    Sa tingin ko OK naman team Nila players and coaches kaya lang mother team kakalabanin nila sa knockout e parang mahirap isipin na binuhus ng management ng San Miguel ang lahat sa team ng SMB at take note dala nito ang name ng company kaya mahirap isipin matatalo sila ng sis company team. My own opinion lang

    I am a SOLID PUREFOODS fan since Alvin Patrimonio’s time. So saddened when Purefoods did not cope up with the departure of Tim Cone from the Team.
    But with Coach Chito at the helm, it seems the Purefoods Team Star Hotshots seems to be doing good the past two conferences. Unfortunately, they failed to advanced to the Finals on the two Conferences losing both to their sister teams Ginebra and San Miguel in the semifinals.
    What are the lessons learned from the past two conferences? First, thr Star Hotshots should get a legitimate center in the coming PBA Draft. Reavis is a good defender but is already old and lacks athleticism to compete with the Fajardos and Aguilar. Sangalang is not a legitimate center. Second, Star should plAy with consistency especially their shooters. There are nights that all are shooting the lights out at the Coliseum and most of the time during the Semifinals it seems that their shooting hands are missing.
    Star should lessen their errors and the coaching staff should be harf on their players on this matter. Next, the coaching staff should be able to make a good rotation of their players and remove the mentality of having a go to guy instead of making a good play. Paul Lee is good but it seems he is prone to make a lot of crucial turnovers and so with Barroca. A player who commits two consecutive errors or a crucial error should be replace immediately.
    I cannot ask for more from Star when it comes to depense.
