    hmmm... Philippines?

    since 1990 only 4 times they sent their best available players. 1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002 asian games. they finished 2nd, 4th, 3rd and again 4th after losing to korea by a point(freak buzzer-beating trey) for the right to face china for the gold medal in who would have thought, korea. they defeated twice the world champioship bound lebanon by a ragtag team hastily formed 3 days before the match. and they only saw the B team. lebanon's coach once said during an interview "you beat us twice but who's going to the world championship?" the world watched the world championship unfold expecting to see the best team without knowing that there are countries who are a lot better just watching on their tv sets at home.

    Thumbs up Who is the best in ASIA??? Read our HIstory!!!

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The national basketball team of the Philippines is one of the best-performing Asian teams in the international tournaments, winning a bronze medal in the 1954 FIBA World Championship for Men and fifth-place finish in the Olympic Basketball Tournaments, best finishes of any Asian team in the top two international basketball tournaments.

    Aside from the bronze medal at the World Championships and the fifth-place Olympic finish, the Philippines has won five FIBA Asian Championships for Men, four Asian Games Men's Basketball gold medals and a consistent winner at the Southeast Asian Games and at the Southeast Asia Basketball Association. The country has also participated in four FIBA World Championships and seven Olympic Basketball Tournaments.

    In the 1950s-1960s, the Philippines was among the best in the world, producing world-class players like Carlos Loyzaga, Mariano Tolentino and Edgardo Ocampo. Loyzaga was even a part of the 1954 FIBA World Championship Mythical Team selection, where the Philippines won the Bronze medal.

    The country lost its Asian basketball supremacy, when Asia's first and the world's second professional basketball league, the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), was founded on April 1975. Slowly, the country lost its best players to the league with FIBA restrictions of professional players in the national teams.

    Thumbs up Famous players

    Famous players

    Johnny Abarrientos - Philippine basketball's and Asia's best point guard in the 1990's. Abarrientos played for the Philippines in the 1991 Southeast Asian Games and the Asian Games. He was later selected to play for the Philippine Centennial Team to represent the country in the 1998 Asian Games and the 21st William Jones Cup championship. Abarrientos was named Most Valuable Player in an exhibition game against the FIBA Asia All-Star team led by his fellow countryman, Rommel Adducul.

    Allan Caidic - Asia's most feared three-point shooter and arguably one of the greatest players ever to play for the Philippines internationally. He is a four-time veteran of the Asian Games (1986, 1990, 1994, 1998) and a two-time William Jones Cup champion (1985, 1998). Early in his career, Caidic played a major role for the Philippines in capturing the 1985 South East Asian Games and the 1985-1986 FIBA Asia Championship. In 1994, he was the Asian Games basketball tournament's leading scorer and was named to the All-tournament mythical five selection. In 1998, he represented the country for the final time with the celebrated Philippine Centennial Team.

    Robert Jaworski - the world's oldest professional basketball player and arguably the Philippines' most popular player of the professional era. He represented the country in numerous international tournaments and one of the last Filipino basketball players to play in the World Championship and in the Olympic Games.

    Samboy Lim - one of the best players ever to play for the Philippines. A prolific scorer, he represented the Philippines in the 1982 Asian Youth Championship and in the 1985-1986 FIBA Asia Championship. He was later named in the 1990 Asian Games mythical five selection.

    Carlos Loyzaga - the greatest international Filipino basketball player in the history. He led the Philippines to four consecutive Asian Games gold medals and three Asian championship titles. His biggest achievement was leading the country to a third place finish and the bronze medal in the 1954 FIBA World Championship, the best finish by an Asian country in the World Championships. He was named later in the all-tournament mythical five selection after finishing third leading scorer of the tournament.

    Ambrosio Padilla - one of the greatest players of the pre-war era. He played for the Philippines in the Far Eastern Games before leading the country to a fifth place finish in the 1936 Olympic Games, the best finish by an Asian country in the Olympic basketball tournament.

    Luis "Lou" Salvador - one of the most prolific Filipino scorer in history. Salvador played for the Philippines in several Far Eastern Games tournaments but in 1923, Salvador set an all-time record for the most points scored by a Filipino in a single international game. He scored 116 points against China to lead the country to the gold medal.

    Wink Final Statement:

    I respect everbody's opinion regarding basketball and your belief in your own NT. I know these are past achievements of philippine NT, but achievements are achievements. And no other team in Asia has ever achieved what the Philippine NT has achieved in International Basketball Competitions.

    So to all who will participate in the coming FIBA Asian Championship, watch out. It's not a joke!!!

    no offense but come on man. letS concentrate on the here and now. we have bragged about our history several times. We WERE the best in asia, but as of now we arent, obviously its china. i know that our NT's past achievements are the best in asia and that some achievements are achievements that other asian nt's are yet to reach but we really should consider the level of competition that we are in right now. other national teams are very competitive and could claim that they are best in asia.

    ei Phantim3dx, I may be somewhat of a realist, but i still have high hopes for my rp team. We may score an upset and win the asian championship, go to the olympics and be placed somewhere at the bottom 5. hopefully not last place. but still its a good start.

    anyways im going to the US around august... maybe we could drink san miguel beer when your there! haha "for me, its the best beer!"

    I want to change the question:

    the question is: which Asian country will qualify in the coming 2008 Beijing
    Olympics?

    Make your decision and why you choose this team ??

    Default too much bragging

    why there's so much bragging abt the phil team?past achievement is only a history now...what's impt is the future...i think china has a great future in terms of basketball,in fact, all of the featured sports played internationally.
    they have all the right to brag!!! they had proven their skills and talent at all sports level...Phil team? very few!!! boxing,billiards,bowling,basketball...we love all B..sports but we bragged too much already.let's just be humble in spirit...
    i just came to china for a tour 2 days ago...and had the chance to passed by olympic stadium..and u will be wowed if u see that...that's so big and beautiful,designed like a birds nest... i feel envy,with their facilities...our govt can't even make stadium like that and i feel so upset...
