Please do not under estimate these players the way they play in PBA.
They make entertainment in 80 million people in this country alone.
Who knows what will happen if they will be given a chance to NBA.

My comparison is only likeness and similarity but not exact.
Don't react to much, you might kill the dreams of millions of people in the country who wishes a PBA player to play in NBA someday if given a chance.

Please be professional in posting/replying this topic.
