Calvin Abueva made true on his promise to visit Ronald Pascual. And he brought a good friend with him.
Ian Sangalang completed the Pinatubo Trio reunion on Sunday to show their support for the down Pascual.
“Gusto niya bumalik sa paglalaro. As of now wala pa kong magawa. Pero ang sabi ko naman sa kanya after ko dito, magkikita kami as a friend, as a brother, para makakuha naman siya ng konting advice kahit papaano,” Abueva told reporter inside the PBA bubble the day he left Quest Hotel last Saturday.
Sangalang, on the other hand, left the bubble last November 15.
The 32-year-old Pascual has been battling depression, thinking that he is a shell of his former self.
The third overall pick in the 2014 PBA Draft last played in the PBA back in 2018.
His brother Ronnel had made pleas to Ronald to return home to Mexico, Pampanga after learning that he has been moving from one house to another over the past few months.
The trio of Pascual, Abueva, and Sangalang created magic together in San Sebastian, carrying the school to the NCAA Season 85 championship — the college’s 12th overall.
And now, they look to create magic together — off of the court.
