Last but not the least

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

First topic message reminder :





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.

TUMPAK! aminin man naten, pagdating ng TRAINING ng mga LOCALS naten, milya milya nalang ang layo nila sa mga foreigner kaya ganun nalang kalaki ang agwat ng laro nila sa mga locals naten, pero di naman sila papahuli sa tapang at kung PUSO lang naman ang pag uusapan, masasabi ko number 1 ang PINOY dyan.. anyway, sana talaga iba na ang coach naten kung hindi, malamang hilong talilong nanaman si sioty pano balansehin ang mga players nya.

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.

Maganda ang pagsala nila ngayon. Di agaran ang pagpapirma.. Di gaya dati na draft pirma agad. Ngayon may 2nd phase na sila ng try out. At sa tingin ko dalawa lang ang makukuha jan. Aminin man naten o hindi, mababagal na ang mga PG naten.. At saka yun nga delikado si ROBLAB..

Sa tingin ko talaga si Rob Labagala ang mawawala at ibibigay na rin yung Spot ni Eric Menk sa rookie.

Dapat lang, sayang yung SLOT nilang dalawa, ang laki pa namn ng potential ng 2 first rounder rookies naten, tas napapabalitang mattrade si KG, sana for FUTURE PICK nalang, sobrang dami na nilang nag aagawan sa mga position > PG TO SF,,

Yup agree ako dito... baka makuha pa natin si Greg Slaughter kung Air21 pick makuha natin. Kung hindi naman eh anjan pa si Ian Sangalang. Atleast Legit Center makukuha natin diba?

masakit man pero ok na Bye Bye KG para naman makapag Focus na si Maliksi at Dylan sa SG or pati si Ellis or Jensen kung sino man gagawing 3rd spot sa kanila. For sure kasi isang 3spot at 4 spot eh. Mukhang si kerby talaga ang magiging Center natin. Tapos ung kukuning Import ang PF or palitan sila ni Kerby.

oo nga siguro... kasi hindi naman kukuha ng apat na point guard ang ginebra ng walang dahilan eh... kasi ang 1st option nila coach siot makuha si tiu as our new point guard pero di nangyari kaya kumuha sila ng madaming point guard sa draft kasi ganun sila kapursigido sa pagkakaron ng bagong pointguard ng team so malamang sa alamang may balak nga tanggalin nila ang alinman kila rob at cortez
