  1. matuto na tau..d ntin kelangan ng mgagaling mgdunk..kailangan natin SHOOTER SHOOTER SHOOTER.. sana yan ang idevelop sa team at sa mga players ng PBA at Philippines Basketball in general. Di tau malalaki tulad ng ibang bansa. Pansin nio what separates us from other Asian Teams???r.. Lahat sila Mashhooting, binabawi nila sa shooting ang kakulangan nila sa Height.

    1. Kabayan, nanghihinayang ako sa Gilas. Alam mo yun, nandun na e. Sayang. Lagi tayong malas. I think their present program naman is working, pero talagang minamalas lang sa huli. Saka tama ka, makakatulong rin kung may consistent perimeter shooters tayo.

  2. You could surely see your skills within the work you write. The world hopes for much more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times follow your heart
