The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup is a tournament that does not allow teams to hire foreign players or imports. Prior to 2004–05 season, the tournament was then known as the PBA All-Filipino Cup. The Philippine Cup is considered the most prestigious tournament in a PBA season.
The current defending champions of the Philippine Cup are the San Miguel Beermen.
Since the 2006–07 season, the Jun Bernardino Trophy were awarded to the champions. The trophy is worth PHP ₱500,000 and made up of 24-karat gold plate, in which the champions can keep for a year. After that, they will receive a smaller replica of the trophy. If a team wins three consecutive tournaments, the franchise gets to keep the trophy and not the replica. The trophy is named after former PBA commissioner Jun Bernardino.
In the history of the league, only the Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters were able to win the All-Filipino conference three consecutive times in a yearly succession (2010–11, 2011–12, 2012–13). By achieving this distinction, the Tropang Texters also became the first team to be given permanent possession of the Bernardino Trophy. The second version of the Jun Bernardino Trophy is currently with the San Miguel Beermen.
The 1975 and 1976 editions of the tournament were reclassified as an import-laden conference since the league gave the lower ranking teams the option of hiring imports. The first tournament that prohibited teams of having foreign players (imports) was held in 1977.
The 1981 and 1982 seasons did not have an All-Filipino Conference.
