PBA mulls bringing back ‘no-harm, no-foul’ rule amid clamor for faster games

MANILA, Philippines – New season. New commissioner. New PBA.

That’s where the Philippine Basketball Association looks well headed for, with several PBA team officials all mulling proposals to improve the conduct of the game and make the PBA play more appealing to the fans.

All are looking forward to January 26, the first meeting of the PBA board of governors after it plunged into a deep crisis on the unpopular Kia-San Miguel Beer trade approved by commissioner Chito Narvasa.

“The search for the new commissioner is on top of the agenda, but it’s expected that several proposals will be put on the table because it’s the first board meeting in the new season,” said PBA officer-in-charge Willie Marcial.

There’s a strong clamor for the PBA to return to the “no-harm, no-foul” rule.

“We should go back to that. This is basketball, and basketball is really a physical game. We should allow physicality but of course not the dirty ones,” said Blackwater team owner Dioceldo Sy.
