    He's a born scorer tho... he needs to go back to his instincts and roots and bring back his Mamba mentality like when he scored 100 pts way back when he was in grade school.

    Correct but him playing the point in KBL..it might backfire to him if he doesnt channel it the right way, he is backup to dash maybe the spark plug off the bench will do wonders for him..

    I have the same concern re Oftana sliding right into Troy’s spot. But he’d never regress into simply being a stretch 4. Dude has got too many closeout counters and likes putting the ball on the floor. I’d be more concerned if Coach Chot puts him into the dunker’s spot and the corners. He’s too adept a slasher he should be playing from the extended elbows and top of the key.
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    aside from money , does playing in japan beneficial to the growth of a player, Ravena brothers play for 2 of the worst teams in Bleague , Paras played for the cellar dweller while Dwight's old team and current team were both in the bottom of the standings only Bobby Ray's team has a respectable record, for me if players want to go overseas Korea is a better choice as the teams that signed Abando, Belangel and Abarrientos look better on paper only the Samsung Thunder was a losing team the team that was supposed to sign Navarro, though Dwight is still very good despite playing for a bad team. I hope other asian league and other mid tier european league will open its door for our players, turkish league , israeli league , i remember Pringle, Cstan, Eric Menk , even Matthew Wright were among the players who played in europe before playing in the PBA

    Depends on what kind of player you are. If you're a really talented guard, then you'll get opportunities, whatever league. The PBA has produced talented guards.

    However, when it comes to tall wings like Oftana, Navarro, and Malonzo, or tweeners like Balti, you need to be in the right situtation in the PBA to develop properly into your international position, like Ferrer and Arvin playing 3 in Ginebra and NorthPort, Malonzo as a tweener in NorthPort, and Oftana playing 3 with Yeng. The lack of size in some teams, and some coaches using just height to determine position, might mean that Oftana and Navarro-like players might play 4, and Balti might have to play as a traditional 5 instead of as a tweener. These types might have a better chance of playing their natural positions in SoKor and even Japan due to the presence of imports.

    If guards, any league. If tall wing or tweener, better abroad (outside SEA). Plus, availability for windows is more likely.

    We'll see if Roosevelt Adams gets used as a stretch big this time.

    Apparently KBL officials aren't satisfied with Belangel.

    My guess is as good as yours.

    Its still preseason so too early to judge. But Im guessing Belangel had an advantage because of his familiarity with Tabs system and playing with Kouame. He took advantage of Kouames gravity to make his plays.

    I wasnt impressed by both in Gilas. Belangel seemed the steadier guy. RJ looked at times to be more talented but was too risk taking for the role. We'll see in the real games if he can lead his team to wins.

    Heoball says that RJ Abarrientos could be a favorite to win KBL Rookie of the Year: https://twitter.com/heoball/status/1...doJBWYqcg&s=19

    Still haven't heard anything about Rhenz Abando though. He's the player I'm looking forward to the most out of all the pinoy imports in KBL. His style of play fits the Korean style of basketball, a very good movement shooter plus he's probably more athletic than almost all local guards in the KBL.

    i think the ravena bros stats are gonna dip this season. both their teams signed high-caliber players at their position (kai toews at shiga, kosuke kanamaru at san-en). their teams could perform better than last season though
