    My rankings at this moment:

    1. United States

    2. Spain
    3. Serbia
    4. France
    5. Lithuania

    6. Australia
    7. Argentina
    8. Croatia
    9. Venezuela
    10. Brazil
    11. Nigeria

    The United States is my odds-on favourite for the Gold while Spain, Serbia, France and Lithuania will contend for the other two medals.

    I can deal with the fact that you somehow rate your national team higher than Serbia, France, Spain and other european powerhouses.But it's insanely unrealistic to place your team or actually ANY team at the same tier with the States. For them its more of a mickey mouse cup. We already know they are gonna win the gold without even knowing the players that are gonna be there.We euro peasants need to bow down and accept their dominance

    Usagre's power ranking so far is the most accurate

    I did not say that Lithuania is stronger than the United States, Spain and France, but that Lithuania is a member of the group, which is actually fighting for medals, allow me to say the equipment which is better than the previous tournament who won medals. Even if we do not D.Motiejuno we actually claiming medals. Finally there is the story of the FIBA rankings and so on .To you do not know some of the players it's your problem, because it does not prevent them to play in NBA or ACB league.

    No brother. Let's write like this, to easier understand me.

    1. United States
    2. Serbia, Spain, France
    3. Brazil, Australia
    4. Argentina, Croatia, Lithuania - the same lavel
    5.Venezuela, Nigeria, China

    United States, Serbia, Spain, France, Brazil, Australia - all this teams are much better than Lithuania. We're talking about this year and by God, and on the next because you have a very bad team. You do not have a bright future. Maybe this is not like you because you're a Lithuanian, but that's a fact.

    You're posting in the wrong thread then. We don't deal in facts here. Only opinions.

    The facts will be determined in a few weeks time in Rio.

    Funniest thread of Eurobasket 2015 is back for Olympics... and it delivers again

    Ok, I know it's a bit too early to rank the teams (for my liking), no final rosters, with some key players questionable, no friendlies for some teams, but some conclusions can be made

    1. USA - no doubt here, even without some top players they are still obvious favorite

    2-4. Spain, France, Serbia - 2nd tire of teams, most talented ones, most likely to fight for medals

    Then it gets tough

    Brazil and Argentina are aging, but playin' in South America is obviously advantage, moreover Brazil at home. On other hand I rate Lithuania as better team now, that team spirit Kazlauskas build during this Olympic cycle can't be ignored, so hard to make a choice now, probably it'll stay as 3 teams group for now, let's see if Lithuania will have D-Mo, if Argentina and Brazil will stay healthy till Olympics

    5-7. Lithuania, Argentina, Brazil - no final, but there's still a shot for semi or maybe even bronze

    8-10. Croatia, Australia, Nigeria - dark horses of the tournament. Still, maybe it's me, but it's hard to trust Croaita goin' for higher than that. The same for Australia, too unstable, unproven, having hard time against Euros. Nigeria has good pool of talent, but can they get the best out of it??? that's a question. 1/4 at best for all

    11. Venezuela - nothing spectacular, but still tough team to beat on home continent, that should be enough not to finish last in group, but that's about all I'm afraid

    12. China - simply IMO the worst team outthere

    I guess till the start of the tournament it might change here and there, mostly in the middle of ranking

    A. 1.Usa 2.France 3.Serbia 4.Australia
    B.1.Spain 2.Argentina 3.Lithuania 4.Brasil

    1/4

    Usa-Brasil
    Argentina-Serbia
    France-Lithuania
    Spain-Australia

    logic say like that about top4 teams.But usually one favorite falls.Biggest chance for an upset in 1/4 in my opinnion will have Lithuania and Argentina.They are proven playoof teams.More chances will have that team thats gets Serbia in 1/4 from group A

    I think it's very much impossible to predict who's gonna place how here, both groups can have surprises, especially B which is a complete unknown. The only realistic thing to expect is what most of people already said here:

    Tier 1 - USA
    Tier 2 - France, Spain and Serbia, in no particular order, although I would put Serbia above if Boban somehow ends up coming, that team could give USA a run for their money. Currently with Raduljica and Stimac against Cousins and Jordan... not gonna be fun. French and Spanish front court will be troublesome too.

    For the rest, I don't know, perhaps I would put Lithuania alone in next tier, slightly above Argentina, Australia, Brazil and Croatia, just because its Lithuania, you can never underestimate them, and they are sure to put up a good fight with any of the tier 2 teams. Nigeria definitely above Venezuela and China.

    Can make better estimates when we know full rosters of all teams, and maybe see few prep games with them.

    The "I like Serbian bbal school" guy has ranked Serbia twice 4th at the group and then again twice to be eliminated from the first knockout,while he thinks that Lithuania will win either silver or bronze.Get serious one time,you make other members show disrespectful behaviours towards Lithuanian guys because of your arrogant posts.
