PBA, D-League opening moved to later date due to NCOV outbreak
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said Wednesday that about “95 percent” of all players are cleared of the coronavirus disease COVID , and the remaining five percent have yet to complete their respective swab tests. Teams will also be communicating whether there have been positive tests throughout the process, added Marcial. Marami pang hindi pa nate-test. Wala pa sa amin lahat. Hindi pa kumpleto,” he told ESPN5. All teams were originally scheduled to undergo swab testing at the Makati Medical Center last August 20 and 21 — two weeks after the original planned date, which was moved due to the Philippine government shifting Metro Manila back to a tighter modified enhanced community quarantine MECQ.

That means, these players can participate in events in the upcoming period.

They all failed to show the necessary documents needed to be cleared. Purefoods team captain and union co-spokesman Alvin Patrimonio, Zaldy Realubit and Bonel Balingit, however, signed the deportation request. The five alleged Fil-shams were found to be lacking in necessary documents to prove their citizenship although Lastimosa said it is common knowledge within the league these players have genuine Filipino lineage and that only time is needed before they could produce their papers.
Likewise, Lastimosa, the Rookie of the Year, claimed he has other names in mind. Belasco has been in the country since , the year he was drafted and signed up by the now defunct Pop Cola franchise.

Why more PBA players need to talk about mental health
Roger Yap aired his side after Mayor Vico Sotto slammed a “former PBA player” over his alleged treament of Pasig City personnel distributing financial aid to residents. He wasn’t named by the mayor, but some netizens guessed he was the one involved as a former teammate of Sotto’s brother-in-law Marc Pingris. In Mariz Umali’s report for “24 Oras,” Yap said he did not get angry with the city hall personnel and that Sotto probably misinterpreted what happened. Ang dumating kay Mayor, nagmumura daw ako, nagwawala daw ako diyan,” he said.
Yap said he only told the city hall personnel that they were wrong to distribute food coupons instead of relief goods. Humingi rin naman siya ng pasensya sa akin.
During the annual PBA players meeting prior to the start of the center will explore the possibility of re-scheduling the event for a later date.
The meeting, according to Marcial, is for the purpose of explaining to the players measures the league will be adopting once the planned training and practices by group is finally allowed to resume. Other pressing matters in relation with the resumption of activities following a three-month hibernation due to lockdown as an aftermath of the coronavirus, the commissioner told The Manila Times on Sunday, can also be discussed.
Una sa lahat, we will be discussing with the players in regards to practices and condition, which the government has finally allowed. They have to undergo rapid test, swab test, and another rapid test every 10 days before being allowed to practice. Sign in. Log into your account.

And at the same time, it has been serving as a second chance for former PBA players who wish to continue their careers. The league started off with a pre-season tournament which involved 6 teams. Now, there are 31 teams from all over the country and each team is very much competitive.
After their first win, Chris Ross used his post-game interview to send a message. “There’s mental health issues. People go through things.
PBA players are among the many Filipinos enduring the enhanced community quarantine which was imposed by the Philippine government over the entire mainland of Luzon until April The quarantine simply means there won’t be any of the usual grind for most of the league’s players, but its effects are more felt by a handful of others for a variety of reasons.
All four have committed until the end of the currently-suspended Philippine Cup before hanging up their sneakers, but mapping out the final leg of their careers will be a little tricky since the league has yet to determine how it will proceed with the season’s schedule at the end of the lockdown on April Simon’s jersey retirement is put on hold, too. Team governor Rene Pardo wanted to commence the ceremonies during this year’s first installment of the Manila Clasico on May 10, but that will have to be moved to an indefinite date even if the extended quarantine ends as scheduled since the league will not restart immediately after that.
TNT’s Harvey Carey is also facing the same situation, though he’s non-committal on his retirement plans and is looking to chase another title with the KaTropa until the end of the season. An extended suspension could bode well for players dealing with injuries since this may give them the time they need to heal so they can jump back into action with their respective teams. Based on their original timetables, Magnolia’s Raffy Reavis appendicitis , Blackwater’s Mac Belo knee and Meralco’s Raymond Almazan left meniscus could be available when games resume.
Reavis was already about a week away from returning when before the season was paused; Belo out two months as reported late February and Almazan a month away early March are expected to be fully past their expected dates of recovery as well. NorthPort is in a wait-and-see mode in the situations of guards Robert Bolick right ACL tear and Jonathan Grey right patellar tendon tear , who were initially ruled out of the All-Filipino conference before play was halted.
Both were reportedly ruled out until August; if their timetables hold and if the PBA restarts on June, the duo could come back to the Batang Pier backcourt at the tail end of the eliminations and help the team push for a playoff berth. The returns of Phoenix big men Jake Pascual ACL and Dave Marcelo bone spurs depend on their respective timelines as well, though the latter is the one who’s more likely to see action in the Philippine Cup between the two — Marcelo was reported to be prospectively available at the latter part of the conference.
Calvin Abueva’s fate after the quarantine, of course, still hinges on the decision of the league’s top officials.
Which PBA players are most affected by the break brought by the COVID-19 pandemic?
People go through things. In the Philippines, the stigma against discussing mental health is still strong. Just think of the many outdated terms that are casually dropped in conversation— may topak, may sayad, may tililing —that lump all mental health conditions together, regardless of kind or severity, and with an implied dose of disapproval. And yet the Philippines has the highest number of reported cases of depression in Southeast Asia. A study by the Global Burden of Disease says 3.
On the contrary, athletes themselves are at risk: the high-pressure environment of professional leagues places them in a stressful position, while their fame amplifies the weight of their decisions.

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto on Tuesday, May 5, vented anger at an “ex-PBA player” whom he did not name, for berating a city government worker who was handing him an aid package. The former professional cager, who lives in Pasig Green Park subdivision, was supposedly underwhelmed by the local government’s food handout, and he took out his frustration on the worker.
He probably found it too little — but I know that person is well off, a former PBA player. Bakit daw ganu’n lang ‘yung pinamimigay. Kung naliliitan siya du’n sa pinamimigay ng city, ibig sabihin, hindi niya kailangan ‘yon! He cussed at our team leader. How come that was all they were giving out, he asked. If he found what the city was giving too little, then it means he did not need it! Sotto added that the former player used to be a teammate of his brother-in-law, Marc Pingris , the husband of his sister Danica Sotto-Pingris.
Kayo na lang ang mag-usap. Siya na bahala sa ‘yo. Kuya Marc knows who it is. You two talk.
New Agreement to Promote Global Cue Sports Governance
ON the occasion of the 45th anniversary of its founding, the PBA, Asia’s first professional basketball league, is lining up a series of activities to celebrate its fabled past and re-introduce its pioneer teams and great players to present-day fans. We at SPIN. So we sat down as a team a few weeks ago, deliberated for hours, voted on some choices, and came up with this list. Just some notes.
But we made sure to go beyond the scope of those lists to make our own choices. Also, these selections were based purely on the personal preferences and judgement of the SPIN.

Marcial is also to meet with coaches from all 12 teams on July 10 to discuss the safety measures and to find out whatever concerns need to be addressed. We miss the baskets, the balls and the smell of the gym. Barangay Ginebra San Miguel coach Tim Cone, on the other hand, said important details need to be ironed out before they can think of heading back to their practice facilities. A lot of work still left to do before we get back on court.
The PBA had proposed that practices will be divided into batches composed of four players and one trainer each under the watchful eye of a safety officer. Several teams have already made plans in anticipation of the return.
