    in the first game there were 9 ateneo players at the start of the game including kouame but without tab. nieto brothers came in the 4h quarter. Ateneo lost that game.

    in the game today they started with just 5 players without kouame but this time coach Tab was present. and theyre leading for the whole game. Coach Tabs presence is really big.

    Go is still a stretch 5 rather than a 4... ANd his development is not because of the imports, its because of Coaching, Tab Baldwin, remember GO and Ikeh were teammate since 2015 , nowhere was Go allowed by BO Perasol to shoot from 3..

    tab and foreign player help Go’s game. everyday practice and at times playing together help Go’s game.

    Kind of silly. some people encouraging kai to go to spain to have a better competition without thinking that kai will also be the import in spain.. don’t tell me the difference between the two countries.. they’re reasons why all countries get imports to elevate locals game.. remember aj edu is also an import in US NCAA..

    This only reinforces my point. Many college coaches treat foreign players like they would treat imports in the PBA -- give them the ball and get the hell out of the way. Coach Tab thinks differently. He knows that the way to develop his big men's game is to not to make the foreign player the focus of the offense, but to give everyone the green light to shoot, including Go. And it has paid dividends for both Go and Ateneo. If Ateneo didn't have a player of Ikeh or Kouame's size, Go will be focusing more on just post moves instead of taking outside jumpers. That is how you do big man development.
    Keep running, big boy.

    And mind you, with tab's guidance, go becomes a good cutter.

    Kai Sotto, even if trained under Tab, won't reach NBA levels if he trains locally. However, he will probably still be a huge upgrade over Slaughter/Fajardo by the time he's done with college.

    Kai actually is a fringe NBA draftee even right now. What separates him from any other Filipino player past and present is his unique combination of physical tools (mobile for his 7' 2" size), abilities (can shoot from the 3, can put the ball on the floor, good passer), high basketball sense and positive mentality. If anything, the move abroad only raises his stock. No one in his family or camp would sound this off as they'd appear cocky, but at the back of their minds they know Kai is a lock to make the NBA.

    He would have the same problem as many Asian prospects who didn't train in Europe or the USA: Lack of playing time or spending most of their career in their team's G-League Affiliate.

    The level of competition you are exposed to at your early age means a lot. It just so happens that the highest levels of competition are in Europe and America.

    There are many Euro players who played in the NBA but never really made an impact and eventually went back to their respective countries.

    Making it to the NBA is one thing. Making an impact is another.

    Kai's camp obviously knows this well, hence the move to train abroad and eventually play in Europe. Teams could pick him as a project (that's all he is right now) but the Sotto's are not gonna settle and they're doing everything they can for Kai to achieve legit prospect status. As early as last year, some people already pegged him as a second rounder. But with the way they're handling things, I think the trajectory shoots up and he'd end up getting picked on the first round.

    Kai is fast lerner, he vastly improved this last two years despite the limited exposure on high level tournament, for sure, 2 years of European training will boost his development, being a first rounder in NBA pick is not a surprise, and I will not wonder if he land on first 5

    If he shows he can be a legit 4/5 guy, then maybe top 5 it is. The one thing he should really be focusing on is containing perimeter players. Failure to do so would have him being the focus of opposing PnR plays.
