    Default FIBA-Americas Championship 2013

    Venezuela will host. Paraguay again gets the spot vacated by the US.

    Okay. One in thing is for sure. No USA team to the games. It would be Paraguay or Mexico.

    I guess, due to the massive success of the Olympic qualifying tournament, FIBA decides to go back to Venezuela...

    Well, I 'll give you the source.

    If my spanish are correct, all these sites informing about the participation of Paraguay instead of the States.
    But i don't think that NBA or federation of USA will ever allow their players to travel to Venezuela.

    Thank you, but I hope the Venezuelan media is not right with this. Lets wait for FIBA Americas official statement. Paraguay sucked big time in Argentina last year.

    Panama has been banned by FIBA from all international competitions - Mexico (suprise,surprise) is back in once again.
    Now I hope they dont bring in Pep Claros as a coach again. he failed to assemble a good team for the Centrobasket and failed with the Pioneros in national competition...and please leave good old Horacio at home, gracias!

    Don't you guys agree that even Venezuela or Dominican Republic have real chances finishing among the four?

    with the naturalization of Donta Smith, now Venezuela has an outside chance to get in. Still my 6th team on my power ranking. DR has a real shot.

    The Dominicans still dont have a strong PG, especially after Sosa is not the same guy anymore. Coronado is simply not good enough to compete on such a level. Flores and Morban back then were the weak spot on the team and now its the same with Coronado, Ramon and Sosa. Also, no Horford means trouble under the boards even if Towns is doing good and Yack is still a beast.

    Venezuela as hosts will have a good chance to make it just because of playing at home.

    I think people should post their power rankings.

    Mine is:

    1. Puerto Rico
    2. Argentina
    3. Brazil
    4. Canada

    Since the inaugural event back in 1980, both countries at the same time have never finished outside the top four.
