    Former NBA Player Micheal Ray Richardson to Coach in Thailand - Jun 3, 2011 (by Eurobasket News)

    Former New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets player Michael Ray Richardson has been hired to coach the Chang Thailand Slammers of the countrys professional league.

    Richardson, 56, is the first coach hired under collaboration between the National Basketball Retired Players Association and basketball consulting firm Global Coach U.S., according to a news release from the association.

    Richardson, drafted No. 4 by the Knicks in 1978, played eight National Basketball Association seasons, the first four with New York, before a stint with the Golden State Warriors and three-plus seasons with the Nets.

    He averaged 14.8 points and seven rebounds per game before being banned from the league in 1986 after a third positive drug test. He later restored his relationship with the NBA, serving as a community ambassador.

    Richardson went on to play 14 seasons in Europe, and played and more recently coached in the Continental Basketball Association.

    The Albany Patroons of the CBA didnt renew his coaching contract in 2007 following a suspension for alleged anti-gay and anti-Semetic remarks, according to the Associated Press. Richardson apologized for the comments and denied that his intent was to be derogatory.

    THA - Suspended Thai federation takes important steps towards re-instatement

    BANGKOK – The parties at conflict in Thailand committed last Thursday to ending the dispute that has resulted in FIBA’s suspension of the Basketball Federation of Thailand (BAT) earlier in May this year, with the aim of being re-instated in time for the South East Asia Games, to be held in Indonesia in November.

    The conflict started in early 2010, with an investigation by the Ministry of Sport into the former Board of BAT, which found certain irregularities within the running of the federation. A new group was entrusted with running basketball affairs. Contested, the decision was brought in front of Thai courts, which led to FIBA’s suspension.

    The Presidents of the two opposing groups, Mr. Surasak Chinawongwatana and Mr. Kanapong Kaninworapan agreed to the setting up of a FIBA-led working group and signed a resolution that puts in place the framework for resolving the dispute and will lead to an Extraordinary Assembly to be held on 15 October 2011. As a result, all court cases are being withdrawn.

    The working group is led by FIBA Secretary General Patrick Baumann and FIBA Asia Secretary General Dato Yeoh Choo Hock. It includes IOC Member Mr. Nat Indrapana, Mr. Surasak Chinawongwatana and Mr. Kanapong Kaninworapan, on behalf of the Sports Authority of Thailand the Deputy Governor Mrs Somkid Pintong and FIBA Legal Commission Vice-President Mr. Ken Madsen.

    During the working group meetings of last week all parties agreed to the drafting and adherence to a new set of statutes for Thailand’s member federation of FIBA, until the document comes up for approval during an Extraordinary Congress to be held in October, while also giving the green light to a revised membership structure.

    If successful, the assembly will be followed by the lifting of the suspension by FIBA.

    Additionally and in the meantime, Mr. Surasak Chinawongwatana and Mr. Kanapong Kaninworapan agreed to ensure together, under the supervision of IOC member Nat Indrapana, a minimum number of activities domestically, in view of preparing Thailand’s national teams for the South East Asia Games.

