Elmo Magalona: "I think size matters but not entirely, it depends on how you work with what you have."
Jeremiah Lisbo. "Oo naman, kasi syempre pag matangkad ka—especially sa basketball—kapag defense, malayo nasasakupan mo and marami kang nagagawa."
McCoy De Leon. "Oo naman, in general. Pero meroon ding ibang factors na nag ma-matter din."
