    Who ended up where? Here's first look at teams' official lineups

    Sep 26, 2012

    AFTER an offseason of frantic wheeling and dealing and varying tactics, the 10 PBA ballclubs brandished their new lineups during Wednesday's official press launch of the new season at the Diamond Hotel.

    Alaska and Air21, two teams out to bounce back from disappointing seasons, showed up with lineups shuffled from top to bottom. On the other hand, Talk 'N Text put forward a team made up of the same, old faces.

    The Express shored their backcourt with the entry of former Barangay Ginebra guard John Wilson, bolstered the frontline with Nonoy Baclao, Rob Reyes, KG Canaleta and 6-8 rookie Yousif Taha and added former La Salle playmaker Simon Atkins.

    On the other hand, Alaska has a good mix of the old and new. Former Smart Gilas standout guard JVee Casio, acquired in a blockbuster trade last month, along with rookie guard Rafi Reyes, will be leading the Aces, injecting much-needed youth in a veteran-laden squad.

    Nic Belasco, Eddie Laure and Dondon Hontiveros are the veteran players of Alaska, which has been the most impressive team in the offseason.

    In contrast, the Texters have yet to make a single move. Reigning Governors Cup champion Rain or Shine, on the other hand, made just one - grabbing longtime amateur star Chris Tiu.

    Here's a first look at the official lineups and see for yourself which teams progressed and which teams took a step backwards ahead of the new season kicking off on Sunday.
