2011 Asia Championships is going to be held in WuHan,China

Welcome to my hometown city ,and welcome to China

Sorry to Lebanon friends , thats a decision made by FIBA Asia just now.

I do think the AC be hold in Wuhan will definitely far more better than you see the AC in TianJin 2009

the convenient public transportation which impressed the commissioner so much

The professional basketball fans here and hospitable locals and the best volunteers and broadcast as well as the press here.

This is totally unfair guys !
First of all, why did FIBA-Asia take the AC away from Lebanon ?
Second thing, why China ? I mean China was the hosting country of AC-2009
Is China the only country in Asia? There are about 55 countries in Asia !!!

i don't blame the fact that the asian federation is corrupted, i blame the "asses" that are running the game in Lebanon.

They took this decision cz they know that if it was held in Lebanon, Lebanon will kick the asses of all the teams.

It may have something to do with the fact that the FIBA officials were not happy with the hosting of the Stankovic Cup in Beirut.

I'm not surprised... There's nothing we can do other than seriously preparing for hosting 2013 and by seriously preparing I mean seriously preparing :D (have an official agenda with scheduled working plan, plan for improving our courts (even if it means building new ones or upgrading the old ones to international standard), improving logistics (transportation and parking), etc..

The Philippines has to host the 2011 FIBA-Asia Men's Championship! (http://servssports.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/undefeated-at-home/) China has already hosted the said event three times in the last decade -- Shanghai 2001, Harbin 2003 and Tianjin 2009.

as much as i hate to see the AC in the same country back to back. how many of those asian countries can seriously say they have the money, resources, and manpower to put on a good show/image with modern descent facilities in which safety can be ensured? i cant say not a lot for other asian countries.

look i wouldnt want it in china also but i can only think of china, korea, japan malaysia, hell even tiny singapore could host it a lot better the rich oil laden middle east countries could also host it.

and there is no way philippines coudl host it seeing the fact chiense always hold onto grudges fro quite sometime and with what happened this year with those chinese tourists even though they were people from hong kong, im sure left a bad taste for many chinese...and that would hurt sports revenue... think about it who seriously has moeny these days to splash on things during sporting events in asia...besides a few asian countries. china has a damn lot of new rich. throwing money like it was a rap video.

i swear the new rich in china have got cash like no other, they should be making rap videos with big booty ho's! oh!

wuhan is a pretty good city too its girls are fine and hot. but the girls from chengdu and chongqing are a whole lot finer..

The Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) confirmed on Thursday that the 2011 FIBA Asian Men’s championships will be hosted at Wuhan, Hubei Province on Sept. 15-25.

Li Jinsheng, vice president of CBA, said he was informed the news on Wednesday after an executive meeting of the Asian Basketball Federation in Malaysia, which was attended by CBA vice president Xin Lancheng and other officials.

“Wuhan is fully ready to host the competition,” said Li, who accompanied FIBA officials to inspect Wuhan in 2010.

The Asian championships will serve as the qualification of the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Several cities had bid to host the event, including cities of Lebanon, South Korea and China.

The women’s edition will be hosted at Japan on Aug. 21-28.

I do hope the lebanese officials and the other countries as well would go to the CAS.

Ballhogging all the events is too much. As if the Asiad, Olympics, Tianjin and NBA exhibition games were enough.

Bad for the sport though. I thought FIBA's aim in Asia is to make the sport more popular. Them choosing China over other countries it's stupid.

Both the players and spectators are going to be indoor, and I'm sure the arena has an AC system.
China is a vast country and another city with a better climate for that time of the year could have hosted the event (besides, Wuhan isn't much hotter than Tianjin, which hosted the last event)

The problem with holding the event in September is that school and practice has started for NCAA players and this is a bit problematic for some teams (Iran, Lebanon,...), because they can't have their players around for that long for the practice/main event.

Most of our college players have already graduated so I guess the players' availability is at minimum

he's actually practicing/playing with the team since May. I think he's currently on vacation in the US and will be back after the holidays.

It's Banchero and Stanhardinger who are pending.

I would have wanted to see Kazemi, the guy who dunked over Rudy Gay. Do hope we see him in the Championships

The most neutral country is Singapore.. Not because I live there now:D... But because its a progressive country which is ideal for international sporting events.. There is less traffic, has a decent national stadium (although only one) to hold the venue, facilities, etc... I mean if it cant be the Philippines, then at least have Singapore be the first SEA nation to host the event since I dont know when... I mean just look at the last Youth Olympics, and see how successful it was particularly the FIBA 33, wherein the games are always packed with spectators...

They wont have problems with getting fans in the seats either.. There is a sizeable Filipino and Chinese community... Plus a number of foreign nationals from the Middle East and India...I mean the country is a melting pot of different nationalities..And you can be sure that Star Sports will cover the event since the channel is based here in Singapore...But really, its not because of selfish reason on why I wanted to be staged in Singapore.:D.

Hey Guyz let's stop talking about the AC Hosting
Let's start predicting who will win the AC next year

This is my prediction

CHAMPIONS
Either China,Iran,Korea or Lebanon

Mr. Basketball
12-28-2010, 06:16 AM
india wont host anytime soon ... to understand why india is so behind in fiba asia ... they were going to build finally build a modern indoor basketball stadium in delhi, the bfi even announced it in a press conference, said they would be using it as their 'National Basketball Academy.'
“The blue print for the stadium is ready and the work order has been given. The construction will begin by the July first week,” BFI Sec-General Harish Sharma said.
Then the Delhi high court and Indian Supreme Court declared the construction 'illegal' on the grounds that "the proposed indoor stadium would require installation of a 100-tonne AC plant, which would be hazardous for the environment." So it was demolished one week into construction.

AC Predictions: if all teams go at full strength, I think Iran might have the edge on China with Yao out .. Lebanon, Korea, Japan, Qatar, and Philippines

at the asian games Iran was without their top three players and only lost to host China in the semifinal by blowing the lead in the final minute.

2nd tier
South Korea(can pull off a surprise and get into finals),Jordan and Philippines

3rd tier
Japan,Taiwan and Qatar

Are they sending a team stronger than the one in the Asian Games? Because if they send the same team, it will be a bad showing. The 40-point loss to Korea was too much.

I agree that Iran has the best chances. They almost beat China in the Asian games without Haddadi and Samad. This really shows how the national team program of Iran is really strong.

Any new faces for Lebanon?

No Jordan team will have a better team,some of their experienced players weren't playing at the Asiad such as Sam Daghlas,Moussa Al Awadi,Zaid Abbas... but i dont think their team in 2011 will be that good, Rasheim Wright has clearly stated that whether his old team Zain pays him the rest of the money they still owe him or he won't be back to Jordan, Zaid El khas and Ayman Idais has retired from the NT and i dont see any young strong faces coming off the scene.

For Lebanon, there will surely be new blood in the team :)

i believe the team lebanon sent to the asian games was basically their B or C team, which explains why they were crushed by china and korea.

qatar is the most inconsistent team, they can look great one game, and terrible the next, 22 point loss to philippines and a 42 point loss to iran at asian games with their full NT team...maybe qatar basketball federation should expand outside of africa to import their NT players...theyre not getting their money's worth...but qatar has so much money they probably dont care.

We Have Sent our (C) Team not even (B) Team btw ;) Only Ali Jamal & Fadel Najjar from (A) Team played in Asiad and Fadel is the King of Bench in the (A) Team !

About Rasheim what you mentioned is totally wrong , Rasheim is the one who owes Money for Zain Club , the club paid the Penalty clause when he escaped from Beykoz Club in Turkey ! it was like 30000$ .

Zaid Alkhas did not retire at all , only Ayman Idais retired from the NT and the Federation will bring him back as he is still fit and can make the difference on 5 .

Our 2011 National Team will look like this : Sam Daghlas (Best Point Guard in China right now) , Zaid Abbaas , Wesam Sous , Mousa Awadi (Best youngster in Jordan) , Mahmoud Abdeen , Mohammad Hamdan , Ayman Idais , Ali Jamal (shined in Asian Games) , Abdullah Abo Koura , Islam Abbas + May be Abroads like Imad Qahwash (NCAA) , Jamal Abu Shamala (D-League) , Layth Mansour (NCAA) , Nicola Fadayel (Canada) , Camille Gargour (High School in USA)

wuhan is a pretty good city too its girls are fine and hot. but the girls from chengdu and chongqing are a whole lot finer..Wuhan is my second home and it really is a terrible (but really large) city, very dirty and disorderly. But things could change very swiftly given how efficient Chinese government seems to be if they care. I was just in Guangzhou where they hosted the AG and the Para Asian Games and I've got to say I was really impressed. The city looked beautiful all around.

BTW Phantim I was just in Beijing for the first time in a decade and the traffic was killing over there. Drank a lot of erguotou on the subway though, that thing is good :D

hope Fadi be our Captain and leader in this champ ,he s saying until this moment he will not be with the NT (1st if baldwin out he s in ) and secondly he want youth players to play this type of championship ,Hope Fadi be with us ,he s a huge player can do it all in the court with Matt and Fahed and Abdel nour ,specially that Abdel Nour is performing very very well ,in the league and outside scoring 20 ppg and rebounds and everything i think abdel nour will be the next Khatib after khatib retire


So Fadi has issues with Tab Baldwin... you guys should groom Fadi into a playing-coach for the NT and then when he retires to full-time head coach.. it would be good addition to his distinguished career:)..

gulf zone will have 3 qatar through stankovic cup and another 2 slots
west asia will have 4 lebanon and iran through stankovic cup and another 2 slots maybe jordan and syria
middle asia will have 2 slots

We can't keep letting Fadi take control of the team and do what is just suitable for him. If he has issues with coach Tab tough luck... let him be the one making sacrifices for the team and not everyone else doing what he wants.
I also don't believe Fadi would make a good coach (personal opinion).
Sooner or later we need to move forward and start looking at the future of the Lebanese NT or else we will be going through a very tough transition period once Fadi, Rony, Ali etc... officially retire from the NT.

My Predictions for the upcoming 2011 FIBA ASIA Championships

IRAN-Since they are the defending champions they want to show
to Asia that they are the new powerhouse of basketball in this region.

LEBANON-This team still has a big chance of winning the tournament if El khatib will back on the NT

CHINA-Even w/out YAO the title is still near for them.They show it last 2010 Asian Games,but they are beatable now compared before.

SOUTHKOREA-I Think they are also strong hiring lenny wilkens as one of
their team consultant they can be dangerous at all time

JORDAN- If they finish the problems from their federation they are still one of the tough team to beat.

I think Khatib will solve this problem and play this championship ,he s doing with champville a great work as he s a 25 years old ,always a king he s unstoppable a scoring machine and leading champville for wins ...
As For Jax most of Lebanese and Baldwin himself said that Jax is a big player but not for our NT we need a pure C and all people are giving names but the most well known is Darryl Watkins he s a very good C a pure C ,a beast under the basket (Foul or a basket ) this is watkins the Sagessian Player and jump very high he s very good ,but in my opinion we should let Vroman stay in our NT he s great for us , also there will be for sure new players in our NT like Daniel who was out in the world cup and mazen mnemneih

i think in Asia 2011 Lebanese Team is the most powerful team a full team specially that this team is stronger than the NT who was in turkey ...specially with : Abdel Nour who s performing really well ,he s top player and leading riyadi for winning and in my opinion he s in this time better than Khatib and he s the best lebanese player in this time ,
Mazen Mneimneh is back ,he s very good very systematic and play great deffence
Matt who s back from injury he will be a big plus and add for us
the back of Daniel Faris our Best Center this player have a lot of skills ,he s the best lebanese Center
and finally the squad will be a fight between Rodrick Akl and Miguel Martinez specially that Rony Fahed and Ali Mahmoud are for sure in The roster ,Rod and Migo are performing really well ,Rod is leading his team and managing ANibal in a very good way on the court ,And miguel (SpiderMan :rolleyes: :p )is doing a great job on the court...
As for the others ,Ghaleb Rida shoud be for Sure with the squad he s performing in the league very well also and always be the best lebanese scorer in his team and always being the player that stopped the Foreingners Stars Scorers ,he s great
As for Elie Estephan he shoud be out of The NT , he s injured and i dont think Baldwin will take him
Restom will be with the Team ,he s a Role player and can do a great work in deffence and rebounding and also scoring ,he s slasher
As for Kannan he s 100 % in NT

So our Roster will be in this way :

1-Ali Mahmoud on the guard position specially that Roni is a shooting guard we need a pure point Guard
2-For Sure this position is secured for Our Tiger and Legend Al Khatib
3-JEAN ABDEL NOUR
4-Daniel Faris (or Jax if he s statying)
5-Watkins (or Daniel if Jax stay)

take a look on our Bench wowwwww:

Matt Freijiee
Roni Fahed
Ghaleb Rida
Elie Restom
Mazen Mneimneh
Rod /Miguel
Kannan

I see your point.. I hope he and Tab can compromise.. and yeah, great players doesn't always make a great coach...

The senior players could at least serve as mentor.. maybe as part of the pool and train with the young guns but willing to give way once the final line-up is name.. but thats just my opinion..

