Barako Bull center Don Allado apologized for his controversial comments on Twitter.
“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,” wrote Allado late Wednesday night.
“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 created controversy on Twitter shortly after his team’s loss 99-93 to the Powerade Tigers in a knockout match on Tuesday night.
“PBA games are fixed. They control who is in & who is out. It’s a disgrace to be in this league,” wrote Allado.
Allado’s tweets received a strong rebuke from PBA commissioner Chito Salud.
“These accusations that games are fixed, that we control who goes into the semis/finals/eventual champion are baseless and unfounded it came from someone who has lost his mind and a sore loser,” said Salud.
