    Forbes played a couple of games for NLEX pala before being replaced by Arnett Moultrie. I guess Alapag had to improvise when they lost Balkman. He did get 2 bigs and a smaller import.

    This is easier said than done but this is just a suggestion. If Alab wants an affordable import, meaning 6'6 import who plays big the maybe they can get Eugene Phelps.

    Charles Rhodes would be a good replacement for Forbes.

    Agree! That alone is a big upgrade.

    It would be a chance for Rhodes to redeem himself in a San Miguel uniform. He's still a good player; it's just that he wasn't a good fit for SMB at the time, playing 4 and 5 when the team was loaded at that position with CS and JMF. Jollibee guy was a natural 3 who could play big at times and was a better fit. SMB-Alab needs a traditional big and "The Colossus of RHodes" fits the bill.

    Perez and Bolick will be at the same level as BRP if they play in ABL.

    It's just a matter of time and BRP is still adjusting to the PBA. Not really a comparision just showing the numbers here:

    Perez PBA career high so far is 39 points
    BRP - 28 points
    I must be looking the wrong places but I can't seem to find Robert Bolicks career high so far

    Btw it is pretty sick that Julian Boyd had 4 ACLs and still have so much bounce.
    I had a full ACL tear before and it is damm tedious to get back my leg to somewhat comfortable level.

    I can't imagine going through 4 ACLs and still play at such a high level. I will probably just quit totally
    if I had a 2nd ACL tear.

    Advent of modern sports medicine.

    3 decades ago, you suffer an ACL tear & you would loose much of your foot speed & leap. Now we can see a number of players hit by ACL tear, some even hit twice, yet would hardly show any sign of slowing down or losing some leap. I think Allein Maliksi suffered 2 ACL tears already yet he is still quick & athletic.

    BTW, I hope AJ Edu won't lose any foot speed & leap & bounce after that ACL tear.

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

    Not as athletic as CJ Perez & not that quick but I think his game has some semblance with Bolick.

    I agree with Silent Killer that Heading is more of a shooting guard than a point guard, but I think Heading could be converted as a combo guard.

    probably genetics and definitely good sports medicine..

    Do you think the ABL locals willl improve if they use 3 imports but allow only 2 at the same time in the court? This is like in the Middle eastern league like Lebanon and Iran.

    Based on what I'm seeing it's not really imports guarding locals and not many locals can really score (or even attempt) to score against the big imports. So locals are stagnant in a league that's still import vs import.

    The locals who do get playing time will improve greatly but the rest won't improve at all. Look at Lebanon and Iran national players, they're very good. I think in Lebanon all three imports can be on the floor at the same time

    Just allow all 3 They have their own local leagues for their own local players. ABL is like the cream of the crop where the few best locals can play at the highest level.

    Yes, those locals are pretty good. I watch the ABL games so I know. Like Cai Chen, he was better than a washed up Eddy Curry last season. There's quite a few locals who can score. Lin Chih Chieh too, but of course that guy is a vet already.
