MEMBERS OF THE PBA BOARD of governors and players of the PBA selection that faced the NBA Generation squad were up in arms after getting second-class treatment from the organizers of the NBA Asia Challenge.

A PBA official who refused to be identified revealed that the number of tickets that was supposed to be allotted for members of the board and the players of the PBA selection was cut in half at the last minute?incidents which did not sit well with league officials.

Even sportswriters were miffed after being assigned seats in the Upper A section of the Araneta Coliseum, far from the action.

?It was some elementary matters which they failed to address,? a PBA official told the Inquirer before tip-off.

?You don?t need rocket-science knowledge to figure out that the PBA is the other half of the equation here and that its members should also be taken care of.?

Making matters worse: The players? tickets were scattered in different sections of the Big Dome.
