Ateneo tower Ange Kouame being eyed as newest naturalized player

Antipolo Rep. Robbie Puno on Monday urged the House of Representatives to naturalize the Ateneo Blue Eagles’ Ivorian center Angelo Kouame. Puno has filed House Bill No. 5951 which seeks to grant Philippine citizenship to Kouame, stating that the 20-year-old Ivorian center would be an excellent addition to the roster of the Philippine national team for the 2023 FIBA World Cup. “We marveled at his performance that helped clinch a 16-0 sweep for the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the 82nd Season of the UAAP. Mr. Kouame may have had little knowledge of basketball before he came to our shores, but we cannot deny the immense potential he has shown by now,” said the lawmaker. FIBA Internal Regulations allows one naturalized player in a national basketball team, a rule which Puno said many member countries use to their advantage. To date, the Philippines has so far only fielded two naturalized players in Marcus Douthit and Andray Blatche. Puno maintained that in order to boost the national team’s chances at victory in the 2023 FIBA World Cup, a pool of naturalized players must be in place. “This pool of players would be valuable to our national team because the team would have more naturalized players to field in the case of injuries,” said the lawmaker......»»

Classic women s-only basketball shoe finally returns

Women’s basketball is extra strong these days and Jordan Brand is coming through with some great timing by bringing back an original gem from the late 1990s.

Lakers promote Pelinka to VP of Bball Ops

LA Lakers press release EL SEGUNDO – The Los Angeles Lakers have named Rob Pelinka Vice President, Basketball Operations and General Manager, it was announced today. Pelinka, who was hired as the Lakers General Manager in March 2017, has helped transform the Lakers roster and basketball operations department. Pelinka orchestrated one of the biggest trades in franchise history last offseason, acquiring six-time All-Star Anthony Davis and signing key free agents to the revamped roster. He also retooled the coaching staff, hiring a veteran group with a variety of experiences. During the 2018 offseason, Pelinka made one of the most significant signings in franchise history, with the acquisition of four-time MVP LeBron James. “I’m extremely pleased with the work Rob has done in order to put this franchise in a position for success, “said Lakers Governor Jeanie Buss. “His strong leadership skills, as well as his commitment to building a winning culture, both on and off the court, have brought us one step closer to being a championship-caliber team and I look forward to our continued work together.” Pelinka, 50, joined the Lakers after spending the greater part of two decades representing many of the NBA’s top talent.

While at Michigan, Pelinka earned a 1989 National Championship as a member of the Wolverines basketball team and also took part in three NCAA Final Fours (1989, 1992 & 1993)......»»
