The Blur's getting old and surely, Gilas Pilipinas is trying to unleash a beast out of someone just before Castro's final games with the national team.
Who may it be?
Before we answer that intriguing question. Of course we must know who to replace. He is Jayson 'The Blur' Castro a multi awarded athlete and known as the best point guard in Asia.
If he is the best, doesn't that mean he is irreplaceable?
He is irreplaceable, we could not deny that he's the best one in Filipino Basketball and perhaps even in Asia but Jayson's getting old.
We would never find an exact copy of the Blur no matter how hard we search to and through the thousands of islands of our nation but we could find someone who may not be as best as Castro, but has an all new definition of 'best' within him.
If there would be anyone to take over the Gilas Pilipinas as the main point guard, it would be no other than Batang Pier's pride, Terrence Romeo.
Romeo's performance as a guard is on the highest level, in terms of scoring, hustling, pace and the overall game play.
He could also be the nearest one to match what Castro's known for -- speed and agility. Castro was called the blur for that reason. Romeo may not be as fast as Jayson apparently but he has a better handle than Castro which would make him as effective. The downgraded pace was covered up with extraordinary ball handling skills -- a talent only a few Filipino players possess.
Romeo already marked his name in the heart of the international basketball especially when he did fancy basketball against the gigantic players of China. Romeo turned into a crowd favorite due to his entertaining way of finishing plays. He also once become a 2nd unit to replace Castro in international games so there is no doubt that he is the nearest one in terms of Castro's potential.
