    While ‘The Beast’ may be portrayed as an enigma, Sangalang said the good thing about his fellow Cabalen is his willingness to listen.

    “Madali namang sabihan si Calvin, e. Nakikinig naman siya,” said the Magnolia big man following the Hotshots’ 89-84 win over long-time rival Barangay Ginebra Sunday night in main game of the PBA Philippine Cup on Father’s Day at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Abueva was ejected in the final period for incurring his second technical foul when he appeared to have bumped Ginebra guard Nards Pinto on purpose.

    On his way out of the playing court, he was seen answering back to the taunts of Barangay Ginebra fans.

    After dressing up in the dugout, he hurriedly left the venue without waiting the outcome of the all-important game.

      Sangalang plans to call Abueva after he goes home or probably the following day.
