    That's a European-style schedule, actually.

    Pwede pala ganyan noh... I think PBA should do this schedule rather than having Thursday and Friday schedule.. Some fans are busy with that dates, while weekend schedules are free time for most of the people.. Even that they have morning schedule, especially on Sunday then that's OK because most of the people are in their homes just resting and they want some Hobbies in their houses.. Having full PBA schedule from morning til early evening schedule (7pm - 8pm range) will might a good idea in Sundays..

    Slightly off topic, nasa B League din pala si Jawato. I wonder how he'll compare to Filipinos in the B. league. Just a curious assessment for the upcoming Asia Cup

    Looks like he was hired by a strong team, though

    He has yet to play for Tochigi Brex Utsunomiya. I bet Jawato is going to also shine in the B-league. I expect him to average around 15 pts per game even if he is playing for a higher tier B-league team. Here's a thing, the B-league has no good quality local "fours" as good or even someone who can come close to the skill level of Jawato.

    His team are runner up last season of B-League.. So his team are title contenders... Are all B-League teams are required having Asian imports, or some teams only? Or they decide not to take Asiam imports?

    Disagree if Jawato plays the 4, he will be fitted against world imports who are a couple of inches taller than him. At 6'4, Jawato will be up against 6'7 or taller world imports if he plays the 4. The coach needs to slide him down to 3 where Asian imports like Thirdy, Dwight, Parks, and Javi are playing.

    Well, let's just wait & see. Anyway, I don't see Jawato playing as a 3 in the B-league.

    Were you arguing Jawato as a 4 in B league? Seeing the world imports he have to deal with, I think otherwise. He’d be deployed as a wing where he wouldn’t be at such a huge disadvantage.
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    Other teams have naturalized players, who are of the same status as Asian players (only 1 per team, considered locals). Chiba Jets has Gavin Edwards (JP's NP in the Olympics), Toyota Alvark has Ryan Rossiter (NP who played in ACQ), Nick Fazekas plays for Kawazaki, Ira Brown plays for Osaka Evessa. I remember this player when Sanen played Susanoo Magic last season who is designated as naturalized player (double checked it's Nyika Williams, he's still designated naturalized player for Magic).

    Take away: if you're a top-tier team and you can have access to a player who was naturalized by Japan for their NT, then that player should be good. contrast that to other teams who tap Asian players. counterpoint is Brex who tapped Jawato but they also have Fotu (they previously had Rossiter but now transferred to Alvark).

    As I understand it, each team has a roster spot for an Asian import OR a naturalized Japanese player. One or the other.

    I think that chance of B.League making players from Middle East, Central Asia and South Asia as Asian imports is highly unlikely. Why? Time difference. Japan is ahead from these countries by a significant amount. If it is already afternoon in Japan, it's just morning in those parts of Asia. Who wants to watch a basketball game that early? Filipinos, Lebanese or Lithuanians lang siguro.

    I'm just implying that I don't think Jawato would play as a 3 in the B-league. I expect him to play as a 4 almost exclusively.

    That means he will ride into the bench for the majority of the game.

    Seeing Kobe Paras getting blown by by Thirdy in last Sunday's game makes me believe that Kobe would really struggle to keep in step with 6-foot-1/6-foot-2 wingmen specially a natural slasher like Thirdy which has an explosive jab step. But I think if Kobe is ranged against 6-foot-5 & above natural small forwards in Asian basketball, he would be able to keep in step with them.

    I've seen a few clips of Jawato. Tyler Lamb is much better than he is.

    it's not TV-friendly tho. Imagine watching all 28 teams playing in one day, you must have at least 10 TVs turned on simultaneously if all games are being shown and games are played at the same time.

    Parang NFL every Sunday. You need the NFL League Pass account and a half dozen TVs to watch all the games.

    I doubt that. It’s not even his natural position. Bearing in mind majority of the teams have 3 world imports playing the 4/5 positions, I think his coach would deploy him as a wing. But yeah, we’ll see.
