Like the FIFA World Cup, the FIBA World Cup will give fans plenty to see of the sport. From Saturday until Thursday, there will be anywhere from six to 12 basketball games played each day, and while that sounds a bit chaotic, it is exactly what basketball fans are looking forward to.

After Thursday, there will be a rest day, followed by the knockout stages of the World Cup that will go until Sunday, Sept. 14 when the championship game will be held. That's over two weeks of basketball.

So whether you are an avid basketball fan who has been waiting for months for this to start, an NBA fan who can't wait for basketball season, or just someone who is looking for something to watch during the next couple of weeks, the World Cup of basketball is definitely for you.

The teams of the world will come together, emotions will run high and a champion will be crowned. You won't want to miss it.
