Mark Cardona reacts to issues of Calvin Abueva.
MARK CARDONA – The former PBA player Mark Cardona has this reaction to the two controversial incidents of Calvin Abueva while on-court.
Fined with P70,000.00 (P20,000.00 for the verbal altercation with a fan and for making obscene gestures, and P50,000.00 for a F2 against Terrence Jones) and an indefinite suspension was given to Calvin Abueva following his unprofessional actions as a basketball player during two consecutive games based on a previous article.
Phoenix Fuel player Abueva got involved in a verbal altercation while on-court with the girlfriend of a player from the opposition and scuffle versus Terrence Jones after he got hit by him in the groin area.
With this, former PBA player Mark Cardona has reacted to the sanctions given to Abueva. He said, “Buti nga si Calvin napapasaya yung PBA eh. Siya na nga lang yata halos nagpapasaya dyan at inaabangan tapos ganoon pa.”
He added that considering that a suspension does not have pay, he feels bad for the player as he has a family to feed. He thinks that the sanction is too hard.
“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,” Cardona said.
He further added, “Buhay ni Calvin basketball, kung hindi siya makakalaro ng ilang games, without pay yun. Nakakaawa naman. Masyado mabigat ‘yun. Hindi naman ‘yun ‘yung parang nanaksak o namaril eh, di ba? ”
The former Talk n’ Text ace wingman said that people should just accept the way Abueva plays. He stated, “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.”
