    Default Young guys exposure

    this team is lacking with bigs I wonder if they could get AJ Edu in lieu of Kai Sotto and Angelo Kuoame instead of Andray Blatche.Guys like Kobe Paras,Juan Gomez DeLiano and Isaac Go might be a big Help sa well.

    I personally think this is what Kobe lacks,being in a very competitive environment. He Will benefit having teammates like Gray and Adams and of course a probable stronger competition. Even younger guys like Juan and Thirdy may learn from Williams and Brickman same goes with Edu and Kuoame.

    They must add Kobe definitely. He needs exposure and more experience.

    Thumbs up



    MIGHTY SPORTS will once again get the chance to represent the Philippines in the coming 41st William Jones Cup this July 11 to 21 in Chinese-Taipei. The squad took home the championship in the prestigious annual tournament in their first attempt in 2016 wherein they swept all their eight games by an average margin of 17.4 points. READ MORE

    I've heard of a rumor that the organizers don't want SBP to send a college team (which is fine since Mighty Sports is the rep). How true is this?

    Personally would be more interested if SBP sent Gilas (senior OR cadets), to check on progress/chemistry, or the collegiate team, just to see how far Filipino amateurs can go (heck, I'm an Ateneo fan, but I'd watch the heck out of DLSU duking it out in the Jones Cup).

    i dont care if ateneo thrash taiwan, or la salle or even Bo Perasol outcoach Charlie Parker...but it would be fantastic if somehow sbp for once revived the 23 for 23 shit in this jones cup and not use the universities and mighty sports as coverup for sbp shortcomings
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    That is also what I want. The Gilas cadets plus a big American import (at least 6-foot-10) plus Roosevelt Adams.
    "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    This is my proposed lineup (Dubai and Jones cup lineup comparison): A combination of mighty sports players and amateur players.


    Lamar Odom F/C 6'10 > Renaldo Balkman 6'8 F/C - a better contributor than a washed out Odom. Should provide very good numbers and leadership on the floor.

    Justin Brownlee PF 6'7 > Eugene Phelps 6'6 SF - hopefully he could deliver the same numbers as what Brownlee could provide

    Randolph Morris C 6'11 > Angelo Kuoame 7'' C - a steady low post threat, should be a very good post defender and blocker.A good substitute to Kai Sotto.

    Jett Manuel G 6'1 > Aaron Black 6'2 SG - ?

    Gabriel Banal G/F 6'3 > retained

    Jeremiah Gray G/F 6'5 > retained - athletic shooter that can be an asset on defense

    Roosevelt Adams G/F 6'5 > retained - another tall shooter might not be as athletic as Gray but has better defense

    Joseph Yeo SG 6'' > retained

    Juan Gomez de Liaño PG 6'1 > retained - may need to be more consistent and be efficient

    Leonard Santillan F/C 6'5 > Isaac Go 6'8 F/C - big man with a three point range. should be a big help on defense and rebounding

    Justin Gutang SG 6'3 > Thirdy Ravena 6'3 SG - youth and athleticism. Should be the energy guy of the team.

    Troy Rike F/C 6'7 > AJ Edu 6'11 F/C *will he be allowed by the NCAA to play for a semi pro team? should provide consistent numbers in rebounds and blocks.Might not be as good as Blatche at least not yet.

    Caesar Wongchuking Jr. G 5'11 > Michael Williams 6'2 G - i'm expecting he is a Chris Ross type of scoring point guard

    Jason Brickman Guard G 6'' > retained -should at least average 10 assists per game.

    Possible Starting Lineup: Balkman 6'8 , Phelps 6'6 , Gray 6'5 , Ravena 6'3 , Brickman 6''
    Tall Lineup : Kuoame 7'', Edu 6'11, Phelps 6'6 , Adams 6'5 , Williams 6'2

    The problem in our gilas cadet 23 is never assembled since last year fil-oil tournament, in fact in that stint, they won only 1 game when kai played, they have no chemistry, most of them are college players and they have the talent but for sure, because they are young, they cannot easily adjust and cope with their teammate, Baka tapos na ang tourney, Hindi pa sila nagkakaamuyan,

    imo, our u-19 should play in this tourney as a practice instead.

    The Mighty Sports lineup and participation clearly shows the incompetence of the SBP. The players cannot contribute anything to the development of Phil basketball. It should have been the cadets playing here in preparation for 2023. This year should be the last year we get the pba to "help." Starting next year, the lineup for all international tournaments should be the 2023 team.

    Exactly. Cadets should be taking advantage of this opportunity.

    No players available.. Those players from 2023 team, UAAP players will be deep in preparation for their upcoming season NCAA will start next week while for PBA players., Commish Cup is ongoing. Fom UAAP, Go, Thirdy, Nieto, Rivero, Tuffin, JGDL, Paras, Guzom wont be available. FROM NCAA Ambohot and Carino while Bolick, Perez, Mocon and Alejandro due to ongoing PBA season... Ang pwede nga lang yata ay si Remi Martin, as Kai, Tamayo and Edu will in Greece for U19, The two Tolentinoes are with MPBL, Eike is with Basilan Chooks 3x3 while Ramos will go with Ateneo for Euro tour...

    That is why we need a full time team especially with us hosting. Ronald Mascarinas should get his balls back and create the team. He already mentioned it before but backtracked when the PBA reacted.
