Is it pretty much confirmed that Lebron won't be coming?

You can't confirm player availability a year out.

I think Lebron is unlikely but his move to LA increased the chances, since with Cleveland he would probably have played more games and minutes.

When do they have to name the team? If upcoming free agents have to confirm availability before signing contracts, that would rule out a few big names.

If they take 12 of: Barnes, Beal, Booker, Conley, DeRozan, Drummond, Gordon, Griffin, Harris, Jordan, Love, Lowry, McCollum, Middleton, Thomas and Turner, I think they would drop a game to the Boomers. They'd probably still go into the World Cup as favourites, but you'd take the field for the first time in a long time.

However, I think we see at least Davis, Westbrook, Oladipo, Wall and Lillard (not free agents, don't have crazy playoff workloads year after year). And that's probably enough for them to win it.

I actually expect very competitive and relatively close games. This Australian team has been together for a long time now, and they will be adding some very nice pieces. You can bet the boys will be absolutely geared up and ready to pull off a miracle, and I would absolutely not count them out.

As for Lebron James, there's no way to know. But I do hope we get him plus a few other really big names. Apparently the fact that the Cup is in China means that NBA players have a vested cash interest in playing.

Anyone know how to go about getting tickets to the actual World Cup? Was deadset on going to the Vic games, but I have a mate living in Beijing I can stay with so may as well go to the big dance, prob work out cheaper too from Perth...

I imagine it would be near-impossible to get tickets for USA games in China - the scalping will be off the chain.

Should be pretty easy to get Boomers pool game tickets though!

Thats what it comes down too I guess, going to all the Boomers games and missing out on a US game, or seeing an average US lineup come to Oz and pay ridiculous prices for it...if it's ballot based, I guess I get an equal chance (albeit millions of chinese) of snagging at least 1 USA game.

The US team that comes to Australia will be the same as the one that goes to China, these are literally both teams last tune up games.

I'd argue that a couple of the super-duper stars would prob rest or go wait in China to be honest. Still would be getting a fairly decent team.

Decided I'm going to get tickets to the Oz games anyway, and if I can get tickets to the Beijing games then I'll sell my Oz tickets.

Anon - team can only be 12 players not 15! LOL

It will be the exact same USA and Boomers teams that will play at the FIBA World Cup.

Remember that Popovich is the coach now who all the players respect. I think the team will have not many opt outs.

It's not like players didn't respect Coach K - in fact a lot of Duke's success with one and dones comes from his pitch of having a great relationship with NBA superstars from the Team USA gig.

Players opt out because the super teams have meant that an assortment of the top tier guys have been playing 100-game NBA seasons for 3, 4, 5 years in a row and they can't afford to play a full summer of basketball as well. This is why I think Lebron and the Warriors guys are unlikely. But China is the x-factor that can't be accounted for, because there's no precedent as to what earning potential will be available to players who choose to participate and are selected.

Yes but Coach Pop even more so than Coach K due to being in the NBA.

Yes, China is the X-factor. I expect most to make it down here due to the hosts.

Ticket master is pathetic! I've been trying to buy tickets since the pre sale open and it keeps coming up with errors after seats are selected.
