ABOUT | GLOBAL PORT BATANG PIER

V

Globalport Batang Pier is currently the youngest team in the PBA, making their debut in the 2012-2013 season. They are an exciting team to watch out for with the influx of rookies such as Terrence Romeo, RR Garcia, and Nico Salva.

    What happened to Mark Acosta and the other drafts...were they able to sign contracts with them?

  3. #103
    Only Deutchman, Mandani and Manuel signed. Acosta, I think, will go back to the D League and continue playing for Erase Plantcenta.

    We'll live and die with Miller-David
    from spin.ph

    GLOBAL Port team owner Mikee Romero has quashed speculations of more trades for the pro league's newest franchise with two weeks left before the 38th PBA season comes off the wraps.

    The dashing sportsman-businessman says he’s more than pleased with the roster the Batang Pier have right now, a team which he pointed out is capable of springing surprises right on its maiden season.

    And who knows, perhaps even win a championship.

    “This is the team already,” said Romero in Tuesday’s PSA Forum at Shakey’s Malate. “May mga gumagawa ng rumors, but we will live and die with this team. I told the players in practice that those faces beside you, 'yan na ang magiging teammates ninyo.”

    The team owner cleared the air as rumors continue to swirl around the franchise about another possible trade as the September 30 opening of the league draws near.

    As expected, Romero is pinning his hopes on the explosive combo of two-time MVP Willie Miller and Gary David to carry most of the scoring brunt for Global Port, which purchased the Coca-Cola Bottlers Philippines Inc. franchise lock, stock, and barrel.

    Where the two high-scoring guards go, so does the rookie franchise.

    “It depends on where these two will bring us,” said Romero. “Of course, Rabah (Al Hussaini) is our third option, but its Gary and Willie who will be our main weapons. I expect another MVP run for Gary David this season, and for Willie to give this rookie team his brand of leadership.”

    Aside from Miller, David, Rey Guevarra, and Al-Hussaini, other members of the team are Jondan Salvador, Romel Adducul, Will Antonio, Josh Vanlandingham, Rudy Linganay, Marvin Cruz, Mark Yee, Angel Raymundo, and rookies Vic Manuel, Jason Deutchmann, and Aj Mandani.

    Romero said the Miller-David combination reminded him of the La Salle-Ateneo tandem of Mac Cardona and LA Tenorio when he first formed the Harbour Centre team in the defunct Philippine Basketball League.

    Cardona and Tenorio gave the Batang Pier the first of what turned out to be a record seven straight PBL championships.

    Romero is not exactly guaranteeing an outright title in Global Port’s maiden season, but is keeping his fingers crossed that hopefully a “Cinderella team will finally come out of the PBA.”

    “We haven’t played our first game inside the court, but I tell you, these players will fight like lions, like tigers. Magugustuhan ng tao kung paano kami maglaro,” vowed Romero, who’s also the president of the Philippine National Shooting Association.

    Miller was with his new boss in the same forum along with teammates Al-Hussaini and Guevarra, coach Glen Capacio, assistant Ricky Dandan, team manager BJ Manalo and basketball operations manager Eric Arejola.

    More than the talent, it’s the hunger factor that will make the difference in the campaign of Global Port, Romero said.

    “Ang maganda sa amin `yung boss (Mikee) namin gutom. And siyempre, we have a championship-caliber coach na gutom din,” said Miller, acquired in a multi-team trade that saw the Batang Pier give up sophomore guard JV Casio.

    “Lahat kami dito sa team gutom,” Guevarra added.

    The Batang Pier will see action right in the opener of the Philippine Cup when they battle crowd darling Barangay Ginebra in the lone game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    “We’re definitely looking forward to that. Actually, hindi lang naman Ginebra ang pinag-hahandaan namin kundi lahat ng teams,” said Capacio.

    Mikee denies ‘dummy’ claim

    from spin.ph

    RUMOR: Global Port owner Mikee Romero was only used as a dummy by Ramon Ang in the acquisition of the Powerade franchise, making the PBA’s newest team a part of the San Miguel Corp. group.


    FACTS: The question was thrown Romero’s way in the middle of a wide-ranging interview. The businessman-sportsman leaned back on his chair, let out a laugh and quickly brushed off a rumor that had been festering in the pro league for some time now.

    “How I wish (totoo),” Romero told Spin.ph, the smile never leaving his face, “para may kasama ako sa pagbayad sa team.”

    Romero went on to address the issue squarely. He admitted that Ang, the San Miguel Corp. top honcho who has engineered the diversification of the giant food conglomerate’s business, is a major partner in one of Global Port’s many ventures in North Harbor in Manila.

    But Romero insisted that the partnership ends there, and certainly doesn’t extend to Global Port’s PBA team.

    That, of course, was contrary to the stories coming out of the rumor mill before and after Romero’s acquisition of the Powerade franchise for a reported P100 million from Coca-Cola Phils., a company that was once part of the San Miguel conglomerate until it was bought back by its mother firm.

    When San Miguel made Coca-Cola’s PBA team a part of the sale, the agreement contained a clause that gave SMC a right of first refusal in the event Coca-Cola decides to sell the PBA franchise.

    For so long, Coca-Cola’s franchise had faced accusations of being a ‘silent member’ of the SMC group. When two more deals saw former Powerade players traded to San Miguel teams after Global Port’s acquisition of the franchise, Romero’s reign was tainted with the same suspicion.

    Romero declined to go into details, at least on record, on the two deals that saw Powerade’s Sean Anthony land at San Mig Coffee (formerly B-Meg) and Jvee Casio end up at Alaska in a separate trade that brought LA Tenorio to Ginebra San Miguel.

    But considering the “weak” position he was in, Romero insisted he got top value in the two trades – former MVP Willie Miller in the Casio deal and, in exchange for Anthony, a first-round draft pick which Romero used to pick former D-League MVP Vic Manuel.

    “Ngayon kung meron pa silang makitang one-sided deal after this…” Romero said.

    Romero said he was aware of all the talk about him “fronting” for Ang in the acquisition of the Powerade franchise but opted to keep silent, confident that the suspicions and allegations will go away once his Batang Pier team starts playing in the pro league.

    “Maingay yan kasi hindi pa nagsisimula yung season e. Pero pag tinalo namin ‘yung Ginebra, pag tinalo namin yung San Mig, mabubura rin ‘yan,” Romero vowed.

    Ingat ingat. Baka gantihan ka ng husto ng Ginebra at San Mig nyan

    Highlights of the game!

    Miller taking 5 consecutive shots at one point in the 2nd quarter ayun 0 zero bokya ang scoring ni Gary D

    1 game pa lang naman pero parang may mas future and promise yung All Filipino Cup line-up ng Powerade Tigers.

    Big gamble pala yung kay Deutchman considering na 2 ACL injury na pala siya.

    Pero maganda ang timing niya sa depensa, mas agresibo pa kesa kay Rabeh, kung ganyan na lang talaga ang ilalaro ni Rabeh, trade na nila yan for future picks or isang marquee player!
