meeting Korea on Day 2 is a tough one. It would have been a fierce match-up if the game was on Day 3.

Anyway i think Korea has a slight advantage 52-48 % over Lebanon.

But i'm counting on the heart of our boys for a big fight.

The South Korea - Lebanon match is interesting. It could be anybody's ballgame. Hard to choose but in the end I got to choose one team and that is South Korea over Lebanon.

India vs Malaysia - These 2 teams are upstars in the Asia Championships. Either team is capable of beating the other but since I have to choose one I'd pick India winning over Malaysia.

as much as i hope we win but i see a koren first strike due to our injuries and lack of preparation. However we will strike back in the upcoming rounds.

Hard Game for Both Teams ,Hope we will win that game but no one will know who will win but the Korea have a slight advantage on us ,but im sure that Our Players will fight !!

Our Main Keys in this Game will be :

Ghaleb Rida (192-SG)
GR Mission:Scoring as he s an experienced player ,Very Good Deffence considered to be the best deffensive player in Lebanon very Agressive ,can play the Role of a leader ,can shoot very well from everywhere !

http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/76405_170346639660222_100000546624474_485011_52804 24_n.jpg

Jean Abdel Nour (199-SF)
ABN Mission :to be the Leader ,scoring since he s the best scorer in the team now, show his maturity on the court as usual ,fight on every ball (doing eveything on the court as usual ,being JAN ),fight on deffence

http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/299455_255067967847311_100000323308233_875249_7707 919_n.jpg

Mohammad Ibrahim (196-PG)
MI Mission:Since he s a tall PG ,he wil have big Miss match against Korean and for sure he will dominate them on Deffence and offence ,+ we need he s very good Vision on the court and also we need his shooting who killed a lot of teams before

http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/189243_1460105641417_1796724428_849609_81440_n.jpg

Man,seriously you're the funniest guy i met on this forum,you think all this world is a conspiracy theory and everything happens for a reason, you watch way too much science fiction movies dude,lighten up;)
Fac was picked in the first place but he refused after he saw the huge list of absentees and the limited budget,sarkis was the only man brave enough to step up,so give him some credit for God's sake.
And so far with sarkis we had awesome results;)
so if you could just wait till the championship is over and then start bashing,it would be very much appreciated, but pls for the moment spare us your funny comments

Ghassan in an Interview said that we will win against Korea in the Groups Stage and he s preparing very well for this Game and in my opinion our Players can do it ,all of them are talented ,from Rod to Migu to Ibrahim ,to Ghaleb-Jean-Stephan-Kanaan-Bawji-Tabet-Hoskin ,we have very good players ,we will do it hope that ,it will help us a lot in the next games if we top the Group !

this game would be a good one, but i think korea would emerge the winner by a strong 3rd quarter..Lebanon will win this one if their inside game will going to start strong, then their shooters would be left open..however, if the big guys of korean will be able to withstand the biggies of lebanon, then that's it for lebanon coz in the wings, korean has a very fast players to cover all your shooters..

i have a feeling that korea's big men will have the worst time of their lives playing against us, specially that lame excuse for a basketball panda Ha:p
with the fast tempo we'll be playing and our fast breaks he'll barely make it through the 1st quarter,coach ghassan knows that Ha is useless on offense and okay on defense if he's in place for this reason he'll adapt a fast tempo limiting Ha's effectiveness (he needs a minute to run the court:p).
on defense our team can again limit the big Ha with the full court press and pressuring the undersized korean PG,
bottom line,if we can adapt a fast tempo limiting the korean's slow inside game,and pressure their PG and control the tempo the game will be in our hands

are you sure you were watching the korean game? koreans slow? where did you get that idea? beside Ha is not their star player..if you are concentrating on Ha, then it would be a short nite for your team..anyway, i know your coach knows the weakness of koreans and its not only Ha..koreans can bench Ha and still could win the game against you..that's how useless Ha could be sometime..and please don't tell me that you need to up the tempo of the game to beat the koreans..coz you would be playing their game..you need to slow the game and throw the ball inside to make their power forwards play hard defense and in foul trouble..coz its their power forwards who are good and could shoot the threes..

i said speeding up the tempo to limit their inside game and Ha;)
plus,i've seen their starting Pg,he's undersized and less than impressive,if we shut them down,and Ha (the only pure center), the game will be in our hands.
Position 1 and 5 are the most sensitive positions and once those are handled the game is in hand

i think you are not listening to macan. you are correct that you have advantage in height in point guard but that's it. korean PG up to the PF shoots 3s. that's what he meant by saying get their power forwards in foul trouble especially that Kim which by far is one of their stars. they can even utilize one of their Power forwards as centers and there you go, everyone is shooting 3s. if the koreans control the defensive boards then that's it, they can ran and stop and shoot in the 3s or perimeter. now tell me, is that easy to defend? you can neutralize it by slowing the game, and shoot the ball well.

