The best 5 team leaders at the FIBA World Cup 2019

This edition of the FIBA World Cup will be full with NBA-ers and it seems hard to say who are the best among the players involved in this high-level competition. Below I will present you the most important team leaders who can drive their nation to a medal at the end of the tournament. Their experience and presence on the court mean a lot for the success of the whole squad.

5. Marc Gasol

In the absence of his brother, Pau, Marc Gasol recently crowned NBA champion with Toronto Raptors will be the main figure of the Spanish roster. His motivation is high and he looks like the guy who will better die on the court than lose.

4. Rudy Gobert

The French big man is averaging impressive numbers in the NBA. His defense skills will help France a lot at this tournament, where the giant will average very easy a double-double with points and rebounds. And let’s not forget about his amazing blocks!

3. Kemba Walker

The American squad in spite of the absentees still has many important names and Kemba Walker is the right man to boost the offensive game, coordinating his teammates to achieve a medal.

2. Nikola Jokic

The big Serbian will be the key factor for his team in the toughest games at the World Cup. Considered the best center in the NBA at the moment, Jokic will be hard to defend by any team. With concentration and a bit of luck, he can lead Serbia to steal the gold medal!

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Greek freak is the NBA MVP of the season and actually the best player in the world. He is everywhere on the court, helping his team both on defense and offense. He is the most difficult player to guard because his arsenal includes all the weapons that a player needs. With him as a leader, Greece can hope for a spot on the podium.
