Bad News: Kevin Alas Out for 8 Months Due to ACL Injury

Kevin Alas of NLEX


This is definitely a big blow to NLEX's Finals aspiration

If you have seen the facial expression of Kevin Alas in the photo above, then you've must have felt bad about it because whether you're a fan of the former Letran star or not, you gotta appreciate the fact that this conference has been one of his bests in his young PBA career, having been coached by Yeng Guiao and has the potential to own one of the best backcourts in the PBA alongside Kiefer Ravena.

Then, tragedy struck Kevin Alas and the NLEX Road Warriors. And it appears to be a bad, bad beat for the young guard.  

Prepare the Road Warriors for the bad news as they will now play tomorrow's Game 6 of their best-of-7 semifinal series against the Magnolia Hotshots without Kevin Alas as Alas will miss the entire 43rd season of the PBA after sustaining an ACL injury which he sustained a minute into Game 5 which was won by the Hotshots, 87-78. With the Road Warriors down 3-2 in the series, NLEX will now need to find someone who can fill in the void that will be left by Alas who averaged 9 points and 4 assists in 4 games of the semifinals. 


With Alas out for Game 6 and the rest of the season, who will Kiefer Ravena turn to as his reliable backcourt mate?

When Alas went out, it was Juami Tingson who took his place in Game 5. However, he was ineffective as he only scored 2 points, going 1 for 7 from the field in 18 minutes. Coach Yeng Guiao can take Kenneth Ighalo as a possible option for Game 6 but the truth is, all of the playmaking responsibilities will now go to Kiefer Ravena which means guys like Alex Mallari, Cyrus Baguio and Larry Fornacier must start hitting their outside shots unlike how NLEX played in Game 5 where they only made 6 of their 22 shots in the 4th quarter alone which enabled Magnolia to run away with the crucial victory.


Conclusion

While nobody wanted Kevin Alas to get hurt and miss the rest of the season, Alas' absence will be felt especially on the offensive end because this will mean that Kiefer Ravena will now need to maximize every possession. But then, NLEX isn't out of the picture, just yet. Yeng Guiao can figure this out, one way or another.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup. No one was even close to defending Lonzo at the point and he chose to softly lay it in which […] MoreThe post Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game? appeared first on Powcast Sports.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.








At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.
