Bibby Going to Atlanta

It’s official: the Kings traded point guard Mike Bibby to the Hawks for Shelden Williams, Tyronn Lue, Anthony Johnson and Lorenzen Wright and a 2008 second-round draft pick.

Bibby should increase his production in Atlanta as a second offensive threat to JJ.

Marvin Williams will likely take a hit with Bibby’s arrival.

Beno Udrih becomes an instant pick-up if you’re desperate for a PG (even when Bibby was out, numbers aren’t consistent enough).

Shelden Williams will probably get more playing time in Sactown.

Say Goodbye to HD DVD

As early as today, Wal-mart will be phasing out the HD DVD format from their stores. By June, they will be selling Blu-ray exclusively.

Toshiba: “Major ouch!”

Wal-mart’s Senior VP for Home Entertainment: “We've listened to our customers, who are showing a clear preference toward Blu-ray products and movies with their purchases.''

Companies already in the Blu-ray camp: NetFlix, BestBuy, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Co. and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.

Companies “with” Toshiba’s HD DVD: Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. and Microsoft for the 360 (who also commented that they can and will start supporting Blu-ray if their customers want them to)

Human Camera

Amazing memory. I hope he uses his power for good and not evil.

What's Missing in New Orleans?

In case you didn't notice, Shaq's no longer in the lineup. The 14-year streak is over. Pat Riley was actually pushing to get him in there -- saying Stern could make use of special powers to include players in the game. Of course now that he is with the Suns, Riley couldn't care less. And apparently even the coaches shared this same sentiment as he was not even included in the ballot. Ouch.

Damn Taxis

This taxi wanted me to pay an extra 100 pesos if he were to accept me as a passenger. I said no of course, even though I was late for an interview. I want to keep my principles. And my 100 pesos.

Los Angeles is Spanish

But that's not the only reason why Gasol is a great fit for his new team. In case you missed it (the biggest trade of the season), Pau Gasol is now with the Lakers. He'll be manning the low post in the Phil Jackson triangle offense. Kobe said it himself: Pau has great basketball IQ. Aside from the usual PF/C skills, the Spaniard can pass -- and now he'll be dishing out dimes to arguably the best finisher in the game. Or to Lamar Odom. Or even to Bynum or Fisher or the rest of the Lakers. Any which way you look at it: Fantasy Gold.

Bring Back JackTV & Basketball TV!

I saw this petition link on my facebook account. Actually, I am a member of the Basketball TV group in facebook. There is an ongoing petition demanding SkyCable to bring back Basketball TV, Jack TV and Solar Sports in their channel lineup.

This petition is I guess applicable to those who have to bear the monopoly of SkyCable in their area. But still, please spread the word on this petition. Surely you want to have the dosage or even overload of NBA Games, WWE matches, Family Guy, The Simpsons that you have been accustomed to back in your boxes right?

And to those working in companies, if somebody from ABS-CBN sales approach you and pitches for their crap replacement channels (BALLS, MAXXX, Velvet - no pun intended Cy), don't listen to their bullshit. That would teach them a thing or two about what the CONSUMER REALLY WANTS!
