FIBA Secretariat Pandemic
I am Graham Chua Lim, the Secretary General of the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP).
Water is life, but unlike water, my life has been left barren for so long a time, sucked by a corrupt system perpetuated by the infamously greedy rich in Philippine basketball who, in conspiracy with the crooked FIBA Secretariat of old and farcical former local sports officials, were out to gain control over the sport for personal gratification.
Much worse than sealing him off from any connections to local basketball, for which I had spent time and effort to lift it in my little own way for more than two decades, they forcibly sent me to an exile where I have been physically separated from my wife and two children for the last seven years or so.
Heaven forbid, the curse that had befallen on two corrupt FIBA officials may yet come back to haunt local basketball officials if they make amends to the people that they have offended in this journey.
Face the consequence if they do not do so. For, after all, fire begets fire.
When it comes to the way of life, I have always been guarded by the following words of the great Chinese philosopher Confucius: “Do not do to others what you do not want others to do unto you.”.
