    Maybe the first stages should be taken from hosting country and made at home of one of the NTs at each group.
    Or make it possible to buy tickets just for 1 game and not the whole day, that way tickets would be a lot cheaper and people would save a lot of money.

    Of course there was no 2nd stage...but with 3 more games
    and whole tournament schedule extended to that 3 weeks,
    that would be just ideal.

    I disagree with idea to cancel 2nd stage games...there are more
    positive than negative things. We see a lot of basket and much
    more better comparision between the NTs.
    Winner must put much more effort to reach 1st.

    Just compare this two schedules (Euro, Eurobasket):

    There is one sport organisation, which just don't know how to do his job...
    which one, is crystal clear to me.
    FIBA Europe has a problem that the cannot tell the NBA to make a pause at their schedule and also FIBA-world don't have enough power.
    Besides, preparations as a team right before the games are more impotent in basketball then in football, and this will require more time.
    But I agree that it would be grate if it would be possible.

    Eurobasket sistem is so bad. Semi-final do in one day , why quarter-finals can do in one day? Because fiba need some money , that why they do quarter-final in not one day.

    2nd group stage should be removed and the knock-out games should last more. I mean there should be a bigger space within the different stages (quorter finals - semi finals - finals) so that the players can rest a little...
