There is not a doubt in my mind that Euro basketball is on at least a par with the NBA. I have seen talk about our being better next time and that we might be back on a par with them for the Olympics, but that will be a major problem. I think that the reason we lost was that their teams play together all the time, at least the nucleus does. But when we continue to send an all-star contingent instead of a team of players who play together most of the time, we will run into the same problem. And you can figure that no owner would let his team go over there as a unit because then he is endangering his team for the next NBA season. Look at what happened to Pau Gashol. And even if no injuries occur, the team members would have been playing almost year-round and would get no time off with their families or even to relax. That approach is dead before it gets off the ground. I wonder if the Euros will continue to rule the World's for the foreseeable future.
