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!

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.

Learned Lessons From 2020 and Live A Positive Life in 2021 and Beyond

We are now in the year ending month (December) of this year 2020, before we say goodbye to it. Looking back, all through out the year we have had a lot of struggles and challenges either personal or the people in general because of the pandemic impact. Many people have lost its jobs, businesses shutdown and countless deaths due to it.

I think this upcoming holidays whether you are a Christian or not, each of us can reflect to all the happenings and learn from it. We can use the learnings we’ve had moving forward to the next year 2021 and in the coming years as well.


My 5 Learned Lessons this Year 2020 Which I Can Bring to Next Year 2021 and Live A Positive Life

  1. Learn to appreciate your Job whatever it is. I remember, way back when it was still normal, I tend to lose my focus at time with my Job, probably because you hate your boss, or you don’t like the task assigned to you. But right now, you’ll realize how important is your job and never take it for granted as it feeds you, your family and provide its needs.
  2. Learn to save and manage money. Since we have experienced this kind of global pandemic, we understand now how vulnerable our job is and can easily gone. In case we lost our job, a backup savings is an important factor to remedy the lost job and help us get cover our financial needs while we don’t have a job yet. We can only do this if we learn to manage our money and spend it wisely.
  3. Keep on learning. When you find something that you were good at, take the time to cultivate it and work hard at mastering it. There’s no time to learn and improve self but now.
  4. Treat others with respect and love, the way you wished to be treated fairly and reciprocated the love and respect you deserved. This year have taught us that this is vital for us to achieve peace globally.
  5. Love your family, your wife/husband and your children as if it’s the last time you’ll ever see them because you really never know what will happen tomorrow. This pandemic shows how life is short lived and can be taken away easily.

The Bonus Part:

Be positive as much as we can. For sure we can never avoid having negative thoughts given all the bad happenings and unfortunate events came forth this year and time can only if we will encounter another one. Hopefully never again. But whatever happens in the future, its always great to have a positive mind. Train our mind to catch negative thoughts and when they arise, immediately stop and replace your thoughts with positive ones.

I always believe in the saying that, when life provides you lemons, make lemonade! In most cases, you’re in charge of whether you see a situation in a negative or positive light. With determination and continious practice, obtaining a positive outlook will presumably come naturally.

Post parting words

I am optimistic that the Year 2021 will be a year to rebuild, healing and abundance. Let’s change our ways for the better and start our next year strong.

Thanks and I hope this article kinda gives you a bit of positivity and let’s you look forward for a great next year.

I got now my first 100 + Subs on YouTube | A Big Thank You Shout Out!

So having said this and also as this is become my habit personally that I will give my utmost thanks and make a post on every achievement-step I make in this content creation world (Blogging/Vlogging)

a BIG SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to everyone who supports my YouTube channel at its baby steps. Looking forward when it grows even further. I will continue to create quality content and provide you a dose of motivation, inspiration and helpful information about self-development and many more.

My latest Vlog about the Law of Attraction

Post parting words

If you are beginning to explore and planning to start your own YouTube channel vlog, blog or Facebook page to share your unique or helpful ideas, there’s no other time to start but now. The most difficult part will be in the beginning. But once you get into groove, things will improve and get better. Just believe yourself you can do it. Believing in yourself means having faith in your own capabilities. It means believing that you CAN do something — that it is within your ability. When you believe in yourself, you can overcome self-doubt and have the confidence to take action and get things done.

Thank you in advance.

What is The Law of Attraction? How to use it Effectively?

Hey everyone, Rye here of Get Back to basics. In this Blog, I wanna share my perspective about The Law of Attraction principle or theory. Do you believe in this? Let’s find out and check this out.

First, let’s understand what the Law of Attraction is first.

In google search results it says “It is the ABILITY to attract into our lives WHATEVER we are focusing on.”

Also, according to Wikipedia, it states that “it is a BELIEF that a positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life.”


For me, I love the idea wherein if we think a thought, we speak a word, the universe will listen and respond to us by giving what we desire.

BUT… I don’t believe on this theory alone because in reality it is missing something very important and also implies denial of any negative thoughts which can work against you.

