Divided on Chito Narvasa's Fate: SMC, Kia and Global Port Want him to Stay as PBA Commissioner

San Miguel Beermen, Barangay Ginebra, Star Hotshots, Kia Picanto and Global Port wants Chito Narvasa to stay as PBA Commissioner. 

Five teams appeared beside Chito Narvasa in a press conference in response to the latest press release that the assumed majority bloc of the PBA announced earlier today.

According to incoming Chairman Mon Fernandez, they are no longer supporting the extension of  Chito Narvasa as commissioner due to lack of confidence.  (See story here)

Teams Supporting Chito Narvasa

San Miguel Beermen Governor Robert Non speaks before the media.

“They cannot just act on a whim. What they are doing is not in accordance with our by-laws and constitution. All five teams – San Miguel, Ginebra, Star, Kia and Globalport – stand behind Commissioner Narvasa. He enjoys our full support and we have prevailed upon him to stay and do what is right,”

The group reiterated that the meeting today was not properly announced on time and any move moving forward is not allowed. Robert Non also mentioned that the earlier announcement can't be valid as it requires two-thirds of the league's board to make it official.

In this case they still need one more.

Narvasa addresses trade concern

Narvasa said that the board has the power to review, modify or reverse any decision by the commissioner on any trade within 10 days. He wonders why no team didn't do it in the case of SMB and Kia trade.

Narvasa, who is now the center of attention also said that he was thinking about resigning but was prevailed upon by friends to stay. He mentioned that he is willing to resign but the rules and procedures should be followed.

PBA Balance of Power

There is certainly some disturbance in the PBA and we can only hope that both parties can find an amicable resolution for the sake of Filipino basketball fans.
