2017 PBA Draft: Zero in on Louie Vigil

  Louie Vigil has joined the 2017 PBA Draft but for some insane reason, his name isn’t on the final list of applicants.

2017 PBA Draft (Mock Draft 2.0)

Kia needs an import.   Believe that.   So whether they keep this pick or trade it selection for a… starting lineup, Standhardinger should be their man.   Why would you pass on Standhardinger?   And let me just say this: If TNT has Jayson Castro… and Meralco has Baser Amer… then NLEX come draft … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft (Mock Draft 2.0)

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Two

Spoiler alert: The last two entries on this list has the letters M, B, and A connected to it. It’s also in some ways associated with Fil-Shams, Bureau of Immigration, expansion squads, and the uselessness of the PBA Draft.   Before this time, the PBA is the only professional basketball in league in the Philippines. … Continue reading 10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Two

2017 PBA Draft: Why the Ranidel de Ocampo trade is good for TNT

  Ranidel De Ocampo has been traded to the Meralco Bolts…   … and it’s not the end of the world.   At least the former Gilas Pilipinas mainstay left Talk N Text to join its sister squad.   Tell this to James Yap… or Danny Seigle for that matter... who were unceremoniously dropped by … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Why the Ranidel de Ocampo trade is good for TNT

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Four

It was further reinforced with the inauguration of the Metropolitan Basketball Association or MBA. Many PBA players jumped to the … Continue reading 10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Four

2017 PBA Draft: Zero in on Jeron Teng

  I don’t know what happened to the PBA career of Jeric Teng.   I thought for sure he’s going to be a first round pick in the 2013 PBA Draft.   His heroics almost pushed the UST Growling Tigers to UAAP heaven for two consecutive seasons. He fine-tuned his craft in the PBA D-League. … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Zero in on Jeron Teng

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Five

  The 2014 PBA Draft is not a bad draft.   It was abysmal!   GlobalPort Batang Pier selected Stanley Pringle as the first overall pick of the 2014 PBA Draft. Not only did he win his batch’s Top Rookie honor… he also claimed a Mythical Second Team spot that season.   But what about … Continue reading 10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Five
