    Maybe those NBA players can affect the "importance to organizers"

    lebanon have 2 XNBA players:
    matt freije / jackson vroman ...
    2 NCAA div1 players
    + the best asian player of all time fady el khatib


    so lebanon have also important players

    they deserve w WC

    and lebanon have been in the world cup in 2002 and 2006 the only team that is able to defeat the 2 billion chineese IN FULL POWER..while DR HAVE NEVER BEEN IN THE WORLD CUP SINCE 1978(NOT SURE ABOUT THE DATE)

    SO LEBANON CHANCES ARE HIGHER
    check these websites

    lebanon basketball NT new design

    i.e.
    Lebanon and turkey are neighbors...fans from here attending turkey 2010 much more that dominican fans....since DR very far from turkey...+ politics

    Secretary of FIBA Americas is being interviewed and he said that in theory, Canada has a better chance to get a wildcard than DR, because of history, economics and others

    Is anyone watching the FIBA broadcast, seem a little biased to DR. Talking about what they should do next year before Turkey. Though I'll give them credit saying DR needs to work on their egos.

    Canada is absolutely killing the Dominican from 3, shooting 10-19

    But it's still tied 56-56

    One quarter left, trip to Turkey on the line!
