The 4-Down Podcast, Episode 13: International friendly
There’s not a lot going on regarding the NBA right now. That’s not fun. But luckily for us, this is one of those summers where international basketball is in the spotlight. The FIBA World Championships kick-off on Saturday morning in Turkey and a couple of players property of the San Antonio Spurs will take stage.
In this episode of the 4-Down Podcast, Os Davis from BallinEurope.com joins me to talk about international basketball. We cover both of the Spurs’ interests in the tournament, Tiago Splitter of Brazil and Nando De Colo of France, and the tournament itself.
I was curious why the FIBA World Championships don’t get the same amount of hype in America as the Olympics do, even though the Worlds are the basketball equivalent of the World Cup in soccer.
Os also gives podcast listeners a heads up on a handful of players to watch out for in the tournament and one international player to remember come next June’s NBA Draft.
