ASEAN league a boost to RP basketball


The Philippines basketball chiefs believe the launching of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) is a blessing not only to Filipino players but to coaches and trainers as well.

Philippine Basketball League Commissioner Chino Trinidad and Samahang Basketball ng Pilipinas Executive Director Noli Eala say the new league will be a big boost to local basketball.

“Since we are the US team in the South East Asian region, we can see some of our players, coaches and trainers in various teams of the league. At the same time, we can help raise the level of competition in the region,” said Trinidad.
