    if we get bracketed to the likes of venezuela, puerto rico, or dominican or maybe argentina, we'll have a better chance. but don't hope to win against euro teams. those are simply too tall too skilled for us.

    america teams are relatively weak actually. the only teams their that are really strong are usa, canada, and brazil. the rest can be actually beaten by asians.

    now, i think indonesia should also gather their shits together in order for them to be automatically qualified as hosts. they should have to look at their co-hosts philippines and japan. they will play for this year's world cup and here indonesia are having difficulties to win seaba level and against guam. they must work harder now.i

    Thirdy, Ricci and Kai already started participating in the qualifiers. Including the other 23-for-23 players in the training pool would do us a lot of good.

    oceania will be seperated. so 1 slot for Oceania and the 2nd best one will go to OQT

    As for Asia, host japan is already seeded so the best ranked asian team in World cup will go to olympics. the 2nd-4th spot goes to OQT..

    So safe to say we are not aiming for moral victories in the World Cup. As it will served as a qualifying tournament also for the Olympics

    For sure but in my opinion, based on their history, China always matchup well with euro teams.

    I hope and pray that Clarkson will be considered as a local. I hope FIBA has the heart at least in WC or Olympic competition that he will be allowed as local, and we are a basketball loving country and this can also be a good advertisement for them.

    Sigh.. Greg Slaughter was a waste when he was given exemption, which i hope was given to Clarkson instead.

    I do believe if we have a Clarkson in our roster, along with Blatche and add Remi Martin and Edu , i think we can reach the quarter finals.

    But come to think of it, the game will be held in China, and China looks down on Philippines and does not us to best ever them so they will find away that Clarkson will not be allowed as local.

    Let's see..it will be very beneficial for CHINA if more NBA players play in the tournament they will be hosting. And besides, Chairman Yao is open-minded and a progressive thinker, if not fiercely independent. I think if SBP will gracefully ask Chairman Yao Ming to request to FIBA on our behalf, PHL might have a chance to play JC as a local. I'm sure FIBA will at least here Yao Ming's request., and it is not in their benefit to dismiss him completely. Shot in the dark, i know, but worth a shot asking Chairman Yao.
