Fire Quinito and His Commissioner's Cup Query

Fire Quinito asked a series of true or false questions regarding the Commissioner's Cup that just commenced in Laoag, and whose next game will be later this week. This is my take on the questions:

  • Smart Gilas will win more than half their games in the tournament

  • Not really, but they'll definitely have a better record than Powerade or Air 21.

  • Rain or Shine’s Hassan Adams will win the best import award.

  • Somehow, my instinct tells me Gabe Freeman will be back in the PBA soon.

  • The Powerade Tigers will end the tournament in last place.

  • Hard to argue on this one.

  • Air 21’s Rabeh Al-Hussaini will lead all locals in scoring in the tournament.

  • Still think James Yap or MacMac finishes on top of local scoring charts. And with the news that he's moving on to another team, he's going to be sharing the load.

  • Willie Miller will start most of the games for Ginebra.

  • I think Coach Jong has set the rotation in place. Besides, I think Mark likes coming off the bench, as long as he gets crunch time minutes.

  • Either Hans Thiele or Paolo Bugia will become regular members of the Alaska rotation.

  • Maybe Thiele, probably not Bugia. Reynel was their garbage guy. Hans can easily replace him there.

  • Sol Mercado will struggle to fit in alongside Mac Cardona and Chris Ross in the Meralco backcourt.

  • I think he'll be fine. That's a good three-guard rotation.

  • Kerby Raymundo will regain his all-star form for the Derby Ace Llamados.

  • Nope. Not this year. Let the guy rest and recuperate.

  • Jay Washington will win his third straight best player of the conference award.

  • Provided he gets far in the playoffs. Then again, I expect someone from TNT to take the trophy.

  • Talk N Text will make it to the finals of the Commissioner’s Cup.

  • It could happen again. They have the local talent and a good import in Paul Harris.
