For the love of basketball I want to see our country competing in Olympics against biggest teams in Euro League and NBA, is that possible? Yes, if we toughen our players and practice perfect shooting from mid-range to downtown! 😀

    Congratulations! This is a classic “never say die” attitude. Once far from reach, when Lebanon beat us badly, yet that attitude brought you where you belong. Get over superstar egoistic character and solidify your teamwork. I could smell another bang at the FIBA Asia Cup. The good Lord shall keep you both spiritually and physically healthy.
