Hamed Haddadi Can Carry Iran to World Cup: FIBA
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Hamed Haddadi can still carry Iran basketball national team to the FIBA World Cup, fiba.basketball wrote.
It was clear that Iran was a much different team with Haddadi patrolling the paint.
He recorded a whale of a game against Kazakhstan, putting up 20 points and 20 rebounds, and stamped his class against Syria as well, tossing in 15 points and hauling down 9 boards.
Needless to say, Haddadi's performance in the second window was a stern reminder to the rest of Asia of how dominant he once was and can still be.
It's crystal clear that even at 32 years old, the 7ft 2in (2.18m) player can still carry Team Melli to a World Cup, and it will be interesting to see how well he does in the third window against Qatar and Kazakhstan.
