Mac Cardona makes emotional PBA return

MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATED) More than a year after Mac Cardona attempted to take his own life, a development that sent shockwaves throughout the entire basketball community, "Captain Hook" is back in the PBA.

Cardona returned to the hardcourt as a member of the GlobalPort Batang Pier, playing for his former college coach Franz Pumaren and alongside former De La Salle University teammates Mike Cortez and Ryan Araña.

He was received warmly by the fans at the Araneta Coliseum on Sunday evening, and Cardona responded by putting up a respectable line of four points and two rebounds in eight minutes of action. The Batang Pier lost, 99-109, to NLEX, but for Cardona, the evening was a success.

"Sobrang happy ko nakapaglaro ulit ako ng basketball," said Cardona, who played a couple of games with Zark's in the PBA D-League before finding his way back to the big league.

"Hindi ko in-expect na makakabalik ako sa PBA, since 'yung nangyari sa akin last year," he admitted.
