    ^Personally thought that the ban was sort of a knee jerk reaction by Narvasa.

    I hate Narvasa as the commissioner. Hope he gets replaced soon.

    Yeah. Seems to be too emotional on his decisions. Lacks due process, I remember he banned a reporter for entering all PBA activities for controversial articles written about a PBA Team Manager.

    And now, there are 4 teams left.

    SMB vs Brgy Ginebra (SMB up 1-0)
    Magnolia vs NLEX (Game 1 tonight)

    Who are you guys picking?

    That's 3 SMC teams vs 1 from MVP. But, who knows?

    Prayers up for Ping. Hope he is well.

    Kiefer is a keeper. He plays with confidence, clutch during crunch time and exudes high basketball IQ.

    I am predicting SMB will dominate this season again. No one can contain June Mar and the one person that probably can will be his teammate very soon. SMB is just too loaded, it is unfair.

    ^I haven't been watching games lately, I only check the final scores...

    What happened to Slaughter? I always thought the PBA will be a Fajardo vs Slaughter show...

    I honestly don't watch local basketball anymore...

    But I know a lot of kids who wish to play professional basketball someday. (even parents who wish their kids can make it to the pros)

    PBA limit of five Fil-foreigners per team comes under scrutiny amid MPBL controversy | SPIN.ph

    IMO, I'm really against the rule that limits Fil-foreigners and foreigners.
    May it be in professional and collegiate leagues.

    They should just scrap the Fil-foreigners and imports...
    Each team should have a "salary cap" and foreigners should be allowed to compete roster slots equally.

    Not the PBA... But still Philippine basketball.

    I find it sad that some players just can't seem to retire... At the same time, I find it funny that other personalities think they are deserving to be part of a team's roster.

    Bong Go? Really???

    Shout out to Jondan, Andre, Ray, and Macmac.

    Guaranteed sellout crowd for the Mandaluyong vs Marikina game. Daming Badinger Z for sure.
