17th FIBA Basketball World Cup 2014 Barcelona-Spain • 17ª Copa d' Mundo de Baloncesto FIBA 2014 Barcelona-España

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Prepare for a great time in Bilbao


Jeff Taylor's Eurovision
It doesn't matter where you're planning on watching Preliminary Round games in in Spain this summer at the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

There should be plenty of suspense and intrigue in the cities of Granada, Seville, Bilbao and Gran Canaria.

I love the opening round in this tournament that comes around every four years.
No matter where you are, there will be times when you're on the edge of your seat, just as Greece and Australia fans were eight years ago in a Hamamatsu classic.
Remember that game?

With the game knotted, Theo Papaloukas came up with a steal, passed ahead to Nikos Zisis and he buried a long three pointer or a 72-69 win.

In Sapporo that same year, Slovenia fans will remember an agonizing, last-second Group D defeat to China which happened when Wang Shipeng hit a very, very long three-pointer at the buzzer.

Jonas Kazlauskas, the China coach at the time, was so happy I thought he was going to do a jig.

There was yet another unforgettable Preliminary Round game that year in Hiroshima, a 108-103 triple overtime triumph for Germany over Angola.

Dirk Nowitzki hit a crazy three-pointer at the buzzer to force the second overtime and then sank two free-throws to force the third. The greatest player in his country's history finished with 47 points.

These moments make the hair on the back of my neck stand up, and they happened so long ago.

Most people will agree that Group C, in Hamamatsu, was the most competitive pool that year with an unheralded Turkey, Lithuania, Brazil and Qatar also involved. It was such a tough pool that Brazil didn't survive, despite the presence of Leandro Barbosa, Anderson Varejao, Tiago Splitter, Marcelo Machado, Marcelo Huertas, Alex Garcia and Guilherme.

The Preliminary Round games that stand out for me in 2010 were the USA's escape act against Brazil in Istanbul and Germany's Jan Jagla-fueled 82-81 upset of Serbia in Kayseri.

Jagla hit a memorable three-pointer in overtime, one in which he was falling out of bounds.

So where are the Preliminary Round nail-biters likely to happen this summer?

My guess is that most will happen in Bilbao.

This is the Preliminary Round venue that fascinates me.

The USA will win the pool, Group C, as long as Kevin Durant is healthy and hungry. I have no doubt that Durant, the MVP back in 2010, will be both.

There is not much to separate the other teams in the pool.

New Zealand, Turkey, Ukraine, the Dominican Republic and Finland each have realistic hopes of making it to the Last 16.

There is such a great balance to this group that each of these teams could go 0-5 and crash out of the tournament.

This happened to a good Canada team four years ago in Izmir.

The Turks and Tall Blacks will be dangerous.

They already have a taste of success at this level.

The Kiwis made it to the Semi-Finals of the 2002 FIBA World Championship and they should have one heck of a team in Bilbao, one with a mixture of experience and rising stars.

"I'm really looking forward to this one with the caliber of players we have," said Mika Vukona, a scrappy, hustling forward, of the Tall Blacks.

"A lot of young guys who were there or close to making the team in 2010 are now seasoned veterans.

"With that kind of experience, it goes a long way and is really promising."

Thomas Abercrombie, who played in 2010, has been shooting the ball lights out from three-point range in the Australia NBL for the New Zealand Breakers.

Tai Webster, the playmaker in the Tall Blacks' 2012 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT) squad while still in high school, is a dazzling freshman point guard for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Also in American college basketball is Isaac Fotu, a sophomore power forward of the Hawaii Rainbows.

Webster and Fotu have played FIBA 3x3 together and can be a dynamic duo at Spain 2014.

The biggest and potentially most important newcomer of all is Steven Adams, the 20-year-old center of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

There are two questions.

Does he want to play, and do the Thunder want him to play?

If he wants to play, he's not telling the world about it right now.

Adams has a been a pleasant surprise this season after leaving Pittsburgh following his freshman year.

Will the Thunder want him to rest, and have him play in the Summer League, or might they encourage him to really test his skills on the biggest international basketball stage of all? Let's hope they opt for the latter.

We simply don't know what to expect from Turkey.

They don't have a coach and they seem to be running short on confidence which is incredible when considering this is the national team that made it to the 2010 Final.

The last time Turkey got a wild card, back in 2006, they made it to the Quarter-Finals.

Finland are, for my money, the best story in international basketball right now.

In the grand scheme of things, they are minnows.

But they are organized, passionate and tremendous shooters.

This is a team that also has a real connection with its fans.

How else can you explain their decision, during the opening group phase of last year’s EuroBasket in Koper, to effectively have a huge party with their supporters.

It was Finn-tastic!

And you know what else? These guys wanted to play the United States, and they will in Group C.

"This is what every player is dreaming about, to play against the best players," Finland coach Henrik Dettmann told me.

"This is what the national team is about.

"This is what sport is about."

There are going to be a lot of Finland fans in Bilbao.

"The basketball hype (in Finland) is incredible," Dettmann said.

"The opportunity to play to USA is something special."

