August 28, 2014

August 23, 2014

 Paolo Orbeta during the recent PBA Draft Combine. www.philstar.comWhen Paolo Orbeta applied for the 2014 Gatorade PBA Draft, he sighed and waited for the storm that was to come.

You see, he was once infamously nabbed in an entrapment operation by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation allegedly for point shaving. Orbeta, who was in his final year of college eligibility that year in 2007, vehemently denies that. He also said that at the time of the arrest, he was merely walking out of what he felt was a bad situation and had no pay-off money on him.

He remembers several agents drawing their guns on him. How he was handcuffed and tossed in jail along with murderers, pickpockets and other criminals for several hours. How he was only given P15 to make a phone call to his worried father some nine hours after he should have been home. ...

MANILA, Philippines - Eighty-seven aspirants from the original list of 95 applicants are left in the final draft pool to be presented to 12 PBA teams during the 2014 Gatorade PBA Rookie Draft set Sunday at the Robinson’s Place Manila.

Eight hopefuls were cut as they either withdrew or didn’t show up in the Gatorade Rookie Draft Combine Monday and Tuesday at the Gatorade Hoops Center in Mandaluyong, leaving a draft pool deep in backcourt talents but lacking in frontline operators.
