Thread: LNBP - Mexican Basketball League

  1. #1

    Default LNBP - Mexican Basketball League

    One or two hours ago the new mexian basketball season was starting.
    Personally interested in this league.

    I think Halcones Xalapa is again favorite to win the title. Biggest challenger should be also again Soles de Mexicali.

    Most likeable team imo Halcones UV Cordoba which plays extremely fast ball and scores around 120-110 (4*10) wasnt unusually in the last seasons.

    Here the official site: http://www.lnbp.com.mx/web2/

    Are there any other sites which we have to pay attention?

    Does anyone know why there are so many new teams in this league or does they change their names only?

    You re welcome!

    Two teams consistently dominating a league for a few years. That's a rare sight in Latin American basketball. At least we'll already recognize both at the Americas League


    PS: only 20 clubs? Didn't LNBP have more last year?

    MEX - Mexican Olympic Committee recognises ADEMEBA

    SAN JUAN (FIBA) - After a long battle, FIBA and FIBA Americas have finally succeeded in getting the Mexican Olympic Committee (MOC) to recognise the Mexican Basketball Association (ADEMEBA).

    This decision followed an exchange of numerous letters and various meetings between the parties involved.

    "We are very happy that we finally can welcome the Mexican Basketball Association back in the family," said Patrick Baumann, FIBA Secretary General and IOC member.

    "We believe that Mexico has huge potential in international basketball and they will certainly play an important role in the upcoming FIBA Americas championships and even maybe in FIBA world competitions."

    The MOC sent a letter to FIBA as proof that it had officially recognised ADEMEBA.

    Alberto Garcia, FIBA Americas Secretary General said: "I want to congratulate Felipe Muñoz, President of the Mexican Olympic Committee for his important decision to recognise ADEMEBA in order to continue the development of basketball against any court order."

    "The Olympic letter and the sports law in Mexico state clearly that the Olympic Committee has to recognise one institution if it has the recognition from FIBA and ADEMEBA is the only one that complies.

    "This decision allows the Mexican national teams to play the classification tournaments for the Central American and Caribbean Games, Pan-American Games in Guadalajara and FIBA Americas Championship (pre-Olympic) in both men and women," he added.

    Mexican basketball has been plagued by problems of an organisational and political nature over the past couple of years and lost international recognition in 2008.

    The former president of the Mexican Basketball Federation took this matter to court and did not allow the MOC to recognise another basketball organisation in the country.

    The MOC, Mexican government institution CONADE and FIBA agreed to create a Reorganisation Commission and called for an election to launch the new organisation as two different groups were claiming that right.

    The election took place in Monterrey late in 2008 and united a group of people who were working for Mexican basketball. That, in essence, is how ADEMEBA came to be created.

    Cool

    Play-offs just started.
    http://www.lnbp.com.mx/web2/

    I think it will be Xalapa and Cancun in the finals again as they are the only ones investing heavily into their rosters. And in the end, Xalapa wins it again, as they got the federation behind them. I'm rooting for Cancun. Hope they are going to represent Mexico internationally.

    Stephen Soriano, a US-Mexican is tearing up the league so far for the Pioneros.

    Does the LNBP have a limit on foreigners or just a limit on US players?
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    "MEXICO - LNBP (last update: Jan. 6, 2011)
    Limits per team: 3 import players .
    LNBP: at the top of import players each team can have additionally 2 South American players and 2 Mexican-American (Pochos) players. The salary range for import players is from $3,000 to $15,000 USD per month."

    I like the term "pocho" :-D

    Xalapa, Cancun, Puebla and Veracruz are through to the next round.
    Tampico and Nuevo Laredo as welll as surprising Potros Itson and Monterrey are fighting for the last two spots (Both match-ups are 2-2).

    Laredo meets Cancun in the finals...tough one to bet on, but I go with Cancun. New champ will be crowned this year. Mexican club teams do also well on the continent. Xalapa and Cordoba are in the Final Four and it goes down in Xalapa...hope my cousin attends the games

    Default Season 2011 2012

    New Season is starting soon. Latinbasket has not updated all rosters until now. We also can see new Teams this season (CORRECAMINOS de VICTORIA , BARRETEROS de ZACATECAS , AGUILAS ROJAS de SAN JUAN DEL RIO) taking part in the LNBP.
    Any infos about the strenght of the 14 teams?

    Correcaminos and Barreteros took already part a few seasons ago.

    But the official site isnt really up-to date, a few links to the team sites arent correct.
    The forum was a few years ago really informative, but is down for one or two years now.

    Can anyone else provide some information or are there any other informative sites available except latinbasket and lnbp.com.mx

    Does anyone know more about the rules in this league. I remember last year where Fuerza Regia and Soles changed a lot players over the whole season, i dont know exact numbers but if i have to guess, i would say Soles changed between 10 or 15 players.

    There was no limit on changes and teams were even able to change their players in the play-offs. Also, the play-offs had a strange mode that I could not understand at all. Hopefully, the LNBP will be doing a better job and restrict the signing of imports to some point.
    I guess Xalapa, Cancun and Mexicali will be back for the title-run. Add Cordoba and Nuevo Laredo to it.

    Here you can see the rosters, but it`s very hard to get infos about the players, since eurobasket/latinbasket wants to get paid for detailed infos/stats of the players at their last teams

    Quarterfinals in Mexico are starting pretty soon:

    Fuerza Regia (Monterrey) - Huracanes (Tampico)
    Toros (Nuevo Laredo) - Halcones (Xalapa)
    Pioneros (Cancun) - Soles (Mexicali)
    Halcones Rojos (Veracruz) v Barreteros (Zacatecas) or Abejas (Guanajuato)

    The second match-up is going to be interesting as the current champion is taking on the2010 champs.
    I see Fuerza Regia, Halcones, Pioneros and Halcones Rojos advancing.
    Soles and Toros might be tough to beat though.

    On a side note: Jorge Gutierrez and paco Cruz are doing great in the NCAA...and Ayon,Najera and Watson make it three in the NBA...