It's worth remembering that the Finns won in the Additional Qualifying Round to make it to EuroBasket 2011, and then advanced from the first round.

After qualifying for EuroBasket 2013, they beat Turkey, Sweden, Russia and Greece to advance.

In their last game, against hosts Slovenia, Finland rolled to a 92-76 triumph, drilling 17 of 32 attempts from three-point range to silence a packed Ljubljana arena in the process.

"This shows that if you dream, if you work, your dreams can come true," Dettmann said.

Ukraine had something really special last year under coach Mike Fratello and should be extremely tough competitors again, and the Dominican Republic have been knocking at the door of reaching a major tournament for the past several years.

The fact that they have made it to the World Cup without the help of Al Horford suggests they are going to be dangerous.

Horford has begun his rehabilitation after suffering another pectoral injury and should be in the line-up when then Dominicans go into battle.

If I'm horribly wrong and the games are blowouts, rest assured you’ll still have a rewarding visit to Bilbao.

This is a wonderful, beautiful city that is home to the Guggenheim Museum.

It has the sort of food and cider that makes my mouth water just thinking about it.


Until next week, think pinchos!

17th FIBA Basketball World Cup 2014 Barcelona-Spain • 17ª Copa d' Mundo de Baloncesto FIBA 2014 Barcelona-España

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

'Crafty' foreigners prepare for another attempt against USA
at FIBA Basketball World Cup

It's been almost eight years since Greece upset the United States, 101-95, at the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan.

I wonder if another seismic shock like that is going to happen at this summer's FIBA Basketball World Cup?

For me, the Greece win over the United States is the most important result in international basketball in the last couple of decades.

In 2005, Greece had also won a EuroBasket Semi-Final that shook up the hoops world, a 67-66 come-from-behind triumph over France, before capturing the title.

When they knocked off the Americans, the result confirmed Greece's status as one of the top teams in the sport.

Some might say it made Spain's path to glory a little easier.

Instead of taking on the United States, a country that had ended their Olympic run in 2004 in the Quarter-Finals, Spain played Greece in the championship game and rolled to a 70-47 victory.

We're still scratching our heads and wondering why Greece executed to near perfection against the USA but then froze on the big stage a couple of days later.

Perhaps more than anything, the Greek win helped the Americans.

It sharpened Team USA's focus.

The Americans haven't lost since 2006, winning Olympic titles in Beijing and London and a world championship in Turkey.

The sting of defeat to Greece was so bad that the American players still feel it.

"I can recall that game like it was yesterday," Dwight Howard said to FIBA at the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans.

"They ran one play that we couldn't stop, a high pick-and-roll.

"They either got Baby Shaq (Sofoklis Schortsanitis) in the paint for a lay-up or (Vassilis) Spanoulis coming off (a screen) for a three.


Uncontainable Sofoklis Schortsanitis (Greek: Σοφοκλής Σχορτσανίτης) (born June 22, 1985) is a Greek Cameroonian professional basketball player for Maccabi Tel Aviv B.C. of the Ligat HaAl. Listed at 2.06 m (6 ft 9 in) and 156.5 kg (345 lb), he was born in Tiko, Cameroon, to a Greek father and a Cameroonian mother. An All-Euroleague First Team selection in 2011,

"It was a tough game for us, but we learned a lot."

Howard, who hasn't played for the USA since winning a gold medal in 2008, wants to play at this year's FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.

He's in the 28-man USA Basketball pool of players for the next three years and is a good bet to be with the team in Bilbao.

Howard wasn't the only person to recall that defeat in New Orleans.

Jerry Colangelo, the managing director of the senior national team and the USA Basketball chairman, also spoke about the game in his interview with FIBA.

"We paid our dues," he said.

"We lost our only game, our only blemish on our record of 62-1.

"From that point on, we've been undefeated. We've learned."

What they learned is that in international basketball, teams that have continuity, savvy and talent are dangerous.

That would be an apt description for a lot of teams in the sport, like Brazil, who very nearly stunned the USA in the 2010 Preliminary Round before losing, 70-68.

Marcelinho Huertas and Tiago Splitter know each other's game inside and out because of their time together with Brazil and formerly Baskonia in Vitoria, Spain, and it was evident in that clash.

Spain, Lithuania and Argentina have also proved over the years that they have a good mix of talent, smarts and continuity to give the USA fits.

"They're crafty overseas, they do a lot of different things on the floor," Howard said.

"The way they play defense in the post, the way they box out - all that stuff is a little bit different so I learned some tricks from some of the guys overseas."

While it's too early to know all 12 names on the USA FIBA Basketball World Cup roster, we can safely say they are going to have and extremely talented team.

They will be awesome.

It's going to be interesting to see which teams, if any, are going to cause them problems this year.


I predict there will be at least one close call, if not two or three...

17th FIBA Basketball World Cup 2014 Barcelona-Spain • 17ª Copa d' Mundo de Baloncesto FIBA 2014 Barcelona-España

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Drum roll, please…


Coaches and players have different attitudes when it comes to draws for major basketball tournaments.

Some coaches keep their fingers crossed and hope to avoid the giants, longing for an easy path to the knockout stages of the tournament, while others adopt a "let's take on the world" approach.

