There will definitely be one person tuning in to watch in the United States, and that's Spain's Rudy Fernandez.
The Portland Trail Blazer, a member of the all-tournament team at EuroBasket 2009 after helping Spain capture a gold-medal, is interested because his sister Marta Fernandez is playing for Europe after enjoying another solid season with Wisla Can-Pack Krakow.
"I am very happy and proud," Rudy said.
"It was the fans who have selected her and that is very important.
"I have no doubt that Marta is one of the best players in women's basketball and deserves it!"
Rudy and Marta are very close and both remember the days when they'd play against each other in pick-up games.
"Many times in interviews, they ask me who my idol is in the sport," Rudy said.
"I always answer Marta, because not only is she very talented but has also struggled and worked for the best."
