    To me Jordan Clarkson and Kai are the only players good enough to be just hugot in the 11th hour with t little preperation, the players currently in the PBA are not.

    Based on sage's highschool highlights, he's a perimeter player, like a combo forward or at least a stretch 4. He's just playing center coz he's the tallest. At age 19 by 2023, could be our fourth guy on our rotation at center and PF. Michael Phillips is another option.

    Yeah, 6'8-6'9 Michael Phillips is also an option for the 4 position. The SBP should process for Michael's FIBA exception to play as local maybe after four years of playing for DLSU..

    Or maybe try to get him to our U18 or u19 team, that should be the shorter cut, like what the SBP was able to do with Spencer. With Kai, Aj, junmar and either sage or Phillips at the 5 and 4 rotation, I think that sounds like a very versatile front court, bigs who play differently. We can go tall, we can go quicker, we have permiter specialists, post ups and can also drive to the basket. A lot of combinations can be done. That vs alternating Kai and AJ at the center and having 6'5s at the 4 spot? Well, with my suggested set up, we can still do 4 out 1 in occasionally.

    How about Blatche? If there are no Kai and JC and no one else has been naturalised, should we still consider Blatche? Is he better than any PBA player or any filipino player for that matter? or will he just disrupt the team?

    Not full time, but I think prior to World Cup (3 months full time is reasonable, (he will be paid and its money we'll spent

    DLSU is better than SBP in terms Of recruiting players in US to play for their team.
    SBP could strike deal with this kid after playing with lasalle but it would be hard if the kid possessed good skillset to play under SMC teams.

    Like who? Orme and Philipps? They’re ineligible. The SBP brought in Edu (though Edu was not US based before) and Dwight to the program. Safe to say they’re prioritizing their use of resources.
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    I’ve seen him play in person and stood next to him. Unless he grew 3 inches in a year he’s not that tall
