    What I didn't like at all was the USA team received their medals just after their game vs Argentina, it wasn't fair, I like the 3 winners receive their medals all together
    GASOLDEPENDENCE.... I love it

    I second that! And by the way, why was the 3-4 place final a day before. Didn't they use to play just before the final on the same day? Maybe that's the reason for the medal ceremony being split in to two...

    So how does it work with Serbia and Yugoslavia???

    OK they are 4th now so does Serbian results only count for this from now on?

    How does Montenegra buy in to this? Maybe they need to apportion their results to put them on the board as M is now joined FIBA???

    Or do they need to start from scratch?

    Lithuania had to start from scratch after they regained independence from Russia...

    China is behind Australia, and Turkey and Slovenia are six and ten places behind AUS. What kind of ranking is that?

    The ranking is calculated within the scope of a 2 Olympic Games cycle. Here are the number of competitions that are taken into account:

    2 FIBA World Championships
    2 Olympic Basketball Tournaments
    2 FIBA U19 World Championships
    2 FIBA U21 World Championships
    5 FIBA Africa Championships
    5 FIBA Americas Championships
    5 FIBA Asia Championships
    5 Eurobasket Championships
    5 FIBA Oceania Championships

    China has finished in the last 2 Olympics 8th/10th and 12th in the 2002 WC. Ignoring all other results that about puts them 11th....

    Australia has performed better over this period etc

    This is not his ranking it is FIBAs.

    Have a look at the tournaments below and answer if Poland has played in any of them and if so whjat place they came.

    I cant remember them being in the last 2 Olympics or WC or even in European championships.

    If the answer is no to all those tournaments then they are ranked 75th like all other unlisted countries..

    European Championship for Men (1965) - 3rd place
    European Championship for Men (1963) - 2nd place

    I agree! All medal winners should receive their medals together, it is a special moment for all of them. Too bad they did that, it took away some of the fun and celebrating for their fans.

    ...because 3rd place game should also be played on the same day of the finals game...

    i can't comment on the rankings because my country is still suspended by fiba but i'm pretty sure that we have a great national team
    ROCK ON PHILIPPINES!
