Remy Martin, Jordan Clarkson, Andray Blatche PAGLALARUIN sa Gilas ni Yeng Guiao

Remy Martin is a possible addition to Gilas Pool,
said by the veteran coach Yeng Guiao. Guiao revealed that they have been trying
to get in touch with Filipino-American Remy Martin, who recently starred for Arizona State
in the NCAA. “We’ve been trying to get in touch, but so
far we haven’t had any formal communication. But Coach Ryan (Gregorio) is trying to get
in touch, because we want to give those guys a chance to make the team if they are as good
as advertised,” explained Guiao. “I’ve seen him on YouTube and saw glimpses
in the US NCAA, and to me he looks good. But you cannot decide on taking in a player
based on YouTube videos. We want to invite him here and see how he
can blend in with the team.” Guiao said, however, that like Clarkson, they’ll
need to confirm if Martin is eligible to play for the Philippines before they extend an
invite to him. “What we like about Remy Martin is he is proud
of his Filipino heritage.” Guiao said the slot of the Filipino is secure
given how Gilas will need size against Italy, Serbia and Angola in the World Cup. “We all saw (in the Asian Qualifiers) that
we need size. Andray has been with the Gilas program for
a while now, and based on the matchups I’m seeing, we will have a tough time against
the European teams if we don’t have Andray,” said Guiao. “And he deserves to be on the team because
he brought us there to the World Cup, so I believe his spot on the team is secured already.” Guiao also stressed that he intends to retain
the same pool he used for the final window of the qualifiers. “If there are changes, it will only be one
or two players. But it’s more or less the same. Chemistry is hard to build. Our last two games (against Qatar and Kazakhstan)
we could see how the chemistry among the 14 players was starting to build already. That’s why I’m very hesitant to disrupt the
chemistry. Knowing that Italy, Serbia and Angola are
high-caliber teams, Guiao said he and the coaching staff are currently plotting ways
how to attack the defense. “We will need to make our outside shots. When you play teams like the teams in our
group, which have size, we will have difficulty penetrating and getting opportunities inside. The only way to open that up is if we make
our three point shots,” said Guiao. “We also need to speed up the game. If we will play a deliberate style against
big and long teams, it will be tough for us. The bigs need to make outside shots, and that’s
one thing we need to emphasize, because the players might need to adjust their skillset
for international play.” “That’s why Andray Blatche is important for
us is because he can post up and also shoot the three,” he added. “With our limited time, it’s tough (for the
players) to develop new skills. But with the existing skills, maybe we can
sharpen them more.” Guiao remains optimistic that NBA player Jordan
Clarkson of the Cleveland Cavaliers can suit up for the national team again on the world
stage. “I am keeping my hopes high that he will join
us,” he said. “His team didn’t make the playoffs so he’ll
be free to join us. He also indicated himself that he wants to play. When we had him in Indonesia (in the Asian
Games), he said, ‘Let’s go to the World Cup, let’s play in the World Cup.” Guiao said the only issue with Clarkson is
if he’s eligible to play. “It’s out of my hands, but the SBP and [SBP
chairman emeritus Manny V. Pangilinan] MVP are silently working on it. We just need to leave it to them.” If Guiao had his way, he would want the national
pool to start practicing two or three times a week by mid-June. He also said he would like to have tune-up
games against five or six European teams that play similar to Italy, Serbia and Angola. “You need a lot of mental preparation, because
we aren’t used to playing against those kind of teams,” said Guiao. “It depends on the availability, but if we
plan to play tune-up games it should be against squads that are on the same level as the teams
in our group.” The national coach even welcomed the idea
of playing exhibition games with Australia and New Zealand for practical reasons. “Australia and New Zealand are close to us,
instead of having to go to Europe to play the same brand of basketball we really need
to expose ourselves to,” he said. “On the practical end, that’s what I’m thinking. And also gaining back our goodwill for both
sides, trying to restore our relationship with Australia and trying to put (the brawl)
behind us. We’ve all learned our lessons and I’m sure
both countries have learned from that. I think enough time has passed to forget about
that incident. We just need to cover and erase that memory
with a positive one. It’s practical for both teams.” The SBP has received several invitations for
friendlies from other nations who qualified as well, but Guiao reiterated: “the question,
though, if the invitations won’t come in conflict with the schedule of the PBA.”

  1. kung hindi mkasabay c martin s fiba world 2019,,,,sna bigyan nla ng pansin sa southeast asian game this coming december….pra mkilala sa asia…ipasok n c sotto at edu..pra my exposure…ravena at ricci…at paras…..cla n ung pinakabata…hindi ko sila iniidulo..pero kailangan bigyan cla ng panahon at mapansin ng karamihan sa asia..n nkikipag sabayan s mas nakakatanda veteran s knla..

  2. Mali priority ni Yeng. Gilas needs height more than anything hindi another point guard. Mas mabuti pang kunin si Edu kaysa kay Martin. Lalamunin ni Castro at Romeo ng buhay yang si Martin. Maybe 5 yrs from now he will be at par with them.

  3. Gilas need to be a 3 point team shooters in order to be a superior team with others, this is the only way we can separate our and put a mark on our team, otherwise it will be hard to go any further, got it!.
