Chot slams Gilas door on Beast

Saw this article on Spin.ph about Calvin's spot probably being scratched off of Gilas pool.

My thing here is not about Chot's decision to "slam" the door on Calvin for Gilas. He's our country's best coach so in no way shape or form I can contest that. My thing is why people hating and trying to stop Calvin's so called antics, his trash-talking and his other gestures.

I mean, talk about embracing individuality and variety. Gusto ba nila all players play and behave like James Yap. We want some nasty (Gospel of Pop)! We need the Cardonas, the Ara?as, the Tubids, Abuevas and the Belgas.

Kapapanood ko lang din kasi nung docu ni Bobbito Garcia about basketball in NY's playground and how reaaaaalllly tough basketball is played there tapos ganto. Man up or shut up doon, pero di sila nagsusuntukan mas ginagalingan pa nila and mas nagpapalakas sila.
We're taking a step back with this kind of mentality. But no matter what I still love Pinoy Hoops! I just think we need to move forward from this attitude of softness kapag nasaktan and or pikon na gusto suntukan agad.

  • palagay ko dahil sa masyado ng maliit si Abueva sa position nya pagdating sa International Competition

    UNLESS 'The Beast' changes his ways, there simply is no room for Alaska sophomore Calvin Abueva and the "unnecessary" part of his game in the Gilas Pilipinas team bound for the World Cup in Spain and the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, national coach Chot Reyes said.

    Reyes had tried to secure Abueva's services for the Gilas team that competed in last year's Fiba Asia championships in Manila but apparently had a change of heart on a player after a tumultuous Alaska campaign that saw Abueva clash with opponents and get in trouble with league rules.

    "Isipin mo naman, dala mo ang bandila (sa international tournaments) ng Pilipinas tapos makikita ka dun nagkakain-subo (gesture) ka habang naglalaro ka," said the national coach, referring to the 'nganga' gesture 'The Beast' had time and again done during Alaska's playoff with Ginebra last week.

    "Tapos 'yung flopping, automatic technical sa international game 'yon. Ganoon din 'yung mga second motion. I feel the unnecessary part of his game will only get in the way (of the team). That's just my thinking," Reyes added.

    The five-time PBA Coach of the Year said he respects Abueva as a player - the reason he tried to get the former NCAA MVP for the Fiba-Asia team.

    "He's a good player, a great player, really," Reyes said. "Sayang s'ya. He can be an asset to the national team."

    However, Reyes pointed out that the nature of the international game leaves teams with little room to "mold" players during training camp, especially given the fact that Gilas faces a limited preparation time for the Fiba World Cup and the Asiad.

    "With Gilas, you need to get players of a certain standard already, because there simply is no time to mold them," Reyes said. "Once training camp begins, all you can do is prepare the team for the tournament."

    So unless Abueva changes, Reyes said the player that 'The Beast' is right now won't be an asset to the national team.

    "If he shows he's changed, then maybe (we can consider him in the future)," Reyes said. "But not in this Gilas team."

    baka daw sya pa pag mulan pa ng World War 3....hahahaha! nganga!
  • Nakakatawa tong si Chot hindi naman pacutan at pabaitan ang FIBa World.. yung Team US pa lang marami ng Dirty Player

    Sayo ang sisi ng Taong bayan pag natalo Gilas ng maaga

    Dapat walang discrimination Chot

    As far as sa PBA, kung may chance makuha yan ng TNT or any teams, sigurado kukunin yan.. He is too talented saka may potential pa yan to be a better player considering na magaling na sya ngayon.. Ganyan lang maka-asta yan dahil masyado passive yun mga team leaders dyan sa Alaska katulad ni Baguio and Thoss.. Si Espinas naman bulasabos did maglaro.. Eh kung maging teammate nyan si Jimmy, Carey sigurado hindi papasa yun antics nya dun..Titino yan dun at kung hindi may paglalagyan siya..


    As far as Gilas, hindi lang naman attitude ang problema nyan.. Wala syang outside shooting..Maraming beses na open sya dun sa Ginebra series pero pinasa pa rin nya.. Wala syang confidence sa outside shooting nya.. Maganda naman dribbling skils nya so pwede siya maglaro as SG, yun nga lang wala siyang tira sa labas.. Yun laro nya sa Alaska ngayon hindi uubra sa international competition...
  • I don't think his height was an issue. Everybody knows his game and his plays that led to won games negated the height issue. I don't mind letting the world see that we got some badass players to represent our country, we're not just some uptight asian people that stick to the rules.
    We got these guys that can play and win and yes they have attitudes too.

