Description
Zaid Abbas does a lot of things on the basketball court extremely well.

He is, without a doubt, one of the best all-round players ever to wear a Jordan uniform. The athletic, 2.03m small forward is a crowd pleaser in large part because he plays the game above the rim.

Each of the past three summers, Abbas has made his mark with the national side.

At the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship in China, when Jordan claimed a bronze medal, Abbas averaged13.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, and his defense was stellar. He ranked ninth overall in steals in that competition after coming up with an average of 1.8 per game and his presence always forced opponents out of their comfort zone.

After leading Jordan in scoring at 15.2 points per game at the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey, Abbas returned to Asia and nearly helped his national team upset hosts China in a fight for the automatic qualification for the London Games.

In that gold-medal game of the FIBA Asia Championship in Wuhan, the Palestinian-born Abbas poured in 13 points, corralled 10 rebounds and swatted two shots but Jordan fell, 70-69, when they missed a couple of shots in the waning seconds.

That Jordan made it that far came as a surprise to a lot of people because to get there, they had to knock off two-time defending champions Iran in the Quarter-Finals.

Jordan weren't playing well ahead of the Iranian game. The players seemed to be out of rhythm, something that wasn't surprising considering there had been no proper Jordanian league in 2010-11. Abbas never doubted that his team would rise to the occasion against Iran, though.

"The advantage is we know each other very well, coming from WABA," Abbas said. 

The team had begun to jell and indeed, surprised Iran, 88-84.

Abbas had his usually solid game, making four of six shots from the floor, including his only attempt from long range, and converting his lone free-throw attempt.

He finished with seven rebounds, a steal and a block.

“We improved a lot from 2009 to 2011,” Abbas said.

If Abbas, who turned 28 in November, continues to raise the level of his performances, expect Jordan’s to remain on the up as well.
