Basketball World Cup in a week!

In a bid to emulate the wildly successful soccer world cup, basketball’s governing body FIBA is changing the name of its tournament from the world championship (which had been used since 1950) to the world cup. They also made several other changes to make the event more TV friendly. Unfortunately, the sport is still a long way from achieving the same level of success as the FIFA World Cup. Many top basketball stars have opted to skip this year’s tournament to prepare for the NBA season. Check out the 2014 Basketball World Cup TV Schedule.
