read One Piece 922 on line - Kaidou is a dragon. A very impactful appearance. I thought he didn't have an ability due to his inability to get himself killed, but I guess suicide is only worth it for him if it's done by testing the limits of his own endurance. That makes sense when I think about how he tried to become Pirate King. He is not entirely uninterested in his life; he's probably like a berserk warrior bored by how weak and peaceful everyone else is, so he is always trying to test the limits of his power against extreme odds and strong enemies. He reminds me of Thorkell The Tall in Vinland Saga! Kaidou is a lot more extreme, though. His endplan is probably to attack the government in another summit war, but this time in the attacking side. Crazy. I'm not sure if he is even stronger in Dragon form, but this is likely to be so. In any case, having the ability to fly and possibly breath fire would make him into and even bigger threat. Kaidou looks so badass. Given that dragon pokemons are probably the strongest type, I wonder if that's part of why Kaidou's considered the strongest creature. Kinemon seems to have come up with an okay plan, but I can't see that working when they fight Kaidou without miracles, given his power. And on top of that is Jack, who's a beast in his own right as well. Wonder what Zoro's fate is going to be, I can see him somehow both messing the plan up and being the saving grace as result of that.

Gilas Pilipinas defeated Chinese Taipei, 93-71 in FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers

PBA 4th Time MVP June Mar Fajardo scored 22 points, on 9-of-12 shooting, to lead Gilas Pilipinas, while Jayson Castro added 15 points. Terrence Romeo and Andray Blatche chipped in 14 and 13 markers, respectively. Gilas was flat to start the game while Chinese Taipei got off to a hot start, establishing an early 12-4 lead. The Philippine team made a 7-2 run to make it a one-possession game, but it was the home squad who took the advantage after the first quarter, 19-16. A June Mar Fajardo layup to inch Gilas within six, but Cheng-Ju Lu made a triple to extend Chinese Taipei's lead to nine, 30-21, with 7:21 left in the second period. But Terrence Romeo answered with a three-pointer of his own to cut the lead back to six again. After a few back-and-forths, Gilas was able to tie the game at 33-all after a fastbreak layup from Romeo.



Chinese Taipei answered with a trey from Yi-Hsiang Chou before going on a dry spell as Gilas uncorked an 8-0 run -- all coming from layups -- to take a five-point edge, 41-36, 1:37 remaining in the half. After a free throw from the home squad, Matthew Wright knocked one down from beyond the arc to put Gilas on top, 44-37, at the half. Gilas remained in control of the game in the third and went up by a baker's dozen, 60-47, after a layup from Castro at the 4:50 mark. After a few possessions, two triples and a dunk from the Chinese Taipei squad pulled them within six, 66-60. Norwood hushed the crowd with a baseline jumper to keep Gilas in front, 68-60, heading into the final frame.

The momentum remained with the Philippine team as they extended their lead back to 13 points, 74-61, after a three-pointer from Wright. A 5-1 run from Chinese Taipei trimmed the deficit to nine, 75-66, 6:30 left in the game. Both teams then exchanged baskets but a Romeo basket kept Gilas ahead, 80-69.

Chinese Taipei had a tough time on defense as the Philippines kept its foot on the gas pedal, widening the gap to 88-71, two minutes to go, after two free throws from Pogoy. Then Norwood pretty much put the nail in the coffin with a three-pointer on the next trip down to give his team a 20-point lead, 91-71, sealing the game for Gilas.

EXTRA DRIBBLES

- Chinese Taipei assistant coach Charlie Parker on Thursday said he was concerned with the support Filipinos in Taiwan will show for Gilas Pilipinas. True enough, almost a quarter of the Heping Gym comprised of Filipinos, some who even bought tickets from scalpers at a higher price just to see Gilas play.

- In the other Group B match, Japan shocked Australia, 79-78. Chinese Taipei and Japan will meet next to determine which team will advance to the next round.
