Guiao calls Johnson a ‘danger to other players’



Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao is clearly not a fan of Talk ‘N Text import Ivan Johnson’s ragged style of play and even said after the Elasto Painters dominated the Tropang Texters in a highly-physical Game 3 encounter that the import poses a threat to other players in the league because of his roughness.

“Yung import (Johnson) is doing what he wants with impunity and in the game he wasn’t even warned,” Guiao claimed.

“Siniko niya sa mukha si Paul (Lee). Lahat ng dumepensa sa kanya sinasagasaan niya but they are just regular fouls. He is a danger to the other players.”

Johnson rammed into Paul Lee as he drove to the basket and in the process hit Lee’s mouth with his right elbow. Lee went down and lost a tooth while bleeding profusely.

Guiao added he feels Johnson has “mental and emotional issues” and unless he solves those, Rain or Shine will have an advantage in the series.

“He’s been troubled everywhere he’s gone. Meron siyang mga mental and emotional issues. I think he has the manage them a little better,” Guiao added.

“We cannot be distracted by what he is doing. We will just let him settle his own issues and we will focus on winning the series.”

The Elasto Painters mentor also went back to the issue of consistency, stating the officials should do a better job of calling the game.

“Why can one team be more physical than the other and the referees don’t call them consistently. Okay lang kung pisikal parehas pero kung ikaw pinipisikal pero di ka makapiskal, yun ang mahirap,” he said.
