MANILA, Philippines–Germy Mahinay came into the PBA Rookie Draft looking to fulfill a lifelong dream of making the big league.

If Mahinay somehow gets his name called in Sunday’s proceedings and subsequently secures a contract, it will also serve as a chance for the bulky big man to mend his ways after a moment of madness led to a severe suspension in the MPBL.

“I really made a big mistake that time,” Mahinay said in Filipino when asked about the flagrant foul he committed while playing for Negros in one of his games in the regional circuit last April.

The MPBL handed Mahinay an indefinite suspension and a P100,000 fine after the National University product undercut Joey Barcuma of Zamboanga while the latter was going for a layup in the game held in Binan, Laguna.

While his suspension has not been lifted, Mahinay expressed regret over the incident.

“To the fans, players and coaches who were angry with what I did, I ask for forgiveness and I will try my best to clean up my act on the court,” said Mahinay.
