Despite every single problem in the last 20 years, and our best player being absent because he's a diva, 3rd place for Mexico is not bad at all :d

Argentina introduced some new players. They are not in the level of the golden generation ones but i think they will keep Argentina in a satisfied level in future world competitions

I agree

Gustavo Ayón, who plays with Real Madrid Basket and also played in the NBA... he was the team leader; but shortly before Olympic qualification tournament last year he started to behave like he was the only capable of making the team work, even managing to bring the arrogant a***ole that is our National Sports Comissioner to beg him to play; he had some goood points for not joining the team at that point, but after that, he's just using the lacm of proper planning to avoid being called to the team.

Philippines, Japan and Indonesia will host the FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2023! #FIBAWC

bad decision, i think it was latin america's turn. After all if you exclude philippines the other countries dont have any idea or interest in basketball. I think this was clearly a market decision if anyone considers the population of these countries. The same for china in 2019

I would expect USA to be given the 7th spot... btw what an amazing result for US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico... on the other hand, terrible performance by Mexico, Colombia and Cuba in particular.

 

Okay it has been confirmed the USA has received the 7th spot.
