    CEBU CITY – Dondon Hontiveros’ playing years may be far from over as he admitted to getting feelers to join the Asean Basketball League’s Alab Pilipinas.

    Speaking from the lifestyle and basketball boutique, Common Ground, here in the Queen City of the South, the 40-year old swingman said he has had initial talks with Alab Pilipinas team manager Jimmy Alapag regarding a possible stint.

    “Jimmy has talked to me about it but there’s nothing definite. Right now, I’m just enjoying a little time off from basketball,” said the veteran gunner who was accompanied by his father and his wife.

    Hontiveros also came from the basketball practice of his former school, the University of Cebu, where he gave an inspirational talk to the Webmasters. Hontiveros, who has held a host of camps all over the country, said that he wouldn’t rule out any possible coaching opportunities should they arrive.

      “Wala pa eh. But I’m not sure if talks are ongoing with my agent since the deadline for picking up players for the playoffs is on September 25,” he said.
