In one breathtaking incident on Saturday’s out-of-town game, Josh Davis fell hard to the floor and couldn’t get up. He had to be stretchered out of the hard court all the way to the locker room.
June Mar Fajardo, a fierce competitor inside the court but a gentle giant as well, was terrified to see the import lying and grimacing in pain. He faked a shot when Davis went up in the air and lost his balance on the way down.
The reigning Most Valuable Player showed signs of concern to his fellow player, whose future remains uncertain.
“Nag-sign of the cross ako kasi ayaw kong mangyari yun sa kapwa kong player. Gusto ko siyang tulungan pero hindi ko alam gagawin ko,” Fajardo said in a text message sent to media. “Ayaw kong may nasasaktan na kapwa player. Hindi ko rin ugaling manakit kasi hindi lang naman kami maapektuhan nun pati pamilya namin.”
Fajardo was relieved when he saw Davis back on the Meralco bench during second half. He quickly went to the Meralco bench and apologized to the import and the coaching staff. “Sana lang maging OK siya,” added Fajardo.
