    ST: Yeah, I could.


    Yet how come it was also reported that when SBP people asked Sage (& perhaps his parent/s) about the possibility of him playing for the Phi National team, Sage didn't give a positive answer?
    im pretty sure he doesn't want to say "no i dont want to play for the philippines" in a published article.

    in the last part of the interview.
    That was in July 2019, it's now January 2020. who are we to say that he hasn't changed his mind?

    Looks like Sbp has done its part. Now if sage will not cooperate, we just need to move on, we will discover more in the future more talented, and more willing.

    Of course if Sage isn't interested at all to play for the Phi team, then we can't do anything about it. We have no choice but to let go of him & move on. At least SBP people did what they need to do.

    Bottomline is, one only regrets on the things that he had failed to do or didn't do enough.

    Maybe Sbp should scout 13 years old or younger. It's hard when the recruiting player is 15.
    We only discivered Sage when he is 15. I saw a video where he is only a 13 year old kid and plays basketball. It's dissappointing we cannot scout him earlier

    If his career didn't pan out expect him to play in the Philippines where he can earn millions while dominating midgets and say obnoxious things like how adobo has always been his favorite food and say tagalog phrases like "mahal ko kayo".

    well even if his parents agree they will still need to produce documents if im
    mistaken is if one of the parents is still filipino citizen when sage was born?not sure.

    I hope we discver a jalen green talent willing to play for philippines. There's no way they can crack up the roster of dream team usa( Lebron,curry,etc). Fil Am needs to realize that. Gilas will give them more exposure.( Just like how gilas impact Aj edu and panopio, they are scouted because of gilas)

    Wag lang 6'6 na Jimmy Santos although we think if Jimmy plays seriously he'll be a decent player,but not just good enough

    Based on demisana skill set, he will grown likely a Don Ramon or jun limpot type or hakeem olajowon type of player

    Basically, we have the materials now to be competitive, It's up to the SBP how to enhance this materials. The problem of height is slowly being solved by the arrival of tall players. The one lacking is a pure shooter. Like a more athletic Allan Caidic. Imagine an Allan Caidic with Japeth athleticism with a 6'5. above height. We already solved height problem. We just need to solve the lack of shooters problem.

    how can we have 6'5 shooters if coaches always force them to play as paint-protecting PF/Cs?

    Yeah, that is what we lack right now, outside shooters. But that is something we had in abundance during the 90's with Caidic, Solis, Lastimosa, Cabahug, Agustin, Magsanoc.

    A few years ago, I thought Matt Wright is the outside shooter we've looking for. Unfortunately, Wright is no Caidic, nor a Solis, nor a Ricardo Brown.

    Just when we've found the height, we've lost shooting in the process.
