bakit naman kami mag iingat? ikaw ang mag ingat sa kanya dahil sa mga posts mo dito..
ex gf ka ba ni borboran? yan ba pinagpalit nya sayo?
It's been quiet here...Anyway, seems like there's a new trade rumor. (As per Patricia's blog)
Joe for Arwind?
I don't know yet what to think about this rumor
Wow, KUDOS to your coach. Ang galing mag commentator. Seems to be a career waiting for him after his retirement as the coach of your team.
Sana walang katotohanan 'tong rumor na ito, keep the core intact! And hire a much better & more well-rounded import.
If anything, to be honest, I was hoping for a trade at the guard position - like maybe trade Espiritu or Thiele (since Cone doesn't use them anyway) for a good PG or SG. I don't see why they'd want to tweak the PF-C position.
Well, anyway, we'll see in due time, I guess.
And I really don't think Joe's going anywhere, with a tweet like this: "Coach tim is the greatest coach out here. Alaska wldnt be same without."
Seriously, ff there's any truth to this, then I can't think of any other reason for it other than Joe wants out, because as for salary reasons, I would think the two players are getting almost similar paychecks, baka higher pa kay Arwind.
^Kaya nga wala naman problema sa PF-C basta bigyan lang ng kotning playing time si Bugia pwede na. And Arwind usually plays 3 (same with TDLC and MB). Sayang nga si Espiritu & Thiele, aminado na rin si Coach na wala siyang gaanong guts to trust rookies pero sinong guard naman pwedeng itrade for Espiritu or Thiele (or both)? Not thinking about the ALA-AIR21 series but even during his SLR days, bilib na ako sa laro at potential ni Urbiztondo though I don't think Espirtu=Urbistondo pwede pa Esp+Thi=Urbiztondo but I highly doubt if AIR21 will trade Josh. Sayang si Dulay, sa palagay mo bro wala ba talaga siyang ibubuga in Alaska?
I'm a Joe Devance supporter. But I think Arwind Santos would make the Aces better. Alam naman natin na ang grand scheme ni coach Tim ay yung Thoss-Eman frontcourt niya na magiging instant nightmare of any team. We've seen Eman's improvement with his inside game and Thoss' confidence with his perimeter shooting. With that said, I think that adding Arwind Santos along with these two behemoths would give us, potentially, one of the best frontcourt the league has ever seen. Ok sana si DeVance sa SF position, kaso I think he'd be too slow to play that position. Remember before how coach Tim was trying to get Intal? I think he can see Arwind as a good substitute to Intal. Just imagine how tough we are going to be at the defensive end with Thoss-Eman-Arwind.
With regards sa back-up PG/SG. Ok sana kung si Espiritu itrade ke Intal. Since BGK has way too many swing man na rin. And kulang sila sa big man. Another thing is that we can snatch a good PG or SG sa draft next year with Baroca, Casio or even Paul Lee.

I initially thought of the jdv-arwind talk as hogwash, but coming from pat hizon, who's the most reliable "rumor" source there is, then there could be some truth to it.
However, a 1 for 1 swap is ridiculous on alaska's part. remember that jdv has been the stats leader for 2 conference during the elim rounds. if not for alaska's early exits, jdv would be the mvp frontrunner. he's arguably the best player in the league today; atleast on offense.
Alaska has also rid themselves of sellouts; miller, duremdes, to name a few, why take on another notorious sellout?? makes little sense. if it was a jdv for jwash swap then that'll be fine and dandy for both squads.
But, when arwind's right, he's one of the best players in the pba. tho he hasn't been playing great of late; often settling for 3pt shots on offense. maybe t.cone wants it's defense to improve and arwind is the best/most versatile defender in the pba.
COACH TIM CONE: There is no truth to the JOE DEVANCE to ARWIND SANTOS rumor. I honestly don't know who's that coming from.
COACH TIM CONE: We haven't had any conversation with SAN MIGUEL. We're really not in the martket to trade JOE DEVANCE.
COACH TIM CONE: There are rumors that JOE DEVANCE allegedly is not happy with his contract and wants to leave ALASKA. Theres no truth to it.
SNOW TO COACH TIM: But did JDV talked to the mgmt about his "disgust"? TC: Not that I know of. No, no, no. Thats just rumor. No truth to it.
SNOW to COACH TIM CONE: So definitely, JDV will still don the ALASKA jersey next confy? TC: Yes, definitely!
SNOW to COACH TIM: Are you sure the ALASKA management is not the one working on the trade? TC: Im usually the one who makes the conversation

I thought so. ^
It's almost impossible to believe jdv would want to leave alaska. he's making max money, what more does he want. he's also great friends w/ the aces players notably sonny.
What's odd is where pat hizon got the rumor from? maybe smb just offered arwind for jdv, pat got wind of this and divulged it. just because one team made an offer does it mean that something would come out of it.
Get a backup PG: borboran for urbiztondo.
