Originally posted by monteirofIts hard to say since I am not familiar with all of the teams, but I think the four European teams are the most likely to earn a spot in the Olympics. Among those four European teams I see Germany and Greece securing the first two spots, and Croatia, Slovenia, and Brazil fighting for that last spot.
So who's going to fill the last 3 spots?
Group A: Brazil, Greece, Lebanon
Group B: Germany, Cape Verde, New Zealand
Group C: Canada, Korea, Slovenia
Group D: Cameroon, Croatia, Puerto Rico
2 teams of each group qualify to quarterfinals (Group A x Group B / Group C x Group D)
Already qualified teams: Argentina, Australia, Iran, Lithuania, Russia, Angola, China, Spain and USA.

Brazil is missing NBA players, we have a completely reformulated team with a new coach and some new players, but I liked what I have seen so far. Thiago Splitter is a very good center on both ends of the floor, probably the best big men of european basketball today. Point guard Marcelo Huertas is a rising star, have improved a lot in his last seasons for C ...[text shortened]... d Marcelo Machado is the team leader, very experienced player, deadly on the three points line.
