with excerpts from the peoples journal..by rey joble 07/20/2005..

" bal david,one of the best point guards ever to don the ginebra san miguel jersey,is leaving basketball with a heavy heart.
oh yes, the man called "the flash" is reportedly calling it quits after his unhealthy condition prevented him from to rejoin his mother team, prompting the illustrious member of batch 96 to hang up his jersey fo good
a reliable source told the peoples tonight that david has not been in good condition ever since he injured his knee
sidelined for over a year, the 5'9 pointguard has even failed to join team practices,which was the main reason why the former UST guard gave up his career
the same source added that david also learned that ginebra has no intentions of keeping his services afterall and the gin kings quarterback known for his several memorable game winning baskets decided to end up his career
"ang alam ko wala nang intensyon pa ang management to sign him up now that jayjay helterbrand is back in healthy condition" said the source " marami pang ibang player ang hindi na kukunin at pakakawalan ng management"
david has reportedly flown the country last weekend to go to the united states and work there
along with david, players who have left the team are the veteran estong ballesteros james wallkvist and aries dimaunahan whose contracts have expired last july 15
ballesteros has been practicing with coca-cola and dimauanahan has been targeted by fedex reportedly to shore up their backcourt"....

im not been a bal david nor a ginebra fan but with david leaving the team for good, the dismantling of the robert jaworski built 96-97 core team has been completed...:wondering:


  • kawawa naman career ni bal david he never really maximized his potential or became that numero uno pg like Johnny A once was or Olsen Racela is. i think he also had personal problems that he found it hard to fully concentrate on playing basketball

    "stockton to maloooooooooooooone!" tapos sa atin.. "bal to Marlouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" ay sus! :glee:


    hehe, cguro ganun nga....kasi sila ung mutt and jeff combination ng gineba before. :D bye, bal...see u in coaching seminars.
  • gins should retire his jersey
  • ^^ mauna pa sya kaysa kay jawo? think man!!
  • ^wala naman isip yan.....so malabo yan sinabi mong "think man"...

    ^ Dapat sya na lang mag "retire" dito sa PEx! Agree?*okay* :rotflmao:
  • ^agree!.....
  • The 2nd generation Gin Kings, the one Jawo built with Marlou, Noli, Vince, Pido, Bal, and EJ has long been gone. They didn't pull out the same stirring victories like the old team that had the Bicol Express, Dynamite, the Destroyer et al, but that team rocked!

    Bal's confidence took a dive when the team brought in Jay Jay Helterbrand. But not having his old running mates pretty much did him in.

    Sayang, he could have been one of the all time best.

    Good luck, Bal.
  • Bye Bal. Hehe. I won't miss you that much, for sure.
  • purefoods might want to gamble on david in case if the reason for him to bolt out of gsm is playing time. just in case they don't get a good point guard this off season. or even sta lucia where he can be reunited with his former coach. im pretty sure he'll do well there since wala talga pg ang sta lucia
  • ALvsALvs PExer
    er, dimaunahan being let go? sino na back-up pointguard ng ginebra?

    anyways back to the topic, i think latter part of bal's career nag dip talaga performance nya eh, got into a deep slump he couldn't get out of.

    I'll always remember his miraculous shots that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

    I'm sure Mike Mustre and Asi Taulava will remember him as well. :)
