On Thursday, pro baller Jimmy Alapag announced that he will be retiring from professional basketball “for good”. He made the announcement through a video posted on YouTube by his friend, Eric Menk.
On the video, Alapag said, “I want to thank Coach Norman (Black) and our entire staff. Just thank you guys for believing in me and giving me another opportunity for one last run.”
In 2015, Alapag already announced his retirement. Along with this, his Talk ‘N Text jersey was also retired during the PBA All-Star Game. However, in 2016, he came out of retirement and played for the Meralco Bolts.
