Gilas Pilipinas… I mean Chooks-To-Go… has announced its final lineup for the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup. Well… It’s not really the lineup… lineup… because they have former pro Gab Banal and TV personality Andre Paras in case the papers of Isaiah Austin and Rod Ebondo fail. SEAG gold medallists … Continue reading Chooks-To-Go Gilas Pilipinas versus Andray Blatche and other by the ways
I would rather see Gilas Pilipinas lose to Korea, Lebanon, and hell... even Kazakhstan than see them squeak out a win against Thailand. No offense to Thailand... but I don’t even care if they have Tyler Lamb by their side. The only way the Philippines would lose to any ASEAN country is if … Continue reading Remember the time we ditched Team Pilipinas for the Philippine Azkals?
I bought a 999-peso WWE Champions level up pack. I got a silver 3-star “Balor Club” Finn Balor, a gold 2-star “American Badass” Undertaker, a fuse card to my bronze 2-star “Black Sheep” Braun Strowman, and used three 1-star upgrades to transform my showboat John Cena into a 3-star bronze. Balor … Continue reading The Infinite Challenge that is the Korean National Squad
He could have been the first pick overall of the 2017 PBA Draft. Christian Standhardinger has been working his ass to provide the offensive load inside the paint as well as dictate the pace with his rebounding at the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup.

For three straight games, we expected Calvin Abueva to unleash his awesomeness on our foes. However, the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup has been a trial for the Alaska Ace. He rammed his head to China’s Li Gen after a stiff shot. He was sent to the showers afterwards and missed the action … Continue reading Time for the Law of Averages to Work FOR Calvin Abueva #GilasPilipinas
So I’m feeling the effects of Gilas Pilipinas right now and I must say, Terrence Romeo and his assassin’s mentality really made up for their almost defeat. There were a lot of takeaways from that China game. The Andray Blatche play where the big man dribbles the ball from the outside to the … Continue reading Site News: Gilas Pilipinas Fever
June Mar Fajardo and Andray Blatche’s loss is Japeth Aguilar’s gain. While his contributions aren’t as outstanding compared to the heroics of Terrence Romeo, Christian Standhardinger, Jayson Castro, and yeah… Raymond Almazan. “Japeth Like It’s Hot” delivered for Chot Reyes. Japeth made his National Team debut in 2009 (then called Powerade Team … Continue reading Japeth Aguilar’s time to shine
