    Cone doesn't see himself, or anyone, surpassing Dalupan's great achievement

    TIM Cone may be on course to catching - if not surpassing - Baby Dalupan for the most titles in PBA history, but as far as he's concerned there's one thing he and anyone else can't take away from 'The Maestro.'

    The tag of greatest coach of all time.


    “We (B-Meg) were one win away from tying coach Baby Dalupan’s 15 titles. But throughout history, Baby Dalupan is our greatest coach,” Cone said during Monday night’s press launch of the former B-Meg Derby Ace team's renaming to San Mig Coffee at the 1Esplanade in Pasay City.

    "Winning 15 titles in maybe a span of about 15 or 16 years makes him the greatest coach of all time. But it took me about 24 years to win those 14 championships," Cone added.

    Cone’s first 13 PBA championships all came with Alaska, his only team from 1989 till his departure last year. These included the pro league’s third grand slam, a feat also achieved by the legendary Crispa squad under Dalupan and by San Miguel Beer in 1989 under Norman Black.

    With an intact lineup that reached two Finals and won one championship in the Commissioner’s Cup last season as well as key additions like rookie Aldreche Ramos, Jewel Ponferada and the 6’8” Gian Chiu, Cone has high hopes the Mixers will be right in the championship mix again when the PBA unveils its 38th season this Sunday.

    Still, Cone said they are not even thinking of winning a grand slam at this point even though he has more talent this coming season compared to last year.

    But one thing he has set his sights on is an All-Filipino title.

    “I don’t think winning the grand slam is something we’re thinking about right now. But we’re really looking at winning the All-Filipino because is truly, truly, truly the crown jewel. It’s the conference where you don’t have imports to rely on, but you play with your local players. And when you win the All-Filipino, you’re considered the best team in the country,” said Cone.

    The San Mig Coffee franchise has won a total of five All-Filipino (or Philippine Cup) championships since the team joined the league in 1988.

    San Mig vows to brew right mix in pro league


    MANILA, Philippines - Many times over this PBA franchise has proven that a change of name doesn’t necessarily mean a change of fortune.

    “Yes, we’ve been through a lot of changes,” said San Miguel-Purefoods Company president Butch Alejo the other night at the packed 1 Esplanade near the Mall of Asia.

    “But our mission remains the same, and that is to keep up with our tradition of winning, excellence and fair play in the PBA,” he added.

    It was the unveiling of the franchise’s new name in the PBA which opens its 38th season with the Philippine Cup on Sept. 30 at the Araneta Coliseum.

    From the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados, winner of last year’s Commissioner’s Cup champions, the team will now be known as the San Mig Coffee Mixers.

    Since 1988, the team had worn the colors of Purefoods Hotdogs, Purefoods Tender Juicy, Coney Island, Purefoods Oodles, Purefoods Corned Beef, Purefoods Chunky and then BMeg.

    They’ve won a total of nine PBA titles in 23 finals appearances – five in the All-Filipino, three in the Governors’ Cup and another in the Commissioner’s Cup.

    The team has also gone through a handful coaching changes – from Ramon Fernandez, Baby Dalupan, Ely Capacio, Ding Panganiban, Chot Reyes, Eric Altamirano, Chito Narvasa, Derek Pumaren, Ryan Gregorio, George Gallent and since last year, Tim Cone.

    The Mixers are once again hoping that with a new name, a new brand and a relatively new coach, they can keep the winning tradition.

    “Many people are not aware that a change of the name is a big marketing move,” said Pardo.

    The members of the team, led by two-time MVP James Yap, Jun Simon, Jonas Villanueva and Marc Pingris, and team manager Alvin Patrimonio, were formally introduced to the media.

    They all went on stage together with team governor Rene Pardo and San Mig Coffee general manager Allan Castro, and under the bright lights flashed the thumbs-up sign.

    “It’s always a great honor to be on stage represent such great organization,” said Cone, who is just one title short of the record 15 held by Dalupan.

    “But whether it’s Purefoods or BMeg, we’re here to win for the brand, the organization and the fans. The best marketing we could do is of course to win,” said Cone.

