TOO late, coach?
TNT coach Nash Racela played it coy when asked about a wall the Smart-Araneta Coliseum management has put up at the hallway between the team dugouts following a recent heated confrontation between him and San Miguel Corporation sports director Al Chua.
The wall is some sort of a divider in the hallway that has been installed since Friday during Game Four of the PBA Governors' Cup, perhaps in a move to prevent teams from having altercations at the area.
The move came after Racela and Chua figured in verbal spat at the hallway during halftime of Game 3 of the PBA Governors' Cup semifinals last week.
Racela refused to comment on the wall but took the matter in stride on social media by posting a photo of him at the wall on Saturday before his former UAAP team Far Eastern University faced Ateneo at the Big Dome.

There have also been previous spats at the said area not just by players but even their girlfriends and wives.
The wall, however, is not a permanent fixture as it was gone after the Ateneo-FEU game, and it remains to be seen if this will be something the Big Dome management will regularly put up for every match.
