    POT 3: Puerto Rico, Finland, DR, Latvia
    POT 4: Georgia, Mexico, Croatia, New Zealand
    POT 5: Philippines, Lebanon, Angola, Ivory Coast
    POT 6: Bahamas, Egypt, Cameroon, Bahrain


    hey will be basically part of Asia/Oceania region… Atleast we will escape Bahamas already… Any group will be group with Bahamas will be consider as “group of death”….
    Interesting when you consider NZ chances, without Adams NZ has beaten every team in last 4 years in Pot 2 to Pot 5 . what it hasn't done recently is beaten a team in Pot 1 , ( Spain , Slovenia , Lithuania , Greece (but was close with Greece in 2019 and 2023) , so while an upset , if Adams plays NZ at least has a chance to upset and qualify

      Now and ever Gilas need a real pg,they might have to beg Bolic back,and maybe insert Remy Martin here and there,now that he have a Filipino passport,I would even put Abarrientos on the mix too,can't have enough high BBIQ pgs for sure.

        Guards: RJ (24 going 25), SJ (25), Bahay (19), Competente (19), Dwight (25 going 26), Bolick (28 going 29), Moore (20)
        Wings: Lopez (21), Harris (19), Belmonte (21), Navarro (27), Tuffin (27), Nacua (19 going 20)
        Tweeners: Tamayo (23), M. Amos (20), Konov (18 going 19), Pablo (20)
        Bigs: Kai (22), AJ (23), Kouame (26 going 27, NP), Gagate (20), Demisana (20)

        The PBA has too many older players who might not make as big a difference in this context, save for maybe June Mar. Might as well send the young guys for a learning experience. If Terrence is still dynamic, he should be included for upgrade in the guard spot, just have him supported by a competent defense.
        This is the 17-23 year old development batch that I've been harping about.

        Imagine starting this long-term development plan next year. Playing against world-level (not just asia) at a young age. Then fast forward 5-10 years of continuing this. That team will be cohesive and battle-tested AF.

          Just don't be group with Bahamas... Any group that will have Bahamas will be consider already "Group of death"... That will decrease the chances of winning of some contender countries...

            - Oftana

            - June Mar (with AJ around)
            - Kouame

            Who are not?

            - Lassiter (past his prime)
            - Ross (past his prime/ineligible)
            - Scottie (if you know, you know)
            - CJ (if you know, you know)
            - Tolentino (too d*mn slow to be a 3, too *ff*ng short to be a 4)
            - Japeth (past his prime)

            ​​​​​​Debatable?

            - Newsome
            - Alas
            Hope this can be taken into consideration by the OQT.

              With the success of the Asian Games stint, SBP may want to tap the core of the current Asian Games squad for familiarity assuming Tim Cone will be the coach.

                Asiad Core or just get the right piece.. Kouame isnt alocal so Aj Edu tyake his place Japeth with Kai Sotto.. as for others.. Oftana is a piece.. not teh best of it but can be our version of dobric or a Kalinic.

                Asian level is different in world level..
                To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..
                1 Big 4 small > 5 out offense.

                    The remainder are Scottie, Oftana, Newsome, June Mar, Brownlee (NP), and Perez.

                    I think Dwight Ramos could replace one of Oftana, Newsome, and CJ. Dwight's still an integral part of Gilas, as shown in the WC.

                      Ramos for Newsome… oftana is a vital in wing spot… Perez is a good back up pg… but we need longer preparation for this….

                          I think Matthew Wright should be given some considerations after the way he played in the B league last season, in some instances he was playing point guard and had decent shooting percentages.
                          お元気ですか?

                            he was great in the pba and sea games as well. he just refuses to shoot especially in crucial instances, even when he's open despite being the teams best shooter. even in the b,league, he'd lead his team in scoring/shooting and then pass up open shots in the 4th qtr in close games

                              If only Wright is 3 or 4 years younger, I would like to give him another chance. But he's 32 right now.

                                Guys, how do you assess Oftana's defense so far in the Asian Games?
