Despite being practically sister teams, the Gin Kings and the Beermen share a colorful rivalry through the years. The last time these two teams met in the final round was during the 2009 Fiesta Conference, with SMB coming out on top in seven games.
If back then fans talked trash with opposing followers while attending the game itself, today, they elevate competitive heckling to new heights, thanks to social media.
Days before the matchup even begins, it's safe to say the mudslinging has already started.
For starters, June Mar Fajardo looks thrilled with new competition.
More so, Ping's DOTA buddy is out for revenge.
Japeth Aguilar has something to say about that, though.
We'd be lying if we said that 'The Kraken' vs 'The Eagle' is the only matchup we're dying to see.
Will Ginebra (7th seed) continue its giant-killing streak?
Either way, the PBA's No. 1 fan will always be there to cheer for the underdogs.
As for Ginebra's eternal haters, Mark Caguioa doesn't even need words.