A great example of the latter happened at the draw for EuroBasket 2013.

Finland fell into a 'group of death' with Greece, Turkey, Russia, Italy and Sweden.

Only three teams would advance from that pool, Group D, and most assumed it would be the Greeks, Turks and Russians.

Instead of moaning and throwing in the towel, the Finnish coach Henrik Dettmann embraced the challenge.

He considered the clashes as a great opportunity for basketball in his country.

Finland then went out and whipped Turkey and Sweden, fell to Italy, edged Russia and beat Greece.

The Finns captured the imagination of the public back home with their courage, style of play and confident mindset.

They didn't make it to the Quarter-Finals, but did sign off from the EuroBasket with a 92-76 beatdown of hosts Slovenia in front of a packed Ljubljana arena.

There have been 'groups of death' at FIBA World Championships.

The one that springs to mind vividly, as if it was played yesterday, was Group C in Japan at the 2006 FIBA World Championship, which to my reckoning stands as the greatest international basketball event of all time.

I was fortunate enough to be working at the tournament in Hamamatsu to see all of those games, and we watched some real humdingers.

The pool consisted of then European champions Greece, Lithuania, Australia, Brazil, Qatar and one of the four wild cards, Turkey.

Qatar were the only side that was overmatched, although they did make things very interesting against Greece on the opening night.

Just over two minutes into the second quarter and the huge underdogs Qatar had a 28-12 lead.

A Nikos Zisis lay-up triggered a 24-3 run for Greece at the end of the first half, though, and they went on to prevail, 84-64.

There were plenty of Greek dramas that summer.

Panagiotis Giannakis’ team edged Lithuania, 81-76, then scraped a 72-69 victory over Australia with a Zisis three-pointer right before the end.

Zisis was then lost for the tournament after being hit the face by Anderson Varejao of Brazil (the two met in the summer of 2012 before a friendly between the teams in Brazil and laid the matter to rest) in the next game and finally Greece won a battle of unbeatens against a surprising Turkey that had the emerging star Ersan Ilyasova.

Few would have expected Brazil to crash out of the tournament because they had Leandro Barbosa, Varejao, Marcelo Machado, Marcelinho Huertas and Tiago Splitter, but in Japan, the South Americans only beat Qatar.

They had narrow defeats to Australia, Turkey and Lithuania.


Hakeem Abdul 'The Dream' Olajuwon' (born January 21, 1963) is a retired Nigerian-American professional basketball player. From 1984 to 2002, he played the center position in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for the Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors. He led the Rockets to back-to-back NBA championships in 1994 and 1995. In 2008, he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Listed at 7 ft 0 in (2.13 m) (but closer to 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m) by his own admission), Olajuwon is considered one of the greatest centers ever to play the game. In this photograph from RUGU presented by #eBAStatsGroup #BasketballStatistics Analysis .

Greece would go on to pull off the most memorable win in World Championship history, a 101-95 upset of the United States in the Semi-Finals, before crashing to a Pau Gasol-less Spain in the title game. Gasol got hurt in the Semi-Final triumph over Argentina and wasn’t available but Spain thrashed their opponents, 70-47.

Yes, a Greek tragedy.

For the 2010 FIBA World Championship, Turkey had a terrific draw ceremony in Istanbul.

The legendary Hakeem Olajuwon was among the guests.

Turkey staged an excellent tournament but there was some star power missing at the event.

Pau Gasol, Manu Ginobili (Argentina), Tony Parker (France), Andrew Bogut (Australia) and Dirk Nowitzki (Germany) were among the big names not to play.

The way things turned out that summer, Group D was probably the toughest of the pools with Spain, France, New Zealand, Lithuania, Canada and Lebanon.

The Canadians, racked by injuries, lost all five of their games and didn’t advance along with the Lebanese.

Kevin Durant stole the show in Turkey, earning the honor of tournament MVP, and Lithuania made their country proud by riding a wild card all the way to the bronze medal.

Milos Teodosic of Serbia gave us the most memorable play in that tournament, a very long three-pointer at the buzzer to stun Spain in the Quarter-Finals.

There will be too many unknowns when the draw is made on Monday to know which teams may or may not have benefitted by falling into certain groups.

A lot can happen between before 30 August, when the tournament tips off.

Players can get hurt and coaches may be fired.

There may be a player out there that we don’t about who is going to earn a spot on his national team and take the FIBA Basketball World Cup by storm.

I expected a big buzz in Barcelona for the draw ceremony...

Here is a look at the groupings and where in Spain they will be playing the preliminary rounds. The final rounds will take place in Madrid and Barcelona.

GROUP A (Granada): Spain, Egypt, Iran, Serbia, Brazil, France

GROUP B (Seville): Argentina, Senegal, Philippines, Croatia, Puerto Rico, Greece

GROUP C (Bilbao): USA, Finland, New Zealand, Ukraine, Dominican Republic, Turkey

GROUP D (Gran Canaria): Lithuania, Angola, Korea, Slovenia, Mexico, Australia.


Let the fun to begin...
