Ricky Dandan takes over coaching duties
Just when things couldn’t get any better for the Picanto, Chris Gavina will start 2018 without a team to coach as he submitted his resignation yesterday- a move that was confirmed by Joe Lipa, the team’s general manager. Ironically, Gavina’s resignation came just two days after Kia announced that he was the team’s head coach. Was.
Gavina started as Manny Pacquiao’s deputy coach- all while the playing coach wasn’t on the court. Despite the stockpile of losses, we can’t argue with the fact that Chris Gavina did his job, leading Kia to its only playoff appearance so far back in 2016 before losing to the Meralco Bolts.
Ricky Dandan is set to take over at the helm in the next games of Kia. Will he be the permanent coach or only in an interim capacity will be something that we’ll have to wait and see.
Take a look at our last conversation with Chris Gavina
What a year it has been for the PBA.

TNT has a point
- Standhardinger submitted his application through a proxy.
- He was allowed to miss the Draft Combine regardless of the validity of the excuse.
No. It’s Totally Disrespectful
GAB REMINDS PBA OF IMPARTIALITY AND BALANCE FOR DRAFT
Lopsided trades could turn off fans
“There are complaints about the KIA-SMB deal and we are intently observing. How the PBA will handle it will determine if the next season will excite or turn off fans,” says Mitra.
“We would like to have a balance between all teams which would help competitiveness and boost sales. We want more teams to grow their fan base. Fans troop to games with star players. The danger of declining ticket sales becomes real when stars are concentrated in only a few teams, ” added Mitra.
“KIA, Blackwater, Global port and Phoenix seem to need more stars in their team to be able to compete with the others. As in the past, lopsided matches affect public interest, gate receipts and revenues to the government. The yearly draft is normally an opportunity for weaker teams to get better players to hopefully even up the games.”
“We hope the coming draft will give teams with lower winning records the fair chance to equalize themselves with the others,” he added.

Kia to Trade Top Pick to SMB for Players and Cash, and it must be a lot of cash!
When Money is more important than winning
They must really like this player.
Christian Standhardinger Could be Traded. Soon.
On the other side of the fence, keeping Standhardinger will also benefit Kia especially with players like Nico Elorde, Eric Camson and even Rey Guevarra starting to produce good numbers on some of the games and that’s one proof that the system of Chris Gavina is already clicking. Slowly but surely. That is.
