With a roster filled with NBA talent Canada are serious contenders to go all the way. This is noteworthy as at past World Cups, some of Canada’s top talents were absent and they suffered because of it. They’ll be led by All-NBA point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, while they’re missing Jamal Murray through injury, their wing depth is some of the best in the competition with RJ Barrett, Dillon Brooks, and Lu Dort among those available.

Even with all the talent, Canada may struggle to finish top of Group H, which features Latvia, Lebanon and France who they meet up first.

Les Bleus brings a formidable roster following a second-place finish in the 2022 EuroBasket tournament. Even without the prodigious Victor Wembanyama involved, the French can still count on four current NBA players including Nicolas Batum (LA Clippers) and three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year recipient Rudy Gobert (Minnesota Timberwolves). France was excellent through the qualifying process, earning their ticket to the World Cup with a game to spare.
