    Default Rank the Eurobasket teams

    We all know the final standings, but leaving aside the different brackets, luck, refereeing, etc, which were the teams that played better in your view? Rank the Eurobasket teams!

    Turkey beat Spain.

    Slovenia lost in the overtime from the Spanish

    France beat Greece

    Serbia won the silver medal and Spain won the gold

    So there is a pattern of thought in the rankings..I mean if they beat Spain but lost to Greece..still they have to be better than Greece because this is Spain we are talking about.

    The best team in Europe.

    Well, Greece beat Turkey by one point in overtime. That doesn't necesarily make them the better team, don't you think? And I don't even talk about the officiating.

    All i did was explain the thought pattern here. It makes sense in a prehistoric way of thinking.

    Well, this post is about which team do you think that played better, not about the official standings. My opinion is biased, because I only have been able to follow games played by Spain on TV and some others on internet, but I haven't watched every single game and not many of the groups stages.

    This is just a personal opinion, and a feeling after watching those games. I see Greece as an ultracompetitive team but not so talented and lacking good point guards. But in the end you managed to finish third. I am more impressed with Greece finishing third than with Serbia being second.

    Don't bash me too hard

    Now you are making feel bad.

    not so talented as Slovenia for example..I mean we dont have a Lorbek we only have this little guy we all call Sofoklis..Spanoulis is not bad either..Bourousis i would say he is alright..not great but alright..

    I you said you are entitled to your opinion and i did not mean to offend you with my comment in my previous post.

    I just dont agree and stated the reasons

    I think you have to keep working on your mind reading powers. The thing is the standings don't necesarily reflect the level of the teams. I mean, if Serbia and France were both stopped by the same team, why is one of them in the podium while the other one ended fifth? That's the story, ranking the teams based on actual play, not on final standings.

    Yes but the actual play at any given day reflects on the final standing right?

    For example Spain lost a game but finished first so by your pattern Spain should be below Turkey? No. Spain played better when it mattered just like Greece did. So the story is that teams that played better when iT mattered progressed.

    Anyway it is pointless to discuss on something that obvisouly we can not agree.

    I don't think it's wise to "rank". The ranking has already been made for us in the tournament. I can just split teams in overachievers and underachievers:

    Overachievers:
    1 Serbia (Duda gets by far the best coach award)
    2 Greece (2 playmakers out, coach changed. Yet, managed to get a medal)
    3 Spain (not really overachievers...just finally got what they deserved)
    4 Germany (noone thought that without Dirk, Germany could even get past the 1st round...)

    Underachievers:
    1 Turkey (ok, the loss at QF was bad, but to rank up 8th? History is not gonna write how Turkey beat Spain in the 1st round, but how it ended up 8th!)
    2 France (too good to be left off the final-4)
    3 Israel (ok, not that strong of a team, but lose even to FYROM?)

    I didn't rank Slovenia in underachievers since they already had a bad history of being disqualified in QFs. This time they reached the semis and I believe that 4th position is already good enough...

    And we lost from France by only 2, your point being? Flawed system or not, like it or not, right now we're the third best team in Europe.

    And yeah, you shouldn't talk about the referees.
