The Philippines used to domiante Asian basketball, now the 'yellow' teams do and this leaves a lot of soul searching for the Filippinos. They have a good pro league and basketball is their favorite sport, no one is happy with the recent results.

LakerRaider is really just a Flip who is pissed that they can't beat anybody at basketball even though it's their favorite sport so he's trying to lump them in with the other Asians to make himself feel better.

I mean really, you don't exactly read the "Manila Times" for its breaking news.

1) Pump your brakes, I'm not Filipino.

2) You seem personally offended by this article, why go after me??? Calm down man.

The title of the topic sucks. Should be "Columist thinks Philippine basketball has no hope". Makes sense for idiots like Mamba to completely ignore the article and make his statement about every asian.

This team needs to sign AAP immediately. With his 40" hops, NBA range, above-average dribbling and ability to occasionally block shots, he'll be the Asian MJ.

MAKE IT HAPPEN, MITCH!



(Btw, for those who say they've never met a good Asian hooper.. one of my friends is Filipino/white and can ball like nobody's business. Nice hops, great dribbler/passer, excellent shooter, excellent shotblocker, etc.)

Wow, stereotype much? Your comments rubs you off ass a totally clueless jackass and possibly a racist bigot as well. Asian players have plenty of "skill". It's natural talent they lack. The black man is simply faster and jumps higher. Don't confuse skill with talent. The Asians make up for their lack of athleticism by working on the skill departments, like shooting and ballhandling. Some of nastiest dribblers I know ball in chinatown, but none of them can hop for shyt

Leave it to a Kobe fan to make himself look like an ass..... never fails..

I usually have the ability to play up to any competition level I've gone against. basically if i could find better players elsewhere I would go there instead of the gym I'm at currently. at my gym now i play against sd chargers players, mexican semi pro, and some div 3 players plus other guys who are all decent. i'm not saying i'm the best guy at my gym, but i don't think i lack natural talent. plus my dad was on an olympic basketball team so i got some watered down genes. I just don't put in the time and athletics aren't encouraged in asian culture. if anyone disagrees i say they just don't know what asian culture is because i definitely do.

i had the opportunity to watch philippine pro basketball in manila

it is competitive within itself. probably they could play against decent college div 1 teams but not the best.

the filipinos love the game and adore the nba. seems like they are bandwagon-kind-of-fans. whoever is the champ is generally the favorite

they have patterned their style from the nba. unfortunately for the philippine teams, the rest of the countries have gone back to the basics of hard-nosed, good fundamentals and share-the-ball 1970s type hoops.

in international play they cannot beat the koreans or the chinese. it is a national embarassment for the country to realize that they cannot compete and that their "stars" dont shine all that brightly outside the philippine game

they should have realized this when usa scubs come over and play on the teams and average 40 points. guys who cant even make an intermediate cut in the summer leagues.

all that being said, it is difficult if not impossible for other countries to realize how much more superior the talent level is in the nba.

in international play, it is a matter of the nba players realizing that it is the team game that will win games. coach k has the team on the right track after the embarassments in recent years in international play

for the filipinos, it'll be awhile til they can even think about experiencing this level of play


in the usa, filipinos will give the 6 ft and under leagues some great comp; not many have stood out in college however...

the Philippine is suspended because of basketball politics...The Basketball Association of the Phil. was expelled by the Phil. Olympic Commitee for sending mediocre teams to international competitions...The FIBA sided with BAP even if BAP is the one that is really at fault...

I thought that they were suspended because they refused to send a team to a tournament or refused to send a team to qualify for a tournament??? I could be wrong.
