    We are in group with Bahrain, India and Iraq. I would play this games without naturalized player. Save money.

    Lebanon too many underutilized "talent" maximize exposure without naturalized player and develop and after that evaluate and naturalize a quality player to fill the need.. imo for now still a "big" a scoring one who can impose his presence in 2 ways (majok is a weak offensivbe player)
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    How is Ahmad Ibrahim now? Haven't seen him in a while, I am not sure if he was on the 2017 Asia Cup team.

    He is playing for Homentmen in the Lebanese premier pro league averaging impressive stats: https://basketball.asia-basket.com/t...ut/2682?Page=3

    Ibrahim looked very promising some years ago. I even saw him as Fadi El Khatib's heir apparent. Don't know why he has hardly gotten a crack in the Lebanese National team in the recent FIBA games & tournaments.

    BTW, why is it that Lebanese posters no longer post in the Lebanese threads? What happened to those posters?

Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    Unfortunately, our league stopped because we are having a "revolution" and we're having a big crisis. Maybe the league will start again in January.
