    Really excited on the upcoming world cup u19. I would like to see Kai's hardwork and how he will do with his newfound skills.

There are so many 6'8+ players now who are willing to adapt to the modern game yet these Jurassic coaches would rather let them stagnate.
    thats why we need more international coaches and trainers.

    Kai's soft touch on is jump shot and close to the basket shots are so pure. It is really hard to find big man with that kind of touch. Kai will be drafted in 2 or 3 years. His skill set is equal to most NBA centers right now.

    "Probably like a Dirk [Nowitzki], who can shoot it and space the floor,”

    “He can shoot the three ball so he’s really cool and different just because he’s 7 feet.”

    “He’s able to run the floor and shoot it, put it on the floor, he can do a lot so he’s just got to continue to work and he’s gonna get better,”
    “The sky is the limit for him.” - Collin Sexton

    Well Kai really worked on his shooting on a short span of time even though we some during the last UAAP juniors season when he shot 50% from the three point line.

    Don't just feed the troll guys, he's got a psychological stereotype of a kid who's gone through a rough childhood, just like those whose been bullied when he was young hence he's psychological status right now.He needs a psychological therapy more than this forum i suppose.

    Tamayo might have some say about it,specially if the boy gets a good look and get pick in a US Div1 school. Makes you wonder if Tamayo without advance training like Kai,can put Kai in check,if this kid gets further training and experience in the US he might give Kai a run for his money.

    Tamayo cannot stop kai. Kai simply does not have enough weight and power for a true center as he just turned 17 this month. Kai is too young for the u19 worlds actually; he belongs to a u17 team. There are very good reasons why fiba and other baller associations sort players by age groups like u14 to u19. The advantages of a future 7'3 vs a mere 6'7 who is slow and unathletic will be crushing once they are both in the 20s. Add in the fact that nobody outside the philippines is interested in an unathletic forward like tamayo, and the competition exposure gaps can never be closed. Even a thirdy or paras can easily stop a tamayo.

    Tamayo is not even a legit center. He may never even top a mere 6'8 center like baltazar. Once kai is 21, tamayo will be nothing more than an inconvenience; a puny sanggalang trying to contain a monster like fajardo in the shaded lane.

    So what's next? Tamayo is better than 15 year old and younger mason or cj amos?

    the reason why nu beat ateneo was because they were able to physical kai sotto by using a shorter but heavier 6'7 tamayo. watch the 1974 nba finals of boston celtics and milwaukee bucks. the 7'2 kareem abdul-jabbar, for all his length and talent, was beaten by a shorter but physical and equally talented 6'8-6'9 dave cowens in their defensive match up. that was the key to defeat bucks back then. this was the perfect analogy of how nu pulled off a defeat against ateneo.

    just like the 1974 cetics team with havlicek, cowens, nelson, jojo white, paul silas and paul westphal against bucks' abdul-jabbar and the old oscar robertson.

    They were simply the better team. But Kai was the best player in the league.

    And they said JF only started playing when his 17 y/o compared to Kai who was trained starting early childhood. Let's see if Kai deserves to be in the GOAT conversation.
