    Whatever nega guys say about Blatche, no one can deny that his NBA experience has toughened him in any kind of international hostilities. Methinks altho Standhardinger is a good TEAMMATE-protector his caging skills are still raw and need lots of more honing. He has no outside shot. Even his perimeter blasts are of the flip-n-pray variety. And his free shooting is dismally atrocious. He needs more basketball years to approximate Blatche’s caliber, as we have seen already. My two million cents.The Defense rests, Your Honor! 😉


    Without Blatche and without a RELIABLE OUTSIDE GUNNER save for Wright, this team will need MIRACLES to make it big in FUBA Lebanon. What’s needed are at ,east THREE reliable trifecta shooters in the Wright mold. With only one, if Wright’s gun goes blank, PATAY KAYO!

    Another thing GILAS needs to improve — and IMPROVE DRASTICALLY! — is its free shooting. The bane and blight of past Pinas teams since Caloy’s time. Ewan ko ba, kahit na ung mga PBA na PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS na, pero ang hina sa free shots. The phletora of missed freebies often spell the difference between W and L of any team. Notice how almost perfect was Japan’s and Korea’s free shooting. Look it up. PLEASE PRACTICE THIS PARTICULAR ASPECT OF YOUR GAME, BOYS!

    Mas experience at magaling si Blatche kaysa kay naturalized Standhardinger naman. Malaking bagay din sana si Blatche kung kasama pa rin sya sa lineup, iba yung may experience sa NBA talaga.

    Sana Allein Maliksi na lng instead of Jio Jalalon. Masyado na tyo maliit tapos small guard pa. . hindi naman katulad ni Jimmy na tumitira parati ng 3 point shot samantala si Allein 3 point champion.☺

      C Maliksi nsa SEA-game lineup Jio FIBA kahit malaki kalaban sumasaksak sa loob yan lineup ni ALAPAG/kun na panoorin mo sa JONES CUP makikita mo ung laban nya (canada,iran,Taepei,Korea,etc.) lagi na sa 1st five xa

    Bakit ba ala si maliksi… Ang hilig tlga sa pungok ni chot..gaya nila mag ama…mga bansot.. Katawa kinuha anak sa staff di naman qualified..daan libo pa siguru sweldo nyang anak nya…tsk tsk

  6. Efren says:

    Why not greg slaughter in the position of standhardinger?

  7. Lino says:

    Not now for Slaughter. Magadjust muna siya after a long rest and magdecide siya if he is willing to serve the national team. We need height but we need solid and strong decision to serve the country.
