    Unless you are a member of the Dumagat, the Iskaya, Yakan, T'Boli, or any other indigenous peoples

    Which is why I find it funny that a few people here say that playing basketball is part of restoring "brown pride", whatever it means. My skin color is brown, yes, but I have a bit of Chinese and Basque running in my veins. Does that make me less Pinoy? Does that mean that we should stop supporting Smart Gilas because the coach is a Serbian, we have players with surnames like Tiu, Ababou, and Slaughter, and we are actively seeking out a foreign player to naturalize?

    Wala lang. Just thinking out loud
    Believe!

    KG Canaleta' Amazing Dunk

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pkr96DYaDQ4


    CANALETA REGAINS SLAM DUNK TITLE


    Fri, 04/23/2010 - 23:58



    PUERTO PRINCESA CITY. – The old slam-dunk champ reclaimed his crown, beating top-class rivals and a pretender.

    B-Meg Derby Ace’s KG Canaleta was back on his old haunts, cheered on by peers and foes in winning the highly competitive 2010 PBA All-Star slam dunk competition at the Puerto Princesa Coliseum here.

    Grace prevailed over power as Canaleta beat out Sta. Lucia’s Kelly Williams to reclaim the crown he lost to Rain or Shine’s Gabe Norwood in Manila last year.

    Norwood took a shot at back-to-back championships but failed to make it past the elimination round, getting poor scores on his off-timing executions.

    Also out after the eliminations was former PBL slam dunk champion JC Intal.

    Derby Ace rookie Rico Maierhofer proved to be just a pretender but he was a welcome sight with his game antics.

    Missed was Jarred Dillinger who opted out to concentrate on the Obstacle Challenge and the Rookies-Sophomores Bitz Game. The Talk ‘N Text Fil-Am forward provided fun in the competition last year.

    “Meaningful ito, kasi talagang ang lakas ng competition,” said Canaleta, who the event thrice from 2005 to 2007.

    The 6-foot-4 forward out of University of the East soared past three North All-Star ball boys and elegantly finished it with a right-handed dunk to beat Williams in a slam-off.

    He did practically the same routine in two earlier rounds – the first over one man then the second over two men.

    “Grabe ang pressure na ibinigay sa akin ni Kelly. Hindi na ako makapag-isip ng gagawin so pinahaba ko na lang ang tinalunan ko. Good thing nagustuhan ng tao at ng mga judges,” said Canaleta, now a four-time slam dunk king in the event where no one else has won more than two.

    Will he go for a fifth championship next year? He said: “Mahirap mag-salita. Siguro three-point shootout naman.”

    Canaleta barely topped the preliminary round with 95 points to Williams’ 94.

    And when Canelata thought he had the championship in the bag with a perfect 50 in the first round of the finale, Williams came to force the slam-off with his own 50 drawn on an off-the-board thunderous two-handed reverse throw-down.

    The Sta. Lucia ace then executed another two-hander on a 360-degree turn for 45 points.

    On his turn, Canaleta ran from midcourt, soaring high to perform between-the-legs dunk that drew mild response from the crowd.

    That prompted Canaleta to opt for a re-dunk.

    He summoned three ball boys from the sideline and promptly got the crowd up on their feet.

    Doing a perfect execution, Canaleta got another perfect score for the championship cheered on by the highly appreciative crowd in the venue. (SB)

    I think KWill should have been the deserving slam dunk champion. KG's dunks where he scored 50 were exactly identical. The only difference is he jump on 1, 2 and 3 ball balls respectively on those three dunks. And he has done those dunks in previous contests where he won the competition. Don't get me wrong that dunk he kept on repeating is a good one. I just don't see any variety and creativity in KG's dunk unlike KWill. It is more difficult to come up with something new to offer in a slam dunk. If KG joins the slam dunk again and keeps repeating his one or two great dunks does he deserve to win again? His best dunks was the one he did last where he practically did it three times with just a little tweaks on the succeeding rounds and the free throw dunk. Either way it was a great show.=) I don't know but I think KWill showed more creativity and power in his dunks.

    it was just grace over power. and if you watched kwill's slam dunk contest 2 years ago in the PBA and the one he did for eugene tejada's charity game, you'd also see the same dunks.

    anyway, the people of palawan were the winners in the slam dunk contest.

    but come on, three identical dunks in one competition and besides KG has done those dunks in all most all slam dunk competition he is in specially in those three peat he has won previously.. its like dunking on the free throw line for three times, regardless of whether you have ball boys under the rim its basically the same. i guess this one is one of the things where either of the two deserves to the slam dunk king plum.

    true, KG has done those dunks since his rookie year at UE. in fact that dunk, his signature dunk, was done by nelson asaytono in 1990.

    true, K-Will has also done those dunks before.

    true, Gabe was not serious in competing last night.

    true, all dunks have been repeated.

    they just need to be creative, more creative at that. more gimmicks would have helped.

    gabe's lack of energy and "angas" did it for him.

    what dunks are left? even the athletic NBA guys have run out of dunks to do.

    KG Canaleta could easily give Team Pilipinas its first ever Olympic gold, in long jump and/or triple jump. lol

    let's make a petition that he should compete in the 2012 London Games. lol

    anyway, he will go into the history books as the first Filipino Olympic gold medalist PLUS he will be rewarded handsomely. his salary and compensation in the pba would be multiplied.

    hahaha

    How about JC Intal Doing a Samboy Lim look...

    that right way is European Basketball but USA just won FIBA Championship...
    does it mean that USA basketball is the right way to play basketball???

    I am more hyped up when I see a dunk of the dribble. I'm not that into KG's dunks.
