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. Maybe now you can see his name… but when the final list was initially introduced, I counted all the entries and it was only 43.   I mean… what gives?   It’s … Continue reading 2017 PBA Draft: Zero in on Louie Vigil

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Three

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Four

  My fourth-worst draft is the event that ruined the PBA’s status.   Since its inception in 1975, we have been programmed to understand that the PBA is the place for the best Philippine ballers. 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

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Seven

    1986 is a defining year for our country. Ferdinand Marcos fled the Philippines to “give” Cory Aquino the presidency (haha) and the PBA is a shell of its former self.   Founding franchises Tanduay and Great Taste alongside Ginebra, Manila Beer, Shell, and the debuting Alaska squad were tasked to keep the league … Continue reading 10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Seven

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Eight

  The 1987 PBA Draft produced Hall of Famer Allan Caidic and potential Hall of Famer Al Solis. But with just five drafted players and a record-low eight applicants, the prestige of the draft was somewhat tarnished.   The 1985 PBA Draft on the other hand failed to give the spectacle its inaugural oomph. Shell … Continue reading 10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Eight
