If you happen to be watching the preseason games of the PBA, you must have chanced upon the game between Blackwater and Team Kia, the team of playing-coach Manny Pacquiao.
Well, I only watched the first half of the game actually and saw Pacman’s limited minutes. His stats says he compiled 1 point, 1 rebound and 1 turnover at the half. Though t’was still the first half, it’s definitely not the stat you’d wish for in your player.
And based on what we saw, the team still needs to improve a lot and, enough of the sweet talking though – Pacquiao clearly is not for “professional” basketball. He was basically lost and lacks the fundamentals to excel in the sport.
And so, I stopped watching.. obviously, he’s just for boxing.
Hopefully before that happens, the coaching staff could develop a good system where Pacquiao could just shoot or pass and not dribble the ball when on the court but that’s just for offense – how much more when he’s on defense where he could be exploited?
As far as coaching is concerned, ah, it’s not the regular games yet – besides, Pacquiao has got other undertakings to blame if he fails.
To Team Kia, just be more prepared when you meet better teams.
