how about Japeth Aguilar, JV Casio and Chris Lutz? they are already ripe by the time FIBA Asia comes..besides, thier experience with Smart Gilas is already a big plus factor as far as international play is concerned..as for the other PBA players being left out, Jarred Dillinger deserves a slot too! he can play a lot of positions with his size and athletic ability, and can match up with big guards in the region..just my two cents worth of thought, my way of helping form a competitive national team.

Japeth is a bit raw but got the height.
Chris is injured.
JV is good but point guard is our luxury position right now I guess.
Jared might be called up if the non-“MVP” teams will not cooperate.

ano ba naman tong pinagpipili ni chot reyes.masyadong malilit to sa international competition..naku naman!!!at bakit kasi si chot reyes ang coach e malamang sa kangkungan nanaman tayo pupulutin neto..wla naman akong masasabi sa talent ng mga player na yan e tlagang mgagaling rin nman sila, however when in comes to international competition height is very critical in every position dahil masyadong maliit ang roster na to compared to our competitors

recommended line up

C – Slaughter; Fajardo, Aguilar
PF – Douthit & 1 player at least above 6″8 in height & can play offense & defense inside
SF – Aguilar(can’t be a PF hindi kaya tumanggap ng malakas na banggaan ng katawan but he’s fast & very athletic, pede rin syang C na aabangan lang ang pag relis ng bola sa taas due to his ability to jump so high kaya nilagay ko rin sya sa C), De Ocampo, Williams, Santos
SG – Yap, Lassiter, David, Parks
PG – Casio, Parks (si Casio ang piniili ko sa point kasi may napatunayan na sya sa international competition kahit maliit sya pero kapag malaki masyado ang PG ng klaban & obvious na kinakain sya ng buhay d2 na pedeng irelyebo si Parks)

AttnCoach Chot Reyes: yan dapat ang bumubuo ng National Team mo..my great appreciation pag yan ang sinunod mo or at least kahit man lang yung front lines ang masunod mo
