2018 PBA Draft Baller Breakdown: Bong Quinto

Ever since he was a young boy who grew up playing 3-on-3 streetball in Barangay Pasong Tamo, Quezon City, Kierjohn “Bong” Quinto dreamed about making it to the PBA. Tomorrow, his lifelong dream will finally be realized. The only question is, which team will draft the NCAA’s best small forward? STRENGTHS At 6’1”, Quinto was a match up problem for any team that faced the Letran Knights. Because of his strength, there was nobody in the NCAA who could handle him in the post. Quinto would attack the defense any way he wanted. If the defender was smaller, he would usually back him down and shoot a fadeaway. If the defender was bigger, he would face-up and make a powerful move towards the basket. Either way, it was easy money for Quinto. In his fifth and final season with the Knights, Quinto ranked 8th in scoring averaging 15.1 points a contest. He also averaged 8.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists, solid all-around numbers that earned him a spot in the Mythical Five. Prior to participating in Season 94, Quinto helped the Batangas City Athletics win the inaugural MPBL Championship, proof that he is experienced enough and ready for the physicality of the big boys in the PBA. WEAKNESSES At 6’1”, Quinto might be too small to be a forward in the PBA. Right now, he is labelled as a “tweener”. So, assuming he would have to play shooting guard, there’s a lot of aspects in his game that he has to work on. The first and obvious thing would be his shooting. Quinto only took 22 three-point attempts the entire NCAA season and made seven of them. He also rarely took mid-range jumpers because he didn’t have to. His shooting is a huge question mark as of the moment. In order to be effective in the pros, Quinto will have to show everybody that he has a shot because his “bully ball” style of play will not work on every one at this level. Another thing he will have to improve on is his speed. Although Quinto has shown surprising athleticism at times especially when he would dunk the ball during fast break opportunities where he found himself uncontested, his speed does not blow you away. If he really does makes the transition to the two in the PBA, he might have to shed off some excess pounds to be able to keep up with explosive guards like Chris Newsome or Terrence Romeo.    .....»»

UK’s May hits narrowing road for help rescuing Brexit deal

BRUSSELS --- Prime Minister Theresa May said she found "a shared determination" among some European leaders Tuesday to persuade the British Parliament to accept a proposed Brexit deal, but her continental counterparts insisted any room for revisions was small. So many British lawmakers oppose the deal on the terms of Britain's breakup and future relationship with the European Union that May postponed a planned vote in the House of Commons instead of seeing it rejected. While EU officials ruled out renegotiating the divorce agreement, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker gave May a crumb to take back to lawmakers: "room enough" might exist for "clarifications and fu...Keep on reading: UK’s May hits narrowing road for help rescuing Brexit deal.....»»

UK disarray: May to face no-confidence vote by lawmakers

LONDON --- British politics was thrown into chaos and Brexit into doubt Wednesday as Conservative lawmakers triggered a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Theresa May that will see her removed as party and government leader if she loses. May vowed to fight the challenge "with everything I've got," after Graham Brady, who heads a committee overseeing Conservative leadership contests, said he had received letters from at least 48 lawmakers asking for a vote. As a result, he said, "the threshold of 15 percent of the parliamentary party seeking a vote of confidence in the leader of the Conservative Party has been exceeded." Brady said the vote would be held in Parliament betwe...Keep on reading: UK disarray: May to face no-confidence vote by lawmakers.....»»

Just another ordinary loss

Chito Victolero says all is well within the Magnolia camp, that he has "veteran enough" players who understand that 29-point losses can happen in a series. What's important is how they bounce back from that. "We had a good practice, the team is healthy and we're ready," Victolero told the Inquirer Tuesday after preparing his Hotshots for Game 4 of their PBA Governors' Cup title series against Alaska as they try to stay ahead of the best-of-seven series. "Things like that happen to any team," Victolero said of the 100-71 loss on Sunday that cut their lead to 2-1. "It also happened to us in the [Barangay] Ginebra [semifinal] series. We won the first two games and lost the third. ...Keep on reading: Just another ordinary loss.....»»
