At the 2019 FIBA World Cup, France beat a U.S. team lacking NBA superstars in the quarterfinals en route to a second straight bronze medal. France lost to Spain in the last two Olympic quarterfinals, sending Tony Parker into retirement without an Olympic medal. They were the first nation to name its Olympic men’s basketball roster.
