Monday, May 16, 2011, Kuala Lumpur – The incarnation of Malaysia National Team – Westports KL Dragons are mentally well prepared to face an uphill challenge in the 22nd FIBA Asia Champions Cup this 28th May – 5th June 2011.

KL Dragons Stepping Up for The Challenge

Dragons’ team manager Mr. Wee Cheong Phor is quite happy with the efforts of players during their training sessions, especially some veteran players who are making their return to the national team.

 “Ban & Seelan are committed and join in with very positive attitude,” Wee who was  referring to Ooi Ban Sin, one of the best point guards in Malaysia, and K.Satyaseelan, ex-national team captain with terrifying long range shooting skills.

 “They come with their hearts, Seelan even underwent personal workout to stay in shape before the call up by national team. After joining the centralize training, he is willing to do extra shooting & drilling on his own,” Wee said, “hopefully they will trigger more players to respond to the national team’s call up. It’s not often to have the chance to represent your country.”

 Another veteran who is consistently joining national team’s training, John Ng apparently wants more from himself and the team.

 “Overall as a team, we are still working on regaining our peak and chemistry,” the soon-to-be 30 years old veteran added, “We have experienced players but physically we still need to be more prepared.”

 With some of the powerhouses across Asia like Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iran & Philippine in the same group, John is somehow optimistic for his team on the trip to Manila which expected to be tough.

 “This (FIBA Asia Champions Cup) is a great exposure for us. It’s always good to have the opportunity to play against opponents with higher level instead of only training within ourselves. That doesn’t work for our improvement.” John added, “with some of the best squads around Asia eyeing for the championship of this tournament, we are going to gain much more valuable experiences to add into our arsenal.”  

 The Dragons will be reinforced by 2 of ABL most prolific scorers, Nakiea Miller and Marcus Morrison. Besides being labeled as “temperamental”, Marcus Morrison is a decent player to team up with.


 “He has very good attitude during training, a well mannered gentleman,” Wee is not holding back his appreciation towards Morrison, “he is a team player and is coachable. He responds to every requirement from the coach.”

 

“He is a very good player, and very well-prepared,” from a player’s perspective, John agrees with Wee, “we have no problem teaming up. I can foresee his contributions during the Champions Cup.” 

Meanwhile, another import Nakiea Miller doesn’t seem very good as he was injured and being absent from training quite a while. “We might consider to make a sub if Nakiea still unable to show up for the next 4-5 days,” according to Wee. Nakiea Miller is plagued by a toe injury and had to undergo an X-Ray examination.
