    Well as usual the team sorely lack the maturity to play tough basketball. The team and most of its players are rattled in close tight games, they cannot play close games and win the game. They commit errors and turnovers in games that are tight and as a result lose games that could very well characterized them as a good team, tough good team…but its not to be…walang gilas kapag dikdikan ang laban….nababahag ang buntot….

    i think the Gilas would have won it if they had just replaced Dylan Ababou, Jason Ballesteros, and Andy Barroca with Yancy De Ocampo, Kelly Williams, and Jimmy Alapag.

  3. jose asuncion says:

    4 big guys(Douthit, Taulava, De Ocampo, Aguilar) combined with pure shooters(Tiu, Casio, Hontiveros, Alapag) would definitely be lethal!

      hmmm… parang di ko masyado maramdaman presensya ni hontiveros ngayon sa jones cup. di kaya dahil nasa kanya jersey ni kobe? hehe. just kidding. sana this coming fiba asia, pumukol sya. hehe. go hontiveros! go gilas! kaya nyo yan. ;)

  4. jose asuncion says:

    should have been Solomon Mercado instead of Andy Barroca….

    • smartgilas says:

      tama!! si mercado dapat

      but still brad, ung bonding kc mhirap mplitan e..

      • jr says:

        true. pero di mo maiiwasan na magpalit ng player. kaylangan yun, para takpan o lagyan yung kahinan ng team na yun. -sakin lang ha. instead of taulava, sana si thoss nalang. masyado ng mabigat si taulava. di na sya masyado maka sabay sa rebounds. unlike sa dating nyang mga laro. ayun.

        • iceman says:

          actually ang original na request talaga ni toroman saka ng smart gilas eh hiramin sa pba sina jimmy alapag, sol mercado, james yap, joe devance and sonny thoss..yan talaga yung 5 players na gusto nilang kunin kaso siyempre hindi pinayagan ng kanya-kanyang ballclubs dahil nga on-going yung pba season eh mga franchise player yan ng kani-kanilang teams..kaya nauwi sa mga talk n text players like jimmy alapag, kelly williams, ranidel de ocampo..w/c are all under mvp because he owns the talk n text franchise..sina dondon hontiveros naman replacement for james yap and asi taulava for sonny thoss..buti sila pinayagan ng mga teams nila na maglaro for the national squad..

          • jr says:

            tama. hay. sana pinayagan nalang nila. hindi lang naman para sa gilas yun e. para sa bayan. para sa lahat ng mga pilipinong na naniniwala na kaya natin muling maghari sa larong basketball dito sa asya.

    PH just got pawned… KOREANS RULE!♥

    KOREANS>>>PH

    oh yeah, i Love it right down to my core!♥ ^^

  6. acgbox says:

    If not with the PBA finals, Williams and Alapag could have joined this CUP, It’s unfortunate that we could not see the same Philippine Team that has gone toe to toe with SMART NBA All Stars., We hope that we could in the FIBA Champions Cup, Let us hope that Philippines would make it to Olympics once again!

  7. lala says:

    Kung nireplace po nila ung mga players na sinabi mo with your suggested players, edi kulang sana sa tao ang gilas.

  8. mac says:

    smart gilas is lacking back-up for 5 position and 4 spot,cause our 4 or powerforward is under size compare to other asian teams..ok na ang 3,2 and 1 position..

  9. kaka says:

    aminin na natin di natin kaya yang mga yan kapag ganyan mga players natin isolid na kasi kung kailangan panay filam gawin na kelan pa tayo aabot sa olympics pagputi ng uwan baka nagkaapo na yung anak ko dipa rin natin nararating yung olympics o khit fiba man lang!magtukungan kasi hindi lang c mvp panu kung wala c mpv di pakay na!dati rati nung 80’s panis sating mga yan ngayon tayo pinaglalaruan…hay buhay nga naman dyan sa pinas pa

  10. kaka says:

    todo support pa naman mga ofw natin sa taiwan kaso sawing palad,wala ng pagasa yan korea-jordan na yan pang 3rd na lang ulit.better luck next time.sana next year pure pba players na kunin yung matinik talaga hindi yang mga amatuer tapos c tim cone ang kunin coach saka c chot.kinuha nga cla dylan saka yung iba ibabangko lang pala bwusit na toroman yan.sarap torohin eh

    • jr says:

      sir, di naman po sa kinakampihan ko si coach toroman. pero, sa nakikita ko, magaling na coach sya. maganda i-pinapakita ng smart gilas. kahit na aminado syang dehado talaga pagdating sa size ng players. but still, nagagawa nila ng maayos yung play nila. tsaka, isipin mo nalang sir. halimbawa. gusto mong humiram sa ibang tao ng bagay na alam mong makakatulong sayo o sa team mo. pero, ayaw ka pahiramin. (PBA) ayun lang naman yung nakikita ko. and regarding naman sa bangko factor, ang alam ko, papalitan din yung dalawa (not sure) nila williams, alapag at de ocampo. finals kasi ng PBA ngayon. kaya di sila naka paglaro. ayun. anyway, salama po sa pag suporta nyo sa smart gilas. hopefully, maka pasok sila sa london olympics. :)

  11. kaka says:

    dapat paghandaan na bago dumating sept para sa fiba qualifier kung sinu sinu papadala kung yaan ulit yung line-up ala na para lang tayong ogag dun.tatalunin lang natin mga paksiw na team pero dipa din tayo mananalo sa korea iran jordan bak sa japan matalo pa tayo,pba players na ipadala!anu sa tingin mo moderator?

