    I agree with you... PBA is too much commercialized and only thinking about making money... its the very reason why the league was form in the first place... In my opinion, in 1970s, the league was form professionally so that the now-defunct BAP cannot summon the best players in their teams when international basketball season starts... so the BAP was forced to send collegiates because the best players were professionals and pro-players are not allowed to play in FIBA-sanctioned tournaments...

    Since then BAP becomes a fuckin' useless organization... got a little boost in the 80's... thanks to Cojuangco and his NCC program... but after that... nothing interesting except dominating SEA Games and SEABA... the origin of the league is pretty much the origin of the country's demise in International Basketball...

    Since the league started the country only qualified twice in the World Champs and failed to for the Olympics... one in 1978... only because we host the tournament... the other one in 1986... thanks to the NCC... though the 1986 RP Team did not participate due to political crisis...

    Still, TOO EARLY TO TELL. UNLESS:

    1.) Iran lost all its player in a big accident.
    2.) China will not send its team with Yao, Yi, and all its team A.
    3.) Korea will send its legends team.
    4.) Qatar wont keep on naturalizing.
    5.) Jordan back down because of a drug incident involving all its players.
    6.) A heavy earthquake will happen to Japan, and wont be able to send its players.
    7.) Lebanon will not have "the tiger" Fadi on its lineup.

    ... I think Indonesia will have a BIG CHANCE to win. but sad to say, those consequences will not happen.

    Sadly but true, they might win it again.....

    It was an embarassment for them to end up 10th place in the last 2007 FIBA-Asia in Japan. Expect them to be in full force next time around. And it doesn't look good for the other participating countries comes game time.

    We Never Know. the ball is round. its the luck of the draw. It just happen that the RP team last 07 FIBA asiad was group in group of death. Hopefully they'll not group on group of death next year. Some of the players that will represent next year has already experience on playing FIBA asiad Basketball. they already know how FIBA asiad is played and PBA now is using some FIBA rules to make some players tough on playing defense and get use on diffrent FIBA rules.

    Only local philippine newspapers are reporting that china will host fiba asia 2009, there is no official word from fiba as of presstime in regards to the venue nor reports from non philippine newspapers and websites.

    Eala mentioned in the Article that the top 3 qualifies.

    Foreign coach for national five?
    by Joaquin Henson
    The PHILIPPINE STAR
    Friday, August 1, 2008


    The search is on for a foreign coach to supervise the long-term development of the Philippine team that will compete in the 2011 FIBA-Asia Championships to determine the zonal qualifier for the 2012 London Olympics.

    In relation to the quest, SBP executive director Noli Eala yesterday disclosed plans of inviting affiliate leagues all over the country to nominate players within the age range of 19 to 23 for a tryout camp where 20 standouts will be chosen to form a fresh national pool for the future.

    Eala said in the short-term, the PBA will form the national team for next year’s FIBA-Asia Championships in China. The top three finishers in FIBA-Asia will represent the region in the World Championships in Turkey in 2010.

    “At the moment, our understanding with the PBA is the pro league will take care of the national team up to 2010,” said Eala. “In the meantime, the SBP will begin forming a young national pool so we’ll always be ready with a team in case there are opportunities for international exposure that come along.”

    Eala mentioned that in October, the Philippines has been offered to play in the FIBA-Asia Stankovic Cup in Kuwait and in an invitational tournament in Amsterdam in December.

    “Right now, we have no team for Kuwait,” said Eala. “We hope that by December, we’ll be able to send a team to play in Amsterdam where only four or five teams, including one from Russia, are invited. It’s an all-expenses-paid tournament so we’re seriously considering to participate because of the experience our national pool can gain.”

    Eala said a management committee will be set up to oversee the formation of the national team similar to the USA Basketball formula.

    “We envision gathering about 100 players for the tryout camp,” said Eala. “We’ll invite a panel of coaches to make the first cut to 45 then to 20. We hope to ask Chot Reyes, Norman Black and Tim Cone to help out.”

    Eala said the SBP is now drawing up a list of candidates for a foreign coach. Early nominees are Vlade Djurovic of Serbia and Bernardo Murphy of Argentina. Reyes, who coached the national team in the FIBA-Asia Championships in Tokushima last year, is in contact with both Djurovic and Murphy.

    A source said Djurovic and Alan Richardson of England are interested in working with the national team as a tandem. Djurovic could form, train and coach the national squad while Richardson could provide the technical know-how as a EuroLeague official and FIBA rules expert.

    Djurovic coordinated the national team’s training camp in Belgrade last year while Richardson recently visited Manila to familiarize PBA referees with FIBA rules.

    Eala said a Fil-foreign camp is also being planned in the US to flush out more talents for the national team.

    “Our model for the developmental team is the Northern Cement team that was successful in the 1980s,” said Eala. “We’re looking to keep the national team intact for a four-year Olympic cycle. That will mean closely coordinating with the PBA so that some players are deliberately left out of the pro draft and the national team could play in the PBA as a guest entry. Maybe, we could ask the PBA to exempt those who forego the draft from going under the rookie salary cap when they finally turn pro.”

    Eala said the national team program will only work if the SBP’s affiliates, particularly the PBA, give their all-out support.

    “We’re grateful to the PBA for supporting our national team up to 2010,” said Eala. “In fact, it’s possible we could also ask for the PBA’s help in reinforcing our national team for the 2010 Asian Games if our national pool isn’t ready. Our ultimate goal is to qualify for the 2012 Olympics and it will take a concerted effort to make it happen.”

    then that must be a good news for RP right?? we have the capabilities to beat Jordan, Lebanon,Korea, Taipei, etc.--> these teams are most likely to be our competition for the top 3, behind China and Iran<-- but hey! who knows? bilog ang bola(the ball is round) anything can happen.
