Calvin Abueva has sent another letter addressed this time to the Games and Amusements board after the latter asked the Phoenix forward to explain his side on the incident between him and TNT import Terrence Jones, head coach Louie Alas bared the news on Wednesday.
Abueva was indefinitely suspended by the league after clotheslining Jones during their eliminations game at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
Prior to the GAB's request, the Philippine Basketball Association has also asked Abueva to write a letter addressed to the league to explain his side.
"Sabi nila magbigay ng letter (sa PBA), ginawa naman ni Calvin, two weeks na ata 'yon. Ngayon ko lang nalaman na sumulat pala yung GAB, kailangan din daw sumulat si Calvin, i-explain kung ano talaga yung lahat ng pangyayari yung sa kanila lang ni Jones," said Alas.
However, it's still unclear whether Abueva's suspension will be lifted after complying to the GABms and the PBA's request.
"Wala kaming magagawa dun, kahit anong gawin namin, kahit na lumuhod kami sila pa rin. 'Yon lang, basta's sabi sumulat, sumulat naman si Calvin tapos kahapon lang nalaman namin na kailangan pa rin palang sumulat sa GAB. Wala kasing parameters kung anong gagawin, hindi malinaw," rued Alas.
The veteran coach, who have known Abueva ever since the Aces drafted the Beast in 2012, is also seeking for more clarification regarding Abueva's case as he hopes to welcome Abueva back in time for the playoffs
"Sabi ko nga, pag ganung may indefinite suspension ka, nagtanong rin kasi ako sa lawyer eh, dapat may binibigay ka raw na parameters kung bakit mo sinususpinde indefinitely. 'Yon yung advise sabi ng lawyer, kailangan lang bigyan ng linaw yung tao kasi parang bina-violate nila yung rights nya eh," explained Alas.
"Sabi ko, dapat napadala na nila yan earlier kasi papasok tayo sa playoffs, at least si Calvin nakapractice na sa atin. Eh ngayon, kahit ma-reinstate siya, yung katawan niya kundisyon, pero di siya game shape. Pero okay pa rin yun kasi extra warm body pa rin yun eh," Alas further explained.
