    I think I have the oldest account here. I was a regular poster before but now I am contented with lurking and reading discussions.

    If my memory is right, 2007 is also the year that the FIBA ban was lifted.

    At that time we just thought that our players playing against World caliber and NBA players are just a dream but it did really happen and hopefully we will do again.

    Sorry, but for old timers like myself, it wasn't a dream, we've seen it with our own eyes.

    Have we had a Douthit or a Blatche to go with an Aguilar and a JuneMar with the likes of Fernandez, Jaworski, Atoy Co, and etc... we could have kicked major butts then.

    So, I always believed, I never had the need to dream for it.

    Namamangha aka pogi. Rumored to be Noli Eala. Others thought it was Bernie Atienza.

    Relative to a lot of you here, I'm a rookie, joined in 2011. I've never really been apologetic of my true roots as a mere fan. Time and time again I've been asked by basketball household names (e.g. Chot, Tab, MVP , coach E. Gilas players (seriously all of them) . " How did you get involved in basketball? " my reply sir / coach honestly I'm just a fan. These days when I'm introduced in to someone else (e.g coaching staff) in the presence of these "big names", and I give that reply " I'm just a fan" . These prominent figures will rebuke me and say something like- that's not true or your selling self short. I don't argue with them. but that's really how I feel about things , I really identify naturally to my roots as a fan. 2017 if I'm correct is my 5th straight year with being involved in one capacity or another with the Gilas national team. Last month in a discussion with one of their managers , he said , dapat honorary member ka na ng Gilas or the SBP. I just laughed and replied it's just been a thrill and a dream for me as a mere fan to be involved. The official rebuked me again for the fan statement.

    yes analyzed05 in the PBA forum was me. Wow how things have changed, those days practically no Pinoy player had experience playing against an NBA player.

    the mere fact the PBA forum is no longer existing (probably all the international talk made the name of the forum not a good fit) says a lot about how things changed. I mean seriously you can't be in a PBA forum and blast the PBA for not lending players and support.

    Yeah we were all frustrated with the hugot 2 week preparation at the time, all good now, easier to accept now

    we've all grown up and matured I guess, I remember in 1994 Qunito Henson confronted Norman Black after losing in Asiad questioning his decision making , Norman was furious like eh I just had 2 weeks ! Yes those were frustrating times
