    I know Thailand has another promising guard in their youth squad when we lost to them in one of the youth tournaments.. Who is that guy? I think he will be a good addition for them to have a chance.. But the problem for Thailand is they have no legit big man to have a chance, If they decide to get a naturalized big man, then Lamb will be out..

    Justin Bassey? He's FIBA eligible but he's currently playing D1 ball for Harvard. So he's in the same boat as AJ Edu in that he's only available during the college basketball offseason.

    Ah, Justin Bassey. The same guy who killed Batang Gilas U18 in 2016 with 34/21/5. Yes, the same BG team that just beat the Chinese U16 team a year prior. Of course, China U18 got their revenge and ate them alive twice in 2016.

    He is currently a senior, so big possibility that he will be available for Thailand in the next window. Next stop ABL..

    Justine Bassey dominated batang gilas back then but looks like he's stopped growing. Was already listed at 6'5 back then, some even had him at 6'6. Anyway he's still of great size considering that he now plays guard. Looked at his current NCAA stats and saw he's a decent rebounder (great actually, considering the position he plays) with almost 6 a game, not so much of a scorer (8 per game) but is very accurate at the 3 pt area, 42.5%, (even better conference stats). Despite not scoring heavily, he's playing at an average of around 32 minutes so I'm assuming he's a very good defender. Once he's made available for Thailand NT and they get the right naturalized player, a center, most probably, they'd be pretty competitivel. I hope FIBA considers relaxing its eligibility rules not just for our sake but also for the likes of Thailand. They can have their version of a big 3 in Bassey, Lamb and the naturalized.

    The game between Indonesia (w/ prosper and jawato) vs Thailand (w/ basset) will be a great match up.. evenly match between these two.. I hope no injuries will happen to both camps before their match on November..

    We need a naturalized player in both korea games because i am pretty sure, they will use ra guna against us. We need a counter to him. The rest of match ups are even. Maybe almazan, erram and go are pretty ok na.

    Will certainly be more interesting and competitive should those players play. I sincerely hope those programs become better and better, it will do us good too in the long run

Having 2 6'5 and taller explosive combo guards who match up well with clarkson will make the team even harder to beat.

    The key to winning was always, and eternally, about never having any nt player with serious size, athleticism and skills disadvantage for at least 10 players. The 2 disadvantaged players must at least be strong asia-fiba(not merely pba)-level 3point killers or monster rebounders. It may not be an nba team, but it should at least be built like an nba playoff team.

    The real benefit from having an nt coach like tab is he will consciously try to build a team stronger than the best nz team he has seen or worked with. The awful yet very real mental block of a pba-based coach was always in accepting too easily fiba-substandard pba players as unavoidable constraints.
    The 2019 Toronto Raptors formula w/ Lowry and Van Fleet being the only 5'11 guys surrounded w/ tall and lengthy defenders.

    If Tab builds a 2 way team, that would be amazing.

    I respect your post bro but I'm not really high with Erram. Look how lousy he played vs indo, considering that he might be the best big man that we have on that team.

    The questions is who? Our senate takes longggggg years to naturalize a player. Only blatche was given a rush order.

    Junmar and Japeth are the only ones capable of slowing him down. I want to say Kai and Edu, but their body is not ready for ratliffe yet.

    This is the problem by SBP and MVP, MVP teams doesnt have good big men internationally. Best they have is almazan but I doubt he will recover early from his injury

    Man, that Big 3 could be a legit championship contender not just in SEA but also in Asia.

    I think Tyler Lamb classifies as a naturalize. Same case with CS and Pringle

    Yes, that is correct but that's why I was saying I'm hoping fiba relaxes its eligibility rules. Afterall, he's legit half Thai and has been connected with Thai basketball for a while already. I think he's still with their ABL team, mono vampire. Maybe, aside from allowing 1 naturalized, fiba should also allow at least 1 who doesn't meet the before age 16 rule