Ahmad Ibrahim will not join the nt because he has to prepare for his first year of college
Mazen Mneimneh and Daniel Faris will most probably rejoin the nt this summer
Billy Pharis papers are done
Rony Fahed announced his retirement from the nt
Fady El Khatib said that he won't join the nt if baldwin is the coach
Most probably Vroman will be replaced by a pure 5:confused:

FIBA held a press conference in Wuhan today, and announced some details of the games. All I know is China and Lebanon (Stankovic Cup) are the only 2 teams qualified as of today. (I guess Iran hasn't qualified per FIBA.)

FIBA also announced that Wuhan allocated around 10 million Yuan (>US$1.5 million) to the event, and 600,000 volunteers have already been recruited by the city. Of course, the other bidders who hoped bread fall from the sky can continue blame corruption and conspiracy.

I'm contemplating (even though it's still a primitive thought) of going there to watch the games but I read that you didn't have many positive things to say about Wuhan... Is it that bad? Or just not as good as some of the other cities like Guangdong as you previously mentioned?

OT: I would be more excited to meet Liu Yi Fei who I remember is from Wuhan than going to watch the Asian Championships though :D.
Also would love to meet up with Na Li, from Wuhan, who just qualified to the finals of the Australian Open :eek:!!

PR 01 / 2011 – Wuhan to host 26th FIBA Asia Championship

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia: Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province in China has been awarded the right to host the prestigious 26th FIBA Asia Championship.

The 26th FIBA Asia Championship, which will also identify the team to represent FIBA Asia in the 2012 London Olympics, will be played from Sept 15-25, 2011.

The champion team from the 26th FIBA Asia Championship will earn a direct entry to the 2012 London Olympics with the two teams that follow making it to the FIBA Olympic Qualifying tournament.

The 26th FIBA Asia Championship will be the fifth instance when China will host this all-important Championship.

Beijing (1989), Shanghai (2001), Harbin (2003) and most recently Tianjin (2009) are the Chinese cities which have hosted the FIBA Asia Championship earlier.

The Championship will feature 16 top teams from FIBA Asia, with Lebanon, the champions of the 3rd FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup and China as hosts having already qualified. The rest of the fray will be decided from a series of qualifying events from the five FIBA Asia subzones.

“China have a rich history of successfully hosting international sport events. The Olympics in 2008 and more recently the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou (in December 2010) are examples for such instances. Therefore, we fully convinced this time too China will turn out to wonderful hosts for such an important event,” said FIBA Asia president Sheikh Saud Ali Al-Thani.

“We have two important events, both of them Olympic qualifiers. And we have found excellent hosts for both the events,” added Sheikh Saud referring to the 24th FIBA Asia Championship for Women to be hosted by Japan at Omura-Nagasaki from Aug 21-28, 2011.

“There can be few better organizers of international basketball events as the Chinese Basketball Association,” said FIBA Asia Secretary General Dato’ Yeoh Choo Hock.

“The technical excellence of the CBA and China in general during the Asian Games was amazing. For the first time, we had games in four different venues and we had not even a single complaint from any team. That goes to show how impeccable China can organize events,” added Dato’ Yeoh.

The complete calendar of FIBA Asia events for 2011 will be announced very soon.

FIBA Asia will run special event websites with latest updated of news, photos, statistics and other event related information for all the events.

So, what happened to the other Top 5 Stankovic Cup finishers?:confused:

Those finishers earned an extra spot for their zone in the upcomong FIBA-Asia Championship.
Lebanon, by winning, has qualified for China.
Japan = + 1 spot for East Asia
Qatar = + 1 for Gulf
Philippines = + 1 for SEABA
Jordan = + 1 for WABA

So with that,
East Asia = host (China) + 2 qualifiers + 1 extra for Japan's finish in Asia Stankovic
Gulf = 2 qualifiers + 1 extra for Qatar's finish....Qatar, UAE, Bahrain all qualified to FIBA-Asia by virtue of finishing top 3 in the 12th Gulf Basketball Championship
SEABA = 2 qualifiers + 1 extra for Philippines finish
WABA = Stankovic champion (Lebanon), + 2 qualifiers, + 1 extra for Jordan's finish
Middle Asia = 2 qualifiers

SEABA = 2 qualifiers + 1 extra for Philippines finish
WABA = Stankovic champion (Lebanon), + 2 qualifiers, + 1 extra for Jordan's finish
Middle Asia = 2 qualifiers

I like this format... granting more than one automatic slots to the Asian Champs by making to the FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup play-offs is just wrong.. the last Asian Champs said it all... Chinese Taipei almost missed out simply because some low-tier countries automatically qualifies due to their play-off finish in the FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup..

Its degrading the regional qualifiers and its unfair to the regions where most of the participants are potential contenders (e.g. East Asia)... if the Philippines automatically qualifies and then did not participate in SEABA because of the automatic qualification.. its unfair for the eventual winner of SEABA to claim they are the region's champion knowing the best team did not compete..

Teams should earn their slot to the Asian Champs through (sub)regional qualifiers just as teams earn their slot to the Olympics by winning the zonal championship.. Lebanon, by winning the FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup, earned that automatic slot (for the Asian Champs) by winning the said tournament.. but other teams since they failed in that tourney must earn their slots in their regional qualifiers...

I am a bit confused, I was reading that only 1 team from Asia qualifies for the 2012 London Olympics, 1 team from Africa, 2 from america, 2 from Europe, 1 from Oceana, the host nation (GB), the world champion (US), that makes it 9, what about the remaining 3 ? are they from random continents or Asia have a specific slow ???

Don't you remember the Olympics pre-qualification tournament that took place in Greece in 2008 which Lebanon played in and we got royally screwed by Greece and Brazil :D?

So this event will happen again next summer....

As for the Olympics pre-qualifying tournament this is which teams get to play in it:


Qualification via the wildcard tournament

The additional three teams will be determined at the FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament 2008, with the best non-qualifying teams participating from teams that did not qualify outright. Each zone is allocated with the following berths:

FIBA Africa: 2 teams
FIBA Americas: 3 teams
FIBA Asia: 2 teams
FIBA Europe: 4 teams
FIBA Oceania: 1 team

Qualifying for 2012 Olympics is our top priority: Veselin Matic


TEHRAN – Iran’s basketball coach Veselin Matic has said that qualifying for the 2012 London Olympics is his top priority.

The 2011 FIBA Asia Championship for Men is the qualifying tournament for FIBA Asia at the men's basketball tournament of the 2012 Olympics in London, England. The tournament will be held in 2011 at Wuhan, Hubei, China.

“We are going to defend our title in the competitions, but it’s not our priority. Reserving a seat in the 2012 Olympics is our main concern. The champion of the competition will go straight to the Olympic Games and the second and third teams will partake in the qualifications,” Matic said.

