Think about the millions we wasted on basketball stars many of whom were foreigners who would pocket 300k then flee in the middle of the season....

and most of that money was from politicians (yaane from us)

We never had professional sports.
Just football and basketball though we still sucked and we cannot even beat team Jordan.
Maybe this will be an opportunity to start from scratch and spend only on the youth.
 
We had the basket ball team from La Sagesse/ Hekmet. But when we won the matches in early 2000 Hariri father because very annoyed and tried trick to cancel matches make problems etc. He destroyed the game, never again we came back

I would agree with this, even our basketball "achievements" were due to naturalized players or Lebanese coming from US or Canada.
I think it will benefit to start from scratch.
