    wag na yang si alapag, masyadong maliit hindi maka lay up. Retire na yan diba? Marami pang available.wag yang puro Players ni MVP. Marami pang magaling sa ibang team. Favoritism ang nangyayari. hindi tayo mananalo kapag ganyan.. Wag na rin tayong umasa na makakalaro si Clarckson para sa ating bansa..