“Playing in the 2010 FIBA World Championship with participation of 24 teams was a great opportunity for us to play against the powerful teams. But, Olympics look more difficult because only the 12 best teams will participate in the prestigious event. Iran took part in the 2008 Olympic Games and we are trying to make to the competitions once again,” the 51-year-old said.

Iran’s Hamed Haddadi is no longer Memphis Grizzlies player as his contract has expired with the NBA team.

The Serbian said, “Grizzlies have good centers and I think Hamed needed to work harder. He was not called to play for Grizzlies but showed a good performance every time he came off the bench. I like that he joins Iran’s Mahram basketball team in the Asian Club Championship because it can help him to get ready for the Asian championship,” Matic added

how come Fiba doesn't organize a similar tourney for World Championship hopefuls, from what I remember they just pick out teams in the recent Championships for wild card teams.

They should... I don't think paying 500,000$, previous results, and showing to FIBA that your country really loves basketball should be used as a standard for qualifying to the World Championships as a wild card team...

Only issue though is that in the World Championships there are 20 teams that can automatically qualify through their respective continental championships so which teams will be considered to play for the wild cards? The level of the tournament won't be that high imo...

In the Olympics it's different since only 7 teams directly qualify+host (1)+Defending World Champions (1) so you can easily have a pre-Olympics tournament to select the 3 other teams that will qualify.

FIBA ASIA - Two places left for Wuhan

WUHAN (FIBA Asia Championship) - With the completion of the sub-zone competitions in WABA and SEABA, 14 of the 16 teams in the field for this year’s FIBA Asia Championship have been identified.

The FIBA Asia Championship is a qualifying event for next year's London Games.

The winners automatically book their place into the 12-team field of the Men's Olympic Basketball Tournament.

Teams that finish second and third will compete into the Olympic Qualifying Tournament where three places for the Basketball Tournament are on offer.

With 14 of the 16 teams known, the next step for the FIBA Asia Championship is the draw, which will take place on 6 July.

The two remaining places will be filled once the qualifying process for the zone of Middle Asia comes to a close.

Uzbekistan will host Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan as the four teams attempt to win the sole qualifying berth from the ‘Stans’ section of the Middle Asia sub-zone.

Indian capital New Delhi will host the SAARC teams from 13 to 15 July in order to identify the other team to qualify from Middle Asia.

The FIBA Asia Champonship will take place in Wuhan, China from 15 to 25 September and feature the top 16 teams from the five different FIBA Asia sub-zones.

Hosts China and Lebanon - as winners of the 3rd FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup in Beirut last year - qualified automatically for the FIBA Asia Championship

14 teams qualified for FIBA Asia Championship
Direct qualification: China, Lebanon
East: Korea, Japan, Chinese Taipei
SEABA: Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia
Middle: One team on 1 July; One team on 4 August
Gulf: Qatar, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
WABA: Iran, Jordan, Syria

Afghanistan would have a pretty good chance against India but probably thanks to Sri Lanki Middle Asia president, India gets practically a bye to qualify as they wouldnt have a chance against Kazakhstan and would have to fight Afghanistan for a spot in Wuhan...someone is really interested to push India's basketball and NBA is also after that...you do the math.

Newest and most shocking update from Kazakhstan

Казахстанская баскетбольная дружина не будет участвовать в отборочном турнире чемпионата Азии в узбекском Навои с 28 июля по 4 августа. А скандал вокруг тренерского штаба мужской сборной по баскетболу (см. “Тренера - в корзину?”, “Время” от 25.06.2011г.) получил свое продолжение.
Translation:

Kazakhstan basketball squad will not participate in the qualifying tournament of Asia in Uzbekistan Navoi from July 28 to August 4. A scandal surrounding the men's coaching staff basketball team (see "Coaches - in the trash?", "Time" from 25.06.2011g.) Won its continuation.

Disappointing developments...expecially from a squad only 4 years removed from placing 4th in Asia and having one of Asia's most promising young stars in Anton Ponomarev.

Translation of website (google translate)

From 28 July to 4 August in Navoi Uzbek qualifier will be the Asian championship in basketball among men's teams. In addition to its team of Kazakhstan made by the masters competition, Kyrgyz, Tajiks, Turkmens and Afghans. However, it is not known, under whose leadership will play our team. Its steering Vadim Burak (which is also a mentor and BC "Barcelona" from Atyrau) no longer receives a salary as head coach of the Republic of Kazakhstan and is going to abandon this position if the issue is not resolved in the near future.

- De facto, I still coach a major command of the country, - says Vadim. - From these duties I have as long as no one is exempted. So a few days ago I sent a letter to the Basketball Federation of Republic of Kazakhstan with a plan to prepare our team for Asian championship selection. But I am concerned about the conditions under which I will be working in the team? Previously, I paid the salary as head coach in the Atyrau Basketball Federation. But recently she broke an agreement with the National Federation.

- Why?
- By Sergey Shmakov had a hand in charge of the work of the International Department of the Basketball Federation (FB) RK. Wrote about this in your newspaper (see "Do not keep your eggs in one basket," "The Fifth foul for the team," "Time" from 24.08 and 20.10.2010), and other media. The new agreement is to me no one has offered.

- What are your next steps?
- I talked about participation in team selection for the championship of Asia with the gostrenerom Kosyakova Eugene, who said money for the trip will be in Navoi. But since no human relationship with Mr. Shmakov have long gone, I can not just call him and ask what to do. Therefore, it remains to wait for the National Federation of the official answer for his signature. If in the near future will not receive any information that will leave the team.

We were asked to comment on the situation of the Eugene Kosyakova.
- These events have appeared in the schedule at the last moment - he said. - The money for this trip highlights DSHNK (full-time management of national teams committee on sport Mintursporta RK. - MV) Price question - 2.5 mln. But who will carry Kazakh squad, and in which part - is still unknown. I only know that Mr. Burak is going to leave the team. The national federation has no money DSHNK not able to draw the amount that was voiced to us by Mr. Burak (according to our information, he asked for as payment for their labor, $ 2000 per month). That kind of money we receive only those teachers who guarantee a minimum of prizes at the world championships.
Perhaps the basic club team CSKA will. In mid-July she will take part in the World Cup in the military in Brazil. Today it is the most battle-worthy group of people who can not leave. In Brazil, CSKA will be led by Alexander Nechaev. But there are and their complexity: CSKA back from Brazil the day before the competition starts in Navoi. There is concern that children will not be able to recover and get into the tournament, as they say, from the ship to the ball. Therefore, all will become clear after the Games of the Peoples of Kazakhstan, which begins in those days.

2011 FIBA-Asia Draw and "fun" predictions:

Group A: Lebanon, S. Korea, Malaysia, Middle Asia Qualifier #1
- Could be a tough group if Kazakhstan gets to qualify and ends up here. Regardless though, only Malaysia has a really weak chance of advancing.
- Top place should be a toss-up between Lebanon & S. Korea, but the Lebanese have a stronger chance.

