Kung wala namang masamang balak, huwag din ma-phobia masyado sa mga condos...and kapag may foods pa dun, it should even be a most welcome development.

Magkaka-bugbugan, este, aberya lang naman yan depende sa kung ano ang una mong kakainin. :)

Waaahh....Sama ako sa kainan! Este, deep discussion with the female courtside reporters.

I think the Pasig/ortigas area will be convenient for most of us, like 5ftcarrot, jem_bengzon, Joe scoundrel, Canmaker , Cubao, etc.

Atty. Ghostrider - sorry, pero maraming ortigas eh...hahaha

May nakapag-bulong sakin that sa Gerry's Grille daw (libreng plugging ah), may promo na 7 bottles of beers + 1 big pulutan (i think 8 or 9 to choose from) for only P380. So for roughly P1,600, may 28 beers & 4 pulutans na tayo niyan. And for P3,200, medyo wasak na tayo nun. :)

What do you guys say of a May 13 (Tuesday) 6:30pm tee-off at Gerry's Grille-Metrowalk (pack-up mga 9:30-10pm). If anybody knows anybody from Gerry's Grille for discounts, much better. :)

Hey guys! May 13 is 5 days from now. Are we all set with our "eyeball event" on that night? As long as we can get a handful of people attending then we should be good. 7-8 pax should already be a dandy. A good night for a few drinks and a bit of chitchat.

Im really excited to finally meet some of my Hoops-Scoopers in the flesh. Will announce the final venue in a few days since no one here (me included) can confirm the existence of a Gerry's Grille outlet in the Ortigas Center area. Basta sure na that it'll be held in the ortigas Center area. Maybe Jay-J's Inasal along Julia Vargas Ave. can also be considered.

Any suggestions?

Feel free to suggest, fellas. Democratic naman tayo lahat, im sure. Vote nalang: who wants it on a Friday night? How many wants it on a Saturday late afternoon? Majority wins.

Hindi rin maganda yung may hahabol o nagmamadali. And also to those that has to worry about their skeds the following day. Here is my scenario: i've got a knockout game this Tuesday in the D-League at 4pm sa Meralco Gym. Im also scheduled to have surgery to remove bone spurs in my left ankle/heel next Friday.

Assuming we win on Tuesday, for sure our quarterfinal game will be held on Thursday. And assuming we do win this Tueday, i will resked my surgery to a later date na. So im also thinking na it'll be best if we just move our get-together from this coming Tueday to a Friday or a Saturday instead. Approve??

I'm really sorry, Coach - and salsa and everyone - but I didn't log back into Gameface until this morning and so couldn't make arrangements for tonight :( Believe me, I feel really bad since I seem to have spurred the change in plans, and have been hoping to join one of these "multilateral" get-togethers.

Still, it's good that tonight still seems doable for others, and two get-togethers/excuses to drink are better than one, so I hope you all have fun and that I can meet you all someday!

Thanks sir. The surgery performed on me was practically like drilling 3 holes (using a drill gun) on my left heel with blood squirting out of 'em. And believe me its triple the pain as compared to the surgery i had last August to re-attach my ruptured achilles tendon. Im on pain-killers na niyan but the pain is killing me instead.

Sana lang after nito mag-heal eh i can feel comfort na whenever i walk. The past several months have just been, although bearable, simply terrible. Para kang naglalakad na may mga maliliit na bato sa sakong. Damn!

Thanks s_c. Pinag-iigihan ko talaga yung pag-push ng stroller ng daughter ko para when the time comes, she'll tiyaga pushing my wheelchair naman. :)

1 week of antibiotics means 1 week of no booze for me. Just when i saw in the newspaper at the clinic where i had my surgery earlier...Chilis offering drink-all-you-can Margaritas for only P300 (unless i read it wrong).

Had completed 4 days of 3x a day antibiotics dozes for my bone spurs surgery (barbotage), and 3 more days to go. 9 months ago, it was a ruptured achilles tendon and now its 7 bone spurs..all of these on my left foot.

All of these injuries. Could be coz of old age. :) But what about Kobe? Derrick Rose? But hey! These guys are pro athletes while im just a pro in my own world. Anyway, these things you can also wear like a badge of honor. Battle-scarred ika nga :)

If only my boss pursued owning a PBA franchise once again...i would've mulled hiring/drafting Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire. Sa monicker palang patok na :)

On how to play/utilize him..thats the One Hundred Million Peso question.

ironcoach
05-30-2014, 08:46 PM
An NBA franchise for Two Billion Dollars!!! Of course the Milwaukee Bucks was sold for "just" $500+M a few weeks ago but 2 Billion??? You can't even begin to count 2 Billion Pesos, what more kung dollars pa!

But it could be the sign of the times. Locally, the Purefoods franchise was purchased for only P600,000 back in 1988. Then Tanduay (Lucio Tan's Tanduay and not the Elizalde's), who joined the PBA in 1999, had to cough up P60,000,000 in purchasing its PBA franchise. From Six Hundred Thousand Pesos to Sixty Million Pesos in 11 years! Napaka-gandang investment sana if we only knew then.

And today in 2014, a PBA franchise has a price tag of P100,000,000 (thats One Hundred Million Pesos). But the question is, lumakas ba talaga ang business side ng PBA (marketing, ticket sales, advertising revenues, TV deals, etc.)?? Or sadya lang talagang bumaba ang halaga ng peso?

Anong sa palagay niyo?

06-10-2014, 04:29 PM
Whats up? Whats up?? Where did everybody go? :)

Hey! U guys still remember "The" Arvie Bringas?? NCAA Juniors multi-MVP some years ago? Well, i was, somehow, able to find/locate him after (i confess) i've totally forgotten about this kid as if he got scratched-out from the face of the earth.

I confess (once again) that i was one of the many "suitors"who pursued this man-child more than 5 years ago, for him to play (and study, of course) for that university that i've coached once upon a time. I will also confess (na naman) that i did offer him TWO MILLION PESOS (over 5 years) excluding scholarship, board & lodging + meals..and a car.

Well, history will tell you that he didn't accept my "offer" and he went to DLSU instead (i wonder why). He later on dropped-out of the Archers' lair and resurfaced with the Tams of Morayta (i can remember he spat at, was it Justin Chua??) a couple of seasons later. He then had a forgettable stint in the D-League before totally getting himself out of the radar (parang MH370 lang).

To make an already long story shorter, i was able to track him down in nis native Bataan and i've invited him to come practice, rehab, train, get in shape, clear his mind..AND LEARN TO LOVE PLAYING BASKETBALL ALL OVER AGAIN. The kid is (still) only 24 years young so making a comeback isn't that far-fetched. Only this time around, i will only be paying him in "peanuts".

Oh by the way, we did talk about that "spitting incident" and on how Justin Chua's career had panned-out since then.

1. This Finals is gonna be a dandy although i see Miami winning "close games" the rest of the way. LeBron is simply at the top of his game..too experienced for the Spurs' young guns and too young for the Spurs' veterans.

2. Showbiz answer: Pacquiao will add luster to the PBA's entertainment angle and appeal, not to mention marketing & attendance.

From a "purely" basketball standpoint: its outright ridiculous & absurd. Blasphemous even.

My boss felt that the timing wasn't right yet for our company to make (once again) that jump into the big league. Tingnan/saksihan niyong maigi yung kalbaryong sasapitin ng mga newly-accepted expansion teams in the next couple (or 3) of seasons and you'll know what i mean.

