For some, the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft is the biggest day of an aspirant’s life. However, there are some things more important.

Projected top three pick Bobby Ray Parks, Jr. and 6-foot-5 forward Kris Porter have already notified PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial that they cannot attend the Draft Ceremonies on Sunday at the Robinson’s Place Midtown in Ermita, Manila.

Last Sunday, Parks had a dilemma over whether he would attend the draft festivities or travel with club team San Miguel Alab Pilipinas in their road game against the CLS Knights in Surabaya, Indonesia.

“It’s my coach’s and my team agent’s-slash-team owner’s decision where I’ll be next Sunday,” he shared after Alab’s 94-67 win over CLS in Laguna.

Apparently, his team has decided that he is needed for that game.

For his part, Porter, a one-time UAAP Men’s Basketball champion with the Ateneo Blue Eagles, will attend his parents’ wedding.

“Siyempre, magulang niya yun eh. Sabi ko, puwedeng puwede!” shared Marcial.