Group B: Iran, Qatar, C. Taipei, Middle Asia Qualifier #2
- The toughest group, even if the weaker Middle Asia qualifying country is inserted here.
- If the 4th slot is given to the Kazakhs, then this will undoubtedly be the Group of Death.
- Iran & Qatar should advance, with C. Taipei's fate dependent on who the 4th member is. If it's a team other than Kazakhstan, the Taiwanese should have no problems, but if it's the Kazakhs then it'll be an all-out brawl.

Group C: Jordan, Japan, Syria, Indonesia
- Doesn't look too tough, but the Syrians can upset either of the top two teams (Jordan & Japan).
- Indonesia is the only sure bet to crash out.
- Jordan is favored to get the top spot due to their superior size and, well, they have naturalized American Rasheim Wright.

Group D: China, Philippines, UAE, Bahrain
- Probably the easiest group, with China and the Philippines being clear-cut favorites.
- China is the strongest here and will probably sweep the opposition, but the Pinoys have an outside chance to upset them, especially with Marcus Douthit and 4 PBA reinforcements in tow.
- Bahrain and UAE have a 1-1 record against each other from the Gulf sub-zone qualifiers. It should be interesting to see which one takes the 3rd spot in the next round.

*Remember: Top 3 teams from each group will advance to the Eighth-Final Round. A team's win-loss record against the other two advancing teams from the same group will be carried over. Each team will play against all three advancing team from the partner group --
Top 3 from Groups A & B will comprise Group E while top 3 from Groups C & D will make up Group F. Top 4 from each new group of the Eight-Final Round will advance to the Single-Elimination Final Round. Quarterfinal pairings: 1E vs 4F, 2F vs 3E, 1F vs 4E, and 2E vs 3F. Winners move on to the Semifinals and then winners there dispute the 2012 London Olympics slot in the Championship game.

*Just for fun, let's see how things MIGHT go:
- Let's say Kazakhstan gets into Group A and India qualifies into Group B.
- Givens: Lebanon will not have Jackson Vroman and Matt Freije; Iran will have Hamed Haddadi; China will not have Yao Ming, but will have Yi Jianlian; Other than those conditions, all teams will be at full-strength

- Teams whom I think will advance to the Eighth-Final Round:
Group A: Lebanon, S. Korea & Kazkahstan
Group B: Iran, Qatar & C. Taipei
Group C: Jordan, Japan & Syria
Group D: China, Philippines & UAE

- From here, I'll pick Iran, Lebanon, S. Korea & Qatar to advance from Group E.
- I'll also pick China, Philippines, Jordan & Japan to advance from Group F.

- IF that happens, this could be the Championship Round pairings:
Iran vs Japan -- Iran should win quite handily.
Philippines vs S. Korea -- Tough to call since S. Korean NT has never played the Pinoys with Douthit around. I'll be biased and pick PHL.
China vs Qatar -- China hands down.
Lebanon vs Jordan -- Should be close, with Fadi El-Khatib outplaying Sam Dahglas just enough for Lebanon to advance.

- Semis: Iran vs Philippines and China vs Lebanon -- If Haddadi is healthy then Iran will have the edge while China should have enough to hurdle Lebanon.
- Finals: Iran vs China -- China will avenge its 2009 championship loss and beat Iran to advance to the 2012 London Olympics.

CHN/IRI - Iran to begin title defense in Group B; China opt for Gr. D; Lebanon in Gr. A


WUHAN, China (26th FIBA Asia Championship): Twice defending champions Iran will match wits with GCC champions Qatar, East Asia’s Chinese Taipei and the qualifier from the “Stan” division of Middle Asia in Group B in the Preliminary Round of the 26th FIBA Asia Championship.

The draw for the 26th FIBA Asia Championship was completed at the host city Wuhan amidst a sparkling ceremony on the Yangzte River on Wednesday.

Vice Mayor of Wuhan Liu Shunni presided over the Draw Ceremony in the presence of Hu Dechun, Director of Administration of Sports of Hubei Province, Luo Changgang, Director of Economic and Technological Development Zone, Zhang Jin, Deputy Director of Admin. of Sports of Hubei Province, Former China National Team coach Liu Guiyi and the representatives of sponsors – KIA Motors, PEAK and Sportsfive.

FIBA Asia Deputy Secretary General Hagop Khajirian along with FIBA Asia Hon. Chairman Xin Lancheng, also the Secretary General of CBA, supervised the Draw proceedings.

The 26th FIBA Asia Championship, also the qualifying event for the 2012 London Olympics, will be held from Sept 15-25.

The champion team from Wuhan will directly qualify for the most significant sporting event at the British capital, while the No 2 and No 3 teams will qualify for the FIBA Olympic qualifying tournament.

Hosts China as per the procedure of the draw opted to play in Group D after SEABA champions Philippines along with GCC duo UAE and Bahrain were drawn.

Lebanon, who qualified for the 26th FIBA Asia Championship directly by virtue of winning the title in the 3rd FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup last year were drawn in Group A along with the qualifier from the SAARC division of Middle Asia, SEABA’s Malaysia and recently crowned East Asian champions Korea.

Japan, who lost to Lebanon in the 3rd FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup, were drawn into Group C along with SEABA runners-up Indonesia, 2009 FIBA Asia Championship bronze medalists Jordan and another WABA team Syria.

The 26th FIBA Asia Championship is the fifth occasion when China will host this prestigious event – 1989 Beijing, 2001 Shanghai, 2003 Harbin and 2009 Tianjin are the earlier occasions.

The Draw process

The four semifinalists of the 3rd FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup – Lebanon, Japan, Qatar and Philippines – were seeded into four different groups, and the draw decided which group each of them will figure. Liu Guiyi conducted the draw for the seeded teams.

The two Middle Asian representatives along with Indonesia and UAE were drawn next. Hu Dechun drew the lots to decide which team goes where.

Luo Changgang conducted the draw for the next level involving Malaysia, Taipei, Syria and Bahrain to follow suit.

At this stage, China exercised their right – as hosts – of choice in the groupings and Zhang Jin drew Iran, Jordan and Korea into their respective groups.

Groupings for Preliminary Round

Group A: Lebanon, Middle Asia 1, Malaysia, Korea

Group B: Qatar, Middle Asia 2, Ch. Taipei, Iran

Group C: Japan, Indonesia, Syria, Jordan

Group D: Philippines, UAE, Bahrain, China.

Notes:

Middle Asia 1: New Delhi hosts the SAARC teams from July 13-15 to identify this qualifier.

Middle Asia 2: Navoi (UBZ) will host Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan as the four teams attempt to win this qualifying berth.

