The Cangrejeros de Monagas team confiscated the game against Guaiqueríes de Margarita on Wednesday night.
The Cangrejeros troop, a team with poor performance in the Professional Basketball Super League (SPB), decided to take that provision alleging that his rival made an improper lineup by including Heissler Guillent.
In this sense, the Cangrejeros organization stressed that it adheres "to the rules and regulations of the SPB and its decisions."
For his part, Guaiqueríes jumped to give a boost to both his player and the other members of the national basketball team.
“We just want to play”
Guillent assured that he regrets that he is not allowed to play, since during his career he never committed an act of indiscipline.
"The situation has disappointed me a lot after everything I have given to the country," he said.
The point guard stated that both he and his teammates have the same desire: We just want to play basketball.
For this reason, he called for the SPB board to reconsider.
"We have not harmed anyone nor do we seek to be enemies of anyone (...) this is our job and we love to play basketball," he concluded.
