Jordan ends SMC-RP’s Olympic bid

It was a bitter pill to swallow. A real heartbreaker. It is the end for the losing team of the match.

Unfortunately the Philippine National Basketball team is still not fully equipped as they take on the road to the ‘Olympic Dream’ as Jordan eliminates San Miguel Pilipinas 84-76 in the FIBA-Asia.

SMC-RP’s ‘Olympic Dream’ didn’t really turn out as a nightmare. The Filipino cagers worked really hard and did their best and that’s a good consolation.

Maybe next time we could see a Philippine Basketball team in the Olympics. Maybe next time we could see a more competitive National team where we could see the likes of Arwind Santos, Larry Fonacier, Enrico Villanueva, Jervy Cruz and Yousif Aljamal… I say put more pure pinoys in the team right?

I never liked Chot Reyes. Don’t know why, I just do.

Jimmy Alapag was great, I was really impressed with his performance. As well as Kelly Williams. Gabe Norwood’s good but he’s still young. Mark Caguioa, Asi Taulava and Dondon Hontiveros, they’re great too. Danny Seigle didn’t get much action though, still a bit rusty because the injury but I’m still a fan. Jayjay Helterbrand and Kerby Raymundo got their share of the spotlight. Mick Pennisi, Erik Menk and Renren Ritualo didn’t get much action as well. I think I mentioned all of them.

But hey, they tried right? And let’s just hope we’ll get it next time. Keep supporting them. Win or lose.