Classic example na nga itong 2 year-old Globalport team diba? Dumaan na nga sa kanila ang mga tulad nina Willie Miller, Gary David, Eric Menk, Jay Washington, Cabagnot, Terrence Romeo, Ronjay Buenafe, RR Garcia (these players don't come cheap, if i may add) these past 6 conferences pero...

Im not saying that they're not doing it right..all im saying is that "hindi siya ganun kadali".

Palampasin pa natin ng a few more years. Malay natin by that time eh mas maganda na ang mga concessions na ipa-pagkaloob sa mga expansion teams to be able to form a more competitive roster di tulad sa panggi-gipit dito sa mga huling tinanggap na expansion teams.

ironcoach
06-16-2014, 12:08 PM
Gawin niyo nalang modelo for a while ang PBA D-League. In a short span of 3 years (7 conferences), but already, there are around 20 teams/entities/organizations that have came...and went. Disbanded.

Why?? The most logical, and primary reason that i can think of or surmise, its too much of the NLEX team. Nobody can win (well, Blackwater was able to steal 1) because the league didn't protect the "other" teams from NLEXism. Add to the fact that most of them were either simply mismanaged or had lofty/unrealistic goals to begin with.

The PBL had (almost) the same script some years back with Harbour Centre and what happened after? Teams disbanded/folded and that 28 year-old league, teeming with traditions and history just died. It fell by the wayside and today, 3 & a half years later, NOBODY CARED...NOBODY LEARNED.

Are the NLEX guys happy and proud of their achievements inspite of winning multiple titles in an inbalanced tournament?? Of course they are! Yan ang mantra na nagpri-prevail sa society natin ngayon...BY HOOK OR BY CROOK!

Magagaling man ang iilan sa atin na manalo at manlamang...MAHIHINA NAMAN SILA SA HISTORY!

Just saw a glimpse of the order of (PBA) rookie draft positioning for next season (i believe it will be held sometime this August) and i immediately noticed that in the first round alone, the Barako Bull team owns the #4 #8 & #10 picks.

Now if i were to (fantasize and) convince my boss into rejoining the PBA anytime soon, i sincerely believe that taking the route of buying the Barako Bull franchise (instead of expansion) is definitely the way to go (im not in any way insinuating that BB is selling-moreso that its largely believed to be a pseudo/dummy team of another company).

If the (now) going rate for a "new" PBA franchise is being pegged at One Hundred Million Pesos (P100,000,000.00), i'd say we start the bidding offer (for the BB team) between P150 to P175 Million Pesos then probably peak between P180 to P185. Rather than building a whole new team from scratch, i believe BB has some solid foundations to build on.

Guys like Willie Wilson, Denok Miranda, Willie Miller, Mick Pennisi, Mark Isip, Dave Marcelo, JC Intal, Bonbon Custodio, and even Carlo Lastimosa & Jeric Fortuna. Remember how in last season's rookie draft when BB owned the (was it) 5th, 6th & 7th picks but surprisingly traded them all away? I say wow!! A very bold move indeed.

But assuming our fantasy purchase (of this franchise/team) really does occur, i can assure you that i'll be able to pull rabbits out of those hats (draft picks). :)

I heard that the D-League had recently struck a deal with IBC-13 to televise the games beginning next season. Whether my boss or i were unhappy with regards to last season's lack of media exposure?? Since the birth of the D-League, my boss and i have pledged our support to Comm. Salud and the PBA with regards to the D-League. We've vowed to stay both vigilant and patient as far as the league's growth is concerned.

We were the last team/franchise standing in the PBL when that league eventually folded at the end of 2010 and we were educated since that time on the importance of support & perseverance lalung-lalo na brand new league ang PBA D-League. Its that puro-kabig at walang tulak mentality thats been killing most "fields" in our society. Yung mantra na "together we stand, divided we fall", our organization doesn't want to leave that kind of an imprint in Philippine sports at the end of the day.

With regards to "the new league", wala akong feedback at wala rin akong balita sa mga kilos nila. Ang balita ko rin eh yung Cebuana Lhuillier, Jumbo Plastics + my team, we'll be staying-put lang sa D-League. That should be enough reason for some measure of optimism.

My wife took a picture (on TV) of my cameo appearance in Paul Lee's "Kwentong Gilas" segment and i have to admit, humbly of course, that i did looked kinda good in that shoot. But maybe its just a matter of being telegenic. :)

That episode of Paul Lee's younger/struggling years growing up, it brought tears to my eyes. Its common knowledge that this kid is like a second son to me and from what he was then, and how he turned out today..im just so proud.

With regards to your last question, i personally believe that its not only LA Tenorio that Paul should easily be able to bump off the Gilas 12-man roster for the FIBA World. Guys like Alapag, Fonacier & David, well truthfully, at the end of the day, what really matters is what Chot Reyes thinks. Not you or anyone else. And definitely not me. :)

I see a lot of the "dribble-drive" sa early offense ng Spurs then if winding down na yung clock and still wala pang open or comfortable shot available, they end up with the high screen/roll.

May pagka-freak zone yung defense nila and they funnel yung offensive player sa middle (shaded area) wherein either Duncan and Splitter eh naka-abang.

Yung offensive & defensive philosophies ng Spurs thrive sa culture. Its like yung pag-culture ng wine: habang tumatagal eh mas lumalabas yung lasa. You've got a coach and some key pieces that have been there for the long haul at naipa-pasa o naiba-bahagi nalang yung aral o mga tendencies sa mga pieces that surrounds the core.

Hindi naman mahirap gayahin o kopyahin yung ginagawa ng Spurs "on the court" at sa sideline. Kadalasan, lalo na dito sa atin, ang mga "key" na off the court movements at decision-making ng mga namumuno ng isang koponan ang pinaka-malaking factor or hadlang upang matupad o makamit ang desired discipline, culture at system.

You've got teams changing coaches (players) as if it were running out of style. Sa college level pa nga lang dito sa atin eh may mga teams na in 1 or 1 & a half or 2 years eh palit ng palit ng mga coaches. Ang dapat talaga natin maintindihan sa ganyang kalakaran, eh yung management talaga ang INCOMPETENT at kung tutuusin, sila itong dapat palitan. And also sa professional league natin, meron ding mga nagmimistulang circus ang pinapatakbo at hindi basketball team. Kaya ayon, walang nangyayaring maganda.

Difference: the Mavs doesn't play defense. Need i say more? :) Similarities: yung tiyaga at pasensya sa pag-execute ng halfcourt set. Nung tinalo ni Carlisle si Spo, i believe its Spo's rookie year palang as coach. Eh nitong huli, lumitaw rin yung experience ni Pops as compared to Spo.

Pero in my personal opinion, it seemed to me na nagkaron ng internal problem ang Heat probably after Game 2 ng serye. The final scores in each game from games 3-5 can attest na parang the fight was taken out of the Heat already. Nitong newsflash kagabi nga about LeBron opting to become a free agent could be an offshoot of that "silent turmoil".

Well, for one eh kapatid ni Pato (kelangan pa ba ng introduction ng taong yan?) si Ryan. Secondly eh diba parang pinai-rate ng MVP Group yang si Ryan from SMC/Purefoods/B-Meg nung mga panahon na mainit si RG dahil nga nagpapanalo ang B-Meg at nag Coach of the Year pa nga yan diba?

