    I completely agree with you. Do you know who the youngest players in the ABL are? I know its quite a competitively league around Southeast Asia, but we have 18 year olds competing in the NBA LOL! So crazy if you think about it!

    Hahaha, yep that's my blog. Glad to know there are people that actually read those.
    And yes, I myself am thai but I grew up in the States so I picked up the passion for bball and it kind of stuck with me...even if not that many people here are into it. (Sadly)

    ABL games will be broadcasted on Youtube as they have been for the past 2-3 seasons unless something goes horribly wrong. Just search up ASEAN Basketball League on youtube and watch some games as appetizer before the league kicks of at the end of October lol.

    As for the youngest players...last year, the KL Dragons had a local, Yi Hou, who should be 18 if I am correct and he was a pretty good shooter. Played really limited minutes though.
    It's pretty rare to see players younger than 20 playing decent minutes in the ABL.

    Singapore's center Delvin Goh who also played in this year's Fiba Asia is only 20. Russel Low another SG Center/PF is also pretty young at 22.

    Anyway, by any chance do you have all the team's rosters (With imports)?

    I don't expect any of the team rosters to be solidified until about 15 weeks before gameday, so we just have to hang in there an speculate but here are the signings we have so far

    KL Dragons: Justin Brickman (ASEAN), Matthew Wright (ASEAN), Calvin Godfrey (World)
    Singapore: Xavier Alexander (World)
    Saigon: David Arnold (ASEAN)
    Hitech: Chris Charles (World), Steve Thomas (World)
    Mono: Anthony McClain (World)
    Aguilas: Jamar Warren (World/Unofficial Announcement)

    Hitech will be pretty much returning all locals except Montien Wongsawangtham (waived) and Wattana Suttisin (injury). Expect a couple of 20 year olds to fill in for a youth transition.
    Mono will be fielding 5 Thai SEA Games players (Ratdech Kruatiwa, Nattakarn Meungboon, Kannut Samerjai, Chanachon Klahan, and Darongphun Apiromwilaichai).
    KL will losing Oi Ban Sin, John Ng, and Wong Wee Seng to retirement and Loh Shee Fai to injury. So that's going to be a roster overhaul. Keuk Tian Yuan, Kwann Yoong Jing, and Tong Wen Keong are the biggest returnees.
    From what I've heard, Singapore could be missing out Larry Liew and Wu Qing De to national Services (not confirmed) but the other guys should all be back. Looking forward to if Leon Kwek, a nice looking 20 year old prospect, gets the call up
    Saigon is getting a local overhaul as well. They'll be adding a number of SEA Games player (most notably Hanh Minh Trieu), but most of the locals last year will be gone.

    I have absolutely nothing on Aguilas except the speculations of who is making the roster (Rudy Lingannay? Willie Miller?).

    Exactly one more month to go.

    singapore will be very competitive this season as they are basically the National Team with imports. with the experience they gained from FIBA Asia they will surely compete.

    I heard they are going to be without Larry Lieu (National Service) and Russel Low (Preparation for University), so that is two VERY huge blows. The development of Delvin Goh will be more intriguing though, now that the team can't depend on Low to pick up his slack.

    Would be more interesting if it was a player who played in more than two games, but it's still representing. Go Dijon!

    KL Dragons: Justin Brickman (ASEAN), Matthew Wright (ASEAN), Calvin Godfrey (World), Reggie Johnson (World)
    Singapore: Xavier Alexander (World), Justin Howard (World), Kris Rosales (ASEAN)
    Saigon: David Arnold (Heritage), Moses Morgan (ASEAN/World?), Lenny Daniel (World), Stefan Nguyen (Heritage?)
    Hitech: Chris Charles (World), Steve Thomas (World), Tyler Lamb (Heritage), Freddie Goldstein (Heritage)
    Mono: Anthony McClain (World), Quincy Okolie (World)
    Aguilas: AZ Reid (World), Charles Mammie (World), Jerramy King (Heritage?), Ali Austria (Heritage?)

    Updated the imports list guys. Those in question marks are the ones that I'm not sure about their quota status...but it seems pretty much confirmed for the imports to be like this for opening day. Local rosters are still pretty hard to keep track of.

    55 JUSTIN HOWARD C 33 211cm | 6'11" 125kgs | 275lbs USA

    Pilipinas Aguilas 2015-16 Roster:

    SF Philippines Acua, Val 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) 180 lb (82 kg) 28 – 24 November 1986
    PG Philippines Austria, Ali 5 ft 11 in (1.80 m) 175 lb (79 kg) 24 – 7 December 1990
    PG Philippines Elorde, Nico 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m) 155 lb (70 kg) 24 – 4 October 1991
    G Philippines King, Jerramy 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m) 165 lb (75 kg) 25 – 26 September 1990
    C Sierra Leone Mammie, Charles (I) 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m) 250 lb (110 kg) – November 1992
    G Philippines Miller, Willie 5 ft 11 in (1.80 m) 200 lb (91 kg) 38 – 13 July 1977
    SF Philippines Najorda, Leo 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) 190 lb (86 kg) 33 – 16 February 1982

    F Philippines Salvador, Jondan 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) 210 lb (95 kg) 35 – 12 October 1980
    F/C Philippines Sharma, Carlo 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m) 236 lb (107 kg) 35 – 20 September 1980

    Comments: Slingers looks weak with depature of Larry Liew (Work commitments) and Russel Low (Studies), 2 of the top players gone. Also, the average age of the players are very young, so expect a lot of inexperience rookie mistakes. Wei Long should look to take the leadership role being awarded the 2014 ABL MVP and also performing well in this year's FIBA Asia. This could be a breakout year for Delvin Goh with more minutes and added experience in international play. Imports Justin Howard (Returnee) and Xavier Alexander (D-League Vet) should bolster the firepower and another interesting prospect is Kris Rosales a 6'0 fil-am guard that attracted some NBA scouts.

    Pilipinas Aguilas is a strong championship contender with a team of PBA vets and college standouts, most notably Willie Miller a 2-time PBA MVP. AZ Reid,a 2 times PBA best import should also be another leader of this team. The pinoy's famous physical game and experience should give Hi-Tech a run for their money this year.

    That Philippines roster is interestingly not that big. I'll take your word for it that it is final. Aguilas will have the only roster that doesn't have a player taller than 6'7. Interesting indeed.

    6'5 AZ Reid plays bigger than his height, he just recently won a championship with the San Miguel Beermen in the PBA in the Governors Cup while 6'7 Charles Mammie is a recently graduated college player here in the philippines. He played in the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UUAP) here which is basically our version of the US' NCAA, but since foreign players of no filipino lineage aren't allowed to get drafted in the PBA he opted to join the Pilipinas Aguilas. I really love the idea of the ABL been watching it since 2013 when Asi won his championship with San Migeul too bad after the team folded there was no more ABL broadcaster here in the Philippines so I haven't been able to watch any games since

    Reid is a natural post player whose a scorer thats why as he matures the three pointer become his arsenal but his back to the basket game is exceptional given he moves like a wing man..
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    i suppose he is, a crazy thai baskeball fanatic and basketball in general, he is even well aware of the philippine basketball scene, i suppose he's been trolling for years already, pinoys should beware if thai basketball becomes big because of his "crusades"
