After Mahindra mess, will PBA Players’ Union be restored?

October 05, 2015

With the ugly mess happening between the Mahindra Enforcers management and its players and coaches over claims of the team’s failure to honor contract obligations, there were some questions whether a labor union exists in the PBA.

Apparently, there is one, although it is not active anymore. The PBA Players’ Union was formed during the 1990s by some of the biggest names in the PBA, including “The Living Legend” Robert Jaworski, four-time PBA Most Valuable Players Ramon Fernandez and Alvin Patrimonio, and the late Arnie Tuadles, among others.

Multi-titled collegiate coach Franz Pumaren served as its founding president.

“Robert Jaworski was the chairman at that time, then I was elected president and Ramon Fernandez was the vice chairman. Alvin Patrimonio and the late Arnie Tuadles were also playing active roles and Tonichi Yturri handling the day to day operations,” Pumaren told InterAksyon.com in a telephone interview....

Those were the words of PBA board chair Robert Non, who flew back for home on Saturday morning but not after stating that Asia’s pioneering pro league is ready to alter its schedule for the coming season to accommodate Gilas Pilipinas.

“Basketball is enjoying a progress in the country, and it’s a matter of continuing that progress and retaining the glory,” Non told Filipino scribes over breakfast, shortly before heading for the airport to board a flight for Hong Kong together with some members of the board....

The different approach was evident during Star's tuneup match against Alaska on Wednesday, which ended in a draw. Regulation play ended at 83-83 after Star big man Rafi Reavis scored on a driving layup at the buzzer.

"It's (system being used) a lot different than the triangle, that's for sure because it's more up-tempo," Mallari told Philstar.com....

He is reunited with his former coach Tim Cone. | PBA Images File PhotoMANILA, Philippines — LA Tenorio welcomed the entry of new boy Joe Devance to Barangay Ginebra, whom the team acquired in the six-player, four-team trade that was approved last Monday by PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa.

The 5-foot-9 Ginebra sentinel said Devance's vast know-how of the triangle offense can help the Gin Kings adapt quickly to the complicated system being employed by new coach Tim Cone.

"Siyempre mas mapapadali na ngayon kay coach Tim. Bukod din sa akin, alam na alam na ni Joe yung triangle," Tenorio told Philstar.com after the team's practice on Thursday at the CCF gym in Pasig....

No more roster change for Star says Webb

October 02, 2015

James Yap of Star Hotshots. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesMANILA, Philippines -- After letting go of veteran forward Joe Devance in a six-team, four-player deal early this week, Star Hotshots coach Jason Webb feels his team is ready to rumble in the 41st PBA set to kick off on Oct. 18 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The 6-foot-7 Devance moved over to Barangay Ginebra in a stunning trade on Monday, but in exchange, the Hotshots acquired the services of promising big man Jake Pascual and wingman Ronald Pascual.

The trade made the Hotshots younger in the frontcourt after letting go of the 33-year-old Devance, though the immediate concern, according to Webb, is how to integrate the two Pascuals in the scheme of things....
