    Jinggoy denies SBP deal, wants presidency
    By Marvin Sy
    The Philippine Star 11/07/2006

    Sen. Jinggoy Estrada denied yesterday that he had accepted the post of chairman of the Samahang Basketball ng Pilipinas, the proposed new cage body that would replace the Basketball Association of the Philippines.

    In an interview, Estrada said that he has not been approached by any party to discuss the issue of leadership in the SBP.

    It has been reported that Estrada has supposedly agreed to chair the new cage body while Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. chairman Manuel Pangilinan would serve as its president.

    According to Estrada, he is willing to talk with all of the concerned parties but no one has formally approached him for a meeting.

    He did admit that there were informal talks held last week with the emissaries of Pangilinan but no agreement was reached.

    Estrada arrived last Monday from a trip to the United States but he said that Pangilinan has not been available for a meeting.

    The senator pointed out that he wants to have control of the operations of the cage body, which he said the chairman does not have.

    He explained that the chairman is a mere ceremonial figure and the president is the one that calls the shots.

    Estrada is currently the head of the BAP, the cage body expelled by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) but recognized by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA).

    The Philippines has been suspended by the FIBA from its tournaments after the leadership crisis broke out in the aftermath of the BAP expulsion and the formation of Pilipinas Basketball as the country’s new cage body.

    The SBP was created last September to eventually take the place of the BAP and PB as the rightful basketball association in the country and at the same time forge lasting peace and unity in the sport.

    There had been talks that with SBP at the helm, the FIBA might soon lift the suspension it slapped on the Philippines at the height of the basketball crisis last year.

    But with Estrada’s denial and firm stand that the BAP must be the one to call the shots, the road to cage unity remains to be bumpy as ever.

    "They need the BAP. We don’t need them," Estrada said.

    There should be a condition for anyone wanting to head a sport body. Clue color is gold.


    Edit anyone who can't produce = instant resignation.
