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.

It’s a lot of fans!

All the talk about the non-functioning air-conditioner at the AT&T Center in Game 1 still hasn’t cooled off, lame pun intended. Now, Danny Green admitted to the Associated Press that the Spurs locker room had cooling fans to counter the suffocating 80-degree heat (33 to 35-degree celsius), while the Heat didn’t have any. Was it done on purpose? Or did the Heat just didn’t bother to ask? Hey, the Spurs have home court advantage after all.

Too cool for LeBron

The All-NBA Teams are out and only Kevin Durant was unanimously voted to the First Team. LeBron James was off by a single ballot. Yep, former ESPN reporter and current blogger Chris Sheridan felt LBJ is not among the best two forwards in the league this season. What type of cheap chemical is he inhaling? Perhaps he even considered voting Vitor Faverani.

BOOM pa… oh, you know the rest

The most obvious storyline in the PBA Governor’s Cup is San Mig Coffee’s quest for the Grand Slam. Well, it looks like the Mixers have a new battle-cry courtesy of high-flying jitterbug Justin Melton. Will it propel them to their fourth straight title? Uhm, you be the judge.

On Tuesday, Twitter was abuzz on rumors that the Fred Uytengsu-owned Alaska franchise will be sold to the NLEX Road Warriors, a Manny Pangilinan-owned team. If the deal pushes through, MVP will have the same number of teams (3!) as tycoon rival Ramon Ang and San Miguel Corporation. Boom! Or as RDO explains to teammate Rob Reyes, “like explode.”

Calm before the storm

After hearing Tim Duncan’s comment slash subtle guarantee about winning the NBA title this year, LeBron James responded, although in a more diplomatic, non-combative way: “They don’t like us, they don’t. I can sense it from Timmy’s comments over the last couple of days. They wanted this, they wanted us and we’ll be ready for the challenge.” C’mon, ‘Bron, you can do better than that!

As the Spurs sent the Thunder fishing in Game 6, it may have also meant seeing the last of Derek Fisher in a basketball jersey. But don’t fret Fisher fans, you may soon see him in the sidelines, in Madison Square Garden, shaking his head at Ray Felton’s belly. Meanwhile, Metta World Peace again took to Twitter to show the world why sniffing glue is bad for you.

Ouch, that’s no way to speak to the real MVP, son.
