    Parang Ganito mangyyari Sir JAy P,

    Let tab handle the NT basta wag ppakialaman un PBA. If thats the case then we should start forming, the younger, the better. parang NCC/ Gilas 1.0 nga. However if we pick college boys, mkkalaban mo dyan UAAP n NCAA. Klangan pa dyan pondohan mo pa. 
    Yes, that's a grim scenario, perhaps the most difficult roadblock. That wasn't much of a problem then as Caidic (UE), Lim (Letran), Jarencio (UST) and Codiñera (UE) were still active in the UAAP and NCAA. At that time, these players only needed to be with their teams from July to October. The rest of the year, they were relatively free except for their commercial team commitments (Caidic, Codinera and Jarencio played for Magnolia / Lagerlite while Lim suited up for Lhuillier). And since Danding was running the PABL back then, it wasn't difficult to get these players to play for NCC.

    Which was why Jacobs had to wait for Lim to finish his commitment with Letran before he formally joined NCC. College teams back then weren't as rigid as today when training is practically all year round. And since schools now heavily invest on their players, it would require a lot of negotiation to get the top players to commit. 

    But this wrinkle is easier to resolve compared to having PBA players and dealing with pro teams. Another task that the SBP can do is scour the country for talents, just like what the schools do. If UP, UE, AdU, UST, SBU, Letran, etc. can get raw talents from the provinces, why can't the SBP do the same when they have regional heads there? They can tap these players, still let them play for their schools, but with the condition of releasing them during international meets. So long as the SBP is a step ahead of these schools in farming these potential young players, then we will have a continuous pipeline of talents waiting....

    Its good if we develop or use the NCC or Gilas 1 route. pero pag may nakitang potential players ang mga pba teams, lligawan na yan. aalukan ng magandang kontrata. ayun, bback out at mag ppba nlang. lalo na un mga hirap sa buhay. 

    UAAP and NCAA is one road block also. actually they are the ones who are exploiting the talents. sila lang kumikita samantala mga players sa allowance lng umaasa.( Parang counterpart din ng US NCAA. NCAA earns and players just play. no wonder Zion just played 1 year.) ewan ko lang s mga well funded schools ah. tsaka tingnan mo at age 25 pde ka pang maglaro. Chris tiu once said Europeans, as early as age 17 eh naglalaro na sa pro league.

    Which is why my proposal is that all stakeholders should agree to this concession - that no one selected to be part of the national team pool would be enticed or considered for the PBA until after 2023. It won't be easy but in truth, you only have to worry about the SMC conglomerate. MPIC won't be a problem since they have the same boss as the SBP. So if SMC agrees to this, then it's all systems go. Everyone else will follow. 

    Ditto with the collegiate level. Since the top collegiate teams belong to the MPIC stable (ADMU and SBU), then you only have to worry about DLSU (bankrolled by ECJ). And if SMC will agree on this, DLSU will follow. 

    The other concern is financing. Don't expect that MPIC can afford to shell out salaries for the young players. OPEX would be significant, nothing short of like running a PBA team that could lead to around P80M annually. But if the SBP can marshal all the potential sponsors for Gilas 5.0 (or whatever iteration it may now be), say SMC, MPIC, the LT Group, the SM Group, the Jollibee Group, Ricky Razon's ICTSI, Andrew Tan, JG Summit, etc. - each shelling out P20M a year (loose change for them), plus financial assistance from the PSC, then that should resolve the financial issues. Personally, I really don't think this is a problem so long as everyone's on the same page and would agree to make a commitment for our national team in preparation for a grand performance in Manila on 2023. These sponsors would be treated as major sponsors for the FIBA WC that would give them extensive marketing exposure. For 4 years, that P80M spent by each tycoon would be a drop in the bucket - and an effective cost benefit approach in terms of brand marketing.

    The PBA also stands to benefit. Gilas would play as a guest team in import-laced conferences for the next 4 years just to keep them competitive and ensure they get to play together as a team. They fly to the Jones Cup, perhaps play in the ABL, they compete in the qualifiers, Asian Games, SEA Games, name it - they'll be there. And after 2023, when these players are already at the prime of their respective careers, they can join the PBA. Meantime, in the process, the program should continue churning out young talents to replace the ones that will eventually play in the PBA after 2023 for easier transition. Hence, even if we lose Sotto, Edu, Ildefonso, etc. to the PBA, there'll be other players ready to replace them by then....

