With the economy challenged, plus the tempting alternative offered by the Japanese league, the PBA could end up losing its top players. It needs to be aggressive and dynamic, so that it becomes a popular draw once again.
The greatest take-away from the resumption of the games is no longer about basketball. Its meaning, its very significance has transcended the game itself. The NBA has demonstrated it is capable of becoming bigger than basketball. More than the entertainment value it provides, the Restart offers a venue to promote safety protocols amid this pandemic. It provides a vehicle to promote social reforms. It provides an inspiration to the world, that by standing together, we can overcome all adversities.
