Times may have changed for PBA legend Danny Ildefonso.

As one of the most thrilling big men the Philippines has ever seen, Ildefonso has had his fair share of epic plays and equally thrilling celebrations.

He more or less popularized the 'raise the roof' celebration during his illustrious time in the pros. 

Now a father and an assitant coach for the National University Bulldogs, it appears that Danny has a new outlook when it comes to celebrating on the court. 

While watching his son Dave play for Ateneo in the winner-take-all Game 3 of the UAAP juniors basketball Finals against the NU Bullpups, Danny saw something he didn't like.

After getting a tough layup to go, the 6'3" Blue Eaglet flexed as he trotted back on defense, eliciting a priceless reaction from his dad: 

After the Blue Eaglets won the championship at the expense of NU, 63-58, however, Danny I may finally let his son do all the celebrating he wants.
