Caguioa welcomes Tenorio to Ginebra, but says Helterbrand isn’t done yet





PBA/Nuki Sabio

Superstar guard Mark Caguioa has welcomed LA Tenorio to Ginebra San Miguel with open arms, but he doesn’t see it as a sign that bosom buddy Jayjay Helterbrand is on his way out.

“LA is a real competitor, he has leadership quality and can set direction inside the court,” said Caguioa, adding that it is an opportunity for Helterbrand to show what he’s still got.

“I see LA’s inclusion as a big challenge for him (Helterbrand). I’m sure everyone will be felt challenged when someone is about to take your spot.”

Known collectively as “The Fast and the Furious,” Caguioa and Helterbrand formed one of the deadliest backcourt combinations in the league. But while Caguioa remains an elite player in the PBA after winning the Most Valuable Player award last season, Helterbrand has flirted with the idea of hanging up his sneakers.

Helterbrand, who won MVP honors himself in 2009, actually mulled retiring after the Philippine Cup last season. Caguioa was among those who convinced him to continue playing.

The entry of Tenorio figures to make for a crowded point guard rotation for Ginebra, which also counts Mike Cortez and Rob Labagala as part of its roster. Caguioa sees Tenorio as a good fit not just because of his talent, but also because of his relative youth and his leadership skills.

“I think it’s also a preparation for the future,” said Caguioa. “LA is a young veteran and players look up to him as well.”

Ginebra gave up Enrico Villanueva and two future draft picks to acquire Tenorio, who will be expected to start for the team. Caguioa said chemistry will be the most important factor for the team’s campaign in the upcoming season.

“We just have to come together and play within the system,” said Caguioa.
