GBTBTV Commentary: NBA All Star 2021

For my first ever commentary vlog and since I am big basketball fan, I’d love to discuss last Sunday’s NBA All-Star event.

watch on my commentary YouTube vlog

A lot of people and even some players (like Lebron James) are not in favor of having an all star event because of a lot of factors like players needed this break due to season’s already tight deadline & having back to back games and also mainly because of the current pandemic that we are still having which risks many players in the event and can have a huge impact to the NBA season.

Why still have it then? I personally think that the event is a major source of revenue for the NBA and by not having it, may have a huge impact to the NBA league itself and its operation. And also, for the fan’s interest since this event is an NBA tradition which gathers major hype for the fans all over the world. So this year is very important that the NBA can recuperate for all the loss because of the pandemic and gain back league’s financial stability, and fans interest which I think the all-star players understands.

Skills challenge: Domantas Sabonis wins over Nikola Vucevic

The NBA All-Star first event was quite exciting as the 2 of the NBA’s most skilled centers battled it out for the title. But last 2020’s All-star skills challenge runner up came up the winner, Domantas Sabonis wins it over Nikola Vucevic. A close and quite an exciting one. And by the way, just for the record, he’s the 5th big man who wins it in 6 years.

NBA 3-Point contest: Steph Curry wins it over to Mike Conley in a close one.

Steph Curry of Golden State warriors which regards as the goat of all shooters, if not one of the best the game has ever seen wins the 3 point contest, in a close one versus Mike Conley of Utah Jazz. He becomes the only active player to win this competition twice which is such an amazing feat.

Slam Dunk contest: Anfernee Simons is the slum dunk champion over Obi Toppin

Well, in all honesty slam dunk contest felt like it gotten a bit boring after Zach Lavine and Aaron Gordon match in 2016. It was so great and unique competition between the two that it’s really hard to replicate in the succeeding years. I guess that’s the reason. Nevertheless, this year’s slam dunk battle gave a different vibe and I think Simons deserves it and has the upper hand over Toppin. But a big shoutout to Cassius Stanley for his first dunk which I think tops in all dunks made in the competition.

NBA All Star Game: Team Lebron takes the win over Team Durant

Obviously, Team Lebron has the advantage in this all star game given that Durant is unable to play for his team (due to hamstring injury) and also Embid (due to Covid protocols). And by the way, Lebron, Giannis and Curry in the same team? That’s fantasy team. Plus, Giannis can’t miss, 35 PTS 16/16 FG. Thus, makes him win the first ever Kobe Bryant MVP award.

Overall, even the game was lopsided in favor of Team Lebron, it was fun for the players and mostly for the fans like me. The event was indeed a success!

10 Key Takeaway Traits You Can Learn From Your Best Friend Cat

Hey folks. Rye here of Get back to basics. In my previous blog, I have shared the 10 Key Takeaways Traits from your Best friend Dog.

In this blog, I’ll share what are the 10 Key Takeaway Traits from your best friend Cat

While the dogs rightfully earned their reputation as a man’s best friend because of the fact that their owner is everything to them and are great companions who truly love you unconditionally. On the other hand, we can associate the cats as a woman’s best friend because they are more independent, unpredictable and you have to earn its loyalty first before securing their affection to you that is sealed for life which is very similar to courting and winning woman’s heart.


Here are the 10 Key Takeaway Traits You Can Learn From Your Best Friend Cat

  1. They keep you humble – I mentioned that in order for you to receive and enjoy cat’s love and affection. You must earn, work for it and maintain it. The fact that you need to keep working for their acceptance will keep you humble into some extent.
  2. They have a great sense of balance – one of their unique trait is having a great sense of balance like when you see them walk along the rail of a fence or at the edge of the roof. And even in their fall, it seems that they are always manage to land straight up. It is such a great life aspect we can learn from them.
  3. They are a sharp listener – I believe that cats have a sharp hearing ability that they can listen to the slightest sound and is aware in their surroundings. A skill that is very useful to them, and I think is great to have for us too.
  4. They are polite – in general, one of cat’s good traits is that they have a welcoming attitude, most especially to visitors. They will wait politely to be invited to interact and will wind between your legs when you allow them.
  5. They have an excellent reflex – They are such good in evading things when they are in trouble or when things about to hit them. A trait that we can learn and apply in our lives when facing troubles.
  6. They have a go for it attitude – Cats are brilliant hunters. They watch and silently wait for their prey. Once they see an opportunity, they grab it with full force without hesitation.
  7. They are hygienic – Cats are known for their personal hygiene and general cleanliness. They use their tongues as a wash cloth and a brush to remove loose hair and dust.
  8. They are independent – Cats are famously low-maintenance. They don’t need to be bathed or taken for walks. They can be left on their own for hours. Reason also a stray cat can live longer that a stray dog.
  9. They have a longer life – Losing a pet is heartbreaking but cats can lessen the heartbreaks as they average a lifespan of about 15 years.
  10. They are intelligent – Cats are self-sufficient and can figure out the solutions to their problems on their own through observation as they are quite good at it.

