    6'5 Tim Habelito drafted by TnT plays in TBL although went to uni in Australia. I'd say Ken Tuffin, Pat Maagdenberg and maybe Richie Rodger will join that list sooner or later. Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and now Otago players(27 yr olds) have started to go home just to try their luck in the PBA always going home undrafted. Lack of support from NZ-PH basketball association has been a big part of that. They don't know that you have to market yourself in Dleague first or other commercial leagues. Nothing like USA's Tumakbo Family where they lineup Dleague and MPBL teams you could play for and actually take care of you.

    It's ironic that given all the years that all these different Pinoy associations existed, it's only now when I got involved that these players are being introduced to the local scene. The 3 you mentioned..

    Is Taine better than Aaron? It looks like Aaron is prioritizing his modeling career than playing basketball. Ricci 2.0 from Team B nga lang haha.
