SBP president Al Panlilio:

"After 10 years, we felt it was timely to refresh the SBP logo to give it a new look,"

"The bolder look signifies strength and our disciplined direction."

"It is more than a face lift,"

"Combined with the restructuring that we are doing, we will continue to find ways to bring the SBP to greater heights."

"The restructuring was proposed because we wanted to minimize confusion and ensure that we are headed towards the right direction,"

"There are clear cut deliverables and accountability among each individual."

"Yung Philippine eagle is still there, but yung rendition niya is quite different, with an emerging basketball, showing our love for the game obviously. And the italicize font illustrates the ball motion towards a bright future for the sport." said the SBP president.
