MIAMI -- Remember Terrence Leather, the import James Yap kicked during the imfamous PBA brawl involving Purefoods and Talk N' Text?
Well, Terrence made an appearance in Game 4 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night at the American Airlines Arena. In an interview with PhilBoxing.com, Leather revealed that he now plays pro ball in South Korea, a nugget that was confirmed by sportswriter JungHwan Jason Seo who is also covering the NBA Finals for JumpBall magazine based in South, South Korea.
The 6-foot-9, 226-pound Leather is a product of the University of South Florida. He played for Talk N' Text in 2008 and has had stops in Lebanon and Puerto Rico. Leather, who came to watch The Finals with his wife Sheena, plunked down a cool $9,000 for their front row tickets.
Now 31 and looking lean and fit, Leather hasn't given up on his dreams to someday play in the NBA.
"He belongs in there," Terrence's wife Sheena said, gesturing on the court where the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder are wrestling for the 2012 Larry O'Brien trophy. (Homer D. Sayson)
