The PacMan Strikes Again!
PacMan. When he gets on the ring, life in the Philippines virtually goes to a standstill. When his fight with Larios was held on a Sunday at 11 AM, we had to make an adjustment in one of our mass schedules. We adjusted the mass to 10 AM with a week's notice. The reason is simple. If we didn't do... Sign in to see full entry.

A Filipino Broadcaster as NBA Blog Squad
Jake Henson is no ordinary blogger. He is among the cream of Filipino news and broadcasters. Now I found out that he is writing for the NBA Blog Squad. Mr. Henson used to be a basketball analyst when our own Philippine Basketball Association was still beginning in the late 70s. I also remember him... Sign in to see full entry.

Pacquiao's tenth round win over Il Terrible Morales was sweet revenge. The whole Philippines it seemed watched the fight. At least where I live, no one can be seen on the streets during the course of the fight's broadcast on TV. Sign in to see full entry.

Hero Once More; The Locker View
Looks like Kobe is hero once more in a heart-stopping win over the Cleveland Cavs. And he did it with a sprained right wrist! However, there is the court view and the locker view of Kobe. Here is a post from the NBA blogs that I found revealing: After enumerating the reasons last week for Kobe's... Sign in to see full entry.

A New Kobe?
It is another 40+ points performance folks; and Kobe has become the youngest player to hit the 15000 plateau. The win over the Sixers showed an electrifying Kobe Bryant that helps the Lakers break a losing slump. Some days ago, he reached a milestone by scoring 40+ plints in three quarters. are we...

Could Have Been Impressive But...
I watched the Lakers-Wizards game via our cable's Chinese channel. That's how the Lakers have gone down as far as our sports channel is concerned. "Wanna watch the Lakers? Go to the Beijing channel! We will give you the Spurs, the Heat, and the Pistons. But the Lakers? Not this year." And so on...... Sign in to see full entry.

In a Battle of Has-Beens the Team that plays as a Team wins...
Which was the better team in the Lakers-Bulls match? The Bulls of course because the Lakers was all-Kobe Bryant: "I really don't want to shoot the ball that many times," Bryant said. "It's important for other people to step up and make contributions. With me, taking 30-something shots is the key to... Sign in to see full entry.

Our TV Channels Aren't Showing Much Of The Lakers
Due to the economic crunch, our Basketball TV Networks won't be showing much of the Laker games this year. Our basketball TV honchos are choosing the games they will be subscribing to on the basis of last year's results and on their choice of the teams most likely to end up in the semis. And the...

Together Again: Kobe and Jackson
It was inevitable. Buss's daughter won't have any other coach, and Jackson himself would prefer L.A. to any other (if this article is right ). And Kobe? Kobe can't make the Lakers win, everyone knows that. He just wanted to be captain of the team, and now that he is, Jackson can do the coaching job.... Sign in to see full entry.

So It Is Spurs vs. Pistons
This is going to be an interesting series. These are the two teams who will be sharing with the Lakers the merit of having dominated the NBA in the decade 2000-2010. Right now, the Pistons want to defend their title; a back-to-back championship is in order. They might even want to go beyond the... Sign in to see full entry.
