Asian Games Coaching Team Refuses to Participate in Cross-League Competition
By Lin Yuefu, Comprehensive Reporter
The highly anticipated cross-league basketball invitational tournament took place at the Heping Basketball Arena on Saturday, but to the disappointment of many, the Asian Games coaching team declined to participate. The event had also made arrangements for the Hangzhou Asian Games training team to join in the competition. In response, the Taipei Professional Football Players Association issued an official statement on behalf of the players, emphasizing the importance of maintaining their training schedule and not cooperating with any competitions.
The Professional Basketball Association expressed their dissatisfaction with the Basketball Association’s invitation to the players of the Asian Games training team. They pointed out that a complete itinerary and plan were not provided, and that a schedule of commercial events was only added after the start of the training camp. It is difficult to comprehend the strategic approach of “step by step improvement of physical fitness and competitive intensity” when considering the general opponents’ training schedules and arrangements.
This is not the first time that the players’ concerns have been overlooked by the Basketball Association. Despite repeated requests for “advance communication,” the association continues to unilaterally require players to cooperate with commercial events under the name of the national team. This not only puts players’ careers at risk, but also disregards the spirit that Asian Games team training resources should be used judiciously, which is truly distressing.
Furthermore, the logistical care provided by the Basketball Association has not shown any signs of improvement. On July 9, the Professional Basketball Association released a statement urging the relevant authorities and the Basketball Association to pay attention to “logistics specifications and insurance packages.” Unfortunately, such issues have been frequently reported, including with the Olympic qualifying team and the men’s and women’s teams participating in the Asian Games.
The lack of long-term goals and plans from the Basketball Association may not come as a surprise in the current development of the domestic basketball scene. However, it is disappointing to see that even the experienced training and coaching staff rely solely on the independent support of team members.
Recent emphasis on “appearance fees” by the Basketball Association and the Professional Basketball Association’s response regarding compliance with legal regulations shows a potential opportunity for understanding and communication between the two organizations. It is imperative that the Basketball Association becomes transparent and fosters mutual trust through negotiations.
To avoid repeating such turmoil, the NBA has proposed the establishment of practical procedures and participation agreements for inviting players to international competitions. This would ensure fair event distribution, eliminate information inequities, and create conditions for active player participation, ultimately modernizing and institutionalizing the national team.
“Transparency of information and open communication” has been a guiding principle for the Professional Basketball Association since their appeal for the protection of international competition rights in 2013. They remain committed to moving forward accordingly. While the players do not reject the opportunity to compete for national honors, they encourage reflection on why the Taiwan basketball system and plans have fallen short, and how they can be improved. Instead of focusing solely on political involvement, ceremonies, and monetary incentives, it is crucial to prioritize fundamental projects that significantly support athletes’ careers. The time for change is now.

Especially after the Japan Invitational Tournament and the Jones Cup, the Basketball Association once again ignored the repeated statements of the players that there should be “advance communication” and that players are unilaterally required to cooperate with the association in holding commercial events in the name the national team. This move not only puts players’ careers at unnecessary risk, but also ignores the spirit that Asian Games team training resources are supported by the country and should be used judiciously, which is really helpless and distressed.
The problem of logistical care has not been improved. The Professional Basketball Association issued a statement on July 9, expressing the hope that the relevant competent authorities and the Basketball Association will pay attention to “logistics specifications and insurance packages ” Unfortunately, this includes the Olympic qualifying Team, Taiwan Including the white men’s and women’s teams and the men’s and women’s teams of the Asian Games, the situation is often reported.
Judging from the current development of the domestic basketball world, it is not surprising that the Basketball Association is unable to formulate long-term goals and plans, but it is inevitable that it will be surprised that even the training and coaching work who should have sufficient experience. rely on the independent support of team members.
The Basketball Association recently highlighted the “appearance fee players are most concerned about”, and the Professional Basketball Association emphasized that the appearance fee system is a matter of compliance with the association’s legal compliance in the National Sports Act , which broadly incorporates the views of athletes, including the professional baseball union. The Professional Basketball Association develops on the basis of building the Professional Baseball Association and inherits the understanding and communication experience of individual associations. It naturally understands that the Basketball Association could have administrative and financial difficulties. We can only hope that the Society will be ready to start transparently. and mutual trust negotiations.
In order to avoid a repeat of the bad drama, the NBA has asked the Basketball Association to respond positively to the proposal to “establish a “Practical Procedure for Inviting Players to Participate in International Competitions” and a “Template for Participation Agreements”, discuss and implement the distribution of events, and eliminate information inequities, remove communication barriers and create conditions for active participation of players, allowing the national team to become institutionalized and modernized.
“Transparency of information and open communication” are the principles that the Professional Basketball Association has remained unchanged since it appealed for the protection of international competition rights in 2013, and the Professional Basketball Association will move forward accordingly . The players do not refuse the opportunity to fight for honors on behalf of the country, but they hope that before being labeled as “disregarding honor and seeking personal gain”, we can reflect on “why Taiwan basketball is not satisfied do his due diligence in terms of systems and plans” and prepare”? Before arranging for political leaders from all parties to initiate, award prizes, banquets and pay additional money, are there more “fundamental projects that can provide significant support to the careers of athletes” the should they be initiated? And if change should not happen now, then when?
