    I expected JB at 4 anyways (he was a four in college, and has played both forward positions throughout his pro career). Let's see if he can help Kai out on defense. Last window, he couldn't help June Mar out on defense against Jordan and Lebanon.
    Kai is better defender than Junmar, better rim protector, and Kai will face smaller HK and Taiwan bigs… so no problem for now… the acid test will be against New Zealand in November…

        I think Japeth will play instead. Kai and Jb starts and Japeth and Tamayo/Malonzo as relievers.
        No word on Junmar's possible replacement?
        Or maybe coach Tim won't call for any replacement on Junmar anymore with our 1st game vs. Hong-Kong just 3 days away.
        "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

          Latest report mentioned the team will go with 11 players.

          Japeth replaces Edu with Junemar having no replacement.

          Doesn't really matter as CTC plays a 9-man rotation each game.

          Also, it's HK and Taiwan. We don’t need that many bigs. Just relievers for Kai. As long as JB32 is healthy, our offensive blueprint remains intact.

          Besides, we need to rely less on Junemar as he’s 34 already.

            - Carl
            - JB
            - Malonzo

            - CJ
            - Scottie

            Is Keith Datu ineligible? How about Luis Villegas? James Laput? Brandon Bates?

              pretty sure Datu, Villegas, and Laput are ineligible. not 100% sure with Bates i dont recall ever reading that he was. maybe someone else can confirm but he probably isnt.

                Yeah, we don't have any eligible competent FIBA bigs in thr PBA after June Mar and Japeth.

                If we want bigs, we need to get from the amateur ranks, and maybe Greg as a worst-case scenario.

                  Damn, PBA and SBP looking to insist a PBA-majority Gilas many in the PBA are either undersized, underskilled or ineligible. If you come to think of it, PBA also has shallow talent depth, if you take into consideration those three (undersized, underskilled, ineligible).

                  in the bigman position alone, PBA players will either be one of these.

                  - CS - ineligible
                  - Arana - undersized
                  - Datu - ineligible
                  - Villegas - ineligible
                  - Laput - ineligible
                  - Sangalang - undersized/underskilled
                  - Tautuaa - ineligible
                  - BGR - ineligible

                  • It is clear SMC/SBP just doesnt want to deal with certain players eg Balti and even Greg.

                    TC will try to rely on Kai primarily at C. Good as he has shown in the B league recently, we still have to see if Kai is up to the task of being our starting Fiba center. Kai also has injury history btw. What if our 3 Cs are injured? Let’s make Tamayo play C?

                    It’s still the start though. If Balti gets drafted in the PBa next season SMC/SBP will look like bigger asses if they dont include him.

                      Arana needs to learn how to defend in the perimeter, or at least be quick enough to defend FIBA fours. He was the NCAA DPOY in NCAA Season 97, but right now, he's exclusively a low-post center. If he doesn't improve his mobility, he'll be a right-handed version of Sangalang.

                      A big center next to him could have changed his trajectory earlier.

                        Tamayo will suddenly will have an injury,he certainly knew that he's not fit for the 5 spot in FIBA,he only wants the 3/4 position period.Let JB play the 5,at this time let him play and burn the candle faster so be it,he's an NP,if they play him hard and long,he won't have time to go anywhere else.

                          i'd rather Tamayo play 4/3 he's not a center

                            Yeah,that's more natural position,Japeth has to extend himself a little more one last time,as long as JB is rolling at 2/3 making the baskets,it won't be much of battle under the basket for the 4/5 players.
