2018 PBA Draft Baller Breakdown: Rodolfo “Jjay” Alejandro

Another former King Bulldog, Jjay Alejandro has always been known as a scorer. Ever since his days with Malayan College, Jjay could light up the scoreboard, connecting from inside and out; while at the same time making a name for himself as a deadly shooter. While he joined the NU Bulldogs primarily as an outside threat, he improved his scoring in the college ranks year in and year out, averaging almost 17 points per game in his final year. Coincidentally, his final year was played under the mentorship of multi-titled coach, Jamike Jarin, who developed Jjay no longer just as a scorer, but more of a playmaker and leader. Not only was he allowed to play point guard more often, Coach Jamike highlighted his leadership, designating him Team Captain in his senior year.   STRENGTHS Season 80 (his final year) saw Jjay’s usage rate skyrocket, logging an average 33 minutes, scoring 17 points, grabbing 6.4 rebounds, and dishing out 6.7 assists per contest. He also shot close to 40 percent from the field and 27.5 percent from downtown, with almost two 3-pointers a game. Most impressive in my opinion was the emergence of his passing ability, which had been underrated throughout his career. With the ball in his hand more often, Jjay was able to create more opportunities for himself and his teammates by getting into the paint, where he showed a lot of craftiness and composure in traffic. As a result, he more than doubled his assist numbers from season 79. AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT Areas which he will need to improve on as he makes the jump to the PBA are primarily his strength and his defense. While Jjay is a deft pickpocket who can swipe at ballhandlers or play the passing lanes, he will have to hold his own on a nightly basis against stronger and taller guards. That means he’ll have to work on his on-ball defense, whether perimeter or in the post. If he wants to carve out a regular spot in the rotation, he’ll have to play point guard effectively, while polishing his jumper such that he’ll have a quicker release, as defenders are much quicker and smarter in the pros -- think Kevin Alas when he made the jump from college ball. That means tightening his handles, and improving not just his court vision, but his overall control of the game. One thing he’s definitely got going for him though is his ability to make plays in the clutch. Jjay Alejandro has never been known to shy away from big moments, and he will be more than willing to take and make big shots to decide the outcome of a game. That is one thing PBA teams are always on the lookout for.  .....»»

Alab scares off visiting Indonesians for strong start in ABL title defense

STA. ROSA, LAGUNA – In just its first game in the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League, Alab Pilipinas is already as good as advertised. Renaldo Balkman picked up where he left off, PJ Ramos powered his way through anything and everything, and the Filipinos pounded on outmatched CLS of Indonesia for a 94-67 decision on Sunday at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex here. The Philippines wasted no time in showing off its new and improved firepower as Balkman, their returning reinforcement, did damage from the outside just as Ramos, their new hulking help, had his way inside. Those two merged for 17 points in the opening salvo, by themselves outscoring the Knights who only mustered 14 in the same timeframe. The Alab lead would only balloon to as much as 31. Balkman wound up with 33 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals, and three blocks while Ramos had 20 markers, 13 boards, and five dimes. Back-to-back Ray Parks Jr. Local MVP, with just 10 points and two assists, didn’t even have to do much for the Filipinos to get off its title defense off on the right foot. Maxie Esho topped the scoring column for the Indonesians with 20 points. They fall to 1-4 in the season. The two teams meet again a week from now, only that time, in Surabaya. BOX SCORES ALAB PILIPINAS 94 – Balkman 33, Ramos 20, Parks Jr. 10, Domingo 6, Rosser 6, Alvano 5, Tiongson 4, Javelona 4, Urbiztondo 3, Torres 3, Alabanza 0, Rivero 0 CLS KNIGHTS 67 – Esho 20, Hurt 19, Utomo 12, Brandon 7, Baskoro 3, Jawato 2, Wong 2, Panagan 2, Kurniawan 0, Hidayat 0, Nugroho 0 QUARTER SCORES: 23-14, 46-27, 74-67, 94-67 —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riego.....»»

I've always thought of "lifestyle" as the same as "culture," but with better shoes and a more interesting haircut.   Thirty-three years of covering subcultural bubblings from the fringe hasn't changed this view much.   Over the years, I have seen how what was once "alternative" is cannibalized and absorbed by the mainstream.   In 1985, when PDI was just aborning, punks were considered weird, even satanic.
