    this is the current philippine team line up:

    robert bolick - 185 G
    cj perez - 185 G/F
    paul lee - 185 G
    mark barroca - 173 G
    roger pogoy - 185 G
    matthew wright - 193 G/F
    gabe norwood - 196 G/F
    troy rosario - 200 F
    jp erram - 200 C/F
    raymond almazan - 201 C/F
    japeth aguilar - 204 F/C
    junmar fajardo - 208 C
    andray blatche - 211 C
    beau belga - 196 C/F
    jordan clarkson (status not cleared yet) - 196 G
    stanley pringle - 183 G
    christian standhardinger - 201 F/C

    i doubt that jordan clarkson will ever play for us for as long as he is not cleared to play.

    quite short team. i don't expect anything about this team tbh but hoping for them to pull off some surprises.

    atleast, your team is not getting dwarfed since your team has tall guards and wings. you can play small ball effectively.

    WC started with great shooting precision. Did anyone miss even a 3? it's like 10/10 so far.

    edit: 10/12 (those two misses must have been in the first minute that i missed)

    Angola not as weak as people projected them to be. No blowouts so far. Serbia playing a little complacent.

    I remember when the US team had players that were as popular among the Chinese fans as Jokic.

    Serbia just letting Angola shoot those 3s. This game feels like a tune-up game for them.

    They are probably conserving the energy for the more important games.

    What have you been smoking? Philippines a chance against Serbia? They will be lucky if they dont get crushed by 30 points or more. Italy will be the match to watch, although Philippines will need more than one miracle to come up with a win there. These teams not only have a huge height advantage, they also simply play better.
    So sorry to say that, but angola may be your only chance to celebrate.

    dayum, them african teams really suck at this game of basketball for some reason...and it's not like their ancestors once didn't cross the Great Pond and settle down in New England to form US of America later on and start dominating the basketball programme worldwide. So I wonder what gives here then, surely not a lack of physical capabilities

    Of course its because of America's basketball program which is super competitive. Its not the race, its the country. But blacks do have a genetic advantage which helps them.

    This has been scientifically disproven. There is no inherent genetic advantage for blacks in terms of athleticism.

    Apart only from the faster twitching muscles, which help with the speed and jumping ability tremendously...

    LOL. By who? You?

    I do believe every race can have fast twitch genes and can genetically be athletic, also exercising and training plays a part. Whites, Asians or whatever other races also can have 44+ inch verticals. But blacks are likelier to possess these fast twitch genes than other races. Its like every race can have tall people, Asians have their giants like Yao Ming etc..but as a whole Asian are shorter than Europeans (I don't think you are going to dispute that). Same applies for athletic advantages, there are asians who can run and jump with the best of them but as a whole their are athletically inferior to blacks.

    Just look at the 100m race. So far only 1 or 2 asian has break the 10 secs barrier. But blacks have been breaking the 10s barrier all the time and the world's fastest 100m runner Usain Bolt of course is also a black. NBA players are also largely blacks, even though blacks are a minority in America.

    Based on empirical evidence blacks have an athletic advantage whether you like it or not.
