The complete guide to EuroBasket 2022: previews, schedules, summaries...

Very useful throughout the duration of EuroBasket 2022 which will take place in Germany, Italy, Georgia and the Czech Republic from 1st to September 18, this guide will accompany you for two and a half weeks and will try to answer all your questions. When do we play, against whom and on which channel? This is where it all happens and there will even be small bonuses. Regal, right?

We will first start by specifying that you will have to be a Canal+ subscriber to follow the exploits of our Frenchies and the best posters of the competition live, while certain matches (excluding geo-restrictions) will also be available on Courtside 1891, the new FIBA ​​streaming platform. For the subscribers of the encrypted channel who would be panicked by falling on golf on Canal+ Sport or on Jason Bourne in the process of sowing his enemies on Canal+, no stress. The group has just launched Canal+ Sport 360, a new channel which should smell good on the courts during EuroBasket 2022 as you can see in the first week’s TV program. But before we dive into the schedule below, let’s start with some brief introductions. Already because at TrashTalk we are polite but it can also help you to seem unbeatable on the subject when you are questioned curiously at the coffee machine as soon as the EDF has started to win a few matches.

We have to make a little confession: ohhas rarely been so hyped before a EuroBasket ! No exaggeration or style effect here, we promise. Just read the line-up to understand that we will be entitled to caviar at lunch and dinner for the duration of the competition. The time when NBA stars were reluctant to come and help their selection by preferring to take a little more rest on the edge of a heavenly beach is no longer relevant, at least on the Old Continent. No room for second teams, the All-Stars and MVPs of our beloved league will be out. From Giannis Antetokounmpo to Nikola Jokic via Rudy Gobert, everyone has decided to come back to try to succeed Slovenia by Luka Doncic and Goran Dragic in 2017. Five years already (thanks the COVID for bonus year) that this small country of 2 million inhabitants can boast of being the best basketball nation in Europe. The competition is freaking out because the Don has not weakened, quite the contrary. However, it is very difficult to come out with a real favorite among the 24 teams that will participate in the dance.

Here is the five-star cast, with well-known faces even for those who swear by the NBA all year round. Here is the list of all the NBAers who will be present with their selection (here) as well as 10 European nuggets that should soon put the Great League at their feet (the). Beautiful people with the sole objective of bringing the cup home and nothing else. Because those who hoped to see France take advantage of EuroBasket 2022 to validate their ticket for the 2023 World Cup can already put their flag away: the results will have no impact on future international competitions. Too bad, so much the better, we forget the calculations and we give everything to get a nice trophy at the end of the final stages organized in Berlin. Enough blabla, we move on to the team presentations below!

The french team

It is with two additional charms in their cupboards that the Tricolores will show up in Cologne this week. With their new status as Olympic vice-champions, the Blues will not be able to hide. Admittedly, Nicolas Batum and Nando De Colo stayed at home to come back better next year, but the French team is undoubtedly one of the contenders in 2022. The preparation which began three weeks ago ended with a record of 5 wins for 1 defeat. Unfortunately, the Blues will still arrive with a bad taste in their mouths since the setback conceded to the country of Jusuf Nurkic arrived at the worst time, just before starting the Euro mode. We will have to quickly get out of this dynamic since France will be tested from the start by facing the Mannschaft at home. A very bad memory because they are also the last executioners of EDF at EuroBasket 2017 at the stage of the round of 16.

As for the opponents, Slovenia will want to take revenge after Batum’s against in Tokyo a year ago and it is no longer worth presenting Lithuania – anyway you religiously devoured our 11 team previews available above. So we needed a group of soldiers, a clever mix of youth and experience, NBA and European game so without further ado here is the identity of our heroes without forgetting a big thought for Isaïa Cordinier and Mam Jaiteh who participated in the preparation to the end before returning to the side of the EDF supporters, just like our new compatriot Joel Embiid who preferred to treat his hand rather than debuting in the blue jersey this year. We can still expect some very chauvinistic little live tweets on the Process account to continue to stir things up.
