PBA shelves expansion plans

May 20, 2016

MANILA, Philippines – PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa said the other day that with expansion in the back burner, he will focus attention on the immediate goals of growing the operations, making the league more relevant and creating a lively game atmosphere of fan engagement.

Narvasa disclosed that at least four corporations are in line for new franchises but the Board of Governors appears inclined to hold off for at least two years. “Expansion is up to the Board,” he said. “Right now, we’re trying to perfect our system so that every franchise gets maximum value with the available venues. My commitment to the team owners is to run the league efficiently and make sure every game is fair and square. At the end of every game, there should be no doubt that the better team won.”

The PBA was conceived as non-stock, non-profit. What we want is to professionalize the league’s operations and you don’t need to make the PBA a corporation to achieve that objective.”

A management expert with an extensive financial background, Narvasa said he has reorganized the league where designated department heads or directors report to him through assistant Pita Dobles, in charge of all administrative matters. Dobles is Narvasa’s filter and also acts as the centralizing executive for functions such as purchasing....

June Mar Fajardo vs Greg Slaughter. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netIn what could possibly be the closest statistical race in years, June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter are neck-and-neck for this PBA season’s Most Valuable Player award.

Fajardo, the reigning two-time MVP, remains to be the pacesetter with his 27.52 average statistical points (SPs) through the end of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals, but only by a mere 0.01 SP.

Fellow Cebuano and rival center Slaughter sits closely at second with 27.51....

At the end of the quarterfinals, Slaughter has accumulated an average of 34.2 statistical points (SPs) built on averages of 17.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.3 blocks per game over 12 contests.

Unfortunately for Slaughter, his BPC campaign took a huge hit after the Gin Kings were ousted at the end of the quarterfinals of the PBA Commissioner's Cup by the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters....

April 21, 2016

 Tim Cone. Philippine Star photoMANILA, Philippines – The long dry spell continues for Barangay Ginebra over seven years now since winning the team’s last championship in the 2007-08 PBA Fiesta Conference under coach Jong Uichico.

A return to glory land has been elusive even with all the team’s coaching changes from Siot Tanquingcen to Alfrancis Chua, Ato Agustin, Jeff Cariaso, Juno Sauler, Frankie Lim and Tim Cone.

Under Cone with all the championships under his belt, the Gin Kings have failed to make it past the quarterfinals in two conferences....

Tim Cone says Ginebra ‘didn’t live up to never-say-die legacy’ in playoff exit

April 20, 2016

Tim Cone. PBA Media Bureau file photoSince taking over as coach of Barangay Ginebra at the start of this season, legendary mentor Tim Cone has had to get used to early playoff exits.

Cone, the winningest coach in PBA history with 18 championships, found himself disappointed on Tuesday as his Kings, for the second straight conference, were unable to get past the quarterfinal round as they fell in a two-game sweep in their best-of-three series with the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.

“It was the wrong time, obviously, to have an off-night. But that’s the next level for us, learning how to collectively play big games and big moments. The game was incredibly painful lesson for all of us, me especially,” Cone wrote in a text message to sportswriters....
