I just want to give a shout-out to my teammates at the recently concluded Oracle Taguig Basketball Tournament.
It was a tough road for us… but we managed to come through… winning our last four games, which included beating an opponent with a twice-to-beat advantage on us.
The great thing about this team is that we have players who have never really played organized ball. In fact, most have not lifted a basketball for years. Also, nobody complained about the playing time (well, some complained that they played too much) and everyone seemed to be always upbeat (well, except me. 🙂 ) despite some bad losses.
Here is our roster:
- Albert: Our lone inside offensive player and, more importantly, our last line of defense.
- Allan: The defensive specialist, he picks the opponents pockets just like the pickpockets in Quiapo.
- Ever: Our energizer bunny, both defensively and offensively… he just keeps going and going and going… and going. You get the point.
- Jeff: The three-point specialist from the wings… He is the consummate team player and will always have your back.
- Khel: Our corner spotter and another defensive specialist.
- Lester: Another energizer bunny who will chase down his defensive assignments at all cost.
- Oliver: Our unstoppable offensive weapon. Nuff’ said.
- Osiel: Our smooth operator, who creates havoc from both inside-out.
- Ryan: The boom box! 🙂 He wears down the opponents though his boisterous shouting
Also, I’d like to give a shout-out to Obet, Pola, Billy, Donna aka Mrs. Osiel, Melgar, Mrs. Khel, Windz, Anjo, Girlie, Paolo, Maan, Jet, Dale and Miggy.
P.S. I was going for the Bieber look… but totally failed!
Ryan’s top five talent themes are:
Relator, Arranger, Learner, Maximizer and Individualization.
