    manalo o matalo sa laro ok lng basta lahat filipino ang miyembro ng koponan ng pilipinas.patunayan muna nating filipino na kaya natin manalo ng walang naturalized player bago tayo kumuha ng naturalized player.noong 1990’s,noong wala pa sa national na koponan si marlou aquino,ang sabi ng ibang tao,ang kulang lng ng koponan ng pilipinas ay matatas na manglalaro,totoo naman iyong sinasabi ng ibang tao,kasi,ang pinakamataas lng ng koponan ng pilipinas bago dumating si marlou aquino ay 6’5″ oo 6’6″.saka isa pang bagay tungkol pambansang koponan,hindi kaya nakikita ni chot reyes ang mga kamaliang nagagawa ni norwood kapag si norwood ang nag-i-inbound pass,madalas lagi si norwood natatawagan ng 5 seconds violation.at si mathew wright naman kapag nag-foul laging nasho-shoot iyong tira ng kalaban(foul counted).wala naman akong against sa kanila,kasi iyong ganoong error dito sa pilipinas,sa high school pa lng iyong ganoong error pagagalitan ka na ng coach.

      1990s? ibang iba na ang laro ngayon kaysa dati. Kung di maka inbound si norwood, diba kasalanan nung coach yun kasi di siya nakagawa ng maayos na play para maka inbound ng bola? Palaging problema yun ng gilas kahit sino naman yung mag iinbound. Sa tingin ko maayos na roster natin ngayon, malakas na rebounder si standhardinger, saka kay gabe nakaasign palagi yung pinakamagaling na guard/forward sa kabilang koponan, at si wright ay ang isa sa mga pinakamagaling at pinaka consistent na shooter natin sa roster ngayon. Ang tunay na problema ng gilas sa tingin ko ang coaching staff ng gilas. Palaging hindi maayos yung rotation ni chot saka wala talagang masyadong set na plays yung mga team. Usually hanggang pick and roll ng mga guards at end of shotclock heaves na lang natitira sa ating offense. Kung ang ibang teams palaging may nga set plays sa inbound at nakakascore dun kagaya ng korea, tayo nahihirapan basta mainbound lang ang bola. Parehas lang natin magustong maganda at tumagumpay ang gilas pero ito sa tingin ko ang problema ng ating national team at iba iba lang ang tingin natin sa nangyayari sa gilas ngayon.

        For me in my opinion. Base sa mga napanuod ko. Kulng tlga sa ball movement at magndang screening.. Like what korea did they have very gud ball screen.. Very wide open ahots.. Dahil nga maliit tau dpt tlga marami taung gudluk sa bawat tira..

    Normal na lang yan. Ang US nga halos kadamihan din sa player nila di talaga American- for example si Wesley So. Yan na ang realidad ngayon. Ang citizenship ay status lang na pwedeng baguhin kung gusto- eh madami nga Pilipino nag migrate sa ibang bansa so diba pwede sila pumunta sa atin? Saka kung lahi lang ang paguusapan, wala naman puro eh- and totoong Americano- Indian. Ang totoong Pinoy negrito.

    with regard sa height, marami na tayong matatangkad na player diyan like slaughter at iba pa… kaso ang coaching staff and even us don’t trust or even give them a chance… we love to play small and showcase our talent on dribbling,,,,, i would bet even Kai Soto giganyic height will soon be snob by national selection years from now….. kasi medyo slow o lampa,,, but look at hadaddi… he is also slow in motion but he is so effective…. ask me why? because hi whole team belivev and trust in him as well as the entire nation of iran. we better start reshaping our way of thinking…
