Despite Calvin Abueva’s post-game comment, moments after Alaska bowed out of the PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals, the Office of the Commissioner isn’t inclined at penalizing the “Beast”.

PBA communications and external affairs director Willy Marcial said they found nothing wrong with Abueva’s post-game comment, in which the Alaska forward told media men after the game: “Siyempre alam naman natin na malakas ‘yung kalaban, malakas pati sa taas. Wala na tayong magagawa.”

Marcial said the 6-foot-1 Alaska wingman’s comment can have so many meanings.

“Wala naman sinabi si Abueva tungkol sa referees or kay comm (Narvasa). At yung tulong sa itaas, puwede yun sa sino man na kataas-taasan. Puwede rin naman yung taas eh yung Diyos mismo, so mukhang di ifa-fine ito,” Marcial told FOX Sports on Wednesday. “Wala naman kasing incriminating na sinabi sa PBA.” – FOX Sports Asia
