    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.

    Lebanon is more experienced, but I expect a hell of a fight between Vogel and Japan's new recruit/naturalized Sakuragi (formerly known as Henderson). hope we'll see this game somewhere (Sopcast/ESPN Sports/youtube)

    with the addition of Sakuragi, Japan will be the toughest team in Group B... Lebanon is just overrated for me... but how i wish they'll end up in first place in their group...

    what's actually going for japan:

    homecourt advantage + henderson + WC experience + no scouting report


    although underrated, japan team is really good. remember that its WUG team beat the NT of RP and Jordan!

    well, if japan is indeed a strong team.. you'll meet again in the semis

    if you lose against them in the group stages.. you would lose your psychological edge over them

    japan will be harder to beat in the semis than in the group stage

    This group the winner will be Lebanon because we have a big revenge from asian games and japan choose our group ..a player in the nt i know said we have respect for japan and same time we won't let them "eat our head" a lebanese slang for we wont le them beat us.......lol ... we know japanese team very well sakurai,their big guy Aono,igarachi and henderson....i bet henderson will be a scorer more than a hard working player as most their team is disciplined and hard working....
    Also don't forget uae who won the gulf championship against Qatar and in gulf championship for clubs they lost to Rayyan the last 10 seconds....kuwait are here just to play and they might surprise if u don't respect them...the key for lebanon is 200% respecting the teams and the coach shouldn't do any fatal mistakes....that worries me alot with this coach he's not stable.......
