I've noticed quite a few new members here from Lebanon lately that I thought I would edit/merge some threads/posts into an introduction thread for the middle east.

So let us know where you are from, where you live now, how old you are, how you found out about Interbasket...

If my math is right, we gained 13 new Lebanese members today and yesterday alone (we gained 10 during the world championships). That's pretty amazing.

We can forgive you for that. We still welcome you. :)

Yep. We lost all our info, but I have to say that since coming back online, this is the strongest IBN has been... ever.

Anyways, welcome to you all, happy to have a Lebanese contingent represented... I am still wondering where this link is being passed around?

Yinka Dare :D

In the NBA, Dare played 110 games in four seasons with the Nets; in his rookie campaign, Dare played for three minutes (thereby earning over $300,000 per minute and the nickname "The Three-Minute Egg") before getting injured (torn ACL) and missing the rest of the season. The Nets left him unprotected during the 1995 expansion draft, but he was not selected by either the Toronto Raptors or the Vancouver Grizzlies. In his first full season (1995-96), in which he played a personal best 58 out of 82 games, he turned the ball over 72 times while registering no assists [2]. He still holds the NBA record for most consecutive minutes played without an assist. During his four-year career, he would rack up a grand total of four assists accompanied by 96 turnovers, creating one of the worst assists-to-turnover ratios of all time. For his career, he averaged only 2.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, and less than 0.1 assists per game.

By midway through his third season in 1996-97, the search for Dare's first assist had taken on a life of its own. Several times, Nets fans booed when players missed shots that would have earned Dare his first dime. In January, Khalid Reeves missed an open three-pointer, prompting Dare to later say, "Maybe next game I'll get the same thing and get this over with."

A few nights later, Dare ended 77 games and 770 minutes of frustration when he finally got his first assist. Teammate Jayson Williams laughed that Yinka was so happy about his assist that he "came in after the game and started passing out the towels."

Because of his underwhelming performance and distinct name, Dare was subject to frequent ridicule from fans and players. He was commonly referred to (even by his own teammate Kenny Anderson) as "Stinka" Dare or as the "Black Hole", due to the joke that the ball, once in his hands, "disappeared" after one of his frequent turnovers. One writer also said that "Dare" was Nigerian for "comes to NBA without game."

Almost tragicomic was the fact that in spite of his ineptitude, he straight-facedly compared his game to NBA legends like Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing and Shaquille O'Neal at his post-draft press conference, stating that "For instance, Shaq is explosive around the basket, and I am, too", and that "If I play my best, I'll be better than some of the best big men who ever played. I'm going to be an All-Star. In a couple of years I can be an All-Star and play with the best centers in the NBA. The teams that didn't draft me made a mistake." Then he labeled himself "a great defensive center. A great offensive center. An ideal center." Finally he said: "I have high expectations for myself. I'm confident and self-motivated. I've been on my own for a couple of years now and I've come a long way. I plan to play a long time in this league and to do as much as I can for the Nets."

At the end of his third season, his agent, Brad Marshall burst into a postgame press conference and began yelling at Nets coach John Calipari: "Why isn't Yinka Dare playing? It seems to me he deserves to play. He did everything he was asked and still isn't getting an opportunity. Enough is enough. Trade him, waive him, or play him." Calipari chuckled, and replied: "Oh, that will get him playing time," and traded him to the Orlando Magic in 1998, where he was immediately cut and retired soon after.

He played intermittently in other leagues including the Continental Basketball Association and United States Basketball League until 2003.


After his playing career
Dare died in 2004 after collapsing in his home in New Jersey. A medical examiner determined that Dare had a heart attack due to an arrhythmia condition discovered when he was in college.

Lucious Harris, who joined the Nets in 1997-98, Dare's final season said "It's a bad situation. I feel for his family. Just 32, to have a heart attack, that's scary. It always seemed like he was in shape. But things happen and you don't understand why."

Kerry Kittles, who played with Dare in the latter's final two Nets seasons said: "He was a quiet guy, didn't talk that much. He worked hard - he didn't really play much, but he was a fun guy to be around. [He was] young: It makes you think... anything can happen any time. It's in the back of your mind [that] it could happen to you."

Mike Jarvis, who coached Dare at George Washington, told The Washington Post, "Yinka was a kind, gentle person. He was nice to my family, as respectful as anybody I've come into contact with. I don't remember him having a bad word to say about anybody; just a nice, sweet kid."

Dare is survived by parents Gabriel and Joan, two sisters and a brother

Hi gang! I missed this thread, so I want to introduce myself.

I'm Matt from Ohio in the United States. I really enjoy following basketball leagues all over the world. I'm really happy that I can read about leagues from Iran, Jordan, Syria, and the rest of West Asia here at InterBasket, because there are so many good contributors to the site. I love hearing the gossip. Unfortunately, since I don't know much about most of the players in those leagues, I don't know very much except for the big stars or the NCAA stars who play in West Asia.

byeWell, I wouldn't worry about the future of the Lebanese NT. You guys look pretty strong for several years to come. I think the biggest problem facing the NT is that if the political situation gets bad again. If that happens, all Lebanese sports will be hurt.

Hello guys.
Welcome to the forum lebbasket and eagleaqua,hope to see u active unlike some lebanese who just show up before the start of any regional cup :o

Concerning the guy Alain,is he somehow brown ? and he plays as a PG ?
Because theres around 25players in junior blue stars and i dont know all of them by name.

Third,About the NCAA's lebanese players,theres many threads here where you can get any information about any player.

About bassel please check this (http://forums.interbasket.net/showthread.php?t=6785) thread

About hayk,mustapha and ahmad and all the young players please check this (http://forums.interbasket.net/showthread.php?t=6327)thread

Just for clarification guys,Ahmad ibrahim is not in the NCAA because hes only 16 years,hes going to play next year with Patterson high school where Van exel the NBA player is coaching them.

the imp thing is that i have infos that antwain barbour will play with outr national team but he won't play in the lebanese league cause the europians team are offering him more than 2 000 000 $ to play with them thing that the flbb can't afford it

I didn't think this forum had an introduction thread so I'm glad I found this.

My name is Nadia, I'm 21 years old and I'm from Kuwait. I'm currently studying Medicine in Malta, but right now I'm in Kuwait, waiting for university to start next month.

I mostly grew up around Association football, since that's the most popular sport in the region. But I also enjoy Rugby football, mainly because of my mother, since she comes from a traditional Rugby city in England (Bath, Somerset).

Our local sports team in Kuwait is Kuwait SC. That's the team my family and I support around here. I also support teams from Boston, including Boston Celtics, as I'm slightly attached to that city. Boston is where I grew up in the early 90s, when my parents were doing further postgraduate education/specialization.

So that's the story of my life. :p

Hi Khalid. Thanks for the warm welcome. :)

I'm not surprised it's rare finding members from the Gulf, since most of us seem to be uninterested in basketball, unfortunately. I hope I could change that around here, though. :p

Thanks. :)

Not a lot of females, either? I hope this forum gives rights to its minority groups. :p
