Where is BAL DAVID?

Basketball is my favorite sport since i was a kid, i remember the days when I am cheering my heart out for Ginebra. i think the players I idolized that time were Dante Gonzalgo, Leo Isaac, Dondon Ampalayo, Loyzaga Brothers, Rudy Distrito and Sonny Jaworski.. I love their never-say-die spirit.. Fighting til the end no matter what happens..

During late 90's, my love for basketball came to its full blast when Ginebra San Miguel made a perfect line up in 1996. I do love the Gins trio in Bal David, Noli Locsin and Marlou Aquino! They revived the team and became a team to beat again! But sadly my happiness does not last for long. After winning the championship in '97 and several conferences, the team decided to let go of my idol Kuya Noli Locsin and trade him to Pop Cola.. that was when my dilemma begun. Ginebra would never be the same again. I am witness to the disappointment on The Tank. During my visit to their house, Kuya Noli expresses how sad he is when he was traded to another team in spite of the loyalty he has shown to the team. Still life has to go on, I am a Ginebra fanatic by heart but as I've said, things will never be the same again. Next on the line was Marlou Aquino, he was transferred to Sta. Lucia.

After what happened to my trio, my urge to watch Gin's games lessen.. I lost my enthusiasm although I still hope for the best for them but I'm not the same fanatic as i used to be.

Earlier, i chanced upon a Ginebra video in youtube, I suddenly thought about Bal David.. Where is he now? what keeps him busy.. after he got injured, I haven't heard any news about him.

To my heart's contentment, i just watch several Ginebra videos on youtube and here's one of the numerous memorable games of Ginebra.. a buzzer beater from Bal "The Flash" David!!!
