Former NBA Commissioner David stern believes that the international basketball Federation (FIBA) made the mistake of moving the world Cup in odd years.

The current world Cup takes place in China. The last tournament, which was held in the even year was the world Cup 2014 in Spain. According to the expert, in connection with the transfer in their national teams came many famous players from the NBA. The world Cup is held every four years.

“FIBA made the mistake of moving the world Cup in odd years. As a result, you ask the players to perform at the world Cup, a season, and then to participate in the Olympic games. I think this has led many players to choose between the two international tournaments,” said stern, who leads The Undefeated.
