Richard del Rosario joins Cone as an assistant coach and is anticipated to bring vital support and insight to the club. Furthermore, Alfrancis Chua’s hiring as team manager provides a significant management presence with his work as San Miguel Corporation’s sports director.
This decision resulted from a collaborative effort inside the San Miguel Corporation, with President and CEO Ramon S. Ang playing a pivotal role in guiding the team. The corporation’s dedication to Philippine basketball can be seen in its club and national team participation.
The Asian Games, which begin on September 23 in Hangzhou, China, will be a brutal battleground for Gilas Pilipinas. The team’s fifth-place result in the previous edition in Jakarta, Indonesia, demonstrates the competitive competitiveness of Asian basketball. The competition will begin three days after the opening ceremony, with the Gilas Pilipinas against Brunei.
Basketball lovers around the Philippines will anxiously await the official roster for Gilas Pilipinas. The team’s makeup will be crucial in deciding their performance at the Asian Games.
It remains to be seen whether Tim Cone’s coaching stint is a short-term or long-term commitment. During the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, his prior position as a transitional head coach resulted in a dominant performance by the Philippine squad. Whether he remains in charge of the national team after the Asian Games will be determined by various criteria, including performance and plans.
Finally, Tim Cone’s selection as head coach, Richard del Rosario’s assistance, and Alfrancis Chua’s managerial skills display a solid commitment to enhancing Gilas Pilipinas’ performance on the international scene. The forthcoming Asian Games will be a litmus test for the squad, with supporters keen to see if they can build on their previous accomplishments and reach new heights under Cone’s guidance.
