  • Grabe naman korea. Mas magaling pa sila sa olympics at FIBA. Nawawalan tuloy ng prestige ang Asiad. Anyway, laban pa din. Ready to play naman si Doithit.
  • Pwede rin bang pag-usapan dito yung potential hosting ng 2019 FIBA Worlds?

    FIBA 2019 World Cup hosting by the Philippines?

    Possible venues:
    Mall of Asia Arena (Pasay City) - 18,000
    Smart Araneta Coliseum (Quezon City) - 22,000
    PhilSports Arena (Pasig City) - 10,000
    Philippine Arena (Bocaue/Santa Maria) - 51,000
    New Cebu City Coliseum (Cebu City) - 20,000 (?)
    Ynares Center (Antipolo City) - 12,000
    Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum (Naga City) - 12,000
    La Salle Coliseum (Bacolod City) - 12,000

    Alternatives (or with only a remote chance):
    Cuneta Astrodome (Pasay City) - 12,000
    Filoil Flying V Arena (San Juan City) - 5,000 (is expansion possible?)
    Rizal Memorial Coliseum (Manila City) - 8,000 (in need of reconstruction)
    Hoops Dome (Lapu-Lapu City) - 8,000
    KJC King Dome (Davao City) - 50,000 (under construction)

    If ever the Philippines get to host it, a stadium for each group would be possible (as there would be 8 groups for the first time in 2019).

    This venue division is also possible:

    Bulacan, Antipolo, Pasig, Bacolod, Cebu, Davao, Naga, Manila/San Juan/Lapu-Lapu = one group stage each

    Pasay and Quezon City = knockout rounds, with Final at Pasay (for "appropriate for a Final" reasons) or Quezon City (for "historical" reasons)

  • Gilas allowed to replace Blatche with Douthit for Asiad

    The Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee stood firm on its decision to block Andray Blatche’s entry to the Philippine team for the Asian Games but allowed Marcus Douthit to come in as a replacement, along with Jimmy Alapag who’s taking over from the injury-hit Jayson Castro.

    The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, through the representation of Philippine Sports Commission chairman Richie Garcia and SBP consultant Moying Martelino, also got an extra concession from IAGOC, allowing them another change in their lineup during the team managers meeting on Sept. 19.

    With these words from Incheon Thursday night, SBP president Manny V. Pangilinan declared Gilas Pilipinas will fight on in the Asian Games.

    “It’s not bad,” said SBP vice chairman Ricky Vargas on the news they heard from Garcia and Martelino.

    “The players have been in a long journey and they want to play. Majority of the Filipino people want us to play. And so Mr. MVP said ‘laban,’” said Vargas.

    The SBP officials believe Gilas Pilipinas also stands a good chance to win a medal with Douthit, the original Gilas naturalized player who’ve been into two FIBA Asia Championships.

    “Douthit’s long been with Gilas. He’s been practicing with the team even with the entry of Andray Blatche. Douthit brings chemistry to the team,” said Vargas.

    The SBP people thought with their strong message sent to the Olympic Council of Asia leadership, they’re able to get an acceptable compromise with IAGOC.

    “They stood pat on their decision, saying Blatche is definitely out. But they softened a bit through the representation of Richie (Garcia) and Moying (Martelino) plus the letter of appeal of MVP,” said Vargas.

    “I think the compromise is good. We’re afraid Douthit would not be allowed,” Vargas also said.

    The SBP vice chair said they were really seriously considering to withdraw their participation from the Asiad.

    “If not for the players and their confidence, we would have second thoughts (on joining),” Vargas pointed out.

    Other possible changes in the lineup could be made with injuries to Marc Pingris and Paul Lee.

    "If they say their okay, then baka wala ng palitan," said Vargas.

    Ranidel de Ocampo, Junmar Fajardo, Japeth Aguilar, Gabe Norwood, Jeff Chan, Gary David, LA Tenorio and Jared Dillinger are the other players in the lineup of the team that will try to improve on the sixth-place finish of Team Phl in Guangzhou, China in 2010.

    The country has not won an Asiad basketball medal of any color since the Philippine Centennial Team, under coach Tim Cone, copped the bronze in the 1998 Bangkok Games.

  • ONE MORE TIME | Jimmy Alapag back on Gilas Pilipinas lineup for Asian Games

    Philippine national men’s basketball team captain Jimmy Alapag, after a scintillating performance in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, has received plenty of calls to rethink his retirement from international duty.

    The veteran guard isn’t about to let his teammates – or the rest of the Filipino people – down.

    With naturalized NBA player Andray Blatche deemed ineligible for the Incheon Asian Games and several other Gilas Pilipinas players suffering from various injuries, the player they call the ‘Mighty Mouse’ is set for one last tour of duty as he helps the Philippines end a 52-year gold medal drought in the tournament.

    “With all the issues regarding Andray’s eligibility and injuries to some of the guys, I felt it was only right to go and fight with my brothers one more time,” Alapag wrote in a text message to

    “It’s always an honor to represent our country. I’m just thankful to get one last go around wearing our flag on my jersey.”

    The country has not won the gold medal since 1962 when the national team was backstopped by players like ‘The Big Difference’ Caloy Loyzaga.

    Since the open basketball policy was instituted and professional players were allowed to compete, the Philippines’ highest finish in the tournament was a silver in 1990, when the country sent its first all-pro team to Beijing.

    Alapag believes, though, that Gilas Pilipinas’ inspiring play in the World Cup will serve the team well when they compete in Incheon later this month.

    “I definitely think we have a bit of momentum going into Korea,” he said. “The important thing will be to sustain it and keep our focus on getting to the medal round. “

    He added that Gilas can bring home a medal, if it can continue playing on the same level it did in Spain.

    “It will be a tough tournament, but if we bring our best, we give ourselves a good chance to come home with a medal,” he added.

    The banged up Philippine team will have to overcome some health issues, with several players operating at under 100%.

    Among the players who have incurred injuries during the World Cup were Blatche, Marc Pingris, Ranidel De Ocampo, Jayson Catro, Paul Lee and Jeff Chan.

    Even Alapag suffered a scare himself after a bad landing late in the team’s game against Senegal in the World Cup, but the 5-foot-9 guard shook it off to play a significant role in the Philippines’ first victory on the world stage in 40 years.

  • What about Robin Lopez on Gilas Team?

    Portland Trail Blazer Robin Lopez says he's willing to play for Gilas as naturalized player

  • ^ di matigas si Lopez.. swak lang talaga si Blatche basta wag point-center ang laro.
  • sa rebounding at mid range shooting malakas si lopez pero si blatche talaga mas advantage. but still good to know foreign players wanting to represent Gilas Pinas!!!
  • Anong oras yung finals?
  • If hindi lang pumutok sa tres ang USA mas maganda sana laban. Ganda ng umpisa ng serbia bigla naglaho nung sunod sunod ang tres.