Hi ASB welcome along :)
two players from the Lebanese side don't shoot 3s only 2.
Most of the followers they will be shocked by the change of style of our side in this tournament.
Remember we don't have big names anymore. It's more like the new approach from our head coach to build a new team based on team work and not on individuals.
It's obvious the change in our system as the team can play exactly similar to the opposition or back to the routs and slowing down the pace regarding the score.
However i still believe that Korea has a slight advantage on us at this moment because of our lack of preparations.

you're also forgetting that all our lebanese starting lineup can shoot the 3s without any exception;) and at very high percentages too,
our PG,SG,SF, even our PF and our C are all 3 pt experts,so i guess that we have an advantage in that field, add to that that our 1-2-3 are all excellent defenders, are all very fast, plus are 4-5 are also renown for their defense (hoskin was voted defensive player of the russian league or euroleague i'm not sure).
So to sum it up: Height, we have the advantage.
-long range shooting: we also have the advantage.
-PG: we have a distinct advantage and that allows us to control the tempo of the game (this is a fatal advantage).
-speed and stamina: all are players our young and can give stable performances for 40 mins
-under the basket: i dont think we will have any problem with tabet and hoskin under the basket (both averaged 15 rpg in the lebanese and iranian leagues respectively).
Plus our coach is very well renown for his defensive strategies, he can easily deal with any sharpshooting team and he has done times and times again in our league.

I cant but respect his opinion bcs it's very logical.

But i know deep in my heart that tommorow's game wont be a walk in the park for Korea, we wont go down that easy, and i predict a win, India is a very underestimated team that was also about to upset Iran lately,good thing we're through with this game, for now we're going full focus on korea's game tommorow

lebanon playing well as a team. korea looks they have better players but lebanon teamwork and defense is very good. they are forcing turnovers on korea.

hoskins is no good. slow and unathletic, and small. lebanese frontcourt players are bigger and better than him, you might as well have gone all lebanese in this tournament

Very proud of our players, Jean seems to have a slight injury :(
I hope he is ok, either way we are fucked up!

Yes i heard he had a slight back injury yesterday:(
hope he can step up and play bcs Ghaleb cant handle the game alone,too much pressure on him being the go to guy making him commit silly turnovers

South Korea playing small. Hur Jae knows that Ha Seung-Jin will just be liability on this game. Kim Jong-Kyu and Kim Joo-Sung had quality minutes at center.

as i have posted before, the only way lebanon could win this game is to dump the ball to their big men..let the big men of korea work hard and get in foul trouble..lebanon must slow the game and keep the game close..otherwise, it would be a certain loss to lebanon..korean guards are killing lebanon now..

And why do the Lebanese post players look so chubby? Also Jordan post players looked the same way and I dont want to talk about UAE...I love the Lebanese/Syrian/Jordan food as hell, but I think some players are into it too much :)

macan77 your speaking to the walls , because our clueless manager has no tactics or vision. he has no game.

he sucks, just fire him

because korean is a fast paced team, slowing the game would kill their rhythm..you can see from the game if korean is doing their half court game, they are much vulnerable..just cover their guards for the perimeter and 3s..but lebanon is a step slow in covering those bases

53-44 for the Koreans. Come on Lebanon you can do better than this.

rebounding, especially offensively is great, shooting is terrible. huge problems against the korean zone, while on defense, you play man-2-man and they are getting by with a simple pick and roll.

Good games for team captain Yang Dong Geun who's scoring was invaluable. Moon Ta-Jong produced in the wings as expected of him while Kim Joo-Sung did well as the center.

Oh Sakeun was the valuable sixth man.

i think you're the most educated Lebanon fan here. So which player would you consider the leader of the team? Statistically, who's the most potent weapon for your team? (Again, forgive me, i am uneducated with this Lebanese squad)

Guys,it's okay,final score 80-62
we managed to hold our own against the koreans in the 1st half but got blown out bcs of rookie mistakes.
Jean's injury was a definite blow, was he in shape it would've been a complete different story.

the positive:

Rodirigue akl was 100% from FG today and 100% from the FT line, i wish he could play more agressively and try and be the leader on court.
Bassel bawji showed some class today.

