    Was listening to the radio broadcast earlier before hearing mass and radio analyst Koy Banal informed the listeners that there was a foreigner player seated at the back of the TNT bench. Noel Zarate, the anchor, said that this was TNT's backup import just in case Josh Smith would not be able to recover from his injury in the Finals.

    Note that the formula for beating SMB in last year's Commissioner's Cup was designed by then ROS Coach Yeng Guiao when he brought in a mammoth 6'9 import named Pierre Henderson-Niles who, despite lacking in skills and offensive production, was able to neutralize Junemar Fajardo, leading to ROS' semifinals series victory against the Beermen. Of course, the difference was that their import back then, Tyler Wilkerson, played the forward position, while Charles Rhodes is more of a 5 and 4. Wilkerson was ably defended by Gabe Norwood last year so it remains to be seen if guys like Kelly Williams, Mo Tautuaa, RDO and Troy Rosario would be able to limit Rhodes' production.

    Should be a good series...

    Magandang panoorin to, puros talented ang line up, honestly nahirapan smb against tnt last phil cup.. but I still see smb winning this one, yung first 5 ng smb is just too much, talent+confidence is a deadly combination, and coach leo is really good in making adjustments sa series as well as knowing kung sino ang i mamatch kanino.. smb in 5

    If Smith could deliver the usual numbers and same minutes, TnT will give SMB a good fight.

    With Rhodes playing 4 and 5 position, TnT player here is Ranidel.

    with a healthy josh smith mapapalaban ang smb dito kaso with a different import and lack of familiarity this will be an easy win for Smb. Short series SMB in 5.

    Ang key lang dito para manalo ang TNT e palaruin lahat ng players - inis na inis ako sa Leo nayan hingal kabayo na yung Cabagnot mo at Ross ayaw mo pa labas, minsan lamang na ng 25 sa last 3 mins ayaw pa pahinga si Junmar. Kawawa ang player laspag na laspag, game 7 to sana magpaikot siya ng tao. Si Van Opstal kinuha para magpunas ng pawis ni Abai.

    Tapos nakuha pa yung RR at Semerad tapos kapalit ellis 2.0 na si Rosser na ewan ko ba ayaw palaruin si Rosser.

    Parang hindi step forward ginagwa ni Leo e parang winning mode lage na pag natalo e triple backward.

    Walang tiwala si leo sa bench nya. Wag lang matapat na may mainjured sa mga starters ni leo tapos na sya.

    Malaki kase pressure ni austria na hindi mapachampion ang smb. Pwede kase sya tanggalin anytime.

    ganito din naiisip ko. kung makakapag laro si Smith buong series may tulog ang SMB dito. di hamak na mas magaling si smith keysa kay henderson-niles, both offensive and defensively, at di hamak na mas malalim ang local talent ng TNT kumpara sa ros noon. So if magagawang e neutralize ni Smith si JUnmar yare SMB dito. kay junemar lang naman talaga kumukuha ng lakas ang SMB, alisin mo si junmar sigurado apektado buong laro ng SMB locals.

    isa pa, brownlee is more explossive compared to Rhodes. kung nagawa ng TNT na kontrolin ang pagdodominate ni brownlee hindi imposibly na magagawa din nilang e neutralize si rhodes.

    TNT in 6!

    magandang series ito, battle of the flagships ng dalawang conglomerate sa PBA. malaking PRIDE ang nakataya sa series na to, kung sino ang mananalo dito sigurado tiba-tiba ang players sa magiging incentives nila.

    mas memorable ang finals na ito kumpara sa mga nakaraang SMB-TNT rivalry. kasi nung mga nakaraang nag meet ang dalawang teams na to, wala pang sister teams ang TNT, wala pang intention si MVP noon na makipag brasohan sa SMC. ngayong nagkakabrasohan na ang dalawang magkaribal, siguradong magpapatayan yang mga players para sa kanilang PRIDE.

    Ang problema, mas athletic si rhodes at mas mataas.. Sinu itatatapat mo sa kanya? Hindi yan kakayanin ni semerald..

    And mukhang mas lumala yong injury ni smith, so kung yong replacement ang lalaro.. Yari na to lalo..

    Smb in 5..,swerte na ang tnt pag di ito nawalis.. (Unless) 100% si smith.

    Sayang gusro ko sana mgtapat si buchokoy at si abai. Siguradong salpukan un sa ilalim. Mukhang malaking mama din *** pamalit *** mahihirapan parin si jf itulak ito. Pero kung nakascore sya kay cardo im sure kaya din niya itong import ng tnt. Dapat makascore si Rhodes kay Kelly at Tautuaa. Si Ross din dpat on target.

    Pero alam ni Nash ang key sa SMB, gamitin ang bench at pagurin starters nila. Si Ross na ang pinakababad sa SMB. Im sure susubukan niya pagurin ito.

    Injured si MGR.

    Di hamak naman na mas malaking challenge si ratliffe kay junmar at sa smb kung nalagpasan nila yun 40 pt production at yun record na 35 rebounds eh mas kakayanin na nila yun replacement import nang TNT

    nalagpasan ni junmar si ratliffe with flying colors last conference starters lang pinanlaban ni coach leo sa mga tactical substitution ni nash kahit ilang tao na pinagpalit palit ni nash para bantayan si junmar wa epek pa din. si castro kayang kaya ineutralize ni ross at ang pinaka importante wala na yun dalawang smb killer nang TNT si alapag at si fonacier

    bali baligtarin man ang mundo nasa SMB pa din lahat nang advantage.

    I think SMB in 5.👍
  • Tnt in 4 or 5. Last meet up nung team wala pa si smith at si greene pa un. We'll greene exploded in that game where junemar didn't play coz of seaba. Pero tnt pilay ** nun without 3 of their main weapons.

    So tingin ko with smith (if ever na healthy) ay neutralize na si junemar. As good as rhodes is, i don't see anything spectacular sa import na to. Is he a great shooter? Post up player? Hindi ko gets *** laro nya at wala syang Go to move. I think Mo, kelly, troy and maybe even rdo and semerad can limit him by playing him physical... mabilis ** ma foul trouble si rhodes and mejo mainitin ulo na pwedeng makasira ng laro nya.... jayson can't be stopped. Ross will be shut down....

    I see TnT will start Smith and Tuatuaa at the same time to match up with JMF and Rhodes. But knowing Rhodes have a hot temper RDO/Williams/Rosario might alternating guarding him at alam mo naman magaling rin mag drama yung 2 so expect Rhodes to have a hard time.

    Castro vs Ross for sure, Pogoy/RR alternating guarding Cabaggie. The bench is almost the same, the problem is Leo don't trust his bench.

    Nope sweep yan SMB in 4 itaga mo sa bato ni.minsan di pa ako nagka mali. Pero kung medyo tatamarin ang SMB its SMB in 5. one game yan lang ang pweding ibigay ng SMB sa TNT. Taga mo sa bato boy! pero nyways okay lang naman may nakahandang dahilan naman ang TNT.
