EuroBasket

Spain's men's basketball best performance in this championship had been its silver won at the now distant Eurobasket 1935. Then Spain came to host the 2007 Eurobasket. At this competition, the same 12 players that won the 2006 World Championship in Japan made it through to the final. This increased expectations for the Spanish national team to become the first national team to win the first Eurobasket held right after having won the previous FIBA World Championship. However, they were defeated by the Russia national basketball team with a basket of a russian player in the last seconds and the error of Pau Gasol(Spanish Player) at the last shoot. Spain, thus took the silver medal.

Then, at the next Eurobasket 2009 Spain went to win the gold medal in this competition for the first time in its history.

Olympics

Before the Spanish national team won the gold medal in the 2006 FIBA World Championship (see below), their greatest international success was reaching the final in the 1984 Summer Olympics Basketball Tournament which took place in Los Angeles. The other finalist was the U.S.A. national team (led by Patrick Ewing and featuring a young Michael Jordan), which won the final and with it the gold medal. Spain, thus, took the Olympic silver medal.

Continuing the success started at the 2006 FIBA championship, Spain reached again the final at the 2008 Olympics. Twenty four years after, this time the final was played again against the U.S.A. national team, which was led by Kobe Bryant and nicknamed in this occasion "the Redeem Team". The Americans won after a remarkably close game and the Spanish team took its second Olympic silver medal.

FIBA World Championship 2006

Spain national basketball team celebrating the Championship won in Tokyo.

On September 3, 2006, Spain won the gold medal game at the 2006 FIBA World Championship against the Greek national team. The game, held in Saitama, Japan, ended with a final score of 70-47. This marked the first time the Spanish national basketball team won the gold medal in the World Championships.

Pau Gasol was named the tournament MVP, and Jorge Garbajosa also made the All-Tournament team.

Shortly afterwards, the team were awarded with the 2006 Prince of Asturias Award in Sports

Media controversy prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games

In August 2008, prior to their competing in the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the Spanish national mens' basketball team were photographed posing in what British media reports described as a 'racist' and 'insensitive' image. However, the Chinese embassy in Spain promptly declared that they "did not consider the gesture as racist" nor "offensive"[2]. The image was requested for an advertising campaign for a courier company and was published in a Spanish national daily sports newspaper. [3][4][5]
