By Daryl LimAs a Bay Area kid in the early 90’s, it was easy to root for the home teams. The Giants had Barry Bonds, a superstar outfielder who would go on to hit *the most home runs in a single season*.

Whenever you’re in a pick-up game, there will always be regular-looking fellows, guys who look like they don’t belong on the court. They’re either wearing a t-shirt instead of a jersey or sporting a bagong-gising look. But actually, they are the guys you need to watch out for aside from the obvious stud on the opposing team. If you disregard them, which you’ll likely do mainly because of their appearance, your team will probably lose.

If watching the games live, catching the replays, highlights, and postgame shenanigans still can’t quite satisfy your basketball soul, here are 10 films, in no particular order, that BuhayBasket believes every basketball junkie should watch. Also, it seemed like a good excuse to discuss “Dobol Dribol” aka the best Filipino film ever made.
Forget the new albums of the Foo Fighters and U2, because in even bigger music news, Arwind Santos just finished recording his debut album. Let that sink in for a moment. You’re good?
No fanfare, no sponsors, and no hype. The Picnic Games was a basketball tournament held at the Fort Bonifacio Tenement Building in Taguig. But looking past the no-look passes and sick crossovers, the games were really about keeping the bayanihan spirit alive on and off the court.
Ginebra team captain Mark Caguioa has nothing but praise for Ginebra’s prized rookie Rodney Brondial.