The top three teams from each group will advance to the Second Round in the following manner.

Second Round Groupings

Group E: A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3

Group F: C1, C2, C3, D1, D2, D3

Each team will play the three (3) new teams in its own group (the final scores of all games played in the Preliminary Round are valid for this round). The top four from each group in the Second Round will advance to the knockout quarterfinal stage.

loool let me jog your memory 2005 Doha AC Fadi's penetration in face off Yao ...does anyone remember that ? Fadi going up for a dunk Yao defends trying to reject.he puts his arm all over Fadi with his height advantage...Fadi turned the clash into a skillful lay-up !

Yao gone mad went to the referee table arguing the referees accusing Fadi using his arm to defend the ball. He injured his forehead (right above the eye part) and went out to grab couple of stitches.

While he was angry he took some of the blood from the injured part and scratch it on the referee table.

I'm sure both players till this day remember the incident.

So your saying that he is better than Yao now? Well i love your logics.A layup makes you a better player.
Yao is an 8 time All Star.He is in another planet.

no i'm not saying that but comparing two different players on two different positions is unlikely...Yao Best Center in Asia Fadi Best SF is Asia.

the lay-up is a great proof of that Yao with his huge body can't stop MJ :P

Yao had NBA career because of his height...unless he would never been that much affective.
Zhi-Zhi , Jian Lian also played in NBA but they never had Yao's career.

And for the record Fadi signed with LA Clippers before Yao was even in the states...the only problem was his release paper from Sagesse which led him to stay here.

no i'm not saying that but comparing two different players on two different positions is unlikely...Yao Best Center in Asia Fadi Best SF is Asia.

the lay-up is a great proof of that Yao with his huge body can't stop MJ :P

Yao had NBA career because of his height...unless he would never been that much affective.
Zhi-Zhi , Jian Lian also played in NBA but they never had Yao's career.

And for the record Fadi signed with LA Clippers before Yao was even in the states...the only problem was his release paper from Sagesse which led him to stay here.

Yao is incomparable,bottom line.

I really like Fadi as a player but the way you guys are talking about him makes me reconsider somethings.

It's better off ignoring you so i can still like Fadi as much as i do right now.;)

of course you cant compare Fadi to Yao bcs they both play very very different positions:D
but if i were to say how valuable they both are to their teams i would say they are both equally as valuable, as china without Yao is much weaker just like lebanon without el Khatib is also much weaker.
they both are great players who can carry teams on their shoulders.

you know this discussion reminds me of another one we had about who was the best lebanese player ever, el Khatib or Rony Seikaly, the former led lebanon to glory while the latter set numerous NBA records and helped US win gold, the conclusion was that you just cant compare them bcs their job is very different.
But what i can surely say is that el khatib is just as much of a valuable player as Yao, and Mavrick was trying to say that in one on one confrotations el khatib had the edge:)
It's kinda like you're trying to compare Oliver Kahn to Ronaldo in football:p

The level of communication between you guys is really disappointing and has gotten way out of hand :cool:

Instead of arguing with each other and taking things personally you can always report a message that you find to be offensive and we will take the appropriate action.

And remember the title of this thread is FIBA Asia Championship 2011 Wuhan so keep that in mind!!!

One last time here are the IBN forum rules and regulations... Next time we won't mention this anymore and will take the appropriate action even if that means that bans will be given out.

Also regarding posting pictures please read the bolded part below so all is clear and concise whether it's for normal pics or signatures and thank you


INTERBASKET.NET FORUM GUIDELINES

Most people at InterBasket.Net get along fine. This is a big site with very few problems and everyone has freedom of speech here.

If you follow these basic guidelines, you can help keep this site strong.

DO
• Use common courtesy
• Exercise your good judgment
• Debate respectfully
• Translate to English by yourself or with a computer program
• Build a good reputation
• Report offensive behavior using the "report" buttons

DON’T
• Abuse, stalk, or insult other users (even if they deserve it or started it)
• Spam, flood, or irritate
• Intentionally start arguments or flame wars
• Make off-topic posts

EXTRA NOTES TO REMEMBER
• Avoid discussing issues that are sensitive to other users. Some issues are obviously upsetting, especially issues of nationality. You won’t solve anything by making such discussions.
• The best way to end any argument is to simply write "Whatever " and stop posting in that topic.
• Spamming includes unwanted advertising. It is usually not a good idea to create a new post just to advertise another website. If your first post is a link to an ad for used basketball socks, you’ll probably get banned. (If an outside website is relevant to a discussion, post a link. Feel free to post a link to your personal website or blog in your signature).
• Keep images and signatures at a reasonable size so that the site is easy for everyone to download. 450 pixels by 100 pixels is the largest size for a signature, even if the picture in your signature is linked to another site.
• To avoid flooding (posting too much about the same thing in an inappropriate discussion), create threads for specific topics that you post a lot about. There is no need to interrupt the discussion of “EuroLeague Rumors and Signings” with lots of posts about the scores in the Andorran Division III League. Make a new thread about the Andorran Division III League and get people excited.
• The “UN Forum” at the bottom of the forums homepage is a great place for “off-topic” discussions.
• In the past, a few loud users have had trouble avoiding sensitive issues and insulting other users. When this happens, it is usually because of a sports rivalry that does not need to be dramatized on the internet. Remember: there are probably a few nice Lakers fans somewhere in the world, so don’t call them all “idiots.”
• Please provide reputable links when you can. Links to online newspapers are clearly more reputable than links to a forum that contains wild rumors. If the link is not in English, please provide a translation.

CONSEQUENCES
If users decide to damage the quality of InterBasket.Net by insulting, flooding, spamming, or otherwise violating the integrity of InterBasket.Net, moderators usually send several warnings. The moderators here are very patient and a simple reminder to the violating user is usually the end of the issue. However, should a user continue to hurt the discussion at InterBasket.Net, it will result in a series of temporary bans and, if the violations continue, end in a permanent ban.

There have been users in the past who joined InterBasket.Net and immediately started making racist or other prejudicial comments. These cases are always obvious and such users are banned without discussion.

honored Yao by three Chinese sports associations
July 26th, 2011
by John

It’s not much of a surprise, but it was confirmed Yao will not be playing for the Chinese National Team again, including the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Bummer for Chinese hoops fans.

On a lighter note, Yao received many awards from various Chinese sports groups a couple of days ago at a ceremony in Beijing attended by about 200 people.

