    As I've said before, Iran is fragile without Hadadi & Bahrami in its arsenal. I say Iran minus Hadadi & Bahrami is a tad bit better than fellow Middle East teams like Saudi Arabia, Syria, UAE & Bahrain.
    Unbelievable. A PBA-select Gilas team lost to Iran at home without their Big 3 in the 2019 WC qualifiers, yet this same team lost to Japan without their NBA players by 27 points two years later.

    Please do not interpret my answer as demeaning , but objectively in terms of talent the answer is NO. but in terms of competitive national team, given this team realistically can prepare together over a prolonged period , much more than teams with talent that are spread across different leagues in the world including the NBA. I think Gilas would be seeded as a team that will be forecasted to make the 2nd round top 16 in the world in the 2023 world cup playing at home. I really think so.

    Agree that RJ has better court vision than SJ. To be honest, this is quite the contrary to what I expected from the 2 PG's prior to the 3rd window. I thought SJ is the better play maker.

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

    I think you mean Chinese-Taipei (whom Japan beat 98-61), not Iran?

    Passing and decision making are two different things . RJ can pass better but at this point does not make better choices. Takes time.

    Good point , what's RJs assist to TO?
    I like RJs upside though, as decision making can be learned.

    agree. always thought that he would be our best bet to be Gabe's successor. good size at the wing, lockdown d, complete with the inconsistent shooting hehe

    Sobrang galing pala ng passing ni SJ, eh solid na kasi assist numbers ni rj even sa fiba asia. What I know is sj is a natural scorer, kataon lang mas malalaki kalaban this level as we cant see him scoring much here..that buzzer beater 3 was a product of scori g instinct extending the one hand banker from three point line

    What separate Johnny from other Filipino point guards is his ability to swipe the ball on opposing point guards resulting to fast break opportunities, sobrang husay niya sa category na yun

    With RJ, you got a skilled PG with such a high confidence in his game & tremendous guts - things that can't be taught.

    Agree with you, whatever flaws in RJ's decision making & approach to the game can be corrected or refined. Its a process that takes time. What is important is that RJ has exhibited promise & potential at this early stage of his career.

    BTW, even in that exhibition game vs. China, RJ seems has played well based on Carlo Pamintuan's statements.

    As a young boy in the 1990s and early 2000s I didn't understand the game of basketball too well, so how does RJ right now compare to his dad? RJ seems to be looking up as the successor to Jason Castro.

    Johnny A is RJ's uncle, not his father.

    I say RJ has better 3-point shooting than Johnny A ever had. Though I think Johnny A was quicker & more athletic.

    I didn't get to see much of Johnny A's games when he was 21, but I have this feeling that Johnny at 21 didn't have as much confidence in his game as RJ has at present.

    I feel if Johnny A played for a Phi team at 21, he would have struggled a bit against the top 3 Asian teams at that time which were China, Korea & Japan
