We will begin the 2016-2017 season with a huge game between the San Miguel Beermen and Star Hotshots.
Star made a lot of changes in their roster in the offseason. Of course, their biggest move was the swap of James Yap to Paul Lee. That deal will improve their team in the court, no matter how you see it. San Miguel, on the other hand boosted their bench without giving up any one of their core players.
Prediction I think, San Miguel will have an easy time here. The re-shaped Star will play their first game together and that will surely lead to a lot of adjustment from the players. San Miguel will not have that kind of problem as they get the W.