July 25th, 2011 - Yao Ming receives a jersey with his old number on it

July 25th, 2011 - Yao Ming speaks at a CBA ceremony that honored him

Many top sports officials were there as well as some of Yao’s former coaches from the Chinese National Team. Yao received the following awards:

- The State General Administration of Sports awarded him with a Sports Honorary Medal
- The Chinese Olympic Committee awarded him with a Chinese Olympic Gold Medal
- The Chinese Basketball Association awarded him the China Award for Outstanding Contribution to Basketball, and made him an Honorary National Team member for Life (which is stitched on to the jersey above)

anyways... its a shame how we had a chance to improve the Lebanese basketball even more, and keep the glow shining, but unfortunately, there are some political effects even inside sports... the only getaway we have as citizens, and they are destroying it!...

its a shame to c other federations taking very good care of their national teams, players and future players, and taking good decisions, making good preparations programs....as for us we are so laid back and leaving everything till the last second!! 1 month prior to the tournament !!...and the funny part is that with such conditions and our NT is achieving some good results !!...how about if, JUST FOR ONCE, we seriously prepare the NT, and right decisions will be taken by our lovely federation...what will Lebanon achieve ?!......

wouldn't he be a bit old in 2013? I think this is a good window of opportunity for Lebanon to achieve something (he had a great performance a few months ago in the asian club games), and to me, coaching kids in a summer camp or being tired doesn't sound like a good reason for missing this important event, unless he is injured.

Hello Buran, Fadi might be back, nothing sure yet!
But let me explain to u, Fadi has been playing for the Lebanese NT since 1999, does it ring bell? he just missed the summer of 2003 and 2004, and other than that he was always with the NT during the summer. The thing is that Fadi has been pressured a lot, whether locally with his club (he played this year almost 80 official and unofficial games) and internationally with the NT!
However, i still do believe that Fadi can serve the NT 5 more years, since he is a very professional player who trains 7 to 10 hours per day and he still in great shape!

Although Fadi is a great player,but in my opinion i hate his mentality.As Daniab said he may change his mind in the last minute as happens every year,but i think he's trying to retire in a polite way by making fatigue and teaching kids as excuses,maybe it's time to give the chance to other players inorder to shine in the proper time.

Khalid80
08-10-2011, 07:48 AM
I would love to see Fadi back only if he wants to play for our NT... Pressuring or trying to force him to join the NT is wrong and imo will definitely negatively affect the team and make things worse.

I hope the federation aren't doing this...

we've beaten France in 2006 WC when we were in a state of war.

if you think that just bcs lebanon is weaker just bcs we're missing el khatib and 5 other starters then you're in for a big surprise,seriously,with the agressive lineup we're fielding,i'd be surprised if you can score more than 65 points against us:cool:

that's my analysis, and yours is different..maybe we would beat you now in an official tournament (what you mean by official tournament by the way?)..just maybe..;)

Hmmm?? So you regularly go on the court with 6 players?!! Last time i remember Khatib was a starter!


don't you think Iran has also just 6 main players !!! you go to court with 6 players !!!

2-Brian Bechara (204-PF)
3-Matt Freijie (208-PF)
4-Daniel Faris (206-C)
5-Billy Faris (206-PF)
6-Roni Fahed (184-PG)
7-Ali Mahmoud (180-PG)

These Are The Main or Power Players for Our NT who will miss this Year Asian championship ,and to Add we will miss Ahmad Ibrahim(199-SF) ,Omar turk (188-SG) ,Ali Haidar (202-PF) ...

qatar has been working hard all summer dont under estimate them, they have been on the downhill last couple championships. Dont be shocked if they upset china in Quarterfinals or even beat iran in round robin to avoid a quarter final china match. They have naturalized Chanucey Leslie and are ready with their key guys slowing down they know its now or never, on top Ngombo is playing outstanding basketball right now. He had a breakout summer last year and is rollign this summer as well

IMO for The Philippine side come Fiba-Asia Quarters, as their possible opponent would be on Group E with a probable ranking as follows:
IRAN
KOREA

after this the last 2 spot is a toss up between Taiwan, Qatar, and Lebanon..

Honestly im rooting for LEBANON and Taiwan to ELIMINATE Qatar because based on W-L History Team Philippines has some problems with Qatar and almost any Filipino B-Ball fan knows that and on the other hand Philippines had some good match-up against Taiwan and Lebanon.

So come quarters on GROUP E... i'll say this

GO TAIWAN!!:o
GO LEBANON!!:)
eliminate qatar!!!:rolleyes:

lebanon can and should win over qatar but CT i doubt they will. they lack size especially under the basket where qatar strength lies. so i think qatar might place 4th after lebanon korea and iran in no particular order ( unless they surprise us with an unexpected win. and they will be facing probably china and not RP so ur safe unless they win lebanon korea or iran.

I am really rooting for Lebanon and Taiwan to eliminate Qatar..
I think CT can handle Qatar if you will review their previous matches CT has more won game against them, because Qatar has some problems with Taiwans quickness.

but with qatar naturalizing another player like Leslie... Qatar is really addressing their pg and quickness problems.

With this current lineup and knowing the preparations we had, reaching the semis would be an achievement for Lebanon. Anything above that would be bonus, and anything less that quarters would be a failure.

Unfortunately, for the 1st time since years I don't see the team being able to compete for the title while we could have a big shot on this one if it wasn't for the current FLB...(same story as always)

guys, seriously,stop being so pessimistic, you should start having faith in our team and start showing more support.
the players are trying their best to compete on the title and have the best possible showing while you here are doubting their abilities.
speaking like that in public forums does nothing except deteriorate and down the players' moral.
they all believe that they can win and compete, then why dont you?

always want to keep the expectations low so i won't be upset later on.
Supporting the team since day 1 and i have faith in them.

However, it's a two way thing. the players already know what the public are saying about them. This public statements are a 'good thing' for moral. This way they will try to do everything to prove us wrong.

Lebanon’s final roster short on experience
September 02, 2011 02:04 AM
By Dany Abboud
The Daily Star

BEIRUT: Lebanon have submitted their final roster two weeks prior to the start of the 26nd FIBA Asia championships, which takes place in Wuhan, China from Sept. 15 until Sept. 25.

The final roster includes 12 players: the captain Rodrigue Akl, Miguel Martinez, Mohammad Ibrahim, Ghaleb Reda, Jean Abdel Nour, Elie Stephan, Abboudy al-Farekh, Bassel Bawji, Jad Bitar, Ali Kanaan, Charles Tabet and American Sam Hoskin as a naturalized player.

The inclusion of Bitar came at the final minute, as Lebanon received another blow when their experienced center Roy Samaha was injured. Samaha joined a long list of absentees, which includes more than eight players from the last edition of the FIBA Asia Championship in Tianjin – most noticeably Lebanon’s captain and arguably their best player ever Fadi al-Khatib, alongside top point guards Ali Mahmoud and Rony Fahed.

Elie Rustom, Lebanon’s starting shooting guard at the FIBA World championship last summer in Turkey, will also miss the opportunity to play for the first time in his Asian tournament career because of a back injury.

