    Default Philippines Introduction Thread

    Hey all,

    First of all, I wanted to give all the new members a belated welcome to IBN's Philippines Forum. This forum has obviously been really active as of late and we're happy to have your presence here.

    So I wanted to start an introduction thread for all of you that came here, just so as we all can get to know each other better -- so give a few facts about yourself; like where you are located, where you were born, do you play basketball, age, etc etc. The only two things I hope you can include is how you found interbasket and one thing you would like to see from Interbasket.net -- suggestions, improvements, a Philippines minipage etc..

    Again, I wanted to welcome all of you.

    Stuart

    well might as well make my introduction even though im kind of old in these threads and on this site. }}on a side note, thanks again stuart

    sorry for mispells using a messed up keyboard

    My name is Jay K.

    played ball in middle school as an undersized power forward. took a break for a long time from basketball

    got into my university and started playing intramural basketball leagues.

    obviously went to the pg spot, but somehow managed to guard the sf and sg spots defense is my specialty and offense isnt.

    24 yrs old and currently in china for more studying after i grad from my university. playing for the phil basdketball teram here in this university summer league in beijing. honestly though we are not doing good. because we are disorganized, sad to say but this is the truth. and to think we have a few ex players from the school of xavier studying here chinese, they are chinese fils.

    as discussed in old old old posts of a loong time ago as stuart can contest i love playing defense and like coaches who are defensive minded i.e. jeff vangundy. i dont like pgs who are shoot first mentality, i prefer them to be pass first and should always think of getting a higher assist whether its primary or secondary assist in relation to points, so j kiodd and john stockton to me fit this mold.

    i have 3 jerseys from the phil. one of james yeo, one of ritualo, and one of helterbrand.

    i someday would love to coach a youth basketball team someday.

    on a final note i live by the rules of no blood no foul type of mentality, which is very typical midwest southmidwest style basketball from the US. ive gotten my right ear partially torn apart and had to be stitched, ive taken bruises to my noses, face andf elbows, and have been submarined a few times. and ive done the same, except the whole ear thing big 12 and big east basketball to me are by far the most physically demanding, although these two conferences dont have the best talent historically it seems to belong to the acc.

    yao ming is a player i like very much although i dont like his too passive ways at times.

    on a final note, i live by the ethics of work hard, play hard, drink hard...as you can see from my photo...as skywalker said, show them filipino lifestyle, i think he meant the drinking part. haha.

    PS
    and i am handsome so ladies love me by nature

    i'm RetiredJordanStopper and i suck at NBA Live 2K7!!!! I've been posting since 2005 i think, so that makes me one of the older posters here. To all those active since 2005, maybe you'll remember that some of my posts here were erased because i called some posters sissies for dissing our NT...i've also challenged this chinese guy to get 4 chinese dudes to play me and 4 other slipper-wearing pinoys i got off the street for some serious full court action..that post was erased too....i'm also one of the few who foul mouthed fanboy Arthur Volbert in one of the threads here....i've tapered-off since, but it's good to see many avid kababayans posting here..hi to all!!!

    I am Erektus! Like many Filipino posters here, I'm an avid RP Team fan and basketball lover. Avid bordering on rabid, actually. ;-P

    I started posting on Asia-Basket's very hostile basketball forum (Irangels, whatever happened to Samurai?) in 2002 (at the height of the Asian Games) until I switched to the saner, more intelligent discussions here at Interbasket a couple of years ago. And so, to all the newcomers here, welcome and let's keep Interbasket clean and green!

    I am an overseas Filipino worker in Hong Kong and my work brings me to China frequently, so I make it a point to sample the local hoops and nightlife of every location I visit. Hoops and alchohol -- such a quintessential pinoy lifestyle, eh? hehe

    Thanks to RJS for naively giving me the monicker "HK Playground Legend" -- if you are talking about age, maybe! Haha. I win some, lose some. Despite HK's lowly standing in international basketball, many of you will be surprised that this tiny former crown colony has plenty of talented playground ballers (and plenty of playgrounds in a place already crammed with skyscrapers).

    But yes, I can still run with the best of 'em. Back in college, I used to be a slasher (intramurals not varsity haha) due to my speed and quickness (I was in the track & field team). My trademark move was the wrap-around, tap-board layup. This was many years (and pounds haha) ago.

    As I approached my mid-20s, my speed deteriorated and so I worked on my 3-point shot instead. And I've fallen in love with the 3 ever since. In practice, my shooting can even give Ritualo a run for his money! =P Call me arrogant, but YES, I'm an 80% 3-point shooter in practice and 60% in games (maybe 30% under pressure). But I doubt if Coach Chot Reyes will be interested in my services hahaha!

    And oh, I almost forgot. I recently accepted the role of moderator for the Philippine forum. But it's just a title. Pinoys here can always look up to "model" posters here who exemplify poise, intelligence and courtesy such as Ctongco, Irangels, etc. We need more of these gentlemen!

    P.S.
    Phantim3dX, I agree that you do appear to be quite a handsome fellow. But I can assure you, my friend, that I'm a bigger hit with the chicks. =)

    Friends,

    JonarSabilano here. Yes, that is my real name, somewhat. I use this handle for all forums I belong to, except for PEx. I wasn't into basketball as a kid, having preferred books to balls, but my elder brother taught me some basic Milo BEST moves in second grade and I was hooked. I played small forward for the Philippine Science HS Passarelle team (for which I was known for my role as a slasher and fastbreak finisher) and switched to point guard in college. Later on, I was a long jumper for Ateneo's track-and-field training team until knee injuries got me. I still play pick-up games with colleagues, though.

    I'm now working in an IT/consulting firm here in Eastwood City. I am also editing an online journal of contemporary Filipino poetry, which you can visit at http://balaraw.blogspot.com. I also play guitar for the acoustic band Petix Department, which has yet to play a single paying gig.

    I am looking forward to intelligent baller discourse in this forum.

    Nice meeting you all, guys.

    They're all fine. I don't like call-center girls that much, though. They tend to act a bit too stressed-out after work.

    Cool

    THE Mindanao Visayas Basketball Association is a community-based amateur commercial league in Southern Philippines. League operations formally began with the opening of the ML Kwarta Padala First Conference on February 25, 2006 at the MSU-IIT Gym in Iligan City. M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu City won the historic first MVBA championship. M. Lhuillier further asserted its dominance by winning the 2006 Second Conference.

    The league is now on its second season of bringing top quality basketball to its fans.

    Sickcurtain_16 here. Rogie is my name.

    ive been with this forum for a long time, but most of the time just reading the posts here.

    I've been playing basketball since elementary days. I've been in so many sports before (tennis, pingpong, volleyball, athletics, etc) but basketball is my first love.

    I can play PG upto C depending on my teammates. im just 5'10 so when i play small guys, im under the basket, but when im with the bigger guys, ill be on the outside. I still prefer to play from the outside and somteimes attacking the basket or dishing out to my teammates around.
