coach ato was totally out-coached by coach reyes in tonight games.in todays game coact ato was like an amateur coach.he didnt even make any adjusment especially in 3rd quarter when tnt making thier offensive run.no defensive stops until tnt made a double digit.
mas lalo pang magiging complicated ang hatian ng minuto pag balik ni Marcio & Dhont kasi pwedeng mag slide si Marcio & Lutz sa small forward position.
Toroman joins Agustin on Petron bench
A familiar face was spotted on the bench of Petron Blaze during its game against Talk ĎN Text.
Rajko Toroman, consultant for all San Miguel Corporation-backed teams, sat on the bench Wednesday and was seen giving input to the coaching staff and players.
Petron coach Ato Agustin said Toromanís inclusion on Petronís bench was the decision of top management.
ďI was advised that he was asked by the management to join us on the bench,Ē said Agustin.
Toroman, the former coach of the SMART-Gilas national team, had already been sitting on the bench of the San Miguel Beermen in the ASEAN Basketball League. A member of the SMC coaching stable said that, at one point, it was Toroman who was drawing up plays for the Beermen.
On Wednesday, he was seen playing an active role on the bench, either by sharing thoughts with the coaches or calling players over to give instructions.
But whether Toromanís presence on the bench will affect the harmony among the members of the coaching staff or his active participation will be beneficial for the team remains to be seen.
They celebrated too early after nung dunk ni Basden, dun nag start ang rally ng TNT. Well sabi nga nila it's better to lose now than in the playoffs. Bawi nalang sa Alaska.
badtrip lang dahil talo pero make this lost a learning experience and hopefully makabawi sa nextgame.manood sana si coach ato ng nba lalo na dun sa series ng thunder at spurs baka makakuha sya ng idea on how to coach on different situations.ok na sana kaya lang kulang sa in-game adjustments
Ato is outcoached. He let JWash get heavy minutes and tried to get his groove, nasakripisyo ang teamwork at ang isang potential win. JWash was a sore thumb sa loob ng court, he is too lousy on the defense and too stubborn on the offense. Nawawala ang motion ng plays kapag nasa loob siya ng court. Kaunting fake, talon agad. He is too slow sa rotation sa defense. Stubborn pa at ayaw sumunod sa motion ng opensa. Tapos kapag timeouts, yung body language niya parang yung dati na naman na if things dont go his way, heavy legs na naman siya.
Mas maigi na ring natalo sila at this stage kesa sa latter part. This loss serves as a wake up call and a spanking in the puwet. They became too overconfident lalong lalo na si Ato. Hey, make the proper plays and do quick adjustments! This is a short conference, don't sacrifice team play for a player's groove to be back.
2-1. Six more games to go. Lets aim for one of the top two spots. We have a game on Sunday. Lets bounce back. Durugin natin ang Cebuana.
Ang ganda ng line-up(all-star.players) T A L O pa rin..coach ***** ang may problema.
napapansin ko lang kagabi, palaging napagiwanan si basden kina dillinger at harris sa depensa. hindi rin siya nag take over nung nag rally ang TNT. guys, feeling ko lang na parang magtatalo tayo sa playoffs kung si basden ang import. sana hindi magkakatotoo sinasabi ko.
To be specific, si JWash ang masama ang laro and yet Ato still stuck with him. Ill advised shots, defensive miscues and a body language that doesnt want to win. Para siyang pabigat kagabi sa totoo lang. Kapag timeouts, siya ang pinakamabagal pumunta sa huddle na parang tinatamad dahil hindi sumasang ayon sa kanya ang pagkakataon.
Marami ring coaching miscues si Ato. Letting Denok play more minutes kahit na nagkakalat na. Maganda hugot kay Lanete nung second quarter kaso hindi na binalik, sayang, he is a spark off the bench pa naman, yung hustle niya sa depensa nandun eh kahit na sabihin nating si Pamboy lang ang binabantayan niya, kita mo yung willingness niyang dumepensa. Then pinagsabay ni Ato si JWash at Arwind, kita kagabi, nung sabay yung dalawa, litong lito ang opensa kung kanino sa dalawa magbibigay ng play. Then hindi niya napaikot ng maayos ang frontline rotation. Sama na nga ng laro ni JWash, Arwind at Ildefonso tapos pagod na si Pena, hinid man lang binigyan ng enough playing time si Rob na alam naman natin na magana ang nilalaro kapag TNT ang kalaban.
As for Basden, he is the perfect import for the team. Walang sayang na kilos. He picks his spots well. He plays great defense, mapa-1-on-1 man. He plays the passing lane so well. Dumadami lang ang attempts niya kapag nagkakaroon ng lull sa scoring ang team at minsan napupuwersa siyang magbwakaw kasi wala ngang gustong tumira.
they had a chance to bury tnt hayy.. gotta bounce back next game
