Romeo Got Left Behind as Gilas Flies to Japan: 5 Things Gilas will Miss without Romeo

Terrence Romeo Will Not Play Against Japan

Surely missing one of the main scorers and the most popular player in the team will have a big effect to Gilas Pilipinas. What is it?

Gilas Pilipinas departs today for Japan for a game on November 24 in one of the two games scheduled for this month for the World Cup Qualifiers. Japan who is one of the Asian rivals of the Philippines will have one less player to think of as Terrence Romeo was not able to join the flight to Japan claiming an injury.

Romeo who has been instrumental with the national squad will be replaced by two young point guards in Kevin Alas and Kiefer Ravena and while these players are good, Terrence Romeo is just a one of a kind player that cannot and would be hard to replace.

Here are the things that Gilas Pilipinas would miss out without Terrence Romeo:

1. Scoring Burst - Averaging 17 points per game, Terrence Romeo left a huge gap in the scoring of Gilas especially in the guard position. Chot Reyes is known for his dribble-drive play and Terrence Romeo is one of the significant receivers of the play as he is one of the players who is always able to create shots and make them. Terrence Romeo is one of those players that can score at will and score a big chunk in a short period of time.

2. The Killer Crossovers - Not that it is a significant contribution but his killer crossovers are well known not only in the Philippines but in the world. Terrence Romeo's fancy moves were a regular highlight when he plays for Gilas and FIBA will surely miss it in the upcoming game in Japan.

3. Cheering Ladies - Who would forget the Taiwan stint of Romeo? He is a killer inside the court and a charmer outside. With Filipinos all over the world, Terrence Romeo is one of those players that brings lady fans wanting to watch basketball.

4. The Face of Gilas - While Jayson Castro is still the best point guard, Terrence Romeo has been the face of Gilas and had been one of the reasons while the camera is focused on the Philippines. His contribution inside and outside the court is definitely recognized and the proof of them all is the number of followers he brings with him. Romeo brings style with Gilas.

5. The Willing Shooter - Terrence Romeo is known for being a scorer, he is one of those players who is not afraid to take the big and the most critical shots of them all. Without Romeo, Gilas hast lost one dependable option.

Terrence Romeo will be missed and while we hope he would play in the next home game on the 27 with Taiwan, we are afraid that he will miss it as well.

10 Hottest PBA Courtside Reporters

It's a good thing that these ladies weren't ranked in this video. Not only will it be too difficult, it will also be too unjust.

As the games in the PBA start heating up and the country is getting all the more hotter, these PBA courtside reporters isn't at all helping and is keeping the PBA smoldering hot. PBA and TV5 has done a great job in aqcuiring these intelligent and attractive courtside reporters.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.

At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup.
