Barangay Ginebra San Miguel‘s guard, Mark Caguioa gave hint when he will hang his sneakers for good.

“Kung mawawala ako, makikita ninyo yan, mawawala na lang ako. I’m not going to make any dramatic (fuss about it),” said Caguioa.

Prior to the start of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup, the man who is also known as the “Mark the Spark” signed a fresh one year contract with Barangay Ginebra.

“Parang 50-50 ako. It could be my last year and it may be not,” said Caguioa in his interview during the first-ever PBA Media Day at the Tent Solaire Resort.

Last season, coach Tim Cone gave the 39-year-old a minimal playing time but at the same time he made sure that Caguioa will reach another career milestone.

In their game against the NLEX Road Warriors last October 5, 2018, Caguioa logged probably his season-high in minutes with 23 and scored 16 points. In that game, he was officially enrolled and became the latest member of the 10,000 points club.

It was a testament that Caguioa still enjoy playing the game and the passion for it still flowing.

“It’s hard for me to think about retiring. It’s hard to think about it,” he said. “It’s hard to think about going away or retiring from the game.”

This year, Caguio will be turning 40-years-old, physical conditioning is most likely one of the keys to match-up with younger guys.

“Physically, I still feel good,” he said.


With the 44th PBA season is scheduled to start tomorrow and the Ginebra vs TNT KaTropa match is one of its features, Caguioa is looking forward to collect more championship trophies before he finally drop his PBA curtain.

“That’s all I want, just more championships,” said the seven-time champion and 2012 PBA Most Valuable Player.
