MANILA, Philippines—TNT team consultant Mark Dickel has drawn up a system suitable for his undersized lineup, but he still rued the glaring size difference between his team and Barangay Ginebra was still a tough bind.

The KaTropa lost to the Gin Kings 90-79 in the PBA season opener in Dickel’s first game running the offense.

Although the team had some semblance of success going up against the big guys of Ginebra in 7-foot Greg Slaughter and 6-foot-9 Japeth Aguilar, there was still the factor of getting banged up throughout 48 minutes.

“We’re king of out of position, no matter who we put in now,” said Dickel Sunday at Philippine Arena.
