    Gilas should have these guys for the senior team. I don’t understand why we always carry these old guys.
    Ravena + paras would be great for developmental purposes and could help in spot minutes.

    I thought Gilas revamped their “program”. I hope they have better plans for Asia basket. SEABA would’ve been the perfect time to get some minutes for young players and/or potential prospects for intl tourneys.

      Probably because the goal for now is the World Cup and all the players in the current pool will be at their prime by then and Ravena Kobe etc won’t.

      Still I agree that somehow they should have been included. Even Parks.
