SHAUN Ildefonso on Monday went to social media to discuss a 'proper jersey retirement' for his father, San Miguel great Danny Ildefonso.
The younger Ildefonso asked the question after retweeting a video of his dad converting a vintage turnaround jumper off Alaska’s Poch Juinio in San Miguel’s 96-83 win over the Milkmen in the ‘Return of the Rivals’ game on Sunday night.
The 42-year-old Ildefonso hardly missed a beat as the two-time MVP scored 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Beermen while dusting off his old moves in front of a sellout crowd at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
That prompted Shaun, one of two Ildefonso sons playing for National University in the UAAP, to tweet about his father’s jersey retirement. He called his father ‘Daddy I’ in the tweet.
“Who thinks Daddy I needs a proper jersey retirement?” wrote Shaun on his Twitter account.

So far, the reception of fans on the tweet was generally positive since Ildefonso had a storied 15-year career with the San Miguel franchise before moving to Meralco for the final two years of this PBA career.
However, it is no secret that his parting of ways with San Miguel was acrimonious, making an official jersey retirement with the Beermen a bit dodgy.
So will it happen?
Well, your guess is as good as mine.
