Pro-independence Hong Kong party faces possible ban

HONG KONG --- Authorities on Tuesday told a political party that advocates independence for Hong Kong the group might be banned on national security grounds, in one of the most severe steps against separatist voices since the territory returned to Chinese rule in 1997. In a letter to the leader of the Hong Kong National Party, 27-year-old Andy Chan, the territory's security bureau said the group has three weeks to make a case for why it should be allowed to operate. An official believes the party should be dissolved "in the interests of national security or public safety, public order or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others," the letter said.

PBA: Coach Leo on Finals: 'I think it will be a good series against Ginebra'

It's either San Miguel Beer head coach Leo Austria is stressed over the PBA semifinals or he just has a really, really high level of confidence. Or maybe he just thinks in advance. Anyway, it seems like coach Leo is already ready for a Commissioner's Cup Finals against Brgy. Ginebra. After taking a 2-0 semis lead against Alaska Monday, Austria casually mentioned the Gin Kings as their Finals opponents. Take note, San Miguel could still end up losing to the Aces and Ginebra is still only up 1-0 against top seed Rain or Shine in the other series. But asked if he has the championship already in mind with the Beermen one win away from the Finals, Austria is keeping his focus on the present series against Alaska. Can't say the same against the Ginebra-Rain or Shine series. "No, we're not thinking of the championship, dahil kung para sa amin, darating 'yan eh," Austria. "But I think it will be a good series against Ginebra, dahil alam naman natin they are the hottest team in the league right now, eight consecutive wins ano. And makikita mo, nag-beef up sila, so with the addition of Jeff Chan, so probably they are preparing their team for our zone defense against them," he added. It's either San Miguel head coach Leo Austria is stressed over the PBA semifinals or he just has a really, really high level of confidence. Or maybe he just thinks in advance. Anyway, it's funny. That's coach Leo for you. Back to the Alaska series, Austria is still bracing for an Aces comeback. This current rivalry has seen crazier things happen in the recent past. "Well, makikita mo naman talaga, lahat naman sinasabi, sabi nila super team kami against Alaska without Abueva and Banchero. And they keep on fighting back, and in the first half, lagi kaming nalalamangan nila. So I have to admire, 'yung trabaho ng mga coaching staff dahil talagang scouted nila, and alam nila kung anong ginagawa namin, but maybe because of the superior talent we have, 'yun ang nagpe-prevail," Austria said. "But we should not be matuwa dito sa talent na pinapakita namin, dahil come championship game, so it's a different story. And we still have to work hard, especially on defense," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Gin Kings destroy no. 1 ROS to start semis

There's still no stopping Ginebra. The Gin Kings rolled past no. 1 Rain or Shine Sunday to start their 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals series, scoring a nice 102-89 victory at the Big Dome. With Jeff Chan firing at will in the fourth, Ginebra finally pulled away to take an early 1-0 lead in the best-of-5 series. The win was also the eighth straight for the Gin Kings dating back to the elimination round where they had to climb out of a 1-5 hole to make the playoffs as the no. 5 seed. Ginebra got off to a fast start, firing a 22-7 run right out of the gate. Rain or Shine settled down after that initial storm from the Gin Kings, keeping things close until the fourth. However, led by Chan's 10 points in the final 12 minutes, Ginebra managed to break the game wide open again by firing a 16-0 blast to take its largest lead of the night at 24 points, 102-78. "Best part about doing this game tonight was being able to do it without Japeth. He's been out of practice since our last game against Meralco, he got hit in his Achilles so he had some significant swelling in his Achilles tendon area," head coach Tim Cone said. "We don't know exactly how long he'll be out, we're hoping he can suit up in Game 2, but we didn't want to risk him tonight with that swelling. He had an MRI, and the initial reading was a slight tear but after review it was swelling. We're being very cautious. We want to make sure he plays in this series. And also he's a national team player, so we don't want to mess with a national team player as well," he added. Import Justin Brownlee was his usual brilliant self to lead the Gin Kings, scoring 35 points on top of 14 rebounds and nine assists. Chan finished with 21 points for his best game for Ginebra so far while Greg Slaughter added another 20 points in a starting role. For ROS, Reggie Johnson carried the Elasto Painters with 30 points and 13 boards while James Yap scored 15 and had eight rebounds. Game 2 is set for Tuesday also at the Big Dome.   The Scores:  Ginebra (102): Brownlee 35, Chan 21, Slaughter 20, Devance 12, Tenorio 5, Thompson 4, Mercado 3, Aguilar 2, Caperal 0, Manuel 0, Ferrer 0, Mariano 0 Rain or Shine (89): Johnson 30, Yap 15, Daquioag 10, Tiu 7, Washington 6, Ponferada 6, Ahanmisi 6, Belga 4, Nambatac 3, Norwood 2, Almazan 0 Quarterscores: 31-27, 52-45, 76-60, 102-89   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Chan on ROS: 'yung Rain or Shine, I love that team'

Well, it finally happened. Jeff Chan's breakout game with Ginebra finally took place and it came against Rain or Shine of all teams. In Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals featuring the no. 1 Elasto Painters and the streaking Gin Kings, Chan had the hot hand, firing 21 points, 10 in the fourth quarter as Ginebra pulled away for the win. Chan shot 60 percent from the field and drilled three three-pointers, marking his best game in a Ginebra uniform so far. It's safe to say that the veteran sniper is getting more and more comfortable with his new team as his role gets better defined with each passing day. "Masasabi ko lang na medyo kumportable na ako, medyo nakukuha ko na pero not fully. The other day nag-usap naman kami ni coach Tim regarding sa role ko, so medyo nabigyan ng ilaw parang ganun," Chan said. "Parang ngayon alam ko na when and when not to shoot," he added. As for facing the Elasto Painters in the playoffs, the team where he won two titles and one Finals MVP, Chan says those are good memories. However, he's with the barangay now and its time to make new memories with his new team. "Basta ako masaya ako with my new team now. Masaya ako na I'm with Brgy. Ginebra," Chan said. "Masasabi ko lang, yung team na yun, yung Rain or Shine, I love that team. Maraming nangyari dun pero syempre kailangan mag move on. Kung saan ako present now, which is Ginebra, may goal kami dito," he added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
