Media from press asked Stephen Curry — What advise can you give to Gilas Pilipinas Team to compete in FIBA Asia?
The 2015 MVP Stephen Curry advised Gilas Pilipinas Team “To have confidence to yourself, have fun, enjoy the practice that play for the country and leave it all the floor because its such a short window of time that you have to realize your goals.”
Those all words can inspire our Gilas Pilipinas Team to play hard and do everything for our country.
During off season there’s alot of changes in PBA Teams especially in Barangay Ginebra Team. From the head coach, assistant coach and even players. The management are doing their jobs just to have a good deal to different teams to have a good player. New coach — new system!
Since the Ginebra team have an idea about the Triangle offense when former Ginebra coach Jeff Cariaso introduced that play to them. The players have the opportunity to improve their skills and adopt the play with the help of their new coach. Coach Tim Cone is the master of ‘T’ offense.
The Ginebra team started their practices last August and everyday is a learning process to the team. Luckily they have enough time to master the new system before the opening of the 41st season in the PBA. Ginebra’s practice is twice a day, morning and in the afternoon.
As I observed, the crowd favorite team most of the players are improving their skills, from dribbling, perimeter shooting, pull up jumpers and drive to the basket. After the practice some players doing extra effort to continue to improve their skills like Sol Mercado practicing shooting the three, Chris Ellis work out for the pull up jumper and even Japeth Aguilar.
“TALENT is nothing without HARD WORK. Never underestimate the POWER of PRACTICE.”
It’s a one day Road Show!
