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?

Amid trade rumors, Kevin Love quietly arrived in Manila on Thursday for a three-day basketball event where he is expected to, as a well-known Filipina sports reporter put it, show off his “signature moves.” We’re not sure if this means K-Love will be doing the Stone Cold Stunner on Chris Tiu or the Tombstone on Marc Pingris, but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, here are some Pinoy hoops stars showing Love some, um, love.

As the final buzzer of Game 6 of the 2014 NBA Finals sounded, Kawhi Leonard again showed why he is the future of the Spurs while Mario Chalmers still suc…wait a minute.

If, like us, you woke up with a strong urge to stare blankly into space, congratulations, you are suffering from a bad case of NBA withdrawal.

Since there’s not much NBA news to salivate to, here’s looking back at other June 17 moments in NBA history that basketball fanatics were deprived of today (it’s a band-aid solution, we know, but it’s either this or highlights of Brazil and Mexico trying—and failing—to score a goal in 90 minutes).

I t’s 2007 all over again as the San Antonio Spurs played perfect basketball against a LeBron James-led team to win the NBA championship. Kawhi Leonard got a well-deserved Finals MVP trophy for scoring on and defending the league’s best player, while said best player gets flak for losing not one, not two, but three finals series in his career. But this probably won’t be the last time LeBron will play in a championship series, so to end the 2013-2014 season on a high note (wink, wink), Twitter trolling presents: Michael Beasley with special guest Mario Chalmers!

S o Game 4 happened and the defending champs Miami Heat are down 3-1. Pretty boring stuff, really. Aside from Perfect Basketball ™ from the Spurs, Mario Chalmers did Mario Chalmers things, Dwyane Wade did Mario Chalmers things, Kawhi Leonard did LeBron things on LeBron, and Toney Douglas got minutes.

For Game 5, we’re hoping for another blowout if only to see Michael Beasley suit up in garbage time. But with the way the basketball gods have been tripping, it won’t be shocking to see the Big 3–that’s LeBron, Wade, and Bosh in case you’ve forgotten–explode and steal one at the AT&T Center (we’re also still waiting for the Mario Chalmers Redemption Game or the Ray Allen 9 3s Game).

Three games into the NBA Finals and we know three things: 1. Kahwi Leonard is a silent beast with freakishly huge hands, 2. This series is shaping up to be one of the most unpredictable, and 3. Mario Chalmers sucks (unless of course he erupts for 30 in Game 4 to shut us up—totally possible).

If reports are accurate, five-time NBA champion Derek Fisher will soon trade his tight-fitting jersey for a three-piece suit as head coach of the New York Knicks. Two reasons why this is fascinating: it’s the Knicks and Fish has zero experience. But, hey, at least he’s not a boxer moonlighting as a congressman and gasp, PBA coach.

Ten years ago, “Manny Pacquiao coaching a team named Kia Kamao in the PBA” would’ve been a good punchline for a joke. Fast forward to today, Manny Pacquiao is indeed coaching a team named Kia Kamao in the PBA. We bid the People’s Champ good luck in his new endeavor—he’ll need it when he’s battling Tim Cone and Norman Black.

In other less surreal news, Gilas prospect Andray Blatche shows his passion for doing the laundry and Mario Chalmers, in lieu of buckets, delivers the most electrifying move in sports entertainment.