So posible na mahabaan at malakihang kontrata ang napirmahan ni RG for him to fly the SMC coop ika nga. If i were him at that time, at ako pa itong sinusuyo ng isang mala-higanteng kumpanya tulad nga ng MVP Group, lalung-lalo pa kung kanang-kamay at trusted pa mandin ng may-ari si utol..mahina na yang 10 years 100 million peso deal ang nanaisin ko bago ako mapapa-payag.

So kung sa taong 2010 nagsimulang hawakan ni RG itong koponan ng Meralco, at kalagitnaan palang ngayon ng 2014, nangangahulugan na at least limang taon at kalahati pa ang kailangan niyong tiisin o tiyagain bago ninyo makamit ang matamis at mahalimuyak na pagbabago. :)

Whats wrong with Meralco? Hindi ko huhusgahan si RG, o sino pa mang kapwa ko basketball coach pagdating sa pagco-coach. Pero bilang GM or bilang director of player personnel, assuming nga na si RG ang taga-pamahala dyan, i can honestly say that he's doing/had done a lousy/terrible job. The only GOOD move done by this franchise in 4 & a half years was drafting Cliff Hodge. Yung ibang mga moves na nagawa nila can be described as questionable at best. Kahindik-hindik.

Pero kung su-swertehin naman sila next season, eh posibleng magkamit sila ng isang manlalaro na talaga namang masasabi mong "very lethal". :)

It may sound funny (or cheap) to share here that my Boracay Rum team is now here in Bayugan City (near Butuan City) upon the invitation of their city mayor to be 1 of 4 teams thats participating in their fiesta pa-liga.

Aside from us, the University of Visayas backstopped by 3 "imports (6'11, 6'7 & 6'5) handled by Donbel Belano, a Cebu selection composed of a 6'6 "import, ex-pro Stephen Padilla & RoS draftee Gayford Rodriguez and another "puro-hugot" selection of Rob Labagala, Hans Thiele, Ardy Larong, Rob Sanz, Brian Heruela, Jojo Tangkay & former FEU import Christian Sentcheu, comprised the 4-team field.

A championship purse of P250,000 is at stake in this mini-tournament, which in ligang-labas linggo is termed "Panalay". The 1st runner-up purse is P150,000, 3rd place: P100,000 and 4th place: P75,000. In short, walang uuwing luhaan. :)

Our plane fares cost us P110,000 though so at worst, minimal expense lang just in order to be able to give my team a bit of a competition kaysa puro nalang kami practice these past 3 weeks. But then again, after getting clobbered in our 1st game vs the Rob Labagala-Hans Thiele squad, we were able to bounce back in our next 2 games (both games played in a day-11am & 7pm) to barge into today's championship game sked at 4pm.

What an experience though. A pretty much quiet town (there's nothing here-no Jollibee nor Starbucks), was brought to life everytime there is a game. Games are jampacked and they go wild everytime my team throws souvenir items (volleyballs, frisbees, towelettes (courtesy if Tanduay/Boracay Rum-and even bottles of Cobra Energy Drink) to the crowd.

Its just another testament on how basketball-crazy Pinoys are mas lalo na in far-flung areas in our country.

^ coach, if you're given the choice, who should be removed (from the original 12) to make room for Paul Lee?

With all due respect sa "original 12" since sila naman ang tanging dahilan kung bakit nakabalik sa FIBA-World ang Pilipinas after 36 long years (tayo ang nag-host ng World Basketball 1978 kaya na-automatic yung particpation natin), and also just to be able to accomodate your question which is to include Paul kaya so-sobra ng isa sa line-up, SA OPINION KO LANG NAMAN..si LA Tenorio ang odd man-out dyan for me.

I would've gone with Jimmy Alapag dahil sa edad at sa height pero i just couldn't sacrifice his "big heart" and of course, his marksmanship from way downtown. Another case to be considered is Gary David..owing to his lackluster performance, not only in the FIBA-Asia Manila and in the FIBA-Asia Cup Wuhan, but also in the last couple of conferences in the PBA. Very erratic na ang laro niya pati narin yung once-deadly perimeter shooting niya.

But then again, siya parin si "El Granada"- anytime pwedeng pumutok. If Marcio Lassiter hadn't begged-off, i believe he was the ultimate replacement sana for Gary D.

Kaya lang naman si LA ang na-pinpoint ko is because your question was about trying to squeeze Paul into the mix kaya hindi narin ako lumayo sa position na suits the entire arsenal of the man everyone calls "Ang Angas Ng Tundo". Jason Castro is Jason Castro, Jimmy is Jimmy..Fonacier, Chan & David plays the "wing" position. Norwood (pwede ring Dillinger for Gary D pero hindi naman kasali yan sa question mo) is Gilas' premier perimeter defender (we can also make a case there for Pingris), Blatche/Douthit, RDO, Japeth, Ping, JuneMar (sayang talaga si Slaughter), i sincerely believe, are shoo-ins..and that leaves us with LA (sorry, LA).

Such a league does exist and a player of mine in the D-League, Stephen Siruma (formerly of CEU) was actually hired by a Cambodian basketball team called "Extra Joss Fighters" to play in that particular league which will run for 4 months.

Wild and wooly ang mga game results ng UAAP in their first 2 weeks of competition. FEU beats La Salle but lost to UST. UST lost to NU pero nakabawi naman sa FEU. NU did beat UST pero natalo naman sa La Salle. The surprise leader (currently) is Ateneo but aside front that huge victory over arch-rival DLSU, their 2 other wins "only" came at the expense of "for sure" cellar-dwellers Soaring Falcons and Fighting Maroons.

The UE Red Warriors are currently 2-0, a very good start, i should say. But those 2 wins also came at the expense of the woeful Falcons and Maroons. They looked good though, and could seem to very well give "the favorites" a run for their money.

So even early-on, its becoming clearer and clearer that this season will be a 6-team toss-up while Adamson and UP will continue to slug it out for last place.

Got to watch the UAAP game between Ateneo & NU today (my 1st time to watch live this season). NU was able to scraped past the Eagles thereby leaving UE as the only undefeated team in the tournament. Except for UP & Adamson (both currently languishing in the cellar), the 6 other schools are running neck to neck in vying for Final 4 berths.

Seems like these 6 teams are pretty even with only the breaks of the game ultimately deciding the outcome of these matches. Ateneo beating La Salle, La Salle beating NU, and now NU pulling the rug from under the Blue Eagles. The ultimate come-on for this season is its unpredictability. Fans will surely be in for a treat as the season rolls along.

Hindi naman sa "by choice". It just so happened when i inherited that team, walang import at wala ring naka-residence na import ang UE. On my 2nd year, kumuha rin ako ng import, si Henri Betayene, at pinag-residence ko dun. Yun nga lang, when my contract wasn't extended by management, pati si Betayene they opted to let go claiming (by their team manager at that time) na ayaw ng UE ang may import.

Trending yung free agency (restricted) ni Paul Lee at the end of this month. Rain or Shine management had recently offered a contract extension. Curiously, wala man lang "feelers" akong natatanggap from either the SMC and MVP Group. Hmm...

First of all, si Paul lang naman ang mina-manage ko and also, 1st time niyang mag-eexpire ang contract AND.. nagkataon lang din na pumutok din ang pangalan niya lalo na nitong mga past few months.

