Flopper? Kelly Nabong says Terrence Jones for ‘flops all the time’


San Miguel bruiser Kelly Nabong isn’t impressed with Terrence Jones’s antics, saying that the former NBA player “flops all the time.”

Nabong and Jones figured in a shoving match late in Game Four of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup with only 16.3 seconds left.

Nabong and San Miguel teammate Christian Standhardinger crossed paths with the TNT import during a timeout and neither gave way, leading to an exchange of shoves.

San Miguel officials led by coach Leo Austria got in between the protagonists before the situation got worse.

When asked about the incident, Nabong claimed he was only high fiving his teammates after TNT called a timeout.

“It’s fine. That was a little baby push. That was nothing. That was a little soft, softness,” Nabong said.

“That was like a flop push like he always do. Flops,” he added.

Nabong’s statements came after teammate Chris Ross also took a shot at Jones, calling him “mentally a baby” during the Game Three loss by San Miguel in which Jones was fined P20,000 for headbutting Ross in the first quarter.
