PBA: NLEX deserves to be disrespected, says Yeng Guiao

Despite struggling to deliver the message, NLEX coach Yeng Guiao was still able to manage to send out a cry for help. The Road Warriors have been trampled in their past two outings. They have lost their three maiden games of the Commissioner's Cup, the most recent being a 106-90 loss to the Meralco Bolts, Friday evening at the Araneta Coliseum.  Chris Newsome had been torching the team up until the final seconds, when the former Ateneo guard managed to hit a layup with two seconds left to seal the deal for Meralco and finish with a game-high 30 points.  READ MORE: PBA: Black does not care if your feelings get hurt over the quotient rule With the unnecessary last-second basket pushing Guiao to his boiling point, the veteran coach confronted the Meralco guard at the Big Dome tunnel after the Bolts' commanding win.  While Newsome was just after the quotient rule, a standard used in all FIBA-sanctioned competitions around the world, Guiao said that it was more of a surprise not because how it was was done, but who did the act. "It's still disrespect, ano? Sa akin kasi, it was totally unnecessary at that point. Alam ko namang may quotient pero that's more than enough quotient for them. At the same time, I did not expect it from Newsome," a raspy Guiao said after the game. He added that he never thought Newsome could do such a thing, but then again the Norman Black-mentored guard is just following protocol.  Now engulfed in an 0-3 hole, Guiao offered no euphemisms nor takeaways for his team's disappointing start. "...[T]he way we played, we probably deserved to be disrespected. Sama ng laro namin. We couldn't really get or find our offense. We've been struggling so far." If things don't progress for the squad that took the Magnolia Hotshots to six games in the recently-concluded Philippine Cup Semifinals, the veteran coach says it might be time to wave the white flag and move on to the Governors' Cup. "We've been making progress steadily. And then we come to this. It's not what we expected but we just have to go back and evaluate where we've been going wrong."   --   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.   .....»»
