At this time, this team Washington is a very much talented roster coached by Oliver “Oztech” Zapanta, with a for formidable scorers Robert “D Twister” Cunanan, Eric “Wingman” Aurelio and Calvin “Bae” at the Center makes this team a complete visceral contender this season 5 as they topped the standings. Take note this team has depth back up players Rojenval Perez, Rommel Manalo, Bernard Diaz, Alfon “Ageless” And Chris “Clutch” Vallejo who are ready for a strike.
What a revelation for newly revamped New York for Coach/Commish Dex whose taking his team in upper standings. With several new rookies, this Season New York made good draftees that didn’t disappoint Coach Dex!
Having Jeoffrey “Ping” Esteban, John “Savage” Mortera, and Jason “Pinarello” Edrosolo plus adding Benhur “Prodigy” Domingo makes the team more solidify at the mid and post lane.
New York is on point this season as Coach Dex equipped he’s supporting recon Paul Rabuy, Chris “Mr. Henessy” Andrade and Vince Agcaoili that made this team “Taylor Made” oops! Don’t forget Kit “Lightning” Aragon the scorching scorer for NY!
The power of Point Guard! Yes, this team had been playing well and sniping too. As this team emerged as an upsetter to any teams this season. Roy “On Point” Mabutas is taking this team to a new level of competitor.
Coach Dennis tanked this team with mid sizes but with speed and high IQ in basketball.
Having it’s integral Center Jeff “D Voize” Lum, Ricardo De Leon, Doc Jamil, Fred Mejia, and Benjie “TOB” Cordozo makes this team a running renegades. Plus adding support of Marius Avila who can KO 3s at any spot.
Coach Melo and he’s crew are doing well this midway season. Having the new recruits Neil, Noel Quintilla Bro’s, And Tower Duo Ray Papa and Joe Duenas makes this team a dangerous come playoff time.
This team has all the assets and scoring weapons with its heavy back up players Ritchie DelaCruz, Norman Retuta, Gurpreet Singh, Randy De Guzman that are already battle-tested and ready for a roll.
The “Comeback is Real” and “D Melo OG Touch” Florida by Coach Melo is once again unleashing its basketball sorcery.
This team had fought a lot of battles! Win or lose Texas had established a good team relationship from crunch to clutch time.
Coach Roevic formed monstrous chemistry and making Texas a variety destination for new rookies or trade draftees. Having it’s luxury scoring player William “Franchise” Presa and improving Crian “D Crain” Presa, and the Ramirez Bro’s (Julius and Jeco) makes this team a good destination.
Plus having Brian Agustin, Raymond Ramirez, and Dennis Gordo makes the team more efficient and balanced on offense and defense. Don’t sleep on this team as they will prey you down last seconds. Texas knows how to close games down a crucial and buzzer-beating situation.
The Reigning Champs last season made a set back as this team is at the bottom of the standings. Coach Brian Garcia will have to make more adjustments as the last regular games get closer leading to playoffs.
Scorers for California Jun “Got This” Mabanta, Jer Escondo, Juan Sanchez, and Rich Monesterial will need to reshape more offensively as they will need to reconnect as a team and maximize the talents they have.
Aris Abregana, Orlando Lavarias, and Louie Bautista are much needed to contribute heavily in scoring production.
We are getting close wrapping up the regular season games and we can’t wait to see the final matchups. All teams are still showing up they’re A+ games and trying to put a show whose better this season 5! From stats to all parts of scoring titles all players must rise and grind.
