    Default Predicting the Final four in FIBA Asia Championship

    I didn't see a thread about it,so i decided to start it somehow!

    Predict the Final four teams(I mean who will be first,then second ,then the bronze medalist and the 4th team).

    Also predict the MVP and top scorer of the championship!

    Mine goes with:

    1)Iran
    2)China
    3)South Korea
    4)Jordan/Philippines

    MVP: Sun Yue
    Top scorer: Yi Jian Lian

    I had a question from the mods too.
    Can we run a prediction league for the members during the Asian Championship? So that each member predicts the scores of games starting from the preliminary round till the final game. And we can have a system of scoring for the predictions based on the margin and something like that.

    I think this will make the games even more enjoyable for members(even the games gaining less attention on paper).

    Feel free to post your thoughts on this issue.

    please don't let predicting that place, because you don't know which team will win the tournament.

    That's exactly the difference between prediction and knowing! You predict when you're not sure.

    If you don't have the will to predict then don't bro.

    Predicting is fun stuff, even I didn't follow all the teams' news before this Asian Championship, but gladly would participate in it

    System might be simple, we used smth similar to predict Euroleague games.

    You get the winner right 3pts
    ----------------- wrong -2pts

    Pts difference bonus:

    You've hit the exact difference +5pts
    Missed it by 1pt +4
    -------- by 2pts +3
    -------- by 3pts +2

    Of course you might change intervals, f.e. missed 1 to 3pts, 4 to 6 , 7-10 and etc.

    1-china
    2-iran
    3-south korea
    4-jordan

    ps : i believe this year Philippine team is great and i wanted to add them in the final 4 but i do notice they always choke in big games so they might end up 3rd in the second round and meet south korea in the quarters and go out.

    too early to predict but quite friendly and without any bias, the only team that has sealed a place in the semis is China i would say,bcs of their preperations and bcs it's being held in Wuhan.
    Iran hasent impressed me so far at all,specially the games they played against the philipines and japan B, and the performance they put up in the european tournement (coming in dead last after teams like romania and ukraine and portugal), i wouldnt be surprised if i dont see them in the semis.
    The team that has impressed me so far is the philipines,they are playing with heart and fighting and i wouldnt be surprised if i see them in the semis after a long time.
    same goes for Jordan after they're poor showing in the belarus tournement (loosing all their games by 30+ points)

    so am gona go for China.

    as for the 3 remaining teams, i think it's gona be between: Jordan,Lebanon,Iran,Qatar,Philipines,Korea and maybe Japan.

    and as far as Lebanon is concerned, i think we have to wait and check what kind of naturalised player we're gona be having on our roster, but am sure that we can make the finals with a good foreigner and good preparations,but if things continue as they are now, i would be satisfied with a quarter final finish

    good analysis but still friendly games are not very indicative.

    Well guys,please express your thoughts on the prediction league for all FIBA Asia Championship 2011 Games as well as predicting the final four.

    Please bring up fun and logical formats,for how predictions should be marked,depending on the margin and other things so we can come up with a nice and reasonable format of scoring for the games.

    i think :
    - predicting china will lose the game gives u an instant win if u nail it
    - predicting lebanon will lose the game strips from u 5 points whatever the result
    no seriously i like the idea . other then the margin and predicting the winner right we should make something like this for example :
    if lebanon is facing jordan( usually equal chances between the 2). u get 5 points if u predict right the winner and u lose 5 if u predicted wrong.
    however if lebanon is facing Malaysia ( probability of lebanon winning is way higher) u get 5 points if u predicted right that lebanon will win and 10 points if u predict right that malaysia will win and vice versa if u got it wrong.

    for the first two rules!

    About the bold part i don't know how many games we'll have like that,and I don't think anyone will predict a Malaysia win in such a game.So the prediction and the scoring will be pointless whatsoever.

    I say let's think of a system that gets you a scoring point between 0 and 10 based on what you predict having the possibility to get all scores starting from 0 to 10.Now how the numbers should be assigned can be an issue to think about.
