    Default FIBA World Rankings

    As we are now nearing the end of the world championships lets have another look at who the best country is in accordance to FIBA..

    Currently it is at:

    1. USA 832.2
    2. YUG* 708.0
    3. ARG 700.0
    4. LTU 460.0
    5. ESP 439.0
    6. ITA 433.0
    7. RUS 362.0
    8. GRE 304.0
    9. AUS 279.0
    10. FRA 273.0
    11. PUR 247.6
    12. CAN 231.0
    13. GER 227.0
    14. CHN 212.0
    15. BRA 203.0
    16. NZL 178.0

    As WC and Oly are x5, Turkey should shoot up the ranks, YUG will slide down and Spain and Greece should overtake Lithuania (possibly).

    The results of the last WC fall off and the results of this one are added on so there will be some different positions this time round..

    OK lets make this interesting now and as I am not too happy that we got beat by Spain, lets put things into perspective.

    If we divide the current ranking score by the population, what do we get...

    Population
    1. USA 298,213,000
    2. YUG* 14,306,136
    3. ARG 38,747,000
    4. LTU 3,431,000
    5. ESP 43,064,000
    6. ITA 58,093,000
    7. RUS 143,202,000
    8. GRE 11,120,000
    9. AUS 20,155,000
    10. FRA 60,496,000
    11. PUR 3,955,000
    12. CAN 32,268,000
    13. GER 82,689,000
    14. CHN 1,315,844,000
    15. BRA 186,405,000
    16. NZL 4,028,000
    17. ANG 15,941,000
    18. TUR 73,193,000
    19. CRO 4,551,000
    20. VEN 26,749,000

    Hmmm, thats what I like to see

    1 LTU 13.41%
    2 PUR 6.26%
    3 YUG* 4.95%
    4 NZL 4.42%
    5 CRO 2.75%
    6 GRE 2.73%
    7 ARG 1.81%
    8 AUS 1.38%
    9 ESP 1.02%
    10 ANG 0.98%
    11 ITA 0.75%
    12 CAN 0.72%
    13 FRA 0.45%
    14 VEN 0.37%
    15 USA 0.28%
    16 GER 0.27%
    17 RUS 0.25%
    18 TUR 0.18%
    19 BRA 0.11%
