|PBA Finals Presscon|
The Philippines is a close family ties country. We are very much family oriented. We even live with our parents even as we become older. It's every parents desire to have a peaceful and loving home and seeing a sibling fight is the last thing they want to see happen in the family.
Ginebra and SMB are sisters in the PBA for a long time. This upcoming 2017 All Filipino - Philippine Cup Finals however, we will see a start of a sister rivalry.
It's been a while since we last saw these two teams in the finals and having both of them compete against each other would be thrilling. I guess this is the only fight a parent would be happy to see. And regardless, it's a win-win situation for their Mother Company.
But what do the players think about the 2017 Philippine Cup Finals series?
