New commish hopes to improve games

May 23, 2015

MANILA, Philippines - Chito Narvasa will become the PBA’s ninth commissioner on Aug. 1 and said yesterday he’s looking forward to improving the game with officiating his priority in making sure the 40-year-old league’s future is secure.

Narvasa, 58, has been involved in basketball from when he began to play the sport as a 10-year-old boy. He saw action for the Ateneo varsity, became a PBA head coach with Purefoods and Shell, served as UAAP and NCAA commissioner for a season each and is the president of the Basketball Coaches Association of the Philippines (BCAP). It’s an enduring love affair that will now reach a pinnacle with the dream job of PBA commissioner.

Because the work is full-time, Narvasa will give up all his current positions, including Vice Chairman/CEO of City State Savings Bank which is owned by Ambassador Antonio Cabangon-Chua. “I’ll be watching games five days a week,” he said. “It’s a full-time commitment. Besides, the Central Bank won’t allow staying with City State anyway. When I was considered for the job, I informed the Ambassador of the possibility of joining the PBA. He knows basketball has always been my love and promised to support and help me in any way he could. I wanted the Ambassador to know about it before he heard it from somebody else. It’s this transparency that I’ll bring to the PBA. That’s how I work. If you’re open with what you’re doing, the work becomes easier. I never hide anything from anyone. What I’ll do as commissioner is for the benefit of the league, nothing else.”...
