The PBA Draft signals the start of the PBA calendar. Every year, some of the best amateur hoopers flock (because we have yet to see Bobby Ray Parks suit up) in one place so they can hook up with new cliques. But because of allegations of corruption, there is a movement to abandon the … Continue reading Fantasy Booking: The PBA Preseason
I had typos on the left and unfinished sentences on the right… And that’s how I published my 2017 PBA Draft review. So with this in mind, let’s talk about the winners and the losers of the 2017 PBA Draft. Anyway, apart from typos, unfinished sentences, and wrong grammars, let … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft Winners and Losers: Who had it better!!!
So blogging like a goof from a random watering hole in Robinson’s… Galleria (which means I doing this remote), this is my sort-of-live 2017 PBA Draft blog. Before anything else, let me keep things in perspective for all of you. San Miguel does need it… if you disregard Leo Austria’s rotation… … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Live Results/Review
With the 2017 PBA Draft mere hours away, I have a story in my head. Yup, I’m fantasy booking this one! The first pick of the 2017 PBA Draft is now with the San Miguel Beermen. Kia Picanto – which means “masochist” in whatever land that agrees with what they got in return – … Continue reading Fantasy Booking: The 2017 PBA Draft Third Pick!
It’s fitting for the PBA to end their 2016-17 season with nearly 55k strong shouting like madmen and I guess at the end of the day, the right team won. Yeah, the Barangay Ginebra Kings showed that they are the hungrier team and for some reason, their yearning to score their first ever title defense … Continue reading Zero in: Meralco’s Failed Title Bid
So it’s now official. Tadah. SMB gets Kia gets Number 1 pick of the 2017 PBA Draft Ronald Tubid Rashawn McCarthy Jay-R Reyes First Round Pick of the 2019 PBA Draft So what happened to Gabby Espinas, Yancy de Ocampo, or hell… even Keith Agovida for that … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Trade Approved… and WHY KIA WHY!?!
In a few hours from now, the second instalment of the Ginebra versus Meralco series will conclude. It’s an awesome tale of badassery and the lack thereof at times. Like when Ginebra failed to call a timeout with a lot of seconds remaining in Game 3… or Jared Dillinger’s constant shot hesitations. … Continue reading Ginebra versus Meralco Game 7: For All the Marbles!
Blackwater coach Leo Isaac is in a bind. He ONLY has the third pick of the 2017 PBA Draft and he needs to wait for San Miguel and NLEX to choose between Christian Standhardinger, Kiefer Ravena, and Jeron Teng (because Kia is like a rebellious, dreamless teen at the moment) before they … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Blackwater’s Buy or Sell – Teng or Jose?
I am not a fan of Chris Gavina’s coaching. I think he mimics the “no superstar” design of Yeng Guiao. Although… this may not be entirely his fault. Christian Standhardinger had contractual obligations with the ABL’s Hong Kong Eastern Lions and this was the reason why he couldn’t come to … Continue reading Chris Gavina has the right to enjoy what he’s doing.
So I guess it can’t be helped. Kia Picanto has traded its pick to the San Miguel Beermen but as much as it “pains” them to drop Jay-R Reyes, Keith Agovida, and Rashawn McCarthy from their lineup, it feels as if the trade will commence if they give up more assets. An … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Bearable Kia-San Miguel trade options
