The Philippine Basketball Association is back in business. And we are now down to the last four survivors in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup. For those who have been too preoccupied with the pandemic, as well as the recent typhoons, here’s a bit of a respite. We are now witnessing 2 grueling series with each team throwing haymakers like crazy.

The Los Angeles Lakers finally nailed their 17th title, tying them with the oft-regarded gurus of basketball, the Boston Celtics, for the most number of titles in the NBA.

Whosoever imbibes this lesson well will have a great head-start for next year’s race for the crown.
Like 2 majestic prizefighters duking it out in the center of the bloodied ring, the Lakers and the Heat size each other up once more. The Heat is bruised and battered, having absorbed tremendous punishment from its oversized foe in 3 of the first 4 rounds of this 7-round classic. After losing the last-minute slugfest in Round 4, the Heat stood eyeball-to-eyeball with the Lakers once again in the dying seconds of Round 5. Would they bend a knee to the mighty Lakers?
