    Yes. True.

    But there are a lot of factors against this:

    1. Money - Self Explanatory. They would also care where will they live. Unless they have relatives overseas already. And ofc, the way of living. Etc.

    2. Family(Parent) - 12-13 yrs old is really a kid. I dont think many pinoy parents will let their 13 yrs old go overseas. Unless they(the parents) will go too. But that also gors back to point no. 1. Will the parents work overseas to provide the money needed for their 13 yrs old kid.

    I have relatives who are 12-13 yrs old. They are really really still kids who need parantal guidance.

    Again, I am happy with that idea. Happy for Competente cause he was able to.

    But it is more complicated than it seems

Al..But how about the ones who had a growth spurth late or just isnt tall enough
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    true, its really complicated specially for a country like ours who value close family ties. actually training young overseas does not only apply to basketball, our gymnasts like carlos yulo also started early on.

    further its a huge step for a pre teen to transfer to another country, the culture might overwhelm him

    Yeah. Try lang ng try.

    We will eventually break it.

    We are getting closer and closer.

    I dont think BRP had a choice. Fault of America's poor healthcare system to be honest.
