What’s your message to Calvin Abueva?

Tab Baldwin and Calvin Abueva

“Abueva” was one of the trending topics on twitter the day Gilas Pilipinas Final 12 was announced not because he was included in the line-up but his exclusion was a shock to many basketball fans.

I know we all think that we need The Beast Calvin Abueva in Gilas Pilipinas for the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament but we must support the decision of Coach Tab Baldwin and the Coaching Staff to put him in the reserve list.

I am sure it was a very difficult decision by the Coaching Staff but it is time to move on and give our all out support to Gilas Pilipinas!

    The Beast. Ikaw lng talaga ang dapat magmay-ari ng monicker na yan kasi bagay na bagay sayo. I am not a fan of you as an Alaska player, pero I admire the way you played in Gilas. Hndi ka man nasali sa final roster, alam naman ng lahat na malaki ang naitulong mo noon last year sa Fiba Asia at maitutulong mo pa sa susunod na International competitions na sasalihan ng Gilas. So sana huwag mo masyado damdamin ang nangyari. Alam mo din naman ang process, kaya alam mo din na dapat talaga pumili si Coach Tab sa ayaw o sa gusto nya. Alam ko di na bago sayo yan. Move forward and keep supporting our team. Do not lose hope. Stay being the Filipino Beast.

      Calvin’s height is 6’2 or 6’3′. This doesn’t suit for world caliber games where the average height for the big teams is 6″6. Playing for the position 3 and 4 gives Gilas Pilipinas National team a big handy cap at wing side. He is really a beast in the hard court. His agility, his stamina, his fighting form and spirit soars over the other guys. But..giving that handy for the team is not helping it attain its higher goals..winning in a state higher of its level.

      But that should not be the end of his active participation for the National team. In fact ..with his style and dedication..he must be a throw-in come next opportunity. But this time we should see Calvin metamorphosed playing the role for the 1 and 2 positions and not the 3 and 4. We need a shifty, agile, aggressive point and off guards with a higher ceiling. Excellent in playmaking and in points production. Calvin should not get off his eyesight for the team.

      What he must do if he still interested.. train himself as point guard… as big scoring machine and play maker. I was telling before , adapt the Clyde Drexler way of training and obtain a point shooting skills both in the shaded lane and in the 3-points territory. But he must have an excellent dribbling skills. He can become an excellent point guard with higher ceiling.

      His time and presence is not yet lost if taken positively.

    Calvin played a big role in the Fiba Asia, so he doesn’t deserved to be out in the line up!

    Di ako naniniwala na height will matters most mataas ka nga di ka naman marunong dumipensa at tumiming useless, Cguro kung ang head coach pinoy definitely pasok si calvin. kaming mga alumni ng baste para sa amin ikaw pa rin ang the best, iba ka pare nasa iyo na ang lahat pagdating sa laro. Kaya huwag tayo ma shock kung bakit di ka nakasama kasi yung MVP at BPC mo delayed din, Malamang sa GILAS ganyan din. BRAVO BASTE!!!