That’s it. Understanding and observing our best friend cat’s good traits and unique behaviors can teach us many valuable lessons in life that we can learn from and definitely apply in our lives as well in some aspect.

How To Become An Effective FULL STACK Content Creator? (For 2021 and Beyond)

In this article, I will be introducing a new terminology that I thought would be fitting if you are a Vlogger and a Blogger at the same time like myself. Also, I’ll share how we can be effective in this field.

I’d like to introduce to you to the term “Full Stack” and what does it mean. In technology development, Full Stack refers to an entire computer system or application from the front end to the back end and the code that connects the two.

If you are in the world of I.T or Information Technology, I’m pretty sure you have already heard the term “Full Stack Developer” wherein it is a person who can develop using both Frontend and Backend of a website application. Similarly as to what “Full Stack Designer” is, where it has a range of skills including UX and UI design, coding, copyrighting, etc.

There’s also what they call Full Stack Marketers who is someone able to manage a lot of marketing operations from creative parts down to the most technical aspects.

In my perspective, if you are a blogger (writing articles for your web blog) and at the same time you are a vlogger (who regularly makes video blogs or vlogs) then YOU ARE A FULL STACK CONTENT CREATOR. Sounds cool right?!

Now. Wait. You may ask. “Isn’t that difficult to sustain and manage both of your Blog site and YouTube channel?”

Well, my answer is “Yes” But, I will give you tips on how you can do that both at the same time and become an EFFECTIVE FULL STACK CONTENT CREATOR.


Let’s assume you have already a setup Blog website and a YouTube channel. Here are some of my tips that I practice as well:

  • Synchronize your niche topic for both of your Blog and Vlog. For e.g. if you blog about gaming, types of games, or how you play a specific game. It will be efficient if that will be your niche topic in your vlog also.
  • Reuse your vlog script for your blog write ups or article. I think most of the Vloggers creates their scripts before recording or going live stream for their vlogs. Make sure when you make your scripts, do it in a way that it is readily available or formatted for blogging like putting title headers, outlines, lists, etc.
  • Exchange references or add links for both of your Vlog and Blog. For e.g. in your Vlog, add a link of your Blog in your channel’s description or even on the video description. Likewise, you add references, links or video embed of your Vlog episode in your Blog article. This will help both platforms gain organic views eventually.
  • Try to post both of your Vlog episode and Blog article sequentially (If both contains the same topic)
  • Lastly, if you are creating a Google Campaign Ads for either your Blog post or YouTube video, make sure it contains a reference with each other so that it can impact views or engagements results both ways, making your Ads very efficient. In my upcoming vlogs, I’ll cite some concrete examples about this part.

That’s it. Try to follow and practice these tips and become and effective FULL STACK CONTENT CREATOR.

By the way, since I provided the tips, I’ll cite an example here right away 🙂

If you are more of a visual person and want to learn by watching, here’s a version of this topic in my recently uploaded vlog in my YouTube Channel.

1. Common sense

Having common sense is one of the most important skills to have in life, and yet many people do not utilize it. This refers to the basic intelligence and logic used to deal with basic every day situations and solve basic problems in life. 
This ability involves thinking about what you’re doing at any one time, being more aware and not forgetting little details which could be important later.


2. Communication or social skills

Having a logical structure to what you say is very important. The way you speak to people and what you say will enable you to develop relationships with them, at work, with your friends etc.
This is a skill that will help you in all areas of your life, whether it’s meeting new people on travels or starting a business. It is such a great asset to combine with other skills which is the recipe for success. 

3. Mastering the money

Money management is an important skill to everyone. Lack of this could lead to serious situation in person’s life where he could manage to lose all his life’s saving due to either having a bad spending habit or a bad investment decision. 
Money has the power to create or the power to destroy. One thing is for sure: you must master money, or it will master you.

4. Empathy

This skill will help to understand others plight and their feelings which makes your social life easier. Not only that but empathy also will help you form your own morals that will guide you in making good choices and become a better person.

5. Time management skills

Time efficiency is not only helpful in school or on our job, it is increasingly valuable the older we get, for the older we get the less and less time we will have, until we retire. To effectively manage our time, we need to eliminate the unnecessary, plan your work, learn to multitask, know when to multitask and reduce interruptions.
