PBA: Ginebra Kings picks up Prince Caperal from free agency

So far, the attention over at the Barangay Ginebra camp is the return of Greg Slaughter. “Gregzilla” returns to action Saturday (Feb. 3) against the dangerous NLEX Road Warriors but his playing time will be controlled.

PBA: Kia Picanto adopting familiar UP Fighting Maroon Spirit

Kia Picanto finally got on the win column, ironically also the first win for head coach Ricky Dandan as far as being a PBA coach is concerned.

PBA: How the Guiao-Ross incident could have been avoided

San Miguel Beer ran away with another win, this time at the expense of the NLEX Road Warriors. However, the showdown had anxious moments with several incidents that added a bit of color.

PBA: Gavina quits post as Kia head coach

Chris Gavina, a virtual unknown, when he first called the shots for Kia/ Mahindra, has stepped down as head coach for Kia Picanto. Tasked to take over will be veteran coach Ricky Dandan.

PBA: Nowhere to go but up for Guiao and NLEX

The NLEX Road Warriors have so far remained perfect, winning their first two assignments. They won over Kia Picanto handily (119-115) and then turned back GlobalPort Batang Pier. It is clear that the player that is standing out is rookie Kiefer Ravena.

PBA: Tail-enders could use some offensive sock from shunned stars

With the PBA all set to unfurl its 43rd season, teams have opted to go with younger talent. Plenty of veteran names were left out in the cold though some teams could still put them to good use.

PBA: Will Ginebra consider signing free agents?

The PBA is all set to open its 43rd season, and there are a lot of names struck out of the list. Among the notable names include Chris Ellis, Gary David, Denok Miranda and Mac Cardona.

PBA: Jeron Teng needs sweet sniping to survive with Aces

Jeron Teng, the bull-strong former DLSU Green Archer who once scored 104 points in a high school game, will need to develop an outside shot if he is to last long in the PBA.

PBA: Kiefer needs to be ‘Phenom-enal’ for NLEX to succeed

Kiefer Ravena, the second overall pick of the 2017 PBA Draft, will be the cager to watch when the PBA Philippine Cup opens its doors on Dec. 17. He will play for the NLEX Road Warriors, and most expect him to flourish with veteran coach Yeng Guiao guiding him.
