Chot Reyes and his Smart Gilas 2.0 Line up, whats your take?

Talk N' Text Coach Chot Reyes most likely will fill his rooster for the Smart Gilas 2.0 with Talk N' Text Players and some of his top choices from the SMC Teams alongside Naturalized Player Marcus Douthit to represent the Philippines in the next FIBA ASia Champion next year. 

Along Side Texters' Kelly Williams, Jimmy Alapag,Ranidel De Ocampo, Jason Castro, Ryan Reyes and Larry Fonacier will team up with Powerades hot shooting duo Gary David and Marcio Lassiter  and former National team player Sonny Thoss. 


“It’s easy to guess the names of the players but I have to present it to the PBA board first,” Reyes told The STAR. 

“Medyo masikip lang sa wing spots (It’s tight on the wing spots),” Reyes added. 

Most likely to be included in the  spots are Chris Lutz, Japeth Aguilar, JV Casio and Ateneo's Greg Slaughter and ......Chris Tiu hahaha. 


My Crack

Based on the initial line up, the team will be playing again with a run-and-gun style but sad to say another small ball lineup is coming to our way . 

I'm not against this guy who plays very small for their positions, for example Jimmy Playing the point guard who stands 5'9. He is a great clutch player and play maker but his size and defense is a suspect and every team who has a big guard can use this mis match to outplay us. 

If only Chris Banchero and Stanley Pringle are avaible to play for us, i'll definitely give them the Point guard Position 

Whose gonna play the wing ? 

Larry Fonacier?Gary David?Marcio Lassiter? 

Last Fiba Asia, Wing Players from the other team had an average height of 6'4  to 6'8 .  This position was evidently our waterloo last competition. With the current line up i'll bet my ass that this is gonna be our weak spot again. 

Sonny Thoss Center or Power Forward?

I still believe until this days that thoss can really play the International Style, soft touch, great footwork,above average defense and shot blocking , but he will only be effective if he will play the power forward along side douthit to form the tandem in the middle. He is just to small for the Center Position, 6'7 with a wide body, he can definitely play toe to toe with the middle eastern power forwards.
