Miss the PBA yet? Don't worry as there's more action coming your way starting Friday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City. The 2018 PBA Governors' Cup will tip off this weekend and we have prolific imports in town, 12 of them to be exact. Get to know who they are before we start the third and final conference for this season.   Justin Brownlee --- Ginebra By now, Justin Brownlee needs no introduction but here goes anyway for the benefit of those who don't know him for some reason. Brownlee is a three-time PBA champion for the Gin Kings and a one-time Best Import. His first two titles came in the Governors' Cup. The first one was in 2016 when he hit "The Shot" in Game 6. The second one was last year when he led the barangay to a Game 7 win in front of more than 50,000 fans at the Philippine Arena. He's a Ginebra legend.   Allen Durham --- Meralco The reigning two-time Best Import is back for the Bolts and he's looking to complete some unfinished business. Durham has led Meralco to two Governors' Cup Finals in his previous two stints in the PBA but each time, the Bolts lost to Ginebra for the title. Is third time the charm for Allen Durham and Meralco?   AZ Reid --- San Miguel Arizona Reid won two Best Imports back when he was still with Rain or Shine and he won his first Governors' Cup title when he switched over to San Miguel. Now, the high-scoring import is back for the Beermen after a one-year hiatus. He has some business to finish here and at the top of the list is regaining his lost PBA championship.   Eugene Phelps --- Phoenix El Destructor first made a name for himself in the Governors' Cup. The Commissioner's Cup might not be his best cup of tea but when it comes to the season-ending conference, Eugene Phelps has proven before that he's a force to be reckoned with. With an upgraded local lineup and perhaps better durability this time around, El Destructor might just become extra destructive to the oppposition.   Henry Walker --- Blackwater The Elite made their second playoff appearance last year in the Governors' Cup with Henry Walker. As the no. 8 seed, they were a few minutes away from stunning no. 1 Meralco to go to the semis. Mr. Inspiration has provided nothing but positive stuff for Blackwater and with a longer build up, the Elite might be ready to take the next step in the Governors' Cup in order to salvage what has been a lost season.   Mike Harris --- Alaska The Aces are bringing in Mike Harris as reinforcement in the Governors' Cup. Harris has NBA experience with the Houston Rockets and the Utah Jazz. He has tremendous international experience and the PBA is only the latest in his long list of stops. He has a career average of 3.4 points in the NBA, playing a total of 54 games spread across five seasons.   Akeem Wright --- Columbian The Dyip will have 33-year-old Akeem Wright for the Governors' Cup. Wright was undrafted in the 2007 NBA Draft and since then, he's built an international career with stops in the Middle East and Europe.   Romeo Travis --- Magnolia A close buddy of LeBron James, Romeo Travis is back in the PBA. The first time, he played for Alaska and won Best Import but lost in the Finals to San Miguel Beer  back in 2015. Now, Travis will suit up for the Magnolia Hotshots. Travis of course is part of the LeBron's high school team at St. Vincent-St. Mary.   Olu Ashaolu --- NLEX We've seen Olu in the Commissioner's Cup as he played NLEX's last game of the conference as part of the team's prep for the Governors' Cup. Ashaolu played for Lousiana Tech and Oregon and college and went undrafted in the 2012 NBA Draft.   Rashad Woods --- Northport The Batang Pier will go with Rashad Woods for the Governors' Cup. Woods has had memorable stints in Mexico and in the Middle East, where he's known as the "Arab Ace."   J'Nathan Bullock --- Rain or Shine Bullock is back for a second stint with ROS. Last season, Bullock and the Elasto Painters were eliminated in the quarterfinals but not after erasing TNT's twice-to-beat advantage in the playoffs. Bullock will join a ROS team that will be coming off an Asian Games campaign in Indonesia.   Mike Glover --- TNT Glover was Globalport's replacement import for Globalport two years ago but now, he'll start for the KaTropa in the 2018 Governors' Cup. The hulking forward went for 25.6 points and 14.0 rebounds in his first PBA tour.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Victolero, Magnolia undeterred by shock loss to Meralco as path to top 4 still clear

ANTIPOLO---Magnolia's 94-88 loss to downtrodden Meralco in the PBA Governors' Cup sure gave Chito Victolero things to ponder on, but it wasn't enough to rough up the team's morale. The topseeded Hotshots held a half-game lead over Barangay Ginebra prior to their game against the Bolts on Friday at Ynares Center here, but the surprising setback pulled them to a tie at 7-2. But Victolero was unbothered with the outcome knowing they can still clinch a twice-to-beat advantage, which is given to the top four teams, for the quarterfinals. "Our chance is still on our hands," said Victolero, whose team will still face TNT and the Gin Kings, in Filipino.

PBA: Despite frustrations, Wright would love to come Philippines another shot

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- Akeem Wright has never experienced a long losing skid in his basketball career and if you ask him, his maiden PBA stint shouldn't have started with nine straight losses. Wright and the Columbian Dyip finally scored a win in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, beating Rain or Shine Friday at the Ynares Center here. The victory pushed Columbian to 1-9 in the season-ending conference but Wright argues that the Dyip could have done better if some early games had gone their way and not resulted in some very close losses. "0-9? No. Never. This is my first time," Wright said when asked if he's in this situation before in his career. "But there's a lot of young guys you know, you can go to the games we lost earlier. We were up 15 against Meralco, we up nine on NLEX in the third quarter, it's stuff like that you can look back on and say we were there. My personal feeling is we should have broke that streak [earlier]. There's a lot of games that I wish we have back but we can't. Even though we lost a lot of games I felt we continued to play hard," he added. Despite a rough outing in the PBA, Wright says he would love to come back. If Columbian wants him back for next season, Akeem is there. If not, he's fine with joining another team as long as he gets to have another shot in the Philippines. "The losing has been frustrating but overall my experience has been great," he said. "My experience has been great, if Columbian would want me back, I would love to come back. If not maybe another team, we'll see but I would love to come back," Wright added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
