Health comes first before practice for PBA coaches


PBA coaches are in unison with the announcement that Metro Manila will be under modified enhanced community quarantine (MGCQ), even if it will delay the league’s return to practice.

PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial was supposed to resume trainings around second week of August, but the players and coaching staffs have to wait for two weeks.
“The delays are for the good of the people,” said Alaska coach Jeff Cariaso. “The rising number of cases are very alarming. Safety for all is still our No. 1 priority.”

As much as the coaches and players are ready to return to their respective teams, the health and safety should come first this pandemic.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to work, but I think we just have to trust our leaders and follow their direction,” Meralco coach Norman Black shared. “I’m sure they have everybody’s best interest in mind.”
