its like a pba backed national team with a prime Asi Taulava
yeah Marcus is good but he does not have Asi's toughness in his heyday
tnt almost made it in this edition they try to add Ranidel, Jimmy and Kelly if you add Asi a known tnt legend and Japhet in the final line up and also rumors that they want to add Ryan and Larry in the lineup but the grandslam did not happen and borrowing a famous line from their coach laspag na ang tnt boys

you cant blame the pba along with the pba teams honestly,
truth is whenever the pba would lend its players to the national, it affects the pba entirely their ratings go down , attendance drop.
afterall they tried it a couple of times already still we never bring home the championship.
so why continue on . . . . its not about talangka mentality but prove something works , really cant blame the pba since its a dying league already di na katulad dati talagang buhay na marami nanonood.
look at it now, no station wants to broadcast it games. to the point advertising during nba and uaap time is more compare to pba.
^^tanggalin na kasi ang wednesday games. Gawing National Team days ang Tuesday at Wednesday..
Mas lalong malalaos ang PBA kapag nagalit ang mga basketball fans dahil ayaw nila tumulong sa National Team.
People have so many ways to get information nowadays and they all know that PBA and its stars are nowhere near the level of our top Asian counterparts. Instead of dilly-dallying they should act now where we have a very capable SBP organization to help them. Hindi din naman full PBA roster ang kailangan just a handpicked players from the league.
Ang problema lang talaga is kahit sa sports nakikipag kompetensya pa rin ang SMC at ang kay MVP samahan mo pa ng mga ganid na ibang teams at wala talaga tayong patutunguhan.
I think the opposite effect would happen once we see our PBA players compete against Asia's best. Doon mo makikita ang tunay na galing at kakayahan ng isang player. At pag nakita mo yon, mas lalo kang hahanga sa kanila...and therefore...mas papanoorin mo lahat ng laro nila. Saka paliit na ng paliit na kasi ang mundo ngayon. Hindi pwedeng may sariling mundo pa din tayo ng basketball.
^ mr.henyo, naalala ko sabi ko dati unity ang kailangan, sinupalpal mo ako, sabi ko kailangan magkaisa si danding at mvp, sabi mo hindi unity ang problema, sorry slow ko late reaction na lang, ang sarap lang balikan ng mga ala-ala, lalo't pag nakikita mong tama ka din pala after all, parati ko binabasa mga comment niyo dito, inconsistent, walang credibility, always thinking about yourselves, feeling henyo
parati kayong all amateurs noon, go for the all-amateurs it's the move to make, tapos nung wala din pala, singing new tune, damot ng pba, susmiyo, it's all about talent and unity
^ sasabihin ko lang na kahit unahin mo pakainin ang pamilya mo kng galing naman sa masama e wala pa ring kwenta.. if you play for your country and sacrifice all ok pa.. pero kng galing sa nakaw na pera ibabayad sayo ng kompanya na korakot at di naman talaga mayaman , yumaman lang dahil sa ginto ni marcos.. sno kaya un?
hay naku, *** mga 90s superstars ang dahilan kung bakit mahina at hindi na vocal ang player's union. Puro Fil-am issue inasikaso nila..
Make gilas like a pba team. May sweldo, may contract, etc. magiging ok yan. Kaya lang, kung nagkaganyan, kelangan nang tanggalin ng pba ang "only the best play here"
Kiefer Ravena Greg Slaughter, give them salaries like in the pba. hindi na nila iisiping magPBA. Just let them commit fully sa smart gilas at yun na ang core ng gilas. Maski si
Ravena and Slaughter
yan ang core nila. yung iba, let them play at dedesisyunan kung gaano katagal contract sweldo etc.
wag na muna isali si ravena, obvious naman na ateneo priority niya.
Sayang lang ang playing time, ibigay nalang sa player na handang lumaro sa September Fiba-Asia games
huwag na kasi mangarap na makakabalik ang Phil basketball sa international status natin nun '70s-'80s

"Shtanhardinga" is still a prospect.
In other news, former Blue Eaglet Gian Chiu is itching to play out his injury-free senior year with the Oberlin College Yeomen. The 6'9 pre-med student has the option of becoming a C or PF for Smart Gilas 2.0 or, more likely, its team physician
(2007-2008): Played in 25 of Oberlin’s 26 games in first season with the Yeomen … As a freshman, Chiu was one of three players to start more than 17 games (21) … Compiled three double-figure games including a career-high 15 against Kenyon (2/13/08) … Led the team in charges taken with 11 … Finished the season third on the team in field goal percentage (.462) … Chiu was among the team leaders in blocked shots (2nd – 12), rebounds (3rd – 57), scoring (5th – 5.4 points per game), and minutes played"

Top pick Casio disappointed over contract: report
MANILA, Philippines – Former Smart Gilas standout JV Casio is apprehensive about the contract offered to him by the Powerade Tigers, the team that made him the number 1 pick in the 2011 PBA Rookie Draft.
According to PBA.ph, Powerade is only offering Casio a 2-year deal.
"We've heard Powerade will only give a new contract after the 3rd year, and it will be based on the performances of the player and the team," Casio's agent, Charlie Dy, told PBA.ph.
Casio's contract situation is in contrast with 2nd over-all pick Paul Lee, who has been signed to a maximum 3-year contract by Rain or Shine. He will be paid the league maximum of P150,000 monthly.
"Parang hindi fair, kumpara sa ibang fellow first round picks ni JV na nabigyan ng tig-ti-three-year contracts," Dy said.
The agent said that he and Casio will meet with the team management Wednesday, but are already considering other options.
Dy revealed that if Casio is indeed offered only a 2-year deal, the star point guard may opt not to sign with Powerade.
"We just have to listen to what they have to say, about their plans for JV and with regards to the team," Dy said.
