I'm having a discussion with a Chinese Basketball fan over at the Interbasket forums about the Basketball program there in China, and I find it very interesting because of how different the Chinese Basketball program is compared to ours, in terms of structure and development particularly from the High School to College levels.

The discussion It is still ongoing, and am not really sure about the accuracy of the information, but anyway, this is what I have gathered so far:

- One of the main college basketball leagues there have there, is the Chinese University Basketball Association or CUBA

- Huaquiao University is one of the best college basketball teams in the CUBA, winning a couple of championships there the last couple of years. It is also the same team that recently won the AUBC tournament in Cebu.

- The best High School and College players, though, are not in the CUBA. This is because the best players are picked up by CBA ballclubs, who have Youth teams of their own, and where the best young players are picked and pooled in. Age brackets in these Youth ballclub teams are from 14-20 years old. The CBA ballclubs then get their players from the their respective Youth ballclubs. Rarely will players from the collegiate leagues like the CUBA reach the CBA. As per Feifei, only 2 CUBA players reached the CBA from 1998 to 2008

That's the Euro-style development modeled after how European football clubs recruit and develop talent. Players turn professional as early as 16. What we have is the same as in the US.

I agree.

Seems to me the European model is better, seeing as China is virtually unebatable in Asia and European teams finished 1-2 in the last World Championships.

I would say that our current model allows for a more exciting college basketball program. However, their model allows them to maximize their player pool for international competitions.

Nung napunta kami dati sa China nung player pa ako hindi ko mawari kung papano tayo makikipagsabayan. Bandang 1993 ito at talagan naman sa laki at tikas pa lang ng katawan lugi na tayo. Nung bumalik kami sa kagandahang loob ni Sir Bong Tan nitong mga bandang 2004 lalo pang lumaki ang mga manlalaro nila! Papano tayo sasabay sa mga trese o katorse anyos na 6-11 o kaya 7-footer na?

'Yun na lang Wang Zhizhi nung Youth Team pa nung 1995 nasa 6-11 na sa edad na kinse o disi-sais. Siempre iyak mga 6-5 natin gaya nina Adducul at Ildefonso. Sa laki na lang lugi na tayo papano pa kaya sa pagsasanay? Dahil komunista sila sa ayaw mo at sa gusto mo kapag sinabing sa basketball ka talagang sa basketball ka. Ano laban natin sa ganun?

Alam ko na, sabi nga ng nasirang Tembong Melencio: kapag nasahod mo 'yan mas malaki ka na! ;D

It certainly helps that China has a gigantic pool of tall and talented players to choose from. Even if their professional leagues start their own youth team to train, the collegiate leagues will still have players who are competitive enough to play. That cannot really be done here, if it was implemented here, we will see intrams-level players competing in the UAAP and the NCAA.

'Yun na lang Wang Zhizhi nung Youth Team pa nung 1995 nasa 6-11 na sa edad na kinse o disi-sais.

That youth championships were held in Manila.
6'6" shooting forward Li Nan was also part of that Chinese youth team.

While Jordan had 6'8" Al Khaz (spelling?), who still plays for the Jordan National Team
