    RP Patriots favored anew in ABL Season 2

    THE second season of the Asean Basketball League is set to start on Oct. 2 in Thailand, with the Philippine Patriots, the defending champions, tagged as the team to beat anew.

    Powered by imports Jason Dixon, Gabe Freeman, Elmer Espiritu, Ateneo’s Nonoy Baclao, Val Acuna and Rob Wainwright, the Patriots ran roughshod over Satria Muda Britama of Indonesia to complete a 3-0 sweep in the finals early this year to rule the maiden season of the ABL.

    Patriots co-owners Mikee Romero of Harbour Centre and business magnate Tony Boy Cojuangco promised a stronger Patriots team this time, aware that everybody will gang up on them.

    "I’m sure our rivals will be preparing hard in order to stop us," said Romero, who is gunning for his fourth international crown as a team owner. "But we will prepare hard since our legacy and pride is at stake."

    Romero’s Harbour Centre franchise in the Philippine Basketball League won seventh straight championships before taking a leave of absence.

    "It’s our keen desire to keep the championship and we will be doing everything to form a highly competitive team," said Cojuangco.

    Even league founder Dato Sri Tony Fernandes of Malaysia believes the Patriots are still the team to beat.

    "Now all teams are plotting against the Philippines; that’s the goal. It’s (Philippines) like the Manchester United in football,’’ said Fernandes during the press launch last Monday in Jakarta. "But good luck trying, it’s going to be tough.’’

    Erick Arejola, who stood in for Romero and Cojuangco during the launch along with Harbour Center COO for administration Edwin Jeremillo, said the Patriots will start preparing next month.

    The Thailand Cobras, previously known as Tigers, will be bannered mostly by their national team honing up for the Asian Games.

    "There are lots of interest and the aim of the league is to one day have 12 teams," said Fernandes.

    The first game of the season will feature the Cobras against the KL Dragons in Bangkok.

    ABL NEWS | Thursday, September 02, 2010

    AirAsia is Title Sponsor for ABL’s 2010 / 2011 Season

    Thursday, September 02, 2010, Kuala Lumpur – AirAsia announced today that the airline is the new title sponsor for the ASEAN Basketball League’s (ABL) 2010 / 2011 season. The eagerly anticipated second season of ABL is set to start on 2 October 2010 and playoffs to begin in February 2011.



    AirAsia’s partnership with the ABL will definitely add vigour to the sport by sharing its passionate, successful and innovative traits. As an instantly recognizable brand -- especially in the ASEAN region -- and with a vast following, The AirAsia ABL is set to be a potent combination and hopefully generate further interest from fans of the sport across the region and beyond.

    This is not the first time for AirAsia to be a part of the ABL. The airline was the official carrier for the ABL’s 2009 / 2010 season, flying participating teams and fans to competition venues around the ASEAN region.

    AirAsia Group CEO Dato’ Sri Dr. Tony Fernandes said, “We are very excited for the new season to arrive and proud to be back in the ABL with a bigger role by being the title sponsor for the 2010 / 2011 season. As an ASEAN airline, it is our obligation to help develop the standard and quality of sports in the region. The region has a lot of untapped young talents but limited opportunities are available for them to progress further in their respective fields.

    “When given the opportunity to be the title sponsor, we seized it immediately as we believe we can positively contribute to the development of the sport and provide the platform for ASEAN youths to shine. Together with our other initiatives in the region, the AirAsia ABL seemed the perfect fit. It is indeed our dream to see ASEAN as a powerhouse not only in sports but other important fields as well in the near future. We will continue to do our part to make this dream a reality,” Fernandes said.

    The ASEAN Basketball League announced the official launch of its second season in Jakarta on 23 August 2010, with the new campaign to tip off with six teams with a new participant, Thailand Cobras, replacing last season’s Thailand Tigers.

    The league format will kick off on 2 October this year with matches being played in Thailand, Singapore and Philippines. The playoff Finals are scheduled to begin in February. The format will be maintained from last season which will be in the form of triple home and away for the league stages with a best of 3 series for the play offs including the finals.

    CEO of ASEAN Basketball League Kuhan Foo said, “AirAsia’s has always shared the ABL’s drive to make a positive change in ASEAN sports development. This synergy in a shared dream to unite South East Asia through sports is a passion that both AirAsia and the ABL stand united on. There are currently some programs that we will be introducing in the near future that will bring this dream closer to the masses in the months to come.”

    The ABL continues to push the boundaries of developing the sport of basketball in the region with many precedents set in the previous season. Many of the best national players in South East Asia were given a minimum 4 and half months of very high level competition last season compared to many national leagues in South East Asia which run for one month on average.

    Besides the ASEAN Basketball League, AirAsia is also dynamically supporting other sports as well. The airline, together with Sepang International Circuit (SIC), is currently sponsoring an ASEAN rider to compete in this year’s MotoGP World Championship. Malaysian Muhammad Zulfahmi Khairuddin is racing under Team AirAsia – SIC colours in the 125cc class of the world championship, and doing well in his first season with 3 championship points under his belt.

    Additionally, the AirAsia Asean Driver Development initiative, launched earlier in the year has gone from strength to strength by providing a fantastic platform for the two drivers Nabil Jeffri (Malaysia) and Daim Hishamuddin (Singapore) to progress in their field of Motorsports.

    COULD Mike Pilgrim be making his way back to the Asean Basketball League (ABL)?

    The Ohio native wrote on his facebook yesterday: "Well it looks like God has given me my new home ... Sept 15 ya boy is on his way back to Asia ... Let's get it family."

    The 25-year-old American might very well be heading to Satria Muda BritAma since the Indonesian team's logo was among Pilgrim's profile pictures.

    But nothing has been made official yet.

    "Well, it's not official yet. I will be signing the contract next week ... but I am happy to be able to play in front of my Brunei fans once again and at the same time get to know the people in Jakarta," said Pilgrim, in an interview with The Brunei Times, yesterday.

    "We will have a great team. It's a great opportunity to build on what the team had accomplished last year and to take it one step higher. I'm very excited to be able to play at the BritAma Arena because they have great fan support there," added the ex-Brunei Barracudas player."But I will always miss my fans in Brunei and I hope to be able to see you guys soon," continued Pilgrim.

    The 6ft 9in American, who used to play for Brunei's first professional basketball team, averaged 16.5 points and eight rebounds per game in his 14-game stint with the Barracudas.He scored his career-high of 20 points against the Philippine Patriots on Dec 13 and then proudly described the win as a "mother of all victories".

    However, Pilgrim was axed by the Barracudas on Jan 21, the Brunei side citing disciplinary issues for his dismissal.

    Nadzaty Azma Azeez, the owner of the Barracudas, also revealed on Thursday that the local players of the team had already started training under their assistant coach for the 2010/2011 ABL season.

    But 'interesting' questions remain unanswered for the fans and supporters. Who will be the next head coach? (After Coach Bong Ramos of the Philippines said that he would not be back for a second year)

    Who will the imports be? Will it be a completely revamped line up?
    Reggie Larry has signed with Barcelona and will not return to don the blue jersey while Filipino import Leo Avenido will lace up for the Singapore Slingers in the sophomore season.

    Looks like the 2nd season will start soon with virtually the same teams from last year. Therefore, no new expansion teams this year. That sucks. Hoping to see a new team in Vietnam.
