Les Bleus will be hungrier than most, having missed out on recent EuroBasket, World Cup and Olympic glory by the finest of margins. Rudy Gobert and Evan Fournier have been in frightening form ahead of the tournament, and good thing too, as being drawn into the same group as possibly the best Canadian team ever means they'll need to hit the ground running in order to secure as favorable a route as possible through the 2nd round and knockouts.
