Big Chill slapped with P150,000 fine for partial walkout
MANILA, Philippines – PBA Commissioner Chito Salud slapped Big Chill with a P150,000 fine Tuesday.
The Superchargers attempted a partial walkout in the second quarter of their 75-93 loss to defending champion Blackwater last Monday.
“Premeditated or not, the partial walkout violated the rule and there is a fine. You can’t mock the rules of the league,” Salud said.
Salud met with Big Chill head coach Robert Sison and team manager Paul Lee Tuesday before coming to a decision.
“I still have to talk to our team owner regarding the 150k fine. But I think it is fair enough because we are talking of a walkout,” Sison told INQUIRER.net in a text message.