    Nako. wag nlang if Guest team sa PBA. No need.llumpuhin lng ni guiao yan bcoz of his bitterness. remember the Gilas vs Burger king incident?  regarding the funding, sana nga. mangyari un. Dont ever ask PBA anything kahit singko or kahit sinong player. Jeez. Let that league rot.

    No matter what we say, Gilas would still need the PBA to prepare and keep them in shape. It's also an opportunity for them to learn the rudiments of the game - especially the "gulang" part. 

    Gilas would find itself searching for tournaments that will keep them competitive. The best way to do so is just let them play in the PBA with imports.

    Wala pa, pero kahit na anjan na sina Kai Sotto at AJ Edu, we still need a big man for naturalization. The most likely selection is Angelo Kouame of Ateneo, especially if Tab Baldwin is reappointed as head coach. Kouame is the type of player who doesn't need the ball in his hands to be effective so he'll be an asset. 

    No matter how good Kai and AJ turn out to be, their bodies won't yet be ready come 2023 when they'll only be 21-22 years old. Unless of course their training is expedited in the US (Toledo for Edu) or Europe (for Kai). If we saw our opponents in the World Cup, my worry is that Sotto and Edu will be pushed around (mama-main) by their counterparts. Best we still get someone big and since Tab's system doesn't really focus on one player, Kouame would be a perfect complement.

    Undoubtedly, we could have ended up with a 8-4 or 793 card in the FIBA qualifiers instead of a 7-5 record. Chot, for all his histrionics, is someone deeply knowledgeable of the game and continues to learn from others. He's just as good as Yeng when it comes to motivating players although their approaches are different. 

    In the World Cup, we could have beaten Angola easily with Chot there. Against Italy and Serbia, it may be a tad difficult but the scoreline would have been closer. And Chot has too much pride to go winless in a tournament so he would found ways to push the right buttons that would result to victories.

    Thing is, and this is the crux. Would Chot have the same luxury as Yeng in getting the top locals? Would Lassiter practice with the team? Or Slaughter?

    Kaya nga ang sa akin, get away with the politics in the PBA and just go back to the NCC / Gilas 1.0 format. Less politics, better SBP control, and Tab doesn't have to "please" the PBA everytime...

    The only time i will be convinced that our NT is ready to world challenge is by beating our neighbors.

    1. China- 2017 fiba asia cup was a fluke. Thats not their team A. The yardstick of Asia. 
    2. Korea - in 40 yrs after we beat them in Fiba asia 1973, i think we only won 3x. 2 of them sa jones cup and 1 in fiba asia 2013. In 2017 we got massacred. So technically Korean curse is still alive.
    3. Iran - of all the coaches only Tab was able to solve the Iran riddle. 
    4. Jordan - if im not mistaken Rasheim wright a, Dhagles and Zaid abbas begged off in 2013. If they played that time, it would be a different story. 
    5. lebanon - up and coming. Full of surprise.
    6. New Zealand - if australia is 2.0 , NZ is 1.0 yet we didnt beat them with a powerhouse lineupo coach Tab. This team is solid too.
    7. Japan - they are one of emerging asian countries and once u insert Hachimura and Watanabe in the line up, theyre deadly too. 

    Indeed a solid program with continuity and support. It will happen. For now, its just a dream

    Jay, usapang UAAP muna.

    After the game last Saturday, I spoke with some friends from UP and they told me that there are disgruntled stakeholders/alumni who are increasingly getting frustrated with Bo. You think he will still stay awhile?

    What can you say about the 1 and done/2 and done rules? Ako personally, hinde ako pabor sa 1 and done rule na yan. It diminishes the idea of school pride and school spirit, which is what the UAAP was basically all about.

    Did you see how Ivory Coast played? I was surprised hindi pa nila cinocall-up si Kouame then mababakuran na yun at hindi pwede i-naturalize. Or do they have a surplus of better bigs than him at this point?