    New Thailand Team to Join the ASEAN Basketball League in Season 3

    http://www.aseanbasketballleague.com...PhuXr8zwGf7Ivg

    Bangkok, Thailand: The AirAsia ASEAN Basketball league (ABL) will now have an additional team besides the San Miguel Beerman joining the ABL family. – Bangkok Basketball Holdings made an official announcement at the Golden Tulip Sovereign Hotel Bankok at 3.30PM today that they will be joining South East Asia’s inter-nation professional basketball league’s 3rd season which will start on the 14th of January 201Tom Griffin, owner of Bangkok Basketball Holdings commented “We feel that the ABL is positioned to be a force in the sports community, not just in ASEAN but throughout Asia. Bangkok Basketball plans to be a part of that growth. We are excited to be a part of basketball's growth in South East Asia.”
    Bangkok Basketball Holdings whose owners are Tom Griffin and Jeffrey Premer will be working with local basketball forces to choose its local players from a selected pool currently playing for the National team. The talent pool for basketball in Thailand is very strong they plan to give back to the community for continued growth. There are also plans to reach out to the community to foster the development of basketball capability in Thailand by a series of exchanges that will include visits by our coaches throughout Thailand together with players and sponsors alike to meet with and counsel players and coaches; coaches at elite levels as well as important coaches at the grassroots levels so that all levels of basketball have been reached to further the development of basketball.
    Team owner of the Westports KL Dragons, Mr. Ruben Gnanalingam commented, “It’s great that there has been two new teams joining the league, it is a big step forward for the expansion of the ABL and basketball in South East Asia as a growing sport. I am very sure that this is just the beginning and there will be more teams from other countries as well in time to come. The Westports KL Dragons would like to extend a warm welcome to the new ownership group in Bangkok on being part of the league. I am sure the level of competition is going to be higher in the league as we’ve seen how strong basketball in Thailand has become, referring to Thailand Slammers’ capture of the title this past season.
    General Manager of the Singapore Slingers, Michael Johnson added “The announcement of the Bangkok Basketball Holdings joining San Miguel as confirmed new teams for the 2012 ABL season is another huge boost to the league. Thailand will now have its own local rivalry with them joining the current ABL champion Thailand Slammers in the league. Fans of the ABL can look forward to a bigger and better ABL season starting January 2012.”
    Team owner of the Philippine Patriots, Dr. Mike Romero mentioned "I salute the whole ABL organization for another prized team recruit, after San Miguel Philippines, Bangkok Basketball. The ABL is truly becoming the biggest premiere basketball league in the whole ASEAN region. ABL is truly growing in leaps and bounds. The excitement between teams and countries is likewise growing. The ABL is truly the future of ASEAN basketball."
    Bangkok Basketball is currently interviewing potential coaches. They are seeking an individual that includes a professional playing career as well as a successful coaching history. BB considers this choice to be paramount in the success of the organization and is weighing options available. The selection of players will be collaboration between the management and the selected head coach.
    Chief Executive Officer of the ASEAN Basketball League, Mr. Kuhan Foo commented, “Bangkok Basketball Holdings is a welcome addition to the ABL. This reinforces the growth of the ABL in the past 2 seasons. With them on board it also shows that the basketball playing talent in the region is now increasing and with the inclusion of the new teams and with our foundation members now throwing out a larger net to seek talented players, it is going to be a bright future for basketball in the ASEAN region.”
    Bangkok Basketball Holdings will be having a contest soon for fans to decide their team name and also a chosen mascot to best represent their team in 2012.

    Top Performers
    UCLA: J. Anderson 14 Pts, 2 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk
    Kansas: E. Johnson 23 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl


    Kansas tops UCLA, reaches final of Maui Invitational


    Associated Press

    LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Kansas looked unbeatable early and flustered in the middle before securing a hard-earned victory in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational.

    All that work just to face an even more formidable challenge: No. 6 Duke, the undisputed king of Maui, in the championship game.
    Holding on after nearly blowing all of a 20-point lead, Kansas set up what could be one of the most exciting championship games in the Maui Invitational's 28-year history with a 72-56 win over UCLA on Tuesday night.
    O'Neil: Closer look at Kansas' win

    Kansas looked great in the first half, while UCLA made it interesting in the second half. Dana O'Neil takes a closer look at the Jayhawks' Maui Invitational win. Blog

