Nash-proof walls? Racela "reacts" to Big Dome's new hallway partitions

Coach Nash Racela saw the black partitions at the Araneta Coliseum separating the two locker rooms and he had a reaction post that is worthy of the 100 emoji.
In a surprise development, black plywood partitions have been installed at the Araneta Coliseum hallway, separating the locker rooms in the historic sports arena.
The partitions made their debuts Friday during Game 4 of the 2017 PBA Governors' Cup Finals between defending champion Brgy. Ginebra and Meralco.
Now the reasons why the partitions are there remains a mystery as of right now but it can be safe to say that they were installed to avoid any untoward incidents involving teams that are in a heated game.
Or something close to that nature.
On Saturday, during UAAP Season 80 action, former FEU head coach and current TNT mentor Nash Racela was on deck at the Big Dome to watch the Tamaraws who are now handled by his older brother Olsen.
Coach Nash saw the black partitions and he had a reaction post that is worthy of the 100 emoji.
For those that didn't know, Racela was recently involved in an incident with Ginebra governor Alfrancis Chua.
It all went down during Game 3 of the semifinal series between the Gin Kings and the KaTropa as both men were involved in a shouting incident that went from the court all the way to the hallway of the Araneta Coliseum.
The PBA has since made some adjustments to its rules during team exits at halftime and end of games to avoid similar incidents.
But in true heel Nash fashion, it seems like the TNT mentor always has something else in mind.
