    Greg has looked really good so far (at least based off of the highlight videos I’ve seen). It’ll be interesting to see him face off against Junemar this season.

    Tim Cone is the least surprised with Slaughter’s impressive debut, saying it is merely a reflection of the hard work the seven-footer put in during the break in between conferences as he strives to get better after a long injury layoff.

    “If you have a chance to watch us play against LG and the Korean teams, you’ll see that Greg is extremely playing well," said Cone. "Now, he is a year and a half, almost two years removed from his ACL injury.”

    Cone said he has also made adjustments with the way he uses Slaughter. From a low-posting big man, he has turned the former Ateneo standout into a 'movement type of player."

    “He is not the June Mar [Fajardo] kind of guy where he is going to sit on the post and try to beat people up in the post. He really is a movement type of player. He can shoot jumpers and he can get to the basket off rolls and stuff like that.

    “We are kinda just figuring it out right now. We are using him a little bit differently than we used to in the past. He is responding very, very well. He is excited coming into practice every day. He is excited coming to the games. He knows he is going to play well."

    On the other hand, Cone swears the extra work has made Slaughter quicker with or without the basketball.

    “He is moving up and down the court, you saw him get down in transition and get that dunk. That was something that he couldn’t do a couple of conferences ago," Cone said. "He is playing quick out there. You have a seven-footer who plays quick, you really have a weapon."

    It’s looking very likely. He should be fine as there probably won’t be too many outside shooting big men to guard. Although it hasn’t been confirmed that Kai will be on the final roster, I don’t think he’s ready to deal with Denzel Bowles on his own at this point of his career, so Greg can try to reduce that pressure a bit.

    Slaughter being a movement player potentially will make him a good international player, where player movement is imperative and Bully ball is almost extinct. Probably thats the reason why Junmar can replicate his PBa performance with Gilas, as he needs the ball in his hands and can bully his opponent almost always in Fiba game..

    Its partly SMBs system also. It needed June Mar to play almost 40 minutes to clog up the middle and open up the shooters. Im sure if Cone had June Mar hed use him on the move rather than just dump it to him.

    What’s behind JMF’s miraculous recovery from the ankle injury that kept him from playing in the terrific 12? Pinagdasalan ni St. Ronald Tubid?

    The smell of potential bonuses and incentives.

    its a minor sprain. no sane coach would play any player with a minor injury on a non-bearing exhibition game.

    SMB just too strong for Phoenix. Matthew Wright firing blanks in the 4th.

    What's wrong with Terence Romeo? They're up big and he almost got into an altercation with Napoles then Perkins. Unnecessary emotions on his part. Buwaya na nga, may hangin pa ang ulo. He has character issues along with Abueva.

    Napoles getting PT without CA and doing well. 9pts 5 rbs and team leading plus 12. This guy has that lean frame and long arms.

    Fajardo, Cabagnot, Parks, Pogoy, Castro and Rosario all turning out none the worse for wear following being benched or played sparingly for the Terrific 12. Shows how we view this Asia-wide tournament as the less prestigious one. The logic baffles me, the same way colleges take the Filoil Flying V Cup as a preseason warmup when it should be treated like a true national championship.

    fajardo tweaked his ankle twice vs phx. The other teams in terrific 12 were using the new and/or younger guys too and using it as a preseason.

    Yet the organizers of the Terrific 12 talked like all participating teams were treating the tournament seriously & were going all out to win the championship.

    What's new? PBA board and team owners still act and think like their league is the best in Asia lol.

    SMB is too strong for almost every team in the PBA but in the recently concluded Terrific 12 tournament they sucked na parang mga uhugin.

    Arwind "Bagyo" Santos na ang galing-galing sa PBA was reduced to a dud in the Terrific 12.
