    Whats there to feel sad/and blame YG about?! it is expected that RP to lose this game! and no matter what, this years NT already out-performed Chots team previously, you have to thank YG's low profile tactics that really work out for you, if not for his tactic, you might have lose that game against Taipei! the game was grueling till last one minute! Taipei did not expect 3's from your players, cuz YG made your players to look sucky at 3's during the Jones cup.

    As a 3rd party observer, I still think YG is a lot better than Chot, I said this after the Jone cup, and I'll say it again now.
    nah i dont think he surpassed chot"s team its just a good draw in the first round, just my 2 cents

    But I'm correct on the case that we sent an All-amateur team then. Those players you mentioned were still amateurs at that time.

    However, my logic is.... the RP team has improved either on our system of preparation or long-term plans every time we experienced setbacks in every international competition we joined since 1986. We made adjustments tournament after tournament..This is exactly what I want to emphasize.

    I just agreed to someone who posted this at page 37 by "TrueBluePinoy"

    There are some defeats more triumphant than victories - Michel de Montaigne

    I hope this is one of them
    We send an all amateur team composed mostly of the RPyouth team because at that time professionals are not yet allowed to play in the fiba sanction games. If im not mistaken the philippines is the first country to send an all pro team in a fiba sanction games because the USteam start sending their NBA players at the 1992 Barcelona olympics.

    I was also young at that time 2 years older than you but when it comes to the RPteam of basketball starting the 1985 JOnes cup, i still remember some of the important happenings.

    “Hindi ko na inaano ‘yun (mapasama sa pool) eh,” Santos said. “Kung susumahin mo ang buhay naming mga player, ‘san ba talaga ang first priority namin, ‘di ba? Ang first priority ko, dahil dito ko nakuha lahat ng kagandahan ng buhay ko at para sa pamilya ko, ang San Miguel. Alam naman ng lahat ‘yun. Ito ang dapat kong paglingkuran.”

    I think the PBA can still do this given the preparation..or better yet, integrate this in their calendar. we can beat Jordan at any given day just give us time to prepare..at least 1-2 years of solid international stints..imagine, a team that barely practice managed to lower down the lead to 10 points?

    Lets see if Jordan can beat Smart-Gilas after a year or so. Bubulagta yang si Rasheim Wright pag nagkataon..hahahaha!!

    di nya kakayanin ang face value ni Barroca!!!

    anyways, why go to a competition with a lot of excuses prepared?
    Smart Gilas is the right way to go, and not the way YG wants it to be.
    It's ironic to see limited efforts from players with maximum salary.
    I wish they would apply "sabermetrics" in those financially challenged PBA teams to acquire players who are value for their money.

    people people just accept the loss, they were the better team this time. A consolation would be our rankings would be higher this time and BAP will have no excuse for their mediocrity regarding our cellar dwelling world rankings.
    you know why I am happy

    2009-08-24 RP Loses to Jordan, 81-70

    'Statistics'
    * The final stats says it all: They shot better than us overall, while we shot miserably off the floor. They were 55% from the two-point area, to our 38%, and they were 32% from the three-point area, to our 26%. This reflects our problems on offense, and on defense against this team. They also had 11 more rebounds at 49 to 38.

    * The game was close in the first quarter, they only led by five, 22-17, with us with our three-point shots, and them with their offensive rebounding. The first quarter stats, though, showed the danger: They were shooting 69% from the two-point area, since they were shooting nearer the basket, and they had 7 more rebounds at 14, double that of ours. We only shot 38% from the two-point area, having trouble scoring on the inside because of their defense.

    * They started to pull away when their three-point shots started falling late in the second quarter, while ours turned sour, which was eventually going to happen. From a five point lead in the second quarter, this ballooned to twelve at the half,45-33. The Jordanians were still shooting very well at the two-point area at the half, 60% to our 33%. They also hit 35% of their three-point shots to our 29%, and had 11 more rebounds, 26 to 15.

    * They further increased their lead in the third quarter to 15 points, 67-52. They sort of relaxed, and we were able to cut the lead down to five midway thru the last quarter, before exerting back their strenght on the offensive boards, and making a couple of good penetrations to bring back the lead to double digits.

    'The Jordanian National Team'
    * Their big man Idais had a very quiet 18 points in the first half, six of them from the three-point area, the rest inside for high percentage shots. The other big man, Abbas had 9 rebounds at the half, also wrecking havoc inside. Idais eventually ended up with 20 points, while Abbas with 16 rebounds.

    * In the second half, Wright took over on offense, and scored most of his 21 points in that period.

    * For most of the game, the Jordanian's offensive rebounding was quite evident. They just seemed quicker to get to the ball. They were rotating very well on defense, we couldn't beat our man off the dribble, and even if we did, help defense was there. And when we kick the ball out, somebody was there back again. In terms of penetrations, I felt that was where Alapag or Barroca would've been able to help out. They were small, but nobody could keep up with them off the dribble, thus creating better situations for our team.

    'The RP National Team'

    * Again, just like in the Iran game, no other option for this team except to take potshots from the outside in the first half. Some drives, but nobody finishing. No post plays, or fastbreak opportunities. The situation improved in the third where we were able to get a couple of layups and fastbreak points in, but even then we still were relying mostly on the outside shot.

    * About the only player in the RP team with a notable performance in this game was Gabe Norwood, who hit a majority of is points in the fourth quarter, helping to cut down the Jordanian lead to five points. He also had a critical block shot, and two offensive boards in the last minutes of play for the team, but it all went for naught.

    * Again, just like the game against Iran, we never led except for the very first couple of minutes of the game. Once they got the lead, they never relinquished it, and the best we could come up with was to cut the lead down to five points.

    * But again, I am proud of what this team had done in this game. The never let the Jordanians out of arm's reach, and tried to make a run in the fourth quarter to cut down the lead. I think that was the best they could do, and then went for it.
