Basketball at the 2006 Asian Games
Basketballat the 2006 Asian Gameswas the second early start among the sports in the games. It was played from November 23to December 15, 2006.
In this competition, 20 teams participated in the men's competition and 8 teams played in the women's tournament.
Philippines national basketball team, winners of four gold medals in previous Games, did not participate in the basketball competition due to their suspension by the International Basketball Federation(FIBA). The political interference and conflict between the Basketball Association of the Philippines(BAP) and Philippine Olympic Committee(POC) was the cause of the suspension. [ [http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=sports6_oct16_2006 The politicization of Philippine basketball] ] FIBA will only agree to lift the suspension if the two organisations agree to work together. [ [http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=sports03_aug30_2006 Fiba defers lifting of RP ban] ] While the suspension remains, the team is not allowed to participate in any FIBA-sanctioned events.
The events were held at the Basketball Indoor Hall.
