    Putting Kobe on top of the key in a 1-3-1 offensive setup somewhat hides his dribbling deficiency. They’ve (mostly Kobe) scored a lot and milked that play. Good job by the coaching staff.
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    Lol!

    Confidence lang sinasabi ko not granduer o sobrang kayabangan.

    Tiwala sa sarili= confidence. I like it that Kobe isn’t timid or easily gets intimidated.

    Can you give example sa game ba meron siyang illusion ng grandeur?

    All I see is he celebrating after a made dunk or 3. Right?

    I agree on the part that he needs to improve his skills to level up his game.

    Mas malakas UP once may Ricci at JGDL

    The coach knows how to utilize his players now. He exactly knows what they are capable of. I remember when coach bo told the team to minimize the help in the offense so they could make easy shots. Guess what...it worked!

    Sometimes, reading the defense helps to make the necessary adjustments, instead of relying to plays every time.

    A good coach is a proactive coach!

    Well done, UP!!!

    Kobe showing glimpse of his potential, the challenge is for him to have this intensity or "passion" in every game and that's offense and defensively. He has the tools athletically and height wise now he has to work on his attitude foremost, then his basketball IQ. Go back to basics Kobe, mix it with the effort you showed and you'll go far, walk the talk kid

    Ang lagay ba ay if one criticizes Kobe he will be labeled as "Kobe hater"?

    Then if that same guy praises or commends Kobe for doing well, he will be accused of flip flopping?

    Excellent drives to the basket right there.

    Excellent game by Kobe & perhaps a well-deserved MVP of the tournament award. Hope this is the start of good things to come for him.

    Kobe needs to find his inner Klay Thompson.If he shoots 43% in the 3 point arc and 48% or more on his field goal shots,he'll be invaluable. Klay is 39% (3pt pct.) and 42% (2pt pct.) in college but I guess we have to aim higher because he is playing in the local basketball scene.

    Sa tono lng naman cguro yan sir. Haters would be calling out the guy as if he can never change or improve. Statements like "he will never be good in fiba" or "bust nanyan kasi mayabang". Lets all try being hopeful and constructive.

    "Haters" are those who will never commend/praise or give credit to Kobe even if the kid will do good in the basketball court. Haters would just criticize a player for every wrong or shortcoming but will refuse to commend a player for every good thing or accomplishment he gets. Kumbaga, mga mali lang ang nakikita.

    Kobe is 6-foot-5/6-foot-6 while Ricci Rivero is what, 6-foot-2?

    A 6-foot-5 natural small forward is rare in Phi basketball while a 6-foot-2 shooting guard is very common.

    They are not comparable. With ricci, a team can win a lot of games as he is a good team player, but also has the unique skills to invent shots like the 3x3 playe he also is.

    Kobe is someone you take to punish or even demoralize the opposition. Only the nba-class pba imports can keep up with him around the rim. His father benjie also had this talent, which is unusual for locals.

    The maroons did the smart thing. They got both, the de lianos, and the crunch-time dangerous bisaya boys. The maroons therefore become very competitive in season82 because they can diversify their plays. This was impossible last year.