We all know of several players making (so much) more than the (PBA) prescribed maximum monthly salary of P420,000.00, and most of those cagers are either with the SMC or MVP camp. Some of them could be playing outside of those 2 camps now but they were signed to those huge contracts when they were still strutting their wares with the SMC/MVP Group.

Guys like Alex Cabagnot, Jay Washington, Mac Cardona, Joseph Yeo (recently "returned" to SMC), Sean Anthony (recently returned to MVP), and a whole bunch of players on the roster of the Barako Bull team. Those players' salaries, im sure, are being subsidized by the teams that signed them while they strut their wares with "small market" teams. Another basketball term for this practice is "farming"

Did i just say that may mga farm teams sa PBA?? Oops!!!

I can choose a dozen players in the pool ahead of Kyle Pascual. :) But kidding aside, i'd definitely select Banchero over 3 Kyle Pascual if i were RoS or any other team. Big men, especially those unskilled ones, are terribly overrated porke ba't matatangkad sila?

Look at the likes of Sam Eman, Jason Ballesteros, Isaac Holstein, Gian Chu, and in past, guys like Frederick Canlas, Mark Andaya, even former UAAP MVP Ken Bono..mga bust talaga sa PBA. What would make Kyle Pascual any different? He couldn't even dominate in the NCAA!! Unlike Chris Banchero na blue-chip talaga.

A #2 pick almost automatically gets a rookie-max deal (P8.7M over 3 years). Hindi kaya lumuha ng pintura ang mga RoS owners everytime na sasahod si Kyle Pascual? Sad to say but ganon talaga dapat ang pag-estima ng mga high rookie picks. Hindi pwedeng harutin o pag-eksperimentuhan yan. A top 3 rookie pick, if equated to peso, is easily worth 10-15 million pesos kung ibebenta mo (ask Air21).

RoS might as well sell or trade (for a proven quality big man) that#2 pick kaysa naman i-hocus-pocus lang.

Thank you. Almost everything in life naman involves one's destiny. Personally, i believe Paul can still do more than what he's shown in his first 3 years as a pro. There are still times na disappointed pa nga ako sa performance niya pero he's still young (25). Im expecting na mas maging dominating pa yung laro niya in the future, if not this coming season.

Marcio is a superb player as well (if we take away his health issues, the extent only he himself, and probably SMB, would know). Maraming contributing factors lang din yung rise ni Paul. First of which is when Powerade bypassed him and settled for Jvee Casio (also a very good player, i should say) in the 2011 Rookie Draft kaya Paul landed at RoS, who in turn gave him the opportunity (thru coach Yeng Guiao) and the trust to be able to showcase yung talent niya for all the PBA fans to see.

Naka-dagdag din sa resume o pogi-points ni Paul yung pagkaka-pili sa kanya, this time by coach Chot Reyes, sa pool ng Gilas Pilipinas. At nagkataon pang naka-chamba siya ng nailagay siya ng Panginoon at ng tadhana dun sa sitwasyon na na-foul siya at naipasok yung 3 free throws niya para masungkit ng Pilipinas yung bronze medal sa katatapos lang ng FIBA-Asia Cup na ginanap sa Wuhan, China.

Last but not the least, yung pagkaka-tadhana ng aming samahan. Mula nung ma-draft ko siya with the 7th pick nung 2008 PBL Rookie Draft hanggang sa magtuloy ito sa hindi namin parehong inaasahan na pagsasama sa koponan ng UE Red Warriors nung 2009 UAAP Season kung saan nagtapos ng 1st Runner-Up ang UE matapos nitong makapasok sa finals sa pamamagitan ng dalawang beses na panalo kontra sa FEU Tamaraws in a "twice to beat" scenario.

At nung hindi na ako pinatuloy pa bilang coach ng UE matapos ng year 2010 na siya namang ginawang senyales ni Paul na panahon na na umakyat na siya sa pro ranks at mag-apply na sa 2011 PBA Rookie Draft. Dun na po umpisang gumawa ng ingay ang player na tinaguriang "The Lethal Weapon" sa mundo ng basketball.

At dun narin po nag-umpisa ang kwento ng "Angas Ng Tundo".

Coach, nabasa niyo na ba yung reklamo ni coach Rey Madrid? Anong say niyo coach? Parang ngayon lang na derechahang accusation yun. Wala ng paliguy ligoy pa.

Sa opinyon ko lang, dahil sa mga maa-anghang na rebelasyon na yan ni coach Rey Madrid, he can already kiss his basketball coaching career..Goodbye.

If you ask me, and in fairness to coach Madrid, im sure dala narin yan ng frustrations (probably even a broken-heart & mental anguish as well) over his team's horrendous losing streak which im sure brings with it a tremendous amount of pressure, if not ridicule, from friends and peers, not to mention the "very unforgiving" UP basketball community.

Probably the sleepness nights, the mental torture, the physical and emotional strain..and maybe also the booze, if napapadalas. Yan nga ang madalas kong istorya nowadays about the difference of getting lucky in landing the job..at kung ano naman ang gagawin o magagawa mo once you land the job.

Hindi ba't na-press release pa yung mga kwento ng mother ni former UP coach Ricky Dandan sometime ago when Madrid succeeded in replacing Dandan? Na kesyo childhood buddies pa mandin sina coach Rey at coach Ricky dating back to their Angelicum School days tapos in the end, reading between the lines, eh parang na-strain yung lifelong friendship nila just because of a basketball coaching job. Parang ini-insinuate na may sulutang nangyari or hindi ipinagtanggol, something like that.

Then fast forward everything to today. Coach Ricky is now happily back in the arms of another UP alumnus in coach Bo Perasol sa bakuran ng Ateneo (malamang naka-move on narin siya)..while coach Madrid is, as we speak, in the middle of a Yolanda-like typhoon. If a 26-game losing streak (not sure kung ilan dun ang pwedeng i-credit kay Ricky Dandan :) ) is not enough, here comes this career-ending statement which, for all intent and purposes, is insinuating that gambling is going-on in the UAAP!!

Hindi lang credibilidad ng mga referees at ng asosasyon nila ang at stake dito. Isama mo na pati ang UAAP at ang 8-member institution dito. Not to mention yung "hundreds of million pesosesoses" na investment ng ABS-CBN sa naturang school league.

Now how do you sweep all these statements and accusations "under the rug", so to speak? The damage had been done at maghahanap na ngayon yan ng scapegoat.

Everyone wants to be a UAAP coach. Everyone thinks its easy to be a UAAP coach. Some people think that just because they used to be good ballers that they'd make a good UAAP coach. And some even believes that just by being an alumnus of certain schools can get the job done.

Now here's Rey Madrid. I've heard he's an architect or a contractor by profession, a true-blue (maroon) UP alumnus (with a degree in B.S. Architecture??-mabigat) at that. I suppose he's intelligent and a compassionate and honorable individual in our society. He must have lost a thing or 2 there for uttering (probably without thinking) those no-no's, of all people, TO THE MEDIA!!!

Thats what losing (especially UP's streak) does to you. It eats you. It sucks your brains out. It thugs hard at the heart. AND IT'S GHOST CAN BRING OUT THE MONSTER IN YOU.

Epilogue: there's a vacant UAAP basketball coaching job available, WELCOME APPLICANTS!

