Top 2 from each pool, plus 2 of the 3 3rd placed teams will go through to 1/4 finals.

Who qualifies into our group will depend a lot on what NBA players are available for the qualifiers. It might not be Serbia and Croatia who sneak through.

But either way, this could be quite a tough group for the Boomers. If a Russia or Brazil or another 2 teams of that level come into our group that makes things a bit prickly.

Somehow we always find ourselves in groups packed with superpowers. The bad thing about that is it takes away all chance to ease into a tournament. We saw how that ended for us in 2019 - we will need depth this time.

We're lucky to have some of the most dedicated guys in world basketball when it comes to this cause, guys who will play the Olympics tired, immediately off the back of an NBA playoff run. Most teams wont have that luxury.

Anyway, let's get it on!

Of simmo gets traded to a rubbish team, he won't be tired going into Olympics. Jingles would be only one expected to make a deep playoff run playing reasonable minutes.
