Chantelle Anderson New Lebanon National Team Player

Its not unusual these days to see more and more American basketball players get naturalization in the other countries to participate in international championship. The biggest news from 2008 was Becky Hammon's participation with Russias Womens National Team. I think it was more hyped because of Russia's history with the USA in the past. Now in 2009, WNBA player Chantelle Anderson has taken a similar part by participating and naturalizing in Lebanon. This is very uncommon for countries in Asia but Anderson will be one of the first and sure more the follow.

The FIBA Asia Basketball Championships have started (September 17-24), as well as the FIBA Americas Championship (September 23-27)
