From August 25th to September 10th, basketball fans around the globe are focused on Southeast Asia, with the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup, held in Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines determining the world’s strongest team for the next four years.
The US team is traditionally considered the firm favourite, but this does not mean other squads have no chance. The Americans first sent a team filled with NBA players to the tournament in 1994 but have since won only three out of the seven contests.
NBA stars can rely too much on their personal reputations and profiles and tend to underestimate their opponents. This is precisely what happened at the last FIBA Basketball World Cup, where the USA lost to France in the quarterfinals.
Steve Kerr, former Chicago Bulls star and now the Golden State Warriors and US national team Head Coach has tried to note his predecessors’ negative experiences and changed the principles for selecting his team.
There are no NBA superstars in the 2023 USA squad, and the bet is on ambitious youth. Kerr could have selected a full squad of players with multi-million-dollar NBA contracts, but there will be no players of Steph Curry or Kevin Durant’s level.
The Americans will be challenged by the current World Champions, Spain, plus the Slovenians with Dončić, the Canadians with Gilgeous-Alexander and the French with Gobert and Wembanyama. There several very strong teams in the tournament, so results promise to be highly unpredictable.
