CJ Perez, Bolick lead 48 hopefuls to 2018 PBA Rookie Draft

THE cast has been set as a total of 48 hopefuls made themselves available for the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft. The University of the Philippines’ Paul Desiderio and Diego Dario were the last ones to submit their names over the weekend as this year’s applicants surpassed last season’s list of 44. The league’s decision to extend the deadline for local players to submit their applications from December 3 to 10 allowed both Desiderio and Dario to make the list at the last minute after playing for the Fighting Maroons in the UAAP Season 81 men’s basketball finals against eventual champion Ateneo Blue Eagles. Official list of applicants however, won’t be released by the league until Dec. 14 or two days before the draft proceedings to be held at the Robinson’s Place Manila, which formally sets in motion the PBA’s 44th season. All rookie hopefuls will also undergo the traditional Draft Combine scheduled Dec. 12 to 13 at the Hoops Center in Mandaluyong. The trio of CJ Perez, Bobby Ray Parks, and Robert Bolick lead the Class of 2018, with Columbian Dyip owning the right to the year’s no. 1 overall pick. Trevis Jackson, Matt Salem, Bong Quinto, Robbie Manalang, Abu Tratter, John Paul Calvo, Michael Calisaan, Teytey Teodoro, Javee Mocon, and Carlos Isit were among the early players who submitted their applications. Incidentally, three players with the same surname are included in the draft, namely, Kyles Lao of University of the Philippines, Kent Jefferson Lao of University of Santo Tomas, and Edrian Lao of University of the Visayas. Last year, Fil-German Christian Standhardinger was selected by San Miguel as the top rookie pick......»»

ABL: Door remains open for Brownlee’s return to Alab

Alab Pilipinas was as good as advertised in just their first game in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League. The Filipinos scared off visiting CLS of Indonesia by a score of 94-67 as returning reinforcement Renaldo Balkman picked up where he left off and new import PJ Ramos powered his way through anything and everything last Sunday. 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. With those two being both being forces, back-to-back Local MVP Ray Parks Jr. didn’t even have to do much with just 10 points and two assists. Despite the resounding rout that showed off their new and improved firepower, the Filipinos could actually get even scarier. Justin Brownlee, he who helped both Ginebra and Alab in winning championships, is not closing the door on another tour of duty. “For sure, man, for sure,” he answered to reporters after getting asked if he will be ready and raring to suit up once more for the Philippines. “I hope so. It’s a great group of guys and it looks like they’re having fun out there.” A year ago, it was Brownlee and Balkman’s entry that propelled the Filipinos to their breakthrough title. Now, Brownlee’s return may very well push Alab to uncharted territory – whether that be historic back-to-back championships or a historic season sweep. Of course, nothing is set in stone and before the beginning of the season, head coach Jimmy Alapag said they were “sticking with PJ and Balk.” Still, just the thought that there’s a chance all of Brownlee, Balkman, Ramos, and Parks Jr. could be on the court together has got to send chills down the spines of opponents. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Reenacted budget in 2019 to push up to 400K Filipinos into poverty

Reenacting the 2018 national budget for next year will not only slow down economic growth as government spending gets reduced, but also lead to job losses and push hundreds of thousands to poverty. Department of Budget and Management (DBM) estimates showed that expenditures in 2019 will be cut by a total of P219.8 billion if a reenacted budget would be spent instead of passing the proposed P3.757-trillion cash-based appropriations. In particular, disbursements for personnel services will be reduced by P54.4 billion; maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) by P14.3 billion; subsidies by P28.3 billion; and capital outlays by P122.9 billion. Based on estimates of the st...Keep on reading: Reenacted budget in 2019 to push up to 400K Filipinos into poverty.....»»

Best design ever—a grateful heart
