After creating quite a controversy in the country’s basketball community, Don Allado posted an apology to Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner Chito Salud and the whole of PBA.
“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. 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 of the team Barako Bull Energy said that his passion for basketball took the best of him last night when he posted the controversial messages that accused PBA of game-fixing.
“I'm the guy that says what others can't. games are fixed. They control who is in & who is out. It's a disgrace to be in this league," he tweeted last night after losing in the game.
“In my opinion, this league has little credibility left,” he added.
He posted those messages after his team lost to Powerade Tigers in a do-or-die game.
Salud, on the other hand, denied the allegations and said he wanted to talk to Allado and ask for evidences to his claims. The two are scheduled to meet tomorrow.