    • Elijah Johnson's breakout game
    Two of college basketball's blue bloods in paradise, playing with a title on the line in a tiny gym in an atmosphere unlike any other.
    Yeah, this could be good.
    "I will bet the atmosphere for tomorrow night's game will be as good an atmosphere as this building's seen for this tournament," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "And this may be as good a neutral-court atmosphere as there is in college basketball, better than the NCAA tournament because you can feel the crowd."
    The Jayhawks almost blew their shot.
    Kansas (3-1) appeared as though it was going to run away from the Bruins at the start, going up 12 points in the first 6 minutes and building from there.
    The Jayhawks fizzled with a flurry of turnovers and defensive breakdowns to let UCLA back in it, then pulled away over the final 5 minutes for a harder-than-expected victory.
    Elijah Johnson scored 23 points, Thomas Robinson had 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Tyshawn Taylor added 13 points and six assists for Kansas.
    Next up for the Jayhawks is Duke, the undefeated four-time champions in Maui.
    "This is one of the games when you come to Kansas, you sign up for," Taylor said. "This is one of those games we'll probably always remember."
    The Bruins tried to ruin it.
    UCLA (1-3) got off to a brutal start and rallied to trim a 20-point lead down to five. The Bruins lingered for a little while before running out of steam, headed toward the third-place game instead of the championship.
    Tyler Lamb had 15 points and Jerime Anderson added 14 for UCLA.
    "We were right there," Anderson said. "That second-half comeback is much easier if we're even or closer in the first half. Some things don't go our way, we come back and if a team makes another run, that's the hardest thing to do is come back from two runs."
    The young Jayhawks were humbled a bit in a loss to No. 2 Kentucky at Madison Square Garden a week ago, but responded with a poised-down-the-stretch win over scrappy Georgetown to open the Maui Invitational.
    Kansas got off to a shaky start against the Hoyas, made a run to get the lead, then let Georgetown claw its way back. The Jayhawks grinded out the 67-63 win behind key plays down the stretch from Travis Releford, who hit two free throws with 15 seconds left and scrambled to dig out a loose ball after the Hoyas missed a shot.
    Robinson was the catalyst with 20 points, 12 rebounds and what Georgetown coach John Thompson III said felt like 24 dunks -- just the kind of aggression Self has been looking for from his dynamic big man.
    Robinson wasn't much of a factor against UCLA early, so Kansas spread it around.
    Swinging the ball around in halfcourt sets and getting out on the break, the Jayhawks opened the game with a 14-2 run and kept pushing. Kansas hit 12 of 24 shots in the half -- 5 of 9 from 3-point range -- had 10 assists and got 13 points from Johnson to lead 43-26.
    The Jayhawks still looked as though they were going to run away with it to start the second half, then went into a funk.
    Unable to stop the Bruins or hold onto the ball, Kansas went nearly 6½ minutes without a field goal as UCLA trimmed a 20-point lead down to five with 8 minutes left.
    The Jayhawks finally put a stop to UCLA's momentum with a couple of baskets by Robinson, then pulled away as the Bruins cooled off.
    "We knew they weren't going to just go away and lay down," Taylor said. "We got out to a big lead early, but we knew we had to continue to play. We just had to keep battling out there."
    UCLA opened a season of expectations in disappointing fashion, losing by double digits to Loyola Marymount and Middle Tennessee State. The Bruins avoided a potential meltdown in the Maui opener, turning a two-point halftime lead over Division II Chaminade into a blowout.
    UCLA blew the game open with a 29-3 run and turned away any thought of a comeback by blocking 12 of the Silverswords' shots in the 92-60 victory.
    But Kansas isn't anything like Chaminade, as the Bruins learned in a hurry.
    Unable to find any room against the Jayhawks' scrambling defense, UCLA missed its first six shots, had five turnovers and just two free throws until Reeves Nelson scored on a 3-pointer at the 13:36 mark.
    The best the Bruins could do after that was get within six points and Kansas didn't let that last, storming the Bruins a second time to push the lead to 19 before the half was over.
    Then something clicked for UCLA.
    Forcing turnovers and stroking 3-pointers, the Bruins went on a 12-0 run midway through the second half and kept dropping shots to pull within 57-52.
    That turned out to be it for UCLA, which will face No. 15 Michigan in the third-place game.
    "I was really happy the way the guys fought back in the second half," UCLA coach Ben Howland said. "We had it down to five ... and I think we ran out of gas."
