    I am excited to see how B Meg will fare in the quarter finals. KG is once again as deadly as he was last year. I just hope he can play consistently. B Meg is showing us right now that basketball is a five-man game and teamwork counts a lot. San Miguel, Ginebra, Talk n’ Text and Alaska are strong team on paper but B Meg shows the true heart of a champion. With the way the team is playing right now, the championship they won last year was no fluke. It was a product of hardwork and dedication. They might not be able to defend their crown this conference but to me B Meg has already won the All Filipino crown given the circumstances the team is in. Congratulations. See you next round.

    Even our team didnt have their key players we won the game….. Im proud with our team….. Minsan kailangan munang may mawala na key player para malaman natin kung sino ang magiging unpredictable player of the game at para malito sila kung sino dapat bantayan ng husto….. now as we can see lahat nag focus sa game….. Si Mark Pingris kahit hnd sya gumawa ng puntos naging maganda ang depensa nya….. pro team effort talaga ang key sa pagkapanalo ng team….. Congrats to KG…. keep it up….. Idol PJ bawi kana lng sa next game…..

    What is happening with James Yap? Is he tired? I don’t think Derby Ace will go somewhere this conference with the way James Yap is playing.

    Agree to all of you. Lumalabas na ang potentials ng lahat ng players.Pag maging consistent si KG all throughout, may kalalagyan ang ibang teams. Suggestion ko lang sa lahat ng players ay pairalin ang no nonsense basketball kahit lumalamang sa laro. Killer instinct, walang awa na depensa, at gang rebounding lagi lalo na wala pa si Raffy and Kerby.Kung observant tayo sa bawat games, ang laki ng contribution nina Gaco, Rommel, Don and Jondan. Nag sa sacrifice sila ng fouls para ma neutralize ang mga big men ng kalabang team. Sa mga forwards and guards talaga tayo makaasa sa scoring. Kudos to coaching staff at hindi lang kay James naka focus ang plays. Although at the end of the day siya pa rin ang number 1 na inaasahan natin.Rico and Mark grabe talaga ang effort bawat games, more than 100%.Apat na ang guards natin na magpapahirap sa kalaban. Pag tumapang pa si Acuna pang lima na siya. Shooter siya kulang pa lang sa exposure. Kahit eliminated na ang Red Bull, sana serious pa rin ang maging laro ng team. Sen the message to the top teams na Derby Ace is capable of beating them. Tayo yata ang defending chmapion.
