7-foot Brian Sigafoos was born in Thailand of american parents who lived there for 5 years and should he be given a thai passport and be eligible to play as a local will certainly give Indonesia some sleepless nights as the 2nd best team in southeast asia, much more if they acquire one more naturalized 7-footer.

Indonesia should do likewise and have one too - and the rest of southeast asia as well;):D

I have no idea how good Mac Dotzauer (180cms.) is but playing as a professional basketball player in Germany is really something.

The possibility of Dotzauer and Sigafoos playing together for Thailand might do wonders for them and a big threat for Indonesia as southeast asia's second best team in the region.

Curiously, Chang Tsun Hsien (190cms.) of Taiwan also played in the German league aside from Geiger Juefan (204cms.) a Taiwanese-German. With regards to Geiger did he ever played for Chinese-Taipei's national team at all before, anyone ?

Ron Harper as Indo coach or Indo trainer only for SEA Games 2011? The report here seems to be vague, although having him on the team's technical staff would definitely do wonders for them, I smell our U23 (Sinag Team) would have a hard time beating them.


Former NBA Player Coaching Men Indonesian Basketball Team - May 10, 2011 (by Koko Triloka (triloka.jokovic@gmail.com))

JAKARTA, Men's basketball national team that will perform at the SEA Games XXVI in 2011 on November 11 to 22 in Jakarta and Palembang got coaching of former NBA player, Ron Harper. Former Chicago Bulls and LA Lakers are on the first day of their visit to Indonesia in Indonesia Development Camp program (IDC) III in Senayan Trade Center (STC), Senayan, Jakarta, Monday (09/05/2011), directly providing training materials to Faisal Achmad and his teamate.

All national team players who were 18 people on the first day getting training materials ranging from heating, shooting, game system to survive, until the system attacking game. IDC III initiated by the National Basketball League (NBL) and fully supported by the Bakrie Kalila Investment (BKI) will last until Friday (05/12/2011). The training is also supported by the Toronto Raptors assistant coach Eric Hughes.

'This is the first time for us working with NBA players in basketball national training. We hope the opportunity to learn from one of the NBA legend can be put to good use by all players,' said the basketball national team manager's, Bakrie Syailendra, when confirmed.

According to him, before getting out in the SEA Games in 2011, it hoped all players can practice with a maximum due to high target to get the medal should be realized.

With the support of line coach who has been handling Prihantono Amin and his friends, Rastafari Horongbala and two assistant coaches, Fictor Roring and Johanis Winar, all in accordance with the optimistic side that has been planned.

Meanwhile, Ron Harper said, to achieve the best results, it appealed to all national training players to work hard in realizing his dream, that one of them being the best at the SEA Games 2011.

'The important thing is the players have to have dreams and are willing to work hard to make it happen,' he said.

Besides having a dream, he said, all players must also understand that playing basketball is a collective game, not an individual game. For that, he will give his best during the plunge in the NBA.

List of national team players who trained with Ron Harper:

Achmad Faisal, Dwi Haryoko, Mario Wuysang, Pringgo Regowo, Ary Chandra, Amin Prihantono, Xavier Prawiro, Dimas Aryo Dewanto, Andy Poedjakesuma, Fidyandini, I Made Sudiadnyana, Wllyanson Situmorang, Rony Gunawan, Nyoman Ponsianus Indrawan, Chistian Ronaldo Sitepu, Muhammad Ismail Toyib, Rachel Febri Utomo, and Romy Christanto Chandra.

RI men’s basketball targets top-two

JAKARTA: The Indonesian men’s basketball squad for the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games hopes to finish in the top two at the 9th SEABA Championship next week in Jakarta.

“Hopefully, we can win our opener against the Singapore team so that we have a greater chance to finish second and qualify for the [Sept. 15-25] FIBA Asia Championship in Wuhan, China,” Indonesian Basketball Association (PERBASI) secretary-general Agus Mauro said on Wednesday.

Agus added that the FIBA Asia Championship would be a fine proving ground for the squad, which is targeting a gold medal at the SEA Games in November. “If we qualify, we will get a bargain opportunity to face high-quality opponents from around Asia,” Agus said.

Four countries including the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia will take part in the June 23-26 SEABA Championship at the Britama Arena at Sports Mall Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta. Indonesia’s first game will be against Singapore on June 23. On the second day, Indonesia will face the toughest team from the Phillipines and will meet Malaysia on the third day. — JP

Gunawan is basically a forward. A typical FIBA forward (combo forward), if I may add. I think he was just forced to play center in Indonesia due to lack of big men.

That's how I view Aguilar, Penisi, and Raymundo as well. Even Kelly Williams and Jay Washington. They're more of a typical forward in FIBA standards but are forced to play as inside as Philippines doesn't have an abundance of power forwards or centers that are 6'9" and above.

Former DLSU Green Archer Ferdinand earns place in Indonesian national team
By Reuben Terrado
June 10, 2013, 02:44 pm

http://contents.spin.ph/image/Ferdinand-0608.jpg
Former DLSU player Ferdinand says the experience he gained playing for so many years in the Philippines has helped him make a name for himself in Indonesia's professional league. Jerome Ascano

WHEN the Philippines defends the basketball gold medal in the 2013 Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar, the nationals are bound to come across one familiar face in the Indonesian team.

Former De La Salle Green Archer Ferdinand will be making his debut for Indonesia's national team in the Myanmar showpiece later this year after playing his first season in the country's first professional league.

Ferdinand, a full-blooded Indonesian who studied in the Philippines for many years, played for Pelita Jaya Energi-MP in the just-concluded season of Indonesia's National Basketball League where his team lost to Aspac Jakarta in the championship game two weeks ago.

Ferdinand has played well enough in Indonesia's local league to earn a call-up to the national team.

“It’s pretty exciting but I still got room to improve,” said the 25-year-old Ferdinand when he was spotted by Spin.ph watching Game Two of the Asean Basketball League finals between the San Miguel Beermen and the Indonesia Warriors from ringside on Sunday.

“Right now I’m in the national team that will play in the SEA Games in Myanmar,” he added.

After playing high school ball at La Salle-Greenhills, Ferdinand spent four seasons with the Taft-based squad from 2007 to 2010 where he won a championship in his first year under Franz Pumaren.

Ferdinand, who speaks fluent Tagalog, said the experience he gained playing for so many years in the Philippines has helped him make a name for himself in Indonesian basketball.

“The mentality and the skills,” said Ferdinand when asked what he picked up from his years in the Philippines. “The mentality of the Filipino, laban lagi. Tsaka ‘yung skills.

"Indonesia basketball is just starting to go up eh. So I have an advantage.”

Ferdinand makes it a point to visit the Philippines at least thrice a year to meet with friends. His recent visit came at a time when his hometown Warriors were battling the Beermen for the ABL crown.

Incidentally, Ferdinand wore a San Miguel Beermen jersey of Asi Taulava when he watched Game One of the best-of-five series but clarified that he is not rooting for any team.

“I don’t really support any team. It’s hard. I have friends from both sides. I just watch for fun. I don’t even clap. Only for the showtime,” said Ferdinand.

He admitted, though, that he considers Taulava a big brother, the reason he wore his jersey in Game One.

“I asked for his jersey and I promised him that I will wear it during their games. Asi is my big brother. When they go to my country, I take him around,” said Ferdinand.