    • jr says:

      sir, sa pagkakaalam ko, final line-up na po yun ng smart gilas. nadagdag lang sila williams, alapag at de ocampo. at pinasa na nila yun sa fiba officials/commitee.

  12. jnj says:

    No problem we have made a big leap with the Smart Gilas program. Now we have a legitimate chance of winning. If we stay the course, give it another to a couple of years will beat them convincingly like we once did during our glory years. Hey this tournament is not over we will see Korea again so keep the faith….

  13. lamont says:

    the main problem is they cannot concentrate in crucial game..they are lack of experience.. they should allow more PBA players like kelly williams, jimmy alapag and ranidel de ocampo so that they can have a big chance for winning the fiba asia next month in china..

  14. Michael says:

    Speechless for me and less expectation. Just too bad for basketball industry here in the Philippines.

  15. omeng azar says:

    Now everyone recognizes that it’s not defense that primarily wins games but OFFENSE. Now you see why we need a bunch of pure shooters on the team and not just JV Casio. That’s what ails all our teams pro or amateur, too inordinately focused on defense to really concentrate on being on top instead of always managing to play catch-up. Bale-wala ang depensa kung hindi naman nag-aakyat ng numbers sa scoreboard dahil walang opensa. Remember, the good offender will always inflict more damage than the good defender because basketball is a scoring game. The winner is always the better OFFENDER, not DEFENDER. The defender can only win if he is a better offender first. We can’t really understand this inordinately hyped focus on defense that wins games. Only the NBA can expertly say and do that but we amateurs blindly internalize what we don’t fully understand, just because the big boys say so. Just keep shooting your baskets straight and see how they win you more games because you have a tumbang-preso instead of a patintero mentality.

  16. omeng azar says:

    •Unlike the old glory days of RP basketball, overwhelming firepower always won international campaigns for us. Don’t you realize we have more defenders in basketball these days than real scorers? You wanna know why we used to have a Papa, Adornado, Florencio, Co and other big-time offenders in our champion ABC line-ups? You wanna know why we became Jones Cup champions over a USA team during the time of Allan Caidic and Chip Engelland? Not that we had fake naturalized Americans, but that these two names alone spelled “withering firepower” that made the US team scratch their heads in disbelief. And now we all wonder why we never beat the Koreans? Understand that from the time of Shin Dong Pa, the Sokors never reliquished that shooting tradition in favor of defense. Sure they developed defense too, but we can never ever beat them in the scoring tradition of Mr. Shin, while we in PHP let go of these skills in favor of “clinical/scientific” basketball” that teaches our children more how to spider-dribble and employ robotic 1-2-3 movements that killed our versatility. In our time, missing free throws was mortal sin and so as illegal travel calls so rampant silly committed even by pros. We went Smart Gilas because the pros couldn’t do it and unlearn whatever mistakes they were paid to maintain by becoming the basketball hermits of Asia because the PBA never exposed itself to international competition. And I hope Smart Gilas proves our critics wrong and do better by developing a core scoring machine. It’s never too late to start redirecting these skills.that can defeat even the biggest and most athletic of teams in Asia. At tama si jjhohnkarlo, we still lack that toughness in the end game, taranta-error- turnover lagi ang downfall.

    I was a MICAA veteran and I couldn’t agree any stronger. I was part of those glory days and our basketball mentality was much different than today’s. The teams now got stronger ang bigger but so were they in those days compared to us Pinoys. But right you are, we kept shooting down the opposition. In our day you could say the best offense was the best defense. Most of us were 70%-90% free throw shooters and rarely committed travelling violations. It’s the way kids are trained these days kaya nagiging parehong kanan o parehong kaliwa lang ang paa. Shin-Dong-Pa correctly analyzed that when he came over to visit over the years, he only saw 3 players who can use either foot to move or jumpshoot – Atoy Co, Hector Calma and Johnny Abarrientos, no mas.

  18. ffmn6w says:

    Arwyn Santos, Alapag, Mercado and ocampo are my recommendables.

  19. potskie says:

    kasi basketball dito sa pilipinas is more on trabaho lang kulang sa dedication para sa bansa!!! kaya maraming player na dapat na nakikipaglaban para sa flag natin ang hindi nakakasama dahil ang priority nila is $$$$$.

  20. Chandy Garcia says:

    South Korea is a tough team but we can defeat them if we replace some of our players with williams and alapag, I saw our fellow filipino’s in the stadium laughing when Ha is in the free throw line. HA HA HA! that made my day HA HA HA!

  21. ernest says:

    If coach Ray-co Toroman subtituted Japet Aguilar instead of Marcio Lassiter in the final 2 minutes of the game versus South Korea. It is possible the Smart Gilas have won the game. Remember Lassiter commited 2 turn overs last game between Jordan. Also Marcus Doughtit was fouled out already replaced by Asi Taulava but he could not even jump higher in getting rebounds so he need Japet Aguilar as support for rebounds.

  22. jt says:

    suportahan na lang ang smart gilas, wag na tirahin p
