The long standing debate is not dead yet , who is the GOAT or the Greatest Of All Time in the sports of basketball. Well, I’ll tell you this… It depends on who is talking or whom you’re talking to about it! Everybody got their own opinion. Everyone has their own interpretation and anyone can become a sports analyst in a fans suit once the issue with respect to the GOAT is raise.

Now they’re taking it to the next level with considerable issues surrounding the government leadership. will you buy in the idea, or stay away and limit our opinion with what is factual or not? Philanthropic act is truly an amazing feat especially if the aim belongs to the future of deserving kids of your native land.

For me thats the greatest of all time an active athlete have done to his fellowmen. – Paquito

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.

Sports and Hobbies – My 18 TDL

The Pacific Ring of Fire is reminding us that it is there to form part of the future shape of earth to come at the expense of natural phenomena such as volcanic eruption, earthquake of great magnitude that triggered a tsunami and even vast landslides claiming lives and properties. As a man, we can never be superior when it come to such nature’s willful way of maybe readying the planet to a kind of weather patterns that it is destined to. Are we off to a new beginning or we are doomed for good? But before we go to that wild imagination lest us go back and regain our senses as we gotta continue life no matter what. So here we go! Sharing to you another part of my to do list which am sure you’ll loved to do also…

The blood of a true champion flows right into your veins, runs with the family and will always be a part of your DNA, but you don’t wanna call it quits or go away for good. Why not get yourself or your sight to a new hobby or sports discipline that you’d never tried before? Meeting new people of great status of that particular hobby like photography opened up a new avenue of excitement or something to look forward to. Don’t dwell yourself to a sports or hobby that you’ve been doing for decades. Let that sportsman’s heart shout and go after a new one or set of discipline that will measure your skills and wits to its peak… again or for the nth time.

Participate again to compete and enjoy, that’s the real importance of doing this list. To get better and strive for greatness all throughout the process.

FIBA WC 2023 – PHI-JAP-IND

“The Power of Three” and “Play It Louder Than Ever.”

The end of the year just painted the widest smile in every hoops fans in these three countries as  FIBA Central Board officially announced and formally endorsed it to the world. Excitement envelope our heart as we try to imagine things come 2023 ! that’s six full years and we collectively look at the line up of potential candidate to don the national colors from the ranks of junior to senior high varsity teams and the remaining strength of those young guns in the current team.

The announcement just fuel up the programs for basketball leagues, to find great talent, to train harder with a great length of time for preparation and gone is the reason of short training, jiving up, cohesion and whatever you may want to call it.

Were hoping that there’ll be no game of politics along the way but pure solid support for the team, the lack of long term program thinking must shelve and create a committee of professionals to attend to the rigors of preparation, programs, training’s, player selection, and others.

So who are your team for the coming 2023 FIBA World Cup ? Bear in mind that they should be able to withstand a long term commitment, sacrifices and dedication with one full goal and that is to win the coveted gold and eventually see our flag in the Olympics.

Name your team and lets start a very good conversation till the national team evolves into one of the most best formed team in the history of Philippines Basketball Team.

My first take is to have KAI SOTTO start training exclusively in the US under the trainer of Giannis Antetokounmpo ! – Paquito 

Paquito Quote for the Day 43

Taking up something without any intention to let anyone knew it, is a big NO, especially if you are someone being looked upon as a role model of a law abiding citizen not only of your mother country but as to the whole world as well being recognized and affiliated with one of the favorite sports of the world.  The question lies between why and why  alone. Was it the urge of nature ? Was it flowing unto their genes ? Was it because their dumb reasoning can never be really considered as acceptable that they forgot to  process the cons of their act.

Respect the norms and the norms will respect you . – Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 41

You can never change people’s thought in anyway you wanted and what they believe in when it comes to your own predicament. An analyst branded Kevin Durant as the P.O.A.T, or what he said was the Pettiest Of All Time, though another analyst or pod-caster defended the acts and the reason behind those petty things at least for the critique as to many why’s that KD had resorted to such Twitter blast directed toward the former organization where he grew up and molded to what he is right now.

