TBT: Old PBA Clippings

It's been a week since Gilas Pilipinas left the FIBA World Cup with an unforgettable final game win against Senegal. Yet I'm still on a high. I can't stop watching videos and reading articles of teams and players past (90s at the latest, because I'm a 90s kid). There are reviews all around the web on who the best PBA players are, or who the all-time best Filipino basketball players are since we started competing internationally. The former will have at the top Ramon Fernandez, and will also always include Robert Jaworski and my favoritest gunslinger, ALLAN CAIDIC! The latter, that is if we consider the pioneers, will have Caloy Loyzaga and our very own Lauro "The Fox" Mumar, who was my late grandfather's cousin.

So as I said, I've been watching old PBA video clips uploaded on Youtube. The late 80s and the 90s are what I grew up on. It was the peak of Patrimonio and his contemporaries, which included Samboy Lim, Hector Calma, Ato Agustin, Yves Dignadice, and Caidic. Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm a San Miguel Beer fan. :)

This is supposed to be a Throwback Thursday post and it's already 50 minutes to Friday. So before I run out of time, I present these yellowed pages:
