Lebanon were hopeful of boasting the best possible squad in China, with 6'10" Lebanese-Australian center Julian Khazzouh spearheading their roster.In truth, the team is noticeably talented and not nearly as bad as many think.Having Youngblood is a big plus on both ends and, although it is true that the American will not have much time to practice, he is still capable of giving the team an offensive presence.Charles Tabet will be the starting center after ending a remarkable season with Mouttahed where he also occupied the 5 position. He will have to watch out for early foul trouble, especially when playing against teams with quality centers. This team is not built around a solid center, but in Asia it could be a positive, provided the team clicks and Youngblood manages to be the backbone of the offense.However, expectations shouldn't be high, as the team needs to play without pressure in an attempt to perform better and try and secure a positive result for Lebanon.
