Japeth Aguilar, Adrian Wong fined P20K for breaking GCQ protocols

PBA pros Japeth Aguilar and Adrian Wong have been slapped with PHP 20,000 fines and were also told to undergo swab tests and 30 hours of community service.

This, after being caught on video playing in a five-on-five game at Ronac Gym in San Juan City last Wednesday. Five-on-five games have yet to be allowed by the Inter-agency Task Force in areas under modified community quarantine.

On the other hand, Isaac Go, who was drafted by Columbian but is locked with Gilas, has also apologized.

“‘Yung kay Japeth at si Wong pinatawag ko, pero si Isaac technically nasa atin pa rin. Sabi ko kay Isaac, hindi kita papatawag pero inadvisan ko siya na mag-ingat at huwag ka muna maglaro ng five-on-five o scrimmages hanggang wala pang go-signal ang Task Force,” said PBA commissioner Willie Marcial.

“Dapat kasi maging modelo din sila lalo na sa kabataan.”

The video, which has since made the rounds on social media, also had collegiate standouts play alongside Japan-bound Thirdy Ravena.

Ravena has since apologized for inviting the players as well.

The group has been working under Jolo Tamayo of True Focus basketball.