I think, we make a little change to the theory so that we can implement it in our lives successfully. I would change this as “The Law of Attraction with Action”.

There’s this favorite quote of mine from Mahatma Gandhi that says “Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny

I think this great quote from Mahatma Gandhi compliments the Law of Attraction theory. I believe that we create our reality and results by the internal choices we make, including how we respond to our thoughts.

We definitely cannot rely on the theory alone, this can be effective only if we enforce and commit to ACTIONS in whatever we think us to have or become.

To put this in another perspective, ACTIONS will be the energy or gas that fuels the Law of Attraction. In other words, we cannot solely focus on our thought intentions, we must also take action and make a habit of those actions by doing whatever must be done to reach that goal in reality.

Remember this, “The Law of Attraction with Action” is mastering our thoughts and focus in what we really desire and take actions habitually. Then after following this, we will surely start to see amazing results that the universe may bring to us.

How to Deal with YouTube Success (for all YouTubers/Vloggers)

In this vlog, I’ll share to my fellow YouTubers my Biggest Plan if ever I will be able to knockdown a Success in the world of YouTube like the legendary ones I look up to such as Mr. BEAST and PewDiePie (international), and Raffy Tulfo in Action or RTIA and Ranz Kyle & Niana (local). You can be like them, we will never know but it is always good if we have a plan on how to deal with this HUGE SUCCESS currently in the WORKS.

The first step will start with asking these questions: What will you do? What is your plan? I think if you dream big, it is better if you plan big as well. I want to share with you guys now what I’ll do when that BIG time comes: (also this would serve as a reminder for me as well) so yeah, lets go check on my list. 


#1 Be Humble

Huge success, oftentimes can change a person’s attitude, becoming arrogant or braggart. For me this is one very important thing I have to see for myself that I stay grounded in whatever success I can attain in this YouTube journey. I always believe that humility can make a person stay successful because they understand that this achievement is a blessing, not thinking less of myself though, but more of thinking myself less.

#2 Allocate My Earnings

If the time comes that I am earning a lot, I need to manage my money wisely. I’ll create a list where my money will go such as the following:

  • A portion goes to improving my YouTube channel, like buying the best pc, software (for animation, video editing, etc.) and other tools that I will need for my animated vlog. 
  • A portion goes to my family needs such as improving the house, getting a car, getting an insurance for everyone. And… 
  • A portion goes to the family savings
  • Lastly, a portion goes to my charity savings where I would also use this in times there’s a calamity or a disaster in my country so that I can use it to help people in need. 

#3 Celebrate

I’ll celebrate my YouTube success a little with my family and friends which is a way of telling thanks those who supported me all the way… And then

#4 Continue Working and Improving

Achieving top success doesn’t mean I’ll stop. There will be another mountaintop, greater heights to reach for sure. I’ll keep working hard and improving as a YouTuber. I might reveal my real identity in the future probably.

Real identity revelation? Yes? 😀

OR NOT… (just kidding)

Real identity revelation? Not 😀

Seriously, we can contemplate and reflect within ourselves about our accomplishments and next goals to reach.

#5 Share the lessons and experience

Sharing is caring. Sounds cliché but this is totally true. My knowledge comes from many people I looked up to in this life. I wouldn’t be what I am if not to them. So for me, this is like paying it forward where It affects people in a good way because if you do something good to someone, they will feel loved and most likely do something good for someone else. I think this is what life is all about honestly. 


#6 Share the blessings

I live simple and I don’t want anything too fancy in my life. Everything in excess is I plan to share with others in many ways which I can share in another vlog topic.

#7 Keep the balance

Reaching greater heights of success can bring a lot of noises in life and it is important for me to keep balance in all aspects of my life: relationships, work, fitness and health, and emotional well-being. 

Post parting words

This is all on my list so far which I am committed to do when I achieve success in the world of YouTube. If you are a newbie vlogger like myself, what would you do? Let me know in the comment section.

GBTB Youtube Channel: 5 Most Important Life Skills
GBTB Facebook Page: 5 Most Important Life Skills

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.

Let’s learn these life skills so we can deal effectively whatever demands and challenges may throw at us in this life.
