For the women's tournament, see FIBA Asia Championship for Women.
The FIBA Asia Championship for Men (formerly Asian Basketball Confederation Championship) is a tournament which takes place every two years between teams of the continent. This is the Asian qualifying tournament for the FIBA World Championship and the Olympic basketball tournament. The tournament is also known as the Asian Championships

History

The Asian Basketball Confederation Championship was inaugurated in Manila on 1960. The championship was held to find Asia's best team and for qualification for the World Championship and the Olympics. On the next four tournaments, the Philippines won 3 with the Japanese beating the Filipinos on 1965. Korea, Japan and the Philippines split the next 3 championships until China debuted on 1975 at Bangkok with the championship, where they've dominated ever since.

There were only four instances where China didn't win the championship since then: at 1986 when the Philippines won with the presence of 2 naturalized Americans, at 1997, when the Chinese complained at Riyadh's climate, at 2007, when the Chinese sent their "B team" since they've already qualified for the Olympics by virtue of their hosting, and at 2009 when Iran defeated a full-strength Chinese team in Tianjinmarker to become the first team since the Chinese to successfully defend the championship

Korea had been the perennial runner-ups, with Japan and DPR Korea sneaking in. The Philippines had become weaker due to its players being professionals (therefore ineligible for FIBA participation until 1989), and due to the politicization of basketball in that country. By the 21st century, the tournament has since been renamed into the FIBA Asia Championship. During the 2007 Championship, West Asian teams were able to compete with the traditional East Asian powers, as evidenced of an all-West Asian final when Iran defeated Lebanon. It is to be noted that the Chinese sent their "B team" to the Asian Championships (the "A team" was focused on warm-ups for the then up-coming Beijing Olympics to be hosted in China.)
