2010 PBA DRAFT: WHAT THEY NEED - SAN MIGUEL BEERMEN


The team is a superstar goldmine. On paper, they have the best lineup in the PBA. They are deep in all five positions and most of their players can play multiple positions.

However one can’t deny that San Miguel is such an unstable squad. Even if all of them are superstars, all of them can play heavy minutes in some games while bench warming in other games. Hell, even their coaches are expendable!

Chemistry is an issue no draft pick can solve.

This is certainly one team that any rookie shouldn’t be a part of because this is automatic CAREER SUICIDE!


TEAM STATS:
PHILIPPINE CUP: SEMIFINALS
FIESTA CUP: TOURNAMENT FINALIST

DRAFT PICKS:
SECOND ROUND: FIFTEENTH

CURRENT DEPTH CHART:
TOP 5: ALEX CABAGNOT, DONDON HONTIVEROS, ARWIND SANTOS, JAY WASHINGTON, DORIAN PENA
RELIEF: JONAS VILLANUEVA, JOSEPH YEO, DANNY SEIGLE, DANNY ILDEFONSO, MICK PENNISI
OTHERS: OLSEN RACELA, DENOK MIRANDA, CHRIS CALAGUIO, LORDY TUGADE, MIKE HOLPER

WHAT THEY NEED:
Hmmm… what could a rookie do in this team? Since Sam Eman vacated their squad, their third team lacks a center. While finally picking James Sena is a possibility, perhaps they can get HANS THIELE, MEL GILE, MARK CANLAS, JR GERILLA, ROBERT SIMPSON, MARLON ADOLFO, and JAMES MANGAHAS or whoever is still a name in the second round. I guess it doesn’t really hurt a rookie’s ego that he is left off since unlike James Sena’s debacle, this pick is a late second round pick. Gerilla is playing well in the rookie camp while fellow FEU Tamaraw Adolfo was a name during his UAAP days. But why hurt a player’s chance to succeed? While Chris Calaguio could have retired, do they actually need another player to befriend Lordy Tugade and Mike Holper in the reserved list? Olsen Racela is about to retire in a year or so… maybe they need to check out a fourth option???


Siot Tanquingcen is on the outs. Battling for the spot is either Ato Agustin or Gee Abanilla. They like to experiment… eww… but do they really need to do these to their players? They seem to look seriously expendable… but not the Stallone kind.

There are a lot of teams out there that are desperate for players. Maybe they can give some for these less fortunate squads.

Game over.
