world cup?

Yeah they changed the World Championship to the World Cup cuz Soccer/Futbol.

The tourney to qualify has been renamed too I think but I used to remember it as the Tourney of Americas or something.

fiba americas tournament is pretty weak, so they should qualify. canada is the biggest threat if they have their nba guys. pr, domincan r, and mexico could somewhat make it competitive.

I got to say im a little more interested in watching this now than I would have been for NBA'ers.

should be noted that it will be during the nba season and I really doubt teams are going to let their players go so d-league guys should be good enough to get a qualification.

It being during the season is exactly why it's D leaguers and same reason why Pop isn't coaching and their going to find a new coach for qualification. But I honestly think it's more interesting this way. I wish we'd go back to sending college kids.
