3rd PBA player for Smart-Gilas on hold
By WAYLON GALVEZ
September 21, 2010, 7:14pm
MANILA, Philippines— Although the PBA has given the Smart-Gilas Pilipinas an option to pick a third player, Serbian mentor Rajko Toroman is not hurrying to get one as he’s still trying to determine the status of Fil-Am guard Marcio Lassiter.

“For the moment, no name,” Toroman said.

“We’re just looking what will happen with Marcio, who is having treatment in the US (dislocated hip),” Toroman added.

On Monday, the PBA Board of Governors unanimously approved the request of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), allowing Asi Taulava of PowerAde and Kelly Williams of Talk ’N Text to join the national team for the Asiad in Guangzhou, China.

However, James Yap, the reigning PBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) of B-Meg Derby Ace and the third player requested by the SBP, has begged off due to personal reasons. The 6-foot-3 Yap is also recovering from a polyp operation.

The PBA though gave Smart-Gilas a freehand to tab a third player, who should first accept the invitation and then get the approval from his mother team.

Smart-Gilas sources mentioned as possible replacement for Yap include Rain or Shine guard Sol Mercado, as well as former national team players Dondon Hontiveros of San Miguel Beer and Renren Ritualo of PowerAde.

But according to Toroman, it’s too early to tell who they get, adding that it’s possible actually not get take a third player.

“We’ll know if Marcio is OK in the few days, then we will decide. It all depends on Marcio, we have to solve that first. It depends on our decision, on Marcio’s availability if we’ll get a third PBA player,” said Toroman.

“Marcio needs two weeks treatment, but this kind of treatment he can do in Manila. That’s the problem, he must return here.”

Apology, appeal from Marcio
By: Joaquin Henson (The Philippine Star)

MANILA, Philippines – Fil-Am cager Marcio Lassiter said yesterday he was advised to undergo two more weeks of rehabilitation for misaligned hips by Los Angeles Lakers physical therapist Judy Seto and reiterated his appeal for understanding from Smart-Gilas after apologizing for his absence without leave.

Lassiter left Manila for San Francisco without seeking permission from either Smart-Gilas team manager Frankie Lim or coach Rajko Toroman to be examined by doctors for nagging pain in his left knee last month. He was diagnosed by Dr. Matthew Rivera of the Rivera Chiropractic Group in San Carlos and Dr. Stephen Lombardo of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles to be suffering from patella tendonitis and quad atrophy. The cause was traced to misaligned hips. Lassiter was referred to Seto for treatment at the Select Physical Therapy in Los Angeles.

For leaving without permission, Lassiter is being fined $2,000, deducted from his paycheck over the next six months. He will also be fined for every practice he has missed since Aug. 23. Smart-Gilas official Butch Antonio gave Lassiter a deadline of Sept. 27 to be in Manila, “ready to practice” and said the cost of airline tickets for his return will be deducted from his salary over five months. Additionally, Antonio said Smart-Gilas will not pay for Lassiter’s medical expenses in the US.

Lassiter said Seto’s recommendation will mean continuing his therapy until Oct. 1 or five days after the deadline set by Antonio.

“Ms. Seto has evaluated my progress and determined that I am not ready to be released,” said the former Fullerton State guard. “She feels that I will need to continue the therapy for two more weeks. I realize that this interferes with the deadline I was given to be back in Manila. However, I feel this treatment is imperative and will definitely make an impact on my game.”

Lassiter said he couldn’t get rid of the pain in his knee and sought help from specialists in the US. “At first, doctors told me to just strengthen my knee but I later found out my body was never aligned to begin with,” he said. “I did all that strengthening just to make my body worse. I saw help from the Lakers doctor and I’m paying for my own medical bills. I’m the one who looks like the bad guy because I went AWOL but I’ve apologized for the miscommunication.”

Lassiter said he’ll be ready to play in the Asian Games this November.

“The pain is far less than when I first started therapy,” he said. “The major problem was my hips were not aligned. My knee felt so bad during the Jones Cup and Beirut tournament that when I would run, it would hurt more. Thankfully, I don’t have this pain in my knee as much as before. I think I’m making very good progress and I think I can make the Asian Games. My therapist told me it’s impossible to recover from four months of being injured in just two weeks of therapy. Yet she feels I can be back in time for the Asian Games ready to play, which is my goal.”

Lassiter said he predicts Smart-Gilas to keep improving with every tournament.

“We, as a team, have grown up a lot and we’ve made very large strides into getting where we want to be,” he said. “We still haven’t proved anything yet but I truly believe when the time comes to qualify for the Olympics, we should be in good shape.”

On Toroman, Lassiter said it took a while to adjust to his style but he’s convinced the Serbian’s system works.

“All my life I’ve had American coaches who had different styles,” he said. “This is the first I’ve played for an international coach so it took a long time to adjust to his style. He has a good system that he implements and it works. Can he coach? Yes.”

Lassiter said at the moment, the countries to beat in Asian basketball are Lebanon and Iran.

“We need to win the Asian championship in 2011,” said Lassiter who singled out Golden State guard Stephen Curry as the NBA player with a style resembling his. “That will secure our ticket to the Olympics. My main goal is to qualify for London in 2012. That’s my focus and also to help contribute towards that goal. So far, I feel I’ve helped in many different ways, day in and day out for the team. When I recover from my injury, I expect to continue to do so.”

