ang nangyari kasi was that Slaughter, who was still in the process of establishing his residency requirements since he transferred from UV to ADMU, played for Smart Gilas not just in the PBA but also in the Asian Games. hindi pwedeng gamitin na pambutas na "national team commitment" yung ginawa ni Slaughter kasi mismong ang ADMU ay alam na nag-eestablish pa lang si Slaughter ng residency niya, thus hindi siya pwedeng maglaro for another team (i.e., Smart Gilas) in any league.An athlete who is in the process of establishing residency requirements in the UAAP shall not play for another team in any league; otherwise, an additional one (1) year residency shall be required. Such athlete may play for his/her own university outside the UAAP.
yung PBA at maging ang Asian Games will both fall under the category of "any league" because Slaughter played under another team (Smart Gilas) while establishing his residency in the UAAP. ang participation ni Slaughter as a player for ADMU for the Filoil Flying V Pre-season Invitational Cup lang yung pwede based on that same rule since he will play for his own university (ADMU) in that league.
mabait pa ang UAAP if ever Slaughter will be proven guilty of such infraction. one year additional residency lang ang ipapataw sa kanya. sa kung sa ibang liga nangyari yan, Slaughter would have been banned for life.
