There is great enthusiasm regarding the news that Afghanistan will take part in the Asian Games in Doha ( ) and that there may be actually an Afghani National Basketball Team taking part as well. The official Afghani basketball authority is the Afghani National Amateur Basketball Federation (ANABF) headed by Eng. Nazir Ahmad Shah Wardak.


AABF history and aims:

One of the expatraite basketball organizations that has gone into considerable length in helping move forward the project of contributing to a possible national team and arranging for players in the Afghani-American basketball leagues / teams for a chance to play in the national side is the recently-established Afghan American Basketball Foundation (AABF) run by Naser Shahalemi. AABF is a non-profit organization that was formed in the spring of 2003 and it wants to capitalize on the growth of Afghan American Basketball scene in America in a consistent and pragmatic way. Shahalemi says there are quite a few basketball teams (20-25 teams for sure) who play in over 5 tournaments throughout the year and a wealth of players to rely on in various positions. AABF says relations have been established between the said organization and the Olympic Committee of Afghanistan to assist in any way possible the efforts of the National Basketball Team of Afghanistan. The Afghan National Amateur Basketball Federation of Afghanistan (ANABF) run by Eng. Nazir Ahmad Shah Wardak has also expressed interest (AABF has produced an accreditation from the ANABF) such that Naser Shahalemi can make the necessary presentations regarding American-based players.


Biography of AABF President Naser Shahalemi: 

Naser Shahalemi was born in 1977 in Kabul, Afghanistan. His family fled the country when he was just 2. Naser formed a 3 on 3 team with his close associate Hafiz Ebady, a current committee member of and in Spring 2001 took part in the first ever official Afghan American baske
