Euroleague and FIBA expert Kristian Palotie joins from across the pond to discuss the FIBA World Cup so far. We hit on how this USA team differs from past outfits and what they’ve had to do differently so far. Then we review the tournament to date, including most disappointing and surprising teams and players, plus pick an MVP of the tournament so far. We also discuss issues with the formatting and refereeing and how FIBA’s rift with the rest of basketball has contributed, before looking at how the bracket should shape out the rest of the way. Finally, we discuss some of the differences between the NBA and international basketball and what changes we’d like to see made.
