    Future Big Man...

    Rabeh Al-Husseini 6'7" - What a season for him,very impressive, hope he develops more his foot work, jump shots, dribbling mobility and conditioning.

    Gregory Slaughter 6'11" - Hope he improve more in his conditioning, post moves, foot work and dribbling skills. Get some exposures, play in PBL at lease. Add more muscle too.

    Junmar Fajardo 6'8" - Scores triple double (points, rebounds and blocks), improve more his post moves, jump shots, dribble, add more muscle and compete in PBL and other college schools in manila

    Jason Ballesteros 6'7" - Add MORE muscle, develop post moves and dribbling skills.

    Norbert Torres 6'7" (17 yrs.old) - Hope you still grow up to 6'10" or 6'11".

    Gian Chui 6'10" - Absorb all the training there in the US, but bring your A-game here. Be more mobile, develop strong post moves.

    Japeth Aguilar 6'10" - Drink more milk so you have healthy bones, so you won't get injured all the time. you make us excited for nothing.

    Project Bravo 6'8" of CESAFI I don't know if this is true" with Dirk style of playing...

    I wouldnt count out Jervy "the monster" Cruz, of all the names you mentioned here he's the only one who have gone against a real giant (the 6'10 import of the Slingers). Well I wouldn't discredit Japeth but for now I'd say give him more minutes for me to be eligible to be included in this so-called prestigious list of quality frontliners of the RPNT.
    you know why I am happy

    Thanks for adding Jervy Cruz on the lists, and he is one of the most underrated player in this forum.

    i would include him at the "future wingmen of philippine basketball" because of his height.

    a "big man" should be at least 6'7"

    Charles Barkley was the best player of Team USA in the 1992 and 1996 Olympics, but he admitted that he was 6'4".

    I think it's impressive for a guy that is generously listed at 6'5" in the UAAP to averaged 12 or more rebounds per game because rebounding is not about height, it's all about timing, and having a longer wingspan than some of big men prospect in the UAAP.

    it doesnt matter what your height is, its how you play and how you succeed in playing that position.

    japeth will be healthy this coming season. he suffered a freak injury last season. we hope it'll not happen again. i think Japeth will be the starting Center for WKU next season.

    so, cruz and barkley have the same height?

    barkley is effective because he is quick and has range for his size. so he's not necessarily a traditional PF. he's more like a bulky SF.

    maybe. but jervy cruz is a big man by RP standards only.

    jervy cruz is a low post player (and an effective one at that)
    but he is not a "big man", let's make it clear...

    (or maybe a "big man" horizontally )
