Free agent Devance says he is staying with Barangay Ginebra
Pros: Versatility and Flexibility
Cons: Fewer Minutes for New Guys. And fewer Opportunities
Approving or disapproving trades no longer in the hands of the commissioner.
What this could mean?
What should Joe Devance do now?
Times are changing for Ginebra

What will happen if PBA implements home and away game?
Every Ginebra game whether home or away will be Ginebra’s home at least most of the time.
Kiefer Ravena rocked the Elsa costume from the popular Disney movie Frozen during Rookie Initiation Night.
How could a rookie even before playing a single game in the league become a massive threat to teams racing for the title?
Was it just Standhardinger alone who established this threat?

John Wilson is back to where it all started for him in the PBA.
Tim Cone picks John Wilson to fill the final roster spot for Ginebra.

1. Gameplan Familiarity
2. SMB’s Shooter Neutralizer

The guys with the perfect balance will always be the powerforwards. In all aspects they come in midway of Centers and Guards. But what makes some of them standout?
We’ll find out as we run down the 5 best power forwards we have in the Filipino Basketball.
1. Ranidel De Ocampo
A.K.A RDO, he is one of the finest forwards any team would want to have. Ranidel’s got the size to match even with centers in rebounding and post up plays. What makes him special? With his size, he could impeccably deliver from beyond the arc. A dangerous weapon for guys with the size advantage. R.D.O can take all sorts of shots depending on his defender.
2. Marc Pingris
3. Calvin Abueva
4. Japeth Aguilar
5. Rafi Reavis

Ever since the trade between Paul Lee and James Yap happened, comparisons arise from time to time.
1. The Elasto Painters with James Yap
2. Hotshots with the Leethal Weapon
Who would be a better team?
Smaller but still with power
How about Gregzilla?
With a known disadvantage brought by the presence of two twin towers. The playmaker providing an extra boost for the team is a must. Here are 5 players that will surely go head-to-head this season.
1. Scottie Thompson
2. Terrence Romeo
3 and 4. James Yap and Paul Lee
5. Jayson Castro
Both are proven scorers in their collegiate careers. Who will prevail on their Christmas clash?
So who will win tomorrow?
Prediction: The GlobalPort Batang Pier will win

- Jeron Teng: 16 points, 0 assists, 2 rebounds, 4 for 9 shooting
