    Default Players that we can naturalized

    These players can be good to be naturalized:

    Randy Livingston
    Set NBDL all-time record of most assist in a game with 22 assists.
    But he's too old for it since he's already 33 years old.


    Rod Benson
    Set NBDL all-time record of most rebounds in a game with 28 rebounds.
    He's now playing in Europe at SLUC Nancy in Nancy, France.


    Morris Almond
    Set NBDL all-time record of most points in a game with 53 points.
    He's now playing with the Utah Jazz in the NBA.


    Cheikh Samb
    Set NBDL all-time record of most blocks in a game with 11 blocks.
    He's connected to the detroit pistons.

    I recommend this guy, who is on the verge of being cut or making the line-up of the WAS Wizards. Great Hustle, strength and athleticism.

    if we are on a budget, we will not get a good player to be naturalized without any reason. i mean, let's be practical. if you are not getting tons of money, why would you want to be naturalized? so, if we have monetary problems, we should get players who has a reason to get naturalized with money not the primary driver. are there imports with a Filipina wife? living here for a long period of time? has actual Filipino heritage but is not considered Filipino due to legal technicalities?

    You are correct C2Hamm, let's add to this list players who come from the not "so-rich" African or East European countries as even though they might have monetary problems, they are looking for a fresh start where they can't find in their own countries.

    But I must add, the suggestions given in this thread and other threads really show tremendous talent. But we must not only look at the stats, we must also look into the player's attitude and total character. Remember what we are looking for is a player who would be a "VERY BIG ASSET" to the team and not a "SUPERSTAR". We do not want to end up with a uncoachable player or a person who would be a liability in the locker room. Imagine if we get a player who acts like Lee Benson ..... it would be a disaster.

    And please note we are actually looking for a player who is not really that old.

    I would just like to share a post of a frustrated Lebanese regarding the play of their naturalized player:

    Just a reminder, a mercenary is more susceptible to be tempted on "game-fixing" than other players.

    Just asking, why did you consider these fellows to be naturalized anklebreaker? Do they have knowledge about the philippines? They have filipino friends or somebody who recommended them? There are so many younger, taller and reliable naturalization candidates available in america, europe and africa. Maybe you know them personally. Why did you choose those players..

    by the way .... don't get me wrong. I am not against getting Naturalized Players. It is in the FIBA rules that it's allowed. I'm all for it as it would be a very big boost to our National Team especially he really get the right one that fits well with the rest of the team.

    But I am more inclined that we intensify our search for young talented basketball players in the provinces and overseas. In the Pangasinan, Cagayan and Mindanao, we are now discovering youths with extreme heights. As we know it, Filipinos are everywhere in the world .... afterall Filipinos are citizens of the world. There is star that is only waiting to be discovered and could be developed more to become a much brighter star.
    I do believe even though with it's population China has a big pool of talents, Filipinos overseas has such a pool even though we cannot match that of China's in term of number we might have a big number with a better quality.

    Shucks! I guess we should look elsewhere, preferably in Africa and Eastern Europe