    Also, what’s your take on this? Who’s gonna be the high quality basketball minds that we need to collaborate in the country now? I can only think of foreign coaches to be honest (Tab, Cone and Black)

    I think those who really know their basketball will end up getting frustrated with Bo's coaching. He really has a lineup teeming with talent but it's like Yeng Guiao handling the national team - relying on their individual skills more than team play. And we all know that a very good, well-coached team can easily toy around with such a roster.

    The sad part is that he'll probably stay awhile. Number one because he did something that no UP coach has done since 1986 - take the team to the Finals. But it has reached a tipping point - the Peter Principle actually - where he couldn't bring this team any further anymore, especially with Tab and ADMU around. And until Tab leaves the Eagles (or even Franz with AdU, Byrd of DLSU and Ayo of UST), we'll have to contend ourselves with "moral victories."

    Never in favor of 1 and done really. There have been cases in the past - if I'm not mistaken, even UP took advantage of such with Mike Vainio and Mike Gavino - two DLSU players who suited up for the Maroons when they took their Masters at State U. But this one has gotten worse - it's like every team is taking the short route just to derail another team to win championships. There's no attachment among the players with their schools, and no attachment with the fans on the players.

    They probably have no idea how good Kouame has become. Or perhaps, Kouame is doing well because he's being mentored well. For whatever reason, we have a chance of having him play for the country as a naturalized player (maybe even as a local since he's been here even before college) so I hope we won't waste this chance.

    Tab may have been referring to various high-quality minds not limited to coaching abilities alone. I think this would include various stakeholders putting their minds together and working as one to avoid what happened 4 years ago when Tab went loggerheads with some PBA owners. For coaching, I'm sure he's referring to Chot, Norman, Franz, Tim and Jong.

    Sir JPM got some questions too.

    Is will Gozum getting minutes already? d kaya mapanis to kay Bo Perasol? Sayang nsa 23 for 2023 pa nman. 

    Eversince Franz Pumaren transferred to Adamson, He hasnt reached the Finals. Sistema nya b may problema or sa recruits? Parang d nya madala un magic nya sa Falcons nest. 

    If there will be a team that will challenge ADMUs crown I believe its DLSU , UsT and Adamson. UP for me , its all hype. mkang ssabog to once they have a losing skid. Do u agree? Un DLSU na nakita natin nung sunday will be dangerous in the later stages of the tournament. nagulpi d gulat lng. 

    Whats happening to NU? They always get the blue chip rookies every year pero hirap to umangat. 

    Do u think Tab should go back to the NaTional  team?

    Do u think Tab should go back to the NaTional  team? 


    1.  Barely. He's been averaging less than 10 minutes a ballgame and he's turned out to be a bust....so far. Much of this is the no so ideal development program provided to him by Perasol. I don't know how far he'll go but I hope we get more from him especially since this is Bright Akhuetie's last year. I don't have any idea yet if we have an import in the pipeline to replace Bright but Gozum should at least provde a part of that need.

    2.  Adamson was struggling prior to Franz's arrival but they became part of the elite right after. I always felt the Falcons were due for a Finals seat last season. That was also Franz's third season, which, under normal circumstances, would be the final year of top-tier development program. That said, I don't think it's the system. If there's one coach that Tab has publicly expressed his admiration, it's Franz. The first two seasons he had to contend with ADMU and DLSU (with Ben Mbala). Last year, they had to experience the momentum onslaught of the Maroons - an aberration really because no one expected this to happen. My best guess is that AdU will snag the second Finals seat and face the Eagles. 

    3.  Yes, for a maroon-blooded guy like me, I won't expect much. The talents of the players haven't been maximized and there's an over-reliance on Jun Manzo who's an extremely erratic point guard. It speaks volumes of the quality of the team when you have a coach relying on a PG who can't control himself, much more, the game. DLSU will be a contender, and that's because I feel they have a solid coaching staff. 

    4.  NU is like a slightly better-coached version of UP that relies on individual skills more than team play. That would have been a huge victory for NU against the Falcons last Saturday except for that buzzer-beating trey by Lenda Douanga. The Bulldogs will only get better, and Dave Ildefonso will become one of the best forwards in the country, but winning a title may not happen now, with Tab around.

