Narvasa has no doubt title series between Ginebra and Meralco is a classic in the making

October 10, 2017

PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa foresees a series that will be a great treat to the fans as Barangay Ginebra and Meralco clash in a PBA Governors Cup title rematch starting Friday at the Quezon Convention Center in Lucena.

"I'm glad to be part of this finale. You can feel the energy. I never felt this before," said Narvasa, sitting in the middle of the two teams facing the sports media in a pre-finals press conference at Sambokojin Restaurant in Eastwood City Tuesday.

"You see the best of the best today -- two great teams in a historical moment. This is a sequel, and I'm sure they will figure in a great battle," said Narvasa, anticipating a long, grind-out playoff duel.

He's excited with the showdown between the two teams on the floor and the coaching duel between grandslam-winning coaches Tim Cone and Norman Black.

"The coaches will not sleep for two weeks. They will try to outthink and outplay each other," said Narvasa.

It's a best-of-seven series with Games Two to Four set at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Games Five to Seven, if necessary, will be at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue.

The Gin Kings are the defending the crown that they won over the Bolts in six games last year.
