    What is this bullshit? Last thing i want to see is Diamantidis and the other guys playing some IDIOTIC tournament vs SHITTY teams. They are playin 60+ games per season already, for fucks sake. What does FIBA want? Basketball players dropping dead in courts like footballers do lately? Piss off. SHITHEADS.

    Why Puerto Rico is number 2, when we win the bronze medal over Brazil?

    The "2nd Chance" Olympic Qualifying Tournament will be July 7-13, 2008. FIBA plans to announce the host by the end of November.

    With only seven days to get down to three qualifying teams, the draw will be very important. The Euro and Americas teams are much stronger than the others.

    All the Iran-Israel discussion is irrelevant because Iran already qualified as Asian champions and Israel didn't make it out of their group in the Euro Championship.

    can someone explain why Spain qualified directly to the Olympic Games and not Argentina?

    Spain qualified as 2006 World Champions and Argentina qualified as 2nd place in the Americas.

    Olympic Games.... Argentina is the Olympic Champ, why the f... does the world champ get into the Olympics as easy as that?

    the Olympic Champ should defend its title and Argentina should have gotten their spot automatically

    Argentina get a direct spot on WC, when they won the olympics in Athens. The winner of 08 olympics will get a direct spot for the WC 2010. The winner of WC 2010 one direct spot for the olympics in 2012. Thats it how the FIBA handle it.

    So, the teams who have already qualified are: Russia, Spain, Lithuania (Europe), USA, Argentina (America), Australia (Oceania), Angola (Africa), Iran (Asia), China (host). Right? Which leaves 3 spots open....
    Now, for the qualifying tournament.... The Asian and African teams have no hope I think. As well as Canada... So it will be between the 4 euro teams (Greece, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia), Brazil, Puerto Rico and New Zealand... It will be a tough tournament for sure...

    You're mostly right but don't write off Canada.

    Nothing personal Hepcat
    But with your 2007 roster, you surely have no hope... With Nash (mostly) and Magloire in, things will change. But will they be in the Olympic qualifying tournament?

    New Zealand lost by 30 to China last month and they barely won japan(8th in asia this year) by 2 at the WBC last year......leb is a much better team where they always take China to close games at the asian championships and lose by a few points and beat Ven and Fra last yr who r both better teams than NZ.......

    OK. I admit that I haven't watched a New Zealand game since their best times (Loved the Maori dance ). Maybe you're right. We'll have to wait for the tournament (if there will be a tournament, strange things are heard...)
    Best of luck to your team, karim, but I believe that the Asia championships was your best shot...

    Can anyone confirm the tournament format that maka posted?

    In that format the 3rd place qualifier will have to play 5 games in the 7 days that the tournament runs. Teams with a strong bench will have an advantage.
