From The Stands keeps rolling along!
Sit with us on the stands as we discuss the teams that have booked early tickets to Boracay. Barako Bull? Global Port Batang Pier? Meralco Bolts? San Miguel Beermen? Rume-relaks.
We also talk about Junemar Fajardo and whether he deserves to be the season MVP. Spoiler alert: It's not a unanimous decision!
And after the break, we talk Ginebra vs Alaska and why each team will win. It's also the weirdest preview ever. Twilight Zone-level.

Episode 91 of From The Stands!
Sit with us on the stands as we discuss the newest coach in the PBA: Manny Pacquiao!
WAIT WHAT.
And after the break, we take a look at PBA players who haven't been able to make their mark in the league even after 5 years. What's the reason for this? And conversely, we look at players who have improved, and what it took for them to get over the hump.

From The Stands Episode 90: The FIFTY ONE POINT Episode!!!
We've hit the big 9-0 on From The Stands! And to celebrate, we're going to bum everyone out by talking about the free-falling Alaska Aces. With coach changes, team turmoil and rumors of sales, it's definitely a rough time being a part of Gatas Republik. We talk about the Aces' current problems, as well as what will happen to the franchise moving forward.
Blech.
On to better things!

We've created a PBA version of the popular NBA meme going around! If you haven't heard about it, here's the challenge: if you had PHP 1,500 to spend on creating your team, how would you do it if each player had a corresponding value? Do you spend for Jayson Castro or Junemar Fajardo? Do you try to get a player with good value across the board? On this episode, we made our own teams and we want to see yours! So make your pics and tweet us your teams!

It's another Totes Amaze Episode of From The Stands!
Sit with us on the stands as we discuss that terrific Game 3 finish of the PBA Commish Cup between San Mig Coffee and Talk n' Text. With two teams this evenly matched, it went down to the last shot made, and a familiar face rose the occasion yet again. 
After the break, we discuss Jayson Castro's BPC win, and whether there were other worthy names (hint: Asi Taulava) who deserved it more than he did. Also, we appreciate James Yap for who he is, what he did, and what he can still do.
It's a love-fest on From The Stands, and it's totes amaze!!!

We discuss how they started, if they are relevant, and whether it should continue to be discussed.
