MVP wants fresh blood to lead SBP

SAMAHANG Basketboll ng Pilipinas head Manuel V. Pangilinan announced that he will step down as president of the national organization during a press conference at the PLDT head office yesterday.

Pangilinan’s term as president lapsed in February and he is disallowed from seeking another term as stated in the charter drafted by the SBP after it took the place of the Basketball Association of the Philippines as the FIBA-recognized body for Philippine basketball.

“It’s for the best that I retire. We should follow the rules and prove to everybody else that I’m not here to tweak or tinker with them. I don’t want to violate the rules that we have crafted,” said Pangilinan.

Rising Lakers Guard D'Angelo Russell just wants to stay healthy, remain productive

 According to LakersNation.com reporter Serena Winters, D’Angelo Russell showed signs of improvement with his glute injury, but status for tomorrow’s game is to be determined:

Rookie D’Angelo Russell gave fans, coaches and his teammates quite the scare on Tuesday night. Russell fell hard to the floor after trying to block Rudy Gobert’s shot by the basket and remained on the floor for some time while clearly in pain.


After witnessing Julius Randle go down with a season-ending injury in the team’s first regular-season game last year, everyone had a reason to be concerned by seeing Russell in pain on the floor.


Boxing-Pacman happy to call it quits, as planned to run in Senate.

BOXING icon Manny Pacquiao, who is seeking a Senate seat in next year’s elections, is likely to retire from the sport after one more fight next year to focus on his political career.
Pacquiao, 36, last fought in May when he lost to American Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a long awaited bout between the sport’s best two fighters, dubbed the Fight of the Century, that failed to match the hype.
Pacquiao underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff after the fight and had been expected to retire with little left to prove after achieving his long-stated goal of getting in the ring with Mayweather.

World Circuit Series champion

BMX flatland rider Viki Gómez of Spain is a two-time World Circuit Series champion who defines flatland biking as a “fight between mind, gravity, and physics combined with movement inertia; a way of surpassing the limits of your imagination.”

At the recently held Ride BMX NORA Cup Awards 2015, he was named “Number One Flatlander of the Year” by fellow pros for the second time since he was initially given the honor last 2013.

On TV5 news tonight, i analyzed what happened in Philippines-China gold medal game in Changsha ... I said while officiating was not championship caliber, it didn't decide the outcome of the game but made it easier for China to beat Gilas.

I mentioned Gilas held China to 38% FG shooting, its lowest in any game in the tournament and took away China's inside strength as Gilas even scored more pts in the paint 30-26 but to learn from this experience, Gilas must realize where it could've done better as it was outscored from beyond the arc by 9 pts and from the line by 6 pts ... that's a total of 15 pts and Gilas lost by 11 and Gilas missed 11 FTs ... the game was winnable for Gilas and the Philippines showed China can be beaten!‪


Post-FIBA Asia thoughts

By Michael Murillo
On Monday, members of Gilas Pilipinas who saw action at the recently concluded FIBA Asia Championship in Changsha-Hunan, China, came back to a hero’s welcome; a reception that was definitely not unwarranted considering how our gallant men represented in the high-profile tournament.

After two weeks of high-level Asian basketball play, the Tab Baldwin-coached Gilas finished runner-up after being beaten by host country China, 78-67, in the finals of the biennial continental joust last Saturday.

But while the finish was not the championship, and the automatic Olympic spot that went with it, that the Philippine national men’s basketball team was aiming for, still there is no diminishing the value of it, all told.


Manila one of the best places for cycling, says Vittorio Brumotti

WHILE ADMITTING to having no idea of the bike scene in the Philippines prior to coming here, world-renowned trials rider Vittorio Brumotti came away impressed with it after touching base with local bikers and negotiating the streets of Manila.

Recently visited the country to take part in the second annual run of the PhilBike Expo held at the SMX Convention Center from Oct. 2 to 4, Italian Brumotti showcased his skills along with star flatland riders Viki Gomez of Spain and Matthias Dandois of France.

But apart from sharing his talent to the local fans, 35-year-old Brumotti said he, too, learned a lot about the Philippine bike scene during his brief visit.

“I must admit that I did not hear much about the bike scene here in Manila prior to coming here,” Mr. Brumotti told BusinessWorld in an interview before one of his demonstrations at the PhilBike Expo at the weekend.



Why I was always reluctant to succumb to the clamor to "fire the coach"!

All in all I spent about seven years as team governor and manager of the Coca-Cola PBA franchise which fielded a professional team from 2002 (the Coca-Cola Tigers coached by Chot Reyes which were All Filipino Champions in 2002) to 2012 (the Powerade Tigers coached by Bo Perasol which were All Filipino runner ups in 2012). In between we had coach Binky Favis and coach Kenneth Kenneth Celera Duremdes.
