the document says the bronze medal match will be AFTER the gold medal match, wow ! this is new. probably never happened before anywhere.

Excellent chance that's a mistake I'd say :p

Very surprising indeed, but it seems this has been their plan from the beginning, they even have this time frame in their official schedule. Maybe they did this to adjust to certain markets...

I'm afraid not, the original schedule confirms that :yikes: wow

no mistakes here...it's known since a very long time ago...

 

it's an explicit request by the NBC (just like the Swimming Finals and the Skateboarding/BMX Freestyle events in the Japanese morning or the Figure Skating and Snowboard/Freestyle events in the Korean morning in Pyeongchang 3 years ago)...

It's not.  phelps beat me to it, but clearly it's for the benefit of American television to schedule it that way (maybe not an explicit request by NBC so much as FIBA knowing where their bread is buttered)

Yeah but those schedules were just...odd. Having the bronze medal match after the final means really nobody gives a flying fuck anymore (maybe outside some people in the two countries) instead of only a few people :lol: 

 

Weird request as well, I get USA wants the final at their best possible time, but that shouldn't be much of a problem while still having the bronze medal match before it.
