Calvin Abueva took to social media platform Instagram Saturday morning to issue a public apology three months after being slapped with an indefinite suspension by the PBA.
The Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters star forward is still serving the said suspension, which he got from two separate incidents in the early goings of the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup.
First was due to his alleged lewd gestures toward Blackwater Elite rookie Ray Parks’ girlfriend Maika Rivera, followed by his clothesline hit on TNT KaTropa import Terrence Jones.
“Ako po ay humihingi ng paumanhin para sa mga nagawa ko po sa PBA, at sa Talk N Text fans, Phoenix Fuel Masters management at sa Phoenix fans, at lalo na po sa board of governors, kay Commissioner Willie Marcial, kay Bobby Ray Parks at Maika Rivera, and then sa PBA family,” Abueva said.
“Ako po ay humihingi ng dispensa sa mga nagawa ko po. Pagpapatuloy ko po yung mga nasimulan ko. Sana po mapagbigyan niyo pa po ako. Salamat po.”
This apology by the forward nicknamed the Beast is definitely something that the league welcomes. But the question remains: will this be enough for him to be reinstated in the league?
Abueva has actually been allowed by commissioner Willie Marcial to take part in practices as the San Sebastian product asked if he can do so just so he could stay in shape.
Abueva has also been active with league-related activities. Just recently, he was with the Fuel Masters when they held an open practice at the Technological Institute of the Philippines in Manila.
