      it's described in the video that RepTdot posted. There will be a qualifying tournament that will be spread out over 1.5 years, from November 2017 to February 2019.

      16 teams enter, 7 teams qualify for the World Cup.

      I'm not sure how this will work in practice, because it's not just the NBA players that won't come for many of these games. Why would colleges for example let their kids go play in these tournaments in November or February?

      I read that some other pro leagues might take a break during these FIBA dates.
      thanks

      • "there is no better training or competition in the world in the summertime than playing for your country" I think Cory Joseph took a little shot at Wiggins & Staukas in the post game press conference lol

          A little emotion... no one likes to lose... and they coulda used a little help...France had more NBA guys than we did.

          Still though you don't know the pressure the NBA teams put on guys like Lyles and Murray to be in summer league on a team agenda... The memory of Paul George getting hurt so bad still resonates in the NBA thinking I would bet..

          CoJo took the team on his shoulders... built some more of that intangible leadership quality you like to see in your players.....

                    • Ridiculous that Canada, with the most players in the NBA after the US, can't crack a 12 team Olympic pool.

                      They've made progress but still a long way to go.

                      • Until this recent BS around qualifying I would have said we were a lock to make a run in the worlds in 19 and medal in the 2020 Olympics, but who the fuck knows now

                            To be fair, Venezuela looked exhausted (jet lag?). JV had 14 pts and it was his first game since the playoffs. Greivis was so bad, I couldn't believe he's an NBA player.

                              Thank Gawd we have Cojo being steady Eddie as a backup, with Greivis you just want to rip your hair out with frustration and his attitude didn't help.

                                Murray has an excuse, he just got drafted. KO and Nicholson I believe are both injured(?). So I can't really blame them for not participating.

                                But what the fuck is Wiggins excuse? Lyles? Stauskas?
                                What it do baybeeee!!
