The Leo, Ginebra, and TNT open 44th PBA season
The first game of the new year will feature Ginebra and TNT, an early test for both teams as they look to establish themselves as viable challengers to San Miguel Beer, the team that has won the season-opening joust for four straight years.

The PBA is back in action.

Sunday marks the official opening of the league’s 44th season and the PBA packed a lot of things at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.

The first game of the new year will feature Ginebra and TNT, an early test for both teams as they look to establish themselves as viable challengers to San Miguel Beer, the team that has won the season-opening joust for four straight years.

But before the Gin Kings and the KaTropa take the court, the annual parade takes center stage with all 12 teams and their muses present.

Former Ms. Universve Pia Wurtzbach and Mega Star Sharon Cuneta easily lead the list of muses.

But even before the actual opening ceremony for the PBA’s 44th season, season 43 comes to a true formal close with the Leo Awards.

Last season’s Most Valuable Player, as well as the Mythical Teams, will be presented.
