My Gilas Twelve

In a couple of hours, Gilas coach Chot Reyes will unveil his final roster who will do battle for the lone sport reserved for the SEABA champion. I’m anticipating that the lineup will be fodder for every basketball conversation for the next 6 weeks.

That being said, why wait? I’m starting the debate with my picks for the Gilas Twelve.

THE SURE-BALLS
Andray Blatche. Junemar Fajardo. Jayson Castro. Terence Romeo. Calvin Abueva.

Every time Blatche is in our lineup, he automatically becomes Gilas’ best player  (even out-of-shape Blatche). There is no local player who comes close to what the Kraken can do on the court while The Beast has become the team’s heart and soul. The Blur is still the best point guard in Asia and Romeo, his heir apparent, is already making waves internationally.

THE SHOULD-BE-THERES
Troy Rosario. Raymond Almazan. Allein Maliksi. Matt Wright.

Rosario has the potential to be the most versatile local big man ever, Almazan provides height and quickness at the PF position (against Asian teams, PFs are less likely to be bruisers), Maliksi provides shooting, Wright provides athleticism and court smarts at the SG position.

THE COMPLEMENTARY PIECES
Japeth Aguilar. Kevin Ferrer. Ed Daquioag.

Aguilar is insurance, just in case Almazan gets starstruck. Kevin Ferrer is insurance for Rosario. Daquioag is the young star in training.

NOTABLE CUTS
Mac Belo should have made this team. Rosser-Ganuelas too. Scottie Thompson should have been considered. Same with RR Garcia.

MY PROJECTED DEPTH CHART
Center - Fajardo, Aguilar
PF – Blatche, Almazan
SF – Rosario, Ferrer, Wright
SG – Abueva, Maliksi
PG – Castro, Romeo, Daquioag
