Benjie Paras proud to see son Andre prosper in D-League

For PBA great Benjie Paras, watching his son Andre carve his own niche on the hard court is undoubtedly a gratifying feeling.

“I’m happy because when he came into the D-League, I told him there’s no pressure and he has to do whatever he can to help the team,” he said.

But through three games, the 21-year-old Andre has definitely been making his father proud, averaging 7.3 points, 18.0 rebounds, and 4.0 blocks for AMA Online Education this 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup.

The younger Paras racked up 10 points, 22 rebounds, and four blocks in the Titans’ 95-76 loss to Batangas on Thursday.

Benjie, the only rookie to win the MVP award in the PBA, was in attendance and was glad to see his son prosper with AMA. But the “Tower of Power” wants no credit for son’s solid performance so far.

“It’s all him. You can’t teach rebounds and blocks and he saw that it’s what he can contribute to the team. He’s also not forcing to take the shot,” he observed.
