UAAP: Even in coaching, Ateneo has a next man up

Ateneo de Manila University was yet again not at full strength on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. And yet, the Blue Eagles had more than enough to pound on University of Sto. Tomas by 40 points, 102-62. Throughout the tournament, the defending champions have had to overcome the absences of the likes of Thirdy Ravena, Raffy Verano, and Nieto twins Mike and Matt for certain contests. And this time around, they had to make up for the absence of head coach Tab Baldwin who was not in the venue due to an illness. “It’s kind of funny that we (have been) missing a lot of players for the season tapos ngayon, coach naman yung wala,” assistant coach Sandy Arrespacochaga, who called the shots instead, said post-game. Just like they did when some of their players were missing, though, Ateneo did not panic and stood tall. And just as Tyler Tio stepped up when Nieto wasn’t around and William Navarro came through when Ravena and Verano were out, coach Sandy did his best to make sure they didn’t skip a beat. Of course, the always amiable mentor had help from the players. “We’re happy with the win because one of the first things we told them is that coach Tab (isn’t here), but his system is already in place,” he said. Indeed, the Blue Eagles just did what coach Tab would have expected from them, scoring 16 unanswered points in the first six minutes and never looking back. “We wanted the players to step up because this time around, next man up was everyone else as the shoe we’re trying to fill was coach Tab’s,” coach Sandy said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NBA athletes, usually at the receiving end of praises from millions of people, are no exceptions to being fans and having fans. There are opportunities for NBA players get to interact with other sporting icons outside of basketball, especially when the league travels to different countries for its regular season games or other events.

PBA: The story behind Phelps uber-limited LeBrons

Phoenix import Eugene Phelps is quite the player and character. He's a walking bucket, capable of scoring up to 50 points with an additional 20 rebounds or so. His nickname is El Destructor and wears P30,000 Gucci headbands to games while scoring 50. [Related: PBA: Phelps drops a cool 50 points in P30,000 headband] Yep, Phelps is quite the player and character. Recently, Phelps' character has been reflected in his footwear. El Destructor regularly wears heat on his feet and in the current 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, he's been spotted wearing gems like the Nike Kyrie 3 Mamba Mentality. However, the best shoe he pulled out so far has to be the special Nike LeBron 11 "2K14" which he wore for a couple of games in the season-ending joust. The flashy animal-printed shoe was releaed a couple of years back when LeBron James, then with the Miami Heat, graced the cover of the popular basketball video game. Limited to only 2,014 pairs, players had to earn milestones in-game in order to have a chance to purchase the shoes. Overall, about 80 hours was needed in order to complete all tasks. Asked about his uber-limited pair, Phelps told ABS-CBN Sports that he got his 2K14s off the secondary market. Considering he plays actual basketball, he probably didn't have much time playing simulated ball when he's out there doing the real thing. "2014 I think because LeBron was on the NBA [2K] cover. I collect shoes at home and then obviously on the court. I just like shoes," Phelps told ABS-CBN Sports. "I bought them off of eBay I think for like $350 (PHP 19,000) so I got lucky on those," he added. Phelps wears a size 14 and his size is currently listed at $400 (PHP 22,000) at StockX with the last sale going for $600 (P33,000). There's no size 14 listed at Flight Club but pairs at size 13 and 15 are both listed for $600 each. El Destructor certainly got lucky. He's been lucky on-court too while wearing his 2K14s and while he went 1-1 in them, he dropped his second 50-ball this conference while rocking his royal pair. He was supposed to wear them again Wednesday but he took them off. He struggled for only 18 points after he switched to an older pair of Hyperdunks. "First time I wore them I had 50. And then the second time I had 37. But the gym it felt weird, it kept on slipping in the first half so I had to switch them up," Phelps said. A sneakerhead through and through, Phelps is not afraid to wear prized pairs on court. El Destructor mentioned that he once destroyed a pair of Nike Kobe 6 "Grinch" on court and he had to prematurely retire them. The original Kobe Grinch of course, is widely regarded as the best Kobe release from Nike of all time. Those go for anywhere from $900 (PHP 49,500) to over $1,000 (PHP 55,000) in Phelps' size. "My favorites? I played with the Grinches, the Kobe Grinches my first game but they ripped. So I had to throw those away," Phelps said. "I just threw them in my closet because the whole sole is ripped. But I guess I can get them fixed and glued. But if I get them glued obviously I won't play in them again because they might rip again. I'll probably clean them, get them glued together, and walk in them or something," he added. With Phoenix in the playoffs and targeting a breakthrough semifinals appearance in the PBA, Phelps is looking forward to wearing more heat on court. It would be best to start paying attention. "I'll probably get some Kyries or Jordans for the semis [if we make it] but my size is kinda hard to find out here [in Manila]. So probably I'll buy from home and get them shipped. I'll look online to see what I can find. If I can find some heat, I'll get some heat for sure," he said. "I'll probably have some more heat for y'all if we go to the semis. I got heat for y'all," Phelps added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
