PBA players Marc Pingris, Kelly Nabong suspended two games; fined P60,000 each

“Sa palagay ko karapat-dapat sa akin yun (suspension and fine). Basta kung mali ka tanggapin mo, di `yung papatawarin ka lang bigla nang walang fine. Dun ka matututo kung may pagkakamali. Di lang suspension yan, may fine din yan,” says Marc Pingris about the sanction to him and other PBA player Kelly Nabong for the brawl during the PBA Governors’ Cup on Wednesday night at the Cuneta Astrodome.


THE PBA on Friday issued a total fine of P170,000 for the brawl that marred the San Mig Coffee-Globalport Governors’ Cup match earlier in the week, with Marc Pingris and Kelly Nabong both suspended for two games each.

San Mig star forward Pingris and Globalport rookie Nabong were each fined P60,000 for trading blows in Wednesday’s game won by the Mixers, 102-88.

San Mig forward Joe Devance, meanwhile, was suspended for a game and fined P30,000 for “triggering the commotion that led to the fight between Kelly Nabong and Marc Pingris.”

Globalport’s Marvin Hayes was fined P20,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct, equivalent to a flagrant foul penalty 2.
