And do you know their Fiba ranking? It is 13
But i can easily admit that rankings are weird for european teams look at that list:
FIBA.com - Official FIBA ranking

9.China (LOL)
11.Australia
12.Angola (WTF)
13.New Zealand
15.France
17.Rusia
18.Turkey
19.Canada
20.Slovenia

It is weird isn't it?
I know i lost the point about topic, sorry for that
thanks for pointing out the rankings. I'm totally surprised new Zealand is that high given they haven't done anything on an international stage. I guess beating all those Oceania teams adds to the winning percentage (similar to what windex is saying).

Your list also has me pretty shocked at how low Turkey is given the talent on their team.
