Ex- NBA player Renaldo Balkman channeled his inner Latrell Sprewell in a game yesterday. Balkman is currently playing in the Philippines after six seasons in the NBA. Balkman was upset by a no call and went after the refs first. When teammates attempted to calm him down and steer him away from trouble, Balkman took his frustrations out on one.

 

Petron import Renaldo Balkman went wild near the end of a 73-83 loss to Alaska on Friday night, confronting referees, defying coaches, and choking teammate Arwind Santos in a chaotic ending that put serious questions on the former NBA player’s stint in the PBA. The game was all but over in the dying seconds when a frustrated Balkman lost the plot after a non-call on an offensive play late in the match at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, confronting the referees and later shoving away Petron coaches and players who tried to pacify him. The 6-6 former New York Knick first have Petron assistant coach Biboy Ravanes a push, then later shoved Ronald Tubid as his teammate tried to get between him and the referees. When Santos stepped in and retaliated after being shoved by the import, Balkman completely lost it. He held the Petron star in a choke…

Looks like Balkman might just be coming home early. Can’t imagine that move did a lot for team chemistry.
