    Default Interbasket Interview with Rony Fahed

    Hey all, I apologize for the turnaround on this interview, I have been super-buys and a little sick the last week. This is Interbasket's first ever interview, the first of many many more, I hope. Questions were posed by members of Interbasket, specifically from this thread. Feel free to add to this thread as I will be sending this forum link to Rony so he can check it out, and if we're lucky, he might register and post some responses.

    So without further wait....

    IBN: what were you thinking when you took those two 3-pointers against qatar last year when the score was 69-69?
    Fahed: Actually there was no time to think, the decision was last second. I was feeling it from the begining of the game, but what I know is that i am not afraid to take those kinda of shots anytime and against whomever.

    IBN: How would you describe the current status of basketball in Lebanon and what we might see from Lebanon in the future?
    Fahed: we have a very good basket ball,we prove it and the junior national team did prove it also by qualifying to the world championship this year,but needs new ideas to improve the league and more sponsorchip,we need to be 100% professional..

    IBN: Do you ever see yourself in the NBA?
    Fahed: It's the best, I always imagine to have a shot and see how is it like.
