Bolick blasts critics after ejection: ‘I’m not playing to be the MVP’

Robert Bolick was left dumbfounded when he was ejected late in San Beda’s 72-58 win over College of St. Benilde on Tuesday.

Bolick was nearing a triple-double with 14 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds before an incident involving him and Blazers guard Carlo Young triggered a scuffle.

The ejection could cost Bolick a one-game suspension, which would take effect on Friday against Mapua, and eligibility to vie for any individual award.

“I can only say one thing: I really don’t care if they hate me, and that’s fine with me. My teammates are telling me that I can still win the MVP, but I told them I’m not playing to be the MVP. I don’t want to play to be the MVP this season. I couldn’t care less. I’m not playing for MVP stats. I’m just playing to win. Give the MVP to anyone else,” he said.

“One thing that they’ll never take away is the win, the love of the game that I bring to my teammates, coaches, and the staff. I really don’t care if they hate San Beda or whatever. That’s fine. But they’ll never take the will for me to win another championship this year and to give back to San Beda.”
