Smart Gilas

(Apr 11, 2010, 11:00 am)straight forward Wrote: Good luck to Smart Gilas, I like the idea! With that devotion and determination you should gather a good NT that could be available to get to world class level. patay-butiki, how do you think, Philippines are lacking skills, experience, professionalism or it's more about physical conditions (lack of height for example?) or it's both?

thanks straight forward. skills and professionalism are there. me thinks it's the lack of international experience. lack of height has been a perennial problem, but this is being remedied by the recruitment of a naturalized player (american most probably), as well as half-filipinos from the states and elsewhere.

basketball is the no. 1 sport in the philippines. players here are treated like celebrities, much like NBA players. if you guys know of a 7-foot european center who is willing to help the Philippines in international play, just let me know. the Philippines is still in the look out for such player. and i assure you, while the nominal salary may not be as competitive as in the NBA or the euroleague (about $120,000-150,000 a year) the intangibles (dedicated, well-trained fighthing team, plus the celebrity perks) more than outweigh the nominal salary amount.
