No more shenanigans against opposing players says Pogoy. (PBA)
Hopefully, RR Pogoy has learned his lesson for good.
In Game 2 of the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals against Meralco, RR Pogoy scored a grand total of zero points in a 20-point blowout.
He also pretty much caused a scuffle early in the game after Meralco guard Baser Amer finally took offense to his apparent pinching.
“Kaharutan ko lang eh. Siguro nung Game 2, ayaw ata ni Lord ng mga ganun so pumangit laro ko,” Pogoy said, who rebounded with 15 points and eight rebounds in a TNT win in Game 3.
“Kasi naalala ko yung last time na zero points ako, yung kay Arwind [Santos] eh,” Pogoy added, remembering some past kerfuffles against the San Miguel Beermen star, mostly in the playoffs too.
As TNT gets closer to another Finals appearance, Pogoy says he’ll try to focus on himself and his own team.
No more shenanigans against opposing players he says.
“Ngayon, iniisip ko na focus lang tlaga sa laro,” Pogoy said.
“Focus na lang sa laro kesa sisirain yung laro ng iba, kaso lang sakin yung nasira eh. Bumawi ako ngayong Game 3. Sabi ko nga kay Amer, "Amer, friends na tayo Amer ah," sabi ko sa kanya. Wala lang naman yun. Tumawa lang siya,” he added.
