TALK 'N Text import Ivan Johnson has been summoned to appear before PBA commissioner Chito Salud on Thursday for the bump on Yeng Guiao in Game One which the Rain or Shine coach was done 'on purpose.'

PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial confirmed that Johnson will appear before Salud at 4 p.m. to give his side on the incident that marred the Tropang Texters' 99-92 win in the opener of the Commissioner's Cup Finals.

The collision happened in the second half during a loose ball scramble infront of the Rain or Shine bench. Hit from the blind side by the Talk 'N Text import, Guiao was crashing into team governor Mert Mongragon.

Guiao later hit out at Johnson, saying the 'intentional' bump showed his lack of breeding.

TnT coach Jong Uichico, on the other hand, said he did not see the play - or even the replay - but said he got an assurance from Johnson that the collision was not intentional.
