Trading for Taha: A band-aid for Ginebra's bigger problems?


By: Dennis 'D Source' Guillermo
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel finally made a move after dropping its fifth straight loss to San Mig Coffee last weekend when they sent veteran guard Mike Cortez to Air 21 in exchange for rookie forward Yousef Taha.

But despite adressing its need for a big body, Barangay fans are clamoring for the head of coach Siot Tanquincen after watching their talent-laden squad struggle with the offensive sets and chemistry.

"Coach (Siot) has been open to communication and asked the players' input on how we can turn things around," said offseason acquisition LA Tenorio in an interview with Snow Badua of PTV Sports. "Even Mark (Caguioa) has spoken to the team and asked us to stay positive and work together," he added. "It's good that Mark has spoken, because when he speaks, the whole team listens."

"We've been here before," Caguioa also told Badua, "so I'm not panicking, but it's time for the players to take charge when our plays aren't working," added the reigning PBA MVP. "The problem is, some of our plays have not changed, that's why other teams have already scouted them. Players need to be able to surprise opponents and find a way to score."

Injuries have also compounded Ginebra's woes, the latest of which was forward Dylan Ababou's torn ACL and MCL he suffered in their game against San Mig Coffee last weekend. Forward Kerby Raymundo is still recovering from a viral flu, Alein Maliksi from a major spraign, while captain Jayjay Helterbrand is battling his old recurring hamstring injury.

Though it may not be the popular decision at the moment, Tanquincen has earned the right to right his ship, and deserves at least the rest of the season and wait for his ailing players to come back to do so. Getting rid of Tanquincen now will only add to Ginebra's chemistry problems if they are to take in a new system and listen to a new voice in the middle of an already stressful situation. Might as well throw in the towel if you fire the guy now.

Ginebra's main gunner said it best: "Just bear with us. There's still a second round (of the eliminations)," Caguioa advised fans.
