Next year's Fiba Asian Championship will be really wide and open to many possible final standings.

my opinion

Spot 1
Lebanon , China , Iran

Spot 2
Jordan , Qatar , South korea

Spot 3
Philippines , Japan

Philippines could improve to Spot 2 , it depends on their team and the new additions!

Jordan really disappointed. They have the talent but they are not getting the wins, but hopefully, they give a good show in Turkey. And a suprise to some, Iraq. They looked very competitive and beat a good Syrian team. Iraq could be a sleeper in 2011 but with this showing, I do not think they will shock anyone now.

lebanon is in class A. in 2009 we showed that we're the same level like china
and we were going to beat them if the referee didn't interfer.

in 2011 we will win asia in beirut and qualify for the olympics

And in 2009 we showed that we are in the same level of Iran who beaten China hard , So a bad Stankovich Cup won't make us 4th level :D

These Judges are pathetic to be honest and has two options : 1-Hatred or jealousy 2- No Basketball Vision with all my respect

Every team has it's ups and downs and am sure that Jordan will impress in World Championship , not talking about wins but playing nice basketball

The South Korean NT are very elusive in preparation for the Asian Games. Training in the USA and closed door scrimmages with NCAA Division I and Division II Schools.

I guess they don't want to be scouted.

I'd put Lebanon in Class A without question. They are a competitive side and the last 2 FIBA-Asia Champs. prove it. I'd move Qatar into B becuase of Ngombo's play but the fact they were unable to beat Lebanon, unable to close out Japan, and beat the Philippines twice, albeit close, puts them below class A. Philippines, Jordan (for lack of performance we all expect), and Japan in Group C.

Totally logic, we have to not overrate teams.. be realistic.. my opinion:

1- China - I saw china in stankovic and it was better than Iran - it has world class level.. Still #1 in Asia
2- Iran - except if Lebanon beats them in the incoming matches
3- Lebanon
4-5-Qatar/Philipine - qatar is way better than Philippine
6- Jordan - was very disappointing team - become old team
7-8- Korea/Japan
9- Taiwan
and below those teams come mediocre teams

come 2011, if God permits, we'll have a complete and fierce lineup. Lebanon and qatar can BAREly beat our undermanned lineup. how much more if it's complete + PBA reinforcements?

i love it when we're being treated as the underdogs.

biggest threat for all teams is KOREA. elusive and silent.

BTW, is Ghazir the best Stadium in Beirut? -_-.....

we have 5 Arenas like that in Manila and hundreds more throughout the country. and the capacity is just 5000?

you have everything :D:D
Our stadiums are not really big cz we r not used to host big tournaments , plus we r a small country.
The biggest stadium in Lebanon is Sports City Complex.

For Smart Gilas , they might have played very well against Middle Eastern teams but they didn't do well against East Asian teams so you have a long way yet .

Pare, u can't compare apples to oranges :D
Lebanon is a small country (Our population is 4 million while yours is close to 92 million; 23 times as much as Lebanon). A 5000 stadium in Lebanon is considered as really good while in Philippines it will be small.

Our largest stadium, i believe can fit 7,000 which is the Sports City Complex "Madine Al Riyadieh" in Beirut.

yes youre right about the east asian teams but still even we are familiar(as some say) to middle east game I still rank the team arguably in top 8 and have chance to be toppled out of quarters if kazakhstan,taiwan play their cards its still ambitious that if we want to have a shot on the olympic slot we must flirt with the top 4 before fiba asia

I just saw China play Puerto Rico and they don't look impressive...this year's squad looks to be a rebuilding one and without Yao Ming. In the Stankovic Cup, Iran looked to be playing a mix A/B team, not full strength from what I believe. Also, Iran beat China last year in FIBA-Asia, I'd say Iran right now is the better team, but not by much. If anything, its 1A and 1B for the moment.

