    2014-2015? Too early to wait for it, wait for a year or two more I received a prize for BBL 2009(or 2008) podium only in some 2011 For 2014 World Cup almost after a year, for Eurobasket 2015 I'm not sure if I received any. I won some Eurobasket 2015 prizes here and there, so not sure if there was any from knet. But one way or another their manager prizes simply sucks - S size t-shirt, ffs S, who they think are playin' there? Girls and preteen kids? then a small bag for kids and for 2014 2nd place - shitty replica of original Molten ball created for World Cup, which costs some 5 euros in Maxima I guess. Cut it in two and made hats for local bums on hot summer day. Their big thnx and respect were the bigger prize I guess Only real deal was that quiz last year, which was sponsored by mediashop, that Huawei mediapad atleast worth smth...

    But f*ck the prizes, I know they would suck this year again, but that's not the reason I play there for years, it's free and still fun to compete with friends, other people and... we have no other options

    I dunno much about French women but they really know how to look gorgeous regardless of what sport they play. :P

    France defeats Turkey 55-39 in women's tournament opener. Great 2nd half of French team, as usual displaying excellent defense. Endy Miyem and Sarah Michel (4xthrees) top the winners with 14 pts.

    For me despite France's lackluster performance nothing changed my mind from my pre tournament opinion.
    USA is overwhelming favorite, and Spain, France and Serbia are the next level.

    There's a lot of truth in this article, even if he's glossing over just how weak the US squad was in 2004:

    Regardless of who wins the title in basketball, and this applies to all team sports actually, whoever wins is so unimportant in total medals standing table at the end. The title will just count as 1 medal in the overall table.

    Now compare that to swimming or track and fields or diving or boxing or weightlifting. The number of medals won there will have a substantial effect on the medals table.

    A good and fairer way of reflecting overall standings better is to allow for an alternative table where say a basketball, volleyball, soccer, handball or water polo title counts as 5 medals each, meaning 5 gold medals are added when a team is champion say in basketball against 1 for individual titles like in swimming or track and fields

    USA had to go through Australia, Argentina and Spain in both '08 and '12 in the knockout rounds. It could be the exact same teams again but now in just a different order.

    Odds of winning gold medal in my opinion.

    USA 90%
    Spain 6%
    Serbia 2%
    Australia 2%
