This is no joke. Daniel Orton will meet Commissioner Chito Salud on Friday to discuss the Purefoods' import statement after his team's loss to Kia.

Salud summoned Orton to come to his office at 1 p.m. to explain his side about the comments he made about Manny Pacquiao and the officiating.

On Wednesday, Orton called Pacquiao "a joke" as a professional basketball player and blamed the referees for turning the game into "a mockery".

Orton only made six points and three rebounds in limited minutes hampered by foul trouble in the Hotshots' 84-95 upset loss to the Carnival, where Pacquiao finally nailed a point as a PBA player.
