Jeff Chan Ginebra-bound after getting traded for first round pick

The Barangay just got a bit more stacked.  Monday morning, the PBA announced that Phoenix had traded Gilas sharpshooter Jeff Chan to Ginebra for a 2018 first round draft pick.  🚨 TRADE!!!@phx_fuelmasters TRADES @jeffreichan to @barangayginebra for the Gin Kings’ 2018 1st round draft pick. #WeArePBA pic.twitter.com/7wKf7QI3Yi — PBA (@pbaconnect) June 18, 2018 The 34-year old Chan, a ten-year veteran of the league and a two-time PBA champion and one-time Finals MVP, is averaging nearly 12 points and to go with four boards and four assists in nine games in the on-going PBA Commissioner's Cup. In his last game with the Fuel Masters, Chan put up a solid 26 points to go with seven boards in a 108-106 defeat to league-leading Rain or Shine.  The six-foot-three former FEU Tamaraw joins a talent-loaded Gin Kings roster that features Gilas teammates LA Tenorio, Japeth Aguilar, Greg Slaughter, as well as Scottie Thompson and import Justin Brownlee just to name a few.  The trade comes at an interesting time in the conference, as tenth-seeded Phoenix, who are fighting for a spot in the post-season, decide to give up a ready contributor in Chan.  Ninth-seeded Ginebra on the other hand, sitting at 3-5, is coming off back-to-back wins and will be getting even more help as they too try to make a push for the playoffs. The Gin Kings defeated Magnolia in the most recent edition of the Manila Clasico, just last Sunday. .....»»

‘Fallen Kingdom’ caps 25 years of ‘Jurassic’ thrills

"God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs, God creates Man, Man kills God, Man brings back dinosaurs," Jeff Goldblum deadpanned in "Jurassic Park," released 25 years ago this week. It was a pithy summary of Steven Spielberg's landmark monster movie and the series it launched that left audiences gasping in wonder as they handed over a dino-sized $3.8 billion for tickets over four films. "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom", the fifth episode, comes to the US having already opened in 48 territories, shooting to the top spot in each, breaking several records and grossing $151 million.

Frustrated Chan after Phoenix blows big lead anew: ‘We never learn our lessons’

It was a tale of two halves for Phoenix' Jeff Chan on Saturday night. In the first half, Chan opened the game with 22 points but his fast start came to a screeching halt in the second when he scored just four against Rain or Shine. Chan cooled off in the third and fourth quarters and the Fuel Masters also fizzled out on its way to losing to the Elasto Painters, 108-106. "It's frustrating that we never learn our lessons, every time that our opponent comes back from a deficit instead of responding what happens is we rush our offense," said Chan in Filipino Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena. Phoenix led by as much as 19, 29-10 in the first quarter, but lost its rhythm in the fi...Keep on reading: Frustrated Chan after Phoenix blows big lead anew: ‘We never learn our lessons’.....»»

Flashback Friday: Phil Jackson wins 10th NBA title

By Jeff Case, NBA.com Phil Jackson's legacy as an NBA coach was secure long before the 2009 NBA Finals. But in leading the Los Angeles Lakers to their 15th NBA title, Jackson further cemented his place as one of the NBA's best ever. On June 14, 2009, the Lakers defeated the Magic in Game 5 to win 2009 NBA title. The championship was No. 10 for coach Phil Jackson, which pushed him past Red Auerbach for most NBA titles as a coach. After the win, Jackson said, “I’ll smoke a cigar tonight, in memory of Red.” It was Jackson’s fourth title with the Lakers. In 2010, he won his fifth title with the Lakers and 11th overall as a coach. Jackson’s first six NBA titles as a coach came with the Chicago Bulls from 1991-98. He also won two as a player with the Knicks in 1970 and '73. The views on this page do not necessarily reflect the views of the NBA, its clubs or Turner Broadcasting......»»

Boxing: Jeff Horn wants Terence Crawford rematch in Australia

After getting stopped in the ninth round by Terence Crawford in their WBO Welterweight World Championship bout, former titleholder Jeff Horn wants a rematch in his home country of Australia.  Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, former junior featherweight ruler Crawford made his welterweight debut and dominated Horn en route to a ninth round TKO to capture the WBO title. The win was Crawford's 33rd in as many fights and it made him a three division world champion.  For Horn, it was his first loss in 20 professional bouts.  After all the dust has settled, the Australian former champion wants another crack at 'Bud'. During the post-fight presser, Horn expressed his desire for a rematch, and given that he's a former champion, he believes he deserves one.  "I definitely think I can win a rematch if we have a rematch, and surely I should be allowed one, because I was the champion.” Horn said.  Horn's camp echoed the 30-year old Brisbane native's sentiments, saying that they would like to have a rematch Down Under.  "I would dearly, dearly love for Jeff Horn to fight Terence Crawford in Australia, and if we get that opportunity, I’m very confident we can turn the tables." said Glenn Rushton, Horn's trainer and manager, via BoxingScene.com's Keith Idec.  Horn's first nineteen bouts were held in Australia, where he amassed a 18-0-1 record, including a WBO title clinching win over Filipino eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and a title defense against Gary Corcoran. Speaking of Horn's breakout fight against Pacquiao, promoter Dean Lonergan believes that if a Pacquiao-Horn bout proved to be successful in terms of crowd turnout in Australia, the same could be said for a possible Crawford-Horn rematch.  “Put it this way, if we can put on a Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn fight, we can put on a Terence Crawford-Jeff Horn fight down in Australia." said Lonergan.  “With the amount of branding we’ve built around Terence Crawford and Jeff Horn, I think it would be very easy to put a rematch together." he added.  According to the New Zealand-based promoter, Crawford is interested in fighting in front of an Aussie crowd, as long as the money was enticing enough.  How would Jeff Horn fare in a rematch in Australia? .....»»
