    Nice work--thank you for sharing-
    Thanks so much for this. I appreciate the effort. It really helps a lot.
    Glad to hear you're using this: I plan to keep it much more aggressively up-to-date than has been the case in the past, but don't hesitate to let me know if you find errors or need clarifications.

    - yet another season w/o money (need ~130k usd for training camps and participation in international competitions; previous years budgets here)
    - Boniciolli is not head coach of nt as it reported recently
    - seems next year situation will not change and most likely nt will not participate in fiba asia champ 2013

    Pro basketball: McCaskey grad Jerry Johnson a hit in Kazakhstan
    By MIKE GROSS, Sports Columnist
    mgross@lnpnews.com

    Jerry Johnson has become an unofficial citizen of the world during a decade of playing pro basketball in places like Turkey, Lithuania, Poland, France and Cyprus.

    He's about to become an official citizen of …

    Kazakhstan?

    Kazakhstan.

    Johnson, 31, played high school basketball at McCaskey and college ball at Rider, which will induct him into its athletic hall of fame next month.

    He just completed his second season with the B.C. Astana Tigers, who have won seven of the last nine titles in the country's pro league, the Kazakh National League.

    Johnson averaged 11.2 points and 4.4 assists in 28 minutes per game.

    Astana is the country's capital city. B.C. Astana is the league's only team that also competes internationally.

    The team's coach, Matteo Boniciolli, also coaches the national team. Johnson is persuing dual citizenship so that he can compete with the national team in the World Basketball Championship next year and down the road, perhaps, in the 2016 Olympics.

    "The (national) team is developing, and they want to do more," Johnson said during a noisy phone call from Astana on Tuesday.

    "They asked me if I wanted to be a part of it, and I said, 'Why not?' "

    There was laughter — not at Johnson, presumably — and a loud voice in the background.

    "That's my driver," Johnson said.

    Yes, he has a driver, and a nice place to live and an international school for his kids to attend.

    Kazakhstan is north of Afghanistan, south of Russia, west of China and about as far from the NBA as you can get without venturing to outer space, but it's a relatively oil-rich country, and Astana is a big (population: 775,000), modern city.

    If you can ball, and Johnson can, and you're willing to globe-trot, and Johnson is, you can live nicely in some far-flung outposts.

    "It's not really that unusual," Johnson said of his dual-citizenship plans.

    There are some well-known examples.

    Serge Ibaka, the Oklahoma City Thunder's fine power forward, was born in the Congo, moved to Spain as a teenager, became a Spanish citizen in 2011, and helped Spain to an Olympic silver medal in 2012.

    Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls fled his native Sudan with his family during a Civil War and lived in Egypt and Great Britain before playing high school and college (Duke) basketball in the U.S.

    He became a British citizen in 2006, and has played for the British national team.

    You do have to be willing and able to globe-trot, though. Johnson returned to Lancaster Wednesday, and will be here for about a month.

    Then he'll head to Italy (recall the coaches' name, Matteo Boniciolli) for training camp, and some games with the Italian U20 national team.

    The team will return to Kazakhstan briefly, and schedule games here and there with Lithuanian and other pro opponents.

    They'll head to China in July, and prepare to compete in the FIBA Asian Championships, scheduled for Aug. 1-11 in Manila, Philippines.

    (The original host city was Beirut, Lebanon, but what with the Syrian Civil War, general unrest in the Middle East and all …)

    The top three finishers in that event earn berths in next year's World Championships, commonly known as the FIBA World Cup, in August and September in Madrid, Spain.

    The World Cup in contested every four years. The United States beat host Turkey in the 2010 gold-medal game.

    Since the tournament opened to professionals in 1994, MVP awards have been won by Shaquille O'Neal, Dirk Nowitski, Pau Gasol, Kevin Durant and, during the NBA lockout in 1998, some dude from Yugoslavia.

    Yes, Johnson probably, eventually, will return to Lancaster and stay a while. He has a foundation, through which he'd like to run camps and AAU teams. There has even been talk of his coaching, or helping to coach, at McCaskey someday.

    "Not yet, though," he said. "I'm not done playing."

    Or wearing out his passport.

    That's good news to hear! I don't think Kazakhstan will do anything special but at least they will have a descent team and should aim to qualify to the second round.

    Anything new with the Kazkahstan NT? I know they have arranged a tune-up game with the PH but what are their NT developments so far?