Can anybody blame him for what he’d done? I myself can’t but to learn from those actions committed by one of the best player to come to the NBA.

Look, listen and learn … that’s the best part of it when a star is glowing beyond capacity. – Paquito

The average age of the current population are either into super-active or semi-active workout ranging from weekly, bi-weekly or daily routines with single aim in sight… to stay physically fit and healthy in whatever way they can to stay sharp and fierce as they want. While most of them are doing it or into it to shave excess fats and lower their cholesterol level others do it to maintain agility even past the age of 70’s.

After a thorough and heart pounding activities most of us turn to what we call the post-workout-meal to support the loss energy and inner strength of our muscles which differentiate everyone from each in terms of food types, intake and volume.

Re-hydration is another key factor if you are into training or workout s the amount of sweat you’ve produced defines the amount of energy loss or used during the deal. How do you re-hydrate, what kind of liquid you need? Does a low-calorie packed drinks can serve your needed liquid, perhaps some smoothies will seal enough your needs immediately after. See, it doesn’t define at all to drink this drink that low-cal bottles but it depends on your genetic framework. While some consume a 500 ml bottle of hydrated salt before start training or workout, some do it afterwards but with the same aim in view which is to stay or keep hydrated.

Will several fruits crushed into smoothies can served the post-workout need as a meal? How about couple of wheat breads with a glass of milk or apple juice? Others eat their pre-freeze avocado smoothies combined with aqua mineral to stay full but oil-free after workout. So what are the best combination for a post-workout-meal? Yogurt, boiled eggs waiting inside your fridge?

best-post-workout-foods

Here is my two-cent word for this, better consult the expert advice of a registered Nutritionist and Dietitian  to determine your proper choice of foods to take after every intense workout. The right amount and timing are some of the greatest factors every active individual should learn. Consult those who are strict with their food intake and be aware of signals or key points they’ll share as those might not be fittingly the same for your own needs due to genetics difference and body types. And this might be the best time to see your personal physician in order for you to determine your current health alert status prior to indulging to any active cross training suitable for your age.

How about you, what is your preferred post-workout-meal? Share it and let’ the world known the positive effects it have for the next generation to come.

Paquito Answer for the Day 34

Still gaga over the finest and competitive sports happening in the world, from Basketball NBA 2017 Finals to French Open the Roland-Garros Tennis Championship and the US Major Baseball League that  keeps the people busy spending summer hours witnessing the best of the best compete and learn a thing or two from it. These sports momentous events should not escape your attention as it is well promoted, talked-about and discussed all over the open cafe’s, restaurants and pubs and even right inside your very own living room or theater room as you wanted to call it.

This lead us to asked, if sports is about camaraderie why does everyone has to compete ? Why just don’t play and hand over the prestigious accolades to the one or team that are willingly subscribing to give it to the one who played it below par performances? To remind him to spent more hours practicing the sport ? Wouldn’t it be fair to do such gentleman act of sportsmanship to which the sports-competition is greatly tied.

Maybe the reasons are quite obvious, the one who spent most of their hours perfecting their crafts and skills always end up the winner as evident with the grace and poised they  showed during the competition.  As we enter the middle week of the midyear month, let’s ask ourselves how do we compete with the world ? Are we still competitive or we need to take back our feet to the grind and revisit the errors we made and the blunders we take and go out and a lot better, competitive, this time stronger than the last 6 months. You will not regret it, am sure.

Stay competitive and stay on the game and beat the odds of life. – Paquito

NBA FINALS 2017- Best Opinion from a Fan, What’s Your’s Buddy?

Here is one of the best opinion from a legit NBA fan from the Philippines who shares his observation in technical and historical way on how the story of the NBA 2017 Finals will about to unfold. Live Score while writing this article is 29-18 in favor of Cleveland Cavaliers after a trey from KD with 4:44 to go in the First Quarter.  Your Comments and suggestions please.

