Ababou's Chance

Ababou's Chance
Monday, February 13, 2012


It's only been a game but in 20 minutes for his new team-- the Barangay
Ginebra Gin Kings, PBA rookie and UAAP UST Most Valuable Player Dylan
Ababou's future looks brighter than ever.

Ababou > Intal
Granted, he finished with only 2 points, 3 rebounds, 3 fouls and a
turnover, but it's clear that he is a lock as the Gin Kings' small
forward of the present and foreseeable future. Once he gets his feet
wet within the Kings' offense, Ababou's high basketball IQ will take
care of the numbers. No, we don't really expect him to drop huge
scoring efforts-- we'll leave that to Mark Caguioa, Jayjay Helterbrand
and import Chris Alexander, but it's safe to say that Ababou will serve
as the team's glue guy on both ends of the court.

While some fans cried over the loss of JC Intal who was traded to BMeg
to play "Scottie Pippen/ Marcio Lassiter" to James Yap's "Michael
Jordan/ Gary David," Ababou is a definite upgrade by a wider margin
than most would think.


Yes, Ababou-prime (UST MVP) is no match for Intal-prime (which was
during his senior year with the Ateneo Blue Eagles where he could've
won the UAAP MVP had it not been for Adamson's sweet-shooting burly big
man Ken Bono, and, well, that's about it), but given their skillset,
he's the one that the Kings need to compete.

Offensively, Ababou is more "catch and shoot" or "drop pass option"
than creator. His dribbling skills are acceptable, but he's not exactly
explosive with his footspeed. Defensively, what he lacks in quickness,
he makes up for with intelligence-- always knowing where to make his
guy turn and using his considerable height and heft advantage to the
hilt.

If Rudy Hatfield were only five years younger, then yes, Ababou
wouldn't have any business logging in 20 minutes on the floor. But this
is 2012, Hatfield, while still his usual energetic self, is no spring
chicken. Ditto with hard working yet undersized forward Willy Wilson
who is strong and smart enough, but not someone you could go to when
the chips are down and everyone else's being guarded tightly.

Ababou's only competition on the Kings' roster is fellow rookie and UST
alumni Allein Maliksi-- but the PBADL MVP is bound to bleed for his
minutes for a long time until the wheels fall off of Caguioa and
Helterbrand (who, judging by yesterday's match, is now a SG on all
fronts). Ababou? Let's just say that his starting SF spot is his to
lose-- and we doubt that he'll ever allow Maliksi, Nino Canaleta and
even John Wilson to take it from him. Not after the draft snubs and
SMART Gilas benching he's had to deal with the last few years.

Sana nga makakuha na tayo ng sentro sa darating na PBA Draft at sana naman hindi na magkamali ang coaching staff sa kukunin nila. :stickwhack:

ako para sa aken hindi ko sinisisi ang coaching staff kng bakit kinuha nila c cervantes instead of dylan...
kasi nun draft tlaga kelangan natin ng player na pang 4th at 5th position... kaya tinanggal nila si dylan kasi meron na tayo tubid, at intal for 3rd spot... tapos wala pa that time si rudy kya kelangan talaga natin ng bigman... unfortunately nga lang nakuha na ng ibang team ang mga sikat at magaling na bigman... kaya sumugal kay reil... pero ngayon may rudy at chris sa team kinuha na nila si dylan for the future of ginebra...
