Batangas stint chance to play, improve for Forrester

James Forrester didn’t deny that he saw his two-game loan from GlobalPort to Batangas as a demotion.

“To be honest, my initial thoughts were a little negative,” he said.

But that changed quickly knowing he has coach Eric Gonzales still on his side.

“That faded away when I went home and thought about it. Coach Eric and I go a long way since our days in Arellano and I know that he’s always looking for my best interest and it was his way of helping me to get some games in. I haven’t been much playing time in the last four years so getting any kind of games in, any kind of minutes is only a positive thing,” he said.

“It’s an opportunity to play, an opportunity to better myself, and focus on the things I need to work on. It’s not really a redemption thing. It’s all part of the process and for me trying to grow.”

Unfortunately, it was a forgettable debut for Forrester, who tallied five points and two rebounds but committed five turnovers in the Batangueños’ 70-66 loss to Cignal HD  in the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup on Thursday.
