PBA Commissioner Atty. Chito Salud:
With due and respectful notice to our team owners and board of governors, I have decided to step down and relinquish my position as PBA commissioner at the end of this season. After five years as commissioner, I believe the time is right to pass the baton to a
new and fresh leadership, a fresh face with afresh voice and fresh ideas that will take the league to greater heights. There will be a proper time to acknowledge the members of the PBA family and o ur friends in media whose selfless and generous support i shall always be grateful for. In the meantime, we remain focused on our task of running the league and constantly improving the quality of games we deliver to our fans.
