    Meralco cracks the whip as eccentric forward Kelly Nabong suspended indefinitely  

    Oct 3, 2017

    MERALCO suspended big man Kelly Nabong following a verbal altercation with assistant coach Jimmy Alapag in Game One of the PBA Governors' Cup semifinals.

    According to the team's statement on Tuesday, Nabong was suspended indefinitely for a "conduct detrimental to the team."

    The decision came about after Nabong and Alapag were seen exchanging words on the bench while the Bolts were mounting a comeback against Star Hotshots in the fourh quarter last Sunday at the Alonte Sports Complex in Biñan, Laguna.

    Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and Meralco went on to win the match, 72-66.

    "Kelly Nabong is suspended indefinitely for conduct unbecoming of a PBA player and for conduct detrimental to the team," the statement read.

    Meralco is looking to score another win when it meets Star in Game Two on Tuesday, 7 p.m. at the Sta. Rosa Multipurpose Complex in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
