Double R for Gilas: Ravena + Romeo Tandem Sounds Good- The Blur

Jayson Castro believes he is leaving Gilas in good hands

When Jayson Castro drained that nifty floater against Japan in the home game of Gilas Pilipinas, it reminded us that YES, Jayson Castro is still the best point guard in Asia. However, as he is already in his 10th year in the PBA at the age of 31 years-old, only Father Time can tell until when we're going to witness the greatness of Castro, both in the PBA and with the national team.

Fortunately, the possible successor to the Blur's throne as Gilas' main guy is already preparing for his ascension. His name is Kiefer Ravena, the super rookie of the NLEX Road Warriors, the Phenom. Even before joining the PBA, Kiefer Ravena has been playing for the Gilas Cadets. So he is no longer a stranger to the international competitions as he even tried-out for an NBA D-League team before deciding to come home and play for his beloved country.

Aside from the Phenom, Terrence Romeo would be another guuy who could take Castro's spot as Gilas' leading scorer. After all, he scored 22 points in a quarter against the might Korea, remember?

Double R for Gilas: Double the Trouble for their Opponents

Even Jayson Castro has agreed that the tandem of Kiefer Ravena and Terrence Romeo would benefit the national team especially in the upcoming third window for the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers which is scheduled to take place this coming June. And the good news is, Terrence Romeo has earlier promised that he would be ready by then he has already skipped the entire opening conference of the PBA due to a knee concussion injury.

The Blur also added that Ravena's willingness to learn will help the latter in the future especially with the fact that both Castro, Ravena and Romeo have some similar aspects in their games: explosiveness, high basketball IQ and the ability to create scoring opportunities for their teammates. Just a few more fixes and Ravena will very well be the biggest problem that Gilas' opponents will be trying to solve.


Of course, Kiefer Ravena and Terrence Romeo must be included in the Gilas line-up that will play against Chinese-Taipei and Australia. And both guys must be ready and healthy to bang their bodies against the giants. Fortunately by then, Jayson Castro will still be there to guide his apprentices. After all, he is the best point guard in Asia so he knows what he's doing and he certainly knows what he's saaying.

But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got.

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