I forgot. Lebanon is a small country. haha. silly me. I doubt the arena's capacity, I don't doubt its quality though.

and about us not being used to play against Eastern teams, I totally agree with that. However the Nat'l fed already signed up to join the Asian Basketball Association Invitational in China. Will be playing against teams from the CBA, KBL, SBL and Iran.

FROM LEBANON TO CHINA?
Aug 18, 2010 (by Maarouf Mawloud)
By: FAISSAL KALAAWI

The main reason why the Asian championship in 2011 might change its setting as in place precisely is that china assured that center star Yao Ming will not be playing in the squad. So after the hard work of Lebanon to get it. It might be gone in a splash because of the popularity or better ranking!!
Isn't it enough that china held the Asian tournament last year (2009), now because of no specific or no clear reason it has to be in the same place? Isnt it enough that we saw one of the worse Asian tournaments? Whether in the bad referring or in how all countries were far from the hotel except the host?!...
Lebanon has showed after they hosted Stancovic cup that they are more than responsible to hold and host any event. All the teams were respected on a high note more than 4 international televisions were broadcasting
These traits unfortunately were lacked in last years Asian championship and were in a very big standard in this small event, so how will it be in a bigger one and hopefully FIBA-ASIAN CHAMPIONSHIP 2011 WILL BE HELD IN LEBANON BEIRUT, and no one will REGRET

Regadless of the authenticity of this article is. It entirely depends on the stability of Lebanon, as far as I know the recent continuous and tight relationship between Lebanon and Iseral could ruin this tournament. No offense to my Lebanonese friends a tournament should be host by a stable country, in any aspect China could be a better choice :)

Pengyou, Lebanon hasn't hosted such an event before (except now for the Borislav Stankovic tournament) so we deserve to host it.

I can understand what u r saying but if the Asian Championship will not take place in Lebanon due to whatever circumstances then why China again? China hosted it in 2009 and other countries such as Philippines for example haven't hosted such a tournament for a really long time and they deserve to host it more than China in my opinion. Xie xie

China/Iran levels are close.. it s up if some players like haddadi plays or not.. I am totally with you, Iran might be better, Iran system is fast and efficient. But thats what I saw in Stankovic.. Let s see ..

Yao Ming is coming back from injury at the end of this year... if he will be like before level , I assume china would be unbeatable..

hi there wilo22. if i am not mistaken, it was Tokushima, Japan in 2007. But regardless, it is still unfair if another East Asian, and consecutive country at that would host this one. It's due time Lebanon be given the chance to host, their fans are awesome.

Woooooohooooooo !! GO GO LEBANON !
We Deserve it more than any other country in Asia !! second favourite host could be the Philipines !

Long Live Lebanon !! (Except All the Politicians!!)

I'd say it should stay in Lebanon... if FIBA wants Lebanon to upgrade their stadiums then have it in Lebanon to generate money for future upgrades... traditional FIBA Asia members (except the Philippines) have been sharing in hosting major tournaments for a long time now... time to spread out and give others a chance...

China/Iran levels are close.. it s up if some players like haddadi plays or not.. I am totally with you, Iran might be better, Iran system is fast and efficient. But thats what I saw in Stankovic.. Let s see ..

Yao Ming is coming back from injury at the end of this year... if he will be like before level , I assume china would be unbeatable..

Well, Yao already says his playing days for the china NT is pretty much over.

That said, i agree with most of what you said. I am not a fan of how China's NT is playing right now, and if they continue with this type of sloppy play then our ranking could fall.

I believe China will still be the top team in the 2011 Asia Championship game, and looks like Iran & Lebanon has the bigger chance to beat China. Jordan may also got a little possibility to challenge China, the rest teams i just can't see any chance at moment.
The rest teams can't beat China, but that doesn't mean they can't beat Iran Lebanon or Jordan. If Taiwan Qatar South-Korea Philippine Japan send all their best players to the 2011 Asia Championship game, then I think between Iran Jordan Lebanon Taiwan Qatar South-Korea Philippine Japan are all got very high possible chances to beat each other. :D:D:D

I doubt even the Pinoy members will agree with you on this. I personally think it's more around 75-80% but that will depend whether Marcus Douthit (their naturalized player) gets his paperwork finished on time and whether the great PBA players Sol Mercado and Chris Lutz (also finalize their joining of Smart Gilas).
So far Asi Taulava and Kelly Williams are confirmed on the team.

