Joe Devance took a video of himself boarding the team bus shortly after Brgy. Ginebra disposed of the Meralco Bolts, Sunday in the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup restart at the Angeles University Foundation Sports Arena and Cultural Center in Angeles City, Pampanga.
The clip was included in a vlog which the 38-year Fil-Am later on upload on his Youtube channel.
Devance was wearing a face mask but took it off before boarding and addressed the team’s supporters who were gathered outside the venue.
“You guys ingat so much ha,” said the 13-year PBA veteran before putting his face mask back on.
League commissioner Willie Marcial saw the video and disclosed that while Devance didn’t violate any of the strict health protocols which were set in place to protect the bubble, he will nonetheless remind him to be more cautious next time.
“Pagsa-sabihan ko siya to be more careful the next time. Huwag niya na lang tanggalin sana yung mask. Maiintindihan naman siya ng mga fans,” explained Marcial.
“Tsaka dapat ang distance is within one to two meters,” he added.
The Gin Kings currently hold a 4-0 card and will try to make it 5-0 when they take on the struggling Magnolia Hotshots on Sunday, October 25 in the same venue.
