Thread: UE Red Warriors 2019 [Season 82]

    You'll get your chance to show if the Sons of Lualhati are for real, Rey Suerte. We've got UST later.

    Interesting sideshow there: Soulemane Chabi Yo's San Lorenzo beat Adama Diakhite's Diliman in the UCBL a couple years back, and I'm sure Diakhite is itching to get back at Chabi.

    I'm hoping Suerte can outplay both Renz Abando, while Philip Manalang can at least make life a little harder for Mark Nonoy and Renzo Subido.

    Kelangan mag-hold ang depensa ng UE kasi sure na ratratan ang UST at atat makabalik after the Ateneo handed them their striped arses over the weekend.

    Nic Abanto better be bringing it because he'll be taking on Ira Bataller and Dong Ando.

    Tama ba? If UE beats UST later tied na sila sa standings? Or ahead ng half-game pa din si UST?

    How to solve UE’s woes? Chongson says change management style

    For the 10th straight season, University of the East will not make it to the next stage of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.

    The Red Warriors just suffered a 50-84 beatdown at the hands of the Ateneo Blue Eagles, which dropped UE to a 3-9 slate.

    UE’s active consultant Lawrence Chongson did not mince his words after the game on Sunday.

    “Ako naman I came here not thinking long-term, I’ll be honest with that. Hindi naman talaga ako dapat ‘yung coach, ‘di ba? Na-force tayo. ‘Di naman forced, parang… It could be in better hands in the short term, ‘di ba?” he lamented.

    “Let’s face it — you get one-and-dones to win right away. Isang dekadang ‘di nag-Final Four, ‘yun din ang gusto naming i-solve. We want to get to the Final Four now.”

    Chongson was at the helm during UE’s last Final Four appearance, but UE booted him out after Season 73.

    Then came a carousel of coaches that saw the likes of Boycie Zamar, Derrick Pumaren, and Joe Silva take over.

    Even with quality coaches, though, things did not result in victories. So for Chongson, the problem lies in the people on top of UE.

    “Long-term… With UE’s history naman, wala namang long-term ang UE eh. They change coaches just like they change clothes. They got mga Hall of Fame coach like Derrick Pumaren, Boysie Zamar; they got the young guys, mga Joe Silva. One thing you have to give to them — they don’t stop trying,” he shared.

    “Perhaps sa akin lang, try nila instead of changing coaches, change management din.”

    Chongson’s job with UE is as an active consultant, not head coach. School owner Bong Tan was appointed to the post.

    This came about since UE’s athletic office struggled with the team’s management.

    Back in June, Silva and Chongson were no longer seeing eye-to-eye, with the latter calling the shots during their pre-season games.

    When Silva handed his resignation just a week before the season, the team’s athletic office, headed by Rod Roque, did not want Chongson as the team’s head coach. It then resulted in the Tan-Chongson partnership.

    “Everybody’s acting in good faith, but it’s just that sometimes, when you put the steering wheel on the wrong driver, chances are they’d drive you off a cliff. Not to say na I want to stay. ‘Di naman ‘yun ‘yung inaano ko rito,” Chongson continued.

    “Sa tagal ko na rin sa business na ‘to, ‘pag UE — Philippine basketball. Wala namang permanente. Bago ‘yung Tab Baldwin sumulpot sa Ateneo, nagpa-raffle din naman ng coaches din ‘yan eh.”

    For his part, though, Chongson doesn’t know if he will be part of UE’s future. All he knows is UE has to solve its problems internally before it can move forward.

    ^ Baka may punto dito si Don Lawrence.

    Grupo ni Mr Libog nagdala kay Roi Sumang sa UE, nung nagbago ng coaching staff (from Chongson to UE Legend Jerry Codinera), gusto tanggalin si Roi, goes to show you that even basketball legends probably don't make the best judge of basketball talent.

    Next si Don Trollano naman tinulungan namin, ganda ng ginawa niya sa Team B, biglang tinanggal silang dalawa ni Gian Abrigo when the Pumarens replaced Codinera. Buti na lang Leo Austria took them in at Adamson.

    Kung ako naman kasi ang UE Team Management (meron ba talaga nito, at sino-sino ba mga ito?) siguro naman I'd make it my business to hold on to the talent I have, regardless of who is coaching.

    Sa pagkakaalala ko Roi and Don would've played together for at least one full season, kung hindi pinamigay si Don. Imagine two legit PBA players in the Red and White.

    Ngayon we banked on Rey Suerte and Adama Diakhite, two very good players to be sure, but certainly not enough to make us Final 4 contenders.

    Next tanong diyan: Is Chongson recruiting? Is Bong Tan all aboard on recruitment? Does Rod Roque have a full grasp on the team or is he just letting Bong and Chong do as they please? Tapos kagaya niyan, laglag na tayo sa Final 4, ano, sisihin na naman ng Management ang Coaches and Players?

    Roque has no balls to blame Bong Tan. They refused to name Ironcoach as permanent coach when Joe Silva resigned. When Bong Tan stepped up to be head coach on paper, hindi pumalag si Roque even when he knew that Ironcoach will call the shots. Takot lang niya sa anak ng mayari ng school.

    Rest in peace Boss Bong Tan, we will miss you.
