Mabrouk for ASU to be playing in the Jordanian 1st Division! It's good for them that they were able to get great players like the Abbas Brothers, Eyad, Louai and Faisal. What I like about this team is that they have many good young players who can develop and grow with the team. The only setback I noticed is that they don't have any imports.

No imports in Jordan next season to concentrate on the National Team who will prepare for the Asian Championship 2009 which may be in amman.....

But Zain & Al Riyadi Amman will bring imports for Dubai Tournament...

How does bringing imports prevent the NT from focusing on the asian cup?:confused:

On the contrary, local players need contacts with imports to get experience and improve be4 asia!

I notice that JBF invest alot in their NT (3-4 months of training, camps abroad etc.) but completely neglect the local league which take only 2-3 months. But the jordanian NT always fails in important competitions/

In Lebanon the league is much better but NT's prepartions are always bad. However we managed to qualify twice to WC and were so close to the olympics.

we played jordan this summer. we had trained 5 times only be4 the game. jordan had brought a jordanian player from the US and made a training camp in europe. however we won by 15 pts in jordan.

A strong league is the key to a strong NT.

I totally agree with you...

Having no imports this season is for one reason....is to give more time for bench players to play and improve themselves..so they may have the chance to join the NT...

The jordanian league this season is 5 months.....not too short.....so lets see

ASU will add more competition in the league....

"Official: Christensen signs for Zain - Oct 24, 2008 (by Mohammed Malas)

After several days of disappointments, difficulties and other challenges, Mike Christensen (203-G/F-85, agency: Pro Management Agency, college: New Hampshire) can finally let out a sigh of relief.

Yeah, absolutely! Mike agreed. It was tough being away from the States, and living from a hotel room made things even more difficult, but it was all worth it.

The young player from the University of New Hampshire underwent testing periods, crossed borders, practiced, and waited, but finally found the right job.

Honestly, the basketball was fine, the 68 guard explained. After the first day, I played well and was able to get contracts from the top team in Lebanon and Jordan, but most of the difficulties came outside of basketball.

After one week in Lebanon, things didnt go as planned for the 23-year-old player. There was something better, however, waiting for him in Jordan.

Christensen made it to the Hashemite kingdom to sign a much-anticipated naturalization deal.

Now officially a Jordanian, Mike will represent the Jordan National Team in its future accomplishments, and will play professionally for Zain, one of the top teams in the country.

I feel relieved and excited to start the season. I think its a wonderful opportunity and can't wait to get started.

Thinking back about the difficult days he faced earlier in October, Christensen admitted he wasnt expecting matters to be like they were.

It is a competitive business, but I thought things would go smoother.

Now that Mike has learned how to smooth things over for himself, he is ready to start the season for Zain.

Source: Pro Management Agency"

So now it's apparently official. I think he will be a great addition for Zain and we'll have to see how he will fit with the Jordanian NT.

Obeidi inks with Orthodox - Nov 8, 2008 (by Mohammed Malas)
The U18 National Team star Louay Obeidi (198-F/G-90) will be in the Premier League 2008/2009 roster of last season's runner ups Orthodox....

Obeidi is a US based player with big potential and many things to give for Jordan in the future, He will arrive to Amman, Jordan on the 15th of this month to begin preperation with the reds under the command of the new coach Muntaser Abu Al-Tayyeb...

Here's the full profile of Obeidi...



Date of birth: 23/08/1990 Nationality: American/Jordanian

Height (cm): 198 Weight (kg): 101

Position: Shooting Guard/Power Forward/ or Point guard

Career/Comments:

Very Mature and clever player, that creates plays from all aspects of the court.. Louay Obeidi is interchangeable right and left handed player who loves to get his man in foul trouble when it comes to one on one situation. He is a great slasher to the basket, and is very multi-dimensional when it comes to shooting the ball, whether it is coming off screens, jump shots, or even set shots, Louay knows how to use his shooting skill in a very dangerous way. Louay has a smart sense of attacking his man where heʼs most vulnerable; the one aspect of his game that really sticks out is his ability to score. Very difficult to defend because Louay has the size of a big man but the ability of a point guard. When being guarded by a big man he is able to beat him to the basket which causes double teams and more players to be open or when being tested by a small man he has the muscle and strength to be isolated in the post for an easy two-points. He speaks fluent English and Arabic, and is learning Spanish. Easily adapts to society and is an ambitious and quick learner.

