Caidic appointed Pilipinas Super League commissioner
MANILA, Philippines – After Marc Pinrgis and Leo Isaac, another former Philippine Basketball Association legend is set to take over the role as commissioner of the Pilipinas Super League.
“The Trigger Man” Allab Caidic has been handpicked by PSL president Cris Bautista, who formalized the appointment of the record-holder for most number of three-point shots in a single game in the PBA.
“He’s a man of integrity. If you take a look at the past commissioners of the PSL, from Marc Pingris to Leo Isaac to Allan Caidic, they’re not just former PBA stars, but they’ve never been involved in controversies,” said Bautsta.
A member of the PBA’s 25 Greatest and 40 Greatest players, Caidic was also a five-time league champion, five-time scoring champion and for many years, held the record for the most number of three-point shots with 1,242, which was overtaken by Jimmy Alapag in 2016 (1,250).
Caidic, however, remains as the record holder for most number of three-point shots in a single game with 17 and most points made by a local player (79).
The new season of the PSL begins on November 9 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum with nine teams already confirming participation.
Among the squads competing are Quezon Titans, San Juan Kings-Go For Gold, Davao Occidental Tigers-Cocolife, Royce Hotel and Casino, Manila City Stars, and V-Works Bagong Kalibo Ati-Atihan, Alpha Omega Kings, Makati Circus Music Festival, and Cainta NKT Sniper.
PSL is also about to wrap up its Under-21 Tournament as San Juan Kings-Go For Gold and Ner Era Hunters vie for the best-of-three championship series beginning Thursday.