Only five players have previously represented The Cedars internationally – Abdel Nour, Kanaan, Reda, Ibrahim and Akl – leaving Lebanon desperately short of experience.

Iran has a fair chance against the Chinese, IMO. the rest, Korea, Japan, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar and our team, Phils, can also give a run for their money come Wuhan. let's see.

Though China remains a top medal contender, i dont see them nearly as strong as they were a few years back, they are very beatable now from where i stand, they havent been at all impressive against top european teams, and frankly im not so very optimistic about their chances.
Them loosing against teams like philipines,Jordan,Japan isint far fetched as it used to be, in fact,i wont be surprised if china qualifies 2nd and not 1st in their group bcs i see an upset from one of these 3 teams possible.
Lebanon apart that's how asses the chances of the following teams against them:

Iran: 40% (though this same chinese team smoked the iranians twice by 20+ points in last year's stankovic but i still think that with the depth of their squad the iranians have a big chance of contesting the chinese)

Korea-Qatar: 35% (Koreans and Qataris have gotten quite strong lately and an upset seems in the reach,technically these two teams are not quite far apart from the chinese).

Jordan-philipines:30% (with their fast play and deadly sharpshooting, the pinoys on a lucky day can bring down any asian powerhouse)

Japan:20%.

Chinese Tapei: 10%

You are kidding right. Iceland is definitely not a top European Basketball team and they only won by 14 points. I saw the game and I was not impressed at all by China. While I think they will definitely be a formidable team in the Fiba Asia tournament they are definitely beatable

You cannot compare Belarus, Hungary to Iceland. Hungary had the chance to qualify for the Eurobasket this summer in a qualification round. Ok, Belarus were in a bad shape this summer, maybe becaue no motivation (no chance to qualify for something), but both nations are 1 or 2 levels above Iceland. In 2006, China trashed Iceland (by 40 difference).
Maybe China is pretending a bad condition and will show their real face on wednesday.

Yup it's a good thing for any team to get in trouble. (That's how you learn your lesson) it's how things goes in life too.
don't even start mentioning the word 'injury' give a visit to the lebanese thread first before talking.

and who's laughing on your NT ? :) I believe even on your worst day The Chinese NT can grab a Championship.

All i'm saying that the way of comparison is not fair.
Most of the teams were touring in Europe having friendlies at that stage while Lebanon barely started their half preparation.

Already mentioned 'didn't say that in a wrong' read the thread well before throwing things around pal.No hard feelings.

sarcasm and arrogance....not even close !

Probably alot of people here will understand my comments the wrong way but what am doing here is a constructive criticism of chinese bball.

I dont think that anyone would disagree that with the huge chinese population and potential,the chinese NT should be on top of the world and even better than team USA.
China dominating a weak continent like asia is really not enough,and i were chinese i would consider that underachieving.
I mean,look at China in the olympics,they dominate in every sport,and when it comes to individual games, they're the world number 1 (they amassed the most medals in the last olympics),but come look at team sports like basketball for example,it seems they are always underachieving and not living up to their full potential,with a population like that they can easily recruit the best talents and advertise like no other nation (biggest market in the world) thus enabling them to have the strongest leagues in the world,yet we see them constantly underachieving.
I've read numerous articles about it and there's definetly smt wrong with the recruitment of basketball players in China,they seem to focus only on height and very little on skills,that's why you see china having the tallest lineups in most championships but lacking the required talent to compete with the world's best.
That's why i see that dominating Asia for china is a failure when they should really be dominating the world in basketball just like they do in other olympic games;)

So for Lebanon and Lithuania to have such competitive teams is a great achievement even overachievment specially Lithuania who with it's small population and limited resources was able to face the giants thanks to a coordinated baskebtall plan and a true vision of things and were able to make the best of their resources.

why is china unable to beat world class teams?

well, the chinese have a lot of tall players but when you look at them, they are not really that athletic compared to world powers in basketball. if in 20 years china still not to the level of top teams in the world, then we can call them underachieving.

lithuania may be small but there are more people above 6 feet there than there is in a country like my own, philippines.

same with lebanon and jordan, they are blessed with being tall so it is easier to be powers in basketball.

26th FIBA Asia Championship: it cant, it wont and it doesn't get bigger than this! - Sep 11, 2011 (by Omar Shafaamri)

- China will play host to the FIBA Asia Championship for the fifth time.

- China won the title on three of the four previous occasions Beijing 1989, Shanghai 2001 and Harbin 2003. China finished second to Iran in the 25th FIBA Asia Championship at Tianjin in 2009.

- China hold the record for the most number of Championship wins 14 times.

Barring one occasion in 2007 at Tokushima, when they finished 10th, China have won a medal in all their 18 appearances.

- Korea are the only team to have participated in all the 25 Championships so far.

- Korea are also the only team to have entered the semifinals in 24 of the 25 appearances.

- After Korea, Japan come next in terms of appearances 24 times. Philippines follow with 23 appearances. India and Malaysia have 21 appearances.

- In Tokushima 2007, Iran became the second country who won their first medal as the gold medal.

- China were the first to post such a record - when they won the title on debut in 1975 Bangkok.

- Iran are aiming to become only the second team in FIBA Asia history to win the FIBA Asia Championship three times a in a row.

- China have the distinction of achieving a three-peat or more on three different occasions.

- From 1975 to 1983, China won five titles in a row, then from 1987 they won it for another penta-peat till 1995, and then from 1999 till 2005 they won four successive gold medals.

- Iran, of course won their maiden title in 2007 and then went on to repeat it in 2009.

- Philippines have won the title five times followed by Korea, Japan and Iran twice each.

- China (1975) and Philippines (1960) hold the unique record of having won the gold in their debut. 1960, was of course the inaugural edition of the FIBA Asia Championship.

- After China and Philippines, Lebanon are the team to have achieved the fastest climb in rankings after their first appearance.

- Lebanon finished seventh on their debut in 1999 at Fukuoka, but have ever since entered the semifinals on all the four subsequent occasions, including winning the silver medal three times (2001, 05 and 07).

- Three of the participants in 2011, didn't participate in the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship.

- Malaysia make a comeback into FIBA Asia Championship after six years the SEABA team finished 16th in the 2005 edition at Doha.

- Bahrain are back in fray after a gap of 12 years the GCC team had finished 12th at Fukuoka in 1999. Bahrain had qualified for the 2009 edition at Tianjin, but withdrew later.

- Syria missed the 2009 edition and are back in the fray the WABA team had finished 11th in 2007 at Tokushima.

I'm still betting on FIBA not allowing it, due to Ngombo's fake birthdate. If Ngombo got the passport later and not in his youth, then he is the naturalized player.
