    Natt, Gaudet named basketball coaches

    The Basketball Federation of India on Tuesday appointed Kenny Natt and Pete Gaudet as the senior men’s and women’s team coaches respectively.

    The illustrious pair, which replaced Bill Harris and Tamika Raymond, will be aided by strength and conditioning coach Zal Penwell and based at the BFI headquarters in New Delhi.
    “We are excited beyond words to bring on board these three incredible coaches, who will play a critical role in helping us achieve our vision of growing basketball in India by developing and showcasing the best players and coaching talents in the country,” said BFI secretary Harish Sharma.

    Natt, who played for the Indiana Pacers and the Utah Jazz, has coached the likes of Karl Malone (Utah Jazz) and Lebron James (Cleveland Cavaliers) during his 13-year coaching career in the NBA. Gaudet, on the otherhand, has been involved in American college basketball for over 40 years.

    “The appointment of these world-class coaches marks the beginning of an exciting journey,” Sharma added. The coaches will be involved in the development of the sport at the grassroots level.

    Good luck to Kenny Natt, as he is a former Sacramento Kings head coach although subsequently back in the 2008-2009 NBA Season.

    Without wanting to discredit Sri Lanka, but even me and a couple of friends would have done better against India. It's a shame, that the Mid-Asia section is run by someone,who is not...well you know. First India's sub-section and then Afghanistan's problems...FIBA Asia did nothing to prevent this crappy decisions.

    Mid-Asia's president is former Sri Lanka NT coach Ajith Kurupu...the secretary general is from India so I think the problem goes much higher up than who runs the Mid-Asia section.

    Completely agree, and Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan were much lower than Sri Lanka.

    Afghanistan has no Basketball federation and doesnt have the NBA/IMG running operations and invested in their country so what real power do they have to pay the necessary bribes that other countries can to ensure favorable treatment?

    NBA appointed Indian Head Coach Kenny Natt, who reportedly agreed to serve at least two years as NT Coach, has decided to go young and big. Four players who are under 20 years old and at least 6 foot 9, Amrit Pal Singh, Amjyot Singh, Dishtant Shah, and Satnam Singh Bhamara are on the final roster for Wuhan. Singh must be the youngest player at the tournament at 15.

    India wont beat Korea or Lebanon in group A, but a win against Malaysia (likely), would put them into the second round where they'll lose to Iran, Taiwan and Qatar and end up in 11th place overall.

    Counting the qualification games and the AC, the two best teams they would beat are Malaysia and Sri Lanka. It would have been interesting to see them play Afghanistan team because basically they're an even match.

    Irony of the whole situation is the Afghan team is basically made up of Americans and funded by Marshall Institute, a American foundation, and India is funded/supported/controlled by American companies NBA/IMG, so in the end its USA vs USA.

    Article on how Basketball is looking up in India, now that USA Company IMG owns Indian Basketball and NBA appointed strength and conditioning coach Zak Penwall has taught the players to wash their hands.

    “When I first came in, players used to come to me often complaining of stomach bugs,” Penwell says. “Then I found out that they had no soap in the hostel, and that they regularly ate after practice without washing their hands. I went out and bought soap for all of them. Then the soap got stolen! So I went out and got more.”

    I don't know about your citizenship laws but there are so many Indians in the US and other basketball playing countries. Why not take advantage of that and invite them over? Heck there's even a significant pool of good Fil-Indians here in the Philippines playing in the college leagues and in the pros (not sure). We even have a Filipino-Indian Basketball League here.

    *If all the good guys posted in that thread can be confirmed to be of Indian descent I'd tell you they'd give your current national team a run for their money... And there must be a lot more in the US.

    Inviting good foreign trained ballers might just give your basketball program a boost and encourage locals to play the sport, much like what our football federation is doing in fielding Fil-Europeans for our national teams.

    my opinion india wants indian sports to be for indians only. its a sort of national pride thing.

    if you have parents that are indian but you grow up in usa/canada, etc they dont look at you as indian, but as foreigner.

    india wants their nt basketball to be natural born only, who grew up playing in indian bfi tournaments, state and national level, starting at youth level, most likely because they want players whose careers can be controlled by bfi. players who complained about the system or tried to play pro leagues outside india, such as robinson and tj sahi, were blackballed.

    indian american/canadian players are not welcome to tryout for the national team. i tried two years back and found out.

    as for naturalizing players like some countries, there's no pro league to bring players over to naturalize them.

    i think you mean 'classification' game.

    but yes, not a good performance, considering india was given nba coaches at womens and mens level, plus strength and conditioning coaches from nba/img, to prepare them months ahead ... and they still lost every mens and womens basketball game at asian championships, even to malaysia and indonesia

    If that's the case...why India hired an American coach?
