The Noisiest PBA Offseason

It seems that the Philippine Basketball Association is experiencing its noisiest offseason in recent history. Consider the following events that took place iright smack in the middle of the week.

- Chot Reyes comes back to the PBA and takes over coaching chores for SMB

- Former SMB Coach, Jong Uichico, will go to Ginebra either as head coach or consultant

- An 11-player deal was made that heavily benefitted Ginebra. This event created a howl among non-SMC team coaches indicating that SMC really controls the league. SMC has four teams in the PBA (SMB, Coke, Ginebra and Purefoods)

- Prized Fil-Am sophomore Alex Cabagnot was suspended by Sta. Lucia for breach of contract when he played in a summer league in the US.

- Some Fil-Am rookie draft aspirants cannot pass the appropriate papers in time because of government red-tape thereby affecting draft strategies

And finally this crazy idea... The PBA is contemplating on implementing a three point dunk!
