Veterans do have value in international play, but this is not to suggest that TPE must bank on Chih-Chieh's generation forever.

    Eddie Tsai recently published an article about a 34 man TPE NT pool that is clustered in three classifications for players:

    Veteran Mentors (Tien Lei etc)
    Active Players (Liu Cheng etc)
    Prospects (Wu Pei-Chia, Jonah Morrison etc)

    Under Eddie's "generational" TPE NT pool, TPE A can tap two veteran mentors, stock the team with active players and reserve three spots for prospects to gain experience. Let's face it, there's not that many players for TPE that are NT quality from the SBL ranks. TPE B aka Universiade was literally scraping the barrel for their current roster.
    THis is a promising idea.
    I shouldn't be so fast criticize bringing in veterans, but when i talk to fans around here people always clamour for the old guys to come back. THis country LOVES basketball, all the young people in Taipie love it, it is clearly the number one sport. Somehow, someway I just want to see that get turned into actual ballers.

    To Reamily, Q definitely covers up a lot of issues on this team. Him and Tseng are relied on so heavily

    The Universiade 2017 NT has better sets and discipline compared to what we saw in the Asia Cup. The main difference? A foreign coach in Charlie Parker, who actually knows how to conduct drills to instill a cohesive mentality. Chou Jun-San was more of a free-flowing style of coach to be honest.

    9 TPE players in the CBA so far. Would be interesting if all of them would be called to the NT come November and so forth. Most important are Liu Cheng, Chen Ying-Chun, Chou Yi-Hsiang and Hu Long-Mao. Vets like Wen-Ting and Chih-Chieh are more of a second priority now but still would be great if they get their release.
