No Jordan Clarkson in FIBA OQT

Jordan Clarkson

According to Manny V. Pangilinan or MVP, FIBA made them choose between using Andray Blatche and Jordan Clarkson and the SBP and the Gilas Pilipinas Coaching Staff decided to stick with Blatche since choosing Clarkson will result in a more complicated process.

Statement of MVP during the FIBA OQT Press Conference:
“When I was in Geneva last March, we talked about Jordan Clarkson again and I was told to choose between him and Andray Blatche.”

“The decision is to get Blatche back. We’re only talking about the FIBA OQT. Mas familiar si Andray sa system ni Tab and the players so given the short preparation time, I think the safer choice is Blatche.”

“Blatche is already a naturalized Filipino while si Jordan, we have to go through a long process and documentation at saka masalimuot yung pagkuha sa kaniya kasi we have to go through several groups. We don’t know if whether he would have enough time to be here to prepare for the July event.”

    So sad naman, hindi ba pwedeng Filipino si J. C. at naturalized si A.B.?

    Sus, FIBA talaga. Ang sabihin niyo, gusto niyo ng padulas pero hindi nagbigay si MVP, kaya ito yung ginagawa niyo. Masyado kayong obsessed sa pagsunod sa FIFA kaya pati kakurakutan nila ginaya niyo rin.

      sir dapat i process na yung qualification ni jordan clarkson sa fiba para maaga pa lang cgurado na tayo sa kanya. Dapat kasi dyan nai process na yung papers nya bago pa magsimula yung fiba asia sa Hunan. Hindi yung madi-disappoint lang tayo.

    Why we need to choose kung PH passport holder naman sabi nyo dati? I suspect JC PH Passport is Fake kaya hindi pinayagan maglaro…pwede pero naturalized…tayo lang niloloko nito.
