BOCAUE – The PBA needed to put tape on the floor of the Philippine Arena for the “Christmas Clasico” match up on Sunday.
White lines can be seen on the floor of the massive indoor stadium as league officials used scotch tape to seal the edges of the flooring that proved to be too sharp for play.
“The edges are sharp. It will be dangerous for players who tries dive on it,” explained PBA deputy director for basketball operations Eric Castro.
The officials rushed to tape those edges three hours before tip off, finishing just as Blackwater and Mahindra were doing their shootaround.
