    i agree with coach tab, they’re definitely the best basketball players right now. i just would like to reiterate my position that height is still might in basketball. if we should increase our chances of winning, blatche and fajardo should be playing at the same time, ibuhos na natin lahat,especially 1st and 4th quarter. 2nd and 3rd quarter, they may not play together for obvious reasons of exhaustion. they’re complement. if blatche shoots outside, fajardo can definitely help blatche in rebounding and scoring like tip-in, follow-up or put back. please review gilas vs senegal. see what happened when they’re playing together – PHILS WON. Go! Go! GO! GILAS PILIPINAS!