    5.  Yes...

    Pick your poison, 

     If you want support from the PBA, They will give u the best players but heres the condition:

    1.They choose the coach. Victolero, Austria and Tim Cone.
    2. You can never interfere with the schedule.
    3. This will only start training late 2022 or early 2023.
    4. Jones cup will only be your tune up games😂 for familiarity purposes

    If you want Tab?
    1. You cannot get our players - SMC 
    2. Your players are majority College boys or D league players. Plus a core of Tnt, Meralco and Nlex
    3. You can start now for 2023
    4.Your players can be wooed and be pirated by PBA teams by offering a guaranteed 3 yr contract
    5. you can train all year  as long as you want.  play pocket tournament overseas but Of course as long as u have budget.

    The only poison is selecting the first one. There's just no plus here. Sure, you can have the best players today to be made available for the national team on a seasonal basis, but by 2023, that all-amateur, collegiate team would be better in all facets of the international game than anyone the PBA can provide today. 

    Today, there's no one who's better than Junemar, Japeth, Marcio, or even CJ Perez. But if you get these amateurs to play together, Kai and AJ will be so special that we wouldn't have to rely on Fajardo anymore. If we wonder what kind of Blatche will be playing for us, we don't have to live with that unpredictability anymore if we have someone like Angelo Kouame (who is more muscular now, yet has remained athletic as ever). If Marcio and Perez are special today, imagine what the likes of Cansino, Ildefonso, Remy Martin, and 1GDL will be come 2023? 

    And yes, it will be costlier to have a cadet team. That means paying a 20-man pool easily P150k each to stay as amateurs, that's a cool P3M a month - just like running a PBA team already. But unless it's the Sy family who will bankroll the program, I don't think the SBP can get the funding from one entity alone. That's a cool P150M for 4 years, easy. But divide that into 4 enterprising sportsmen - like RSA, MVP, the Sys, and LT - that wouldn't really be much.

    I don't think it'll be feasible to get UAAP wards with at least 3 years eligibility. It'll be tough to convince team officials to loan their star players, especially the bigger programs. I think if they will commit to Gilas they'll have to leave the collegiate level totally. Sure a few communities will raise a fit but its for the flag then maybe they'd understand. Another way is getting players that have finished their eligiblity years with their schools. Tap the one and done players.

    Pick your poison, 

     If you want support from the PBA, They will give u the best players but heres the condition:

    1.They choose the coach. Victolero, Austria and Tim Cone.
    2. You can never interfere with the schedule.
    3. This will only start training late 2022 or early 2023.
    4. Jones cup will only be your tune up games😂 for familiarity purposes

    If you want Tab?
    1. You cannot get our players - SMC 
    2. Your players are majority College boys or D league players. Plus a core of Tnt, Meralco and Nlex
    3. You can start now for 2023
    4.Your players can be wooed and be pirated by PBA teams by offering a guaranteed 3 yr contract
    5. you can train all year  as long as you want.  play pocket tournament overseas but Of course as long as u have budget. 









    The only poison is selecting the first one. There's just no plus here. Sure, you can have the best players today to be made available for the national team on a seasonal basis, but by 2023, that all-amateur, collegiate team would be better in all facets of the international game than anyone the PBA can provide today. 

    Today, there's no one who's better than Junemar, Japeth, Marcio, or even CJ Perez. But if you get these amateurs to play together, Kai and AJ will be so special that we wouldn't have to rely on Fajardo anymore. If we wonder what kind of Blatche will be playing for us, we don't have to live with that unpredictability anymore if we have someone like Angelo Kouame (who is more muscular now, yet has remained athletic as ever). If Marcio and Perez are special today, imagine what the likes of Cansino, Ildefonso, Remy Martin, and 1GDL will be come 2023?

    If I were sbp, I will choose the cadet route and put Kai sotto as our main player.. he can be our haddadi (or better than him).. and also we need copy how Iran became successful in the last 12 yrs.. kailangan Meron Pg na laging magbibigay ng set plays Kay sotto..
