PBA: Balkman s birthday celebration is postponed for now

Renaldo Balkman has never beaten Alaska until now. As the defending champion Beermen rolled past the Aces Saturday to start the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals, Balkman finally had his breakthrough win. But none of that is important now as Renaldo has some bigger things to look forward to in his comeback PBA stint. More than anything, Balkman wants to win the title he never got five years ago. "Tonight, we won. We’re not looking to the past. We’re looking to the future. We got two more left," Balkman said. "Back in the gym tomorrow and practice, working hard for Game 2 on Monday," he added. Saturday is doubly special for Balk as he celebrated his 34th birthday. He wished that a championship came as a guft but he'll settle for one win for now. "It's always good when you get the win and celebrate your birthday at the same time. I wish it was a championship that we won on my birthday. But we got a long series left. We got two more left. Next game on Monday," he said. The celebration will be postponed as well as Balkman is looking forward to rest up and prepare for the semis grind again. "We just won a game, go back home, get some rest, and get back on Monday. I’m not young anymore so I’ll get my rest," he said. "I’ll save my celebration later this year when I get a couple days off, when I’m not playing basketball. What counts right now is winning a championship. Everybody says happy birthday to me, great win for us and it’s a great day for me," Balkman added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
