Smith or Myers? TNT has until noon to decide

A win behind in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals, TNT KaTropa is working on the requirements of Mike Myers as the coaching staff decides by 12 noon on Tuesday whether or not to play a new import for Game 4 of the best-of-seven title series.

Joshua Smith played the first three games and helped the Texters win the series opener, but after back-to-back losses to the powerhouse San Miguel Beermen, coach Nash Racela is now contemplating on tapping Myers.

Myers flew in more than a week ago supposedly to replace Smith in the Final Four series with Barangay Ginebra after the 6-foot-9, 330-pound big man tore ligaments in his right foot.

But Smith bravely plodded on and hit the winning basket in the Texters’ 104-102 Game 1 win as he repaid his local teammates in kind after they had asked Racela to give him the chance to play in the championship series.

Myers, if he gets the green light to play, will be measured for the 6-foot-10 height limit hours before the 7 p.m. tip off of Game 4 on Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Team officials are confident that Myers will easily make the grade.
