PBA Roster: What it's Full of and What it Needs

June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter battling for space

Seek diversity.

The PBA has players who are undeniably skilled and exceptional. But the question is, how different are they from each other?

Numerous players that would probably never be forgotten are James Yap, Paul Lee, Jayson Castro, Terrence Romeo and the like. What do we see? These are all bunch of point guards. Yes, their skills and plays may be a little bit different but they have something in common -- they are all coming from the small line up, the guards.

There's been too much of a showdown against the finest of guards the league has. They lead shootouts, fastbreaks, make plays and other things typically done by a point guard or a shooting guard.

And that's what makes them fun at the same time thrilling to watch. Why? Because there is balance no matter what teams are battling. Each point guard can match the other.

What the league needs to focus on are the dominating big men. There are only a few giants in the league and as a result, they could easily dominate their area of play. June Mar Fajardo, Japeth Aguilar, Greg Slaughter are just way too titanic that they could easily destroy whoever they are against. Having them in the team makes them an inherent advantage and thus, makes their opponent the underdog.

This is what the league lacks -- extra big players. Not all teams possess such talents. The league is in a dire need of enormous players in order to decline Fajardo and Slaughter's domination. To bring back the other squad's name back on the shaded area's battlefield. To eliminate the common notion of Ginebra and SMB having the size advantage.

Thus, it would be more entertaining to watch when all of the teams have equal potentials. Why? It would be harder to predict who'll win because there are no automatic advantages. It all comes down to the game.

We are hoping that in the upcoming seasons, the Philippine Cup would not be about the existing towers of the league. A super rookie should enter, with a super size enough to shaken up SMB and Ginebra's Goliaths.

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.

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…
