Minus the Big Belly, Blatche is still a Good Fit for the Philippines | Why he is important

Andray Blatche Worst Games  + Gilas Pilipinas Great Games = Still a Good Fit


Dray Blatche, Thank you for helping us win against Japan and Taiwan - Filipino Fans

The fact is we could have not won the two games without Andray Blatche. 

Yes, Andray Blatche is not his best versions in the last two games and frankly, we were disappointed to see big boy Andray Blatche not keeping up with the team and catching some heavy breathing during the game. He was out of shape and it is one of the main reasons why his performance sucks, but why is he still important to the team and why would we have not won without him?

Coach Chot Reyes still believes in  Andray Blache and so should we. 




Dray Blatche doing other things

Against Japan, He played 33 minutes, scored 13 points on 4/11(36%) shooting. He also attempted 6 three-pointers and made 2 of them. Not exactly a great offensive line but he contributed 12 big rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 blocks.


Against Taiwan, he was even worse, he only scored a measly 6 points on a (2/9) 22% FG percentage. He also attempted 5 three-pointers and made none but he again out muscled everyone else and grabbed a total of 14 rebounds, dished out 3 assists and had 5 blocked shots.


Blatche was not his best version in the last two games and just to further emphasize how bad it was for our naturalized player, we give you the most glaring stats you will hate to see from any players. Blatche got 6 turnovers each game, that's a total of 12 turnovers for both games.

The Good in the Bad, Dray is a fit when he is fit

With the holidays just around the corner, it may be difficult to lose that weight, especially with all of the upcoming parties ahead but we hope Andray Blatche would be in good basketball condition come February 2018, for a game against the tough Australia and a rematch against Japan.

Blatche, in one way, accomplished his mission and that's to help the Philippine team win games. He contributed in other aspects and made things happen on the defensive side for the Gilas Pilipinas who badly needed a guy of his stature. His blocks and rebounds are critical to the game and it was certainly a valuable contribution and a deciding factor in the game. Against bigger Australians, Andray Blatche needs to get fit and we hope he will come February.

How Much are the Actual Ginebra Championship Bonuses?

Barangay Ginebra celebrated a back to back Governors Cup Title and the principals were in the mood for giving

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got. The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