^ Coach Yeng Guiao just released some "loaded" words again. . . Wala naman daw pinag iba yung maximum nila (ROS) sa maximum ng any other teams. As a manager. is that maximum just in principle meaning more than what is offered? and which direction does a manager sway his talent? to somewhere he can strut his talent plus "more than" the maximum pay or to where he could strut his wares and "just" get a maximum pa?

A manager should try to get the best deal for his ward. Kung sa playing time siya nagkukulang, subukang makahanap ng team na mabibigyan sya nito. Kung sa perks o pinansyal na aspeto naman nakukulangan ang ward, yun naman ang dapat hanapin ng manager.

May player na ok lang na medyo maliit ang sahod..basta may playing time. May mga players din naman na ok lang mabangko..basta malaki ang sweldo. :)

Bonus at sadyang pinag-pala na yung bukod sa malaking sahod..babad ka pa. San ka pa?? :)

Kaya pag nag end ang contract, madalas polat opposites ang objectives ng manager at coach/management... madaling mag husga pag bystander ka lang... na selfish si player or barat si team management/coach... Pero actually both (player manager and coach/team management) are just doing their job...

Personally, coach, wala akong bilib kay Paul Lee pag labas nya ng college/commercial league. Sa isip ko, mabagal na, hindi pa play maker as a PG. Pag 2 naman ma overpower sya ng mga bagong (meaning malalaki) na SG. Parang di coach Ato Agustin din dati... ok namayagpag sa (then) PABL pero masyadong tweener to make it to the pros... ayun, nabusog ako ng mga salita ko hehehe... katulad ni Paul Lee, na nalagay sa magandang situation, si coach Ato din, made the most of the circumstances (pamalit ng injured SMB PGs) and won the MVP and succeeding huge contracts (?)...

Most, if not all, contributors here sa Gameface eh mayroong kaalaman (somehow) sa diskarte ng basketball dito sa ating bayan. Although the game is the same, the culture is somehow different from how it is in other parts of the world.

Dito sa atin, binabayaran/nababayaran/binibili/nabibili pati ang mga collegiate players. Sa ibang bansa, specifically sa America, bawal yan. Dito sa atin, bahagi na ang mga "sponsors" sa mundo ng basketball. Status-symbol pa nga kung meron ka nito. Dito sa atin, kahit mga professional players eh pumapatol parin sa ligang-labas at hindi ko maintindihan kung papano ito pinapayagan. Dito sa atin, kahit government officials pwede maging player o maging coach. Dito sa atin, ang professional boxer ay pwede rin maging professional basketball playing-coach..bukod sa pagiging government official.

There it is: a 2-game suspension meted-out on UP coach Rey Madrid..BY THE UAAP. Hindi pa natin alam ang magiging sanction sa kanya NG UP MISMO, kung meron man. Kadalasan yung mga ganyang pangyayari..may backlash pa yan sa dulo. Not unless 110% ang suporta ng kung sinu-sino man ang nasa likuran ng UP Mens Basketball Team kay coach Rey Madrid.

I've heard kasi na yung karapatan para magpa-simuno ng basketball team dyan sa UP eh "tug of war" din ang labanan..very much similar dun sa bakuran ng UE.

Today's tussle in the UAAP between UP and Adamson has been tagged as the game of the week and it should prove to be a dandy. The outcome..could be of a highly emotional and historical in nature. Almost 1 month since the season began, and 1 of these hardluck teams will finally be able to nail a "first" win, a win that can only be possibly attained against each other.

This could also be a highly emotionally-charged ballgame with nothing but pride at stake. I even believe that it will be a highly-physical encounter, if only to avoid going winless at end of the 1st round of this season's basketball hostilities.

Sugod na sa MOA! Bago pa kayo maubusan ng tickets. :)

coach, ano sa tingin niyo kay stanley pringle? is he really that good?

at tsaka bakit iyong ibang angat na amateur players hesitant magturn o nag-dedelay mag-pro? like si roland pascual na 26 years old na, ngayon lang sasali sa draft (matagal na naman ata sya naka-recover sa injury niya).

is it strictly the pecking order sa draft ang habol nila? i assume a high call-up obviously means more prestige and i'm guessing the monetary boon that's offered to a rookie is directly proportional to how high he was picked in the draft ladder. iyon lang ba ang main concern o meron pa ibang rason, coach?

I haven't really seen Pringle in action..ever. I've been told he's the "real deal" daw so malamang magaling nga. Dun naman sa pangalawang question mo, kaya siguro hesitant yung ibang mga angat na amateurs magpa-draft o dini-delay ang pagpapa-draft, kasi hindi naman talaga sila "angat" at kelangan pang manigurado o nag-aantay ng padrino o guarantor.

Yung mga "tunay na angat", eh yung mga kalibre nina Greg Slaughter, Ian Sangalang, Marcio Lassiter, Chris Lutz, Japeth Aguilar, Joe Devance, JuneMar Fajardo, pati narin si Calvin Abueva. "Angat" narin kung maitu-turing sina Noy Baclao at Rabeh Al-Hussaini dun sa batch nila kaya lang medyo sablay nga ang nilalaro sa pros.

Yung maitu-turing mo lang naman talagang blue-chip sa mga aplikante for this year's draft eh sina Pringle at Chris Banchero lang. Yung Ganuelas we can consider a borderline case kasi nga bukod sa Fil-Am eh multi-position ang nilalaro nito and with a height of 6'5.

Dun naman sa kaso ni Ronald Pascual, malamang eh medyo malaki ang sweldo/utang nito sa D-League team niya kaya hindi nagmamadaling magpa-draft. If not, hindi ko rin makita ang rationale ng pago-overstay niya sa amateurs. Hindi naman rason din yung national team kasi sa mga big tournaments, mga PBA players naman din ang pinapadala.

You said he's 26. All the more na dapat magmadali na siyang magpa-draft coz the older one gets, bababa din yung stock value niya. Unless nga may pre-arranged set-up na siya with the MVP Group. Si Paul Lee nga 25 palang pero nakatapos na ng isang kontrata and will be entering his 2nd career contract na tapos yung 26 years old hindi parin nagpapa-draft. Something just doesn't seem right. Don't you think so??

Yes. Parang ganon na nga. Pero yung pag-apply niya sa PBA Draft wasn't my idea. Ang sabi niya upon the advice daw ni coach Richard Del Rosario. Tinanong ko rin kung bakit hindi siya muna nagpaalam sa akin. Ang sabi naman niya nag-apply lang naman siya to beat the deadline then tsaka nalang namin pag-aaralan/pag-iisipan uli since may until Aug.20 naman daw to back-out if ever.

Ya. He did also tell me na Monch was another guy who convinced him to apply for the draft since last playing year narin pala ni Pao this season. Kung ako lang masusunod i would prefer him to wait till next year's draft.

You're right. With the Gilas cadets + Pringle and Banchero, idagdag mo pa sina Jericho Cruz, Raul Soyud & Rodney Brondial, maybe best spot na yung 15th to 20th pick umabot si Paolo. But yun nga lang, we'll never know for sure. Hindi ko rin naman masilip how these PBA teams think kaya its really hard to tell. Tadhana din yan eh.

But kung assessment ko lang ang pagbabatayan, i really don't think now is the best time for Paolo to enter.

Case to case basis yan. Team to team and in this case, school to school.

Nung pumasok ako sa UE dati, yung tangi kong goal is to end yung 23-year title drought sa UAAP ng pamantasan..at wala ng iba. Naging win at all cost ang mantra ko nung mga panahong yon.

