Daniel Orton's tirade on Manny Pacquiao last week drew divided opinion from basketball fans.

The former Purefoods import called Pacman a "joke" for playing hoops in the professional ranks, earning the ire of the boxing icon's fans and the approval of basketball purists who believe that the PBA is better off without the champion fighter.

For veteran coach Yeng Guiao, however, Pacquiao is a positive addition to the country's premier basketball league.
