Hello my dear followers, readers and fellow bloggers! This one for you and your thoughts always matters… Give me a word and let’s talk with sincerity…. happy reading everyone and Congratulations to all Golden State Warriors fans for a back-to-back championship the NBA… The more words we utter the insincerity we become. How the world reacted shows the magnitude of severity an infraction had made its damage to the privacy of every 87 million social media accounts. We can consider ourselves a willing victim by creating our own profile account be it legit or dubious. So where do we move from here is a question nobody wanted to answer maybe for now…

it’s time for you to create your own personal site… away from the preying eyes of mischievous and fake news fabricators lurking on the other side of the world. A blog site where you have your own liberty to choose who can see you, control the privacy you ever wanted while you create and share authentic ideas of your own.

This is sincere and not a fake news! – Paquitosi

Le Bron James, The Greatest Of All Time once He Retire.. Agree?

The debate halls are once again very much alive with the current basketball generation of greats and iconic player to ever play the game. There was an article where a Basketball Hall of Fame awardee said “a debate is constantly raise as to who is a better player, pitting greats of different era and of different class.. for me, It is how a player reacts to the social pressures attached to the game and not the way he play and accomplished things out there… ” And if we are to gauge the way team owners, managers and players opinion with the same question disregarding the era, generation or time of existence, it seems most of us will agree that the kid from Akron, Ohio stand tall among the rest with the way teams are going after his services with one mission at hand which is to regain the popularity of their team.

For the first time the All Star Game were reformat to instill a little “competition” and excitement for the fans around the world, stimulated our thoughts who the real and top of his class is…. and that is Le Bron James.

And the excitement continues as a billboard boldly entices the King to join the “Trust Process” team in order for them to “Complete the Process”.

My question is this, there is no doubt that the super power forward Le Bron James is the fastest, talented, high game IQ and the most to create mismatch in the position to ever play the game. He can trust his agility if wants to and many have proven it by winning several championships. With the free agency looming from the horizon, whichever team Le Bron James choose to be with is bound to win a championship, agree? And not until another bigger, faster and brighter player arrives the door of any NBA team… Le Bron James will hold for a time the acronym the GOAT regardless of generation, era or time.

Hey basketball fans, do you like the what you’ve read… then send me your thoughts and opinion even if you are a fan or not of Le Bron James but a die hard fan of the game! See you..

Let me share to you one of the most strongest quote from one of the best in basketball.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Cheap-Prized Moves

Packing up your team with a load of stars is an act of fear in disguise of rebuilding. The trend in sports have become a culture of will to win the championship at the expense of bringing together superstars and wreck havoc to those whose values are still patterned for ages. To receive a salary way too low the market value is tantamount to acknowledging the mission not to compete fair and square but with overload of power and deceit.

But who’s to blame? The team owner or the players? They’re claiming to they wanted to be the marquee player, the floor director, the leader of the band or the alpha of the team but they chose to go with teams who’ve gone through the playoffs instead of signing with those bottom finishers.

Gone are the character of a total warrior, competitor or up to the challenge players who’ll stick it through pain and pride all year long. The game has become a circus instead of a competition. An event instead of a ball game.

It’s the same old story, beaten by a team assembled through faithful drafts and resorted to labeling it as a super team in order not to lose the “best team tag” from the other division. What else shall we hear next time?

People are tired of seeing orchestrated stories, fans wants to witness competition where skill and strategies are played on the court not in the paper. – Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 04

Always be serious with anything you’ve heard or listening to, but beware of in between words you choose. This is absolutely right my dear sredaer (read backwards). We tend to assume or presume things the way it is whereas we shouldn’t. The chance to be in the middle of things without any choice where to proceed to regain our credibility has been prevalent in our daily lives. Have we learned from it? Do we learn from it? Here we should!

To get rid of being quoted for something or issues you are facing, try to exercise the art of keeping your mouth shut until you see the red flag to speak your minds in a positive way, with the goal to help not to put or add salt into an injury. Generally speaking with a positive thought of helping out the person to regain his or her credibility nothing more nothing less.

Salty words creates excitement for gossipers but sometime incite bitterness if added more than needed. Stay away from these conversation or immersed yourself and fix things out with the right amount of salt.  – Paquito

Who’s your Pick for the Men’s Basketball Finals Game in Rio 2016 Olympics

As expected the USA Dream Team ended the preliminaries with a perfect record in a never perceived fashion with 3 close games against Australia, Serbia and France. While Australia if we are to consider the loss to US as a given factor also showed what it takes to have a crack to the Gold or a consolation Silver finish.

On the other end of the court, Argentina and Lietuva have been lording it over the other protagonist with Spain recovering just in time should never be taken out of the equation as favorites with the quarterfinals format of knock out system could change the intensity and type of plays these teams could put up against every opponent.

The warm up is over and as the basketball fans around the world said this is the real game we are waiting for with stricter defense, more hustles, raining treys and knee breaking crossovers and also were in for the fist-slamma-jamma alley oop dunks! And this equates to greatness and pride to take hold of who’s who in the hoop kingdom around the world.

