Thread: Is this the end of a Legend?

    Unhappy Is this the end of a Legend?

    Do you think this is the end of the game time of Fadi (Personally NO DISRESPECT to him, he is a brilliant player with a gentle and friendly nature. Probably the best forward in Asia Ever. Moreover he has been very nice with me ). These is what I saw.

    2007:

    MPG:37.5
    PPG: 27.3
    RPG:6.1
    APG:2.3
    PTS: 218
    FG%: 55
    3P%: 36.7
    FT%: 85.2

    2nd top scorer in tournament.
    Least score in a match : Vs Japan, 29 min, 17 pts.
    Highest Score: Vs Korea, 40 min, 32 points.

    2009

    MPG: 31.2
    PPG: 13.4
    RPG:4.7
    APG:2.7
    PTS: 121
    FG%: 48.7
    3P%: 34.5
    FT%: 75.6

    17th highest scorer in tournament.
    Least score in a match : Vs China, 26 min, 2 pts.
    Highest Score: Vs Indonesia, 32 min, 29 points.

    And moreover some good teams and players were missed in this tourney, Micheal Mandaley being the one stars. As a footnote, I would like to add is the standard of this years Asia Basket gone down? Your views.....

    Dont worry about him..
    He was out of shape that's all and he was under order from the coach to play with the team so the team would have some kind of chemistry bcz tehre is 2-3 new players(originaly from lebanon)..
    And the asain standards have went up not down..You see Before this year nobody on Asia could be a real challenge for china..As for this year this have been prooven WRONG..Lebanon lost 1 time Vs China by 3 points and missed at last seconds a 3 point shot and in the semi-finals.If $$ didnt talk Lebanon would have won So standards are going up and Leabnon is most likely to get w WC for turkey..
    As for Iran its still the same lame old iran ,the only reason they won is because china was tired from the match Vs Leabnon in the day before.

    Haha, you're pathetic.
    First of all, Lebanon wouldn't have a chance against Iran.. Iran crushed the same team Lebanon lost to twice and then once vs Jordan who beat Lebanon twice as well.

    And what is this crap about China losing just because they were tired? Haha, so Iran didn't play the a game the day before like China, ha? They played the semi's the same day and Iran's game vs. Jordan was even closer, don't be retarded.

    You should be glad China won against Lebanon because Iran would have busted some Lebanese butt...

    fadi is not over but he must lose some weight he used playy when he was in his 20 s with 108 kg he cant play in his 30 s with 108 kg since his athletic abilty is not the same as before so loosing some kgs will get him back

    Nope, there is more talent on the iranian team, and because they were the defending champs, players trusted each other more. Also there are 40 minutes of play time in a game, Fadi averaged 37 in 2007 and 31 in 2009. his best scoring game in 2007 he scored 32 in 40 minutes but on 8 less minutes in 2009 he scored just 3 less. As far as Im concerned, 2009 Fadi is better than 2007.

    I forgot to mention proof that the Iranian trusted each other more in 2009. Look at Fhadis assists average. It was better in 2009 than 2007 even though 2007 Fhadi averaged 6 more minutes.

    I don't care if there's a Fadi El Khatib haters in here... all I can say is that he was Lebanon's basketball: "The Best There Was! The Best There Is! The Best There Will Ever Be!"... he is one of my first favourite players outside the Philippines, the NBA and the Australian NBL...

    And btw, Iran faced Jordan in semi-final and Jordan won twice vs Lebanon in the tournament and it was a closer game as well so if someone should be tired in the finals it should have been Iran. You son, you're living in your own world.

    man well said...i agree 100%...fadi will remain the best player and he can play till 2014 but he has to control his weight....i hope we get next year's wild card...
    with another system of coaching....fadi can definitely shine again
    History will write --> "In 2009, China stole the asian cup from Lebanon"

    Speaking from a Philippine fan perspective, he has done his share for Lebanon. If he retires from international competition, hopefully people will not remember him for his performance in this year's edition but his entire contribution for his entire career.

    We got to know him here because of the Lebanon-Philippines exhibition games and i can say without a doubt that he earned the respect of basketball fans here.
    If there is no basketball in heaven, i am NOT going.

    SMALLBALL, bitches..

    Wow that picture in this thead looks nothing like how he looked in this past ABC. Drop like 20 pounds of fat and put on some muscle and he'll probably last till at least after the next olympics.

    Well to be honest Fadi is far from being done yet!!he had a bad championship
    but its not over yet..he is 30 now he can still give at least 4 years wit no problems at all before he starts dropping...i know for sure that Fadi is one of those player that work very hard on them selves thats why he reached this level...he works out every day for 6-7 hours (gym $ basketball training)..anyway he had several problems this year in his league and he gaind weight..by next eason he will be ok...

    there is no end for a legend, if fadi retires he would surely have more oppurtunities to work with the sport...i telling you all i have never seen an asian guy play like this, i have to say the 1999-2006 lebanese team would be nothing ( not really competitive ) with out him...he is a comp[lete player....its ashame though he was in terible shape this year

    Ur such an idiot with no logical reasoning.

    Iran had an easy way.

    End of Discussion.

    There's a proverb that applies here :

    They say , when the wise man points to the moon, the idiot looks at the finger.


    Guess who s the idiot

    Your mother is.

    How did Iran have the easy way when they faced the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th, 14th best team of the tournament. The only team they didn't face in the top 8 was Lebanon and since Iran crushed China who won against Lebanon twice and then won against Jordan who won against you bigtime twice, first with 17 points and then with 14 so Lebanon would be an easy task for Iran. So what do we see here? Some lebanes bums acting like they are the true champions.. seriously, your team is pretty bad, you can't even win with imports, that's pathetic.

    Well let us see, iran faced only CT as a strong team and that was in the first round.Then they played agianst kuwait and uzbekestan(easy games right).Then in the 2nd they played tougher games but srill easy for iran agianst philipines and Japan.Iran expected a tough game against Korea but that was the worse shoting game i have ever seen for korea. Then in the semi's u faced jordan.Well if u watched the game ull see that there was big margin throughout the game only in the last 4 mins there was some competition.SO what do u think who is the the fresh team.If u still think Iran was exhausted then we sure know who s the one looking at the finger