    The American mentor who brought the “triangle offense” to the PBA said the coming Philippine Cup will serve as the gauge to their 2013 campaign.

    “The All-Filipino is truly, truly the crown jewel. It’s always the hardest to win. And the key to us here is winning our first game (on Oct. 5) against my former team, Alaska,” said Cone.

    “You win the others and people say you have the best import or your import played the best, and your locals are dismissed. But you win the All-Filipino and you’re the best in the country,” he added.

    “Yes, we’d like to make San Mig Coffee the No. 1 coffee brand in the Philippines,” Alejo said.

    MILK VS COFFEE

    Published on October 4, 2012
    James Yap and his teammates play their first official game under the San Mig Coffee banner Friday,
    hoping they will be able to wave it mightily as they did with the B-Meg flag.

    Yap and company start life as San Mig Coffee Mixers taking on the Alaska Aces at 7:30 p.m. at the
    Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Both have new mixes with San Mig Coffee featuring new recruits Aldrech Ramos, Jewel Ponferada,
    Wesley Gonzales and Chris Pacana while Alaska showcases Jayvee Casio, Raphael Reyes, Nic Belasco and
    Eddie Laure.

    With its revitalized roster power, Alaska topped a preseason tourney in Cebu, indicating possible
    progress they can make in the 2013 PBA Season.

    San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone is wary because of their poor results in tune-up matches.

    “Our preseason was a little bit more disjointed than we would have liked. We’re not exactly
    where we want to be preparation and health-wise. Still, our goal is to get out quickly and that
    makes the first game critical for us,” said Cone.

    “Alaska, on the other hand, has been very sharp in the preseason, so we expect a tough game,”
    Cone added.

    San Mig Coffee is among the teams considered to contend for the crown, coming from back-to-back
    Finals.

    With those accomplishments right in their first year with Cone, the Mixers can well sustain a good
    run with, for one, a better knowledge of the nuances of their coach’s game.

    Add the fact that their mix has been made more potent by prized draft picks Ramos and Ponferada, and
    the Mixers could really perform even better this season.

    The team was the second best performer in the league last season with a 38-24 (.613) mark,
    highlighted by its Commissioner’s Cup title conquest. The Mixers also made the Governors’ Cup
    finale, settling for second behind Rain or Shine.

    “Much as we want to keep our team intact, we also took note of the other teams improving their
    lineups through trades and the draft. So we have our own new recruits,” said Cone.

    Cone made special mention of Ramos whom he likened to Talk n Text’s Ranidel de Ocampo.

    “He’s a weapon,” said Cone of the season’s No. 5 draft pick whose skills were enhanced by
    his stint with the original Smart Gilas team then with Harbour Centre in the Asean Basketball
    League.

    Another source of inspiration for the team is the return of JC Intal from the injured list. Also
    coming back soon is Joe Devance.

    While San Mig Coffee looks to become the league’s fourth winningest team with a 10th title, Cone
    chases a personal goal of tying coach Baby Dalupan’s all-time best record of 15 championships.

    DE OCAMPO, YAP SHINE AS SAN MIG COFFEE CRUSHES ALASKA

    Published on October 5, 2012

    With its little tweaks here and there, San Mig Coffee got off to an impressive start in the 2012 PBA
    season.

    The Mixers played remarkably well against the Alaska Milk Aces, pulling off an emphatic 103-83
    victory in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday night.

    It was a breeze for coach Tim Cone and his chargers, tipped to have another exciting year to follow
    their 2011-12 campaign where they made the finals no less than twice.

    “I wish we’re playing tomorrow,” said Cone, amazed at how his team played their first game in
    the season.

    “We’re scared by our preseason that we came in very focused. Everybody played well, moved the
    ball well, defended well and got their shots. It didn’t come every game. But when you do that, you
    get that 20-point win,” Cone also said.

    The Mixers were wary since they dropped two preseason tune-ups versus the Aces.

    “They came out with great expectation, and we jumped on them, popped their balloon and got them
    discouraged a little bit,” said Cone.

    The Mixers gave the Aces terrible spanking, dominating throughout with a splendid 64.6-percent field
    shooting.

