PBA enters 42nd season

Stakeholders of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) are optimistic as the league opens its 42nd season this coming Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Coming off a banner year that saw three different teams rule the three conferences, PBA officials are confident that Season 42 will feature parity and competitiveness among the 12 squads, reported ABS-CBN News.

“Because of the parity of the league, meaning halos pantay-pantay na ang lakas ng mga teams, expect that this will be a great season again,” new PBA chairman Rep. Mikee Romero of GlobalPort reportedly said.

“Siguro, ito na ang isa sa pinaka-exciting again na PBA,” added Romero, who touted the presence of members of the Gilas Cadets in each team. “We expect na ang PBA, bakbakan lang kami ng bakbakan diyan.”

PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa reportedly stressed a “focus on excellence” on all fronts for this year – from the owners to the players, even to the media and to the fans.

“As for the PBA itself, I have demanded integrity, dedication to our duties, and a relentless desire to look for ways to improve,” he was quoted as saying.

The All-Filipino Cup will open on November 20 with defending champion San Miguel taking on the Star Hotshots. The Beermen are gunning for a third consecutive title, and team governor Robert Non says they will again rely on their veteran core to lead the way in their title defense, said the news portal.

“Kailangan talaga ng matinding preparation,” Non reportedly said. “All of the other teams, nag-build din. Meron kaming rookies, but I don’t think prepared na sila. So we will rely on our battle-ready veterans to defend the All-Filipino crown.”

The team they played in last season’s Finals, the Alaska Aces, are also raring to get back to work after a difficult campaign in the Governors’ Cup, reported ABS-CBN News.

“We had a longer break in the past few weeks,” Alaska governor Dickie Bachmann reportedly said. “So for this coming season, everyone’s healthy and hopefully, we get back to the finals.”
