/ No Comments
PBA – San Miguel Beermen center June Mar Fajardo made history on Fridays 2017 PBA Leo Awards night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum as he becomes the only player in the league to win four consecutive MVP’s in just four straight PBA season.


Fajardo who is just 27 years old and only in his fifth year in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) has already won 4 MVP’s which tied him with 2 other PBA hall of fame.

Throughout the PBA History there are only two players in the league that holds the most MVP award winners before the 2017 Leo Awards. PBA legends and Hall of Fame former San Miguel Beermen Ramon “El Presidente” Fernandez the first PBA player to win 4 MVP’s which he won in 1982, 1984, 1986 and 1988 and former Purefoods Hotdogs superstar Alvin “The Captain” Patrimonio the second player to do so in 1991, 1993, 1994 and 1997 with 4 MVP’s also.

Even though June Mar Fajardo is the 3rd PBA player to win 4 MVP’s, it was special compare to two other PBA Legends because Junmar only done it in just five PBA Season in four straight years (2014 – 2017) at a very young age and will have greater opportunity and chance to win his 5th MVP or so in the next couple of years and becomes the only player in the league with the most MVP awards in PBA History?

Will June Mar Fajardo go down in the PBA history books as the PBA most MVP award winner? Maybe if he will stay healthy and continue his dominance in the paint at 6’11” it’s not possible for him to win his 5th MVP next year or even 6th MVP in the next couple of years?

For almost a decade, there is only one man who dominated the NBA, he began his reign when he won his first NBA Regular Season MVP in 2009 and was quickly followed in 2010 missed the 2011 MVP after switching teams and regained the award in 2012 and 2013 when he was crowned a back to back NBA Champion. He went home to give his hometown their first ever NBA Championship in franchise history.

He is now a 4 time MVP, 3 time NBA Champion, 3 time NBA Finals MVP and on the verge of reaching his 8th straight NBA Finals appearance if he becomes healthy in the upcoming 2017 – 2018 NBA Season? He's none other than the face of the league the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

In Basketball LeBron James is unstoppable breaking every record in NBA statistic in point’s rebounds, assist. One of only two players who is in the list of top 25 NBA players in scoring and assist and has not done yet of achieving the all-time leader in scoring before his time ends and became the Greatest of All-time?.

The only problem of James career is his NBA Finals record where he won 3 NBA Titles and 5 loss where many critics believe that he will never be the GOAT against Michael Jordan who has a perfect 6 out of 6 NBA Finals Championships.

And the recent loss of James and the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors put him down of being the GOAT and possibly not the best player in the league in today’s basketball generation?

According to Dennis Scott he believes that the 2017 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant is now the best player in the NBA? Because of his dominance on both ends of the floor when it comes to defense and offense compare to LeBron James.

While the four remaining cast of the shows, Shaq, Charles, Kevin and Isiah all agreed that LeBron James is still the best player of the league, he is the most complete player, he makes his team better, he can score, pass, assist and also a good defender and James has also the less help when it comes to teammates contribution compared to Durant who has a great teammate like Stephen Curry a 2- time MVP, sharp shooter Klay Thompson and a defensive specialist Draymond Green who made his job a lot easier.

Overall LeBron James remains the best player of the NBA according to the majority decision of the Open Court cast while Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard are tied for the 2nd best player in the league?

Who do you think guys in the best player in the NBA today?

LeBron James Might Miss NBA Season Opener against Boston?

/ No Comments
NBA – Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James aggravated his recently injured left ankle that he suffered during the training camp and now after playing his very first preseason game against the young Chicago Bulls last Tuesday (US TIME) at Quickens Loan Arena in Cleveland, James is now experiencing a sore left ankle and was ruled out to play for the Cavaliers preseason finale against the Orlando Magic.


James debuted his first game against the Bulls since the injury happens, he leads the Cavs in scoring with a game high of 17 points, but obviously out of rhythm or shape after causing too many turnovers for the entire game and later caused their team's 4th straight loss of the preseason despite the presence of James on the court.

The reports of James of missing the final game of the preseason also included the possibility of missing the NBA Season Opening game on October 17, this would be the very first time that James will miss the season opener throughout his NBA Career.

The possibility of facing his former sidekick Kyrie Irving and his rival team Boston Celtics is now in questions about James current conditions? It would be a very exciting and interesting game if James could play facing his former sidekick in a clash that probably the preview of the Eastern Conference Finals matchup?

But in the long run the Cavs management will not put their franchise player LeBron James in a bad situation that could lead to serious injury? After all, it’s just a regular season and their target is comes playoff times where James is much needed and through the NBA Finals to face the Warriors for the 4th straight year?

So don’t get surprised if LeBron James will not play the Season opener against Boston and perhaps miss several games before playing again to fully heal his injury.
