At war sa SEA region.....pero in terms of basketball.
Sana ma-defend ng U18 team natin ang korona. Naglalakihan ang mga bata sa mga kapitbahay natin, esp. Indonesians! It looks like Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia are heavily investing for their basketball program. Sa ganitong panahon, hindi dapat tayo maging complacent even if we are dominating the SEA region for several years.
PHL U18 def. host SIN U18, 75-63
PHL U18 def. MAL U18, 84-65 ( *Only fully-registered users can see this link.* )
Congrats to our Energen U18 team! 2012 SEABA U18 champs! They swept the whole tourney, beating Indonesia U18 in their last game 81-57. They also qualified for FIBA Asia U18 tournament in Mongolia later this year.
Remember that we have 3 Smart-Gilas teams:
-the main team, composed of selected PBA players. Panlaban sa FIBA Asia
-the select team, composed of selected players from Smart-Gilas 1, Sinag, PBA, etc. Panlaban sa SEABA.
-cadet team, composed of selected collegiate players.

Wow there are some people who are against the bill. Politics are everywhere! And I'm not surprised. Mga taga-CESAFI pala. Eh mga remnants yan ng nabuwag na BAP (Basketball Association of the Phils.). At si Tiukinhoy na nagbrainwash kay Junmar Fajardo na huwag maglaro sa Manila, bagkus ay mag-stay na lang sa Cebu at pagkatapos ay maglaro para sa SMC.
Mga utak-talangka talaga itong mga BAP. Kapag hindi nakapasa yan sa kongreso, sigurado iaakyat nila yan sa senado. Eh nandoon din yung tuta ng BAP na si Trillanes.
----- PH citizenship ni McGee, tinututulan

Gaya ng naging kaso noon ng Amerikanong si Marcus Douthit, may mga personalidad din sa Philippine basketball na tumututol sa planong gawing naturalized Filipino ang Denver Nuggets center na si JaVale McGee para lamang makalaro ito sa Philippine National Team.
Sa dalawang pahinang “correspondence“ na kanilang isinumite kay Hose Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, inihayag nina Atty. Baldomero C. Estenzo, Dekano ng Law School ng University of Cebu; Felix O. Tiukinhoy Jr., CESAFI commissioner; at dating national team coach Jose Lipa sa House Bill No. 6169 na may titulong “An act granting Philippine Citizenship to JaVale McGee“ na sinulat at inihain sa Mababang Kapulungan ni Antipolo Congressman Robbie Puno.
“This is not the first time that bills granting Filipino citizenship to basketball players are filed and acted upon favorably by the House of Representatives even if the recipient of the Filipino Citizenship does not possess the requirements provided for by our laws,“ paliwanag ng mga tumututol sa panukalang batas.
“Not too long ago, Mr. Marcus Douthit was granted Filipino Citizenship by Congress to enable him to play for Smart Gilas Basketball Team. Mr. Douthit, after being granted Filipino citizenship, played for Smart Gilas and thereafter, he played in a professional basketball league outside the country (China),“ nakasaad pa sa isinumiteng liham ng pagtutuol sa Kongreso.
“Did he proudly proclaim his Filipino Citizenship? No. In fact, he even came back to the Philippines to play in the professional Philippine Basketball Association as an import. How can a Filipino be an import in our own basketball tournament? Are we not the laughing stock of the sports community? Is it not time to put a stop to this practice which, incidentally, will deprive a Filipino of the privilege for playing for his motherland?“
“Citizenship is not a play thing. It entitles the recipient to full civil and political rights. Like any other right, however, the same is fraught with some obligations like the duty of allegiance to the granting state. That is precisely the reason why stringent qualifications are imposed by law such as the residency requirement, ability to speak any official languages or dialects in our country, education of minor children in public or private schools where Philippine History is taught, and others. Hence, it should not be ranted to any Tom, Dick or Harry, just because he is a good basketball player. Let not Congress trivalize the grant of Filipino Citizenship,“ ayon pa sa kanila.
Ang 7-footer at 24-anyos na si McGee ay isinilang sa Flint, Michigan, USA.
Nag-aral ito sa University of Nevada at apat na taong naglaro sa National Basketball Association (NBA) sa mga koponan ng Washington Wizards at Denver Nuggets.
Nakasama din siya nina Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul at Tyreke Evans bilang mga miyembro ng NBA all-star selection na naglaro ng dalawang exhibition games kontra PBA selection at national team noong Hulyo ng nakaraang taon sa Araneta Coliseum. – Marivic Awitan
