Last but not the least

Post by Ginebra Tambayan on Mon Aug 20, 2012 9:19 am





ELLIOT Tan didn’t mind being the last player to go up the stage on Sunday -- being drafted alone in Asia’s first play-for-pay league was already a dream come true for the player.

“I’m very thankful. I’ ve been waiting for this moment,” said the Fil-Am guard, a part-time starter for Big Chill in the PBA D-League who now hopes to follow in the footsteps of his father, former PBA player Alex Tan.

Tan, 23, was the 39th and last player to be selected from 57 aspirants in a draft that got as far as the sixth round -- the deepest a draft has gone since the 2003 edition when 40 rookies were selected for six rounds.

He was selected by Ginebra San Miguel with the seventh pick of the sixth round.

Born in San Diego to an American mother, Tan admitted almost losing hope when some teams started passing on their picks beginning in the fourth round.

“My heart dropped a little (in the fourth round),” said Tan, who before suiting up in the D-League usually comes home to the Philippines every other Christmas.

Then came relief when Commissioner Chito Salud called his name as the Kings’ selection in the sixth and final round.

“I was very nervous and kept thanking God for this opportunity,” said Tan, recalling the special moment when he went up the stage and was given the traditional cap and jacket by Ginebra players and executives.

Joining a team that is loaded in the backcourt, Tan said he’s not sure what fate awaits for him with the Kings. But he has vowed to do his best to impress the team’s coaching staff and hopefully land a contract.

“I don’t really know, man,” Tan said.

nagresearch ako about sa mga nakuha nating pick, given na yung 2 first round picks natin na talagang magaling pero almost lahat ng nakuha natin from 3rd round onwards ay may ibubuga, based on may research at pagkakaunawa sa laro nila... sana lang may masogn pa bukod kay Ellis at Jensen..

no, syempre.. Kung magpapatry out ako.. Mas gugustuhin kong marami ang mag try out.. Pero hindi lahat na nasa poll e pude kong ipa try out. Thats why, they drafted na sa palagay nila ay THE BEST PG's. And then the selection process will start sa resume ng practice nila..

Yup tama ka pre.. ang tanong eh SINO ang AALISIN if ever na may isign sila sa mga PINAGKUKUHA NILA.

Sa ngayon tatlo na agad ang PG natin eh JJ, Mike and Roblab

Bukod sa unang 2 picks natin eh pang PG na lahat ng natira.

tulad nlang ung nangyari kay escalona pre ilan season ba sya nkalaro tapos inalis rin..tapos si roblabagala nman ang susunod na sa tipo ko matatangal..
para sa akin kasi nasasayang ung career nila kukuhain mo sa draft tapos hindi mo nman gagamitin..kaya hindi ako naniniwala sa mga try out na yan..tingin o bago pa ang try out meron na napupusuang mga layer ang isang coach

Oo pre... NATANDAAN MO TAPOS NA MAG PA TRY OUT ANG SMC Sinabi na nga eh dami nila inimbita na Rookie Aspirants para mag try out. so bakit panibagong try out nanaman? ang gulo naman nun.... Tama ka me plano na talaga yan, tinatancha lang nila kung mas magiging ok kesa kay Rob Labagala para aalisin na nila si Labagala. Kahit naman hindi nila i Draft ang mga yan magiging free agents lang sila. Pwede nila i sign anytime.
