Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL)

KevinDurantKevinDurant Member ✭✭✭
Senator Manny Pacquiao along with other stakeholders launched this league a few days ago. Former PTV sports anchor Snow Badua is the Commissioner. The following are some important points in their statements.

The league would have five conferences and there are tournaments for cities and barangays.

A tv station would show the provincial games and barangay games would be shown in livestream.

No harm, no foul rule with refs ensuring control.

Tapping to the grassroots level and aim of discovering talents from countryside.

There will be no imports. All tournaments are All Filipino. Fil Ams are allowed.

Certain cities and barangays from Luzon are the primary teams with expansion to Visayas and Mindanao as a long term goal.


Another league means another venue for players to showcase talent and as source of income.

    Bakit hindi na lang itransfer ang Kia Picantos sa MPBL? Malaki ang chance nila dito na maging kauna unahang kampeon :naughty:

    I think the purpose of the league is okay. That is to attract talents from the countryside. Commish Snow have posted in Twitter that there will be an announcement as to the TV coveror and this is a big plus if a giant broadcasting company will help the league.

    TJ Manotoc was at the presser. I don't know if this means something. Also Allan Caidic.

  • As with all Pacquaio side projects, isa lang ang magiging ending nito malamang: Pacquaio will bleed money, prompting him to move on to the next big thing, which in turn will lead eventually to this league dying a natural death.

    Mahilig tayo sa basketball, but hindi naman tayo ganoong kayaman to support another league.

    If Pacquiao has some more political aspirations having a league is actually a sound though costly idea.

    totoo ba tatlong teams pa lang ang committed? baka ang kalabasan nito mala intercolor lang :lol::lol:

    inaugural game brgy tuktukan taguig versus san pascual masbate :lol::lol:

    Don't be surprised if the PBA acts decisively on this latest move by Manny Pacquiao. For someone who doesn't seem to follow contractual obligations (Top Rank vs. Golden Boy, GMA / Solar vs ABS-CBN, BIR arrears), this is not a surprise anymore.

    Pacquiao said there was no problem with the MPBL since it won't rival the PBA as a professional league. But when you can sign up players up to P140k a month, then, no matter how you shape it, it will still be a rival league.

    Pacquiao doesn't have a contract anymore as a player in the PBA, but he remains the head coach of KIA. Will the PBA allow this conflict of interest to continue? Especially with the kind of mockery Pacquiao has done to the league? Then, he gets Snow Badua as his commissioner, who's been mothballed in the PBA because of his differences with Narvasa and Alfrancis Chua and you know it's a problem. There are even teasers (similar to above posted by Ma Utot) inferring to the PBA's tolerance for sister teams. This doesn't bode well to the PBA Board.

    The catch though is that:

    1. Pacquiao is a senator of the republic and PBA team owners may hesitate in banning him from the league to avoid conflict.

    2. Pacquiao is unmistakably the bankroller of the KIA Picantos, with his team headed by Eric Pineda, running the show. Salaries of his players are only up to the P100k-150k mark, but are given perks like staying at the Azure and use of service vehicles. Since he's still the head coach, how will the PBA treat this?

    3. There's a rule that expansion teams are required to stay in the PBA for at least 5 years before considering selling the franchise. If the league penalizes Pacquiao, will KIA stay? And how will the PBA penalize the franchise if in case it decides to disband or sell the franchise?

    It's a catch 22 situation for the PBA Board. How they'll handle this situation is going to be delicate, but my best guess is that they won't rock the boat, get a verbal commitment from Pacquiao that he'll continue supporting the league and try not to be visible in the MPBL, and wait until the 5-year rule expires.
