    It's ironic to see limited efforts from players with maximum salary.
    I wish they would apply "sabermetrics" in those financially challenged PBA teams to acquire players who are value for their money.

    I voted for Jordan..but I don't expect any team to dominate this group with a 3-0 record. I predict this group will have the top two teams at 2-1. hopefully RP NT get past this group of death

    This bracket is really the most unpredictable one

    Imagine the expected top team can be the expected bottom team as well..

    this is an unfair group...

    RP seeding was based on previous asian championships... seeding does not necessarily reflect its strength

    iran and jordan placed 6th and 7th in Fiba-asia 2005. they should have been separated

    china should dominate this group - if their A team will play. however, since its only their team B, the rest of group A has an equal chance.

    RP ready to rumble:
    Reyes: RP ready to take all comers in Olympic qualifier
    By NELSON BELTRAN
    The Philippine Star

    With many lessons learned in two tournaments the last 14 days, the SMC-Philippine five has metamorphosed into a highly competitive squad that could well give any team a run for its money in the coming FIBA-Asia Olympic qualifier in Tokushima, Japan.

    RP team coach Chot Reyes made that assessment as the Nationals completed a tough two-week grind capped by their triumphant finish in the Smart Four-Nation Manila Invitational Championship Sunday night at the Araneta Coliseum.

    “From March to today, the difference was like night and day. The team has grown into a different creature,” said Reyes, moments after the RP squad conquered Lebanon, 87-81, for the crown in the pocket tourney also participated in by China and Syria.

    Syria showed up China, 90-85, for third place in the tourney organized by the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas and sponsored by Nike, Gatorade, Victory Liner, Casino Alcohol and Omega Pain Killer.

    Jimmy Alapag scored 16 of his 23 points in the second quarter while Mark Caguioa made 13 of his 19 points in the final period as the Nationals repeated their 88-83 win over the Lebanese Thursday for the championship that further underscored the team’s readiness for the Tokushima joust from July 28-Aug. 5.

    The RP squad will play Kuwait in two tune-up games Friday and Saturday before leaving for Japan on July 25.

    “We now have the game to compete in Japan. But can we win it? That I don’t know

    because that’s a confluence of good game and good fortune. At least, we have taken care of 50 percent of the equation. Now we only hope for good stroke of fortune,” said Reyes.

    “Between now and July 28, our concentration will be the three teams (China, Iran and Jordan) we will play in our group. The coaching staff will dissect each and everyone in those teams,” Reyes added.

    The Nationals have sized up the Chinese, the Iranians and the Jordanians, and Reyes felt the Nationals have a good chance against them.

    Against the Lebanese who were qualifiers in the last two World Championships, the Nationals did well, showing the big improvement they’ve learned from their training stints in the US, Thailand, Iran, Belgrade and Taiwan.

    Standing tall in the Manila Invitationals, Alapag won the Most Valuable Player award and led the Mythical Five Selection that also included teammate Kelly Williams, Lebanese Joe Vogel and Fadi El Khatib and Syrian Michael Mandaly.

    Jimmy Alapag held his own in a fierce shootout with Vogel in the first half as the Nationals seized a 36-35 lead at the turn.

    The Talk 'N Text prized playmaker fired three triples with the last coming before the buzzer sounded, giving the Nationals the one-point edge going into the final half.

    This is not possible... China & Iran @ 1-2 (both wins at different teams). Somebody should win on their match.

    It's still a toss up for these 4 teams. I hope our team pass through or survive this group of death, but I'm still counting for our team 3-0 a bold prediction of mine.

    I'll say 3-0 for the Jordanians and 2-1 for the Philippines

    I'm hoping the results of the poll will be the result in the Asian Championships.
