    Default Philippine National Teams - Past and Present

    I've always felt that a dream of every cager is to suit up for the national team and represent his country carrying the flag's colors. We've been actively involved in international basketball competitions dating back to the 1936 Berlin Olympics where we were represented by the eminent former Senator Ambrosio Padilla.

    This thread is all about our national teams in the past and present. I do not know if this has been archived for reference in other websites but I want to compile the list of players in the national teams that have suited up over the years.

    Hope you can indulge us with your own list and thoughts.

    Thanks!

    “Hindi ko na inaano ‘yun (mapasama sa pool) eh,” Santos said. “Kung susumahin mo ang buhay naming mga player, ‘san ba talaga ang first priority namin, ‘di ba? Ang first priority ko, dahil dito ko nakuha lahat ng kagandahan ng buhay ko at para sa pamilya ko, ang San Miguel. Alam naman ng lahat ‘yun. Ito ang dapat kong paglingkuran.”

    The difference between then and now is, before players are dying to be included on the NT Team lineup, now the NT Team is dying to get top caliber players to suit on their lineup.

    Haha! Wish I can Nardy. But I'm sure someone else would here. I feel this is a rich source of information for everyone who would want to know more about the members of the past national teams. I took the idea in some of your previous posts when we were discussing about some members of the national team.

    Would you recall the composition of the men's basketball team of 1983 (the one that got booted out unceremoniously in the ABC - winning all our games but placing only 9th)? My recollection were Still, Moore, Calma, Caidic, Pumaren, Almario, Dignadice, etc. I don't think Samboy Lim was already around back then as I recall he only joined NCC in 1984. But I may be mistaken.

    We'll try to cover as much ground as possible, especially now that the 2010 Men's Basketball Team has just been formed for the Guangzhou Asian Games.
