Renaldo Balkman ‘logically’ fit for SMB

Renaldo Balkman’s lifetime ban is lifted although there is no clear picture as of yet on where he will play. Unless the unthinkable happens, the safest presumption right now is to see him land on one of the San Miguel Corporation squads.

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: 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.