The bad:

silly silly rookie mistakes,experience is hurting us alot, alot of traveling calls,backcourt violations,easily falling into traps...
those mistakes might cost us later on, but i'm confident that it will be okay.

for now,let's forget about the past,what's done is done, let's focus on tommorow's match against malaysia, we need a win,hopefully after a few games these mistakes will be settled, and we need to work seriously if we are to have a chance against Iran, we can still finish top 2 or even top 1 guys, nothing is done.
we just need some courage.

Hopefully with Jean's injury healing we'll be able to have some good games a play more on the inside, bcs our 3pt shooting so far has been disasterous.

Go Lebanon.

Easy win for S.Korea. Lebanon seemed to be gassed out in the 4th Q.

It could have been a +30 blowout if the Koreans wanted to play the last few minutes. But Lebanon came up serious and made the margin get a little bit closer.

FT: S.Korea 80- 62 Lebanon

The South Koreans have outpaced the Lebanese. Lebanon's transition from offense to defense has been poor. That's how they've mostly been caught out. Furthermore, the Lebanese players were rushing with the ball. They haven't taken their time and, as a result, ended up missing lots of shots. It's beyond a shadow of a doubt that South Korea imposed their tactical game on Lebanon. The Lebanese were, consequentially, tempted to rush with the ball, waste so many chances, and open the game up for South Korea to take advantage of, on the fast break.

I really hope the Lebanese work to improve themselves for the upcoming games. Good luck, Lebanon. I'm rooting for you! :)

the qatari broadcaster kept talking how its a shame how qatar were disqualified , i dont see how getting disqualified cuz of having 12 imports is a shame :p its a shame how they went 8 years like this before someone doing something .. including getting to the world championship in 2006 which should not have happened if they did not have had all the imports and i think they went too far by getting the last 2 imports ngombo and ndiaye without anyone changing their names so i guess FIBA has to do something even if the president is qatari :)... for lebanon I think the team they have now is okay they will get better .. they will surely make it to the quarter finals but i dont know about making it to the semi final hopefully they will

In all honesty I was expecting such a result for our NT.
At the end of the day with such kind of low budget, bad preparations, many players missing due to various reasons, bad physical conditioning and not playing enough games, getting the nationalized player at the last second (3 weeks before the start of the tournament).... Add all these factors together and it all makes sense.

Off course we need to add that we are missing our experienced players (like Khatib, Mahmoud, Fahed...) and that this team is still young and a work in progress.


Our chemistry will improve as the tournament progresses and we will have better games but what i'm worried about is the physical fitness of our players. Can they play such type of tough games on a daily basis and be able to last without any more injuries?

these youngers will have a good Future ,Bassel Bawji was Very Good today !

we missed Today Fahed and Khatib the Killers of Korea :p and Specially Fahed when he play against Korea he turned to be a Kobe Bryant Version who don t miss any shot :p

but we will keep our hopes High ,but we have to be realistic ,it s a young Team ,a New Team ,no Experience ,Not The Best Lebanese Players but finally it s our NT we should support Them ,Go Lebannoooooooonnn Hope the Best in the Next Rounds !

IMO all the players were day dreaming today offensively, except rodrigue...
Defensively they were fine and at some point they were only observers...however I'm not taking it as an excuse, but there were too many bad calls by the referees, there were at least 5 block shots that were called against us defensively speaking...
Ghaleb should either stay on the bench or play as a team for once!! Fcoz when ur opponent is as good as Korea, ghaleb is not the key for the win...it's the team..he was extremely over selfish today...w yaret he was lucky to have 50% fg...mashi!! He was attempting too many silly shots and continued trying unsuccessfully..

Ghassan sarkis is the worst coach for the NT... i.e In critical moments he didn't even bother himself to call a timeout...

Anyways...hoping to reach the semis although after today's game it was clear that it's gona be almost an impossible task...specially with sample players like ghaleb... He will never be a leader more than a reason to make us lose the game in crucial moments...

Long live Lebanon!!(except all the politicians!!)

this game would be a good one, but i think korea would emerge the winner by a strong 3rd quarter..Lebanon will win this one if their inside game will going to start strong, then their shooters would be left open..however, if the big guys of korean will be able to withstand the biggies of lebanon, then that's it for lebanon coz in the wings, korean has a very fast players to cover all your shooters..

remember this? i wrote this one in the first page of this thread..i told you the 3rd quarter would be crucial..
