    Can anyone close to Marcus Douthit tell him to imitate the moves of Hakeem “THE DREAM” Olajuwon? If he can do that, there’s a great chance that we can compete in Spain. And for Japeth Aguilar, he needs to practice dribbling for him to be able to create his moves. He needs to practice the crossover and spin moves at least imitate Kevin Garnet’s moves. He stands at 6’10. KG stands at 6’11. Just 1 inch differential. He also needs to practice his outside shooting. It would be much better if he can copy the moves of Tracy Mcgrady, Kobe Bryant or Leboron James. His defender will go crazy if he can do that. Imitating the moves of Michael Jordan, i think, is too much of him to ask. Now for Junmar Fajardo, he needs to at least imitate the moves of Kurt Thomas. He is as slow as Kurt but Kurt even though he’s slow he was very effective. He uses his body on the inside to create a space for his shots underneath. Other than that, he also needs to add muscles for him to be able to bang with the big guys of the opposing countries/teams. They’ve got one year to practice the moves and Gilas Pilipinas will be better off if they’re able to imitate those moves. GOODLUCK GILAS PILIPINAS!

    Hello. For the benefit of the Pinoys in Europe, can you please tell us where and when the tune-up games in Italy and France will be before the FIBA games in Spain? This would give us the chance to see the Smart Gilas Pilipinas live. Thanks.
