News are up in the air that our very own 16 years old 7'1" Behemoth youngster Kai Sotto is being considered by European teams, and US NCAA Division I teams.

Now there are news reports that he received a massive offer of $ 1Million in contract of 5 years to be trained there

But It seems for now he will opt to stay with his Ateneo Team in the UAAP.

What you guys think will he be the first Homegrown Filipino talent to ever make it in the NBA?

Or will he be the next Japeth, Kobe Paras, Ray ray Parks who all failed?

Only time will tell..

    But we have to consider what is good for him, kasi I think Japeth, Ray ray, Kobe all failed when they tried via US. No one tried out the Europe path...

    yang utang ng loob mentality ang sagabal sa progress ng basketball skills ng isang player at pagbibigay pride sa Pilipinas. kung may plan talaga ang MVP group na maging world class talent si Kai at ma-fulfill dream at first pure blooded pinoy sa NBA, hayaan nila si Kai magtrain sa Europe. yan naman talaga ang gusto ni coach Tab, problema nga lang under payroll din sya ni MVP kaya pati mentalidad ni CTB kinain na rin ng utang ng loob.

    Meanwhile,


    Ehingen Urspring (2006–2009)
    - Standhardinger started his professional career in the Erdgas Ehingen/Urspringschule in the ProA of 2. Basketball Bundesliga in 2006 (at the age of 16). He played for the Urspring until 2009.


    Mitteldeutscher BC (2014–2015)
    - Standhardinger signed a contract with Mitteldeutscher BC of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL).[11] In his first season, he was selected as a reserve for the BBL All-Star Game


    SC Rasta Vechta (2015–2017)
    -  On 2015, Standhardinger returned to ProA and signed with the SC Rasta Vechta during offseason where he won his first MVP award



    Bakit si CStan (6'8") na naglaro sa Europe at the age of 16 hindi na draft sa NBA???

    If he take the europe path, I think there is a posibility..

    sino ba mai-impress sa shooting ni CS? baka nga nung age 16 sya mas worst pa shooting form nya. lolz
  • incorruptibleincorruptible Kabarangay PEx Rookie ⭐
    CStan is said to be 6’8 but is really 6’5” in height. sabi nga sa basketball Height is might. Kai Sotto’s potential is off the roof. And that will be his main advantage lalo na if he really can gain more inches. 

    Isipin na lang ninyo sina Bradley ng Dallas dati na ban ban naman, or yung Muresan. 

    I think he has a shot pero di nya dapat sayangin. Tab  clearly has ulterior motives on wanting him to stay.

    Skill na kasi tinitignan ng scouts ng NBA ngayon. Kumbaga e dapat swiss knife ang set of skills ang tinitignan nila ngayon because NBA is evolving to position less basketball kaya if may player na can play multiple position meron talagang spot sa NBA.

    Ndi maganda review kay kai ng mga scouts dun sa latest fiba tournament nila.

    I think kai can do it. Pero hangat gawin itong celebrity.. susunod lang ito sa yapak ni teng o tiu.

    Dapat wala sa kanya ang limelight. Ganun kasi ang typical pinoy pag sikat.. kinakain
