So far as I know they r pretty similar, small and swift.
And I dont know anything about them,
Can anyone come up with a satisfactory answer and reason?

if you are talking about the current national teams of japan and the philippines,... my opinion is that:

Japan Advantages:
-they are a better shooting team
-better system and chemistry

Philippines Advantages:
-they are bigger than Japan,.avg height is 6'4 while Japan is 6'3
-better individual skills among most of the players

Disadvantages:
JPN- some players can be a liability defending some of the Filipinos who are good players in isolation plays... they need to play solid team defense and challenge the RP Team to take outside shots and guard the interior because the RP Team tends to like to penetrate,.....
PHI- in the Jones Cup,..they shown a system of a very exciting type of game..they are fast-paced team but their disadvantage against Japan is their inconsistency in defense specially defending the perimeter. They need to pass the ball better against this team and use their individual skills to the limits by playing a better system...

Result:
Can be down to the wire... the Japanese team can relax sometimes but they shown more consistency with their system in the Jones Cup,..while the RP Team can be shaky at times but still shown some brilliance at times....

When these 2 teams play in the 1st Round.. this can be the turning point in the positioning in the Group A...

The team that will play better that night with some showers of luck will win...

*it was based only on my opinion... peace guys....

*but historically,.../

The Philippines and Japan had a long way of history in the sport of Basketball...

,.....there are times that Philippines won,.. there are also time that Japan won.,.. so it was very unpredictable....

in the last fixture.. JAPAN defeated the Philippines 87-85....

Japan - Versatile(good example, the takeuchi twins), good shooters and heart... they never give up.

Philippines - Athletic, quick, and good defense.

RP can defend Jap shooters pretty well (look at the jones CUP, Orimo could not answer Jared Dillinger's defense). RP lacks stamina while the JAPS lungs are like machines.

But in terms on who I'll be supporting..... OF COURSE GO RP TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(anyway,(no offense) does Igarashi and Orimo look gay to you? JUst asking...)

It's a new gender breed in japan known as "Bishounen" Even the recent J-rockers, J-pop stars, celebrities, masked riders, ultramen and Sentai (Bioman, maskman) have that "effeminate pretty boy" look.
