Allado apologizes to Salud and the PBA
MANILA, Philippines - About 12 hours after he accused the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) of game-fixing on Twitter, Barako Bull's Don Allado apologized also through the social media site.
On Wednesday, July 4, Allado tweeted an apology a few hours after he deleted previous tweets and following a press conference by PBA Commissioner Chito Salud wherein he condemned Allado's actions.
"I would like to extend my sincerest apologies to Comm Salud & entire PBA for last night's tweets that's now a subject of controversy. It was an error in judgement on my part to let my passion for this game get the best of me," Allado posted on his account.
"As a professional I should've known better. I understand my statement may be construed by many as discrediting the PBA. Let it be known, however, that such is not my intention. Again, my sincerest apologies to the Comm Salud, Board of Governors & entire PBA."
Allado is scheduled to meet with Salud Thursday, July 5, about the claims he made on the social media site.
Salud said Allado is likely to get sanctioned for his actions -- specifically for making public statements about the league which is prohibitted by the PBA constitution -- and said he wants to hear Allado's evidence, if any. - Rappler.com
