    What Does A PBA D-League Try-Out Have In Store for Aspiring Players? A Player Shares His Experience When He Tried Out For Cebuana Lhuillier Gems

    To those who are wondering what's in store for you when you try to try-out for a PBA D-League Team, I have here a personal story from a friend of mine named Johnson Wong who tried out for the PBA D-League's First Season Runner-up team, the Cebuana Lhuillier Gems. He told me his experiences with the team, i.e. how they were treated by the coaches and on how the try-outs went on. He also told me the drills that he did with the team. Here is his story. It's in a point by point format so that you'll have an easier time in remembering them.

    • Pinasulat kmi sa listahan ung name age birthday tpos Position in basketball kung 1=point guard,2=shooting guard,3=small forward,4=power forward,5=Center.

    • Pinashooting warm up muna kmi tpos stretching.

    • Nag introduce ung mga coaches, nakalimutan ko names, tpos pinapila kmi sa sideline bali hinati kmi sa 25 . kc 50 kmi ung ibang 25 nsa kbila sideline.

    • Bali pagpumito ung coach ung first 25 sa isang sideline jogging kmi back and forth tpos pag pumito ung coach ung nsa kbila nman na 25 ung mag jogging…after that backward running tpos ganon pdin procedure pag pumito ung coach. Then buttkicks, sideways crossovers, High Knee B,straight legs, layup with no ball alternate left and right hand.

    • Tpos ng drills, hinati na kmi again…ung Point guard sa isang side, ung shooting guard chka small forward sa isang side,d2 ako sa shooting guard, then Center chka powerforward sa isang side then.

    • Tpos ayun Scrimmage na, ang unang natandaan ko napinalaro cla Illagas muna tpos mix sa tryouts. Bali pra malaman nmin kung cno mga kakampi nmin pinahiram kmi ng damit na may kulay ung size nya half lng ng damit , mkikita sa picture un sa wall ko.

    • Pang lima or anim ata ako na set ng 5 players pra sa scrimmage, d ko sure prang mga kakampi ko varsity ng NCAA chka klban bsta mix, STI na uniform ung natandaan ko, cguro aq practice player lng sa Team B UE red warriors , d ko natuloy practice ko nung may pasok na kc graduating aq Computer engineering this Sem. Nkakasabay ako sa takbuhan, pero ung ibang pasa ng kkampi ko ung bullet pass sa ilalim d ko nasalo ung iba, score ko lng isang 3point shot chka sa ilalim jumpshot na boarding.

    • Tapos ng scrimmage namili na cla ng mga may potential, pero pde pra bumalik ung iba ung mga inde napili next tryout kc 4 day tryout un.

    • Tpos nun may libre kmi pagkain galling sa knila, pansit chka slice bread yun lng hehehe.

    There you have it. I hope that this post will give you a head start if you want to try out for a PBA D-League Team. I hope that you learn something new from Johnson's personal experience. Good luck!
