TNT’s Bobby Ray Parks’ reason for taking a leave in this year’s PBA season is not enough to satisfy the minds of team officials as the team owner Manny “MVP” Pangilinan himself questioned the whereabouts of the cager.

MVP takes his demur on Parks sabbatical after posting on his Facebook account a picture, claiming that it was taken on February 25 in San Juan, La Union. 

“I don’t see any mother being cared for, and as far as I know, La Union is nowhere near California,” he posted.

Parks decided to excuse himself in the league and claimed the best course of action for him as well as for his family.

“It is with a heavy heart that I will have to excuse myself and not partake in this year’s PBA season due to personal reasons—which in particular, my family,” Park wrote in his official Twitter account on Saturday afternoon. 

“It was not an easy decision to make, especially since I’ve been in constant talks with the TNT management. But right now, this is what is best for me and my family,” he added. 

The two-way guard could have been a great gun to the team the same way he did during the last season of PBA, 45th season. He pinned an average of 20.10 points and 8.20 rebounds per game at the end of the elimination round of the PBA’s 45th season.

Also, one of the men of the Tropang Giga on its fight in the Clark Bubble in Clark Freeport after posting averages of 22.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.5 steals. 

Nevertheless, MVP concluded his post by saying that, “Judge for yourself.”
