Philippines, Hong Kong fight over solo second in ABL

Already with victories versus the league-leaders and the defending champions, Alab Pilipinas are casting their line for another big fish in the 2016 Asean Basketball League. Ray Parks Jr. and company are in Hong Kong for their first meeting with the Eastern Long Lions scheduled on Sunday. The Philippines pits its three-game winning streak against a Hong Kong side determined to get back on track at 8:00 PM. All of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/abl. Since the arrival of American reinforcements Sampson Carter and James Hughes, the Filipinos have yet to taste defeat. Ringing off win after win after win, they have improved their record to 5-2 and their standing to a share of second. Holding the same card is Hong Kong which wants nothing more than to separate itself once more from its fellow league newcomer. Stinging off another loss at the hands of Singapore, they are banking on homecourt advantage to help them avoid a losing slide. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

Coaches association announces Michael H. Goldberg Award

em>NBCA press release /em> The National Basketball Coaches Association (“NBCA”) is proud to announce the inception of the Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award. The Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award will be an annual award given to honor the most successful Head Coach in the National Basketball Association (“NBA”) as voted upon by his or her peers. It will be the only award chosen entirely by NBA Coaches. Every season, Head Coaches representing all 30 NBA Teams will select the winner. The winner of the 2017 Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award will be announced at the conclusion of the 2016-2017 NBA regular season. This award will recognize the dedication and hard work of NBA Head Coaches. The Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award will be presented to a Coach who helped guide his or her players to a higher level of performance on-the-court and showed outstanding service and dedication to the community off-the-court. The Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award is named after the esteemed Michael H. Goldberg, the long-time Executive Director of the National Basketball Coaches Association (a group that encompasses all Head and Assistant Coaches in the NBA and its alumni group). In 1980, six years after the NBCA was founded, Michael H. Goldberg became its first Executive Director. Building upon the existing foundation of the NBCA, he guided it during the years of the greatest growth in professional basketball. He helped gain significant benefits for NBA Coaches, including billions of dollars in increased retirement funds, and disability insurance. And so, the Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award honors the substantial contributions of Mr. Goldberg, who set the standard for loyalty, integrity, passionate representation, and tireless promotion of NBA Coaching. “This award honors the life work of a great leader, tireless foot soldier for the best interests of Coaches and the NBA, and most importantly, a trusted friend,” said NBCA President Coach Rick Carlisle. “The Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award will have special meaning because of its namesake and the fact that it is voted on by all Head Coaches.” Mr. Goldberg graduated from New York University in 1963 and later attended St. John's University School of Law, receiving his law degree in 1966. After law school, he joined the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (“SEC”) where he was a Branch Chief. He left the SEC in 1972 and became General Counsel for the American Basketball Association (“ABA”). Mr. Goldberg guided the ABA along with its late Commissioner, Dave DeBusschere, until the league merged with the NBA in 1976. Through the agency he founded, National Media Group, Inc., Mr. Goldberg has been a fixture in the business of sports marketing working over the years with a wide variety of prominent corporate sponsors and licensees wishing to promote their products and services through sports/entertainment tie-ins. Among a long list of clients are IBM, American Express, Schick, Fleer Trading Cards, Gatorade, Nike, Self Magazine, Sports Illustrated, the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB. The agency also played a key role in the growth of the sport of basketball in the US and abroad, organizing the Gatorade World Coaches Clinic program, and launching the highly successful NBA/FIBA McDonalds Basketball Championship. He now devotes himself primarily to his work on behalf of the NBCA. “Michael Goldberg is a legend in basketball circles and has distinguished himself by his relentless advocacy on behalf of NBA coaches and his deep caring for everyone involved with our game,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “This new award reflects his vital and everlasting contributions to the NBA.” The Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award will be presented to a Head Coach who exemplifies the same high quality of integrity and excellence that Michael H. Goldberg exhibited during his highly respected career. “It is truly an honor and a privilege to be recognized by this award,” said Michael H. Goldberg, NBCA Executive Director. “I have been very fortunate to work with the National Basketball Coaches Association for over thirty-five years. During this time, I have found the Coaches to be passionate, wise, and caring leaders. This award, determined by peer vote, is tremendously meaningful to our NBA Coaches, the League, as well as for my family and me.” .....»»

Cawaling delivers the goods as Alab stretches streak to three

Ray Parks Jr. did not score in double-digits for the first time in the 2016-2017 Asean Basketball League. And yet, there was still no problem for Alab Pilipinas. JR Cawaling stepped up to the plate and knocked every pitch out of the park as the Filipinos had all the answers for defending champion and home team Malaysia in a 65-54 decision on Sunday. Cawaling scored 11 points built on three triples, none bigger than his last one inside the last two minutes that punctuated a 10-3 run for the Philippines and re-established a 63-51 lead. Parks Jr. only had nine points in what was his lowest-scoring game in the tournament. The former Far Eastern University standout and the rest of the reserves had his back, however, and outplayed their counterparts, 31-13. With Alab starting slow, it was also Cawaling standout who sparked the 18-6 second quarter surge that snared away a 28-22 advantage. They would never relinquish the lead all the way to their third win in a row and fifth win in seven games overall. Although falling short of double-digits in scoring, Parks Jr. collared 10 rebounds while imports Sampson Carter and James Hughes also combined to contribute 15 points and 15 rebounds. The Filipinos have now scored back-to-back wins against the defending champion Dragons and runner-up Singapore. They remain in third-place, but are breathing down the necks of 5-1 Hong Kong and 7-2 Slingers. Malaysia dropped to 1-5 in its title defense. BOX SCORES ALAB PILIPINAS 65 — Cawaling 11, Parks 9, Carter 9, Acuna 6, Hughes 6, Thiele 6, Hubalde 5, Domingo 5, Fortuna 4, Celiz 4, Knuttel 0. MALAYSIA DRAGONS 54 — Melvin 15, Spencer 11, Yeo 9, Loh 7, Goldstein 6, Ting 4, Teo 2, Ma 0. QUARTER SCORES: 16-18, 32-28, 51-41, 65-54. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»
