John Amores bares family problems that hounded him during NCAA season

For the first time since the fracas at Filoil, John Amores finally broke his silence.

Amores was given a platform through Quinito Henson and Dyan Castillejo’s Playitright TV.

There, the 6-foot-2 opened up about personal family problems that were bothering him which resulted in an outburst of emotion that caused his psyche to be affected as the NCAA season went by.

“Dala na lang din ng mga problema few days. May dinadala din pong problema, and syempre nappressure na din po na halo-halo po sa emotional hanggang sa sumabog na lang din po ako. Hindi ko po inaasahan na mangyayari siya e. Bigla din po na parang,,, bigla na lang po siya nangyari,” said Amores in the interview.

“Siguro po yung sa family ko. Yung pinaka problema nung family ko. Halo-halo na lang din po e. Tapos yung sa baby ko nga po, di ko nga po siguro [kasi] nakakasama. Kasi nung sinilang po siya, ako din po yung nakakasama niya, ako din po yung nagaalaga. Di lang din po ako nasanay na hindi siya kasama.”

It was Amores who has been taking care of his daughter since her birth. But due to a reason he did not disclose, he wasn’t able to see her child for a period of time which caused all his negative feelings.

The 23-year-old also made sure to use the opportunity that was given to him by the YouTube channel to reach out to the people so that he can finally say his long-awaited apology.

“Personally po na humihingi ako ng paumanhin, tawad sa inyo sa aking ginawa, sa aking inasal sa nangyari. Sa mga fans, sa mga fans ng [St] Benilde, sa JRU community, sa NCAA community, sa lahat ng Mancom humihingi ako ng pasensya sainyo, sa mga fans, sorry sorry sa aking nagawa,” said the Pagsanjan, Laguna native.

“Sana mabago ko na yung sarili ko, mapakita ko sainyo na kung sino yung tao na to na parang kailangan kong baguhin yung sarili ko. Pakita ko sa [inyo] na mas kaya ko maging better, mas maging maayos yung sarili ko,” he continued.

“Humihingi ako sainyo ng pasensya na sana maano niyo po, maappreciate niyo po yung pag-hingi ko ng pasensya. Hindi naman kaagad niyo ko mapapatawad, pero kahit paunti-unti [sana] mapatawad niyo ko,” he continued.

“Sana din sa mga fans na nag cocomment, wag na lang din sana idamay yung anak ko, yung family ko kasi ako lang din naman yung may kasalanan so sana ako na lang, wag na yung family ko. Yun lamang po.”

Prior to his appearance on Playitright TV, Amores went to College of St. Benilde to personally meet with the team to apologize in person.

When asked what his goals are now that he is already seeking a second chance, Amores admitted that he wanted to play in the Philippine Basketball Association but as of the moment would rather focus on himself and his ongoing therapy.

“Siguro naman po lahat ng basketball player na nasa kalagayan ko e pangarap makarating sa PBA. Syempre naman po kung ano yung pwede kong maitulong sa team, ayun naman po yung mas maging better na tao muna ako siguro na trabahuhin ko na yung sarili ko na mas maging better,” he said.
