We have some interesting news to talk about. 

NEWS
Buwaya?: Newsome explains his side about his last shot

A lot of people criticized Chris after he decided to do heroball in the last five seconds of game 4 and failed to deliver. Here was explanation of Chris about what happened. “Its supposed to be a great accomplishment for myself, but it’s kind of a bad time to reflect about it (misfiring in the endgame). It’s something I’ll probably get back to once the series is done."

The first part of his statement tells me that he did what he did to raised up himself. Unfortunately, he failed. He was right that he don't need to reflect about it for now, he needs to focus on their remaining games and try to recompense his mistake. 

Grateful: Paul Lee's manager express his appreciation to the Rain or Shine franchise

Coach Lawrence Chongson said in an interview with Spin.ph how thankful they are with what Rain or Shine gave to Paul Lee. 
Malaki ang pasalamat ni Paul sa Rain or Shine kasama na diyan si coach Yeng. Without them, hindi marahil narating ni Paul itong stature na kung nasaan siya ngayon... Bilang manager at adviser ni Paul, ganun na rin ang pagtanaw ko ng utang na loob sa mga owners ng Rain or Shine at pati na kay coach Yeng."

If you remember, their were some buzzes in the past that Coach Lawrence was the reason why Paul have a hard time fixing a contract with Rain or Shine because he wanted under-the-table salaries. Nevertheless, the legacy of a player is more important in the long run and I thought Lee finishing his career with Rain or Shine  is a good path to take. 

Inappropriate: A proposal about attendance and attire for the Leo Awards is created

A lot of awardees, Calvin Abueva, Terrence Romeo and etc, did not show up for the 2016 Leo Awards and someone above was not happy that he created a proposal about attending the event and the proper attire. 

I love the proposal. This award ceremony deserves the elegance and seriousness that the big acting awarding ceremonies gets. We are talking about the most coveted sports awards in the country! Please, enact the proposal! 

RUMOR
Target: Coach Pumaren is looking for tall bigmen?
Factuality Meter - 80%


There is a good source that reveals that Coach Franz wants a tall frontliner, 6'7 and taller, and he is willing to give as much as possible to get one. One very realistic and strong candidate was Jay-R Reyes who they want in exchange for some of their role-playing bigs.

Jay-R will be a great rehabilitation project for coach Franz because he is still 32 years old and he is a legit 6'7. He is physical inside and has good post moves to score. I think this is a legit and I am hoping the deal will push through.