So who’s your pick? (send me an email of your prediction by writing your comments below after this article) 

Are we going to see a repeat of US vs Australian Boomers? or US vs France’s Les Bleus? But of course the Argentinians will not just give it to Spain and Lithuania since Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola, Carlos Delfino, Andres Nocioni will not team up for the last time without their sights set on that glistening Gold finish. But dont count out the upset concious Croatian team who are on playing with consistencies both at the ends of the floor. One we are all sure of, it will be one of the greatest basketball finals game of the 2016 Rio Olympic games.

There is no such thing as unbeatable but you have to disintegrate the solid fortress that has been there covered by talent and patriotism as those who plays with glittering game will take home the trickle of Gold. -Paquito

Winning by 33 or 3 is a Still Win ! Rio 2016 Olympic Games

The 2016 Rio Olympic Games is on its twelfth day of the nineteen day schedule for all sports lined up and we are witnessing the history of sports in its highest forms where world records are smashed and replaced by the outstanding performances of super athletes. And the pre-opening scare of dreaded zika virus a thing of the past, spectators are embracing several selected games where local heroes Rafaela Silva, Gold medal for Women’s 57Kg Judo; Felipe Almeida Wu, Silver for 10m air Pistol Men’s Shooting and Rafael Silva, Mayra Aguiar Bronze medals for Judo Men 100kg & Women 78 kg respectively for a total of 4 medals for the 2016 Olympic host Brazil.

While some of the super athletes are living the dream to its realistic performances, fans and spectators of this samba country are seeing the opposite in one of the most popular sports in the Olympics since the entry of professional basketball players spearheaded by NBA millionaires player in the person of Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, De Andre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry, DeMar Derozan, Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes and Jimmy Butler whom are criticises for choosing stay in a cruise ship instead of the olympic athletes village that to some are missing the true olympic spirit. Pau Gasol of Spain Basketball team is heading to a wild ride to make it to the medal race the same with France who will be playing the USA tomorrow at 1:15am .  People expectations drew a lot of dynamics in terms of how they’ve viewed the past 4 games of the USA Dream Team where twice they’re threatened with games against Australia and Serbia. The USA basketball team more than 30+ points winning average advantage entering the 2016 Rio games are now flexing extra muscle to notch those important wins in the eliminations to ensure they’re on track to get that 15th Gold medal and maintain the tradition of basketball excellence and ranking around the globe.

The very big difference of the 2016 Rio Olympic basketball story as compared to 1992 Barcelona Olympics is the influx of European players mixing it up with the best of the NBA as seen in the two exciting games. Andrew Bogut, Matthew Dellavedova, Patty Mills of Australia and Bogdan Bogdanovic, Miroslav Raduljica, Nikola Jokic, Nemanja Nedovic of Serbia have been rubbing elbows with NBA’s best in the past seasons. China and Venezuela are the only teams with no current NBA  active players in the rosters but has previous engagement with several NBA teams respectively. This alone has dabbles the scientific approaches of team plays where European,Asian , Oceania and African players are more attuned.

And with the basketball nearing its vital quarterfinals and semifinals game, we have nothing to expect but a more thrilling and exciting match-ups of the powerhouse now battling equally for the Silver medal and an exclusive chance to play the bunch of NBA stars as winning by 33 or 3 is still a win for the USA Dream Team.

Either by a mile or an inch a win is still a win – Paquito

The 2016 version USA Dream Team

As I was watching the on-going USA Basketball showcase being held across the US there is one thing I’ve interestingly notice, that teams from the around the globe have evolved positively at least for their home team benefits in terms of height and heft. Still, in the US where the competition is getting notches higher every 4 years and in time for the Olympic Games. A lot of debate can be found in any part of the globe as to who is the most talented, strongest team ever assembled by the US and there are of course discussion of great importance seemed they’re missing. Patriotism in the heart of the twelve professional NBA players donning the flag jersey and dedication in their heart to fulfill the obligation of a good US citizen for his country.The biggest challenge the 2016 USA Dream team has to face is the the fatal threat of the dreaded ZIKA Virus.

I consider them as the toughest when it comes to their courage to not let the USA be a a laughing stock should they end up not in any podium finish for the basketball medal game. Powerhouse lurking around are set to send in their best to at least wound up a Silver finish.

With the high probability of acquiring or getting bites of an insect numbering more than the projected sports participants attendees, this is a serious case they’re facing with rather than the opponents at helm. The teams are now warming up prior to travel to Rio, Brazil though there were news circulating that the Australian Olympic team has deferred its move inside the Olympic village after the Australian officials condemned it as “not safe or ready” where problems include issue surrounding sanitation and utility failure after running a “stress test” whereby a simultaneous run of faucets failed and electrical short circuits were recorded this made them to stay in their hotel for the meantime.

It’s not the competition that is threatening great athletes of professional level but the environmental and health issues which is a small but a high impact one and merits the reasons behind of those who decided to forego this chance to compete in the Olympic. I salute the 2016 USA Basketball Team including its coaching staffs and whole organization for the decision to preserve the Olympic spirit through firm participation and commitment of its NBA professional basketball players.

 Your thoughts are highly valued. Thank you.
