  1. Good luck to all the competitors.

    Also be reminded that Jinno Rufino will leave Sportsdesk today because he will work full-time with Basketball TV and Solar. (that’s because, next week possibly will be the launching of CNN PH)

    • CNN Phil did not accommodate Jinno as one of its talents. Even Hillary Isaac will have to say goodbye to Daybreak because of the transition.

      • It is also possible that Sportsdesk will no longer be retained on CNNPH, and that Cesca Litton may suffer the same fate as her erstwhile broadcast partner. Baka World Sport PH na ang ipapalit rito.

  2. With what you said, I agree. Both Jinno and Cesca not only hosted Sports Desk, they were also involved behind the cameras.

  3. IMO, there’s really no need to broadcast the NBA games on ABS-CBN, since it’s a general entertainment channel. They should air it instead on Balls (for cable subscribers) and ABS-CBN Sports + Action (for free TV subscribers).

    BTW, let’s go back to the past. Who remembers the time when GMA was the official coveror of the NBA games during the 1980’s and 1990’s?
