  1. Dear Chris, I am living in Taipei and i am an SBL fan so i have first of all to congradulate you for your efforts, writing down and commenting on the SBL results every week. It is a great help to get the information i need in english since i cannot speak/read chinese.
    This championship looks exciting since beyond the best 3 teams (Yulon, Taiwan Beer and Dacin), there are also other teams hard to beat and many games are really exciting. I kind of favor Taiwan Beer mainly due to my admiration for Wu Dai-Hao but Yulon has a very intelligent coach and looks more like a team compared to Taiwan Beer despite the last having in my opinion the most talented players. There is a chemistry problem i feel. Dacin has improved in the defensive side of the game but they are obviously missing a lot Tien-lei. T-Media is a good team but i cannot see them reaching the finals. Anyway, we are on the making of an interesting championship.
    Many thanks again for your efforts and the great information you provide!

  2. Hi Christos,

    Thanks for your comment. It’s a pity that I didn’t have much time, otherwise I would definitely write more on the SBL.

    I agree with your observation that TB has a chemistry problem. They have too any good players and it seemed it’s difficult for them to share a basketball and understand their role on the team, since all of them have been fighting for playing times.

    The current status of Dacin just proves how much Tien means to this team.

  3. Dear Chris, the chemistry problem of TB was first noted by you in a comment you made when TB brought Wu Dai-Hao back to Taiwan. You were right back then, and it takes time to bring all those good players together. But i would like to say that my personal feeling is that had TB had a “better’ coach, things could have been better. I feel in many games the coaching from the bench is not helpful. No disrespect to anyone but this is my personal opinion.
    In the meanwhile, last Sunday, Taipei Times had an interesting article about SBL and the need for the sport to have a regulatory authority (respected by everyone) that sets firmly the rules and observes the behavior of management and players in and out of the basketball court. It amateurish to have still players not getting paid every months but only according to the number of games they play. But this is a big issue that maybe we can discuss in the future. What is for example the vision for the future of Taiwanese basketball and who is responsible for it?
