ROMEO Travis took exception to a tweet insinuating game-fixing after the Magnolia import declined to take a wide-open shot in the final seconds of a won game against Columbian on Sunday night.
The mild-mannered Travis responded to a tweet by a fan who called the import trash and alluded the game was fixed because of his decision not to score at garbage time in the Hotshors' 118-103 win over the Dyip.
Because I respect basketball. If you are man enough to call me trash. You can come to Shangrila Edsa and we can have a conversation face to face https://t.co/fURzYwOkIr— Romeo Travis (@RomeTrav) October 27, 2019
Travis explained his act, saying he did it out of respect for the sport. The Magnolia import also challenged the fan to meet him face-to-face for a conversation.
“Because I respect basketball. If you are man enough to call me trash, you can come to Shangrila Edsa and we can have a conversation face-to-face,” wrote Travis.
A number of fans and fellow players later leapt to the defense of Travis, explaining that majority of coaches and players frown upon points scored in the final seconds of a won game.
Travis finished with 28 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two blocks as Magnolia got back on track in its quest for a playoff seat.
