    Cool Players to Watch at Asian Championship

    Arab players and East Asian players..who do you think are the players to watch out and look-out for individually among others?

    Lebanon NT, Syria NT, Jordan NT, Qatar NT, Iran NT, Taiwan NT, Japan NT, China NT, Kazakhstan NT, Philippine NT and etc.




    Kindly post your bets, whoever they are.. let us know..
    add some visuals too.. so we would know what they look like coz arab names as well as chinese/korean names are too similiar with each other, it's always confusing.

    It's ironic to see limited efforts from players with maximum salary.
    I wish they would apply "sabermetrics" in those financially challenged PBA teams to acquire players who are value for their money.

    As jordanian i think Rashiem wright and Sam daghlas
    Rashiem is a combo Guard and a super scorer
    Sam is a fantastic PG...those will be the main force for the jordanian squad.

    the Jordan NT relies on its backcourt? how about the big men?

    for jordan i believe there is also 6'9" Ayman dies#15 and 7 foot dashmal maitah shoetz.. also 6'3" enver soobzokov #9 who i believe is a shooter.

    for korea, theres the kims...kim min soo who is 6'7" and is half korean half something else. he is very athletic. also there is 6'9 Kim joo sung, who is a National team veteran for korea. and theres Kim seung hyun, their star PG i think he is 5'9" it would be nice to see him go up against alapag.

    for lebanon of course aside from veterans vogel and fadi, there is the young Mazen Menmineh who is a 6'4" sg/sf. also main pg fahed, 6'9" brian beshara who could play the sf position.

    for syria i believe its only 6'2" Maadanli who we should watch out. he averaged 34ppg for syria during the asian games.

    for Iran theres 6'6" Samad Nikkkah and 6'7" aidin Nekah. also theres is 7'1" Hamed Hadadi who is a good defender and could score. also 6'7" pooya tadjik who used to lead the Iranian NT.

    for qatar, as far as i know there is veteran 6'8" yaseen Ismail (he looks more like 6'7) who is very athletic. also there is 6'2"doud mousa doud who is their PG and 6'2" saad Abdulraman ali who is their top scorer.

    for taiwan i believe there is 6'7/6'8 Tien Lei who is their mvp last year, high flying 6'5" chen hsin an, athletic center 6'8" tsun wen din (looks more like 6'9-6'10), shooter and current mvp 6'4" Lin chijay, 6'9 Wu dai hao who played college in BYU.

    for japan, aside from 6'4" ryota and 5'11 irigashi there is also veteran 6'3" takehiko orimo who is a very good shooter. 6'4" tomoo amino who is also a good shooter. and also the 6'9" takeuchi twins.

    as far as kazakhastan is concerned i only know 6'10 anton ponomorev.

    for the Philippine team... no comment.. hehe

    in my opinion, korea and japan is packed with shooters so we should watch out for them too.

    arab teams on the otherhand appears to have more muscle inside and will play really physical.

    Danny Seigle (if he recover from his injury) and Mark Caguioa of the Philippines...

    Of course, Yao Ming of China...

    The South Korean shooters!... if they're still there!

    and Lebanon!

    "as far as kazakhastan is concerned i only know 6'10 anton ponomorev."

    this guy has torched a lot of the opposing teams, did he ever play in Europe or somewhere else?

    plays the PF/C position but really skinny to bang inside, he is more of an oversized sf because he is too fast and agile; not really a type of person who oves bodies inside. unconventional PF, doesn't like to post but faces the basket instead fro the shots or driving the lanes.

    This is what NBADRAFTNET had to say about the guy, which i just re-worded above.

    "#71 Anton Ponomarev, Kazakhstan, SF/PF, 6'10''
    Handles the ball really well for his height, and can also shoot the 3's. Shoots well at close range too. However is a little too skinny. Very fast, plays like a SF. He doesn't post up but likes to face the basket, which can be dangerous, at; take the jumper or drive in and make the lumbering bigs foul him, pick your poison. He handles the ball as well as any guard, and has good instincts. Helps the weak side on defense and does it very well. Very athletic and agile, it would be good to model his game after Antwan Jamison. If he plays many minutes he will definitely become a very good tall SF."

    whether its trashing or not, it would still be an interesting game for me, and it will be an eye-opener for those who think that RP NT is still an Asian Basketball Powerhouse. After seeing a lopsided game in favor of China NT, I think those bragsters will think again and weigh their options.

    anyway, the good thing is, yao ming, yi jian lian and wang zhi zhi will not be present in the Tokushima joust, a bonus for every team in the bracket A who's expecting for an early collision course with the Chinese.

    if hes their best player he doesnt look too intimidating....btw China A has a very weak bench they have just their top 7 players who are good cuz in China and Lebanon games when both teams empty their benches the last few minutes Lebanon,s bench always outplay them and in the final of the 2005 asian championship China played just 6 players all game and their top 4 players played 40 minutes so its not an accomplishment that China B team would win China A,s reserves and seeing that they beat them by just 3 or 5pts i can see Iran,Jordan and Philippines compete and even beat them even though Philippines would have this height disadvantage they have to try controlling it for these 3 games......these are all tall teams with them in the group............philippines are more talented than the other teams but TOO short...if they naturalize a center i think they can top this group,if they stay the way they do they are too short to make up for it in speed and hardwork.......
