    Default predictions for olympics and pre olympic qualifying tournament

    Olympics : *Host-China
    *WBC champion : Spain
    *Asia :Iran !! (they are gonna be trashed , took full advantage of ali mahmoud,s injury and lebanon,s bad game and theres no way they will lose by less than 50 each game !!)
    *Africa :Angola
    *Americas:USA and Argentine
    +Europe:Greece and France
    *Oceania:Australia

    Pre Olympics : *Asia:Lebanon and S.Korea
    *Africa:Egypt and Nigeria
    *Americas:Brazil,Puerto Rico and Venezula
    *Europe:Lithuania,Germany,Turkey,Serbia
    *Oceania:New zealand

    three teams from this tournament will play at the olympics...the 3 teams in my opinion will be Lithuania,Tukey and Serbia......Lebanon in my opinion can beat venezuala as they beat them twice last year in less than a week and this team will be even weaker since they are rebuilding with younger players...i think we can beat south korea as we beat them last week and new zealand(they are maybe the worst team here(watched their game a few days ago against china who were without Yao Ming and lost by 30 pts...i think we can also play more close games wid Nigeria and Egypt but other than these i dt think leb can beat any1 else or qualify to the olympics.....Hopefully we can get the lebanese/brazilian center who was supposed to play in asia this year if politics were nt involved nd we wldve won it for sure had he played since we had weakness under the basket especially against Iran , where the coach doesnt like to put the largest lineup on the court...and we can get the talented plays from the U19 like rodrigue akl and the tall players like tarek hauchar(208)...and leb can use this mostly for experience and building for the future

    Anyway who do u think will be the teams at the olympics and pre olympics and who do u think will be the 3 teams who will top the pre olympics and qualify to the olympics ?

    hard competition but we should try and essay maybe the luck will be with us.
    We haven't anything to loose,we should prepare well even our chances are too low but this is a good experience for our players.

    I think Lithuania canada and maybe Lebanon why not ?? everything can happen in basketball.

    its a bit to early to tell especially in South America and Europe we don't know yet on which team will not get through on their sub qualifier zones but if Lithuania and France don't do well in Eurobasket they are the hot favorites I'm not counting out Lebanon and South Korea they'll give some surprises in the pre olympic tournament as long as Khatib and Ha will give their best By the way how many remainng slots will be given in pre olympic tourney

    for the Olympics if the US team will include Lebron James, Jason Kidd and Michael Redd and Tim Duncan they can reclaim their supremacy in the sport but they'll have to surpass Greece, Argentina and Spain. For China eventhough they have the homecourt advantage the highest attainable place can they achieve is 7th place they'll be lucky if they'll be in quarterfinal stage same goes to IRAN

    My lebanese friends This is only my suggestion If I were the Lebanese Basketball President your Senior team must give priority to prepare for Pre Olympic tourney and for the Pan arab games let your under 22 team or 18 under team handle it. It might be very beneficiary to gain experience of your future stars in your Senior NT

    I think that the US is really very serious about this coming olympics. I read that jason kidd will be playing, and with kobe, lebron and wade, they'll be tough to crack. they got some bigs as well. I've got a feeling that they'll win the olympics next year.

    about the the wildcards for the olympics, I think lebanon really has tough opponents. almost all of those teams are all bigger than lebanon, in terms of players size I mean. but agree, lebanon must go to the tournament with the aim of winning. as we say here in RP, "bilog ang bola" (the ball is round), anything can happen in a basketball game....
