There was a time when our best players were only sent to the Asian games, thinking that the World Cup and Olympics were impossible dreams. Then our basketball leaders sent Cebuano Lhuiller-backed Philippine team to play a game against celebrities and lost. It was the last straw for the ones who truly cared in Philippine basketball.

This debacle eventually led to the formation of SBP and the Gilas program. Since then, the lists of accomplishments are enormous. We went to the World Cup and barely missed the Olympics. And we are now beating, on a regular basis, our former tormentors - South Korea, Iran, and China.

Kudos to our current basketball leaders for thinking out of the box and knowing that "the ball is round."

They say height is might in basketball. Well that might be true 10-30 years ago. Today's small ball concept rules basketball. Traditional tall Asian powerhouses like Iran and China are being beaten. Gone are the days of post up plays, slowed down offense, hand checking, 7 foot centers. Its about basketball IQ, fast break, 3 point shooting, stretch 4 and 5, pick and roll centers. First displayed by Mike D' Antoni's 2006 Phoenix Suns now perfected by the Golden State Warriors which rules the NBA. Even previous Team USA Men's national team only legitimate center is De Andre Jordan. Last 2014 Fiba World Cup average height was 6'4''. See link https://themissinggraph.wordpress.com/2 ... fographic/.

Game of basketball has evolved. And it is for the better.

The small-ball style fits our team really well. We have great shooters (Wright, Pogoy), quick point guards (Romeo, Castro), and athletic big men ((Aguilar, Almazan).

But I do still believe that having a traditional center down low is important, especially in clutch situations where rebounds and defense are a must. That's where the likes of Junmar Fajardo and Andray Blatche come in.

Korea just whipped Gilas. They are showing how modern basketball should be played. I won't be shocked if they win This year's Fiba Asia Cup.

As they say, the ball is round. It's time to regroup and assess the mistakes.

First, our defense was not there, or at least, the coaching staff was not able to read the opponents' offense.

Second, the Sokors shot extraordinarily well - a lot more than their usual stat. Before that game, Sokors had at least nine 3-point shots per game, and Gilas had twelve. That means, on average we were shooting threes more. It's just that some days one team just gets all the luck. You can't do anything about that.

Third, just move on and learn. I really still think we're on the right path.

We gotta wait for those young tall Fil/ Fil-Am (Sotto & Co) kids to develop and be honed as great basketball players.
