    Compare to smart gilas 1 they still lack cohesion,no fast no clutch shooter,still lacking in defense,they will find it hard to penetrate the much faster Korean,and Chinese taipe all star.hope they can adjust..

      Why didn’t they use the Rosser guy? I think Gilas needs some inside intimidation (like a Japeth Aguilar/ Kelly Williams) even if they don’t contribute much on offense, make the opponent’s shots more difficult to take. We can’t take all opponents on a shootout just like this game. Some team like KOR can easily overpower us with their insanely-accurate 3pt shooting. I think its a work in progress, so make us proud Gilas 😀

    I think Gary David will play the role of clutch shooter…but in terms of fast….yes!definitely they have a problem. Defense, they can work it out, as long as they play in hustle type of game. Most of the players here are not the superstar of their respective team so i’m sure most of them will play like hungry team not a star player.

    congrats gilas 2 sa panalo.ang problima b umalik na naman tau sa dati maraming turn ang ibig sabihin nyan pag sumali tau sa international games palagi taung kumukuha lang ng experience hindi ang manalo ang hinahanap natin kundi experience.kawawa lng tau jan.pagdating sa korea at china tagilid tau jan.masyadong maliit line palagay ko itong mga players ang isama sa rp team,aldrich ramos,aguilar,washington,ryan reyes,jr reyes,dillinger,pingris,castro,fajardo,slaugther.habang maaga pa kailangan masanay na c fajardo sa mga international plays.kagaya ng china bata pa lang sinasanay na sa mga international games.ang problima kasi sa atin kahit may potential ayaw nating gamitin.kagaya ni aguilar hindi pinaglaro sa semis against jordan.kulang nga sya play.pero kaya nyang bantayan ang malalaking players ng ibang bansa at saka ma bilis sya kaya nyang sumabay.iba parin ang matangkad sa basketball.kailangan natin ang matangkad sa 3 & 4 positions.para taung bulag kung hindi natin nakikita un.hindi lang naman center ang kahinaan ng rp team

    Where is coach toroman now and what happenned to the old team, I thought they will play for the nxt 3 yrs

    • Butch says:

      Hindi na renew yong contract ni Toroman. Pinalit ni MVP c Chot Reyes. Toroman is w/ SMC now. Try to watch SMC games and you will find Coach Toroman Sitting Behind the SMC Bench. In fact he was present during the rookie draft yesterday, of course with the Petron team.

    kung speed ang aggresiveness lang ang paguusapan okei naman ang team but the problem is wala tau maxadong taller guys who will get the rebouds especially taking blockshots like arwindsantos and jay washington..
    But i think we can cope and adjust to the other team
