PBA players will hustle more this season!


I saw this article from AKTV website and all I can say is that its a good change. PBA is tweaking its rules that will benefit players and will encourage more competitive plays in the PBA.  PBA  new rules , rules.. hustling!

The PBA is tweaking its rules to reward players who show hustle on the court, giving leeway for those who get on the floor for loose balls.

“It takes away the excitement when a player who hustles and dives for the loose ball will be called for a traveling, so we’re implementing a new rule to cover this,” said PBA commissioner Chito Salud.
PBA operations manager Rickie Santos went into further detail about the change.

“Before kasi kapag yung player nag-dive for the loose ball and nag-slide siya, he will be called for a traveling. This time, he won’t be called for a traveling anymore because when a player slides, wala pa naming may clear possession noon sa bola,” Santos told InterAKTV.

“But of course, when the said player stands up, he needs to dribble the ball first to avoid being called for a travelling violation,” added Santos.
