Abueva seeks clearance from GAB: ‘Kailangan bigyan ng linaw kasi vina-violate yung right niya’

Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters head coach Louie Alas shared that Calvin Abueva has already written a letter to the Games and Amusement Board explaining his side of the incident between him and Terrence Jones last month.

“Nagawa na kanina, addressed dun sa chairman ng GAB (Abraham Mitra),” disclosed Alas moments after Phoenix lost to San Miguel Beermen Wednesday night.

“Kung ano explanation niya, based on that titingnan kung anong ibibigay kay Calvin.”

Alas, though, bared he was surprised that Abueva also needed to write a letter to GAB aside from the letter he had sent to the PBA, who slapped him with an indefinite ban due to two controversial incidents he got into last June.

First was his obscene gestures to a female fan later identified as Ray Parks’ girlfriend Maika Rivera during Phoenix’s game versus Blackwater Elite, and then for hitting Jones with a clothesline when they took on TNT just two nights later.

“Kanina ko lang nalaman na sumulat pala ‘yung GAB. Kailangan din sumulat si Calvin to explain kung ano talaga ‘yung lahat ng nangyari, ‘yung sa kanila lang ni Jones. Sabi ko dapat napadala na ‘yan earlier,” the outspoken mentor said.

This adds more to the confusion felt by Alas, aside from him looking for the parameters behind the league’s decision — the PBA, though, has explained that the ruling was made to instill discipline and maintain professionalism in the league.

“Wala kasing parameters … Hindi malinaw. Sabi ko nga kapag ganun indefinite suspension, nagtanong din kasi ako sa lawyer, dapat may binibigay na parameters kung bakit mo sinusupend indefinitely,” said Alas, who’s known Abueva ever since their days with the Alaska Aces franchise.

“‘Yun lang ‘yung advice na masasabi ng lawyer. Kailangan bigyan nila ng linaw ‘yung tao kasi parang vina-violate nila ‘yung rights niya eh.”

Now, Phoenix and Abueva await for any developments that might come soon. But for Alas, he hopes to have the forward nicknamed the Beast back again, especially next conference in the season-ending 2019 Governors’ Cup.

‘Hopefully. Sana kung ‘di man ngayon, makalaro next conference.”
