    Too bad. Jeff was doing a very good job. He was slowly but surely building a very good team, recruiting the important pieces. The entry of Alfrancis Chua is both good and bad for Letran. Good because he'd be providing good funding. Bad because he'd be dipping his nose and might cause confusion, distraction, and worse, internal conflict.

    With the departure of King Red Lions Bolick and Mocon, veterans Presbitero, Cabanag and Tongco, and potentially Donald Tankoua who's entertaining the idea of foregoing his last year of eligibility, the Red Lions will have 5, possibly 6, vacancies in the lineup.

    It's a good thing that 6'5 JB Bahio, a very reliable, mobile and tough big, is coming back after a year of rest. Ralph Penuela will not be able to play this coming season yet.

    Red Cubs Peter Alfaro and Ain Obenza will most likeby be inserted in the lineup.

    Too bad for Carlo Abadeza who made the wrong decision of transferrring to La Salle last year. Abadeza would have been a shoo-in this season because Boyet Ferndandez already assured him that he'll get Mocon's spot this year despite Carlo's limitations. In La Salle, he'll be lucky if he'll be placed in the lineup taking into account his lack of motor, La Salle's current lineup, their recruitment history and what they do to their old recruits to give way to the new ones.

    So is a 4-peat still possible (or probable) given the vacancies? Any other notable recruits?

    Just a possibility unless asst. ytoy esguerra ( who is really the definition of a alfrancis chua guy)took over letran..Napa is good but with letran reluctancy to hire an import you need to be revolutionary and applied small ball as what magnolia did last season..

    Come to think of it Ian and Rock nRoll comes from school without Imports in Baste and Letran.... So in a way their improvement was hasten.because they were given the PT rather than sit on the bench as 3rd string Center for the team after the 2 imports.. Look at Balte Baltazar, he had his breakout year in the UAAP after Mbala was gone and Kiwi Samuels got injured.. Its still playing time and real game situations that develop the player rather than level of competition . LOOK AT Kobe Oaras, he came from D1 program but no apparebt improvement due to lack of PT...

    how this guys can perform without pressure if they were tasked to do the dirty job everytime they enter the floor.. saglit lang namn sila sa laro eh..kaya need ng playing time restriction sa imports per quarter where 2nd quarter you cannot put your import but your opponent can and vice versa come 3rd..discretion na yan if they will play import full 2nd or third..its an advantage pannga as you save imports from foul trouble..

    that’s the problem.. some here complain about wanting a 6’5 or 6’6 small forward and yet you don’t want imports.. you want a 6’5 centers again? that’s a backward thinking.. if we want to produce a danny seigle type player, having a import in collegiate will do.. that’s the first step and the coach should teach that 6’6 player to play wing..

    No playing time? need to earn it.. prove it.. One foreign player per team.. If not for foreign players in uaap, we won’t able to see troy as PF but instead a Center.

    Duncan was David Robinson's PF. Ralph Sampson was Olajuwon's PF. These are seven footers we're talking about yet they slide down to PF.

    If our 6'5'' bigs want playing time, they need to show PF skills else they're gonna get buried behind these import centers.

    Also, the coaches need to be open minded and try to play his biggest local at a position other than center, especially if his team has import centers.

    This is what I'm saying. It's not the imports that is the problem but the 2 import rule before. An import no matter how good needs to rest and there are benefits to playing two bigs. So there is still room for local bigs.

    Look at Justine Baltazar. If he were in the NCAA there would have been no need to develop perimeter skills. He would have just bulked up and he would be the most dominant guy in the league. Like a Fajardo. But since he played with and against imports he knows the importance of speed and skill. And he improved a lot since HS when he was just a back to the basket guy.

    Carino will never be stretch 4 as the main guy would be then 6'4 mocon.. again there are more quality players in that position than him...so its really in the end survival of fittest..

    But statistic wise these are the pba big man who flourished in the league.. junmar, greg, ian Raymond, Beau... As those big players who flourished in the league who played in college with imports.. Rosario, Aldrech ramos.. stretch 4's.. you can include kevin ferrer as he was with karim abdul..

    Look at they done to survive..they become stretch 4's on what cost? You be the judge on their careers..

    The successful bigmen you listed are pure centers and only Belga has a somewhat semi reliable 3. I think this says more about the PBA's lack of decent sized bigmen IMO.

    Ferrer went from versatile 3 to a stretch 4 who forgot how to shoot. Troy took a step back after his rookie year. Aldrech only wants to shoot 3. All of them are the lanky thin type who has no business playing under the rim not to mention undersized except for Rosario.

    Just this afternoon, to illustrate how the presence of African imports can hinder Filipino bigs development, in the absence of Kuoame , Isaac Go erupted for 28 pts on 7/12 3's as Ateneo forced game 3 against SBU in 2018-2019 PCCL...

    Go would never have learned to play the 4 if he was the only legit-sized big in the Ateneo lineup. He wouldn't have the green light to shoot without the presence of Ikeh (2016-17) and Kouame (2018).
    Keep running, big boy.
