PBA: Wright and Phoenix finally showing maturity

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — Phoenix badly wanted maturity to come with their growth as a team, especially after the Fuel Masters somehow botched a twie-to-beat edge as the no. 2 seed to end last season in teh 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. Early in the 2019 Philippine Cup, it appears that the Fuel Masters have found some of that maturity and are using that to win close games in the All-Filipino. Two games into the new season, Phoenix already has two overtimes. The Fuel Masters won both, allowing them to take over first place so far. “Phoenix of the past would’ve lost that game,” Wright said of their overtime win against TNT Saturday at the Ynares Center here. “After Pogoy hit that shot to tie the game, we would’ve crumbled by then. But we stuck together, we’re becoming more experience and we’re becoming more of a veteran team,” he added. Another great sign for Phoenix has been the team’s conditioning. Also known as a pressing team, the Fuel Masters have shown great endurance despite playing back-to-back overtime games. Phoenix certainly looked like the fresher team during the extra five minutes in separate wins against Meralco and TNT. “I’m just happy we won, because like you said, back-to-back overtime games. We really have to dig down deep in those kind of situations. I’m happy that we looked like the more conditioned team,” Wright said. “We came off an overtime game so we’re much more experienced in that department than they are. Luckily they’re tired towards the end of the game and they were starting to miss their shots. That’s just credit to our strength and conditioning coaches and how we run our practices. We thought we’re in really good shape today,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Online bazaar peddles fake news as bizarre marketing ploy

MANILA, Philippines--E-retailer Promo Shopping Bazaar has a bizarre way of promoting its products--peddling fake contents. The website, which plugs its merchandise on its Facebook page, says it sells books online. But it looks like the shop employs a marketing strategy that is twisted. In its bid to sell its e-book Universal Beauty, supposedly authored by newly-crowned Miss Universe Catriona Gray, Promo Shopping Bazaar placed 10 ads on Facebook. In one of its sponsored contents, the online shopping startup digitally manipulated an INQUIRER.net breaking news story about Gray bagging the Miss Universe 2018 crown in a competition held in Bangkok last December 17.
