    Had alot of trouble with the length.

    not sure why this pool doesnt have more 3pt shooting.

    I wouldve liked to see more PT from reyes and aguilar.

    Alot of forced one-one dribbling from romeo.

    good day, basketball fans.’twas just a friendly tune-up game (gilas vs turkey). haven’t seen the game but i still haven’t (and will never) lost hope in our chances of making it to the olympics. i firmly believe in our gilas players, mentored by their brilliant coaches. you are our source of inspiration and pride. just a simple advice though, please utilize the deadly duo of blatche (who could shoot, defend and rebound) and fajardo (who could help blatche in offensive/defensive rebounds/defense and score) at the same time and most of the time… just like the game against senegal,the duo could be a force to reckon with. please back them up with tall guards like parks, and shooters like de ocampo and chan. first five should be blatche, fajardo (not pingris – he’s good but comparatively short in height/not heart huh), de ocampo, parks, chan or castro. gilas, i am so proud of you, never lost patience and hope. just do your best and keep the faith. gilas, we love you.

    Remove LA Tenorio. Make sure Lassiter is in. Tenorio’s time is over, we can no longer the Tenorio who dominated the court in Jones Cup. He has slowed down unfortunately, unless he proves his worth, lets give chance to the other players that has shown consitency in their career in the PBA. #justsaying

      that is true….. remove tenorio from the Gilas lineup and find some pointguards that can run fast and can shoot vs taller defenders and can execute plays better…

    it is so unfair to kick-out the beast who has the heart of effort and stand up in the name of Leadership and courage!
