The 1994 FIBA World Championship was the first time that the FIBA World Championship (now called FIBA Basketball World Cup) allowed current American NBA players that had already played in an official NBA regular season game to participate. Prior to that only professionals from other leagues were allowed to compete, since players from other leagues were still considered amateurs.
The tournament was won by the United States's "Dream Team II", who beat Russia 137-91 in the Final. The United States finished with a perfect 8-0 record (8 wins and 0 losses). The bronze medal was won by Croatia who beat Greece 78-60 in the bronze-medal game.
