“After I offered my hand, he asked: ‘Gusto mo suntukan tayo. Sabi ko bakit ako lalaban takot ako syo?’ Sabi niya, ‘eh bakla ka kasi.'I don’t know what he’s upset about. I have too much respect for Ato to do that.”
Those were the words of the seemed to be shocked coach Chot Reyes of TNT after their game 3 win against Petron Blaze Boosters. He looked surprised on how coach Ato Agustin treated him after their win. Coach Ato asked coach Chot for a boxing duel and he looks dead serious about his boxing proposal to him. He was like a volcano waiting to erupt and waiting to release all the stress and all the madness that he's got inside his system.
Honestly, it was my first time to hear coach Chot complaining in front of the media about his colleague, coach Ato, who told him that he's gay and that he's asking him for a boxing duel. That's one of the rarest things to happen in the world of basketball, a coach asking another coach for a boxing duel.
Coach Ato must have his own reasons why he was prompted to say those things to coach Chot. And I believe his reasons could be traced back to the San Miguel vs. Talk 'n Text game that happened last January 28, 2011. It will show you that Coach Ato indeed has some things in his mind that caused him to act that way against coach Chot. I can feel that his anger has reached its climax in the current PBA Governors' Cup Finals and that's why I think there will be more interesting things that will happen between these two great coaches in the next few days.
Take a look at the video below. This video will tell you the reason why coach Ato acted that way against coach Chot. "He can no longer contain his anger."
