Wait, so can someone please explain to me why the US and Japan are playing in the qualification tournaments? This makes absolutely no sense to me

The system was designed to give more meaningful International matches to all teams going to the Olympics in 2020. That’s why every teams, even Japan and the US, are participating in the final qualification tournament.

this qualification system is just a farce (the 3X3 B'Ball system instead is a pure cheat)...
