3-Time PBA Champ Dondon Hontiveros Sounded Like he Still Wants to Play at 40

Dondon Hontiveros Plays his last game in the PBA

Tonight, the Cebuano Sharp Shooter was misfiring in his last game in the PBA. Scoring only 2 points in 21 mins in 1 of 8 shooting, Hontiveros' hands may not be the same as it was but the 40 year old veteran who is playing his last game today with Alaska may not be so sure about calling it quits. 

Tonight they lost to Rain or Shine with the score of 112- 82, as they officially bid goodbye to the conference in a losing effort with a record of 3 wins and 8 losses.  They are one of the four teams which officially got eliminated and will take their vacations early. 

During the post game press conference, when he was asked what's next it seems like he was a bit uncertain about his basketball career. 

" Statistically it's not good pero physically" - implied by Dondon

Dondon played with a total of 5 teams in a span of 17 years in the PBA. He also spent spent a year in the now defunct MBA league were he was MBA All-Star MVP and MBA Discovery of the Year. Dondon spent five years in Alaska and won one championship with them. 

Marami ako natutunan, nag enjoy ako sa samahan,  Hindi ko makakalimutan yung championship - Dondon Hontiveros

Hontiveros was very thankful for another year with Alaska even though it wasn't a successful one as Alaska has been on the losing end all year long. 

Hontiveros' best year was 2008 with San Miguel in which he averaged 14.8 points in one season. He was one of the crowd favorites and was also a member of the national team, although he was not able to win any gold during that time.
