    Default France national team 2014

    PARIS (FIBA Basketball World Cup) - France are assured of having a deep and talented roster when they arrive at the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, yet their squad won't include veteran point guard Tony Parker.

    The EuroBasket 2013 MVP is going to rest this summer and miss out on Group A games against Spain, Serbia, Brazil, Iran and Egypt.

    Batum is IN. I feel this WC will be competitive as never. A lot of stars, only few will be missed.

    I don´t know how Rodrigue Beaubois played in Charleroi,but it is difficult to comprehend his absence in the final roster.
    Beaubois is 1000 times better than Heurtel and Diot...and without Parker, he is even more necessary.
    This world championship would be his debut but... it makes no sense, Collet, ...at all.
    If Collet thinks that Diot and Heaurtel can stop Calderon,Ricky and Rodriguez.... Collet lives in the moon.

    Who cares about stopping Calderon, Ricky and whoever when you also have to worry about the frontline. It's not like I expect them to win against Spain anyway.
    And saying that Beaubois is 1000 better than Diot or Heurtel when you don't know in what shape he is, well.
    We'll see after a full season in Le Mans.

    I watched a lot of games of Heurtel in Spanish League and he is a bad,bad,point guard: he don´t know how to rule a team.
    Diot is better than Heurtel,but is not a star. Beaubois was a star and could be again.
    Don´t You think that Beaubois could be,at least, the third point guard of FRance?
    I remember his skills and good games in NBA: he only needs minutes of game.
    He is potencially the best point guard and his game would improve during the tournament.
    He played in Charleroi so he has not been inactive during last months.
    I am not talking only about Spanish point guards but the rest of the teams.
    Yes, France has to worry about the centers and ...the whole team.
    Collet has wasted Beaubois without reason.
    Incredible.

    Well, obviously Collet doesn't share your opinion of Heurtel, and neither do I. Also, Heurtel fits more the point guard role than Beaubois, who is a combo guard.
    You also have to take into account the fact that Beaubois has played regularly what, a couple of months max this year after a long time of inactivity. And it's not like he is a pillar of the french national team.
    You remember his good games in the NBA but that was a long time ago. I sure hope he can come back to this level but it's safe to say that he's not there now.
    As no new player really stoud out this season, Collet made the choice of people that were with the team last year at the Euro Championship and that gave him satisfaction.
    He's not "wasting" Beaubois, and he has certainly not selected him without a reason.

    I don't see this France being near to the level of last year. Parker's absence will hurt not inly skills wise, but the atmosphere as well. Team's looking without mental leader. Sure, the triangle offence with Diaw, Batum and Gelabale will make a lot of trouble, but 1 and 5 positions look rather weak, specially 5. I think this team will be a bit less motivated as well. Still strong individually, not forgetting a fighter De Colo, but I feel in the air as unit as a whole is lacking something. There's no sparkle and the lack of quality. I'm not sure this team is among contenders this summer.

    If the European champs aren't going to be that good, which European teams do you think will play well at the WC?

    Works again. France looked weak in this game. Soft defence, lack of intensity. It's not only about bricking really.
