Joined Meralco: Rookie

How’s the experience jumping from the UAAP to playing with Meralco in the PBA?

Syempre sobrang thankful kasi eto na, nandito na yung pangarap ko as a PBA player and then sa Meralco pa, which is a good organization and good coaching staff. Syempre, thankful ako kasi for sure yung basketball career ko mahahasa sya kasi I’m in a good organization.

What’s your mindset with your quick transition to the PBA?

Siguro ginawa ko lang yung dapat kong gawin and then thankful ako kay god kasi siguro in his way, yun yung nangyari eh. Di naman ako yung type ng player na kukunin ko yung bola at iiscore. It’s just that, parang pumupunta sakin and then it’s a good shot then pumapasok naman. So  ayun.

What’s the feeling joining the Meralco?

Sa teammates, wala naman problema kasi sobrang approachable naman sila. If ano, igaguide ka nila. Kunwari medyo naguguluhan ako, they guide me naman. Parang it’s okay lang kasi it’s a process naman. So darating din, makukuha mo rin yan.

What are your goals this rookie season?

As a rookie, basta ang ano ko lang is to contribute and kung ano yung pwede kong itulong sa team. Kumbaga yung mga awards, hindi ako ganon eh. Kung meron man dumating, yung hardwork ko, yun yung ipapakita ko lang and kung mag payoff sya and may award na yan, then it’s a bonus.

Magcontribute and kung ano yung instruction ni coach na gagawin, yun lang. Yun ang gagawin ko.

What do you think are your strengths?

Siguro yung aggressiveness sa game and yung defense siguro. Kasi yun talaga yung ano ko eh. Kumbaga dun ako nagstart kasi dati kumbaga strength ko na yung defense and yung slash to the basket. Kasi kung ano, aatakihin ko yan eh kahit malaki yan. Yun siguro.

How does it feel playing alongside the likes of Calvin Abueva, Jason Castro?

Parang syempre nung una, siguro di naman sa natatakot. Medyo naiistarstruck lang ako kasi dati pinapanood ko lang tong mga to ganyan. Katulad ni Calvin Abueva na alam naman natin na sobrang angas nya sa court na parang talagang parang pupulihin ka sa court. Kumbaga, siguro pangarap ko din naman to. Labanan ng pangarap. Ipaglalaban ko kasi kumbaga andyan yung sa likod ko yung family ko. Syempre, kung matatakot ako sa kanila, yung pangarap mo mawawala sayo.
