If we are to believe LA Tenorio’s pronouncements, then the other nine squads may have every reason to be wary of Barangay Ginebra’s full potential.
Tenorio admitted that he is still in adjustment mode in terms of fully acquainting himself with Ginebra’s system and style of play.
Nag-aadjust pa din ako. Nu’ng last Friday lang ako nag-start ng full practice with Ginebra, kasi kakagaling ko lang sa national team, tapos nagka-minor injury pa, kaya hayun, medyo mahirap pa,’’ said Tenorio.
But it didn’t exactly look like that on the floor as the prolific playmaker had a dazzling debut as a Gin King.
Though he only scored two points, Tenorio controlled the game for Ginebra in its easy 110-90 win over Global Port last Sunday. Tenorio orchestrated the Kings’ high-octane offense on his way to a near double-double of nine rebounds and 10 assists, as he was named the Player of the Game.
From the looks of it, Tenorio looked as if he had already known his teammates’ game and moves, as he was able to deliver them the ball. He said that’s just exactly the way he likes it, since passing and sharing the ball is really his forte in the first place.
“Medyo nahilo nga ko nu’ng una. Hindi ko pa alam gagawin ko. Hayun, kahit papaano, nakuha naman and nakapagdeliver. Okay nga din sa akin ito, if this is my role. Ito naman kasi talaga laro ko, to make my teammates happy,’’ added Tenorio.
Ginebra coach Siot Tanquincen knows the worth of his prized new point guard in the squad’s campaign this season.
“Malaking bagay talaga si LA (Tenorio). He brings a lot of intangibles sa game, especially his poise,’’ said Tanquincen.
