PBA preview: Kings, Mixers to resume winning ways



Barangay Ginebra and San Mig Coffee are perennial contenders every conference and with locked and loaded line-ups, expect both squads to resume their winning ways in the 38th Philippine Basketball Association season.

After winning the Commissioner’s Cup crown in his first year steering the team, Mixers coach Tim Cone expects more from his wards this season, given that they are intact and their chemistry is growing further.

“The team knows that we had a great season last year. We won the second conference and we went to the finals again in the third. The aim coming in is for us to build on that in terms of chemistry for us to achieve more. I hope we can do that. We have the tools,’’ said Cone.

It’s hard to argue with him since the Mixers will have most of their core back, plus they added help upfront as well.

Besides Joe Devance and JC Intal returning from injuries, San Mig Coffee added rookies Aldrech Ramos and Jewel Ponferrada in the fray, as well as Wesley Gonzales.

Meanwhile, the question for the Gin Kings is that can they finally get over the hump this season?

It’s been four years since Ginebra last won a championship and it certainly is hopeful that the drought ends this season, especially with a much-improved lineup that consists of a right blend of veterans and young bloods.

Though the Kings made two semifinal appearances last season, they still failed to make it to the finals.

Reigning league Most Valuable Player Mark Caguioa hopes so as he is optimistic about his team’s chances this coming season.

“The feeling of excitement is with us this coming season. We have a good and deep team and we’re looking forward to hopefully win a championship. That’s what we all want,’’ said Caguioa.

In the biggest off-season movement, Ginebra got a gem as it acquired LA Tenorio, arguably the best point guard in the league, from Alaska to further boost its already stacked backcourt.

In addition, the Kings, who don’t need to wait long before making their debut as they face newbie Global Port in the opening on Sunday, also got two capable Filipino-American rookies in Chris Ellis and Keith Jensen for more stability upfront as well as Elmer Espiritu.

bakit dami nagsasabi chemistry ang problema ng ginebra? bkit un ibang team chemistry din di ba ang problema like petron and mixers... sa mixers dami bumalik sila intal, devance, tapos un 3 new players nila wesley, ramos at un isa pa rookie nila,, so chemistry din ang problema nila... eh tayo apat lang ang bagong dumating jensen,ellis, LA and elmer... tanggal na dyan si elmer kasi hindi naman gaano gagamitin,,,, since rookie pa lang sila ellis at jensen madali lang sa kanila makapag adjust sa system ng team and ganun din si LA hindi naman sya ballhog at more on leadership and playmaker sya kaya wala ako nakikita problema... tingin ko okey na ang chemistry ng team mga 90 percent siguro
