  • FIBA World Cup 2014 Preview

    This is actually the first FIBA World Cup ever. Sorta. From 1950 until 2010 this tournament was known as the FIBA World Championship, but FIBA decided to take a cue from its fubol hermanos, and alas, the FIBA World Cup was born. In the 16 previous editions of this tournament, the big winners were Yugoslavia with five gold medals, next up has been the United States with four gold medals, and the Soviet Union notched three wins back in the days when the Soviet Union was a thing. The United States is your defending champion, although 2010 Tournament MVP Kevin Durant is not on the American roster this year. We’re going to take a thumbnail look at each group and project those who will advance to the do-or-die tournament portion of The Cup. Remember, the first week (beginning Saturday, August 30th) will be round-robin group play, and the top 4 teams from each group will advance to a 16-team single elimination tournament beginning Saturday, September 6th. The final is Sunday, September 14th. We’ll keep you updated on the tourney and informed on how Andre Drummond and Team USA are faring right here on Or you could follow me on twitter @jakepistons.
