    I was checking updates and you guys where leading.

    I always thought that you guys are a hard match up for any team specially when playing at home.
    Imo ah, the naturalize player is a bad fit.Junmar and cs can contain and pound the guy even when he was in Manila(even Kai Sotto tried to dunk on him). Good core of Ahmad Ibrahim, saoud, arakji and haidar but lacks a leader, a nba level veteran wingman whose scoring should be in level of a dar tucker who can "take charge". Old traditional 5 isnt really useful even in asia now especially if you arent that talented offensively.

    As for their being tough matchup at home, their 2017 performance proves otherwise as they cant close games. Ironic that new zealand and korea were their bracket in 2017 asia cup.
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    How about when they had Norvel Pelle as their NP? If you recall, Lebanon beat Gilas by like 20 points with him on the floor.

    Majok had same impact where we first met him as np...Both are defensive c's and plays the same.. their weakness is also the same see how junmar and japeth scored against pelle last 2017( its fadi that beat us)..like lebanon we can win on any asian power house team with our domestic lineup we just need tweaking./, but we arent patient enough ( or should i say a world cup non appearance is unacceptable to Filipino baller community)
