      And Oftana is a better defender. Troy could have been, but man, what a waste.

        If TC remains as the coach, what are the chances of Abarrientos, Bolick, Tamayo, and Baltazar being given a spot on the team?

          Baltazar, little chance. Bolick, I dunno, probably blacklisted. Cone has trained with Carl before, in the August window. As for RJ, I dunno.

          Maybe they'll go with veterans. Hopefully, the roster won't be too old. Continuity going to 2025 and 2027 is important.

            They are pros already. Maybe not in the PBA but pros in overseas. I hope that Tim Cone does not see them as rookies just because they are not PBA players.

              Oftana obviously has better handles than Troy which allows Oftana to play the 3 spot. Troy on the other hand is a natural 4.

              I think the same could be said about Jamie Malonzo who I think is more of a 4 than a 3. Oftana has better handles than Malonzo.
              "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

                I agree, Oftana has better handles. In addition, he moves naturally smooth which makes him a natural 3, unlike Troy who moves stiff.

                  I remember watching Troy Rosario during his NU days, he had the foot speed, athleticism and lateral movement to play the small forward position. I think he started out as a volleyball player and only started playing basketball late in his teenage years so his basketball basics wasnt that good at all. And once he got into the PBA TNT tried to make him into the second coming of RDO, limited him into being a spot up shooter and made him bulk up. Kinda a shame when you think about it he could have been a quicker and more athletic version of Justin Baltazar in the FIBA windows.

                    if 6'8 Carl Tamayo can sustain and still improve in the BLeague, then we may have found our starting SF.

                        high hopes for Carl Tamayo. huge upgrade for RR Pogoy's slot.

                        He's got the skillset and feel for the game. It's more of refinement of movement nalang at this point. Sometimes he still moves like a typical undersized Filipino center. If he can get lower to the ground consistently in-game (pretty sure he's working on this in practice), and get that explosive first step, our SF deficiency is taken care of already.

                        Tab knew this. We didn't have tall wings and so he initiated the transformation of Balti, Will Navarro and Carl from big to wing. They're still not polished though, but they still have time.

                        I don't know if Asia is ready for Balti, Navarro, Koon, Balungay, Tamayo, Quiambao and Amos at the 2 or 3 spot. From now on, Gilas should be constructed in a way that it can trade blows with Japan's Rui and Yuta. We badly need multiple 6'6- 6'8 guys who can bring down the ball, shoot off the dribble and drive with force and counters with it.

                              this makes the USA the odds on favorite to win the Gold, hope Jokic, Murray and Wiggins suit up for their respective countries to make the Olympics competitive. I hope also that Greece, Lithuania and Slovenia makes it out of the OQT

                                RSA was all praises for Gov Pineda in the Tunying interview. Balti has a chance it was just that Chot didnt included him in the list
