23 Rico Villanueva
24 John Wilson
27 Willy Wilson
47 Mark Caguioa
71 Ronald Tubid
30 Eric Menk
They still have the solid line-up with Mark "The Spark" Caguioa, Helterbrand, Tubid and Villanueva. They also have the young talents that can be ready for the re-building of the team, namely, Jimbo Aquino, John Wilson and JC Intal.
But Gin Kings really in-need of Big Men, especially now that Eric Menk is out and they lost Rudy Hatfield. They need to pick up an additional big guy that can fight position inside the paint.
Yancy de Ocampo, is no doubt a big guy but the question is can he improve his low-post game? He can shoot outside shot but they need to operate inside to give the small guys room to execute outside, it will be too crowded outside when de Ocampo will play outside as well. Willy Wilson is an undersized big man, we all know that, but how long the Gin Kings can tolerate the miss match that will happen in every game? He can speed up the game because he can run and his match up will be slower than him.
Guards will not be a problem for the Gin Kings, they are loaded with talented young guns and also the veteran small guys.
Overall, Gin Kings are still intact and can make another run for a championship, not to mentioned that they have a sixth man (of course the crowd) that can fire them up and play like losing is not an option.
They can end up in the top four team in the first conference, or even in the top two, we disregard the injuries that might happen anytime. Should we expect a trade in the middle of the season? Why not! for a good big man, they should consider that.
