Schröder as leader, Theis for the spectacle and a frustrated, highly talented player: Germany’s successful national basketball team is made up of a wide variety of characters. A squad tour.
The German national team is again among the top eight nations in the world, which was last the case at a World Cup in 2006. Back then, they lost out to the USA in the quarter-finals, and this Wednesday the prospects against outsiders Latvia (10.45 a.m. German time, live ticker SZ.de) are far better: Germany is the favorite after five wins in five games. Only then could there be another World Cup duel with the USA in the semi-finals, which are now considered beatable. Even the second World Cup medal after bronze in 2002 (thanks to the incomparable Dirk Nowitzki back then) is now a realistic goal for the German Basketball Association (DBB) team. A look at players and coaches who have been impressing the world in Asia so far.
