Still some positives for Meralco even though third time wasn t the charm

Meralco has now been at the losing end in all three of its matchups in its PBA Governors' Cup Finals trilogy opposite Ginebra. The Bolts' hearts were broken by Justin Brownlee in 2016 before falling short once more a year later. Now, head coach Norman Black and his wards lost the last three games to surrender yet another title to the Gin Kings. Nonetheless, the fact that Meralco is even here is actually something to celebrate. "We came in 11th- and eighth-place before the third conference so the addition of Raymond [Almazan], the addition of Allein [Maliksi], and of course, the return of AD (Allen Durham) have us a more competitive team and gave us a chance to win a championship," Coach Norman said. Indeed, the Bolts finished 11th at 3-8 in the Philippine Cup and then ended ninth at 4-7 in the Commissioner's Cup. With Almazan and Maliksi, as well as rookie Bong Quinto, reinforcing a core comprised of Durham, Baser Amer, Cliff Hodge, and Chris Newsome, though, they seemed to have the best shot at the franchise's first title. Unfortunately for them, it wasn't meant to be - especially after Almazan's knee injury in Game 3. Nonetheless, Meralco still scored a trophy - its third in the last four seasons. As Coach Norman put it, "The positive side is we made it to the championship which means we started the league with 12 teams and there were only two left and we were one of them." He then continued, "While that's not something that's gonna make you happy, at the same time, it's better than coming in third or fourth or fifth or sixth." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Applying murder to international law

There is much bravado in the decision by US President Donald Trump to give a go-signal for the US armed forces to commit murder by targeting the killing of a top Iranian general Qassem Suleimani. On Jan. 3, US-operated drones killed him while he was on a diplomatic mission to Iraq at the invitation of Saudi Arabia. It was premeditated because the target had no idea he will be targeted nor means to defend himself. The US together with Israel considered the general a high-value target that assassinating him would help counter the assymetrical war waged in areas occupied by US forces......»»

Lakers Anthony Davis to travel after negative MRI from fall

By Greg Beacham, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anthony Davis plans to travel with the Los Angeles Lakers on their upcoming road trip after he bruised his buttocks in a nasty fall. The Lakers announced encouraging news about their six-time All-Star’s health Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), a day after he left their blowout win over New York with a scary injury. An MRI exam performed overnight on Davis showed no major concerns, and X-rays were negative. Davis was extremely sore, but his injuries appear to be only bruises. The NBA’s sixth-leading scorer is expected to be listed as questionable when the Lakers open a two-game road trip Friday (Saturday, PHL time) in Dallas. Davis was hurt when he fell hard on his back and tailbone after trying to block the shot of New York’s Julius Randle in the third quarter of the Lakers’ sixth straight win, 117-87 over the Knicks on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Davis pounded the court in pain and stayed down for about two minutes while his teammates gathered around him. He eventually rose with help and walked off the court slowly, but under his own power. After the game, the Lakers’ Danny Green called it an “ugly fall, man. It’s probably going to take some time, seeing how long it took for him to get up and walk out of here, the way he’s walking out of here.” The news might not be as bad as the Lakers feared, however. The team initially diagnosed the injury as a bruised sacrum — the lower part of the spine. But the Lakers altered their diagnosis to a soft-tissue bruise after the MRI, which likely means the injury is less serious. The Western Conference-leading Lakers (30-7) were off Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). They play the Mavericks on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) and at Oklahoma City on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) before returning to Los Angeles. Davis will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but he is widely expected to re-sign with the Lakers. He is averaging 27.7 points and 9.5 rebounds in his first season with Los Angeles after the team traded most of its young core to New Orleans for him. “He’s one of our pillars,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “He’s our present. He’s our future. He’s one of the best players in the world, so obviously he means a lot.”.....»»
