PBA: Narvasa likely to resign but wants clean exit

Chito Narvasa technically remains as the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) commissioner. Given the mess the league is in, most feel that the best solution is for him to leave.

PBA Commissioner paying steep price for executive decision

Multiple reports have come out that PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa may soon be out as top brass for Asia’ pro hoops. A lot of that had to do with his decision to approve the celebrated Kia Picanto-San Miguel Beer trade which critics and fans deemed lopsided.

PBA: Gilas Pilipinas likely to take a hit with Standhardinger going to SMB

There were hardly any surprises at the 2017 PBA Draft. Fil-German Christian Standhardinger was unsurprisingly selected by the San Miguel Beermen while Kiefer Ravena joined the NLEX Road Warriors.

PBA: Are the Beermen really after Standhardinger?

The controversial PBA trade between Kia Picanto and the San Miguel Beermen will push through. PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa approved the deal Friday afternoon at a press conference held at the Philippine Arena before game 7 of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.

PBA Governors’ Cup Finals: Will Game 6 turn out like last year?

Game 6 of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals is pretty much set in the same fashion with that of last year. If one checks out the recap of the 2016 edition, the Ginebra Gin Kings come into the game holding a 3-2 advantage over the Meralco Bolts.

PBA is a business, deal with it

Overshadowing the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals is that celebrated trade involving Kia Picanto and the San Miguel Beermen. At stake is the rights to the top overall pick of the 2017 PBA Draft set to take place this coming Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017, at the Midtown Atrium, Robinsons Place Manila.

PBA: SMB-Kia trade will need ‘major’ revisions

Kia Picanto owns the rights to the top overall pick of the 2017 PBA Draft and several teams are understandably trying to strike a deal. TnT KaTropa was previously linked but the latest club to pitch is the San Miguel Beermen.