New Player in USA called Mitch Platt , he will play with Jordan NT.!!!
this is why i dont like jordanian basketall although i'm from jordan. i cant understand why our basketball federation is naturlizing players. we are the only team that is still doing this in the middle east, even qatar stopped it!!! why dont we call our national team: the naturlized team? it sounds like a good name for an asian nt team that plays with 4 american players!!!! how can jordanian players improove if they cant even make it to the national team because of the forgein players that are taking their place?:mad:


the funny thing is that even by naturlizing players we still cant beat teams like lebanon and iran :D

"Zain completes their roster - Dec 9, 2008 (by Mohammed Malas)

The american power forward Ontario Lett (198-F-79, college: Pittsburgh) who arrived to Amman last sunday is the last addition to Zain's roster before their departure to their camp in Beirut, Lebanon today, 5 games will be played while their stay there with different levels in order to have the system and shape needed for Dubai International Tournament (20-27 December) and the next competitions.

Lett was part of Fastlink (Zain's ex-name) in Arab Clubs Championship, Asian Clubs Championship and Singapore Cup in 2005, He played 12 games this season with Canasta Jerez Unibasket (Spanish LEB-Silver) and averaged 14.1 ppg and 6.6 rpg, The last game with the team on 5th of December against Vigo who won by 7.

Adding to Spain, Ontario's past career includes South Korea, Australia and Turkey.

- Lebanon's camp games schedule (Amman & Beirut Time, +3 GMT):
Tuesday 9/12: Vs. Anibal Zahle at 5 PM
Wednesday 10/12: Vs. Sagesse - Al Hekmeh Beirut at 6 PM
Thursday 11/12: Vs. Sporting Al Riyadi Beirut at 6 PM
Friday 12/12: Vs. FLB Imports at 6 PM
Saturday 13/12: Vs. UAE National Team at 6 PM

- Zain's roster for Lebanon's camp:
Sam Daghlas (197-G-79, college: Midwestern St.)
Francis Ireifej (186-G-82, college: Point Loma)
Enver Soobzokov (193-G/F-78, college: Cal.St.-San Bernar.)
Mohammad Bushnaq (200-F-81)
Moussa Al Awadi (190-G/F-85)
Mike Christensen (203-G/F-85, agency: Pro Management Agency, college: New Hampshire)
Mohammad Hamdan (201-F-84)
Khaldon Abo Rukayeah (198-F-83)
Ontario Lett (198-F-79, college: Pittsburgh)
Zaid Al Khas (205-C-76, college: Gannon)
Moussa Basheer (208-C-78)
Jamal Ma'aytah (213-C-81, agency: Passing Lane, college: Greensboro)
LaShawn Malloy (209-C/F-84, agency: Pro Management Agency, college: New Orleans)

Head Coach: Mario Leonel Palma
Associate Head Coach: Robert Taylor
Assistant: Mario Gomes
Assistant: Ruslan Soobzokov"

That's one hell of a lineup for Zain's Roster! They have alot of size on their team and with the addition of Mike Christensen, Ontario Lett, Lashawn Malloy and the return of Sam Douglas, and Francis Ireifej to the team I don't think any team will be able to beat them (even Riyadi).

Dear weeso...

Thank you for your concern

The Jordanian federation preferred to have this system thius year because teams except Zain and ASU cannot pay for imports!!!...and in the same time to give chance for local players to play more time and that will make the bench players play more....

The Elite Group in the JPL is so hot...games are always close together except one or 2 games only...and that made fans come again to court..
