The basketball world cup was abuzz when basketball’s biggest event ever took place in Istanbul, Turkey. This year’s FIBA World Championship tournament takes place in Istanbul again this year. But what fans have missed out on is the most fun part: the exhibition games.
Exhibition Games: Basketball World Cup
Exhibition games are one of the highlights of any major sports event, and the ones held at the basketball world cup were no exception. In the first half, a trade show was held to formally hand over the rights of the upcoming FIBA basketball world cup tournament to the Philippines, China, Japan, and Indonesian. As hosts of the upcoming 2020 FIBA basketball world cup, which is scheduled to take place in Istanbul from 25th August to 10th September. Then, the host country got to show off its basketball talent during an exhibition game that pitted their best against other countries.
Most Talented Player In The World: Basketball World Cup
The Japanese team was led by point guard Masamitsu Takaki, who is considered the most talented player in the world. The Asian team had three players who played their college ball at California, namely; Chinanu Onuaku, Keita Takahashi, and Yu’bertu. All three of them were very good at what they do on the court, especially Chinanu Onuaku, who scored the game-winning basket for Japan in the first half. Keita Takahashi is known for his excellent three-point shooting, while Yu’bertu is known for his rebounding abilities.
Chinese Team: Basketball World Cup
The Chinese team, the big man from Taiwan, Lu Yi, played big in the game. He put up very impressive numbers with his scoring and rebounding. But he also had to be one of the more stoic competitors in the tournament as his team, also known as the “Winds,” went through a grueling nine-game tournament to make it to the final round. Meanwhile, the Indonesian team brought its star to the game: Filipino forward Tacko Fall. Also known for his strong outside shooting and strong rebounding skills.
The Chinese and Japanese teams met in a second-half exhibition that pitted their star players against the Filipino team and also pitted them against each other. When all was said and done, the Chinese team edged out the Filipino squad. Although that did not surprise those who have watched the players on the basketball world cup.
From the way the exhibition games were set up. It seems like the basketball world cup in Istanbul will continue to be one of the biggest games of the year and perhaps the most talked about event in the entire tournament. Hopefully, the world’s best players will once again grace the court for this year’s event.
The best players at the exhibition games include; Chinese star players, Taiwanese, Japanese and Chinese international players, the Chinese national team, Japanese international players, Filipino international players, Taiwanese national team, and Filipino national team players. Also, NBA stars like; Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett, and John Stockton will likely be at the event.
