Abu Tratter slams MPBL rule


Abu Tratter decided to play for the Bataan Risers in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball (MPBL) League. However, his eligibility is still subject for screening by the MPBL because of his “height”.

On Twitter, Tratter slams the league as he says:

“In my own land I’m too “American”, In America im too “Asian”… For all of you that are different or don’t “fit in” embrace it cause they only hate you cause you’re the future, have a blessed day!😁#tagalogwasmyfirstlanguage”

A few weeks ago, the MPBL Commissioner’s Office has set a new guideline stating that each team will be allowed to have one Fil-foreign player with 6-foot-4 height limit.
