    That's what the pooland tune up games for --to see if a player can add value to the team....unfortunately, Yeng wasted the opportunity to add Romeo and Blatche early so that he can see whether they can add value (expensive daw)

    Bobo talaga si Yeng --at least in the international competition

    China have 6'10 Michael Wang and 6'9 Kevin Zhang, Japan have 6'8 Yuta Watanabe and 6'9 Rui Hachimura while Philippines have 6'10 AJ Edu and 7'2 Kai Sotto. Wang, Zhang, Watanabe and Hachimura plays like a modern-day forward; good ball handler, can shoot from the three-point line, can penetrate and finish strong while in defense they can defend pick and roll, perimeter and inside the paint. For Edu and Kai they are more of a center but Edu can defend the pick and roll, inside the paint up to the 3-point line, it's his offense which needs improvement..

    that's an objective and accurate assessment.

    Arakji is getting better in the Chinese league.Hopefully we can get some relatively young players (Parks,CJ Perez,K.Ravena,Bolick) or our young players (De Liano etc.) better.

    The way the second unit of the Spurs with no real "stars" ( Mills, Bertans, Poetl, Benneli) or talented creators are outscoring oppoenents is an interesting aspect of how the game has evolved. (The Gasols who one would consdier still a good go to guy at the high post is no longer an analytically good approach) , I've witnessed a high school team associated with litterally upset one team after another based on an approach centered around transtion and agreesive defense. (spreading the court and shooting before defense get set)
    In the new year i ran scrimmage of young kids ( 16 year olds) play against a roster of 20 year olds who had reputations as good one on one scorers (malakas some in UAAP ), the result we blew out the other team.. how? Approach... but of course with getting players who are familiar with the style.

    CBA is a very soft league, but tons of money in it.

    Makoto Hiejima Leaves Australia's NBL team Brisbane Bullets


    Bullets assistant coach Mick Downer summed it up best.

    “Makoto didn’t receive a lot of playing time opportunities because of our depth and (it’s) such a tough league,” Downer told The Japan Times on Sunday. “I think if we won a lot early in the season and had some wiggle room to play him into the rotation, it may have worked out differently, but the league is so close.”

    Hiejima is set to play the rest of the season with the B. League title-contending Tochigi Brex, whom he joined in the summer, then bolted for Australia to play for the Bullets. The Brex assured Hiejima he was free to rejoin the team at any time.
