Spain, the ‘Invincible Armada’ aiming for a second consecutive Basketball World Cup title, will play an evaluation match against the United States and Slovenia.
The Spanish Basketball Association is planning to hold a special evaluation match to celebrate its 100th anniversary. From August 11 to 13 (local time), the United States and Slovenia will be invited to Málaga to prepare for the 2023 International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Basketball World Cup.
Spain, as the winner of the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup, will challenge Brazil, Yugoslavia, and the United States to win the Basketball World Cup for the second time in a row. At the top of the 2022 FIBA EuroBasket, they are ranked #1 in the FIBA rankings, overtaking the United States. Despite the evaluation that it would go downhill after the retirement of the ‘Gasol Brothers’, Spain was still the best and is considered the strongest opponent to threaten the ‘Dream Team’ USA. 바카라
The United States and Slovenia, invited by Spain, are considered favorites to win the Basketball World Cup this year. In the case of the United States, after the worst performance ever at the Basketball World Cup four years ago, it succeeded in restoring its honor with a gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Slovenia is the best team in Europe led by NBA’s best player Luka Doncic. They play two warm-up matches against Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Greece before taking on Spain and the United States.
Meanwhile, Spain invites Argentina and Canada in Granada for three days from August 17 to 19 after the evaluation matches against the United States and Slovenia to prepare for the final round.
