Of course, USA will have the group stage easy. I think it's a matter of who they're going to send to Spain since AFAIK they're trying to build a young solid team.

- Bron, Melo, and CP3 are ruled out for Team USA, but they will probably play in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

- South Korean gunner Kim Min-goo was hospitalized due to a drunk driving accident. This incident really hurt Korea's chances in the FIBA World Cup, since this guy, also known today as the "deadliest shooter in Asia", is a real huge part of his team. Just think "Korean Ray Allen". More news HERE.

- If Brazil has "The Blur" in Leandro Barbosa, the Philippines also has that in Jayson Castro William, currently the "best point guard in Asia". We'll see about that if Brazil and the Philippines will meet in the second round.

We WILL get something out of this, win or lose. It's a great honor already for the Philippines to play in the World Cup of Basketball. Playing against the best teams in the world is pretty much the only way to improve a national team.

Just in case you're asking, I'm rooting for Iran in Group A, Philippines in Group B, USA in Group C, and South Korea in Group D.

Team USA Updates:

- Paul George out due to horrible injury.
- Durant withdraws from the team.

Man, if every NBA team refuses to lend their stars to their respective international teams just because of PG24's injury, what would become of international basketball?
