The poll votes don’t favor Jojo Lastimosa but you see the bold answer? That’s my answer. Yes, I like his honest opinions. Ok forget about the accent but with his style of honest talk, knowledge of the game and PBA history, he’s gaining some fans as a TV guy, yours truly included. And maybe if we’ll redo this poll after year, we may see a turnaround in opinions.
By the way, I wrote the most FB-recommended post of all time, and in the world, and it has Jolas notes, click here. Excerpts below…
You know Jolas was a great player because many hated him during his heydays. Being a Ginebra fan, I for one hated him – 1998 up to the last juice of that Alaska 90’s core. (Ok, some uber-dangerous fouls he committed against Samboy Lim added to the fire). But then again, I so love him now! Jolas was the key player of Alaska in the early 90s but it was in the mid-90s when the core peaked. That’s when he got close to winning the MVP award. In 1996, the year when Alaska scored a grand slam, there was a race among mates Johnny Abarrientos, Bong Hawkins and Jolas, plus Alvin and Marlou Aquino too. The award eventually went to the Flying A. But then again (“but then again” – Jolas’ fave line), his teammates and his fans (and I) look at him as a player worthy of the MVP trophy.

This is filler/test post, testing our new domain (www.hoo.ph). Still, these are actual votes and a legit poll.
With Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant & LeBron James, is this US Basketball team unbeatable in the 2012 Olympics?
- YES (81 votes)
- NO (19 votes)
81 voted yes, they are unbeatable. So far, they are. In 2 won games (they blasted France and as expected, trashed Tunisia), the average winning margin is 37 points. This differential will go down as the competition heats up and top teams advance. After another “practice game” versus Nigeria, level of play goes up their last two preliminary games, Lithuania and Argentina. But I can’t see them losing a game in these games. USA can survive off night by multiple players and we will see other stars and reserves picking up the slack. And besides, their mean defense doesn’t allow easy shots, 2nd chance attempts, etc. In other words, they are in complete control. Only super hot 3 point shooting by opposing team and super bad games from 4-5 USA players can result in a big upset. And, I can’t see that happening.
Can LeBron tie Michael Jordan and win 5 more rings?

6 championships is one heck of a feat and is tough to duplicate. Ask Kobe.
So I voted “NO” too and I’ll be writing a full-post about this question/post and will give my estimate LeBron career ring count.
Factoring Dwayne Wade’s decline, Kevin Durant ascent, LeBron built/body, etc., I have him winning at least ___ more. More on this soon.
How bout you, when it is all said and done, how many total rings will LeBron win?
Just asking… do you really want to see a Pacquiao – Marquez IV?

Hey friends, let’s just get this out of the way, this poll-post has been in the drafts for months. And it’s late October and still no NBA game (pre-season and actual regular season games) so let’s post NBA-something.
We asked, “Who is the best dunker of all time in the NBA?”
And the answer is MJ, first. Followed by the Vinsanity, then the Mamba.
I checked and re-checked out MJ in-game dunks contra Vince’s and Kobe’s and I kinda feel MJ’s 50% lead on VC and thrice the votes of Kobe is a lil over the top. But hey, people have spoken so we’ll take it. MJ is dunk-king.
Michael Jordan 157
Vince Carter 102
Kobe Bryant 33
Dominique Wilkins 33
Um, Blake Griffin 29
Julius Earvin 10
Joe Dumars 3
Dumars got 3 votes! Blame this dunk.
Sorry LeBron fans, we forgot to insert “Lebron” answer, our bad.
- LeBron James (31%)
- Dirk Nowitzki (18%)
- Blake Griffin (14%)
- Dwayne Wade (14%)
- Dwight Howard (13%)
- VINCE CARTER (4%)
- Steve Nash (4%)
- Carmelo Anthony (2%)

The NBA lockout is currently dragging and the resolution not quite in the horizon. In fact, NBA wiped out a portion of the regular season ‘coz they cant find middle ground. So surely, NBA players will continue to tour the US, and the world.
WITH THAT SAID (I love it, “with that said”), the question is, who’s the next NBA superstar you’d like to see play here in the Philippines?
I am not really the biggest fan of LeBron James but have to agree with the 31%. LeBron James playing in the Philippines is exciting, and intriguing.
Rounding out the rest of the top 5 are, Dirk, Blake, Wade and finally, Howard. That’s one mean starting 5! If we have alien visitors wanting to play hoops for the right to get all earth’s minerals, we have to go with this five.
LeBron James playing against Filipino basketball players is arousing. Who’s to guard the 6-8 250 pound freight train? Will the Philippine rims be able to withstand LeBron’s power dunks. Do the Filipino referees have the guts to call travel on Bron’ crab attack? Will he be able to out-do and out-sell the Kobe Bryant led Smart Ultimate All-Star Weekend?
And most important of all, will LeBron James play in the 4th quarter? No, I’m serious. Kobe, in the Smart Ultimate All-Stars, he sat out most of the fourth! It’s a valid question.
