The PBA has banned Petron Blaze import Renaldo Balkman for life from the league after his meltdown last Friday against the Alaska Aces.
Balkman was in the midst of his worst game of the tournament against the Aces, scoring just six points after averaging 28 in his first six matches. After being called for a foul late in the game, Balkman confronted all three game referees.
Balkman has since apologized publicly for his actions, and the Boosters joined him at the PBA office as a show of support.
But Salud did not seem to buy Balkman’s explanation. Apart from the ban, the PBA also meted a P250,000 fine (around 6.000USD) on the former New York Knicks draft pick.
