first_imgJapan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA “The biggest position in need is someone to match up with June Mar and Greg. It’s really a challenge, like you look at Ginebra in the Finals right now, look at their length,” he said.That’s why Compton is desperately wishing for a miracle that against all odds, the four teams ahead of Alaska will surprisingly shy away from tabbing Standhardinger in this draft which will let the Aces swoop the Fil-German forward in.“If he drops to five, I’m hoping. If people are gonna pass up on him and he drops to five, yes, we will be open to taking him,” the affable bench tactician said.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Danny Kingad: student by day, fighter by night QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort LATEST STORIES Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Alaska coach Alex Compton.

I heard there’s a pretty good one in the PBA who has won four straight MVPs,” said Compton, displaying his signature wit to the media once again. “Those guys don’t grow on trees.
