This year's champ Saling Ketket is up for a new challenge as he picked last in the also recently concluded draft which happened the next day of the celebration. The former, however, seemed to not mind being the last one to pick.

New Awards, New Fun
While the competition becomes tougher, the league has decided to implement new set of awards and recognition aside from the Top 3 getting a cash prize. This year, the regular season number one seed will get his money back and an automatic entry for next year, given that he is not part of the top 3. The team has also decided to reward the most active mangers in terms of movements in free agency and trades, this is to promote more interactions and create rivalries.
Bugy's Bar and Bistro
The celebration last Saturday also marked the second time Bugsy's hosted Powcast.net Fantasy party, the first being 2 years ago. Bugsy's Bar and Bistro is in the heart of the busy business district of Bonifacio Global City. You can find them at Forbes Town Road near Burgos Circle, along side many other restaurants.
Bugsy's offers a wide variety of food including steaks and their newest Pinoy Lunch Favorite. We had a taste of the scrumptious big Chefs Garlic Chicken, the Pinoy Champ Sisig, Boneless Bangus, a big bowl of Nilagang Baka and who could resist the classic Kare-Kare? Even our kids and partners who came along and celebrated with us enjoyed the food and the awesome service that Bugsy's provided. Their crew were so accommodating and friendly, we might just return again anytime soon!
Fantasy Basketball in the Philippines
We couldn't tell when Fantasy Basketball started nor where it originated but we knew for a fact that it was inspired by fantasy baseball. It was originally played by keeping tack of stats manually on paper and was popularized in the 90's. Now in the year of computers and mobile, many people enjoy the game and act like general managers of their own NBA teams. Today, Fantasy is mostly played using mobile phones.
We are definitely not the early adapters in the Philippines, but we are one of the most organized and we have managers who have been playing since 2003. That's worth 14 years of experience and expertise. Powcast Fantasy is committed to promoting fantasy sports in the Philippines and for the past 6 years, we have heavily advertised our tournament and offer new managers a chance to join the league every season.
For NBA enthusiasts who are interested to learn more and those who want to join the league, please don't hesitate to send as an email at email@example.com. If we reach at least 12 managers, we might open up a second league.
