KOBE Paras' reaction was a bit late, but forceful nonetheless.
Two days after the UAAP handed down suspensions on three players including Ateneo star Thirdy Ravena for rough plays, the son of former PBA rookie-MVP Benjie Paras took to Twitter to express what he felt about it.
And he was by no means amused.
Paras, who is undergoing residency at the University of the Philippines after coming home from a stint in the US NCAA, was apparently bummed that the suspension disquaified Ravena and Co. from the yearend individual awards.
"UAAP, I bet my life that the person who disqualified thirdy doesn’t even hoop or hasn’t even touched/played with a damn basketball before," said Paras in his official _kokoparas Twitter page, punctuating his post with a face palm emoji.
"Y'all so weak," he added.
Ravena was caught throwing a closed fist to Paul Desiderio's gut in the first quarter of Ateneo's 83-66 win over University of the Philippines on Sunday.
The second-generation star was given a warning for unsportsmanlike conduct, but upon further review, the Office of the Commissioner upgraded it to an unsportsmanlike foul.
Ravena has since apologized to Desiderio for the incident, though he won't be around when the Blue Eagles meet FEU this Saturday.
Far Eastern University forward Arvin Tolentino was hit the hardest as he was meted with a two-game ban for throwing a closed fist at Zachy Huang in the waning seconds of the Tamaraws' 78-70 defeat to University of Santo Tomas last Sunday.
UP's Javi Gomez de Liano was ejected from the same game against the Blue after being whistled for two technical fouls, both for unsportsmanlike conduct after he confronted a game official.
He was handed a one-game suspension.
