San Miguel Beer’s Daniel de Guzman trended for “wrong tip”


San Miguel Beermen reserve Daniel de Guzman was a trending topic at Facebook on Wednesday after being exposed by a netizen for giving “tips” on his team’s matches in the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup.

In a series of post by a certain Ronz Yuson, he posted his conversation with De Guzman regarding a tip for Beermen’s match against Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings last week.

Based on the convos, De Guzman has recommended to Yuson to a certain Joshua Tan, whom the Beermen player said is the right hand man of San Miguel Corporation sports head Alfrancis Chua, for tips (which is not clear if score ending) for the Beermen-Kings game.

It was then Tan and Yuson who made the conversation where the former asked the latter for P150,000 instead of P100,000 in exchange for “the tip.”

As Yuson agreed with the price, Tan reminded Yuson not to share “the tip” to others. Tan also guaranteed that the tip to be given to Yuson is a sure win.

However, the tip seemed to have failed and Yuson confronted De Guzman regarding the wrong tip given to him by Tan. De Guzman was apologetic to Yuson and is telling the latter to “pababawiin kita.”

In the last photo, the incident seemed to have reached the SMB players and De Guzman was asking Yuson if he is the one who send the screenshots of their convo to them.

Yuson denied it but has told De Guzman that he has shared the screenshots of their convos to others who were duped by the wrong tip.

De Guzman was signed up by the Beermen last year as one of their bench players following the injury of June Mar Fajardo. He has been relegated to the team’s 3×3 team for the 2021 season.

De Guzman is a former player of University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers. He also have stints with several teams in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.
