- bostonceltics - 03-17-2006

Shaq not in the US team. Im suprised though they'll probs still win England didnt even qualify british basketball is really in trouble


- TalkBasket - 03-18-2006

Many NBA stars don't play for the national teams including Shaq. They all are rich and that is the most important thing for them. There is no pride to play for your country.



England couldn't qualify because they play in European division B. It's not like in football when all teams of the continent are sorted in groups and they play qualification games. First of all there are two divisions in Europe A and B. Stronger teams play in A and weaker in B. Teams in division B fight for the qualification to division A. While teams from division A play for qualification to European Basketball Championships. Like in football they are sorted in groups. First 5 teams from EB qualifies to World Championships and 3 teams get wildcards from FIBA. The same goes with other continents.


- bostonceltics - 03-18-2006

ah ok thanks for clearing that up and its a shame most NBA players are driven purely by money nice to see some high schooler/college baller in their squad


- TalkBasket - 03-18-2006
