Only 2 or 3 are needed.
                Murray, plus big or two and maybe a back up PG is all that is required here.

                  Canadians will amplify their noise in Paris, they are setting their bar high not less than silverware podium finish. With coach Jordi Fernandez and SGA leading it’s possible…
