sayang hndi nya nadala sa PBA pagka all star nya.
maganda kasi ang training ground ni Danny I pagdating sa PBA & ang lalakas ng nakabangga na na bigman that cause him to gain experience.
unlike Adducul, he dominate in MBA kaya sa isip niya malakas na siya.
pero pagdating niya sa PBA daig pa niya si EJ Fiehl maglaro, ayun di na siya nakarecover..
pero para saken mas gusto kong na retain yung MBA then nawala na ang PBA. nakakawalang gana na manood ng PBA ngayon. wala ng thrill.
di ba sa iloilo volts una nag laro si Mente at si PJ simon ay sa davao eagles ?
ganda ng laban ng first championship ng Pampanga Dragons vs. Cebu Gems
at lahat din ng laban ng gems at slashers ..mukhang matindi ang rivalry ng both camps na ito .full pack lagi ang venue at laging mainitan
The MBA's idea of bringing the game to the fans doors was great. Too bad it has to end.
(approved) bakit kaya hindi nalang ibalik?The MBA's idea of bringing the game to the fans doors was great. Too bad it has to end.
MBA = Great, great concept .... poor execution on the part of the organizers & team franchises.
Vince Hizon signing a contract for P700,000++ a month .... that will bury your franchise really quick.
Sunny Margate FTW !!!
Sunny Margate = idol ko yan..hahaha
poor marketing and management skills of the MBA..
if they only know back then how to use the popularity of the players and the league back then..
i believe they come to the point wherein PBA is really threatened by them.

I'd say poor budget management, poor screening of franchises and loose player recruitment rules, did the MBA in.
** I recall ABS-CBN even subsidizing the salary of a few of the marquee players (e.g. Adducul), which is never a good idea for any professional league.
** Most of franchises they selected had shaky finances since the start (e.g. Mondragon of Pamapanga Dragons, Iloilo Megavoltz, etc).
** PARITY ...... Like the PBA today, the MBA then had elite teams and dead-beat teams.
The MBA had a very relaxed set of rules when recruting local & Fil-Am players.
The elite teams always got the best players, hence was always in contention .... poor teams, just cant win big.
The imbalance was extremely obvious ..... the PBA should learn lessons from the dead.
OT: Well at least, there was no pimp teams in the MBA then ... like Pimp Daddy Bert Lina has been doing for a long time in the PBA.
Pampanga Dragons!!!!!! Cabalen eh!
mas nauna ko to pinanood nung bata pa ko.
the one rule of the MBA that adopted the PBA (and possibly the FIBA) is the 8-seconds crossing the mid-line. (remember the MBA only have 23 seconds on the shot clock?)
remember the Free Three and Blitz Three
akala ko nga nun pag dunk, 3 points din
Batang bata pa ko nito. Naaalala ko nun Idol na idol ko si Mad Max ng Socsargen Marlins, kaso di ko na maalala ngayon kung pano siya maglaro noon.
