Turning Point: Pido-Romeo Spat Could Push Global Port to Trade Terrence Romeo

And as expected, one PBA team has already expressed interest even before the shouting incident

If your star player and your coach are not in good terms and have been engaging in heated arguments especially during the game itself, it's not a good sign. It will send a bad message to the rest of the team.

And that's what exactly happened between Terrence Romeo and Coach Pido Jarencio of the Global Port Batang Pier after the two gentlemen had to be separated from one another during a yelling incident that almost went to landing blows. And it happened at a very bad timing when the Batang Pier was fighting to live another day against the Magnolia Hotshots. Unfortunately, the Hotshots were able to come back from a double-digit deficit in the first quarter to move on into the semifinals.

To begin with, this wasn't the first time a coach and a player of Global Port argued during the game as you can recall a few months back, Stanley Pringle was figured in an argument with then Coach Franz Pumaren. Pumaren was no longer around now.

Right after yesterday's incident, both Pido Jarencio and Terrence Romeo played down the incident with both saying that it was only natural that two fierce competitors "bumping heads during the heated moments of the game". Romeo also added that the incident was only a misunderstanding between him and his coach.

Where will this spat go?

After the Pringle-Pumaren incident, one was gone and that was Pumaren.

Now, Terrence Romeo, despite his and Global Port's recent claims that Terrence will remain a Batang Pier, has been the subjects of the trade rumors that include rejected deals from both the Meralco Bolts and the Talk N Text KaTropa. While both deals had been called off, one cannot help but think that this latest shouting episode between their coach and star player might just the push Global Port needs to finally decide to trade away the three-time scoring champion. 

And frankly, Pido Jarencio did a great job in guiding the Batang Pier during Romeo's absence, going 5-6 while losing both of their games since Romeo made his return to the line-up.

Which team will make a trade for Romeo? Sources say that for the past few weeks heading into the quarterfinals, the TNT KaTropa has already expressed interest in working out a trade that will enable them to acquire Romeo. The question is: Will Global Port accept the trade this time around?


One way or another, TNT will benefit from whatever trade that will enable them to acquire Romeo. And whatever deal that is, it will also help Global Port to enter the Commissioner's Cup with fresher mindset. The only question that lingers is this: Will the Batang Pier finally let go of their longtime superstar?
