    Is that an excuse why you lost because of 3 imports of your opponent. Philippines never learn, getting undersize line up again. Douthit is your bread and butter w/o him your in a shame lost. Chot Reyes keeps his big players in the bench while the 6’1 players gets the playing time. Forget your ambition Chot Reyes your only competitive in PBA! Height is might in basketball.

    yan c coach chot palagi namang gumagawa ng excuse yan dahil sa import kaya natatalo ang pinas eh paano pa tayo mananalo nyan sa national team ng ibang bansa.kailangan sa basketball matangkad sa tingin ko kasi d ginagamit c jay-r reyes eh.may height naman un.malilit lang yata ang yata ang gustong gusto nyang ginagamit.kaya tama lang ang desisyon ni japeth na hwag munang sumali sa smart gilas basketball naman hindi kailangang umiskor ng marami ang lahat kailangan din depensa.kasi lima naman sila.kung kulang sa iskor sa depensa kukunin.ganun c japeth eh.malakas sa depensa.kahit d makaiskor ng marami hehe.
