Is World Championship Basketball Underrated

So, my best mate and I were rapping over the 2010 FIBA World Championships.  He's from Australia and says after the NBA, that FIBA is the best competition in the world.  I said, that the Olympics was second best, and then probably the Spanish league before FIBA, and he said, "Get out of here." 

He says that a lot. 

So then I said, "Listen, BROTHER, I watch way more basketball than you."  Then he said, "You're a bloody wanker, mate." 

He says that a lot too.

So then I said, "What do you even know about international basketball?"  And then he said, "Come on, there are more NBA players in FIBA than in in those leagues."  So then I said, "Even the Olympics?"  And he said, "Well that don't count."

That's when I realized he was drunk, so I said, "Every team in the NBA could beat every FIBA team except team USA."  And he replied, "Get out of here, you blood wanker!" 

I told you he said those two phrases a lot.
