    yeah, now that you mention it.

    Bad for the sport though. I thought FIBA's aim in Asia is to make the sport more popular. Them choosing China over other countries it's stupid.

    China is a vast country and another city with a better climate for that time of the year could have hosted the event (besides, Wuhan isn't much hotter than Tianjin, which hosted the last event)

    The problem with holding the event in September is that school and practice has started for NCAA players and this is a bit problematic for some teams (Iran, Lebanon,...), because they can't have their players around for that long for the practice/main event.

    we've got no problem with it

    The PBA season is over by September ^_^.

    Most of our college players have already graduated so I guess the players' availability is at minimum

    he's actually practicing/playing with the team since May. I think he's currently on vacation in the US and will be back after the holidays.

    It's Banchero and Stanhardinger who are pending.

    I would have wanted to see Kazemi, the guy who dunked over Rudy Gay. Do hope we see him in the Championships

    The most neutral country is Singapore.. Not because I live there now... But because its a progressive country which is ideal for international sporting events.. There is less traffic, has a decent national stadium (although only one) to hold the venue, facilities, etc... I mean if it cant be the Philippines, then at least have Singapore be the first SEA nation to host the event since I dont know when... I mean just look at the last Youth Olympics, and see how successful it was particularly the FIBA 33, wherein the games are always packed with spectators...

    They wont have problems with getting fans in the seats either.. There is a sizeable Filipino and Chinese community... Plus a number of foreign nationals from the Middle East and India...I mean the country is a melting pot of different nationalities..And you can be sure that Star Sports will cover the event since the channel is based here in Singapore...But really, its not because of selfish reason on why I wanted to be staged in Singapore..

    india wont host anytime soon ... to understand why india is so behind in fiba asia ... they were going to build finally build a modern indoor basketball stadium in delhi, the bfi even announced it in a press conference, said they would be using it as their 'National Basketball Academy.'
    “The blue print for the stadium is ready and the work order has been given. The construction will begin by the July first week,” BFI Sec-General Harish Sharma said.
    Then the Delhi high court and Indian Supreme Court declared the construction 'illegal' on the grounds that "the proposed indoor stadium would require installation of a 100-tonne AC plant, which would be hazardous for the environment." So it was demolished one week into construction.

    AC Predictions: if all teams go at full strength, I think Iran might have the edge on China with Yao out .. Lebanon, Korea, Japan, Qatar, and Philippines

    at the asian games Iran was without their top three players and only lost to host China in the semifinal by blowing the lead in the final minute.

    Are they sending a team stronger than the one in the Asian Games? Because if they send the same team, it will be a bad showing. The 40-point loss to Korea was too much.

    I agree that Iran has the best chances. They almost beat China in the Asian games without Haddadi and Samad. This really shows how the national team program of Iran is really strong.

    Any new faces for Lebanon?

    No Jordan team will have a better team,some of their experienced players weren't playing at the Asiad such as Sam Daghlas,Moussa Al Awadi,Zaid Abbas... but i dont think their team in 2011 will be that good, Rasheim Wright has clearly stated that whether his old team Zain pays him the rest of the money they still owe him or he won't be back to Jordan, Zaid El khas and Ayman Idais has retired from the NT and i dont see any young strong faces coming off the scene.

    For Lebanon, there will surely be new blood in the team

    PBA season will probably end in august. theirs enough time for the chosen PBA players to gel with gilas boys.

    2013 PHL will host the FIBA asiad championship. as i read elsewhere, the arena near MOA will be finish by 2012.

    i believe the team lebanon sent to the asian games was basically their B or C team, which explains why they were crushed by china and korea.

    qatar is the most inconsistent team, they can look great one game, and terrible the next, 22 point loss to philippines and a 42 point loss to iran at asian games with their full NT team...maybe qatar basketball federation should expand outside of africa to import their NT players...theyre not getting their money's worth...but qatar has so much money they probably dont care.
