    The tournament has definitely been surprising, and to be honest, the four teams remaining probably have the smallest amount of support from the Interbasket user base.

    Personally I would be cool with any of the four winning, as they each have a story, but I was curious how the board saw it.

    all teams in the semifinals are undefeated. IMO, the gold will probably get by the winner of the spain-australia match. france is the heavy favorites in their match against argentina. spain-australia will be a close one but i think the aussies will take this.

    Probably France. I don’t want Spain and Australia to get a cheapie without having to face Serbia or the US in a knockout game. But honestly it doesn’t bother me either way. Probably Argentina would bother me because they are a nice story but ball don’t lie they just don’t have the horses. I don’t think that will happen anyway.

    My preference:

    Argentina (great story)
    Australia (I like most of the guys and their playstyle)
    France (I dislike Collet but players are mostly cool)
    Spain (Ugh... I'd be happy for Rubio and Mr Chacho I guess)

    1.France to win it all. Could it get any better wining the World Cup and a W against team USA in their parth , some story.
    2. I also want Australia to get their first well deserved medal outside of their continent tournaments of course.
    3.And Argentina taking Bronze against Spain in a third place game. One more time for Luis Scola
    Lithuania

    Right now I'm leaning France to win, and Australia to at least medal. The French finally getting to the top of the podium and the Aussies finally getting some hardware.

    Argentina, I can only imagine how wildly they would celebrate and how unexpected it would be to everyone... But I already hate losing and this World Cup only brings "losing" emotions for me, so my realistic pick would be France. I will be cheering for Mathias Lessort haircut.

    I actually like Australia's game but I can't get out of my mind how their team acted like ex-convicts on parole when they played the Philippines in Manila during the WC Qualifiers.

    So, I'm rooting for España to beat them, and for La Roja to go all the way.

    This is why no one respects Fillipino fans. Your national team, players and fans are still carrying on like muppets. Your team should of took some selfies after they went 0-5 in the world cup.

    I'm going for Argentina being the biggest underdogs. If they win it all it wouldn't be a fluke either.

    Imagine Australia plays France in the final and beats them twice undisputed champions. If France wins it would somehow be arrogant going 1-1 in a series.

    Have faded a little but Spain have been the best country at teams sports the last 20 years. And they are proper Europeans so nothing against Spain winning.

    I only hope that France don't win it.

    1. Argentina
    2. Australia
    3. Spain
    4. France

    Did you really expect fans to just forget something that horrible? Or do you just simply have a certain standard for yourself, and another for those you think are beneath you?


    Well done on a 3-2 record by the way, and I mean it truly well. Two wins against European teams ain't bad at all.

    I am rooting for France. This is their moment. After decades of persisting it's time for them to win it all. I also hope Spain will reach the final. That would be a great match up. Another European final in a World cup.

    I think Australia always has an easy ride in these kind of tournaments. They have already qualified for the Olympics in the top 16 phase which is way too early. Argentina is not good enough and will loose to France.

    Argentina has less chances to win it all, but I'm rooting for them. Scola alone would be enough of a reason, one of the biggest NT freaks ever, but also the way played, some Campazzo magic, I loved it. Sp Argentina it is

    interesting... I thought they always get unlucky for one reason or the other, and that's why I'm rooting for them now.
    then Argentina of course for the obvious sympathy.

    So, French aren't proper Europeans? Who are proper Europeans?
