    NBL-PBA partnership?

    https://www.spin.ph/basketball/pba/k...221116-fbfirst

    PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said he had a virtual meeting with NBL commissioner Jeremy Loeliger and general manager for government relations Tristan Russell on Wednesday, with a memorandum of agreement to be formalized at the soonest possible time.

    ?Nag-meeting kami, gusto nila partnership with the PBA at league-to-league ito. NBL Australia at PBA,? said Marcial.

    Under the partnership, the PBA and NBL will hold collaborations like outreach programs, coaching clinics, referee?s clinics, and exhibition games.

    ?Magdadala sila dito ng team or All-Star na one or two games,? said Marcial, referring to the possible activities that will be lined up under the partnership.

    Specifics of the collaboration are still being ironed out, but this early, there is a possibility of Sotto playing here as part of the PBA-NBL partnership.

    ?Sinabi nila na binanggit nga nila si Kai na maganda ang nilalaro, okay ?yung bata. Future NBA namin ?yun. Okay sila. Baka dadalhin nila dito kung All-Star, kung sila ang kalaban namin,? said Marcial.

    Marcial said the NBL is also inviting PBA teams or an all-star selection to play in Australia.

    ?Iniimbita rin tayo doon. Kahit ano, All-Star, team nila lalaro dito, team natin lalaro doon,? said Marcial.

Brownlee wont help us do that. Dont tell me this is just for the SEA games or Asian games? I dont see any benefit this will give us in the mid to long term. We are better off with a healthy McCullough.

    Or is this SMC just flexing their muscle? All this effort for a guy that is almost past his prime. The recent games showed us that Kai needs help down low and that Kouame and Edu might not be healthy enough to do that. The smart thing would have been to get help down low. But no.

    Agreed on this. Naturalized players should be able to play in the PBA as locals. Just have them take up a Fil-foreigner slot.

    Hopefully, this can help lead to imports for the whole season.

    Chot Reyes really suck in import conferences. It has been 2 years in a row where TNT underperforms in the import conference while being juggernauts in the AFC.

    This is a great idea and all, with the possible high level of competition our local teams would get exposed to. I jist hope the WC-bound foreign federations (at least half of the 15) would strongly consider participating in this tournament.

    This is very good for Phi basketball. I think a lot of Pinoy basketball fans wud be interested to watch/follow this tournament. Hope this will push through.

    By August next year, the 2023 World Cup-bound Gilas pool would already be downsized (maybe a 16-man pool by that time) which means that some pool members who won't make it to the downsized pool could now join their respective PBA mother teams for this proposed mini-tournament in August.

    i agree but how many NPs do we have? Ange and JB soon. So paano, TNT gets Ange as a local and JB goes to Ginebra? tapos magic, Blatche to SMB? need to get an NP for Meralco, Magnolia, and NLEX then this will most likely have a go signal.

    They can use former FSA's - those with at least 2 years of playing experience in PHL collegiate leagues - as fillers, I guess.

    I don’t think there would be a problem If it is an All-Filipino Conference because they are already naturalized but if they include those former FSA's then they may change it into an Open Conference instead plus additional guest team like BAD and those NBL team or team(s) from mainland China among others.

    PBA commissioner Willie Marcial earlier briefed media members about the league's recent board meeting:

    - PBA mulling preseason tournament during the long break after Govs' Cup due to FIBA World Cup

    - PBA may compress its schedule in the third conference due to Cambodia SEAG

    - League will hold games on Christmas, either the semis or Finals

    - All-Star Weekend to be held in Passi City, Iloilo on March 10

    - Board approves EASL participation on March 1 to 5. SMB and TNT won't play during those dates

    - The Governors' Cup will start at least five days after the conclusion of the Commissioner's Cup Finals

    In theory they could start the governors cup while the commissioners cup is still on going, just have the teams who got eliminated in the elimination rd start their conference already. hough not sure if that is financially feasible

    So the first PBA game today isn’t on free tv again while TV5 is showing an old 70s movie I’m pretty sure most people don’t give a sh*t about.

    Forgetting until when their contract runs but the PBA should definitely switch TV partners already.
    No live free tv telecast of the San Miguel vs TNT game as well.

    Frankly, I’m flabbergasted how
    @pbaconnect
    is okay with its games not being on free tv.

    Feels like the 80s in the Philippines where there were only delayed telecasts of NBA games.

    100% unequivocally unacceptable.

    Bring the PBA back to IBC 13

    PBA member MVP is helping to drive the league to the sewage by not airing games on free TV. The irony.

    At least NorthPort can develop players. TerraFirma's a fucking cesspool.

    They players and staff there deserve better. Can that better option feasibly enter the PBA, though?
