Tim Cone’s Gilas, Not Just A One Hit Wonder

As Gilas Pilipinas’ newly appointed head coach for the next four years, Tim Cone is determined to steer the national team towards success, and he believes the crucial ingredient for achieving this is continuity. The accomplished Barangay Ginebra coach shared his perspective on the sidelines of the PSA Awards Night at the Diamond Hotel in Manila.

He highlighted a common challenge faced by Gilas in the past—lack of consistent continuity.

Speaking passionately about the importance of continuity, Cone specifically pointed to maintaining the same pool of players for several windows of play as a key component of the program. Recognizing the unique dynamics of international competition, he aims to build a cohesive and consistent team that can adapt and grow together over the next four years.
