Why is Australia star confident about the goal

Mitch Creek is more excited than ever when FIBA ​​2019 World Cup is getting closer.

Last time Mitch Creek won the Australian national team medal at the 2017 FIBA ​​Asia Cup when Boomers (the nickname of the Australian national basketball team) swept all the matches they contributed and brought home prestigious title.

However, with FIBA ​​World Cup - a completely different and bigger playing field, Mitch Creek seems to have set a big goal for himself in this year's tournament. He was the one who led the green-gold army to the Asian Cup championship two years ago, he was considered the soul of the Australian team at the time, and he could not wait until the training period began. "I have been preparing for FIBA ​​World Cup in my mind for a long time. And it is a great thing for all players of the country to compete for a place in the final squad. I have gotten better in the past and I want to help Boomers have great games this summer, what better way to play at the biggest basketball festival on the planet, and I really want to experience that late this summer in China".

According to the latest information, the Australian team has summoned its brightest stars including Ben Simmons, Andrew Bogut, Jonah Bolden, Matthew Dellattedova, Aron Baynes, Joe Ingles and Patty Mill. This national team will have a stable squad in every position, and Mitch Creek believes they will be one of the best teams at FIBA ​​World Cup this year.

"We have a lot of talented players, a lot of experienced players and perhaps this is the best team in Australian basketball history ever. We have the best players in the team. , in the top leagues in the world and all of them are out of the way to bring the national team together, I am very excited about that. How am I playing basketball and my country children are being inspired by Ben Simmons, Andrew Bogut or Patty Mills".

Creek is the Australian national team's most effective player in the Asian FIBA ​​World Cup qualifiers with an average of 14 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. But this humble guy knows his ability and position as well as his teammates when he will have to compete with Ben Simmons or young player Jonah Bolden. "Ben is a great player. A smart PG with the ability to feel good in the game. He will surely become one of the best players of this year's tournament. As for Jonah, he is a certain player, a model that everyone wants to play with. We have good people to build a very, very, very good team, this will be an interesting chapter in Australian basketball history".

Despite various comments and predictions about the future of the Australian team at this tournament, Creek is still confident that finishing the season with the top 3 position is completely at hand. That's what Australian basketball history has never done. They have never crossed the quarterfinals of previous seasons, but if they can bring a medal, it will be a brilliant milestone for Australian basketball in particular and Asian basketball in general.

"I am also very excited to experience the matches in China, the ambience and the enthusiasm of the people are great. It is a country of basketball and it will be even better when those The best people who gather together here. All of which will create one of the best FIBA ​​World Cup awards ever" .
