FIBA World Cup Power Ranking, 1st in the US, 6th in Spain… 1st place in Asia?


The United States, which is aiming to regain the summit, has risen to the top of the power rankings.

FIBA (International Basketball Federation) selected the 2023 FIBA ​​Men’s Basketball World Cup power rankings on its official website on the 13th (Korean time). This time, the power rankings were dealt with with each team’s noteworthy players, adding to the interest.

The United States, which had lost its pride by staying in 7th place in the 2019 competition, was ranked first. FIBA selected Jaylen Brunson (New York) as a player to watch in the United States, who is aiming for a sixth championship in his career.

FIBA said, “We will have a great summer together with the United States. Brunson, who coach Steve Kerr is looking forward to, has experience being selected as the MVP at the 2015 U19 World Cup. Brunson, who has already shown leadership, is 26 years old but is the most experienced player in the country. He also showed an impressive appearance in the first evaluation match (Puerto Rico), which was played after the recent national team was called up.”

France ranked second after the United States, and Brunson’s New York Knicks teammate Evan Fournier took notice. “Fornier is ready to become the greatest player ever. He will enter the competition with more enthusiasm than ever. He has won silver and bronze medals at the EuroBasket, two bronze medals at the World Cup and a silver medal at the Olympics. Now all that remains is the brightest color.” That was FIBA’s explanation.

Australia, led by Patty Mills, is ranked third, the highest among Asian countries. FIBA said of Australia, “Mills leads and he has Joe Ingles at his side. It is difficult to imagine Australia without them. There is also an overestimation of young players such as Josh Giedy, but Australia will be able to face the tournament with confidence.”

Slovenia and Germany, led by Luka Doncic, ranked 4th and 5th, respectively, while defending champion and FIBA ​​ranking No. 1 Spain stayed in 6th place. This is because Ricky Rubio, the MVP of the last tournament, suddenly announced his absence due to mental health recovery.

FIBA said, “The only reason Spain’s power rankings are low is because the MVP of the last tournament is not with them. Rubio was one of the greatest players in FIBA ​​competition. I look forward to seeing him return to the national team one day. Of course, Spain won without Rubio in their match against Slovenia on the 12th. That’s why some people think Spain’s power rankings are too low.”메이저사이트

Canada, Italy, Serbia and the Dominican Republic also made it to the top 10. Excluding Australia, which was transferred, Asia’s No. 1 was China, which ranked 19th, and the player FIBA ​​paid attention to was Kyle Anderson. NBA leaguer Anderson, recently naturalized as a Chinese citizen, plays under the name Lee Kaier. “Anderson is a veteran who has played more than 600 games in the regular league and playoffs in the NBA. FIBA explained that he would be happy to see him playing for the Chinese national team.

In addition, the Philippines, where Jordan Clarkson joined, ranked 20th, and Japan, where Rui Hachimura did not participate, ranked 22nd. Of the 32 teams, Côte d’Ivoire ranked last.

Meanwhile, the tournament, co-hosted by the Philippines, Indonesia and Japan, will run from the 25th to September 10th.
