Another BPC Award for the Kraken: Can Anyone Else Beat Fajardo?

The Kraken receives his 6th BPC award- 5th in the Philippine Cup alone

With another championship celebration inevitable for the 4-peat seeking San Miguel Beermen, one of its key players continues to break records and he appears to be unstoppable in doing so.

After winning his 4th consecutive MVP award last season despite coming off short of their Grand Slam aspirations, June Mar Fajardo grabbed his 6th Best Player of the Conference plum prior to the opening tip of Game 4 of the Philippine Cup finals which was won by the Beermen. 

Instead of receiving the award on his own, the Kraken called on his teammates to join him in receiving the award- an act of unselfishness and a sign of gratitude towards his teammates who made him the MVP he is right now. To just give you an idea dominant Fajardo is in winning the BPC, he collected 1,279 points. The next guy down is his own teammate, Arwind Santos who received 670 points. That's almost double, right?

Question: Can anyone beat Fajardo for the BPC in the Commissioner's Cup?

Last season, 2 of the three Best Player of the Conference awards were taken home by Fajardo and Chris Ross while Greg Slaughter took home the Governors' Cup BPC trophy. 

Most of the best players in the PBA right now are either injured or struggling to get anything going. Jayson Castro, for one, has been struggling all conference long but with a new backcourt mate in Terrence Romeo teaming up with him for the Commissioner's Cup, the Blur might actually have a chance at rejuvenating his game and hopefully, have a shot at the BPC award. 

Greg Slaughter is another guy and the only one who can actually go toe-to-toe against Fajardo both in the BPC race and, on the court. If GregZilla stays healthy in the mid-season conference, Slaughter can definitely pose a threat to the Kraken's reign as the reigning BPC. 

Another player who can have a shot at a BPC award is Kiefer Ravena of the NLEX Road Warriors. Sure, he's a rookie but a rookie who is doing things that rookies usually don't. Fortunately, he's the Phenom and he's coached by Yeng Guiao so if Kiefer Ravena can expand his game a little bit, he might in the running for his first BPC award. After all, he led NLEX to their first semifinal appearance in the Philippine Cup. 

Prediction: June Mar Fajardo versus Greg Slaughter for the BPC in the Commissioner's Cup


June Mar Fajardo deserves this conference's BPC award. After all, he's one of the many reasons why the Beermen are just a win away from another championship. Now, if he can continue to dominate the PBA, it'll not be a surprise if he goes on to win more BPC awards in the future.

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.
Kiefer Ravena has shown excitement on twitter and ther…