    They will probably be the least scouted team of the tournament who could actually be a slight threat. No idea to be honest because if they were playing any games against other NT's we would have heard some news about this... I'm guessing they are having internal camps in Kazakhstan

    Kazakhstan reportedly naturalized Jerry Johnson from BC Astana. Then should've travel to Italy and Slovenia for training camps, after that to Manila to face Phillipines

    Latest news regarding Kazakhstan:


    24/07/2013 KAZ - We lack in international experience, but our enthusiasm will make up for that: Boniciolli

    MANILA, Philippines (27th FIBA Asia Championship): Kazakhstan are back in the FIBA Asia Championship fold, having missed the previous edition at the 26th FIBA Asia Championship at Wuhan (China) in 2011, and bring that extra zing into any FIBA Asia competition, with their characteristic style of play adding the ‘European flavor’ to the fray.

    The Central Asian team is one of the first to arrive for the 27th FIBA Asia Championship to be played in Manila from Aug 1-11 and coach Matteo Boniciolli is confident of putting out a creditable show that should make amends for their absence two years ago.

    In this exclusive chat, the 51-year-old Boniciolli, an Italian by origin, talks about Kazakhstan’s chances and challenges in the competition.

    Excerpts

    FIBA Asia: How does it feel that Kazakhstan are playing in the championship once again?

    Boniciolli: I think the participation of Kazakhstan once again in the FIBA Asia Championship is the result of the great work that Samruk Kazynia (National Welfare Fund, who are the major sponsors of the team), Valeri Tikhonenko (1988 Olympic gold medalist Russian player) and the Kazakhstan National Federation have done to improve Kazakhstan Basketball.

    FIBA Asia: How are the preparations? Can you tell us something about your preparations?

    Boniciolli: Our preparation has been good. We have been working for the last 45 days in Italy, Slovenia and Kazakhstan. We have improved a lot during this period.

    FIBA Asia: What are the strengths of team at this point?

    Boniciolli: We have a good balance in the team between inside and outside game. We have been working to build a consistent defensive system. We lack a bit in international experience, but our enthusiasm to participate in such an important event will help a lot.

    FIBA Asia: What are the challenges facing the team?

    Boniciolli: To use each minute of this competition to improve the small details that make the difference between a team and a good team.

    FIBA Asia: How do you expect Triple J to contribute?

    Boniciolli: Jerry Johnson will be one of the most exciting players in this entire competition. He will help the team a lot with his great experience and leadership.

    FIBA Asia: What do you think of your groupings?

    Boniciolli: At this level, you have to respect all your opponents. You have to bring in great efforts to win against any opponent at this level.

    FIBA Asia: Any other comments.

    Boniciolli: We have come to in Manila to compete, to enjoy this great experience and do our best in taking a shot at going to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup to be played in Spain from Aug 30-Sept 14 next year.

    expecting more from PHI, team that played 14 prep games this summer (for KAZ it was 4th).
    nice game for backups: Murzagaliyev 24min, 12pts, 2rb, 3as, Bondarovich 16min, 6pts, 2rb and Dvirniy 11min, 2/2 FG, 7pts
    Johnson, Ponomarev, Klimov - nothing to say, it is their level (btw Klimov broke arm in last game against VEF on May). unfortunately Jerry made 2 TO at the crucial moment... but now it's just a preparation
    it wasnt good game for several other kazakh players (worth noting that they had a long flight from Astana to PHI just before the game): Yargaliev (start sg) - only 19min, 0/4FG. too limited time for Evstigneev (5 fouls, main C) and Zhigulin - both only 13min.
    so seems they even didnt show 3/4 of full potential (likely its Boniciolli decision). sadly that KAZ havent Bose/Kolesnikov (apparently problem with passport, especially after adding JJ) and Gavrilov (injury? not imagine any other reason for not including him) in final12. too small rotation minimize chances for World Cup qual (declared target)

    If teams can't stop Johnson you'd be tough to beat. Thing is, he needs to play at a high level during the crucial games but teams #1 priority on defense would be to stop/contain him. Good luck.
    If there is no basketball in heaven, i am NOT going.

    SMALLBALL, bitches..

    Default Could someone make an introduction about this team?

    I've watched the PHI vs KAZ game

    but because of the video quality I can hardly tell who is who.

    Is there anyone who can make an introduction about this year's Kazakhstan team?

    Tall teams who can shoot from the outside = Taiwan team's nightmare...Scary matchup for Taiwanese to match up with Kaz rather than the Koreans..