I owed the community (the student body, the faculty, the school employees and supporters, and the alumni) to pile up wins in order to have a crack at the championship.

Sa kaso naman nina coach Boyet at ni Ola, its an entirely different scenario. Ang San Beda ay nakapang-hakot ng sandamakmak na kampeonato nitong huling dekada (also after going thru more than 2 decades of futility) kaya its not difficult for them to put up some sideshows along the way.

Kung player ko si Ola nung mga panahong yon sa UE and if he happened to be my main man, palalampasin po yang kalokohan but only after discussing the whole scenario to the team and management. At pag matapos ang liga at hindi kami nag-champion..may oras pa naman para pagpasok palang ng dug-out eh lumpuhin ko ang damuhong yan. :)

Kung mag-champion din naman at the end of the day, hindi lang siya abswelto. May bonus pa siyang all-expense paid one-way ticket to Nigeria (dun ka nalang) :)

Sadyang parang buhay lang ang basketball. A big part (the biggest) of it is destiny. Imagine if Manny Pangilinan were to support UP & EAC instead at the time he started his passion for basketball about a decade ago. Naka-ilang championships na kaya ang Fighting Maroons at ang Generals sa UAAP at sa NCAA by now?

Kapalaran nga naman. Kung minsan maharot..kadalasan mapag-biro. It can make and unmake people, achievements, happiness, sadness, moments, and history. La Salle is having a rennaisance of sort after the comeback of Boss Danding as well. And also in the past 6 years, naka-wait list narin ang NU ng SM.

Mas nakaganda nga ba talaga ang pagpasok nitong mga patron sa mga school leagues? Or nag-create lang ba ito ng imbalance among participating teams? For 1, i don't see any chance in hell na magcha-champion pa ang Adamson Univ. at ang Mapua Tech in the next decade or so.

Of course happy dyan ang mga students, alumni at supporters nitong mga "pinag-palang" institusyon but lets be honest..in the context of fair play and in the spirit of equal competition, wala nga ba talagang mali rito??

Coach, I disagree with you a bit. Ewan ko ang Adamson but Mapua has a chance of winning the NCAA championship. All it takes is for the Yuchengco family to decide that they will support the basketball program of Mapua. The Yuchengco's have a history in supporting basketball. When there was an inter-insurance and bank leagues, they had a team in each league. The family also had a team in the old MICAA under the Grepa Life Insurance banner.

The success of a school also hinges on who supports the schools basketball program. Baste and FEU won in their respective leagues when the schools padrino was the vice governor of Pampanga. Both schools did not have a large war chest but rather a direct access to the cream of the basketball players in the stable of the Pineda family. I don't know which school the Pineda's are primarily supporting but 2 Cabalen players transfered from SSC and SBC to DLSU.

Actually, Mapua probably could have been contenders for a final 4 slot this year (around the 4th-7th slot) had Brana not been relegated to team B due to academic deficiencies, and Nimes not been lost to an injury, and Sargent not been poached by La Salle. That's 3 very good starting caliber players right there.

Ok. So if its not Mapua then another school perhaps? EAC? or LPU? As i was saying, if Mapua had been spending "left and right", dapat nasuhulan na yang mga prof ni Brana (whoever he is) para hindi siya bumagsak sa klase and para hindi rin na-poach si Sargent ng La Salle.

Look at Jerie Pingoy. What do you think made him switch school even at the expense of sitting-out 2 years?? You're right! Its an Ateneo De Manila University diploma. :)

Boss, I think Pineda has diverted most of his resources to Lyceum which is where one of the Cabalen players of DLSU was playing before his transfer. But it seems that he has opened up the cream of the crop in his stable to the highest bidders, and that should explain why Daryl Pascual, despite being assured of a Team A slot in SBC and being included in the Lithuania trip still made the leap to DLSU because of what DLSU offered his patron, which I heard was way more than their standard offer, I've heard of rumors that a mutual alliance was forged between both sides going beyond basketball and maybe related to the 2016 election, of which is rumored that the vice governor may be running for the governorship to replace his term-limited mother with Danding and his political machine assisting him.

Thank you dun sa observationmo kay Belo. Even Paolo Taha, i believe, is having the finest season of his NCAA gig dahil narin sa batak sa D-League. Si Prince Caperal lang among my "school" boys ang medyo nasasadlak sa "doghouse".

I've known Sabellina's potential as early as 2010. In fact, i was supposed to take him in sa UE nga nung nagco-coach pa ako dun but yung 1-year of eligibility left niya ang nagpabago ng isip ko nun. And then eto nga nagkasama kaming muli sa D-League. Ang kulang lang naman talaga sa batang yan in his 1st few conferences with me is yung kumpiyansa at dun naman sa aspeto na yan ko siya talagang tinutukan.

Nitong huling mga dalawa o tatlong conference niya sa akin, he had really came into his own and madalas ehnagiging go-to-guy pa namin siya. Kung meron nalang na dapat pang tutukan o i-hasa sa kanya eh yung basketball I.Q. niya which oftentimes leads him to make unwise basketball decisions. Kung sa sipag, tiyaga at talent..he's the total package. Bulk up a bit nalang siguro din. :)

^ Boss ano pa ba dapat pagusapan? Kung ayaw na ni Paul sa RoS that is entirely up to Paul, pwera lang kung may existing contract pa siya, kung wala na or malapit na expiration, as in the present case, Paul should be free to go to whoever gives him the best deal and/or where he will be most happy.

All i will share for now is that RoS, whether its their representative, or their owners, or maybe just the script that they followed..they bungled it. All those uncalled for threatening press releases from the get-go of all these episodes. It just went out of control.

Whether they were acts of intimidation or acts of desperation..it definitely didn't help the cause at all.

I suppose you guys have had enough of this Paul Lee-Rain or Shine drama thats been hugging the deadline these past couple of weeks since i got no inquiry or questions here whatsoever.

I don't blame you though coz ako rin parang na-umay na :)

Anyway, since thread ko ito and kahit na papaano eh may tatlo akong fans dito..i-share ko lang na yung hiling na trade from RoS eh..yun nga..hiling lang. Desire, wish, request..however you wanna call it. And malayung-malayo ito sa salitang demand. Hindi nga po pwedeng ipilit sa RoS since they own the "right of first refusal" over Paul, mainly due to a PBA ruling or rule.

Therefore, it is clear to us that any trade, if ever there will be one, will need the approval or has to be initiated by RoS. Wala pong karapatansi Paul na mag-demand. Yung hanggang sa pag-express lang ng desire ang pwede niyang gawin.

He got offended after reading that RoS is willing to trade anyone on their team..including Paul Lee. And maybe some other stuffs within the team that only he knows. If you make me read between the lines, perhaps the bad had already outweighed the good, for him to come forward so strongly on the matter.

Ang usapan is kung saan magiging masaya at magagamit ng tama si Paul. Money is of course a factor but its not THE only factor. Tama ang iba sa inyo rito..the more i assess the other teams in the league 1 by 1, and as the days go by..seems like sa RoS lang talaga babagay si Paul.

If only that stupid lawyer of their's didn't bungle on his job, these things wouldn't have gotten this ugly in the 1st place. Maybe RoS sent a criminal lawyer kasi instead of a corporate one. :)

Ok naman din sa Ginebra. Konti pang vacuum o pagpag sa overall make-up ng team na yan..with the legendary Gins fans behind it..the people's team ika nga..i would've loved to see Paul don a Gin Kings jersey.

