    Default IBN 2018 Year-End Wishlist

    It's that time of the year again, and what better way to end 2018 than to post our wishes for Philippine basketball for 2019?

    Let me kick off this list:


    1) A sweep of the next two qualifying games vs Qatar and Kazakhstan to get us into our second straight FIBA World Cup.
    2) An in-form Andray Blatche to anchor the qualifying team and the team at the World Cup. This should be his last hurrah -- and what a fitting end to his international career.
    3) FIBA recognition of Jordan Clarkson as a local player.
    4) Kai Sotto finally signing with a team abroad. I'm more of an FC Barcelona fan, but if he goes to Real Madrid, why the hell not?
    5) AJ Edu making it to the NCAA Tournament with Toledo.
    6) Sotto and Edu leading the U-19 team to the knockout stages of the FIBA U-19 World Cup.
    7) Another steady point guard for the U-19 team. One cannot have too many Panopio-type players.
    8) Coach Tab finally coaching the U-19 team (and maybe the World Cup team too).
    9) Another UP-Ateneo UAAP Finals series.
    10) A successful SEA Games, with an all-college/HS core (Thirdy Ravena, Juan Gomez de Liano, CJ Cansino, Kai Sotto, Matt Nieto, Isaac Go, Justine Baltazar, Leonard Santillan, Justin Gutang, Arvin Tolentino, Ken Tuffin, maybe a young naturalized big) demolishing the rest of SEABA and proving that the Philippines is still light-years ahead of the competition.

    Happy Holidays, everyone!
    Keep running, big boy.

    Hoping for an ABL-PBA merger. PBA is getting boring and we know it is only 4-5 teams competitive and the rest are mere pawns.

    Kai Sotto is our modern big, can shoot the perimeter, post and at this stage with decent handles, hope he continues to improve.

    I think you can request it to the powers it be.. buy ABL.. let the Jerico Ilagan's group have positions in the league.PBA has also had good partnership in asia league group in macau making them one good backer to lure the top kbl cba sbl and b league teams to form the asia league. I already saw carlo p and jutt sulit covering non alab abl games together with noel zarate. They are very qualified to handle english broadcast of the games to cater western(asian americans/europeans) market. Although you need fiba asia's blessing to lure the west asian teams as it is handled by hagop kadirjans group very well. Unless we do west asia and east asia conference thing and yes east asia together with aus and nz will be very loaded.

    -Kai Sotto to study abroad
    -Toledo to be part of march madness at least reaching round of 32 with Edu being a contributor
    -Coach TAB to handle our national basketball program
    -Qualify to Fiba World Cup 2019
    -Win some major international basketball tournaments
    -For PBA to have a 2 conference format, 1 all Filipino and the other is unlimited hiring meaning if a team want to put a 12 men foreign African team then so be it.
    -For PBA to consider exploring the MBA format
    -For African college import to be allowed to be drafted in PBA
    -Cleveland to make the playoffs
    -A Women's Pro Basketball League
    -A bigger and more prestigious Palarong Pambansa supported by the government and be televised all over the country. This can serve as a source of talent not just for basketball but also for other sports in general.

    Happy New Year to everyone

    Very same wishes bro, specially your No. 1 wish.

    But we should not only wish, we should pray that those wishes will materialize.

    Happy New Year bro

    Blatche, Douthit, Fajardo, Aguilar, Taulava, Slaughter, Sotto, Edu, Balingit with the whole PSL League in a full on orgy. In 25 years we will be challenging Team USA for the Olympic gold. That tops my wishlist.

    I for one is guilty on notbaccepting the u16 rule but my reason is that sbp and the institutions uaap ncaa and pba doesnt respect it... If i had a wish is to that all players playing in pba should be fiba eligible but it will take time and lot of panghihinayang to make it happen..

    It was already stated by the thread starterand early posts... I think the drive for 2020 olympucs is for 3x3 not in 5v5 as we have potential to beat guys in this level..

    I wish the PBA would regularly send the best team to the FIBA Asia Champions Cup. Para more exposure for our clubs, not just the NT.

    Hopefully the Asian region creates a Euro league type premier tournament, where the best pro teams. In domestic competition compete, the PBA eventually SHOULD. just be a minor semi pro league, with 3 legit real competitive teams whose main goal is to win title In the region not simply to win PBA conference championships
