2017 PBA Draft: Bearable Kia-San Miguel trade options

  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

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)

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

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

2017 PBA Draft: Why Kia needs to trade the top pick (assuming they get it)

  Christian Standhardinger’s unorthodox free throw, almost no-miss lay-ins, and unrelenting rebounding goodness could make him the top pick spot of the 2017 PBA Draft.   It’s almost certain that Kia will waste his talents though. But what if… just what if… Kia tries to trade him for a horde of role players?   Maybe … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Why Kia needs to trade the top pick (assuming they get it)

Thoughts: Christian Standhardinger to the Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions

  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.   Instead, Christian Standhardinger will play for the ASEAN Basketball League’s … Continue reading Thoughts: Christian Standhardinger to the Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions

#GilasPilipinas: Beat Oh Se Keun and Korea!

  Oh I guess we have to face the inevitable.   Gilas Pilipinas will take on Korea and the winner will advance to the semifinal round.   Wow.   So Korea drubbed Japan, 81 to 68. Oh Se Keun, Lee Jong Hyun and Kim Sun Hyung to the shock of no one... paved the way … Continue reading #GilasPilipinas: Beat Oh Se Keun and Korea!

Christian Standhardinger’s learning process

  So Gilas Pilipinas got back from their dismal outing against South Korea by whipping Iraq. The thing about this match however is the physicality. Carl Bryan Cruz did a lot of things aside from hitting jumpers and that probably sent the enemies to dig deep and bring out their Oscar-bait acting.   At one … Continue reading Christian Standhardinger’s learning process