    Yancy de Ocampo went 9-of-11 from the field and led all scorers with 22 points that went with 13
    rebounds and six assists.

    “We got the ball to Yancy the way we did to our imports in the last two conferences. Yancy filled
    the import’s role and it was crucial,” said Cone of his starting center.

    James Yap contributed 20 markers while Mark Barroca and PJ Simon added 16 apiece for the Mixers who
    led throughout, enjoying a biggest spread of 24 at 101-77.

    Falling behind by 22 in the first half, the best the Aces could do was come within 13 in the third
    period.

    Dondon Hontiveros put in 10 of his 14 points to lead Alaska’s third-quarter charge.

    The Mixers, however, quelled the threat quickly.

    De Ocampo, Simon, Marc Pingris and Aldrech Ramos combined for a perfect 14-of-14 field shooting as
    the Mixers raced to a 57-42 halftime lead.

    San Mig Coffee had an impressive 67.6-percent clip overall in the first half as against Alaska’s
    woeful 28.6-percent marksmanship.

    The Mixers took control early, leading by nine, 34-25, at after the first period. (SB)

    The scores:

    SAN MIG COFFEE 103 - De Ocampo 22, Yap 20, Barroca 16, Simon 16, Ramos 6, Villanueva 6, Pingris 5,
    Gonzales 4, Reavis 4, Gaco 2, Devance 2, Ponferada 0, Pacana 0.

    ALASKA 83 - Hontiveros 14, Baguio 13, Baracael 12, Espinas 12, Dela Cruz 8, Cablay 7, Reyes 6, Thoss
    6, Casio 3, Eman 2, Belasco 0.

    Quarters: 34-25, 57-42, 75-56, 103-83

    Maybe he has matured and learned a lot since his forgettable TNT coaching stint.
    Not OT since Alas was a rookie draft pick by Purefoods then.

    SAN MIG COFFEE GRABS SHARE OF LEAD

    Published on October 14, 2012

    June Mar Fajardo finally got his breakout game, unraveling his finest performance against one of the
    toughest frontlines in the PBA.

    But San Mig Coffee banked on its more experienced players in hacking out a 90-84 triumph in the PBA
    Philippine Cup Sunday night at the packed Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    Guards PJ Simon and Jonas Villanueva conspired for the Coffee Mixers’ important baskets down the
    stretch, helping their team to notch their second straight victory and an early share of the lead in
    the tournament.

    But the Coffee Mixers had to weather a late rally led by Fajardo’s endgame burst.

    The top overall rookie pick selected by Petron in the recent draft had 10 of his 16 points. Those
    points include one spectacular play where Fajardo came out of nowhere to score a follow-up dunk
    against Yancy de Ocampo and Raffi Reavis.

    With Fajardo imposing his will in the fourth period right after getting a chest pound while being
    pumped up by Jay Washington, the Boosters fought back in the game after trailing by double-digit
    deficits most of the way.

    “Now everyone got a glimpse of what June Mar Fajardo can do. His energy brought his team back and
    he was able to hold his own against our big guys,” said San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone.

    “I share coach Yeng Guiao’s statement that it’s better to face Petron early in the tournament
    because they will be a scary team as the tournament progresses. They will be a tough team to
    beat,” he added.

    James Yap led the way for the Coffee Mixers with 18 points on top of six rebounds and four assists
    while Simon contributed 17, including a huge triple that padded San Mig Coffee’s lead to seven,
    87-80 with 1:31 remaining.

    The Boosters, whose win-loss record dropped to 1-2, threatened several times in the fourth period,
    but San Mig Coffee managed to hit the needed baskets to stay out of danger.

    The scores:

    SAN MIG COFFEE 90 – Yap 18, Simon 17, De Ocampo 14, Villanueva 10, Barroca 9, Pingris 7, Devance
    5, Reavis 5, Gonzales 3, Ramos 2.

    PETRON 84 – Santos 18, Fajardo 16, Mallari 13, Lutz 13, Yeo 10, Washington 9, Cabagnot 3, Pena 2,
    Duncil 0, Miranda 0, Ildefonso 0.

    Quarters: 24-21, 49-35, 70-57, 90-84
