Disappointing Performances in the FIBA World Championships

Posted: September 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

The FIBA world chamionships 2010 is nearing it end with Turkey and U.S.A facing in the Finals. There has been pleasant surprises but there are also disappoinments. Here are the most disappointing preformances in this years tournament.

Boris Diaw

Diaw was suppose to lead the French National Team this year, but his performance was sub-par the whole tournament. The only good game he had was against Turkey where he had 21 pts 5 rebs 4 assts 2 stls 1 blk. He only averaged 8.5 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 3.7 apg, far from what we all expected.

Marc Gasol

With his brother, Pau, not playing for the Spanish National Team, everyone expected that the younger brother will somehow replace the void of his older brother inside. Marc, who was inconsistent the entire tournament had pretty good averages of 12.4 ppg, 6 rpg, but people expected more from him especially in the scoring standpoint. His rebounding was also sub-par. A bright spot in his preformance was his blocks where he averaged more than 2 a game.

Rick Rubio

Ricky , I think, was  passive the entire tournament especially in scoring. I know that he is a pass-first point guard, but he has to know when to score and when to pass. And with the kind of team the spanish have this year, without Calderon and Gasol, he was expected to step up his scoring and unfortunately he didn’t.
