San Mig Coffee forward Marc Pingris felt sorry for his involvement in the fight that marred the Mixers' 102-88 win over GlobalPort Batang Pier at the Cuneta Astrodome.Pingris got into a fist-fight altercation with GlobalPort's Kelly Nabong that led to their ejection in the early part of the third quarter.Pingris was so bothered after getting back into his senses especially after his five-year old son called him."Ina-accept ko yung nagawa kong pagkakamali.
Sana hindi lang ako kundi pati rin yung mga ibang players kasi hindi maganda para sa mga batang nanonood," Pingris told reporters emerging from their locker room."Tumawag nga yung 5 years old kong anak eh, si Jean-Michele. Sabi niya, 'Dad what happened? Bakit niyo sinuntok yung guy," Pingris recounted.Pingris carefully explained himself to his son and asked for forgiveness."Sorry kako, nagulat ako, nabigla ako kasi inaway niya ang teammate ko. Sabi ko don't do that to your classmates and friends. It's bad kako. So next time, ko-control-in ko sarili ko. 

Pinagalitan niya ako, akala mo siya yung tatay. 'Don't do that ha, that's bad ha' guma-ganun siya eh," Pingris said."Yes anak," was all Pingris answered after he got an earful from his five-year old son, who caught the whole action on TV at home."Minsan nangyayari talaga sa player yun. Wala eh. Kailangan talaga control-in ang emotions mo," Pingris said.

Pingris, who was part of the Gilas Pilipinas that won silver in the FIBA Asia Championship, has learned from this unfortunate incident that tainted his image."May nakuha akong aral sa game na 'to. Siguro mahal ko lang talaga mga teammates ko kaya nangyari 'yun. Nakita ko silang sinasaktan, aawat ako tapos biglang nakita kong pumorma. 

Nabigla lang talaga ako," Pingris said."Prinotektahan ko lang ang mga teammates ko. Wala eh, sa huli talaga ang pagsisisi di ba?"San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone talked to Pingris after the game and asked him to play smart next time."Nag-sorry ako kay Coach Tim after the game and sabi niya 'naiintindihan niya na prinotektahan ko lang ang mga teammates ko' but I need to be smart dahil kailangan nga nila ako," Pingris said.PBA Commissioner Chito Salud has summoned Pingris, Nabong and the other players involved in the altercation on Thursday. -

  1. I agree with Marc Pingris that you need to defend your teammate but sometimes you need to be smart on the moves you make because there are thousands of people watching you and the team needs you. The team can’t afford to wait if one of their star players is suspended.