But as of this time, since ako ang tinatanong niyo rito..i would say sa RoS ko siya gusto mag-stay. #1 original team #2 even with Chris Tiu around :), u can say na kung basketball lang ang batayan..Paul is the face of that franchise #3 his rapport with his coaches and teamates-3 years is 3 years. hindi ganon ka-dali mag-establish ng ganong katatabang ugat ika nga #4 mga RoS fans-they were behind Paul thru thick & thin these past 3 seasons..thru the injuries..thru the success & failures..minahal na dyan si Paul #5 yung challenge-while teams like SanMig, SMB, Gin, TNT & Alaska..kahit nung wala pa si Paul eh mga tanyag na teams na yan na may malalalim ng tradisyon at tagumpay. Sa RoS, kumbaga eh kasabay lang ni Paul na mago-grow itong franchise. Hindi ni Paul kelangan makisawsaw dun sa mga na-achieved ng mga teams na yan. Para hindi siya maging bandwagoner tingnan. An option could be Meralco. Isa pang team yan na wala pang napatunayan at borderline lokbu-litesna team these past 4 seasons..inspite of having a big budget at its disposal. Pwedeng magdala si Paul sa kanila ng pagbabago.

Overview, i'd like to see Paul in a set-up na he will make the franchise and not the other way around. Tulad nalang sa Ginebra na kapag kinuha ka dun akala mo utang na loob mo pa. :)

Its a coaches' perspective so yung playing time hindi issue for me. Its not as if from 10 mins to benchwarmer naman ang role ni Lee sa RoS.
Malay mo pag lalong binabad eh magkalat pa yan lalo. :)

Im a coach also so hindi mo maririnig sa akin na yung coaching style o diskarte ng coach ang ku-kwestiyunin ko.

On top of that, with that amount of playing time, he still became Paul Lee..so maybe you can say na hiyang naman siya sa playing time na binibigay sa kanya.

Coach, ano ang update kay Paul Lee? Ayoko na magbasa ng mga articles ang gugulo, buti na yung dirteso dito kay Manager sigurado pa =)

Paiba-iba rin kasi sila ng signals (THRU MEDIA). Nung una pwede raw i-trade kahit sino maski si Paul. Kesyo pilosopiya daw nila yung hindi pipigilan yung mga ayaw na sa kanila. Next naman ayaw maniwala hangga't di naririnig ng personal from Paul..nung personal ng tinawagan, ayaw patin maniwala. Along the way eh panay upak sa manager while maingat sila sa mga statements when it comes to Paul.

Matapos ang almost 3 weeks na pambo-bomba (THRU MEDIA), ang gusto pala nila ay mag-focus muna si Paul sa FIBA. Not even once na nag-mention ako about pera pero sila itong from Day 1 eh isina-salpak na sa kaisipan ng taong-bayan na pera ang issue. Ako daw ang sumisira kay Paul samantalang sila itong panay pukol ng dumi sa amin.

I know naman na may sinusunod lang na script ang kabilang kampo and its a given naman na yun lang ang tanging paraan o weapon na meron sila. Nauunawaan ko yon. Sa Court of Public Opinion nila kami tinitira..pero naubos na yung nerbyos at kaba ko. Im now just calling their bluff. If they're lusting or craving over Paul..just say so.

The Rights of Lee in the PBA STILL belongs to them kaya the ball is in their court. Are they really gonna trade Lee or will they swallow their pride and ego..and beg LEE to stay. Madali naman ako kausap eh. Basta walang murahan at ngaratan..o walk-out. :)

Well, to begin with..RoS has the"rights of first refusal" on Lee therefore, nakasalalay sa kamay ng RoS kung saan man ang magiging destinasyon ni Paul. And another reason is that RoS lang naman (and coach Yeng) ang nag-covet kay Paul through all those dramas.

Yung ibang mga teams, maybe in their hearts and guts eh interesado rin naman talaga kay Paul pero mas binigyan nila ng importansya yung PR o mga imahe nila. Takot silang pumangit ang image at kuyugin ng masa sa panunulot ng player. So i told myself that nobody deserved Paul more than Rain or Shine.

Do or die Wednesday (Oct.1 showdown) in the UAAP! NU vs ADMU, DLSU vs FEU...choose your winners!

My predictions? It'll be a toss-up between NU vs ADMU while i believe DLSU will prevail in the other setto.

Reasons being: it'll be a battle of logistics. ADMU and NU will be very interesting since both are equally hi-fi teams. DLSU is head and shoulders above FEU in this regard. The only way for the Tamaraws is if the stars and the moon should align with how their players perform tomorrow.

ALL EYES should be on the 6 zebras that will be task to officiate both games. For all we know, the final results will only end up with one bad call.

In today's match-up, i thought it would be hard for NU not to catch the "finals" bus.

But seriously, having a solid line-up and them playing beautiful music inside the basketball court are 2 different things. If only i have 5-6 months together with these bunch of guys..i would've predicted a finals stint for us..easy.

But 3 weeks?? Hmm...

Magaling naman kayo Coach. Kayang-kaya yan. :)

For what it's worth, I would've picked Newsome over those 2 too. AVO regressed so bad this year, I don't know if it's the injury he incurred or just a general lack of interest on his part. And Norbert has his own shortcomings as well.

Yan din ang observations ko thats why i went with talent and skills over height and heft. But of course there is still that luxury of time for those 2 giant Archers to hone up their games even more.

Baka maging motivation pa nga nila yang pag-bypass ko sa kanila everytime our teams go head to head. :)

Balik lang ako sa UAAP coach-

While everyone was expecting a UAAP Finals Rivalry, here comes NU & FEU to "spoil" the party. But they really deserve to be in the finals.

FEU- after the departure of their stars, I thought Tolomia will just be another offensive-minded guard in the making. But he showed that he can pass and definitely play in a system. And of course, Belo. This guy has nerves of steel. Too many upside for this young kid. Pwede talaga sa Gilas 3.0. Much credit to Coach Nash for transforming this squad into a fine team. Pucha they have La Salle's number this season. Dine-throne pa nila.

NU- karamihan sa atin di pa buhay nung huli silang magchampion. After decades (di lang years) of heartbreak,
they now get their well-deserved shot of the UAAP title. Salamat syempre sa mga Sy and of course kay Coach E. I expected NU to struggle after Parks left the team. But look at them now, the number 1 defensive team in the UAAP. Wow.

Actually parehong gumanda ang takbo ng NU at FEU compared last year where they still have their stars/MVPs. Goes to show that playing as a team will get you somewhere.

Pusta ko dito coach NU- They have a good coach, the manpower (depth), the experience (all those heartbreaks these past years) and they have the homecourt advantage (MOA). Bwahahaha

Kidding aside, tingin ko parehong team of destiny tong dalawang to. Mas panahon lang ng NU ngayon sa palagay ko.

Yan din ang palagay ko. From the get-go, i've told those who cared to listen..that Nash is the best-equipped among the 8 coaches in the league.

While the Ateneo, the La Salle & in a way, NU, these teams relied heavily on resources (makinarya) to go to battle, FEU meanwhile, has taken the "basic" route, and it was very much evident in the endgame of the FEU-DLSU knockout match last Wednesday. If you'll notice, FEU "executed" exclusively in the last 7 mins of that game while Teng and Vosotross took turns in upstaging the other, on their way to an ambush by way of a heaven-sent buzzer-beater to send their Archers home for good.

