The 2015 FIBA Asia Championship for Men was the 28th continental basketball championship in Asia. The tournament was organised by FIBA Asia.

At the FIBA Asia Congress held in Doha, Qatar, the Central Board awarded the hosting rights to China.[2] On 4 December 2014, the Chinese Basketball Association acquired approval from FIBA Asia to hold the men's championship at Changsha, Hunan, with the women's championship to be held at Wuhan, Hubei.[3]

As the winner of the tournament, China qualified for the basketball tournament on the 2016 Summer Olympics, while the Philippines, Iran, and Japan will participate at the 2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Men, as stated by FIBA and the IOC in qualification quota.[4]

The 2015 edition was the last FIBA Asia Championship, as starting in 2017; it will be rebranded as the FIBA Asia Cup and will now feature teams from FIBA Oceania.

Qualification[edit]

According to the FIBA Asia rules, the host nation China and 2014 FIBA Asia Cup champions Iran automatically qualified. East Asia, West Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Persian Gulf each had two berths while Central Asia and South Asia each had one slot allotted. The other four places are allocated to the zones according to performance in the 2014 FIBA Asia Cup. Therefore, with Chinese Taipei, Philippines, Jordan, and Japan finishing in the top four in that tournament other than Iran and China which were both direct qualifiers, East Asia gained another two berths while the Southeast Asia and West Asia gained an additional slot each.

Controversies[edit]

Rescheduling of Semifinals[edit]

There was suspicion and outrage when the organizers decided to move the schedule of the semifinals game between Philippines and Japan from its original schedule of 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Many fans believe that this move was a way for the Chinese to procure undue advantage come the gold medal match.[9][10]

Finals Pregame[edit]

A few hours before the championship match, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas President Manuel V. Pangilinan accused the host country of pulling off shenanigans. He ranted on his Twitter account that electric bus that was to bring the Philippine squad to the game venue was delayed because it failed to charge, which will give them less time to warm up.[11] He also claimed that not a single ticket was allocated to the SBP by the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), which left members of the Philippine squad coaching staff as well as the group of SBP officials without tickets hours prior to the game. SBP officials claimed it is standard practice for local organizers to allocate tickets for teams playing in the championship.[12] He also cited that the Chinese players stayed at a different hotel from the players from the other nations, which violates the FIBA rules.[13] It was also reported that when the Philippine squad finally arrived at the arena, the goal's net where they were shooting was suddenly removed for repair, which gave them even less time to warm up after the delay from the electric bus incident.[14][15]

Officiating[edit]

The officiating of the referees were also held in question by fans and various teams playing against China, especially the games with Jordan, South Korea, Iran and the Philippines.[16][17][9]

Behavioural issues[edit]

There was wide criticism of the rude behavior of the Chinese fans towards visiting teams, in which fans were shouting threats, doing the dirty finger and throwing bottles and paper at the opposing team benches. There were incidents in which foreign fans in the venue were heckled and insulted by Chinese fans while the Chinese Police just stood by.[18] One particular moment is when Calvin Abueva irritated Chinese supporters after he accidentally bumped Guo Ailun with his shoulder while returning to the bench following his fifth and final personal foul. It was also reported that a Filipino cameraman got involved, too, in a verbal exchange started by a Chinese cameraman.[19] Filipino veteran sportswriter Quinito Henson added that a Chinese photographer had to be restrained from scuffling with a Filipino lensman for shielding Abueva from crowd abuse.[20]

Referees[edit]

The following referees were selected for the tournament.[21]
