The Basketball Thread

Post by [IB]Lance on Thu Sep 11, 2014 2:07 pm

World cup semi-finals:
USA-Lithuania
Serbia-France

Thoughts?

I think we can beat France after destroying Brazil, the momentum has really gone up since the group stages, Greece and Brazil went out easily against us, I expected Spain in the semis against us but France is even better, I'm feeling we got this.

USA - Lithuania.
A very low chance, i'll stay a realist on this one.
BUT, if we actually do beat them. I can only expect on what's gonna go down here lmfao defeating them would be a huge thing here.

Simply no one can touch USAB.
Look at them rolling, even without players like Kobe, KD, Griffin, Howard, LeBron, Paul, Westbrook..... I mean srsly. I can only say I hope I will never see them play against the Bosnian BBall team. Damn.

I think it will be USA - Serbia in the finals... Because i think it was only luck that brought France trough the quarter-final.. Spain was the absolute favorite there.

So USA - Serbia in the final match.. and no need to say who's gonna win eh?

Uhm.. Believe me, it's not..

Nobody would be happier than me if Bosnia OR Croatia OR Serbia won something like that.
But let's be real.. USAB is a machine that is mowing down everything that is coming their way..

I know they are dominant even with their C team without almost any top NBA stars, but you just can't write off a team in a final before the match even started. If they do win (most likely) I would still be proud it's an immense achievement to reach the finals with this young team.

Also respect for France, real fair-play, they weren't provoking or doing anything even when they were trailing by 18 points. Unlike some other teams like Spain..

Batum is a beast, he delivered big time in this game, everything he fired went in, unbelievable. He was their only threat alongside Diaw.

Milos Teodosic is the definition of a 3 quarter player.

Gratz to USAB, and to Serbia for 2nd place!

I didn't expect us to win, I even said they are most likely to win and it happened. Well being the 2nd in the world it's still great and at least we are team that scored most points against USA in this tournament.

Everyone knows that the US is like the Mesiah of basketball. Everyone else, no offense, is playing for second place or third behind France, who usually comes in second.

Except we beat USA in 2002 final in front of their home fans.

They are not aliens you know, they are just better.

And France was never second in a world cup, in fact this is their first medal and it's bronze.

lmfao no.
USA most of the time used to beat us only by a little difference of points, this time, in this world cup, we weren't so lucky though.
For a country like us, competing well against a team like that, it's big. We have never lost dry to them. We're in 4th position in the whole world, out of the strongest teams according to the world cup. It's big for us, so.
Don't underestimate another team just because it's not called USA or whatever.

^u guys lost to bosnia in eurobasket ming

And come on guys just accept the fact that USAB is unbeatable right now..
Last few games they won everytime with +25 points difference. And +37 in the finals? With their C team? Imagine Paul, Griffin, Howard, Durant, Kobe, LeBron, George, Westbrook and co. playing....
