Lithuania is the best basketball country in the world per capita.

Best fans, solid players, consistent and overall great basketball culture.

I am not an analyst or anything. These are only my opinions.



Group A

Spain
Lithuania
Turkey
Great Britain
Poland
Some Random Team

Spain is most likely gonna be the first in this group as long as they don't get affected from the Lithuanian fans.
Lithuania will use their HCA and be either 2nd or 3rd depending on Turkey's performance.
Turkey was great at FIBA 2010 where they had th HCA but I don't think they can beat Spain without their fans' support.
I don't think Poland or Britain can be first 3 in this group.



Group B

Italy
Israel
France
Latvia
Germany
Serbia

Serbia will most likely be first in this group with France and Germany following them.


Group C

Bosnia and Herzegovina
Macedonia
Croatia
Some Random Team
Montenegro
Greece

I don't know much about this group except Greece but I am pretty sure Greece will win all the games and lead the group.

Group D

Bulgaria
Georgia
Russia
Ukraine
Belgium
Slovenia

Although Slovenia lost to Turkey in a blowout game in Istanbul they have a great, young core and have what it takes to beat Russia.
Again I don't know much about the rest of the countries.


Group E(Top 3 of Group A and B)

IMO:
Spain
Lithuania
Turkey
Serbia
Germany
France

Spain and Serbia will be top 2 imo. The winner of the Turkey/Lithuania game back in Group A will be the 3rd and the loser will most likely be the 4th.I'll go with Lithuania as the 3rd because of the HCA.


Group F

IMO:
Greece
Russia
Slovenia
Random Team who will be eliminated
Random Team who will be eliminated
Random Team who will be eliminated

I don't know much about the other teams in Groups C and D except Greece,Russia and Slovenia but I know they aren't good enough to beat these 3.
5000 Slovenians came to Istanbul to support their team so they are most likely gonna be in Lithuania too. That will be a huge advantage against Russia in the First Round game. So Greece will be first,Slovenia second and Russia third.


Quarter Finals


Spain vs Random team that will lose
Serbia vs Russia
Lithuania vs Slovenia
Turkey vs Greece

Spain wins.
Serbia wins.
Lithuania wins.
Turkey/Greece game will be very interesting. Turkey won the game against Greece in FIBA 2010 and Greece is a declining team IMO.It will be a close game but I think Turkey would win.


Semi Finals

Spain vs Lithuania
Turkey vs Serbia


Lithuania is a developing team and will be a contender for every championship in the next 5 years however Gasol brothers will most likely join the squad which is already strong so I'll go with Spain.

Turkey won against Spain with a controversial layup against Serbia. I think that loss will help Serbia win against Turkey this time. Serbia is the next finalist.

3rd Place

Turkey vs Lithuania

Lithuania will win this game no matter what to get a medal at home.

Final

Spain vs Serbia

Serbia won't be lucky against Spain this time like they were in 2010. Spain wins.

Turkey actually did beat Spain at Eurobasket 2009, albeit in an ugly game. The rosters are very close to what they are now. Mind you, Spain were the winners that year.

I think Turkey will do good if Hedo does good. When he is one he is really good, both creating and shooting. He gets lazy and just jacks up bad fade aways most of the time though.
