FIBA Tournaments Next Month Can Help Ease Lockout Blues
The lockout is making us NBA fans ornery. But if you are in need of a basketball fix, about 60 NBA players will be representing foreign countries at the upcoming FIBA Americas and FIBA Europe tournaments being held in Argentina and Lithuania, respectively. The tournaments begin at the end of August, and are qualifiers for the 2012 Olympics in London. The USA is not fielding a team this year since they already qualified for London by winning the 2010 FIBA World Title.
