    TNT's chances for getting playoffs in EASL is that they have to pray Anyang and Taipei will not reach 3 wins... Their only chance is to be tied with Anyang and Taipei both at 2-4 record... So far Anyang has good quotient than both TNT and Taipei...

    Anyang ( + 29 )
    TNT ( - 6 )
    Taipei ( - 23 )

    They need to pray Taipei beats Anyang at their home big time and TNT will beat Anyang big too to advance


    Meanwhile Meralco has very big chance, Just win all games then they can advance... As of now they are 1-2 and chances are big...
    Basically, TNT's EASL campaign is done. I don't think it's possible that Fubon (or TNT for that matter) beats Anyang.

    It's intriguing that both Rondae & Rahir are listed as 6-foot-6 yet it looks like Rahir is taller by about 2 inches than Rondae.

    Even without bigmen, it still worked out for TNT because they have the length.

    The usual pattern against Fubon was this:

    Rondae - 6'6
    Rahlir - 6'6
    MGR - 6'5
    Oftana - 6'5
    Aurin - 6'1

    Rondae - 6'6
    Rhalir - 6'6
    MGR - 6'5
    Oftana - 6'5
    Khobuntin - 6'3
    ​​​​​
    ​​​​​​Rondae/Rhalir - 6'6
    Ponferrada - 6'5
    MGR - 6'5
    Oftana - 6'5
    Khobuntin - 6'3

    Rondae/Rahlir - 6'6
    Ponferrada - 6'5
    MGR/Oftana - 6'5
    Khobuntin - 6'3
    Aurin - 6'1

    Rondae/Rahlir - 6'6
    MGR - 6'5
    Oftana - 6'5
    Khobuntin - 6'5
    Aurin - 6'1

    TNT rotated this way.

    Great win for TNT, and Josh coached a good game on defense (just defense, because their offense wasn't good). Forced a lot of turnovers, and Fubon were lackadaisical.

    And this was a team without Castro and Kelly. The Hollis-Jefferson brothers helped a ton.

    Japan and SoKor don't have guys like AJ, June Mar, Japeth, and Kai that have a decent combination of height and talent. SoKor has Kim Jong-kyu and Ha Yungi, but that's it for them when it comes to the center position.
    The reason why Japan and Korea hard time beating China and Iran... In FIBA setting, having a skilled big man has an advantage against smaller teams... Japan w/ Watanabe lose to Iran last year's FIBA Asia cup while Korea can't beat Iran anytime they face off.... And China has Japan numbers (4-0 in last FIBA qualifying windows) and Korea.... If Kai and AJ will improve their games in next 5 years, Gilas has a chance to be the best team in Asia (sans Australia)...

    And kim Jong-kyu is already 32

    I do agree lack of playing time can hurt development but I don't necessarily believe Japan's lack of an Asian big man is just because of opportunity, I think Japan's development has been different than some of the other countries, guys 6'8-9 with mobility and athleticism coming up seem to play center but also develop their perimeter skills which allows them to be more versatile forwards. Even coming up Akira Jacobs and Yuto kawashima for Japan are 6'8 center size for Asia but play more like forwards. Even from Kore​a, Yeo Jeon Seok 6'8 but more of a forward than a big. There are no local 6'8 players coming up that are like them. for Korea if I look at young centers coming up there is realistically only one that is Asian level potential and that Yungi ha.

    ​​​KBL do produce Asian level thats why they can compete with NZ and other countries. Japan dont even have an Asian Level center.

    I am just saying looking at B.league, having no opportunities for Centers will not bold well for them in the long run.
