The 17 best PBA photos of 2017

Sure, the PBA has seen some trying times this year but to say  that the league is dying would be complete exaggeration. The games were still good. the stories were still compelling, and the stars were still shining bright. Was it a perfect season? Not a chance. But the PBA is still doing relative well. Well enough that everyone was happy. For the most part. And to celebrate a year that has come and gone, here are some of the best photos captured by ABS-CBN Sports for 2017, in no particular order of course but all of them are great. Happy New Year and here's to another great year for the PBA and basketball in general. Let's do this.   James Yap playing outside the Purefoods franchise? Still weird. James Yap and PJ Simon playing against each other? Weirder.   Allein Maliksi is without a doubt the most unapologetic scorer in the PBA. He had a run in the Philippine Cup where he was setting new career highs for every game and Star was destroying opponents by 25 points. He's with Blackwater now though.   2017 was not a good year for Alaska. Still, it's nice to see Calvin Abueva still Beastin' out there. Never change, Calvin.   Now that they're both healthy at the same time, here's to seeing more head-to-head games between this two. The PBA and Philippine basketball in general needs more of June Mar Fajardo vs. Greg Slaughter.   Terrence Romeo: scoring champion, fashion icon, king of swag both on and off the court. My goodness, bro.   You think Justin Brownlee is clutch? Why don't you ask the barangay. Pretty sure they will say hell yes Justin Brownlee is clutch.   This photo pretty much sums up The Rematch for coacn Norman Black and the Meralco Bolts. We need to see a Ginebra-Meralco part 3 in the Governors' Cup for 2018. Please.   The Fast and the Furious forever. There are no words for this. Happy retirement, Mr. Helterbrand.   If everything goes according to plan, we can call this the smiles that launched a Grand Slam. The PBA better be ready for the super, superteam that is the San Miguel Beermen with Christian Standhardinger.   The Gin Kings might as well own the Philippine Arena. Ginebra is setting attendance records left and right at the massive INC facility. More importantly, they keep on winning there. The barangay is 5-1 in Bulacan including one Game 7 win for another championship.   James Yap used to be the face of the Purefoods franchise and Marc Pingris was the team's heart and soul. Now, Ping is all of that and then some.   Taken just moments before the Beermen completed a Philippine Cup hat trick to capture the Perpetual trophy. This San Miguel team is a special group.   Chito Narvasa's highly-controversial term as PBA Commissioner ended this year. However, perhaps his most controversial move was approving the much-maligned Kia-San Miguel trade for the no. 1 pick of the 2017 Draft. This was from the press conference that triggered the PBA Board impasse. Overall just not a good look. It was impactful, but not good.   He might be slowing down a little bit but Jayson Castro is still a force to be reckoned with. The Blur might just get to a new gear in 2018. Watch out.   He finally beat his inner demons and Mac Cardona found his way back in the PBA this year. Welcome back, Captain Hook.   Kiefer Ravena was ready for the PBA two years ago. Two games into his first pro season, the Phenom is already proving his worth. This was his first PBA dunk. There should be more to come.   Nash Racela is one brave soul. He spent the entire season trying to beat San Miguel teams in order to win a title for TNT. The KaTropa didn't end up winning anything but coach Nash sure got into the skin of the SMC teams. Here he is trying to plead for a foul because officials are supposedly favoring Ginebra. While that's not proven, if 2017 was any indication, 2018 should be even more fun for coach Nash and the San Miguel teams.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Kagitingan Reef may be China’s ‘intelligence hub’ in Spratlys — US think tank

The Kagitingan Reef (Fiery Cross Reef), the smallest of the "Big 3" artificial islands of China in the Spratlys, is likely the "intelligence/communications hub" of the regional superpower on its man-made islands, a US-based think tank said.   A large communications/sensor array was completed on Kagitingan Reef in 2017, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI).   On Friday, the AMTI released its analysis comparing their satellite photos with the aerial photos released by the Inquirer early this month.   "None of the other bases in the Spratlys so far has a comparable array, thou...Keep on reading: Kagitingan Reef may be China’s ‘intelligence hub’ in Spratlys — US think tank.....»»
