PBA: Bolick took Stanley trade hard: “Umiyak pa nga ako”

Stanley Pringle’s blockbuster trade from Northport to Ginebra Tuesday got everyone shocked that’s for sure. However, it seems like Northport rookie Robert Bolick took the trade the hardest. Bolick, the Batang Pier’s no. 3 overall pick from last year’s Draft, has been very vocal about his relationship with Pringle. The rookie really relished the opportunity to be teammates with one of the best point guards in this region. After that relationship lasted for pretty much just one conference, Bolick really felt the gravity of the situation. It’s as if someone spoiled him the ending to a movie that he waited to watch for so long. “Actually pinatay ko cellphone ko di ko matanggap, umiyak pa nga ako,” Bolick said, going back to the time he found out about the trade. “It’s because gusto ko rin maging selfish, gusto ko pa siyang makasama nang matagal kasi Stanley’s one of the best players na nakasama kong makalaro in my position,” he added. While Bolick welcomes the opportunity to play with Sol Mercado, Kevin Ferrer, and Jervy Cruz, the rookie admits that he’ll miss seeing Pringle in Batang Pier practice. However, just because they’re no longer teammates doesn’t mean that Bolick can no longer stop learning from Stanley. “We trust the management, we trust our coaches and everything. Move on. But again, gusto ko pa rin pagdating sa practice nandoon siya,” Bolick said of Pringle. “Sabi niya, ‘Always remember na I’m always here, the phone is always open,’ gumaganun siya so may nararamdaman na ako [na emotions],” Bolick added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Marcio finally regains touch with seven 4th quarter triIples vs. Blackwater

Since dealing with back spasms during their 2019 PBA Philippine Cup title run, Marcio Lassiter has struggled putting the ball through the hoop. Fortunately, it looks like the best shooter in the league has regained his touch Friday, torching Blackwater in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup as San Miguel Beer got its first win of the mid-season joust. Lassiter shot 9 out of 16 from deep against the Elite, making an insane seven threee-point shots in the fourth quarter to put Blackwater away. Marcio finished with 29 points for easily his best game in quite a while. “Personally, I was just at the right place aat the right time. My teammates were finding me today. Once I get one or two going, I believe I could string off a few more,” Lassiter said. “It’s just the shooter’s mentality, just keep shooting that’s all, just stay aggressive,” he added. While getting his range back is nice, Lassiter says he’s more focused on just playing well overall as the Commissioner’s Cup moves along for San Miguel. At the end of the day, Marcio is more concerned about getting wins and not exactly getting buckets just for the sake of getting buckets. “I’ve been having some tough games as of late, but I really just try to be in the moment and just play the game, make the right plays because at the end of the day it’s about winning,” Lassiter said. “That’s what I really wanna do, just win. I wanna just to continue play well and just shoot good,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: The curious case of Alex Stepheson’s bum stomach part 2

Blackwater missed its “perfect” import Friday in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, going All-Filipino against San Miguel Beer. Alex Stepheson missed the Beermen game as he had to quickly fly back to the United States to have a developing stomach ailment checked out by his personal doctor. Without the hulking Stepheson, the Elite promptly took a beating at the hands of San Miguel, dropping to 5-2 following a loss. Fortunately, Stepheson’s absence should be a one-time occurence as he’s supposedly set to be back in Manila next week in time for Blackwater’s crucial game against Northport. “May health problems siya right now and he's being checked,” head coach Aris Dimaunahan said of Stepheson. “So hopefully, in the next coming days, he gets his health back and help the team again,” he added. Stepheson has some history dealing with stomach problems as it also bothered him during his first PBA stint with Meralco two years ago. [Related: The curious case of Alex Stepheson's bum stomach] A key piece in Blackwater’s current run in the Commissioner’s Cup, Dimaunahan is just hoping that his import can get his health and condition back up. “Hats off to the guy sa ganoon na condition niya he still played the way he did sa first six games namin, he’s still a monster,” Dimaunahan said. “Hopefully maging okay na siya and maka-balik siya rito to help our team,” he added. Stepheson remins Blackwater’s top priority as the team has not discussed possible back up plans just yet in case there’s a setback in Alex’s recovery. “As of now, wala pa kaming napagmi-meeting-an kasi all of a sudden yun eh. We still have to talk amongst ourselves kung anong magiging next plan namin,” Dimaunahan said. Stepheson is going for 22.1 points, 22 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks with the Elite this season.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
