Globalport import in near scuffle with teammate
MANILA – GlobalPort import Markeith Cummings nearly figured in a fist fight with teammate Yousef Taha during the team’s practice session on Tuesday.
According to Snow Badua’s Spin.ph report, the two engaged in a shoving match when the rookie center fell hard on Cummings.
Taha was defending Cummings when the former fell for the latter’s fake.
"Sumakay kasi si Taha sa fake nung import, pero pagbagsak ni Taha, binigyan pa niya si Cummings. Ayun nagkatulakan na," according to source quoted by Badua.
Cooler heads then stepped in to pacify the player.
Before the commotion, Taha was reportedly seen taunting the import for firing an airball.
GlobalPort coach Junel Baculi later scolded the whole team for the incident.
“Nangyari kasi masyado silang nagka-pikunan. Dahil siguro may game bukas. Sabi ko nga sa kanila huwag mapipikon kasi gagawin ng kalaban iyan eh,” said Baculi.
“Pero talagang pinagalitan ko ang team… May passion kami pero we have to check our emotion especially sa practice.”
