Mac Belo admits weird feeling seeing former FEU coach Nash Racela on the opponent’s side

Together for almost five years, Mac Belo admits it was a weird feeling seeing coach Nash Racela on the other side when Blackwater played TNT on Friday.

“I’m used to having him always on my side,” the prized rookie said as his partnership with Racela dates back from their days in Far Eastern University, Phoenix in the PBA D-League, and even in the international stage as a part of the Gilas cadets. “He coached me for so long so he knows my game and my tendencies.”

Belo also admitted that there were times where he would look at Racela to get instructions before stopping himself midway and realizing that they’re already on different teams.

“I’m waiting for him to direct me to a play. Then, I just catch myself thinking we’re already opponents,” he said. –
