    These guys needs to think it all over again. This program is not working at all. Not at all.

    C’mon guys, it’s frustrating to see you lose without putting a valiant stand against these guys, all of you are better than them. The game against Iran is an ok loss because you put up a good fight but against qatar. Mac Baracael, Lassiter when you know your shots are not falling outside go inside with jumpers at the paint, it’s acceptable to see you miss in close range jumpers than miss all througout the game with 3 pointers. Marcio what happened with your slashing moves we badly need that since participating in PBA and an altercation with Caguioa happened your game was nowhere.Coach Toroman is looking for a go-to-guy like Kobe or Lebron, He will not find it here in the Philippines for some time, We need a guy who plays like Gabe Freeman who can shoot it at mid range and can go hard to the basket that’s it, The similarity of Professional and FIBA game is that when it’s crunch time you need players that can take charge.We’re lacking at Small forward, a guy who plays the mid range and can drive to the basket at times and most of all with a lot of heart. Go back to basics basic form of shooting like the days of Caidic. Baracael shots are not falling from outside bcoz He shoots it like at the mid range which should’nt be (releasing at the top of jump), 3 point should be shot more like continual jump and quick release like Alapag’s. Poor shooting hurts us a lot, Even when you have good plays if you cannot shoot it, it’s useless.
