GlobalPort Batang Pier, Newest team in PBA!

GlobalPort Batang Pier

The GlobalPort Batang Pier is a Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) team that will debut on the 2012–13 PBA season. The team took over the franchise of the Powerade Tigers in 2012 after it was sold to Sultan 900 Capital, Inc. Besides GlobalPort, team owner Mikee Romero also owns the AirAsia Philippine Patriots of the ASEAN Basketball League. On July 30, 2012, Coca-Cola Bottlers Philippines, Inc. announced that their PBA team, the Powerade Tigers, was sold to Sultan 900, Inc. which is owned and represented by its chairman and CEO Michael Romero. The Board of Governors unanimously approved the purchase on a special board meeting on August 17.

GlobalPort Batang Pier a new name with the same old PBA players. GlobalPort Batang Pier was able to maintain most of its core players from the orginal team like Gary David and JV Casio. Welcome to the PBA, Global Port Batang Pier. 

When will PBA really add a new team and not just replace an old one. maybe they should add 2 more teams to give the ever growing basketball professionals more chance to play in the PBA.
