    There is a paradigm shift on players mentality theses days. They seem try to project some kind of a control. May be it's a millennial thing. Hopefully, a positive development.

    there could be many things that lead to the issue between caloy and raymond that we dont know. but i do hope he gets his shit straight for his own good.

    he is a known pasaway during his letran days before he got his act together.
    he seemed under control when yeng was ROS' coach and became pasaway again when caloy handled the team.

    It seems a strict coach is the ideal coach for him and I don't think he would want to mess with black.

    Hope Paul Lee & Belga get envy by that.

    Speaks a lot of dedication and discipline in losing 25lbs in a month. As I what I have been saying before, Slaughter is one of those diligent guys who dedicate himself to conditioning during off season instead of going on vacation. Its just that injuries has hampered his career. I wont be surprise if he will have a Reavis or Taulava like longevity with his dedication...

    I could shed around 25 lbs. in a 4-month weight reduction program. But I'm no 7-footer & I'm not an athlete like Slaughter eh.

    I wonder what/ how much is that “offer he couldn’t refuse” that made Jared Dillinger sign with Ginebra all the while already on a maximum paying contract with Meralco.
    SMH at these moves PBA. Along with players released because they have not attended team practices and games; it is another tarnish to it’s “very reputable reputation” http://https://www.spin.ph/basketbal...-a795-20190531

    It didn't cost Ginebra much to get JD. They didn't lose a player or a pick, so if he doesn't pan out, they won't lose much.

    I don't really think this is a major issue. JD may have opted to leave Meralco for Ginebra for several reasons other than money. But, assuming he did, he'll be joining a team that potentially may give him more bonuses depending on the team's performance.

    There may have been a gentleman's agreement but legally, this is not binding. It was a risk that Meralco took when they put JD in the unrestricted FA because that gives teams the option of giving him an offer.

    The underlying problem really is players wanting to play for the bigger market teams where their chances of earning more are greater. But this is not uncommon in the NBA as well when superstars from smaller market teams would like to move to LA, Chicago, Boston or New York because of better opportunities. That's something I don't think any league commissioner would be able to prevent - neither would stringent and more transparent rules on the salary cap can.
