Alaska debunks rumors: ‘We will be ready for battle’

Proud PBA franchise Alaska Aces said that it will remain in the big league for the foreseeable future.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Alaska Milk Corporation stated that it is not for sale and that it will be ready once the 45th season of the PBA resumes.

“Alaska is eager for the season to resume and will be ready for battle. And more importantly, Alaska is staying the course to show that our team will always contribute to the welfare of the league, and be part of the good to make a better world through our passion for basketball.”

Last week, rumors ran rampant that the 34-year-old squad is selling its franchise, with prospects including the likes of Chooks-to-Go.

It took a week for the company to respond. Alaska said that it is currently focusing on coping with the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“With the world currently in a pandemic, and at the same time, battling injustices and inequalities, no one needs additional stress. With leadership underperforming and questioned, and when people suffer as a result, everyone needs to be more compassionate and sensitive to one another. Our everyday lives have been altered, and a lot of questions still remain unanswered and the uncertainty of Life still creates discomfort,” the statement read.

“But opportunities to help and make a change are thriving, and we have various platforms available for us to be part of something good,” it continued.

“We are happy that our organization has always been on the side of the good. That has not changed.”

Alaska is one of the franchises in the league that has a rich history. It has won 14 crowns — the second-most for active teams.
