PBA pays tribute to fallen ex-pro Joey Mente

The PBA paid tribute to former pro Joey Mente, who passed away Wednesday morning due to cancer at age 42. The league held a moment of silence and a final buzzer shortly before the NLEX-Magnolia tussle at the Big Dome for the former Iloilo Megavolt, San Miguel Beerman, and Welcoat Dragon. PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial remembered Mente as a lively and jovial personality, whose infectious energy poured in and out of the court. "Nakakalungkot kasi masayahin tao yun eh. Pag nakakasama namin sa game out of town mahilig kumanta, masayahing tao nakakalungkot sinapit niya ganung kalagayan." He also share fond memories of Mente's entertaining play on the court, whose hustle and athleticism captivated the audience. Several of Mente's peers also paid tribute to him on social media, including Jimmy Alapag and veteran big man Don Allado. #RIPJoeyMente My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones…🙏 #PBAFamily — Jimmy Alapag (@JAlapag3) August 22, 2018 Rest in paradise Joey Ments. It will always be memorable for me competing against you. Your flare & sportsmanship helped pave the way for others. #ripjoeymente — Don C Allado (@alotofDON) August 22, 2018 Mente, who stood at 5-foot-9 won the 2001 Slam Dunk Contest, winning the audience over with his sheer athleticism, as his small stature did not hinder him from delivering thunderous dunks. The guard played for four seasons with San Miguel from 2001-05, and skipped the following season. He returned to action for Welcoat, playing three seasons there from 2006-08. Per PBA chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III, Mente played 208 games for his PBA career, and averaged 4.9 points per game, 1.5 rebounds per game, and 1.5 assists per game.   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
