Dragan Raca
I was talking the other night with the Head Coach of Guangzhou Free Man of the Chinese NBL League, Raca Dragan who spent most of his coaching career in Europe and mostly in Greece, Cyprus and Lebanon and lectured in many regions and many camps/clinics from USA to China, (he is working currently and for the last two years in the Chinese league), and I asked him to tell me his opinion and his feelings in regards to the Chinese league and Chinese level of Basketball in all aspects, organization, wealth, talent, training, space to work, communication etc. The guy is simply thrilled with what he is currently viewing in more or less all the pre-mentioned levels, Raca found his Basketball Ithaca in China in a never expected result.

He mentioned to me that in terms of organization and Basketball Technology there is no-where else in the globe to compare the tools they are using in China (and his team), other than NBA, and the Chinese level is really getting very close to the specific level. A sport, which seriously started in the land of the Middle Kingdom only some years ago, (less than 10), is now all the way to the top level in the most of its key-elements, as the experienced shared by Coach Raca is quite interesting.

According to Coach Raca, the tools which he is using for his training and the organization behind them is simply amazing, currently he and his team are on a training level (he is preparing his team for the season to come) and they are doing their preparation in a Basketball center which reminds a lot a 5 star hotel at any given place in Europe! This Basketball center contains 12 full armed basketball courts in full technology, boards, stat-tables, all the necessary machinery and personnel to assist the teams which are currently prepared in the specific area.

In the town of Chengdu the capital of Sichuan province in Southwest China one of the most important economic, transportation, and communication centers in Western China and more specifically in the Basketball center Sighuan Province is the Basketball Paradise for any Coach. Coach Raca told me that even though he traveled nearly all over the world and he has worked in many regions he never saw something like that. Imagine a huge covered camp consist of 12 (twelve) Basketball courts of the last technology (together with their fully equipped gyms) with everything that a coach, trainer and management team needs for their basketball team.

According to Coach Raca, the president Mr. Zhou Shiqiang is the inventor and owner of the specific Basketball Paradise which currently hosts 10 different teams which are preparing on a fast mode as the Chinese NBL League starts officially at the end of April. With the use of the specific Basketball center, these teams do not need to go anywhere else to get prepared, as all the trainings, the friendly preparation games, the necessary exercises and all the rest ingredients of the modern basketball takes place in this Basketball Paradise.

The Sighuan Province Basketball center is launched officially for non Chinese teams later this season as it will be a perfect training and preparation center for any European and/or American team which really wants to live a basketball myth, according to Coach Raca this center is probably unique in the Globe and the services offered to any team are so innovative as the center itself has the tools and capabilities to make the job of both the Coaching team and the players even easier and much better as the conditions in all the necessary terms are absolutely professional and the perfection is really very close at these standards.

As an ending note, Coach Raca warn me that very soon China will enter for good in the Global Basketball Map as at this stage all the grass root job took place and very soon the Chinese Basketball empire will rice.

A unique interview with Coach Raca was taken place on the 8th of April, 2012 especially for Eurobasket.com
