The 2008 All-Asian Team & Yearly Awards
on those who were selected to the All-Asian Team. It was very difficult to pick the team, because of all the talented
players in the country. So don't be upset if you are not on the team. So keep hoopin maybe next year you will be on the
Also there is no real close to the asian basketball season, but the year is almost over according to this
site. With the Asianballers.net National Championships approaching in New York City, we will wrap this year up with some end
of the year awards. Its been another exciting year of asian basketball and it seems that asian basketball is growing even
bigger than ever.
With more leagues popping up around the nation and more players and teams traveling the
country, asian basketball is moving forward. We want to thank all the tournament coordinators around the country for their
hard work and dedication. If you have ever hosted a tournament, you know its a lot of work and very little financial benefit.
So we want to acknowledge those to put the time to do so. We also would like to thank all the coaches, team captains, team
organizers, and sponsors for their efforts to bring teams to compete accross the country. It takes money and someone to put
it all together, so we are appreciative of all those who deal with players on an everyday or every week basis. It can get
stressful keeping a team together. So here's a pat on the back from us. And to all the asian ballers who visit this site
and continue to support asian tournaments. Thank you and please keep supporting your local asian tournament and tournaments
around the country. With out the asian ballers there is no asian basketball. Keep working on your game, and we will keep working
hard to bring asian basketball to the next level!

Center - Robert Reyes (Team Jacksonville, Florida)
Team of the Year
- Toronto 25 for Life
This team has come out of nowhere and has dominated the scene whereever they go. They
have set a record with 5 tournament championships this year! We look for more great things from this team in the future. Great
Most Dissapointing Team - Team Ohio
From being ranked in the top 5 a couple of years
ago, to winning nothing this year. Team Ohio is fading into the sunset. What is going on with this team? Can they redeem themselves
Most Consistent Team - Chosen Few
This dominating Hawaii team continues to be a powerhouse
year after year, because of Mr. John Lane. Can they keep up their dominance and consistency in 2009? Well as long as John
is around they should.
Rookie Team of the Year - Toronto 25 for Life
They are the team of the
year. They just showed up on our radar. So it was an easy choice.
Best Tournament of the Year - Windy City Tournament
This suburban Chicago tournament was very well ran, good competition, great facility, and great organization. We look
forward to next years. Congrats Charles Patamat. We recommend your tournament to anyone.
Worst Tournament of
the Year - UNC Baby Blue
We wil continue to rag on this tournament until they stop refusing to not get better.
Amateur refs that don't care about the game. Having players and fans be score keepers. Allowing 1,2,3 non-asians on some
teams. And the very biased homecooking for the local teams. We hate to keep reminding this tournament of this every year.
But they never get the message. There is such a great tradition for this region. It sad that no one ever tries to improve
