MANILA, Philippines—Lesson learned.

After getting slapped with a lifetime ban in the PBA by Commissioner Chito Salud, Renaldo Balkman vowed that the choking incident won’t happen again.


“I respect the Philippine Basketball Association and @PetronBlaze Organization, this situation will never happen again… it’s a lesson learned,” Balkman posted on his Twitter account.

Balkman added: “I accept all responsibilities for my actions while playing an intense game, I have truly enjoyed my time here playing in the Philippines.”


The six-foot-six do-it all forward again issued an apology to Petron Blaze teammate Arwind Santos for his actions.

“I would like to apologize to @arwindsotnas a person who I truly respect and would never intentionally harm, my actions were irresponsible.”

“I would personally like to thank my fans and teammates who have shown me so much support during this time.”
