“Masakit, pero okay naman.” — Paul Lee said after once again losing a tooth in a PBA game.
Paul Lee is pretty unlucky with his tooth.
Lee chipped his tooth for the second time in four years in the PBA, with the latest one Friday in the Governors’ Cup against San Miguel Beer.
With less than three minutes to go, Lee went up for a layup and that challenged by San Miguel import Dez Wells.
There was body-to-body contact and Lee went down the floor hard, eventually losing his tooth after landing face first. No foul was called.
“Masakit, pero okay naman,” Lee said after.
“Part of the game. That’s it,” he added.
Lee confirmed that his tooth that got chipped this time is the same one from 2015 in a separate incident that also involved an opposing team's import.
Four years ago back when he was still with Rain or Shine, Lee got elbowed by Ivan Johnson, causing him to lose his tooth originally.
“Yeah, yung old pa rin pero okay lang,” Lee said.
“Okay naman, medyo dizzy lang nung una. Dentist lang ulit, balik na ulit sa dati,” he added.
