HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE BASKETBALL AND SNEAKERS? just want to share my story , you can share your own too.

I remember way back in my elementary days. I'm already a big big fan of ALASKA MILK, with the line up of Johnny A, Jolas, Hawkins, Chambers, Cariaso ,Juinio vs the SUNKIST team and they lost in the best of 7 series finals. I was crying the whole night and i dont understand why. I dont have any idea why iwas affected that much since i was just a kid. My big brother caught me crying and was teasing me because he think im "MABABAW". But who cares,that's my favorite team.

I also made a really big mistake just to be able to play basketball.
This was way back in highschool, we have the annual INTRAMURALS in our school. The basketball game is held every end of classes in the afternoon, i rememberthe first day of our Intramurals me and 2 of my teamates skipped class to get our uniform in BOTAK only to find out later that day that we cannot enter theschool and play the game that day because we skipped classes. Being so desperate to play the game, me and my friends sneaked in to the school and was able toplay basketball. We are able to play basketball for like 2 quarters and after that , we found out that one of the school's neighbor saw us climbing thewall and reported it to our school principal. The principal went to the basketball court and had 3 of us in her office. The result, we are suspended for oneweek and was not able to play the intramurals at all that year. Anyway, all of it just for basketball.

I love basketball so much that when I had my ACL tear repaired; I started playing like after 2 months, rehab was supposed to be 6. I just couldn't stayaway from the game that long.

Fondest memory for me was being slap in the face by the opponents coach after i made a basket which turns into a riot. And the other was my teammate was rushby a man carrying an ice pick during the game. Thats the risk when in play in inter-barangay leagues NO HOLDS BARRED

your one tough cookie gameover, Try Dr. Canlas for a hefty price. 150k for ACL operation and rehab. but he is the best in his field.

Yep. Back to 100%. I went to Dr. Mikey Bengzon from Medical City. I knew a number of people who wento to him and turned out pretty well. Plus, hewas a fellow Atenean so that helped.
He also heads the FEU-MedicalCity Sports Medicine Clinic.

One tough cookie? Nah, I think I'm just stupid and stubborn.


He ain't the best anymore. He's bungled one too many surgeries recently (including some of the ex-Ateneo players). I'm sure he's still good buthas fallen of quite a bit recently. Plus, there are a lot of other orthopedic surgeons who are just as good but not as expensive. I'd still recommend goingto his clinic at Moro for rehab though.

i should say he was once the best in the field, he operated my friend 2 years back but the problem with his knee kept on bothering him. although they all itsall in the rehab, need patience. we should change this into the injury thread
