Kung posible lang sana(pero nagpauna na ako-IMPOSIBLE ito), madali maresolbahan ang kakulangan sa height ng backcourt ng NT kung papayag magpahiram ng players ang PBA .At ang ipapahiram for two years will play for NT alone.Talagang liliban sila for 2 or 3 years.Katulad ng nasabi ko kanina mukhang imposible nga ito.
Sabihin natin na ----kung puede lang , ang mga mairekomenda ko sa backcourt will be.
PG :Gabe Norwood(6'4)-PG ang laro nito ng nasa NCAA Division 1 ito.Recifient din siya ng 6th man award .Kay sigurado ako natural PG ito.
PG:Paul Lee(6'0)-Medyo mailiit na sa hinihinging 6'2 na minimum pero kung back-up ni Norwood puede na.Mas malaki si Lee kung ikumpara kay Casio,Barocca at ang bagong PG daw ngayon ng NT na si Monfort .
SG:Arwind Santos(6'4)-Noong naglalaro ito sa FEU maganda ang perimeter shooting nito.Very athletic at mahusay din na defender.
SG:James Yap(6'3) -Siya pa rin ang tinuturing na pinakamagaling na shooter na naglalaro sa PBA ngayon.Mahusay din itong defender.
Ito sanang apat magandang combination.May shooting at may height para sa position ng 1 at 2.Pero mukhang imposobleng ipahiram ito.Kapag hinati naman nila ang oras nila between NT at PBA ay siguradong mag-suffer lang pareho ang performance ng mga ito.Masyado na silang magiging ever-extended.
Sa palagay ko wala na sa PBA ang puedeng ilagay sa position ng PF at Center na lalaro sa FIBA.Ang medyo malaki na lang diyan ay si Thoss at Hussaini na parehong 6'7.Pero sa height na 6'7 masyadong undersize na para sa PF sa FIBA.Dapat nasa 6'10 na ang minimum.Hindi mo naman sila puedeng ilagay bilang 3,dahil mukhang hindi sila puede para sa position na iyon.
Sa SF o 3 spot mayroon pa rin puedeng manggaling sa PBA.Kailangan diyan at least 6'7 at decent naman ang perimeter shooting.
Sa ngayon si Kelly Williams lang ang puede sa tingin ko(kahit pumalpak ang FT niya noong laro sa Korea -----tao lang,Si Kelly pa rin ang pinakamagaling na puedeng 3 sa NT).
Mayroong iba na puedeng 3 pero dissappointing din ang laro
Ranidel de Ocampo-Maganda ang pasimula niya noong FIBA pero kung kailan kailangan na maganda aang laro niya(Jordan at Korea), doon pa nagkaroon ng off-night
Japeth Agular:Hindi rin maganda ang performance niya sa FIBAAko ay kinukutuban na si Japeth is parang nagmumukhang second-coming of a ----Marlou Aquino.......Kutob ko lang.
Hindi ko alam kung takot tumira si Japeth or nasa sistema ni Toroman na wala siyang go signal na tumira, dahil may games si Japeth dati lalo na yung huli siya umiskor ng malaki ay yung unang game ata nila sa Jones Cup(as far as I can remember).
For me, the jury is still out there with regards to Japeth's offensive skills. Defensively though, he is a monster. Wag lang gigil dahil may sakit siya na kumagat sa mga fakes ng kalaban. Mahuli lang niya yung fakes ng kalaban, sigurado supalpal aabutin nila kay Japeth.
The most logical starting PF for a national team besides Aguilar would be 6'6"-6'7" Jay Washington. He has both post/inside and outside game. Very athletic like Aguilar.
^ kaya lang very demanding sa bola si washington. kung pagsusumikapan lang sana ni japeth ang outside shooting nya... sayang kasi ang liksi nya e. sino kaya shooting coach ng TnT?
For me it's ok if you hog the ball as long as you make sure that you can score. Hindi katulad ng ibang player tulad ni Caguioa, that in recent years puro porma, puro dribble hindi naman maka iscore consistently, lalong lalo na pag international game. Same with Sol Mercado, who is very inconsistent in his shooting and penetration.
Legit 6'7" naman sina Rabeh and Thoss. Parang Ben Wallace na 6'7" and 6'8" Hedo Turkoglo na 6'9" and 6'10" ang nakalista sa NBA.com.
Japhet is not passive unblike gabe you can be a pba all star even if you are passive mountains of difference between passive and TENTATIVE
so ano itong pagkkaintindi ko sa situation ni Rajko the position of consultant is reserved to you, but you are free to find better job somewhere else
I hope they get Stanley Pringle and Chris Banchero to alternate at PG sopt for 2013 FIBA Asia and then develop Kiefer Ravena to succeed them after.
Pringle and Banchero are both athletic 6'1 natural PG's.. a big upgrade from our current PG's
They also should naturalize a younger version of Douthit who will be 33 by 2013
Gabe is actually a natural PG. Even though he's 6'4"-6'5", he doesn't score that much because he doesn't really play that way.
Akala ko din dati passive lang laro ni Gabe or parang rookie bust. Pero when I learned he played PG in the US, then I realized he has the mindset of a PG. Whether he's a good or a bad point guard is a different story all together.
First of all, Gilas shouldve beaten Jordan. Then Korea. We had the chance. and that's all we had.
Magpasalamat pa nga tayo natalo sa IRAN ang Jordan.
We beat Jordan during the Elims. Losing to them in the semis clearly says Gilas was over confident and complacent.
Now, losing to Korea is BIG!
Remember tides turned into our favor during the competition.
IRAN was eliminated, we didnt face China in the semis.
All we had to do is, MAINTAIN THE LEAD UNTIL THE LAST BUZZER SOUNDS! against Korea.
You know what really annoyed me, was that guy MIKO HALILI!
Hindi pa tapos ang laro , kung magsalita sya akala tayo na pinakamagaling na Basketball team sa buong mundo!
I remember during the Chinese taipei match, he was speaking so SUBECTIVELY about the game. He was like watching the game in his own sofa while talking to a personal friend while drinking beer.
HE jinxed us. Yes, I am a religious person!
I learned this from my Father,
"Never celebrate early!".. play consistent basketball until the last BUZZER sounds!" especially in amateur games..
Together with my father, from my elementary to present, I have seen teams losing even when leading a BIG MARGIN during the 4th quarter.
(MOST RECENT EXAMPLE: NBA Finals Heat vs Mavs GAME3... remember Lebron and Wade chest bumping together w/ the rest of the heat players? )
yes, that's the one.
How can one Korean basketball player, shoot 15 points in the 4th quarter???
shooters dont miss, unless being guarded TIGHTLY, locked down, or even a hand in the face.
Filipinos often get excited PRE-MATURELY!
the reason for the relax defense in the last 4 minutes of play...
oh and MIKO HALILI? go back to College! you're not supposed to do that on NAtional TV. MORON!
We cant afford a 3 spot who cant shoot on the outside consistently!
ex: Kelly Williams (not even good at making FREE throws )
Kelly is a solid player, if he goes in, the position 4 should atleast have a mid range jumper.
the only mistake TOroman did, was to put Williams in during a -free throw battle- minute of the game.
He doesnt even look good shooting the ball man.. he should have a Shooting COach, like Dirk.
we should consider dex pittman to be our future naturalized center, he was a dominating big man in the BIG 12 conference with the texas longhorns, but he just cant find his niche in the nba(the miami heat is considering giving eddy curry a chance ) just like douthit, 6'11 300 pounds
he is considering jumping to the euroleague if the lockout doesnt end
sana eto na ang maging TEAM PILIPINAS.
