CALVIN Abueva must really be that good that players, coaches, board representatives and even team owners are left crying because of him.
Last season it was James 'Showbiz' Yap who cried wolf, er 'Beast,' due to what he claimed were 'disruptive antics' of Alaska's enigmatic forward.
At the start of this year, it was Meralco coach Ryan Gregorio's turn to cry out over what he claimed were Abueva's tendency to flop.
Not to be outdone, PBA board representative Al Panlilio of Meralco cried out last week alleging that the former NCAA MVP poses a threat to his fellow players due to his alleged foul tactics.
When Jared Dillinger took matters into his own hands to try ang shackle Calvin, it was Alaska team owner Wilfred Uytengsu who cried 'brutality' and accused Dillinger of 'stragulation.'
So, tell me. Is Abueva really that special or have we seen the last of the 'real men' in the PBA with the proliferation of onion-skinned personnel who can't even tame the beast in Abueva?
