Goodbye Air 21, Welcome NLEX

Asi Taulava - Air 21

The Philippine Basketball Association Board of Governors approved the sale of Air 21 to Metro Pacific Investments Corp. which owns NLEX. Manny V Pangilinan now has three teams in the PBA: Talk N Text, Meralco and NLEX. Since NLEX acquired Air 21, there will be just two additional teams for the PBA 40th Season, KIA Motors and Blackwater Sports.

What will happen to the Air 21 Express Players? We will find out soon but there will be a lot of trades before the 40th season begins.

Welcome to the PBA, NLEX!
