Hell Yeah! let them teach him some lessons!
Heck no! he just wants to play for the NT..it's his right!
I may have fall to the downside I guess due to the hopes about his development but same issues has been brought about by other posters as well.
What really my point is, too many people here are trying to hyped him yet again. And with that game last night it gets even higher. I said in the PBA thread he really impressed me in the offensive side which is really remarkable but I'm still waiting up to the time that he really plays the so called veterans of the PBA. I'm not really just an expectant person now.
No disrespect to anyone.
And thanks for a non-brutal comment. Haha.. I lik that people commenting with grace and fluency even it is negative on me.

japhet's game varies from poor to good to great depending on the opposition and the game pace. in wuhan against bahrain he played great thats because bahrain's tallest guy is just about 6'7 and a lot more skinier than japhet and the game was pretty much open court. against china he played like 3 mins and was shooled every second by wang zhi zhi.
toroman's decision to piroritize williams and deocampo at the 4 position is very wise and undertsanble if you were following the gilas program since he joined the program. there was even a tournament i think that was in dubai thou im not sure where hes father peter aguilar was watching live. according to reports in one of the games there peter his own father lost his cool because japhet just couldnt get the rebounds and they were losing the game because of it.
so considering all those things i dont think toroman should be blamed for japhets lack of playing time. even japhet doesn't hold bad blood against toroman for it why should anyone? remember before tha start of the wuhan games japhet stated that if toroman is retained as the coach of gilas he would choose to stay with gilas.
im a fan of japhet aguilar. i believe he is the next dominant big man of the philippines following the likes of patrimonio, paras, limpot, jerby raymundo etc. i also think for the philippines to improve its strong 4th place finish sbp need to continue the gilas program and they need to heavily invest on the new breed of filipino giants (slaughters, gian chiu, fajardo, van opstal) headed by japhet aguilar.
I'm still hopefull that japeth will become our dominant powerforward for next national team. I really hope he is given a defense coach and rebounding coach. He also needs to learn proper post moves. He must turn into a Bosh not a Durant which he is forcing him self to be become that is his idol. Durant cannot defend well, and rebound, bosh if more balance. And for our national team we need a bosh type of player.
i think this is true for Japeth and in a way, to Lutz too.
