PBA to give 'all-out support' to players involved in stabbing incident

Amid the shock that radiated around the league Sunday following the stabbing incident involving Alaska rookie Jeron Teng, Rain or Shine big man Norbert Torres and PBA free agent Thomas Torres, league commissioner Willie Marcial vowed to give their "all-out support" to the three players.

"Whatever we can do to help and support the players, that's what we will do in the PBA," Marcial told ESPN5, who went to visit the players at the St. Luke's Medical centre in Global City, Taguig. "We know they have their legal from their [respective] teams, but if there's any help they need from us, the PBA will be there to help."

The incident happened just several hours after Teng and Norbert Torres played in the PBA Commissioner's Cup games for their respective teams Saturday night.
