- Mac Cardona aired his thoughts about the issues of Calvin Abueva
- He also took a swipe at the indefinite suspension filed against the latter
- The former PBA star said that Calvin also has a family to support
Mark “Mac’ Cardona, a former star in Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), has decided to express his side regarding the heavy controversies that Calvin Abueva is facing.
KAMI learned that the board suspended the latter indefinitely because of the issues or violations that he committed over the weekend.
It can be remembered that Calvin hit Terrence Jones, the import of TNT, after they scuffled inside the hard court.
The said national team member also disrespected a fan inside the Mall Of Asia Arena, and he was fined 70 thousand pesos for all of his unsportsmanlike actions.
Because of this, Mac released a statement to defend his fellow basketball player and he said that the punishment on Calvin was too much.
He pointed out that the Phoenix Fuel Masters forward also has a family to support and suspending him indefinitely will certainly affect financial status.
“Buti nga si Calvin napapasaya yung PBA eh. Siya na nga lang yata halos nagpapasaya dyan at inaabangan tapos ganoon pa... Indefinite suspension, sobra naman 'yun…
“Dapat kay Commissioner (Willie Marcial), alam na agad yung ide-declare n'ya na kung ilang games si Calvin hindi makakalaro. Kasi may pamilya rin yan eh…
“Buhay ni Calvin [ang] basketball, kung hindi siya makakalaro ng ilang games, without pay yun. Nakakaawa naman…
"Si Calvin, ganun talaga maglaro 'yun. I-accept na lang natin na ganun siya maglaro, hindi talaga siya papasindak kahit sino ka pa. Ganun siya eh,” Mac quipped.
In a previous article by KAMI, Maika Rivera, the girlfriend of Ray Parks and the fan who got disrespected by Calvin, finally broke her silence.
Mark “Mac” Cardona is a professional basketball player who played for De La Salle University Green Archers during his collegiate career. He was the Finals MVP during UAAP Season 67.
