    2016 zero chance; 2020 is a long shot as well; just look at how talented the current Spanish team is (immediate top contender if they were an nba team) and they have trouble being a serious threat.
    And I have some issues with this. They have trouble being a threat, even more so in the last Games, because they have almost ZERO athleticism that compares to the US, espeically on the wings. This would be a problem in the NBA even, as guys like Rudy (strength) and JC Navarro(size/athleticism) washed out. Imagine Memphis with defensively weak perimeter play...that is pretty close to what Spain would be in the NBA, IMO.

    This will not be a problem for Canada. They will be the only team with the combination of talent and athleticism that has a chance against the US. Again, they project to have much better tools and talent to matchup against the US than probably any team I've ever seen (since NBAers were allowed to compete), in my opinion.
