    I was just stating the truth.

    Yes, this is great for Filipino basketball, and it will be great for the NBA to see how fanatical Filipinos really are. I'm very surprised that no Filipino or Filipino-American has been in the NBA, purely based on the love of the sport and the large population. Maybe it's just the lack of height.

    I wonder how much these players get paid to play in an exhibition game like this? If I were a superstar like Kobe Bryant, I would just play one game contracts at various venues or form some sort of Harlem Globetrotters-like team that just plays for fun maybe only once a week. I'm sure they could get paid more than a $4 million contract that D Williams took.

    Ricardo Brown was actually drafted by the Rockets in the 3rd round in the 80's. But he probably never played.

    Also, Raymond Townsend was the last pick in the 1st round in 1978 by the warriors.

    If the NBA guys make this a playground exhibition, it may be a close game initially. The height disparity will show in the 4th quarter. The Filipino are crazy about basketball!

    I'm not Filipino, but I've never been to a country crazier about basketball than the Philippines. Playoff games are broadcast a few times a day so people can see the replays. One day soon, there's gonna be a guard that comes out of there and makes it to the NBA.

    He doesn't belong in the National Team. Why would you ask such question, sir? :confused:

    That's like me saying I would play with Eduardo Nájera just 'cuz we're both Mexican.
