    I am fed up with Fadis nonsense tbh.
    There is reason everyone calls him abou lira, we all know it he refused to play for NT years ago.Now he likes "Pierre Kakhia" because Pierre is loaded with money.He plays for NT for money.
    Also Ahmad Ibrahim >>> Nadim or Amir.

    Will Ware play for Jordan? This "official" rosters on FIBA site are kinda weird. No Pelle (played), no Ware..

    Congrats to Lebanon. Hardluck S Korea.
    It was a high level game especially the Q1 and Q2.
    We played great, we were good at the defense but we were struggling with the koreans way of playing attack (they used so much pick and roll, they killed us with this in the Q1 but after that Butautas adjust our defense).
    Arakji was very good but damn he must score his FT !!!
    Haidar a real beast.
    BTW Pelle just played 6 minutes (Q1).
    Overall it was a good start, it's never easy to play the first game especially against a great team like Korea.
    Special mention to the fans ! You were amazing !

    The Lebanon - Korea game was great until the last minute. Reminds me of the intensity in 2015 FIBA Asia where these two teams played. Pelle looks lost in the offense and hardly contributed. He's too young to be an instant impact of a player. This is where Haidar and Abd El Nour have risen to the occasion.

    Australia - Japan game looked very easy for the Boomers. Japan had no shotblocking presence to start with. The likes of Ota, Harimoto and Takeuchi do not even jump to contest a shot, just raise the hand and that's it. Aussie guards had a field day going into the lane off a screen.

    Congrats to NZ, hard luck to us.
    I said that we lack good shooters and i was right about that. We can not win a game with only 2 3's. Arakji was stopped but come on i said it in an old post ! Fahed > Arakji... he doesn't know how to shot a FT !!! Unfortunately it's black or white with him.
    Butautas should let play Pelle more minutes ! He's a monster under the basket and all the game they were killing us inside so give him more minutes !
    But credit to NZ, respect to them !
    Now we will probably play against Chinese Taipei or Japan and if we win we will play against Iran or Philippines !

    Lebanon - New Zealand was easily the game of the night. Youngsters now finding their footing and they are surprisingly athletic.

    Their youngsters are good. Good composure against the home team and its veterans.

    Good luck to your next game, Lebanon. The second seed is still up for grabs.

    kazakhstan's performance is becoming worse as years goes. have anyone notice that? they are becoming the korea's bitch now. i thought in 2007, they looked promising. then 10 years later, they are getting beaten black and blue by their asian opponents. seriously? korea were bamboozled by russia and lithuania - former soviet countries just like the kazakhstan.

    why am i getting disappointed? because just like russia and lithuania, kazakh players possess the size for a basketball team. however, something is wrong within their training. just wondering.

    No doubt ARAKJI >>> Fahed. Not a chance. Fahed was only good at NT level some players like Fahed Bawji succeed with NT while they play below par for their clubs.
    ARakji plays great both places, nt and club.


    The reason we lost, is because Fadi el Khaib choked down the stretch.He made costly two turnovers, missed couple of shots.. he tried playing hero ball which affected the other players. It should be a team.

    Arakji better overall player but not a better player when it counts. Fahed at his prime yesterday would scored easily minimum 18 points ! Arakji always struggle against PG who has speed and know how to defend ! Ok he's still young but missing FT in korea game and NZ like bassem balaa it's a disgrace !
    Fadi was alone he did everything so no the reason why we lost is the very poor performance of Arakji ! I guess you are a Riyadi fan to hate Kakhia Fadi and to say that Arakji is >>>>>> Fahed !
    Be objective Arakji was 0 yesterday he scored 2 points ?
    Khatib against korea was not good and he still scored 16 points
    You know what i mean ? Even when you have a day off you have to score a minimum and that's what Arakji lacks !

    Unfortunately NO, FIBA asked for a Passport with 5 Years and he has one with only 1 Year.
    He even might not play against Iran if they don't solve the Problem until Sunday.

    Do other countries see Philippines as a power in Asian basketball?

    There's this weird feeling in me that doesn't think so.

    For today's games, Lebanon needs to win Kazakhstan and for Korea to win NZ by 3-8 points to get top seed in Group C.

    NZ just needs to win Korea or lose by only 1-2 points to keep top spot, while Korea needs to win NZ by 9+ points to get top spot.

    I think who knows basketball in the Asian level for sure for them Philippines is a powerhouse. Since 2011 you are back in the top 4 and you played good basketball in the world stage against Argentina Croatia France NZ etc.
    BTW it's not too much important how others see your NT because the answer was and will always be in the court.

    David Andersen will miss the rest of the tournament due to a shoulder injury. He will be flying home so AUS will play with an 11 man squad.

    Interesting finish between Korea and New Zealand, where the Koreans let New Zealand hold the ball for the last shot despite needing more than a one-point win to advance. Guess they figured they couldn't make up the necessary points and just wanted the win?

    Don't you think the better play was letting Heo miss both free throws to extend the game?
