Let's talk about basketball outside our borders.. :D

We're all hands down RP NT fans here, as well as the bragsters and except for the haters. :D

Let's see how other Arab NT's, Mid-Asian NT's, East Asian NT's looks like in the perspective of a Filipino. :)

I like Jordan because of the NAME and their coach.

Also Korea, has better shooters than RP without the rainman.

right now in the Jones Cup, as far as my two eyes are concerned, RP shoots better than Korea..it's only Kim Wong-Doo who is consistently hitting beyond the arc for the Korean NT.

everybody in the Korea NT does.. :D even Japanese and the Filipinos are doin those Ray Allen-range shots and it's hell of a shot but it works..hmm..I wish I could show you some vid clips of that Kim Wong-Doo guy.. :) what's amazing about him is he's emotionless when he shoots those treys. try downloading Sopcast so you could watch ESPN Sports online.

i like Japan but not their NT... those University players that beaten the RP5 got some balls man... i think they are a pretty strong team 3 years from now... even if we say its only a practice game on our part, even if Coach Chot keeps on shuffling players, and even if we beat them black and blue the next time we meet, the fact that they beaten us one time says a lot! i would love our SEA games bound RP team play against them... should be one hell of a ballgame! :D

My second team from Asia after the Philippine National Team is Lebanon.. why? ...hhmmmm?... maybe because they have one of the best player in the region... and the current events right now in their country... this team deserve to be in the Top2-3 in Asia...

Team Philippines
Team USA
New Zealand Tall Blacks

Lest a Thai basketball fan reads this, I'm talking about basketball only. Because in every other way, I admit that Thailand is better than the Philippines.

Although Thailand, together with the rest of SE Asia, is probably a decade away from catching up with the Philippines in basketball, it is actually making strides. They have a couple of Thai-American NCAA players in the making, and maybe more coming.

Actually you're right... but in terms of basketball - we can easily beat the shit out of them... in terms of boxing - pretty much even... in terms of billiard/pool - we can easily beat them... other sports... hmmmm? ... Thailand probably got the upper hand...

oh really?
I thought those Thai-Americans from the NCAA were only rumors prior to the SEABA early this year?

btw, they're already left behind also by SEABA runner-up Indonesia and former SEABA Champion Malaysia..Thailand hosted the SEABA event but unfortunately sanked in the standings.. :(

That's correct. But when I said, "in every other way," I wasn't referring only to sports (which is our topic here), but more in politics and economics. But yes, Thailand (and Vietnam) are the Philippines' big rivals in SE Asian sports.

why not include Malaysia? they too are strong competitors in the SEA Games. :D

btw, back to the NT's,

I wonder how the China B team , Syria NT and the true Japan NT looks like, or how do they play..we've seen the other teams in the Jones Cup, and these teams are still under the radar of the Filipino fans. :D

Yeah, I like Khatib too. But we're talking of Asian team here. So I go for Kazakhstan. Im not actually wary with our chances against Iran, Jordan or even China team b, but meeting Kazakhstan early on the quarter finals or on Semis makes me nervous.

makes me wonder bro, what's with Kazakhstan that made you nervous?

my opinion about their NT because I've seen their NT play in the Jones Cup, I don't know if there players still hidden, but as far as my two eyes are concerned, its a team being carried by a 19-year old Anton Ponomarev, and that's the Kazakhstan NT story. no other dimension on their game.

I fear them in the next Qualifiers wherein they'll be more matured because aside from Anton Ponomarev, there are other youngsters too.

I love the South Korean basketball program. They are the blueprint on how to be an effective little team among the 7 foot giants of international basketball.

The 2nd half of their game vresus CTaipei showed how great they are at playing "smallball". They were always pushing the ball hard, they moved the ball around so well, they were well spaced on offense, they work for the whole 24 seconds to get their teammates a wide open shot and of course they could hit 30 foot jumpers with consistency.

It was so inspiring to watch pure fundamental basketball like that.

After watching the Jones cup, Fadi Al Khatib and Joe Vogel of Lebanon are now my idols.. Haha.. And Tseng Wen Din, Wu and the Chien guy (their superstar that hits from beyond the arc excellently, their MVP, and the one that has a scoring duel against marc caguioa) I forgot his name, all of those from Chinese Taipei.. And for South Korea I forgot of their names ( their 6'10 forward/center I think, and the one that killed us during the 02 Busan asian games), and Bang sun Yun.. haha.. I'm having a hard time remembering their names..

I remember, even Mike Cortez did a toe-to-toe game against RP team when the Alaska and RP team met in the finals of the Brunei Cup, 2 years ago if I'm not mistaken. :)

Hmm, because kazakhstan had always been the KONTRAPELO team of RP. Also with Japan, although we can beat them, the game is always close and tough.

1. Kazakhstan- game against our RP in Jones Cup jus said it all! of all asian teams, this is the team i want most to be beaten by us.
2. Taipei- i love their ball movement. even better than us. also improved 3pt skills.
3. South Korea- a well balanced team. theyre a threat both inside and outside.
4. Lebanon- theres a rivalry between their team and ours. Khatib is indeed a good player.
