Mark Caguioa lambasts Ginebra teammates on Twitter


Screengrab from Mark Caguioa’s Twitter page

MANILA, Philippines—Mark Caguioa could really spark some arguments.

After the eighth-seed Barangay Ginebra San Miguel got eliminated by the top-seeded Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters with a 97-84 drubbing in PBA’s quarterfinals Tuesday night, Caguioa took to Twitter to vent out his frustrations against his lackadaisical teammates.

“Dati rati kinakatakutan ang team nato at iniilagan pero ngayon lahat ng team gusto kami kalaban kasi mga tamad and sobrang lambot,” Caguioa said Wednesday morning.

(Before, the league was scared to match up against this team, but now it looks like everyone just wants to face us because of the lazy and soft players).

On March 28, Caguioa also took to Twitter to air his sentiments during Ginebra’s downward spiral during the eliminations.

Caguioa also chastised his teammates’ apparent lack of hustle when playing, a brand that has been associated with previous players of the Ginebra franchise.

“Kilala ba nila si Coach Sonny (Jaworski)? Noli Locsin? Pido (Jarencio)? Bal David? Rudy Distrito? Itong mga player nato makikipag palitan talaga ng mukha,” he said.

(Don’t they know the likes of Coach Sonny? Noli Locsin? Pido? Bal David? Rudy Distrito? These are the players who will grind it out).

He added that not even the Zen Master, Phil Jackson, who won 11 championship rings in the National Basketball Association, could guide his team to the semis.

“They don’t play with heart.”

    More often than not, the truth hurts. More importantly though, what is management going to do about this?

    You’re one of the problem Mark. To begin with, you are a ball hog. Im a Ginebra fan myself since the time of Jaworski. And I haven’t seen a Ginebra player during those time as BALL HOG AS U ARE !!!! Try to look at the last two games of your team with you inside the court. You may be racking up points but your team mates were just standing and looking at you(together with your partner Helterbrand) driving to the basket very hard with reckless abandon.

    I watched you game live in Araneta last night and I have the same feeling as yours. You were slaughtered too easily. The only players who played with their heart were Urbiztondo, Ababo, Mamaril and you. However imho your coaching staff needs overhauling. I do not see the intensity I see in Yeng or Norman. They just sit there watching Greg Slaughter collects more fouls nor were they alarmed and did something when your import played like he just had his circumscision.

    Heheheh…..tapos na!!!

    Baka na sa iyo ang problema, Mark? Subukan mo kayang mag leave ng isang tournament period…baka magka roon ng improvement…

    • Bovs4610

      Agree! then change the coaches. If possible, Tim Cone will be the head coach.

        depende yan sa hari ng San Miguel Corp.
