Mahindra coach Chris Gavina, one of the soft-spoken mentors in the PBA came out spewing fire, moments after emerging from Mahindra’s dugout following the team’s 92-98 loss to unbeaten Alaska on Wednesday in their PBA Commissioner’s Cup clash.
And Gavina reserved much of his post-game chat with media men on Mahindra’s do-it-all guard Alex Mallari, who the Fil-American coach felt played out of character with his constant complaining to game officials.
Gavina’s disappointment was evident when he decided to pull Mallari out of the game for good, with still 7:56 mark left in the third quarter.
The Floodbuster made their last-gasp run without the left-handed Fil-American playmaker.
“We have too many cry babies right now,” he added. “You just got to man up, move to the next plate, and make the right plays next time and don’t lull about the calls you thought you deserve.” – FOX Sports Asia