    Yung papi na nagbold ng mga lines sa article sa spin ang baduy brad, sana choir boys na lang padala natin. Di naman tinitignan image eh, ang goal eh bring the best of the best. It's just so happened that some of them got bad "antics".

    "Someone has to be. It might as well be me."

  • I agree with him not being on Gilas if it's about his game. My problem is just that hindi sya makuha dahil lang sa "antics" nya.

    About Espinas though, I think it's just a part of the game of basketball. Iba kasi talaga tingin nating mga Pinoy sa basketball. It's really rugged and rough kailangan natin i-embrace yan kesa kamuhian or katakutan.

    Papi, ni-bold ko lang para makita nyo yung sinabi ni coach Chot ng mas malinaw. Hindi ba tinitignan yung image? Pakicheck nga yung naka-highlight para mas mabasa mo ng mabute. Nasa ugali ni Abueva yung pagiging flopper at laging meron second motion. Ganyan ba ugali ng nasa Gilas ngayon?

    Ok paps, got your point kaya mo kay mo ginawang bold. Peace tayo. hehe. Yung sa ugali ng Gilas, again yung mindset na pa good boy dyan tayo lugi eh. Kulang sa anghang at nastiness eh, not just talking about being brash and nanakit. Yung tipo na mala KG, Barkley, Detroit of the 80's.

    FYI, umasta ng ganyan yung US team, ano napala? Bokya. Kihiyahiyang Silver. Nung naglaro sila ng may galang, dun sila nakabawi sa International games.
  • NGANGA!!!!!


    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!...

    YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO OUR FLAG AND COUNTRY!!!

    heheheheheheh!...

    I don't think that's the case. The world caught up with them, they didn't realize na kamatch na nila ang ibang countries until nagtatalo na sila. They respected their opponents but again yung "angas" nila anduna pa if not nadagdagan . They also adjusted their preparation for Int'l matches.
    Again mga paps, di masama yun mas makakadagdag. Mas nakakadag drive sya, push you better to prove na you can back up your talk.
    Hell even the Euro guys, Hedo, Dirk. Talk smack and do those "angas" moves.

    Hindi pwede si James sa Gilas, hindi na sya magaling tulad dati.

    Kung ikukumpara si Ping kay Calvin, malayong malayo silang dalawa. Hindi kelangan ni Ping maniko, mangpatid, magflop para makapasok sa Gilas. Ilan ba mga nakaaway ni Ping this conference including sa pre-season games? Ilan ba binanatan ni Calvin this conference including pre-season games? Kaya nga binabanatan din yan eh. Baka nga kahit mag-chess yan eh banatan nya yung kalaro nya :naughty:

    *okay* *okay* *okay*

    iba yung pagpapakita ng toughness at yung pagpapakita ng pagiging rude. yung kay abueva parang rude na. pagnagganyan yan sa intl b-ball pangit pa magiging tingin sa atin ng mga kalaban. yung luthuania at ibang euro teams di naman nag-aastang may sinusubo pag naglalaro pero respetado

    I like both of them guys paps. I'll take them any given day cause they got heart, and play with their cojones. I'll take the 2 of them any given day, even for Japeth and Slaughter.
    But about Ping though, I don't know if he has done some "things" as of late. Hmmm, maybe Kelly Nabong knows.*peace*

    So, palitan na ang coach! :D
  • Come on man! It's our generation on the line here.! haha. Lagi na lang sinasabi ng mga tito, kuya, tatay natin na lumambot na mga players ngayon. Nung araw walang ganyan na susumbong kapag sinaktan. Iiyak kapag inasar.

    Do you guys know the guy by the name of Sonny Jaworski. That dude is a legend. And we love him because he won with his, heart, passion and borderline thuggery, haha, boy did he use siko, cobra-like karate strike sa bodega, sapak(refs even) and sipa and tell you to play chess afterwards. And man, antics-wise I think he'll school Abueva, Cardona in that subject.

    You also might want to check the guy named Kevin Garnett. That guy will even use Honey-nut cheerios just to win.
  • Of course not, like I'm not knocking the great Chot for not including him. I just got a problem with the powers at be knocking the style of play nung energy guys and the "antics" that come along with it not just Abueva, but other players too like Tubid, Mark Yee, etc.