Now let us analyse the situation:

- China's court are in better condition. However if we host the tournament in pierre el gemayel court it would be great.

- Lebanon has a bigger fan base. Philippines has fans in lebanon as well as some other countries like syria, jordan ...

- If we are talking about respect well when lebanon went to china we faced a lot of problems as i heard. Which means china aint better than us at all.

I hope lebanon will host this tournament.

I am saddened with the current developments, I could not understand the reason being given by FIBA-Asia to take away the hosting of the 2011 FIBA-Asia Championship from Beirut. From the standpoint of the Philippine team which played at the FIBA-Asia Stankovic Cup, they were satisfied with everything. And we find the Lebanese as very fair hosts who really respect the game of Basketball.

I am just wondering what is the stand of the Fédération Libanaise de Basketball (FLB) and the West Asia Basketball Association (WABA) with this sudden change of mind by the FIBA-Asia officials.Did they make an appeal?

Are we all Asians powerless and would it be China again hosting another major FIBA-Asia tournament? Why is it always them, are all other countries really not that good enough? Are the standards raised so high other countries who are not as wealthy have no chance of being hosts?

the reason to take away the hosting of the Fiba Asia from Beirut is the departure of former FLB president Pierre kakhia who was resigned from his position in June.
Kakhia had a great relationships with the Asian football and basketball federations since he is a partner in a big business with them , and now when a new federation was appointed , we started to hear threats to take away the host although Stankovic were very succefull on many side , this tournament is considered very secondary but in Lebanon it got many Tvs broadcasting and a huge Lebanese fanbase , not to forget the Filippinos whom also were numerous.

Now 2 weaknesses have been marked , the first one is the traffic which is very hot in Lebanon during the summer bcz a lot of touristes and Lebanese expats came to visit our country and the stupid federation has chose a bad location which is beirut / Commodore 5 stars hotel , a little far from the court which has gotten some objections but this could be easily solved .

Next thing is the court , yes the court is not very good and it was used bcz our big stadium needed some renovations and our dear federation couldnt notice that until few months but again our Lebanese NT players told me that the hotel in China were horrible and 3 stars , why no one opened his mouth ??? but when it comes to Lebanon , everyone wants to point out abt things.

Again , Lebanon hosted AFC 2000 and it was one of the most succesfull tournaments and we r able to host big tournaments !

Mr. Basketball
12-26-2010, 06:16 PM
Why do you think that Coach Bill Harris left afteronly 2 months, has the NBA India found a replacement?

Bill Harris left after two months because he never had any intention of staying longer. Even when he took the job in October, he immediately announced his contract was up December 1st. He spent over 20 years coaching at Wheaton College, an NAIA college in the Midwest, before retiring a few years back. Then his friend Troy Justice, the head of 'NBA India,' called and offered him the job.

To say he coached the National Team of the second most populated country in the world is something I think attracted him. In addition to that he was given a nice compensation package to come coach the team.

The problem was that his base was Chennai, India, which is about as different from the Midwestern USA as can be. In addition he was unable to communicate with his players due to language problems. Imagine a folsky Midwest coach trying to use his jargon with a group of Indians who dont understand him. Also he didnt take to south indian cuisine and lost about 10 pounds. Plus hes an older coach with his entire family back home.

Maybe the other reason he left is that he saw theres little chance to compete internationally. Early on in his tenure, he compared his National Team player's grasp of the fundamentals to "11 year olds in the USA."

Official word is that NBA India is looking for a suitable replacement, but since the national team doesnt train year round, theyll probably wait until a few months before the south asia qualifier and then bring someone in.

Coaching India's Team all Fun and Games for Harris
