    Has that Boy BELO gone home already? Well, saves him some sweat. He’s not doing anything anyway. Nealy same as error prone no-shoot KOBE. Seeing this Paras kid play with the Bigs, I now know why nothing happened during his American schools stint…. Para kasi bakla kung kumilos eh. Masahol pa kina Jun Mar at Slaughter. Truly not a high-caliber cager worthy of NBA. Sorry, I’m just being HONEST.


    My vote for MR CONSISTENCY goes to WRIGHT, RAVENA, STANDINGHHARDINGER. Honorable mentions are Myers and Jalalon. Pogoy has the bad habit of GETTING LOST. Wrost performer so far is KOBE PARAS, the error-prone, no shoot ex-U.S. “trained” dude, My two million cents on this Gilas Team. Let’s hope they get past the Korean…. By maybe 17 pts in anticipation of a triple tie, should the Korean luckily beat Canada, by more than 16 pts. GOOD LUCK, GILAS…. YOU NEED LOTS OF IT based on the 3 quarters against Japan this noon. YOU SURE GAVE US THE BEEJEEVIES! Good thing you checked their trifecta gunners, who were GREAT! HOW ABOUT OURS? WHERE??????
