TERRIFIC 12: Loaded Liaoning is TNT’s first test in Macau

MACAU — If TNT is to break its title drought here for the East Asia Super League’s the Terrific 12 tournament, the KaTropa will have to earn it. The deck has been suddenly stacked for the KaTropa as their first opponent has added major pieces ahead of Group D play. China’s Liaoning Flying Leopards have acquired the services of Lance Stephenson and Salah Mejri to complement a loaded local team led by national team star Guo Ailun. Stephenson played with LeBron James for the Lakers last season and Mejri was last seen by Filipino fans in China, leading African champion Tunisia to a sound beatdown of Gilas Pilipinas in the 2019 FIBA World Cup. The KaTropa are on a collission course against the Flying Leopards Tuesday, with their 9:00 p.m. showdown serving as the main event of a loaded Day 1 slate in The Terrific 12 at the Tap Seac Multi-sport Pavilion. TNT is fresh from a Finals stint in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, the team’s first in two years. However, the KaTropa lost that series in six games and their title drought is now at four years and counting. In Macau, TNT can play for a title if it maintains its high-quality of play that ran amok in the PBA but the KaTropa no longer have Best Import Terrence Jones in the fold. They do have the next best thing in KJ McDaniels, who will also suit up for the team in the Governors’ Cup. TNT also has McKenzie Moore for added import firepower. The KaTropa also sill have their local Big 3 of Jayson Castro, Troy Rosario, and RR Pogoy to count on scoring.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

TERRIFIC 12: Alapag all set for tough Macau tilt after quick “tourist” day

Jimmy Alapag has become some sort of East Asia Super League legend by now. Last year in the Summer Super 8 tournament, Alapag, fresh from an ABL championship with San Miguel-Alab Pilipinas, led the coaching clinic in Macau, sharing his knowledge with over 50 basketball coaches in the region. Just recently, Coach Jimmy was back in Macau to help promote the 2019 Terrific 12 joust. His latest trip was focused on sightseeing, interacting with local fans and enjoying all the tourist attractions that Macao SAR has to offer. Alapag visited the Philippine Consulate, a locally owned Filipino restaurant, hosted Q&A sessions with fans and hosted East Asia Super League merchandise giveaways.   The former PBA MVP and 11-time All-Star kicked off the day by visiting some of the most iconic destinations including Rua do Cunha at the center of Taipa as well as the Ruins of St Paul’s Cathedral. “Macao’s tourism sector is consistently growing and this is a great location for events. People from so many different countries come to visit and enjoy the culture, food and people,” Alapag said. “To bring a big-time sports event like The Terrific 12 to Macao is huge for locals and tourists. There’s a ton of sports fans in the region and they can all converge in Macao to watch their favorite and the best basketball teams fight for The Terrific 12 crown,” coach Jimmy added. With tourist stuff done, Alapag now turns his attention to the actual Terrific 12 tournament where he finally gets the chance to compete in the East Asia Super League. Alapag serves as an assistant coach for the mighty San Miguel Beermen and the reigning five-time Philippine Cup champions are hoping to make a title pit stop in Macau before resuming a Grand Slam chase in the PBA. In the Terrific 12, the Beermen will have defending champion Ryukyu Golden Kings from Japan, and China’s Shenzen Aviators in group play. Aside from San Miguel, TNT KaTropa and the Blackwater Elite will also see action for the PBA. “The Terrific 12 is the best international club to club competition platform in the region and this is something that coaches and players have desired for a long time,” Alapag said. “Playing in this amazing tourist destination against new opponents offers an incredible opportunity for our club and our league to showcase what we can do to basketball fans across the world,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
