    I don't think they were booing the anthem, because they started booing when the anthem was already playing and finished doing it quickly, it didn't look like it was directed at the anthem at all. They were probably booing politicians, but it's still bad that they they did it while the anthem was being played.

    The best player: Durant
    The rising star: Pocius (The kid has it!)
    The good surpise: Lithuania
    The bad surpise: Spain/Greece
    Good but ugly team: Russia (Ugly playing style, no stars, but made her best)
    Good but ugly player: Teodosic. Great player. Shitty personality. Once again he didn't come to the ceremony (he did the same in Euroleague). He should learn to behave himself and to give more respect to all the people around him. I hope Dusan Ivkovich will do something about it.
    The Ugly: Attendance. (I will not speak about the refs. They were bad, but they were bad in every big tournament that I remember. So there was nothing unusual at this WC)

    The good:

    1. USA. Their respect to others, It was kind of surprise, but I think this is because of Coach K.
    2. The Spain finished just 6th .. I can`t stand them..
    3. Lithuania. No comments..

    The bad:

    1. FIBA or Schedule + refs, I feel bad for Serbia at this point. They wanted a Turkey-USA final, they succeed.
    2. Boring final.. turkey can`t play then they are not winning..

    The ugly:

    1. Greek-Russia .. I do not know if that game was the funniest or the ugliest match ever.. greeks showed how to turn basketball into good horror film. 10/10 .. good job.

    The Good: This Group Side: USA Lithuania Argentina and Russia

    The Bad: This Group Side: Turkey Serbia Spain and Slovenia

    The Ugly:

    USA beat Turkey for 1st place
    Lithuania beat Serbia for 3rd place
    Argentina beat Spain for 5th place
    Russia beat Slovenia for 7th place

    what kind of grouping is that? We can see which side is strong:

    In my own opinion Lithuania deserve a silver platter...

    I do not think that something was much wrong with grouping, because:
    1) All 8 teams which took 1st and 2nd places in their groups had advanced to the 1/4 finals round - no exceptions! (this means that all 2nd teams won against the 3rd teams of other groups)
    2) All 1st teams of the groups advanced to the semifinals (once again, no exceptions).

    This shows that seeding was almost perfect.

    The Good: The drama matches Turkey-Serbia, Serbia-Spain, Serbia-Croatia, Serbia-Argentina, Serbia-Germany, Argentina-Brazil and USA-Brazil. The nice court atmosphere. Milos Teodosic snubbing FIBA's award. The topsy-turvy group A. Kevin Durant, Luis Scola, Marcelinho Huertas, Milos Teodosic, Juan Carlos Navarro and the Lithuanian NT in the match vs Argentina. Young, potent stars like Mantas Kalnietis, Goran Dragic, Vidmar, Marko Keselj, Martynas Pocius, Timofey Mozgov, Tim Olbrecht, all had decent tournaments. New teams will appear in the next Eurobasket as contenders

    The Bad: The worst USA team since the late 1980s won gold. This never happens in real life, just in fiction or fixed tournaments. The treatment of Jonas Kazlauskas towards Dimitris Diamantidis. The Spanish NT afte Calderon's injury. The Greek NT after the friendlies. Slovenia vs USA and Turkey kept on being scared. The lucky USA draw. The officiating in all USA matches. Milenko Tepic's and Ricky Rubio's dreadful performances. The disrespect to this amazing Serbia in the semi-final with Turkey. Asik's acting. The non-existant presence of fans in all games besides the Turkish ones

    The Ugly: The worst referees in history. Pre-decided final. Obvious lack of audience. Very low level basketball


    WC was the lowest level one since 1998. And it was unfair. Better team didn't win
    Sexuality when one reaches their 30s is either mainstream or sick, but no matter what, it isn't pure

    Bro, I think that's pretty much irrelevant for him as he apostrophized that TEAM was much more important for him then individual record after each game in this tournament, plus they(FIBA) were shameful toward him and his team

    Yes I am.

    They were booing when politicans entered the hall,

    they were booing when single politicans were giving some awards (including respective medals)

    and they were booing when politicans were leaving the hall (it was during the anthem).

    Unless you somehow saw that there was no single politican still in the hall just before the anthem started (and duing the first few seconds of playing it). I doubt it because you can not see that on TV and be sure of that unless you were in the hall yourself.
    So lets wait for somebody who was watching the game live in the arena to clear the air.

    At the Euroleague ceremony, he had gastric flu (gastroenteritis) and he was at the hospital for an IV in order to manage to play at the F4

    Before the start of the USA - Lithuania game, he mentioned how passionate and how the Lithuanians take pride in their basketball. He said that everybody in Lithuania are watching the game even in their town squares. I guess he tried to make a joke about since everybody is watching their team vs USA, you would be able to rob a bank in Lithuania without a quick getaway. Sorry I don't have a link to it.

    Considering that Eurobasket in Poland was his first FIBA tournament after a 7 year break, your statement does seem to be sound indeed...

    If he is a FIBA boy then why not send him to ref the finals? And also how come that in 2009 was his first FIBA tournament in 7 years you do not make much sense, you know.

    Well maybe he wants in this tournament final because FIUBA got mad at his words that the refs are making it easier for team USA compared to other teams by not counting all of the traveling if they do not count it to be the significant.
