It’s been a while, so it’s only proper that we reintroduce ourselves once more. We hope this short piece will suffice for the mean time.
Hi there. We’re Humblebola, we specialize in the use of advanced statistics in Philippine Basketball. We’ve had three versions of this website already, and we won’t bore you with the details of how those went about. If you’re so curious about the complete back story, read the piece on it here. Long story short, this site has been around for quite some time now, and has gone through significant changes after every overhaul. The site went dormant, but it never meant there was going to be more changes to come. As the saying goes, “shit happened.” We’re not reinventing the wheel and introducing a fourth version of Humblebola. We’re picking the pieces right up and working with this third, awesome version that we have. It was awesome before shit happened. We’re ready to move on from that now.
This then begs the question, what type of content should we expect from Humblebola? The core content of what made Humblebola what it is remains the same. Meaningful analysis that’s meant to create fruitful discussion within the Philippine Basketball community. We’ve used advanced statistics a lot, but that isn’t the be-all and end-all of analysis. There’s also clips, whether it be videos or GIFs. Then there’s charts, or something as simple as words can showcase one’s thoughts on basketball.
We’ve had four “soft-opening” pieces to reintroduce ourselves. To be honest, we know these things can’t completely capture what Humblebola exactly is. We have to make it up to you. It’s been a while, but the important thing is, we’re here, and we’re in it for the long haul. We love what we do and we’re hoping that you get to love the type of content we’ll create, all for the sake of meaningful discussions of the sport that races our minds 24/7.