If we are to use that line of assumption,we might as well go the whole 9-yards and add to the equation the departures of Golla, Erram & Tiongson for ADMU, Jeric Teng & Clark Bautista of Uste, Ray Parks, Jean Mbe & Robin Rono of NU, LA Revilla of DLSU, Roider Cabrera, Jericho Cruz & Brondial of AdU, Adrian Santos, Ralph Olivares, JM Noble & Lord Casajeros of UE, never mind UP...lahat ng teams na-lagasan din to cushion yung departure nina RR Garcia at T. Romeo mula sa FEU. Ganun narin yung pagkawala ni Parks from NU.

I know you're trying to imply na nakasama pa nga sa FEU dati yung nandun yung dalawa kasi mga swapang, buwaya, maka-sarili, mga distractions..just to name a few adjectives to describe them. :)

Pero yung sa akin lang, hindi batayan yang nakapasok sa Finals ang FEU at a time na wala na yung dalawang "Vice-Boys" sa koponan nila. In my book, nagkataon lang din na nalagasan o humina rin kasi ang competition..at malamang pinalad din sila itong taong ito, kaya nila narating ang kinalalagyan nila ngayon.

Pana-panahon at ukol-ukol lang din yan.

Dinadaan kami sa teknikalidad ng kampo ni Newsome. May stupid rule ang D-League na dapat pirmado ng draftee yung offer sheet ng team na drumaft sa kanya. Kaso kasagsagan ng kampanya ng Ateneo sa UAAP Final 4 nun kaya ayaw kong maka-distract kay Newsome.

Sinamantala ngayon ito ng manager ni Newsome para makatakas sa obligasyon sa amin at inilipat yung player sa Hapee na suportado (sub-financed) ng MVP Group. Inilapit ko na kay Comm. Salud itong issue at antayin nalang natin yung magiging kahihinatnan.

Nasabi ko rin kay Salud na yung rule nila na kailangan pa yung pirma ng draftee sa offer sheet eh walang proteksyon para sa team. Magtago lang pala ng 5 days yung player eh makakaligtas na pala ito. Para saan pa yung drafting?? Stupid.

coach ganito din ang nangyari kay Jervy Cruz. 2007 or 2008 Jervy was drafted number 2 (Henkel Sista?) but they failed to sign him up (10 days yata sa rule ng PBL) and Jervy ended up being signed by Hapee. Hapee drafted Gabe Norwood at number 1.

I was coaching in the PBL from 2004-2010. Ang pinagkaiba sa PBL, and i told Comm. Salud about this, hindi required na pirmahan ng draftee ang offer sheet. Alam na ni then PBL Comm. Chino Trinidad na pwede ngang samantalahin o paglaruan ng kampo ng isang draftee yung ganyang rule na kailangan pang pirmahan ang isang offer sheet. Maybe Sista just wasn't able to submit a tender offer in time kaya nangyari yung kay Jervy.

Ang nakakalungkot nito, baka itong nangyari sa amin sa pagitan ni Newsome ang gawing sample ng pagbabago sa kalakaran ng D-League drafting procedure in the future. Yung kami pa yung unang tinamaan o yung trahedya namin ang maging mitsa ng pagbabago. How sad.

More than strengthening Hapee, parang double blackeye pa ang nangyari kasi parang nanakawan kayo ng player or potential player, kasi you could've used the draft pick to choose someone else had you known na hindi rin pala magsisign with you yung napili niyo. (Like say, getting Norbert Torres)

Or Arnold Van Opstal who was selected by Cafe France after we picked Newsome. Van Opstal was later traded to Hapee rin pala for Hapee draftee Maverick Ahanmisi, a US NCAA Division 1 point guard out of Univ. of Minnesota.

To think that there is a "No Trading" policy in the D-League.

For the D-League leadership to turn a blind eye to all these shenanigans still leaves me clueless as to why these are being tolerated. Its as if teams like my team are mere second-class organizations in this MVP league.

Im now only clinging to the wisdom of Comm. Salud when he starts to act on the complaint letter he personally advised me to write.

I really don't care about Newsome now but since 1st round draft pick namin siya, #2 overall at that, sana naman makakuha kami ng kapalit from Hapee. I'd even accept a truckload of toothpaste bilang kapalit.

Coach who came up with the five-day limit to sign draftees?

I think its an old PBA rule. Yung "signed" ang sa palagay ko hindi na dapat mandatory. Even back in our PBL days, teams only had to submit a tender offer to the league office to have a hold of the draftee. Kasi in the current set-up, all the draftee has to do is hide, go out of town, for 5 days and after that, he's free to go wherever he wants?? Madali tuloy ma-manipulate yung drafting process.

Coach, the 3rd pick (Arnold Van Opstal) was traded for the 6th pick (Maverick Ahanmisi, pero tama ba Coach, sixth nga ba itong Ahanmisi...?). Bakit naman higher pick traded for a lower pick?

Hindi kaya masyadong lamang ang Hapee diyan? I thought trading draft picks isn't allowed in the D League? Commissioner Salud has some explaining to do.

Ahanmisi was technically the 8th pick in the draft by Hapee. There was an inside trading that transpired between Cafe France & Hapee. Cafe France originally wanted Ahanmisi so Hapee requested them to draft Van Opstal on their behalf at #3 since Ahanmisi is sort of out of the radar..and assumingly safe to still get to Hapee at #8.

What they then did after wasn't a trade. It was a ploy. They allowed both Van Opstal's and Ahanmisi's 5-days grace period to lapse thereby lulling the PBA to declare them free agents, then Hapee picked up AVO while Ahanmisi was picked up by Cafe France.

They think they're smart and cunning??? If only the league will have more bite to its bark..they oughta fine these smart-asses for circumventing a basic rule.

Well, then it has to be something else. Now that the league has spoken, we'll just have to move on. Bitter pill to swallow..not specifically because of Newsome..but of losing our first round pick in only the D-League's 2nd EVER rookie draft.

We paid dearly for commiting an act of courtesy (and coaches ethics) towards the Ateneo De Manila University and to coach Bo Perasol. We did submit an offer sheet to Newsome but the league also wanted it SIGNED by the player which we never complied to.

It isn't naman Newsome per se ang pinang-hihinayangan ko but the #2 overall pick ng team ko. Lessons learned talaga na in the D-League, next time, i'll ask na muna yung player kung gusto ba niya sa amin before i draft him (or whoever).

Kita naman sa mga pangyayari na the league is "inutil" when it comes to #1, coming up with rules and guidelines that makes sense #2, protecting the interest of member teams.

Take the case of Kirk Long (nothing personal to the guy) na till now eh pinapayagan na maglaro sa isang liga supposedly eh bawal ang import unless may school tie-up. Then isa pa yang school tie-up na in disguise lang para ma-acquire ng isang D-League team yung import ng ka-tie up na school.

No wonder more than 20 teams na have joined..then disbanded, in this 3 & a half year-old league.

A boycott or simply just to walk away would've been too easy..and on the same breath..maybe not the wisest of decision for us to make. Prudence, as they say, is always the better part of valor, after all.

This Newsome thing would eventually die down. There will be more draft picks, more conferences, and more basketball games for us to hurdle as we move on from this chapter in our team's (company's) existence in the local basketball scene.
