The FIBA Asia Championship for Men, formerly known as the Asian Basketball Confederation Championship, is a tournament which takes place every two years between the national teams of the continent. This is the Asian qualifying tournament for the FIBA World Championship and the Olympic basketball tournament.

The Asian Basketball Confederation Championship was inaugurated in Manila in 1960. Then the Asian Championships were held to find Asia's best team and for qualification to 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.

Since then, China has dominated the Championship with only years when they did not win. In 1986 the Philippines won, in 2007the Chinese lost to South Korean Nationals with their "B team" because they had already qualified for the Olympics by virtue of their hosting. In 2009 Iran defeated a full-strength Chinese team in Tianjin to become the first team since the Chinese to successfully defend the Championship.
