Ginebra shooting guard Scottie “The Hustle Man” Thompson knows a thing or two about working his way to the top. At 24 years old, he is playing for one of the country’s most loved basketball teams and is already making a mark that he’s been dubbed one of the PBA’s fastest rising stars.
So far, the attention over at the Barangay Ginebra camp is the return of Greg Slaughter. “Gregzilla” returns to action Saturday (Feb. 3) against the dangerous NLEX Road Warriors but his playing time will be controlled.
Kia Picanto finally got on the win column, ironically also the first win for head coach Ricky Dandan as far as being a PBA coach is concerned.
San Miguel Beer ran away with another win, this time at the expense of the NLEX Road Warriors. However, the showdown had anxious moments with several incidents that added a bit of color.
The NLEX Road Warriors have so far remained perfect, winning their first two assignments. They won over Kia Picanto handily (119-115) and then turned back GlobalPort Batang Pier. It is clear that the player that is standing out is rookie Kiefer Ravena.
