Four PBA teams fell from quarterfinals of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup over the week.
The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters were the first to exit the bubble in Clark, Pampanga before the Alaska Aces, the Magnolia Hotshots and the San Miguel Beermen followed suit.
The likes of Magnolia players Paul Lee, Ian Sangalang and Jackson Corpuz took to social media their quick updates as they reunite with their loved ones outside of the bubble.
Lee was welcomed by his wife Rubie and daughter Tokyo near Quest Hotel in Mimosa before taking a quick detour at Tokyos’ favorite fastfood chain.
It was an early Christmas vibe for Sangalang, who was all smiles after reuniting with wife Eunice and son Isaiah.
Corpuz spent a quick vacation with former Dyip teammate CJ Perez at Thunderbird Resorts and Casinos Poro Point in La Union accompanied by their partners Mariel and Sienna.
Rain or Shine’s rising star Javee Mocon celebrated his brother’s birthday and soon will be conducting a relief operation in Marikina City for those affected by Typhoon “Ulysses.”
The upcoming semifinals, meanwhile, will be full of history as the Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings take on their Governors’ Cup rival Meralco Bolts while the TNT Tropang Giga and the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters.
Phoenix star Calvin Abueva faced several issues against TNT players, the first one since he hit import Terrence Jones and the second being the feud against Ray Park Jr.
The first four teams which departed from the bubble were NorthPort, NLEX, Blackwater and Terrafirma failing to reach the playoff contention.
