    His stats in last WC qualifiers are good actually.. That ban forced him to stop playing.. He needs livelihood for his family.. If Sim Bhullar getting overseas contract until now then why not him? Goodluck to his new journey.. Another big loss for Indian basketball.. Hope that other basketball talents in India will not have the same feat as Satnam...

    Rui Hachimura will be out indefinitely due to personal reasons!!! I hope he will come back sooner... w/ Westbrook is gone, After Beal, he will be the one of scoring options for Wizards.... This will be his chance to level up his performance..

    What's Rui's reason? and whats with this new generation of Japanese athletes? Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka is also taking time off.

    While focusing on Mental Health is to be lauded, these youngins are making it a convenient excuse.

    On Naomi, She was disappointed with her performance last US Open and last Olympics when she was favored to win the Gold but she failed to deliver.. While Rui is still on questioned why he was on leave.. Maybe we will find out soon..

    Will Artino will be Chinese-Taipei's next Naturalized player

    https://focustaiwan.tw/sports/202110050023


    In a statement, the CTBA said the men's national basketball team is in dire need of tall players to boost its competitiveness in international competitions.

    A decision has been made, therefore, to allow Artino, who is 2.11 meters tall and plays center, to apply for naturalization, without having to renounce his American citizenship or meet the minimum five-year residency requirement, the CTBA said.

    Under the Nationality Act of Taiwan, one of the mandatory conditions for a foreign national to apply for naturalization is legal residency in the country for at least five consecutive years, during which they must have stayed for more than 183 days each year.

    Special dispensation is being sought for Artino, with the help of Legislators Chuang Jui-hsiung (莊瑞雄) and Wan Mei-ling (萬美玲) of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party and opposition Kuomintang, respectively, who last week attended a meeting at which the decision was made to pursue that approach, the CTBA said.

    Taiwan in 2013 granted citizenship to a foreign basketball player for the first time, under special dispensation, allowing American power forward Quincy Davis to join the national team in international competitions.

    While Davis was allowed to forego the five-year residency requirement, he had to relinquish his United States citizenship, and he gained naturalization just before the Taiwan team's registration for the 2013 FIBA Asian Championship.

    According to reports, the national team is looking for new foreign players ahead of the 2022 FIBA Asia Cup, and 2022 Asian Games and 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

    Is he good? If he make it on time, they have a chance, especially against China would probably can't tap Zhou Qi and Liu Chuangxing due to their NBL professional league commitment...

    Mahusay yan..but I think the versatility of their 3 position is really questionable.. kaya ni Hu long mao ang 4 and they can live with a mobile big for taiwan who can shoot (lee te wei, Chou po chen at 5) na survive nga nila twin tower ng taiwan .. dun sa 3 position nakikita kong butas(where Mark Johnson heat up and rebounded well for Guam).. unless mag 3 guard taiwan which they are capable of..(if riven ma available and can play 4) the decision of getting Artino is logical afterall and a no brainer
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    Yes sir. It's him.
    I've no idea if he got a lebanese passport before he turned 16 or not.

    Otherwise, Youssef Khayat is doing great in the French league (u21). He's the 3rd best scorer in the league and he's improving day after day.

    Jihad el Khatib played with Turkey u16 in the Fiba Europe last month. Good for him to play as a local in the turkish league. Hope he will choose Lebanon in the future.


    Our league is back but without foreigners (clubs can only bought 1 foreigner in the final 4 and final).
    Thats some quick news about the Lebanese basketball.

    Wow! He could be another Yao Ming.

    BTW, Jihad El Khatib (son of Lebanese basketball legend Fadi El Khatib) averaged 5 pts playing for the Turkish U-16 national team this year. Looks like the future is very bright for Lebanese basketball.
    "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    Damn.. I wish our basketball leagues (starting with NBL) would also consider signing U-18 talents into their respective programs. Sure, there are limitations and restrictions that need to be hurdled, but maybe the SBP and GAB can talk about loosening up their regulations on issuance of special licenses. Top-ranked U-18 prospects should be competing (or training/scrimmaging to a lesser extent) already with ex-pros and minor leaguers 5 to 10 years their senior, while not having to worry about the revocation of their amateur statuses.

    The aforementioned Akira Jacobs, born 2004, is 6'7 (2.00m) by the way, and plays both guard positions.
