Eurobasket '09: France and Spain Get It On

What a tough draw for a France team that has dominated the tournament. This should be a hell of a war. Tip off is 2:00pm Spurs time (I think).

You can find links to the box score and updates for the game at EuroBasket's home page.

I don't have time to give you a proper LatinD style preview, but I can tell you this: there are a lot of NBA players in this game. France, as we know, has Tony Parker, Rony Turiaf, Nicolas Batum, Boris Diaw, Ian Mahinmi (if he's healthy yet), and SpurNando. Spain has the Geico cavemen (Marc and Pau), Rudy Fernandez, former NBA-baller turned I'm-getting-the-hell-out-of-Memphis Juan Carlos Navarro, former NBA-baller Jorge Garbajosa, Raul Lopez (who I think played a couple years in the NBA, but it could be a different Raul), and three young guys who were all drafted this last year. Sergio Llull, Victor Claver, and some dude named Ricky Rubio.

You can bet the BlazersEdge guys will be watching this one with both Batum and Fernandez playing.
