    Brazil: Knockout stage, from there I couldn't say because it would depend who they got paired with. This isn't an especially strong Eurobasket so a medal isn't out of the question, though I'd say a 5-6th place finish is more realistic.

    Puerto Rico: Like Brazil I could maybe see them in the final 8, though they couldn't afford to have the slow starts that they had in the Americas. They definitely make the 2nd round at the very least.

    Argentina: Like Puerto Rico definitely in the 2nd round. Once they got their act together, they quite the team though lacking anyone that could take over aside from Scola. I think whether they would go further than that depends entirely on what group they were in. For example if they got put in the group with Germany, France, Russia. They could possibly make the final 8.

    Canada: First round KO most likely, they rely far too much on the three pointer. If they get an easy group they could possibly sneak into the 2nd round, with a victory on a night they get hot, but aside from that no.

    Dominican Republic: If they had had Garcia, I'm pretty sure they would have beat Canada, and with him I think they can do better than the Canadians. Making the second round but just missing the final 8.

    I think that Brasil and Puerto Rico could be in the final eight, thats what I think, Argentina in the second round, Canada a Dominican Rep could be too in the second round with one win!

    All of Brazil, Puerto Rico and Argentina would be able to make the top 8 (remember how big was the gap between the semifinalists and the rest in 2006). They probably might even make it to the semis.

    Canada is completely unpredictable, because of its style, but a top 12 or perhaps top 8 is likely. And so happens wih the Dominicans.

    PR/Brasil are equal.

    I feel

    PR/Brasil > Bulgaria
    PR/Brasil > Croatia (they're tough)
    PR/Brasil > Macedonia
    PR/Brasil > Germany
    PR/Brasil > Great Britain
    PR/Brasil > Israel
    PR/Brasil > Lativa
    PR/Brasil > Lithuana (depleted roster)
    PR/Brasil > Poland
    PR/Brasil >Slovenia (another tough team)
    PR/Brasil > Greece (they got a depleted roster
    PR/Brasil > Russia (No holden or Ak47, not that strong)


    Serbia
    Spain
    France
    Turkey

    Then I put PR/Brasil 5th

    Perhaps Brazil could reach a semifinal.
