This after he claimed that someone from Magnolia disrespected him after the Hotshots won the crown at Ynares Center in Antipolo.ADVERTISEMENT Harris used the disrespect as fuel to help his team win two straight titles. He was also named Finals MVP both times—keeping him too busy to sign up with the Aces in 2010.“But it’s OK, don’t worry about it,” Harris said of the latest incident. “It’s part of the game [and] they’re excited. But it’s something I’ll never forget and it’s great fuel for next year if they (Aces) will have me [again].”Right now, he feels for his Alaska teammates.“It’s heartbreaking, especially with them,” he said. “But the team and the franchise are definitely making a step in the right direction.”And Harris wants to be there when the Aces finally step on Promised Land again.ADVERTISEMENT No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college “They chased me for eight years [to get me here], so it’s my turn to chase them [Alaska management] for a few months now [to take me back],” Harris said after telling reporters what happened after the game.“They mocked us, it was just lack of respect,” said Harris, who didn’t go into mentioning the specific person behind the taunt. “[It was] total disrespect of character for a person to be like that, especially for someone of their age and respect in the league.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe series ended 4-2 after a 102-86 Magnolia win on Wednesday, though the final tally doesn’t really give an idea how close the series was.And coming so close, Harris said, that gave him the “fuel” to come back and do something he did in Puerto Rico—where something very similar happened while he suited up for Leones de Ponce.
