Chris Tiu has made it official.

The 33-year-old guard has hung his sneakers for good, ending what has been a six-season run with Rain or Shine.

In a short Twitter post on Tuesday, Tiu wrote: "My heartfelt gratitude to every person who has been part of my basketball journey!! Most especially to our Lord who makes all things possible. It’s now time to move on. My heart is full. #17 signing off."

Tiu was picked seventh in the 2012 PBA Rookie Draft, where he spent all of his professional career and won the title back in the 2016 Commissioner's Cup with the Elasto Painters.

Rain or Shine even offered a two-year extension to Tiu, but he ultimately decided to pursue other endeavors as he now focuses on his businesses.
