Not sure if this was brought up anywhere, but the Women's world cup has been reduced to 12 teams moving forward.

FIBA did not comment on it, except saying it will give teams more opportunities, which ofc is not true lol

Main consequence of all the boycotts yesterday?     Much bigger audience for President Trump’s big speech last night!     https://admin.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/08/own_goal_the_nb

If this happened after all games, I’d be watching 100% more basketball.

EuroBasket and AmeriCup are now scheduled for 2022, but no big change for Asia and Africa

 

which means teams like Iran have to play the continental Championships right after the Olympics ! there are only 9 days gap between those 2 events, :yikes: probably one extra week for teams being eliminated in the first round .

Donar Groningen, Dutch champion three times in the past five seasons, has a new coach: Ivan Rudez of Croatia. @dcro @crovitlaci Is he any good? :p Also, he apparently used to be national team head coach for....Slovakia :d @hckosice

 

 

I thought Rudež sounded familiar, and yes, apparently his brother Damjan played on the NT. :p

 

Other than that, I don't know much (or anything, rather).
