No more Purefoods in PBA

I have been a big fan of Purefoods since 1988, and this news is really sad for all the fans of the franchise. I have been holding this news since posting it would make it real but now it is time. Purefoods will say goodbye to the PBA, unless the new owners will buy another PBA franchise in the future (which is unlikely to happen), we will never see a Purefoods Team in the PBA.

With the new owners of Purefoods not interested in the PBA franchise, San Miguel keeps its third franchise but cannot use Purefoods anymore, they can retain the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados but there are reports that they will use the Petron brand in the next conference.

I am still thinking of changing the name of this site as this has been known as purefoodsbasketball.com since 2008, even though the core of the team is still intact with the name change it maybe hard to support a different team name knowing it is already permanent.

Goodbye Purefoods!

Clif Brown stays – for now!

2010 PBA Fiesta Conference
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Talk N Text Tropang Texters
Saturday, June 19, 2010, Tacloban City

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados has a 3-game win streak as they battle league leading Talk N Text who has won 13 straight wins including a blow-out game vs Derby Ace last May 19, 114-89. Derby Ace Import Clif Brown who is rumored to be replaced soon, will still be active for this game and will be evaluated on a per game basis. Derby Ace has a respectable 7-3 record with Brown, but he lacks offensive punch but has been consistent off the boards specially offensive rebounding.

If Derby Ace decides to change Import, chemistry will be an issue again since they have only 2 more games left in the elimination round (vs Barangay Ginebra and Barako Coffee) after the game vs Talk N Text.
