my wishlist for Gilas v 2.0 would be Greg Slaughter, Aldrech Ramos, Kiefer Ravena, Ray Parks, RR Garcia & Sudan Daniel. That is apart from Chris Tiu & Marcus Douthit that may vie for FIBA 2013 Asia Championship. A good training ground would be the new SM MOA Arena come 2012.
si Chris Tiu, sa Gilas na mag retire.
fil am ba si Parks?
ako dream Gilas 2.0
core - Tiu, Douhtit, Aguilar, Slaughter, Fajardo, Ravena, Garcia, Parks?
dagdag nalang ng iba sa amateur
kulang pinoy sa SF. kung mahihiram nila si Williams and Santos sa team, ayos na ayos. sama mo pa si castro pambutas ng depensa.
dream lang naman. hahaha
How about the assistant coaching staff? Any thoughts? Who would you like to see for assistant coaches and scouts?
Aside from Ryan Gregorio, they have a very mediocre line of assistants. Surely, there are much more talented prospects in the Philippines aside from Jude and Charles.This is in stark contrast to Ron Jacobs' promising team of scouts that inclued Jong Uichico, Derek Pumaren and Cris Calilan.
Some faces I would like to see are:
Jerry Codinera/Alvin Patrimonio - big man
Bogs Adornado/Ritchie Ticzon - Shooting
Manny Dandan (proven to be a very good student)
coach/ toroman or cone
C: douhtit/Slaughter/fajardo if available
PF:sanggalang/stanhardinger/ gian chui has the size kaso injured prone pero why not.
SFarks my dream is for parks to play SG but lack of young prospect who can play SF made me choose to play him at the SF. Camson/salva
taha if his fil am
Dream line-up ko:
C - (Naturalized young NBA Center) Hibbert/Lopez/Monroe, Slaughter
PF - Fajardo, Chiu,
SF - Aguilar, Standhardinger, Rosser
SG - Holt, Parks
PG - Pringle, Banchero, Ravena
Reserves - Ramos, Garcia
Coach - Spoelstra, (Asst) Toroman, (Asst) Cone
GM - Tiu Bros
Sponsor - MVP
Dapat convert nilasi Ravenasa PG. magiging weak link sya sa defense sa SG sa international games. How about yung anak ni Banal? 6"2 na SG dati pero nasa USA NCAA na sya nagyon ang convert sasa PG position
sana ito ang line up. ng bagong team pilipinas.
pg/ jv casio/kiefer ravena/chris banchero
sg/ bobby ray parks/gabe norwood
sf/ christian standhardinger/japeth aguilar/aldrech ramos
pf/ junmar fajardo/gian chiu
c/ greg slaughter/marcus douthit
christian standhardinger - what's with this guy? I heard he already played with the German Youth team.
akala ko ang Smart Gilas ginawa para sa 4yr plan to play/qualify for the Olympics?
the smart gilas pilipinas basketball team just ended the fiba-asia tournament 2011 with a sorry note... they just lost to the korean team... however, even though the team lost, many of us spectators still feel proud with what they've achieved... we commend the team for their sacrifices, their gallant stand and their amazing efforts... its so sad to see though that yet again, we failed to achieve our goals and that is to make it to the olympics... with that said, i would like again to congratulate the gilas team for doing their best... thanks for making us proud...
now that our dream to enter the london olympiad has been doused with a cold water, i would like to know what's next. will the gilas program be retained? will toroman still coach that team? how is philippine basketball in its entirety react to yet another loss in its bid to redemption?
first off, i believe that for us to really have a REAL national basketball program, the big companies should give its entire resource to make this work... like right now... smart communications seemed to be the only one who helps the program... can't san miguel corporation help them??? how about the pba??? can't they lend some of their other superstars to help the national cause??? gabe norwood would have been a big help... l.a. tenorio would have been a big help... joe devance, mercado, baclao and a few others could have helped...
and what's with the name, smart gilas?? i mean, yeah, we appreciate what mvp has done for the team, but wouldn't it be more appropriate if we revert back to the rp team... we've had more success with that name than we had since we started putting corporate names on our team's jersey... if we want to be nationalistic about it, let's use Koponang Pilipinas...
i know filipinos love basketball... we all adore the sport... it would mean a lot to go back to the olympics... but you see, one company can't have the sole responsibility in this endeavor... everyone who cares for the basketball program should help... imagine if san miguel corporation and mvp's companies can help each other, as well as the uytengsu's, the ayala's, the sy's, plus the government... forget about corporate pride... just for once, let filipino pride be on top of your priorities... its all for our country... hope we can make this a reality...
