    Ayos lang yan, habang maaga maka pag adjust sa Line up, makikita na yung kakulangan ng Smart Gilas, Kailangan talaga ng Legitimate 6’11 – 7’0 na pamalit kay Kuya Doutit kailangan talaga si Greg slaughter, Isinama sana si Japeth boring ng Jones Cup pag wala si Japeth, ang dami nag hahanap kay Japeth eh….

  3. this west asian teams are really giving the philippines a very tough nut to crack…the real solution is we filpinos must grow taller soon or we are doomed forever in this basketball world.other countries including china and korea grew taller lately..what seems to be the problem with filipinos? corruption? yung pambili ng vitamins at sapatos ni pedro kinuha ni juan para makaipon at maibili ng karangyaan….

      I disagree to your comment rich, we do have taller players, all we have to do is to toughen their bones/hearts and make them mobile and crafty with their moves, train them to shoot from perimeter distance or 3s, if those were pursued I bet we could win the gold.