Lassiter said he foresees settling in Manila with his US-born Filipina girlfriend Jerlyn Pangilinan and their 18-month-old boy Montae Izaiyah. “If the time is right and the situation is good, then, of course, we’ll live permanently in Manila,” he said. “As of lately, my family is living with me in Manila and don’t mind having them staying on for good.”

Lassiter’s mother Alexandria Eshabarr is Filipina and she has first cousins – his uncles and aunts – who live in Manila.

Asked to name the PBA players he’d pick to reinforce Smart-Gilas, Lassiter said that’s Toroman’s call but he dreams of building a dynasty with his so-called “Big Three” – Gabe Norwood, Sol Mercado and himself. “You got Sol at the point, Gabe at the three and me at two-guard,” he said.

Let us all support the NT this coming Asian Games 2010 and beyond! 8)

Our current roster:Image

*roster can still change


Ilan ba ang composition ng Final line-up sa Asiad? 12 or 13? :?: :?:
Base sa listahang ito, nasa 15 na sila lahat. Pag pinasok si Dondon magiging 16 na. Sino-sino kaya matatanggal dyan? :?: :?:



this is the by laws of FIBA basketball

4.2 Rule
4.2.1 Each team shall consist of:
 No more than twelve (12) team members entitled to play, including a captain.
 A coach and, if a team wishes, an assistant coach.
 A maximum of five (5) team followers who may sit on the team bench and have
special responsibilities, e.g. manager, doctor, physiotherapist, statistician,
interpreter, etc.
4.2.2 Five (5) players from each team shall be on the playing court during playing time and
may be substituted.
4.2.3 A substitute becomes a player and a player becomes a substitute when:
 The official beckons the substitute to enter the playing court.
 During a time-out or an interval of play, a substitute requests the substitution to
the scorer.

-----------------------------------------------

some players are definitely gonna get dropped.
I think the players do realize from the start that they can get scrapped once the final roster is formed.


ok, thanks for the info.

The VENUE:
Guangzhou Gymnasium

Capacity: 10,000


*During the 2006 Asian Games held at Qatar, the Philippines national basketball team, winners of four gold medals in previous Games, did not participate in the basketball competition due to their suspension by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). The political interference and conflict between the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) and Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) was the cause of the suspension.

We have often drawn attention to Smart Gilas' failure to respect the POC deadline to submit the RP team roster. Now there is a big problem!
about 6 hours ago via web


=============

I don't know what RN meant via this tweet.


I read this morning in the news that SBP was warned to submit RP-Gilas roster by September 15 and now it's been extended to September 30. Failure to do so means Gilas will not be sent to the Asian Games...

ramos and ababou over douthit and lutz? there's gotta be a mistake. :shock:

no offense meant to ababou, but lutz brings more to the playing court. douthit's case is a no-brainer. maybe some paper works needs to be ironed out. 8)

Smart Gilas names 12-man roster to Asian Games
09/22/2010 | 08:27 PM


Share
No new players have been added to the official lineup of the RP-Smart Gilas to the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.

Not at the moment.

Beating the strict deadline imposed by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC), the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) formally submitted its roster for the Nov. 12-27 meet Wednesday, with skipper Chris Tiu and Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) reinforcements Asi Taulava and Kelly Williams spearheading the team.

Also in the list are Mark Barroca, Mac Baracael, Dylan Ababou, Japeth Aguilar, Jason Ballesteros, JV Casio, Greg Slaughter, Aldrech Ramos and Marcio Lassiter.

Last Tuesday, the POC working committee gave the SBP until 5 p.m. of Wednesday to have its men’s basketball team roster submitted at its office on the third floor of the Philsports Arena, or face the possibility of missing the Asiad.

The lineup will already be forwarded to the Guangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee (GAGOC) along with the rest of the delegation members comprising the Philippine team.

But last-minute changes in the team can be made if the need arises, such as injuries to players, opening the possibility of adding another player – be it from the PBA or any of those included in the training pool of the national squad.

“We can do that," national coach Rajko Toroman admitted. “I think we have to inform the organizers just before the team manager’s meeting about a possible change in the lineup because of injury."

“The tournament is two months away, and we don’t know if something will happen to one, two or maybe five players," he said. “Somebody might get injured, so there is really the possibility of changes (in the lineup)."

Of the players included in the official list, the 6-foot Lassiter is the one who remains doubtful after dislocating his hip during the team’s stint in the Stankovic Cup. The Fil-American guard is now in the U.S. undergoing rehabilitation.

Toroman earlier said there is no need to tap one more player from the PBA should Lassiterbe healthy enough to suit up for the Asiad.

Otherwise, he’ll be eyeing Rain or Shine’s Sol Mercado and Gabe Norwood, Powerade’s RenRen Ritualo, and Dondon Hontiveros of San Miguel as possible alternates.

A long shot for a possible slot in the team is foreign-bred Marcus Douthit, assuming he’ll be able to acquire a Philippine passport before the Asiad. His application for naturalization is already being discussed by the Justice Committee of the House of Representatives.

A separate accreditation will be applied by the team should a late addition arise, according to RP-Smart Gilas deputy project director Butch Antonio. This will be coursed through the POC working committee and to the GAGOC. - KY/RCJ, GMANews.TV