The Golden State Warriors will be the new NBA champs a few minutes from now, IF they’d be able to close out game 4 in the Cleveland Cavalier’s home-court. Yes, they have literally toyed with the Cavs for the past 3 games, even when the 2 best players of Cavs in Lebron & Kyrie,  gave the best they could in game 3  (I gave everything I had. LBJ) , Cavs almost win,… almost.

GSW should be able to close out the series today, IF the ghosts of the past won’t hunt them, what ghosts were talking here? KD with OKC last year up 3-1 against GSW, lost to Curry and the Warriors. GSW (73-9), up 3-1 vs Cavs, failed to close out, and…

I’m sure everyone still remembers what happened next. Lebron , Kyrie ,Love & the Cavs will be part of history IF GSW is bent on closing out the finals today (GSW 16-0) , its just that they’d be on the negative side of that story. But if , Cavs would be able to win this one at home after giving it all that they could, its win or go home for them, we might be in for another great comeback from LBJ, who’s visited the Philippines, where basketball is treated like the national sport, and where everyone knows that never say die spirit from the Big J, who knows?

LBJ might actually be a fan of the Big J too.

Warriors Sweep the Spurs heading to the NBA Finals for the Third Time!

The NBA fever is heating up as the bold predictions of basketball gurus and fans are slowly taking shape ! We can never be excited with the recent win of the Boston Celtics versus the defending NBA champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now that the Golden State Warriors have flexed its muscle via multiple sweep that started with the Portland Trailblazers where Damian Lillard predicted a bold 4-2 victory in favor to them then followed by four to nothing western semifinals game with the Utah Jazz that seen its future in Gordon Hayward who was the only Jazz player to put up good numbers versus the Warriors defenders. And finally in the recently concluded western conference finals games against the San Antonio Spurs, Kevin Durant who’ve missed several games into the playoffs have made his presence felt by helping the Warriors trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green sweep the best of Texas area where most of the observers have expressed their opinions that..

“it would have been a different series should the Spurs leading scorer have not encountered that ungrateful ankle injury off a three point shot”

with Zaza Pachulia who in turn also got injured in the succeeding game and unable to play till the clincher.

The question now is , will the Warriors challenge the defending champion if ever the Cleveland Cavaliers close the series in their next two games , at home and at the TD Garden for Game 5. It is a different Warriors roster as compared to last year, gone were Andre Bogut, Harrison Barnes and Speights who are somehow part of the wrecking crews of Coach Steve Kerr.

Aside from KD as the major addition to the team, center Javale McGee provides not only the height and muscle inside the paint but his agility is nowhere near for a challenge versus any of the Eastern finalist team. Tristan Thompson is a little slower and Al Horford lacks the power to slow down McGee.


It’ll be a battle of torching the rims with consistent treys and free throws. Man for man the Warriors has a little edge in 1-2 position against the Cavs, but at the 3-4 it’s the other way around. We are about to see a battle of tenacity and sacrifices from both teams as these two have a score to settle way back two seasons. Though am not writing off the Celtics to score an upset with their depleted lineup, the way Boston guys have responded to the challenge of getting drown in the hole is remarkable. The big question is if Le Bron James will continue his poor performance in Game 3 or he’ll come with guns blazing to finish off the Celtics in Game 5 ? That needs to be seen as we can never tell what adjustments are the Celtics and Coach Brad Stevens are cooking up in Cleveland in order to duplicate the path they’ve done with the Wizards.

Think about this, the supporting crews of the Cavaliers are mere audience to Kevin Love’s shooting clinic that they’ve forgot to manned the wing in its entirety that the Celtics were able to break lose and penetrate the paint with Kelly Olynyk scoring in silence off an outstanding performance versus the Wizards.

img_9801

Boston played smarter than the Cavs with the way Coach Brad Steven handled the game in short Ty Lue was out-coached, period. What is clear right now is this … the Golden State Warriors are on their third trip to the NBA Finals waiting as if to defend the lost title not to regain it with the way the series have transpired in the west.

We let the Spurs go as the Celtics are showing it’s not luck in winning games in the east with the Cavaliers defending its land while the Dub nation are watching. – Paquito
