World Cup 2014: United States


The eternal candidate to win the title, United States, has an enormous responsibility to defend the World Cup crown obtained four years before in Turkey. With the well-known Mike Krzyzewski as coach, the American machine will look for its fifth award in the table (in order to match the already dissolved Yugoslavia) as they were champions in 1954, 1986, 1994 and 2010.

The current number one in the international ranking qualified the World Cup as the 2012 Olympic champions, an important issue that evidences how much the superpower USA represents in basketball and that puts them as the role model for the other squads.

As usual in this kind of tournaments, they will be who lead the Group C with Finland, Turkey, New Zealand, Dominican Republic and Ukraine. On Saturday, August 30, they will make presentation at the event against the first of the above. The venue is in Bilbao, and the stadium, the magnificent Bizkaia Arena.

A setback happened a few days ago, has been the absence of player Indiana Pacers, Paul George, who fractured his tibia and fibula in a friendly match with the Americans. It will require a full year to recover, so the 2014/2015 NBA season will sit him out.

No confirmed roster yet, but with top players, the team in white shirts keep the base in recent years, which led him to the top of the game. However, forward Kobe Bryant won’t count any more in the plans.

Among the most prominent names and surnames who excel, are the centers Kevin Love and Blake Griffin, forwards James Harden and Bradley Beal, and guards Stephen Curry, Derrick Rose and Damian Lillard.
