The entry of the Bay Area Dragons was the biggest boon to the PBA in recent years. The Dragons were a new team, a strong contender for the crown, and a foreign entity at that.

At the end of our stay in Donatela, we all felt refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to take on the world once again. Truly, it has been a soothing, calming experience for us; truly a home away from home. And I’d like to thank Acting GM Edward Sarmiento and his staff for the warm hospitality and care. It has been a great relaxing trip to cap the year 2022.
Kyrie is not an evil man. Kyrie has so much goodness in his heart. You see that in the number of social causes he has supported, such as the KAI Family Foundation. But the more he raises issues that he cannot support eloquently, the more he loses his credibility.

I dream of a stronger, more resilient, and proud Filipino people. But even before we can bring that to fruition, we can make a test case of Bohol. We can make Bohol a sports giant.
