Chot Reyes slapped with hefty fine

TNT Tropang Giga head coach Chot Reyes has been slapped with a hefty fine following his emotional outburst in the aftermath of their 92-94 loss to Magnolia in the Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner’s Cup late Wednesday.

PBA deputy commissioner Eric Castro confirmed that they imposed a P50,000 penalty to Reyes for storming into the technical committee to rant about the foul called on Calvin Oftana while defending Paul Lee in the crucial stretch of the match.

Aside from that, Reyes was also penalized for saying “bad things in a derogatory manner” while on his way out of the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The league also imposed a P20,000 fine on TNT team manager Jojo Lastimosa for crossing the court during the height of the altercation.

“He (Reyes) was fined because he crossed the court and while exiting Araneta, he was saying bad things in a derogatory manner,” Castro told Daily Tribune in a phone conversation.

Prior to this, the league imposed a P1,000 penalty on Phoenix coach Topex Robinson for entering the court during their game against Bay Area last Saturday.

Robinson lost his cool and entered the court when he tried to confront Dragons import Myles Powell in the third quarter of their 91-101 loss.

Both Robinson and Powell were slapped with technical fouls.

“I just felt that I had to protect my player,” he said after the match.

“It just came to a point that he was taunting. I know it was Encho (Serrano). I just felt that I had to protect Encho.”
