PBA adjusts PBA Schedule for Gilas Pilipinas


After a meeting between Gilas Pilipinas Coach Chot Reyes and the Philippine Basketball Association, the PBA Board of Governors agreed to compress the PBA 39th Season which now ends July 15 by shortening the PBA Commissioners Cup and Governors Cup Finals to a best-of-5 series and also moving the opening of the PBA 40th Season to October 19 after the 2014 Asian Games in South Korea which starts September 19.

This gives Chot Reyes 45 days to prepare with a complete team for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain which starts August 30 and the 2014 Asian Games in South Korea. But practices start every Monday after the current PBA Philippine Cup.

Here’s a tweet by Coach Chot Reyes (@coachot) thanking the PBA:

    What if I told you that there was a chance you could seeJaVale McGeeandAndray Blatcheplaytogether on the hardwood one more time? Theduo that once got suspended for getting in a fight outside a D.C. clubon Christmas Eve and would probably be Shaqtin’ A Fool First-Ballot Hall of Famers if such a thing existed. If I told you they were going to get back together, how much money would you pay to see it? Twenty bucks? Five?

    Would we have to pay you to watch?
    Well, it appears like the Philippine National Team wants to give everyone another chance to watch these two play together again. You may recall after a disappointing trial run with Team USA in 2010, JaVale McGee surprised everyone when he announced his plans to become a naturalized Philippine. While the move makes some sense from a marketing perspective (he has a shoe deal with PEAK, a Chinese shoe manufacturer) it’s still not all thatcommon to see someone give up a chance of making Team USA to become the alpha dog foranother nation.
