    For the coaching staff of gilas. teams to look at on FIBA.

    JORDAN
    LEBANON
    QATAR
    JAPAN
    CHINA
    KOREA
    IRAN

    *Lucky that Kazakhtan will not participate in the FIBA ASIA 2011

    i guess gilas should build up there stamina. although its just a 20 min game, most of the teams uses run & gun style of playing. perfect the shooting. and add another big man. taulava is not enough,(sigurado pag iinitan ng teams si douthit dahil pag wala sya eh butas n gitna natin)
    And lets hope that Kelly, jimmy and Ranidel will adapt quicklyto the system of Coach T.

    nice. pero, pansin ko lang. anong nangyayari sa outside shooting ng gilas? hindi naman pwedeng bilis lang ang gagamitin. take note. malalaki ang players ng ibang team. kaya kaylangan talaga natin ng shooter from outside. although meron naman tayo. siguro, dagdagan pa natin yung kumpyansa sa sarili. ayun. basta, think positive lang palagi. walang aayaw. 😉 hehe.

      may pagasa pa ba ang gilas sa championship o placing na lang?

      • jr says:

        may pag-asa pa. basta i-execute lang nila ng maayos yung play nila. mahigpit na depensa at good outside shooting ang kaylangan. laban sa malalaki at mabibilis nang ibang team. ayun.

    Napansin ko lang na mas magaling dumiskarte si Dylan Ababou kesa kay Mac Baracael at Chris Tiu. Dapat makita ni Toroman na mas competitive ang skills niya

    tama ka…work harder for the adjustments of their shooting. di pwedeng casio at marcus d.lang lagi…

  6. tano says:

    pero magandang result ng project.sana lang ituloy-tuloy na…

    sino makakalaban ng pi sa next game?

  8. jr says:

    sa tingin ko, height advantage din gagamitin ng gilas sa japan. katulad ng ginawa nila sa UAE squad. at sana maging maayos din ang outside shooting ng gilas. dahil mga shooter at mabibilis din ang japan. ayun.
