It wasn’t the passing of the torch. It wasn’t the crowning of a new king. It wasn’t even the playoffs. But, it definitely felt like a game that we will all look back on someday.
When Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the GlobalPort Batang Pier were set to clash on Thursday, I had my eyes set on one aspect of the game. The Bromeo vs. The Spark. That was it. I knew that there was more to these two teams matching-up than that. There was the undefeated slate of the Gin Kings. There was the Japeth and Greg tandem that has been making opposing frontcourts look like they were playing in the PRADA division. But, those side stories didn’t even cross my mind when the game was nearing.
