Should the PBA expand?

thescenethescene Member PExer
What do you guys think?? With a lot of players not getting drafted or signed, do you think it's time for the league to expand? Should they keep up the current number so that only the best of the best players will play in the league?

    the pba seems to think so. the board last year approved the expansion of up to twelve teams for the league.

    once interested, the lamoiyan group as well as the yu group have had a drop in fervor as for as joining the pba is concerned...

    the pba says that there are four major firms interested in joining.

    but, with the trying economic times, tingin ko stir lang yun... IMO lang...

    I think the PBA should put expansion at this time, with the influx of players going to the league annually, minsan ung ibang may talent nababaon lang. Pero agree din ako dun sa last post regarding sa economic times, companies might see na hindi muna nila priority ang pagsali sa liga.

    nah.. if they wanna expand they should expang to 16 teams na..... something like that and think hard about the format and the scheduling... nakakapagod ang mga changes sa pba...... wlaang stability....

    i don't think so
    improve the quality of the games and their ratings before thinking of adding new teams

    to improve game quality, hindi puedeng may isang team na papasok sa finals four straight times, three in a year.

    too monotonous...

    if they had more teams and a calendar which is more respectable than the three conference season...

    yun puede sa quality improvement...

    on ratings: put in more teams, less monoteneity, more hits from tv screens round the metro.

    tingin ko lang...

    this year lang yan may reinforced right?

    kasi yung second conference na regular will be the two week invitationals? (the other being the all filipino)

    tama ba?

    16 teams?

    the pba is an ad business for teams.

    with 16 teams, that's too little airtime for the other terams, which means that the board will vehemently reject the notion.

    its an ok idea, but it isn't very feasible...

    i think that they can work their way around the 12 team thing better than propose a 16 team league...

    i'm not sure....all i know is the all-filipino will be very long(ala NBA na rin ata)

    ako sure din ako dun.

    pero sa swapang na team owners, hindi ata kasya yung one trophy for the year.

    so they had to put another conference, but long ones hurt the pba, they figure.

    so pagkaalam ko they retain the invitationals...

    ateneo10: Have to agree that it is just not feasible. Pera at Pulitika. Typically Pinoy. :(
  • peejay1phpeejay1ph Member PExer
    invitationals will be fine i think as long as the foreign teams they will invite are strong as well!!

    best time in 2005
    since no draft will happen from now until then
    by 2005 there will be an abundant pool of players

    ADD 2 TEAMS
  • unportunport Member PExer
    pwede na nga siguro 12 teams... considering they are decreasing the number of conferences in one year..pwede na...plus hindi lahat ng potential ng players nailalabas kasi ngayon miski superstar na babangko na din...

    expand na...kahit 20 teams... basta maganda packaging and promotions (among others)... i think it would be interesting to see the young guns now battle the veterans...

    sana lahat ng players may opportunity to strut their wares in the hardcourt
  • peejay1phpeejay1ph Member PExer
    cguro start w/ 2 expansion teams.....then 1 team every 1 or 2 years

    not at this time because attendance is shrinking. looking at it from an economic standpoint, di puwede talaga. bakit ka magpapalago ng negosyo kung wala namang pumapasok na pera sa kaban mo?

    pba = new teams = pay membership fee = more money for the league

    new teams = more excitement = more fans + more games = increased gate receipts

    expansion is definitely feasible especially now that we have a lot of talents..not only from uaap and ncaa..but also fil-ams..
