    THE stunning action of import Renaldo Balkman confronting on the court no less than his Petron teammates – including a choke hold on Arwind Santos - in the final 20 seconds of a lost PBA Commissioner’s Cup game against Alaska Friday night immediately became a trending topic on social networking site Twitter.

    Frustrated by the supposed non-call by game officials as he went for a shot against Robert Dozier and Cyrus Baguio, Balkman suddenly lost the plot and went ballistic against game officials, and later on, with teammates Santos and Ronald Tubid, and even deputy coach Biboy Ravanes.

    Balkman shoved Tubid, Ravanes, and Santos as they all try in vain to pacify him. The import and Santos later engaged in a shoving incident, before Balkman choked the lanky forward with his right hand to the surprise of the crowd that stayed behind at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.   

    It was a rare scenario hardly seen either in the PBA or in any international cage leagues that it immediately went viral on Twitter.

     Here are some of the tweets:
