MAVERICK Ahanmisi launched a scathing tirade on Twitter against the referees and league offcials after the Adamson Falcons dropped a 75-82 loss to La Salle in UAAP Season 80 Final Four on Saturday.
The twice-to-beat Green Archers rode a fiery windup to survive a scare from the Falcons, who fumed over several controversial calls as well as a wide 39-5 discrepancy in free throws awarded both sides.
Ahanmisi's tweets immediately caught fire on the social media site.
"I'm all for fairplay but I'm not gonna watch this game if the UAAP refs are getting paid by La Salle. It's a joke for real," said the Rain or Shine guard, whose younger brother, Jerrick, plays for the Falcons.
"Hey La Salle I hope you guys are treating the refs to a good a__ dinner after the game cause they definitely fed ya'll tonight," he added.
Ahanmisi didn't stop there as also had some choice words for La Salle guard Kib Montalbo.
Montalbo got in the face of the sophomore Ahanmisi especially in the endgame and that obviously didn't sit well with the former third pick overall of the PBA rookie draft.
"Hey @kibmontalbo idc, you better hope I don't catch you outside bruh lol."
The older Ahanmisi later tempered his tweets, hinting that he was only out for retweets and followers.
"I love how I tweet a 'controversial' tweet just to get followers and retweets," Ahanmisi said. "You think I really care about @kibmontalbo? He was doing he's supposed to do. Bully people. Lol. My brother will tell you I don't baby him."
Less than 10 minutes later, however, he was at it again, attacking the wide discrepancy in free throws.
"5 free throws the whole game? Cmon now lol that's a joke," he posted.
Montalbo later used the same platform to respond to Ahanmisi's tweet, saying, "I meant no harm to your brother. In fact, i respect him as a player and he’s one hell of a player. I was just there just to play defense."
