The ePhilippine Basketball Association (ePBA) is a professional basketball league in the Philippines composed of mostly company-branded franchised teams. Scorinator is a program that is used by the league administrators to simulate the results. The games are facilitated by Commissioner Boy Pick Up and Assistant Commissioner Vincenzo Roque.

Formation

The ePhilippine Basketball Association was first suggested in the ePhilippine Forums by Boy Pick Up on March 2, 2013. Vincenzo Roque then studied how to use scorinators so that they could simulate the games. A lot of test runs of seasons were created and finally the ePhilippine Basketball Association was stable enough and can be introduced to the nation. [1]

After almost two weeks of preparation, the league was introduced to the eWorld and was open for applications. Many suggested to use a fantasy sports league website but they insisted that the scorinator was the better choice to keep the league fast paced. The league published a sign-up article every two days until March 31, 2013. [2]

Teams

The teams in the league are owned by players who were approved by the Commissioner after they fill up the application form given by the league. Their team names have a variety, from brand names to cities and countries and to even food and political ideologies, they used it. In that way, their teams showed uniqueness and so that they can be easily distinguished. [3]
