Despite the planned implemention health protocols and COVID-19 testing, Marcial is still wary about the pandemic situation.

“Mas balisa ako,” he said. “Practice pa lang kinakabahan na ako. Lalo na kapag pinayagan tayong mag-scrimmage and then ‘yung talagang laro na.”

Because worst-case scenario that the PBA chief foresee is that the numerous players might get infected with coronavirus.

“Kapag pumutok to (COVID-19), patay tayo,” Marcial bared.
