    There is nothing on the USA yet, neither on the Argentina team. We have to see if Virgin Islands Raja Bell want to play this tournament

    Default Uruguay

    The Uruguayans always send an A-grade squad of course which features a couple of players who play in Europe such as former NBA big man Estaban Batista in Israel for Euroleague power house Maccabi Electra Tel-Aviv, sharp shooter Nicolas Mazzarino of Tisettanta Cantu (Italy) or the athletic Mauricio Aguiar of Livorno (Italy). A couple of Uruguayans also have some NCAA experience such as Leandro Garcia Morales who plays as an import in Venezuela (Cocodrilos de Caracas) during the off-season.

    The Uruguayans played quite well in the last FIBA Americas coming up short of a spot in the FIBA Olympic Qualification round to Canada. Batista was a monster for the "Celeste" with averages of 20ppg and tournament leading 14rpg and hopes to have another great tournament if Uruguay is to progress.

    I believe that to enhance the chances of my adopted country is for the Uruguayan basketball players to make use of their dual citizenship (many Uruguayans have either a Spanish or Italian passport due to the mass immigration that occured in the early part of the 20th century from Europe to the River Plate countries - Argentina & Uruguay) and play overseas in Europe even if they are playing in the lower division. The "Celeste" do have a excellent one-two punch in the interior presence of Batista and the 3 point shooting of Mazzarino however, one or two more players must step up and provide greater support for these two. I noticed that the only time when the Uruguayans were able to win their games during the Pan-American Tournament or the FIBA-Americas was if both Mazzarino and Batista had an excellent game. However, once the oppossing team shut down one, Uruguay would struggle on offense and thus would affect their confidence on the defensive end as well. This reminds me of the Australian team during the 90s. Though they were successful they relied a lot on Andrew Gaze and Shane Heal. Like Uruguay, once one was shut down, the Boomers would immensely struggle on the offensive end.

    Default Uruguay's future

    I forgot to mention about Jason Granger who is a Uruguayan (father's African American and his mother's Uruguayan) that plays in Spain's Estudiantes. He's a 6'4" point guard who plays more like a point forward according to "17 Deportes" (a versatile point who does a little of everything). However, according to "El Pais" of Uruguay his style of play is more leaning towards Michael Jordan's style. In the last FIBA-Americas campaign the 18 year old was included in the national team's training squad however, he was later cut in the 2nd stage of selection. I believe that if Uruguay is to look ahead they should do what many national squads do and add in a youngster (just like Australia's Patty Mills or Spain's Ricky Rubio) to allow exposure to that level of play.

    Default BAd News for the dominican team

    The coach of the dominican nt has just quit
    I'm gonna post this in spanish cuz I couldn't find it in english nor did I have time to traslate it. SORRY TO MY ANGLOS FRIENDS:

    RENUNCIA A SU CARGO EL COACH SCOTT ROTH.

    El dirigente del equipo masculino de baloncesto de República Dominicana, Scott Roth declaró que no regresará el próximo año como jefe principal del quinteto que competirá en el Torneo Premundial 2009, alegando que estará de “vacaciones familiares” para esa fecha.

    “El contrato entre la Federación Dominicana de Baloncesto (Fedombal) y yo terminó con la conclusión de este campeonato”, dijo Roth muy molesto, luego que el país obtuviera la presea bronceada del evento.

    “El objetivo se ha cumplido: clasificar al Premundial 2009”, dijo.
    “No estamos contentos con un bronce, pero esa es la medalla que hemos ganado y debemos sentirnos orgullosos”, aclaró. Scott dijo que el baloncesto dominicano ha mejorado un mundo y seguirá mejorando cada día.

    Default Rick Apodaca PUERTO RICAN TEAM

    Why the puerto rican never bring Rick Apodaca to internatinal tournaments and when they do, they don't use him, at least not as he is supposed to.

    I think Puerto Rico should first give the respect that Rick Apodaca desreves and 2th kiss his aZZZZ
    hi is a terrific playA

    USA as I write before somewhere, they are not going to sent a NBA players to the Tournament of America because they are already in thanks to their gold medal in Beijin.

    Puerto Rico will also have Alex Falcon in their pre squad for next year tournament.

    This is for Luuij-ss, Rick Apodaca is an excellent player with great potential but for some reason, lately he has not been playing as expected.

    From what i saw from Ricky Soliver in nancy, he is far from having the level at the point. I would even prefer him Ricardo or Jeff Greer for that place even if both of them are not made for that place.

    Risky soliver is more of a combo guard Stephon Mabury-like type of player That is a point guard but has as a first option himself, and the to pass the ball as seconed option.

    He reminds me of The tiny guy from puerto rico that won the MVP in the centrobasket

    and I don't think Neirther Ricky or Jeff or has a spot as a point in this team, because the team scares of SF and REAL SG, and besides, with sammy mejia who is a 6'6 point guard wiht a lot of talent that got a chance to play in the nba, The won be neede it there, the point is to crowded with Ronald raon a 3-pointer specialist, DAMIEN MCSWINE the dominican league MVP a guy who despite his age ih very experienced and maybe even edgar sosa
    could made the team and with luis flores being the sixth man of the team, he'll be playing the point at times.

    It's waaaaaaaaaay too early to think about Argentinean team. First of all, we have no coach since Hernández's contract is over, and his replacement won't be decided until next year. Second of all, it's a mystery how many of its NBA players will be available for it (Ginóbili and Oberto surely won't). And third, Argentina would surely get a FIBA invitation for the World Championship if they don't qualify (like Puerto Rico in 2006), so that may induce a not-so powerful lineup for this event, without most of the big names.

    I can think of these:

    PG
    ¿Pablo Prigioni?
    Antonio Porta
    Luis Cequeira
    Maximiliano Stanic
    Nicolás Gianella

    SG
    ¿Carlos Delfino?
    Paolo Quinteros
    Javier Bulfoni
    Julio Mázzaro
    Diego García
    Matías Lescano

    SF
    ¿Andrés Nocioni?
    ¿Walter Herrmann?
    Hernán Jasen
    Roberto Gabini
    Federico Kammerichs
    Matías Sandes
    Marcos Mata

    PF
    ¿Luis Scola?
    Leonardo Mainoldi
    Leonardo Gutiérrez
    Diego Lo Grippo
    Diego Guaita
    Fabricio Vay

    C
    Román González
    Juan Pedro Gutiérrez
    ¿Robert Battle?
    Damián Tintorelli
    Pedro Calderón
