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)

Thoughts: Imports losing their cool is so uncool

  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

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)
