    I'd say 1, maybe 2 and it'll be NTs from Europe

    Britain of course is in

    Australia should be in barring shocking upset.

    China isn't the lock they usually are, then again if they actually have Yao back like they're saying they're still the favorite.

    I expect at least one of Serbia, France and Croatia to be there. Wouldn't be shocked if two are there.

    So yeah 1-2 teams.

    A friend living in London told me that Civil Defense Forces and Riot Dispersal Squads are constantly patrolling.

    Australia beat China 71-43 without Andrew Bogut, David Andersen, Nathan Jawai, Julian Khazzouh, Patty Mills, Brad Newley, Joe Ingles, Aleks Maric and Matthew Nielsen. What's going on with China this year?!

    Oooh that's tough luck for China. They really look ripe for the picking this year in the Asia championships only advantage for them is they have the longest time out of all these teams before their tournament.

    On another note Croatia handling Serbia was something a surprise to me.

    Where are the NBA players that can supposedly play for Great Britain? Are none of them playing?

    Luol Deng will play while Ben Gordon will not play due to insurance issues.

    Cool, but what's the excuse for all the other matches they have lost this year?

    No excuse they are just bad.

    But if you have to pick something, 9/27 from the FT line basically gave the game to Australia.

    Day 2

    China 53 Serbia 87
    France 71 Australia 67
    Croatia 75 UK 70

    I don't get Yi Jianlian. He can shoot 3s in the NBA but not in FIBA games where the line is shorter?

    Sun Yue - what a bust. Don't know how he cracked the Lakers' roster before.

    Luol Deng will join Great Britain on Saturday, on GB's game against China and play for the team there after.

    Can't comment much since I can only look at the stats but Australia is looking pretty good. I'd love to see a full roster team at the olympics.

    I happen to watch the replay of the AUS-FRA game. Great game, can't take nothing away from Australia.
