THE arrival of Terrence Romeo at the TNT camp will certainly make the team’s backcourt rotation loaded. Others believe the point guard position has become crowded.
But for TNT team manager Virgil Villavicencio such problem in the problem in the point guard spot is definitely “a good problem.”
“Everybody deserves a second chance,” Villavicencio told FOX Sports Philippines in a telephone interview. “When we got Terrence, we have envisioned that this is the best way for Jayson Castro to play better. Remember, Jayson was playing so well when Jimmy Alapag was still playing for us and we want to do the same with the arrival of Terrence. It will make Jayson play better and vice versa.”
“It’s such problem we should have because it’s a good problem.”
But in acquiring the multiple scoring champion, TNT’s point guard rotation has become more challenging for coaches who will handle talented players like Romeo, Castro and RR Garcia.
“I think it’s better to put that way, that we have become loaded. The good thing when Terrence came aboard, he mentioned that he wants to take away the burden from the other players,” Racela said in a telephone interview. “I don’t think we’ll have a problem in terms of them getting to play together because they already did play together in the past.”
Romeo and Castro were teammates with the Gilas Pilipinas team for several years now and proved that they can co-exist in the international level.
Garcia was the star of Far Eastern University when Romeo, an up and coming player, joined the Tamaraws and for a few years, they played together and showed they can get the job done. They extended their partnership in GlobalPort during their rookie year in the PBA, until the former became a journeyman.
“The expectations, of course, is to make it work. At least, at this point, what we can see is we’ve become better. We just have to see it when they play,” added Racela.
