PBA sees condensed conference schedule in restart

The Philippine Basketball Association is looking at a possible condensed tournament as soon as the government gives the go-signal to resume competition amid the pandemic. League Commissioner Willie Marcial said that the Philippine Cup could run within a month or two depending on the game schedule the PBA Board will approve. “May nakaplano na kami. Nagpagawa na ako ng shortened at yung full conference na laro. So ipi-present pa rin namin sa Board,” said Marcial on Tuesday during the online session of the Philippine Sportswriters’ Association Forum. [Related story: Batangas, Laguna, Araneta all options for 'PBA Bubble'] Marcial also mentioned that the TV coverage schedule will also be a big factor in deciding the length of the PBA restart.   The PBA’s broadcast partner has allotted three TV coverage schedule per week. “Kasi mayroon tayong [dami] parang appearance ng teams kada conference so kailangang pag-usapan yun. Baka hindi natin ma-meet yun,” Marcial said. “Tapos ang problema ko ‘yung araw-araw. Ang ibinibigay lang sa atin ng TV5 Wednesday, Friday, Sunday.” In this set-up, the conference would run for two months. Another option that the PBA is looking at is to hold games every day with some playdates airing on other available channels of its broadcast partner. “Siguro puwede tayong mag-araw-araw pero di sa TV5. Nandyan ang One Sports, Rush, Cignal. Madami pang pag-uusapan tungkol doon,” said Marcial. This according to the official is one of the matters that the Board will discuss in another round of meeting which will also include the proposal adapting a ‘bubble concept’ for the season to push through.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
