Questions to be Answered in the New PBA Season

Fans will finally get the answers once the season kicks off next week

With the originally scheduled opening of the PBA's 43rd season just 6 days away, fans are a bit worried. Why?

Here's why:

There's no official statement that is released just yet with regards to the status of PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa- whether he will stay on as the commissioner or not. The last thing we heard about the Chito Narvasa Saga was that the SMC Group, along with their allies, failed to show up in the board meeting that would have allowed both sides to settle this issue, once and for all. 

Even though outgoing PBA Chairman Mikee Romero has already stated a few weeks ago that the issue surrounding the commissioner would be settled before the season opens on the 17th, we haven't received anything official- just yet. 

Which brings us to the first question that needs to be answered ASAP:


Who will be the PBA Commissioner come December 17, 2017?

While Chito Narvasa is still the commissioner as far as the 5 teams that have been backing him are concerned, the 7 teams that wanted him out of the picture would have Rickie Santos as officer-in-charge until such time that a commissioner gets 8 votes from the 12 teams. 

Technically, Chito Narvasa is still the PBA commissioner- for now. That's because if you are to look at the rules, 8 votes are needed to either remove or retain a commissioner and so far, it's technically and figuratively a stalemate. 


Will San Miguel win a Grand Slam this time?

Possibly. If the Beermen can figure out the  Ginebra problem, a problem which ended their chances at a rare Grand Slam last season. 

But talent-wise, a Grand Slam for the Beermnen is more than possible than ever because of the fact that they will have Christian Standhardinger who is expected to suit up upon the completion of his stint in the ABL. Plus, the Beermen's best starting unit remains intact headed by 4-time MVP, June Mar Fajardo. 


Who will win the Rookie of the Year?

This year's draft class is filled with talent, probably one of the most talented draft class in recent memory. So the race for the Rookie of the Year will be tight. Here's the catchy part: Christian Standhardinger will miss the Philippine Cup so that's a big blow for his chances which means guys like Kiefer Ravena, Jeron Teng and even Reymar Jose are the probable candidate for the ROY. 

Conclusion

Will the season start as scheduled? There's no word that there'll be a move so yes, the PBA will be back on December 17, 2017. The commissioner? Grand Slam? ROY? We'll sure get the answers. Eventually.
