Tweets of the Day: Basketball Never Stops

It’s no secret that the Philippines is a basketball-loving country. And as strong winds and rain brought by typhoon Glenda battered Luzon on Wednesday, Filipinos proved why.

The Better Decision

It was a perfectly written essay—heartfelt and sentimental, touching on emotions that were trampled during 2010’s The Decision. But was it the better decision?

The dust has settled, the Melo-Gasol pipe dream goes pffft, and LBJ is headed home. But that doesn’t mean the jokes will end. And now that the rumor mill has stopped spinning, other basketball stars not named LeBron can go back to the next best thing to getting a max contract: Playing for MVP!

The first and only coach to win two Grand Slams in the PBA. This is the legacy that Tim Cone will leave behind if and when he retires—unless of course Manny Pacquiao turns out to be a coaching genius and breaks records (he won’t). In other basketball news, Jarrett Jack gave Cleveland Cavalier hopefuls a mini-heart attack with a cryptic tweet that only said “I got news,” which turned out to be totally not Lebron-related. If only Cav fans had enough Jarrett jerseys to burn. You have to admit, it was expert trolling though.

We are all witnesses… to this crazy LeBron free agency saga that may or may not end with more jerseys set aflame. As NBA pundits, haters, and so-called Heat fans continue to speculate and/or troll, LBJ proved again why he is the most talked about athlete in sports. And he didn’t even have to win a ring this time (in case you’re wondering, Tim Duncan did not opt out and will play his last season with the Spurs for $10 million).

With free agency in full swing, the biggest names in the NBA are making headlines—not for having big games—but for taking meetings. That’s how awesome the off-season has been. While we grind our teeth and clench our toes waiting for a decision on where Melo and LeBron will take their talents to, let’s marvel at how Chris Kaman is really Chris Rock trapped in a seven-foot German body.

If you missed the controversial Game 1 of the 2014 PBA Governor’s Cup Finals, here’s how the last possession went down: Down three points with less than three seconds left, Paul Lee took a cross-court inbound pass, faked, took one step back, took a page out of D-Wade’s fishing expedition book, sent Marc Pingris flying, and had a chance to send the game into overtime. But alas, no foul was called, pushing San Mig to just two wins away from a Grand Slam.

Yeng Guiao thought “Paul got fouled in the last play,” while Tim Cone wasn’t sure because he was “too far away” from the play. Was there a foul? Did Lee initiate contact? Did he travel? These are the questions that will haunt the rest of this series, no doubt. And to keep the debate going, was there a foul in Kobe’s tweet?

The 2014 NBA off-season made another huge step towards being more entertaining than the 2014 NBA playoffs. While the Miami Heat drama continues to unravel, Jason Kidd makes a power play in Brooklyn, which may end up in him being GM and head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense to us either. But at least it drew some hilarious tweets.

The Gilas boys will be facing one final test before flying off to Spain: a team of NBA All-Stars led by Blake Griffin, Damian Lillard, Paul Pierce, and DeMar DeRozan. Behind the event is SBP big boss Manny “The Real MVP” Pangilinan, who is kind enough to throw us basketball fanatics a bone to chew on during the NBA off-season. And, oh, we’re sure you know by now that LeBron opted out of his contract. There’s so much speculation and wit on Twitter after the news broke out, that we took it upon ourselves to compile the best ones into one long scroll so you don’t have to.

This year’s NBA draft and free agency is setting up to be one of the most unpredictable in recent years. So hang tight hoop fans, with the draft happening two days from now and The Decision 2.0 still a full week away, there’s really just one practical thing to do: gossip on Twitter. Also, in other news, Ray Parks as a member of the Purple and Gold?
