    well, lets not feast on Lebanon's defeat.. shall we.. we have nothing to do with it..
    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.

    iran was the batter team throughtout the tourmant and deserve to be champions , we depend on fadi too much on the offense also fahed was horriable on D and we still haven't found a replacement for paul khoury our Defanse ancher in the last tourment .
    now that our olympic chance is very little i still belevie in our team and can make an upset against the south american and euro , anyway if we were to be champs of asia i would rather be against a real china team .

    Finally, a lebanese guy who accepts that his team rely too much on fahdi for points, unlike others who continue to claim that there are other scorers on the team, even when all the statistics say otherwise. I know how you feel bro. we felt the same here when our team got eliminated early. defense is good, but you need to work on your offense. khatib won't be as good as he is right now forever. how old is he anyway? if he's 29, I suspect only about 3 years, maximum 4, that he can keep this up. being a guard, he relies too much on his quickness outside shot. 2 years from now, maybe vogel retires. you need to rebuild quickly, or jordan and qatar will overtake you.

    man, twas the same here when RP got eliminated right in the first round. what's funny is, most people here will not have felt as bad if we got eliminated in the quarterfinals or even in the finals. 9th place here was unthinkable.

    although some here will say that we even placed 13th in another ABC, those teams were made up mostly of collegiate players or proffesionals who got cut from the pro league, not the top players in the country. most people here just shrugged their shoulders on those losses.

    anyway, just don't think about it too much. that's how we deal with these kind of things here.

Our future in basketball is bright while Lebanon's NT is on its twilight.
    Ignorance at it best!!!!

    fadi is only 30 years old. Vogel is a neutralized player and can be changed with few papers signed a bag full of dollars.

    Several of the current Lebanese players are in their mid-twenities like Ali mahmoud, jean abdul nour.
    Many young and coming players on serval postions like Rodrigue Akil and Mohammad hamdar....

    Do i need to talk abt the NCAA players? like Bassel Bawji. tarek ammoury...

    and abt the pre-olympics players, it was the worst we could ever play due to many many reasons... but wait is the phillipines team better? no way in hell, we lost in a finals game in fiba asia due to a superior effort by kamrani and ehhaddi .. while u guys lost in the first round

    get ur facts first amigo

    I can assure that Lebanon will be a power in Asia in many years to come with or without Khatib your basketball program seems to be very good and proven before unlike us... it is only starting

    Replying To Dgenx,Charbel Sakr said it really well and no need to add more.
    But just one thing about that Lebanon is in downhill,i really dont understand you guys,we lost the final against Iran but still we are second right ? does a loss by 3 or 4 pts make us loosers ? or weak ?
    We lost that game fine congrats for iran they deserve it and still i have the feelings that we can beat them even thought they r having a good performances lately....Good luck for Rp since u really love basketball and this is enough for you to have hopes about a birght future.

    let close this thread for those pinoys who are still bitter over the jones cup incident or even with the 2007 tokushima wars.

    to my lebanese brothers, lets keep the friendship between our countries even if there are still immature filipino posters here who are still cant get over.
