Defending Champions of FIBA World Cup –
Spain is the defending champion of the FIBA world cup and this time also Spain looks tremendous this year too as their star player Ricky Rubio was added to the squad. Last year Spain recorded almost 84.9 ppg. Spain also has the quality center like Willy Hernangomez (NBA player of NOP)
Ruling Champions of FIBA World Cup-
The next team which we have to look out for is the USA,(5-time world champions) who are totally lethal in their play but unfortunately they didn’t win the last title but the US have the great potential to win this. Well the NBA stars will not participate in this but there are such players who can play an important role to win the world cup. They will get the experience of Brandon Ingram, Jalen Brunson, and Tyrese Halliburton who are top-notch in their recent performance with lots of triples and doubles in their current game.
Players To Watch Out For in FIBA World Cup-
#1-Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks, Slovenia)
#2-Anthony Edwards (Minnesota Timberwolves, Team USA)
#3 -Rudy Gobert (Minnesota Timberwolves, France)
#4- Lauri Markkanen ( Uttah Jazz, Finland)
#5- Dennis Schroder (Toronto Raptors, Germany)
Well, there is also less probability of playing the two big stars of basketball Nikola Jokic & Giannis Antetekoumpo. If they will play they will make the most significant difference in the game.
