Narvasa: "Hindi na makaka-ulit sa’kin yan" on Jammer Jamito’s Fake Dunk Act

Jammer Jamito’s side-step dunk stunt may have been recognized internationally but Narvasa is not recognizing it.
Jammer Jamito’s faux act of jump-over-the-guy dunk may have entertained fans but it did not entertain PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa. In a column by Nelson Beltran in Pang-Masa website, Narvasa were quoted to have said: “Hindi na makaka-ulit sa akin yan. Sinayang niya ang oppurtunity niya to show that he belongs.”
It was clear that the PBA Commissioner is not fond of Jamito’s act in the 2017 PBA All-Star Week Slam Dunk contest last April 28. Although Narvasa is not happy by the turnout of the act, it was so hilarious to the fans that it made its way to the NBA show “The Starters”. Jamito even battled with Leigh Ellis on a twitter poll created during the show on to who is the better fake jump-over-the-guy dunk.

With the depth of the Ginebra rotation, it is expected that the new guys to rarely get minutes especially the rookies but as for their game against the Mahindra Floodbuster, the league’s most winningest coach gave these new comers a chance to gain confidence during the late part of the pay off period with a huge lead of as much as 22 points by sharing with them the hardcourt on their way to a win.

Kevin Ferrer, who was instructed by the coaching staff to play a big role in the defensive end usually makes his shots beyond the arc based on his UAAP stint. On this game against Mahindra, he’s able to convert those outside attempts and finally gets his rhythm going.  Ferrer scored 12 points with 3 rebounds, 1 assist and a block who also went turnover-less after a twenty minute exposure mostly in the last part of the fourth quarter.

Former practice player and now a Barangay Ginebra rookie , Jericho De Guzman finally got his feet on a live game inside the PBA court. This 6 foot 11 center’s name was called by Tim Cone during the last minutes of the game and luckily got an opportunity to get his first ever pro points. While Jammer Jamito who was called to play during the fourth quarter also showed his hustle and shooting skills as he scored a couple of shots from mid range in the PBA.
