    Default Lebanon National Team - 2017

    Fadi El Khatibi announces his return to Lebanon national team http://www.fiba.com/news/fadi-el-kha...-national-team

    Concerning the new coach? Nothing is yet official, but Joe Moujaes will be most likely the next coach

    Actually he is not Fadi El Khatibi. He is Fadi Khatibian. He plays for Homenetmen. LOL

    terrible roster, when you still rely on ali mahmoud and fadi el khatib at their ages. We need to remove the 3 import rule as soon as possible, because there is no talent coming out apart from Wael Arakji , whose the best upcoming lebanese player but vastly overrated.

    My team for Fiba Asia 2017 :

    starting 5 :

    Arakji (if he's able to be here) / Mezher
    Jean Abdelnour or Ahmad Ibrahim
    El Khatib
    Naturalized player (someone like Vroman who can play the position 4 and 5)
    Khazzouh

    Coach : Abbaz/Vucinic/Zouros/
    Or bring back Baldwin

    are the lebanese dont feel their players being "held" back by Baldwin style, he handled a team whose talent can beat nz and australia (seriously), and he do have a powerful sagesse lineup in flb
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    I really do think also that we can match up with every NT in Asia but we have to do things right !

    In my opinion what I'm feeling is that we f*cked up by let Baldwin go ! He's the best NT coach we ever had !

    I respect the Lebanese coaches but we can't pick one of them. I prefer pick a foreign coach without El Khatib in the line-up instead of having a Lebanese coach with El Khatib.
    Basketball is a team sport ! You can't rely on 1 player and that's the main problem of our lebanese coaches ! Their strategy is "give the ball to El Khatib and give him space".

    So to become Asia's Best : 1) have a foreign coach who knows our league that's why I named Vucinic (plus he knows the international level, he was NZ coach)
    2) Naturalized a 4/5 position not a 2 like the last fiba asia edition ! We have a lot of 2/3 position players
    3) Play friendly games against European teams --> Training camp
    4) Participate in Jones cup is a MUST --> the only time we can play against East Asian teams
    5) For God sake call Khazzouh
    6) Arakji must be fit or we'll have a problem on the position 1
