After leaving his basketball career of 16 years, former PBA athlete Marc Pingris revealed that he is now trying to focus on farming in his province in Pozzorubio, Pangasinan.

Marc’s fans regretted his retirement from basketball at the age of 39, but they respected the decision of “Pinoy Sakuragi.”

The anime Slam Dunk and its protagonist Hanamichi Sakuragi are the favorites of the retired PBA player so he was nicknamed “Pinoy Sakuragi.”

In Instagram, he bid his fans and every colleagues goodbye.

In an Interview with Cabinet Files, he shared that his decision of retiring was not made overnight.

“Matagal ko pinag-isipan. Pinag-pray ko ng mga ilang weeks. Tapos umuwi ako sa amin at umakyat ng bundok.

“Dun mas nakapag-isip pa ko kung ano ba talaga priority ko ngayon sa buhay.

“Sa totoo lang, kaya ko pa. Nasa kondisyon pa ako.

“Yun din ang sabi nila sa akin pero dahil iba na ang sitwasyon ngayon, ito na napagdesisyunan ko.”

Added Marc, “Kinausap ko family ko, team mates, mga kaibigan muna. Kinausap ko mentors ko, sina Kerby Raymundo at Lakay Danny Ildefonso nagbigay ng advice

“Nagtanong din ako kay Kuya Johnny Abarrientos. Si Capt. Alvin Patrimonio, nagbigay ng insights niya na na-appreciate ko talaga.

“Pati si Ate Cindy [misis ni Patrimonio] nag-advice din kay Danica. Sina PJ Simon at Jeff Cariaso, mga nakausap ko din.”

Pasasalamat pa niya, “Sa lahat ng mga tumawag, nag-text, nag-message, nag-post, gumawa ng fan art, gumawa ng video, maraming-maraming salamat po!!!

“Sa fans ng Purefoods, ng PBA…di mabubuo ang PBA kung di dahil sa inyo.”

Right now, he wants to focus on his family and his farm that is now about to be fully operational.

“Sa ngayon, mag-focus muna ako sa mga business namin at saka sa quality time kasama ang pamilya.

“Babalik din ako sa basketball, di ko lang alam kung paano sa ngayon. Mahal ko kayong lahat mga Kabsat!!!”
