    Thanks Bro.




    @JL betters lucks nexts times

    lol

    We should have watched live game 7, almost a shocker again if Aces won.

    Amazing Aces really threatened the Beermen until the dying seconds.

    SMB is still underachieving though, with that line up they should have won handily.

    I truly believe Alaska earned more fans in that series than SMB.

    First time for me to see Ginebra under Tim Cone was vs San Miguel (thanks to YouTube live streaming by Kapatid International)

    I'm no basketball genius, but I felt like some players are confused with the triangle.

    ... And yes, some players must call it quits, or accept a lesser role...

    No idea how this move will help...

    I haven't watched the PBA for quite some time, but do yourselves a favor and watch that improbable Ginebra comeback from 11 points with only 43 seconds left, eventually winning the game in overtime on a buzzer beater. Now that's entertainment. Just google the sports5 youtube channel: the 4th quarter and OT can be viewed in separate videos.

    I just lost all my respect for the PBA ever since Pacman put up his own team and made himself playing asst. coach lol. This is a pro league not an inter bgy league where you can become a manager put up your own team and make yourself an playing coach or a regular part of the starting five lol.

    I'm honestly expecting that there's a "gentleman's agreement" for SMB to take their players later this year... (ehem Monfort, Intal and Garcia)...

    But thanks to the recent success of Rain or Shine, Global Port and Alaska... I'm hoping this sale brings more balance to the league next year.

    Not much pick and roll in the PBA. Mostly isolation plays.

    Ivan Johnson has been banned for life in the PBA.

    Quick verdict handed by the new Commissioner.
