Pinahiya at minura! Mav Ahanmisi recalls ‘pinahiya’ moment during his rookie year


Every incoming PBA rookies has its own “Welcome to the PBA” moments that are either embarrassing or just plain hilarious.

Alaska Aces guard Maverick Ahanmisi just happened to have this embarrassing but teachable moment during his rookie year.

Back when he was still playing with Rain Or Shine, Ahanmisi recalled on his TikTok post that he once received a hard screen from veteran big man Beau Belga, and it shook him.

“Matinding screen talaga. He hit me so hard, I fell to the ground parang nagulat ako eh,” he said.

At the same time, the 30-year old realized that if he was able to endure Belga’s screen, he could also endure all screens coming from other players.

Of course, Ahanmisi also received some tough love from then-ROS coach Yeng Guiao by cursing at him during timeouts.
