    he's a journeyman in the PBA playing back up pg roles in 9 teams that he played for, a streaky shooter(likes to shoot il-advise threes) but useless when his shooting is off

    What should Alab do next? Should they start getting players outside of Dy's control? For me it's either sign the biggest PBA free agents like Carlo Lastimosa,RR Garcia,Jeric Teng reinforced with Fil-ams like Chris Ellis,Keith Jensen or prepare UAAP/NCAA stars for the next level.

    In terms of starting 5 ABL has better talent than PBA largely because of world imports,also allowing half heritage players increased the talent quite a lot for certain countries.

    If anything, PBA wins from bench depth. Their 10-12th player could probably be 6-7th man in ABL.

    I'm actually looking forward to the next PBA draft. Last year's was full of guards but hopefully the next one should have taller players

    The catch is they have to be managed by Charlie Dy.

    This is the first time I've heard someone called Urbiztondo a beast hehe. Anyway it's great he's got leadership skills now. I used to enjoy watching him shooting his team (Ginebra) out of games.

    If you watched the ABL games, he can score points like crazy (At times). Obviously not starter material at his age, but he has a veteran presence and I think his the best "pure" shooter in Alab, I don't know how accurate he is back then but he makes it when it counts now. He reminds me of Gary David who I watched in the last gilas outing.

    Kai Sotto is going to be the bread and butter center for gilas in the next decade. Big man wise I dont think gilas won't have a problem in the future with guys like kai sotto, aj edu, ethan kirkness and kobe paras (For PBA and SEA games at least). Ethan is the dark horse, he seems un-athletic and uncoordinated in the clips i've seen and he plays with kids or inferior competition so I don't know if he can translate to a higher level player. But I had the same doubts with Kai till I saw him play in the u16 asia and worlds and you can't reach height.

    China on the other hand are starting to have elite guards like Guo Ailun and Sun Minghui. More Chinese kids wants to be like Curry or Irving in China now then Yao. Its interesting to see how the battle will play out in the near future.

    Josh was one of those rare players who could keep BOTH teams in the game. One moment he’s torching the defense from the arc and coming up with timely steals. The next he’ll be bricking contested jumpers and have his passes picked off by opposing guards.

    I think Kobe will just be played at the sf position and nothing more. Like you said though, the bigs are stacked with Sotto,Edu,Go,Rike,Tamayo,Cortez,Carino etc. I just hope by 2023 China doesn't have an all 7 foot lineup yet hehe.
